Ordinarily sub-zero temperatures and city streets hidden under gobs of formerly white snow and a slush swamp reminiscent of the Bog of Eternal Stench don't inspire me to spend my nights shivering, lining up outside of clubs while salt eats away at very inappropriate footwear. I'll be blissfully happy to stay in with my man and my shoes, where we'll all be safe and warm. Unfortunately, all those inconsiderate parents procreating in the spring roughly three decades ago have resulted in a slew of birthday parties for the next few weekends. My parents were awesome, they brought you all the gift of me in the balmy month of July, not only facilitaing your sartorial choices for those outings that celebrate my existance but also giving you all a more than adequate 6 month recovery period from your crippling holiday shopping debts. Thank you Mom and Dad!
But seriously... how the hell do you all get dressed up in the winter? Do you eschew the chic in favor of the practical or does style conquer all (even the weather). Do you have a go-to party outfit formula you rely on? Dear readers, I implore you: help me look good so my beloved friends have something pretty to look at on their special day!
