Non-Fashion Week – Bag Lady Style!

IMG_3865

It’s “Non-Fashion Week” here at my humble abode.  Why?  Because this week was frickin’ COLD!  Monday started out okay.  It was cold, but not too unbearable.  My day on Monday even started with a solo jam session:

 

 

Then, the temperature dropped to a low of 12° F (-11° C) with about 2 inches of snow on Tuesday.  It was also windy, making the temperature feel like 3° F (-16° C).  I do NOT do freezing weather!  Horrendous.  Since Old Man Winter decided to hang around all week and every inch of my body was covered in triple layers (and I was still cold!), my fashion and makeup went out the window.  I just wasn’t feeling it this week.

Here is my very boring “outfit”, luckily covered with a coat.  The only thing fashionable in this pic are my Doc Martens.  Since they’re tall with awesome traction, these are kind of my “snow boots”:

I do love nature and I’m working on getting in touch with it more, and part of that is accepting that Winter is just a cycle Mother Nature goes through.  I actually don’t mind Winter itself.  If I was able to hibernate like a bear, I would have no issues.  But that’s just not possible at this time.

A lot of goths love winter.  Are you one of them?  

Love & Shimmies,

  1. The cold has eaten away my fashion and makeup this week too! Everything is too drying for my face in this weather so I just layer on moisturizer and layer on two pairs of pants, ha. I have also been letting my boot collection be the only style peeking through. My yellow Docs have been keeping me sane. Stay warm! We’re almost through the polar vortex!!

    1. Yeah, this is going to be a long winter. Sigh. Maybe when the temperature reaches 25 degrees F, I can dab on some makeup. This is “can’t dress cute” weather. At least your yellow Docs add a little sunshine to an otherwise white and gray day. 😀
