Getting through the long and bitter winters can be awfully brutal and somewhat depressing. But one of my many tricks is dressing up even though you could be lounging in sweats. Don’t get me wrong, comfort is important to me, but spending months in my PJs seems far too dreary. So, for today I put together a look that is very me to say the least. I’ve been craving a faux fur coat and finally found one that can make any outfit look strikingly rich and elegant. And one can never have too many leather skirts. When I found this perfectly pleated skirt, I could not pass it up. We braved the sub zero Minnesota temps and came upon the perfect setting for this shoot… the gold doors complemented the outfit completely.
