Lookbook: After the snow

It's hard to be stylish and creative in the cold weather, especially when you have several inches of snow to deal with, you can't drive and you have to walk everywhere. Plus the majority of my shoes are not made for snow so I was pretty much screwed when it came to shoe options.

What I'm Wearing:
Coat: Banana Republic
Jeans: Rag and Bone
Boots: Sergio Rossi
Earmuffs: Burberry

I'm also wearing really cute leather gloves that have a bow near the wrist but I forgot to take pictures. They did not do a great job of keeping my hands warm, but at least they were cute!

Pretty soon after this when the entire sidewalk was covered in snow, we walked down and took the Seattle Streetcar over to Nordstrom so I could buy my first pair of Uggs. This was the only solution that I had or else, I could not walk without slipping everywhere!

I now know and understand the power of the Uggs. They did a great job of keeping my feet warm and dry with minimal slipping. They may be uggly but at least they get the job done!

  10. I would most certainly perish in winter without my Uggs - yours look fab, and the earmuffs are divine!

    Here's hoping your 2009 is fashionably fabulous, darling Tiffany!

  13. Those earmuffs are adorable! Will the Uggs hold up though once it gets all slushy and wet again?

  14. Oh yes, Uggs. I have had many battles on my blog about Uggs. Though many dislike them, I admit that I adore them in large- almost unhealthy amounts! Also, your earmuffs are the cutest things I've ever seen!
