Icing and Frosting:Inspiration from Winter


Today, much of the US is under a severe winter weather advisory. In St Louis, we're due for an inch of ice followed by a foot of snow. I love how the weather channel says that we will have a "wintery mix". That sounds like fun! A wintery mix of raining gumdrops, candy canes....and DEATH!

Even though the ice and "wintery mix" is yucky, once the sun comes out and shines on everything, it looks like diamonds. While the winter leaves me wanting bold colors and summer sun, I find a lot of fashion inspiration from these harsh, dark months. I hope you enjoy these vintage winter jewels. Stay safe and cozy, sweeties!
