PFC #22: Cute Cold Weather Shopping Clothes

I apologize for the lateness of my post.  I've been experiencing internet problems, but thank God that has been fixed now!

Now, on to my favorite topic: shopping.  There is such a thing as being dressed incorrectly for shopping, and I'm glad that A Preponderance of Fashion is hosting this unique Petite Fashion Challenge.  The challenge is this: "The weather outside is frightful, but indoor shopping is warm and delightful.  So, whether you have wind, rain, or snow, show me your clothes when shopping for friends or foe!"  I love the fact that this challenge rhymes!  ^_^

It's very important to take into consideration not only the whether outside when you're going shopping but also what you will be shopping for.  If you're looking for a dress, for example, make sure you are wearing the correct clothes for dress shopping, such as a strapless bra perhaps, panty hose, or heels.  However, if you think it might rain/snow, think about your mode of transportation.  If you're driving a car, it won't matter too much since you'll be inside the car where you're warm and dry for most of the time.

I actually wore the outfit above today to go shoe shopping with a friend.  I wasn't planning on buying anything for myself (in fact, I was trying to discourage myself from buying anything), so my priority was keeping warm.  The August Silk dress that I wore is short sleeved, so I paired it with my long black gloves that I got from Club Monaco (all sale items are now currently 50% off, by the way!).  I also wore my black Timberland boots today, because I heard it was going to snow.

However, the highlight of my outfit (and basically what's keeping me toasty warm) has to be this aviator jacket that I got off Ebay here.  I saw this jacket on Wendy's Lookbook a while ago, and I just simply had to have it.  I was thrilled when I saw that this jacket was available still, so I went ahead and bought one.  It's also not bulky, so I don't have to lug too much weight around when I'm in stores trying on clothes.  I love it so much!  In my opinion, if you live somewhere that can have pretty severe weather, a great coat is simply a must.
