Sale Alert: Since winter isn't going anywhere

It is so cold today! With no end to winter in sight, it makes no sense to start shopping for summer linen and tanks. Instead, take advantage of the sales and stock on enough wool, tweed and down to get you through Easter:
  • J. Crew - Good discounts on lady coats, blazers and sweaters. Still, very expensive for those of us who remember the good ol' days of J. Crew.
  • Banana Republic - Some good deals on sweaters, pants and blazers. Don't guestimate your size though. There has been a recent campaign to push everything up two sizes.
  • Nordstroms - Look at how warm! You would be a pink marshmallow of warmth! Plus, lots of sweaters and accessories.
  • Macy's - I may crack and have to buy a pair of suede boots...if so, these are cute-ish and on sale.
Yikes! If it doesn't start to warm up soon, my fashion sense may dissolve altogether. Next time you'll see me I'll be wearing this with a beanie and a pair of uggs. Oooh..."maximum thermal efficiency."

umm.. hate to break this to you, but "no end in sight" equals.. the weather in San Francisco. Yep, it isn't going to be really "warm" again, until September. Enjoy! Colorado and North Carolina, however.. perfect springs and summers for cute peep toed shoes and summer dresses!

I thought you said Colorado was freezing cold?! At least here it's a fluke to have snow. What do you think about those boots? Too ugly?

it was cold, but beautiful. but it only snows a couple times a year and gets warm again quickly. hard to tell abou those boots.. i'd have to see them in person. how would you wear them?
