Before we start, you must view:
Now let me apologize for succumbing to this Christmas in November that seems to have taken hold, but after seeing the Hershey's Kiss jingle bells commercial for the 15th time by November 7th, I give up. In my estimation, by the year 2015, we will forgo Halloween altogether... it's only a matter of time before pumpkin patches are sacrificed in the name of Douglas Fir. Seriously though, on ABC Family there's a countdown to the '25 Days of Christmas Movies' thing they do every year. That's a countdown for a countdown people.
Regardless of when I believe the Christmas spirit should take hold, it has turned decidedly cold here in Portland. To me, that means it's started to dip below 60 degrees. What can I say, I'm weak despite growing up in the Northeast and then living in the Alps (sorta)...
He are some warm and fuzzies. I'd probably wear them all at once, but then again I've been likened to a crazy scarf lady - not unlike a crazy cat lady.

It may seem like a bowl of sherbet ice cream but it actually reads neutral which helps justify paying $181.00 for a beanie. I promise you they didn't sell this Missoni number at Target - trust me, I was there. What a bust. And thankfully, at 100% cashmere, it doesn't feel like it came from Target either.

Here's one I can vouch for. See - honesty is the best policy. And so is endorsement from experience. Most of the luxury crap on here is a virtual wish-list for my next life - the one where I sneeze gold - so I'll be sure to indicate when it's not. This was my jacket today, it's that warm. Unfortunately, it comes from this Canadian chain up here in the Pac NW called Aritzia and doesn't seem to have an online dealer... there are a few stores 'round the country - like San Fran, Dallas, Chicago, and NJ. If you ever find yourself near a store be sure to pop in. Hopefully they don't take as long as Zara to sell online.

I'm referencing the "fur snood" (although I'd take the jacket too). I like that it's burgundy. I think that says "I like to party but not in real fur". And I like that it's called a snood - I will never call them circle or infinity scarves again. Plus, I did my research and Asos' fur snood is cheaper than Topshop's fur snood. BAM!
Virtual damage done: $292.96. Could be worse, my friends, could be worse.
