Trying to Stay Fashionable in the Snow

This is something that is not always easy to do here in Michigan and probably anywhere that it snows. Boots are a must and I find that I am not really liking how they look paired with my vintage dresses. Maybe I need some different boots.... Any suggestions? I've tried the rubber rain boots, but maybe I just never found the right pair, because these didn't strike my fancy either.

Anyways, over the weekend for a quick trip to the farmers market, I donned some knit leggings with a vintage dress (which you can't see underneath the coat) and made do with my Uggs. I kept warm, which is the important part.

I also have been so excited to share with you my new bag, a vintage Louis Vuitton Petit Noe. This is the smaller version of the Noe which was created in 1932 to carry champaign bottles, of all things! My bag is from the 70s, but the design hasn't changed much, if at all, since its birth. I find it so fascinating that women from the late 30s on have enjoyed this bag, making it work with looks of any decade.

How do you still attempt to dress fashionably when the weather won't behave?

You look cute! And really, with all that snow, what can you do? At least you look sensible. I've seen some cute 40s style vaguely warm looking heeled ankle boots which would maybe work in chilly but dry climates, but there is just NO WAY that would work in the Midwest. I admit I end up plodding around in my ugly winter boots. Usually here in Chicago I'm also wearing a down puffy coat, too. Not even the slightest bit vintage, but I just couldn't hack commuting to work any other way. So sadly I have no advice, but I can certainly commiserate on the topic!
