New Snow

It's snowing today in the Pacific Northwest.  Too many of us have been wondering when the white mountains would return.
Curled up in our warm living room, I get to watch the wind push snowflakes into the brick outside the windows.  So beautiful.  It always is, though.  The land disappeared beyond our place, enclosing us all in our own little worlds.  I can't wait for the white valley to reveal itself again.  A fresh snowfall never ceases to mesmerize me.
I'm blessed to be able to stay in today.  The morning's coffee has made the transition to cocoa, while the fire crackles.  Now our festive winter mugs seem so much more fitting.

Maybe it will be a white Christmas after all.

As I cannot give you a picture from today, here is an old Thanksgiving weekend pick from up at the cabin.
Who doesn't love a winter retreat to the mountains?

What is your favorite part of a new snow?  Do you prefer to watch it or trek in it?

Tome S/S '14

Tome was beautiful.  There is quite an interaction between draping and structure.  I, personally, am not a huge fan of the larger, structured pieces.  I know that the ideas executed are fairly popular, but I myself am not such a fan.  I like something that mimics the natural flow of the body or more traditional silhouettes.  When it comes to these gorgeous pieces, I am hooked.

Do you appreciate the bolder concepts?
If you looked through the collection, what do you think of the draped pieces?  Interesting?  Yea or nay?

Nicole Miller S/S '14

I don't even know where to begin.  It's hard to take my eyes off these beautiful outfits!
Nicole Miller has done it.  I mean, what do I even say?  Her collection says it all for me.  If you are looking for something a little more upscale than the usual tee and jeans casual, this is the place to look.
These are only a glimpse into some of the concepts she presented.  There were lots of floral and geometric combinations.  Definitely work checking out the runway video!

This first couple outfits here are so dreamy.  If I look away then I have to wake up to my real wardrobe... heh heh.
The embellished pants are beautiful.  Easy enough to dress down or up.
The green print pants are a cool alternative to the usual military camo or cargo style we see.
That floral print couldn't be anymore 'spring'.
And the jackets...oh, the jackets.  One of each, please.  *smile of satisfaction*  The first couple and the bottom cream one are simply lovely.  How feminine and beautiful.
