They say you should invest in classics, so that's what I'm doing.
Hat: made by me (one of my first crochet projects, senior year of high school! I didn't use a pattern, I just went with it.)
Coat: Marc Jacobs, (wool, lined in silk! I honestly don't know why everything isn't lined in silk. It really ought to be.)
Jeans: Citizens of Humanity (which you can't really see but in case you thought I was going commando - I wasn't.)
Boots: Frye (I've had these for a long time and I love them more and more each season.)

These are amazing: each
Joining a neighbor, as though speech
Were a still performance.
Arranging by chance
To meet as far this morning
From the world as agreeing
With it, you and I
Are suddenly what the trees try
To tell us we are:
That their merely being there
Means something; that soon
We may touch, love, explain.
And glad not to have invented
Some comeliness, we are surrounded:
A silence already filled with noises,
A canvas on which emerges
A chorus of smiles, a winter morning.
Place in a puzzling light, and moving,
Our days put on such reticence
These accents seem their own defense.
Dress: Plenty Frock! by Tracy Reese. Tights: Walgreens. Shoes: Coldwater Creek, thrifted. Coat: vintage, thrifted. Necklace: silver sharkstooth on pearl & oxidized silver chain, made by me. Earrings: carved bone, found at an import store.
