Normally in Cleveland, Ohio, the winter drags on and on, and we all cry about wishing summer would get here. This year, however, it seems that everything has flipped around. When I walked out my door this September morning into yet another day of stifling, muggy heat I found myself thinking, When is winter going to get here!?
With that in mind, I chose to design an outfit for the We love the cold! contest.
In my opinion, you cannot get through the winter without a good selection of wool skirts. I love the idea of pairing a masculine herringbone with a peek of ruffled petticoat underneath. Add a high waist, black buttons and a white ruffled top and you have an outfit that is a little bit steampunk while still being wearable. This would also be adorable with a scarf or cardigan for extra warmth.

I have always sought how to bring in some steampunk charm into everyday routine. I consider myself too old to cosplay on everyday basis, but this looks so positively blendable that this must he it!

I wouldn't consider it Steam punk. More of a Modern style. . . . Steam punk would indicate that there is a fictional Victorian styling to it. There is none of that.

I said it was a little bit steam punk, not over the top Victorian. Mostly the high waist and petticoat were what I was talking about.

This is so pretty! I love the combination of the practical warm wool which is then contrasted with the somewhat frivolous ruffles that peak out from underneath. I also like that although it has a high waist, it doesn't seem to be 'too high' on the figure.

I love that you used the word steam punk. This is beautiful. What's that thing those kids do on face book? Oh yes. I LIKE. :)
