Well although I kind of screwed up the placement of this hat (subsequent experimentation led to much better placement), a quick facebook/twitter poll voted in favour of going ahead with this snow day outfit post all the same.
It snowed steadily most of Saturday evening, laying down a carpet a few inches thick. And, rather like sunshine in summer, there's no telling when we might see it again so it's more or less a British custom to rush outside to appreciate it. We took a stroll down the nearby canal towpath, through the park and back home to cups of tea and biscuits. But I know you're not here for updates of my day's activities - you just want to see my amazing 1940s princess coat and ice skates dangle pin! Isn't it just the cutest? As you may be aware I love collecting vintage kitsch plastic brooches, and this one might be my favourite. The original leatherette 'cord' on the brooch snapped last winter, and I recently (finally) got around to replacing it.
