Red shoes, No knickers

Rise to the occasion ~ Snowchic

When I woke on Friday morning and drew back the curtains to see no blanket of snow I felt cheated. Then I turned on the radio and realised that was reserved for Lance Armstrong. I did actually tweet that joke last week but I’m so proud of it I thought it needed a second outing. Here’s hoping it gets retweeted 10 000 times like @d_whitehouse’ s joke!

Twoking {Tweet joking? Does it work?} aside I was gutted with the lack of snow as I had planned the above outfit in my head just the night before….NOT TO FEAR! Half an hour later and the snow was coming down faster than posters for Viva Forever! YEAHHHHHHH!!!! The January boredom blues have vanished as I am having to Rise to the Occasion and you know me my Shoelets, I do love an occasion. Last year I showed you all how to dress for a day in the snow but I realised it was a play day in the snow ~ walking, snowball fights, building an enormous snowcock & balls {Don’t even think I didn’t do it!} ~ but what about when it’s snowing and we need to head into town to work, serve customers and then make a date at the cinema to see Les Mis?

Fear not. I am here to walk you through my entire outfit and show you how warmth & style can live happily together in an over priced one bedroomed flat in London Town. Fun I know:

*Thermal vest {m&s} & tights {tabio} ~ I DO love a thermal {see here} & especially a thermal that you can tuck into your tights. Unattractive but who cares when your back is toasty warm.

* Cotton long sleeve {gifted} & petticoat {Β£1. chazzer shazzer} ~ Never underestimate the power of a petticoat. Extra warmth as well as protection against an itchy skirt.

* Cashmere joomp {j crew} & wool skirt {vintage} ~ I’ve said it before but once you’ve gone cashmere, you’ll never look back. Warm, luxurious & sexy as hell when someone you like is hugging you!

* Stockings {cut off m&s tights} & suspender belt {m&s} ~ Weren’t expecting those were you!

* The bear coat {gifted from ex~boy’s nan}, belt {chazzer shazzer} & boots {natural shoe store} ~ These hardcore’s are some of my favourites. Due to the fact they’re used primarily for extreme’s they don’t get as big an airing as they should but when they come out I know I’m sorted. You don’t get warmer than fur & a warm, dry boot with a good grip goes a long way.

* HatΒ {crown cap}, scarf {gifted} & mittens {accesorise} ~ I’ve explained to you my love of a good set of accesorises. Check it out here if you missed that lecture.

How’s your layering going my Shoelets?

Any disaster’s? Truimphs? Not even bothering?

Who’s been out in head to toe ski gear?
