I know - outfit posts have been a little lacking lately, mostly thanks to a week of being very, very lazy and also absolutely horrid weather.  :(  (Plus side: influx of time to work on summer classes, art and commissions.) There was a little spot of sunshine today, freezing sunshine but sunshine nonetheless so I took time to a little photographing of what I wore to see Brave today.  :)  In other news, the much nicer quality of photos is thanks to my little sister who is on break currently and able to take pictures for me.   This coat is one of my favorite winter pieces mostly because it ends at length that doesn't dwarf my petite height (5ft.3), is a gorgeous teal and most importantly has a really interesting ruffled collar.  It's originally bought of Taobao (which is a bit like chinese ebay), and the original translation for the collar style is a "dumpling" collar according to Google translate which I thought was positively adorable.  From the coat on, it was just layering until I felt warm enough topped off with my favorite winter tights that literally go with everything I own because maroon just wins at life.
