Love the hat & boots. The necklace looks like a bunch of oversized grapes. What is it made of?

the only reason why ice here is better than snow there is that there you'll never have a perfect stranger pass you on the street and say "mind yerselves, it's awful slippy i nearly broke my arse a minute ago!" p.s love the outfit, keepin it cosy.


I love those boots =) The neckclase is certainly different ^_^ It almost looks 3D in the last photo.

I love how the snow still gives you the white backdrop; what a great plaid, and I wish i had socks like those!

Irene tagged this Cute

hat's a cool necklace, but i'm not so sure if it completely fits with the outfit...

Linda from SA tagged this Cute

Very cute indeed! The necklace gives the outfit a touch of playfulness; it reminds me of little snow balls! The colour combination of the whole outfit is also A+-status!

um tagged this Hot

Is that even warm?

I'd love to know what materials were used to create that bold necklace.

Sarah tagged this Adorable

The necklace makes me think of planets. Very obedient planets. :) And I love the wild diversity of the dress. I found the blog in NEET, and I've been reading since. I love what you're doing. It's inspiring! Almost everything you've concocted is absolutely amazing. I love how it can even become a cool costume. :) By the way, I adore those boots.

Oré tagged this Cute

The necklace sure makes a statement! Why do some people, like in the interview of a few days ago, say that th money is fo school uniforms? Am I mistaken, or is the money for the actual education of the underpriviliged children in India?

ammakk tagged this perfect winter shot

Wow!!absolutely adorable..perfect outfit with that beautiful skirt-dress &the winter boots'n hat..Totally agree with Scary that the attitude of the folks here is very different too, a young chap(half my age )helped me down the few steps to my flat this morn.It is very very" scary" here..

Love the necklace! You make me think of Dr. Zhivago in this outfit. Beautiful.


@Chanique, the money is being raised for the Akanksha foundation that educates underprivileged children in India. The funds will go towards the educational expenses of their schools in Mumbai and Pune, including school uniforms :-)

Mariah tagged this Cute

Where did the uniform go? This blog seems to get more retarded by the day.

Denise tagged this Cute

One of my favorites but the necklace is a bit much . . . maybe a nice scarf instead?

roe tagged this Cute

I like this a lot actually! The necklace makes it high fashion and gives it a great visual interest (if that makes any sense).
