I have also updated the blog's new-ish Writings And Such page with my pysanky art being chosen for my friend Sean Steel's book and SUNY Press's Spring 2014 catalogue cover - last year, I decorated nine eggs on the theme of wisdom in response to his dissertation.

Back to outfits, I adore vintage peplums, but find that this trend-go-round, the definition has morphed into "unfortunate stiff little ruffle sticking out at ribcage-level without reference to proportion of torso or figure." Most of them don't look right to (or on) me, but this ivory and black jacket is a welcome exception. I'm linking with Mis Papelicos for Share-in-Style: Favourite Colours because I've worn this green scarf for three posts in a row.

Further to vintage and old-timey-informed and traditionally-constructed garments that don't mess around, I've got my woolies on. We're anticipating 15 cm / 6" of snow tomorrow and next week's temps will be dropping down near -20 C / -4 F - which is quite a bit warmer than last week! That "swish-swish" of snow pants you hear in the distance might be me catching up: I'm waddling over to Style Crone in time for Hat Attack.
