California Dreamin'

The blustery New England wind can blow all it wants, but I'm keeping warm with daydreams of sunny California. Since the story I'm working on is set in L.A., I decided to create a West Coast-inspired Polyvore set... and fantasize about hopping on a plane, flying off into the sunset! Here are some looks I envision my fictional character wearing... shopping for vintage at Wasteland, cruising the Venice Beach boardwalk, hiking in Runyon Canyon... ok, so these are not exactly hiking clothes, but you get the idea. Here is my dream wardrobe for L.A., where I wouldn't even have to think of a winter coat!



Yes, I'm in total denial that winter is on its way. Tell me, what do you dream of wearing when the weather turns frosty?

I see those Asics peeking out of your Polyvore! :)

What do I want when the weather turns frosty? Cardigans. Big, chunky cardigans. The more the merrier. I'm so predictable, aren't I?

P.S. I bought you the cutest little morsel of cuteness today! I can't wait to send it. Expect a combined birthday/Christmas package soon. And by soon I mean when my tendency to procrastinate is overturned by a sudden urge to be productive ;)

Ahh actually I'm totally enjoying Autumn going into Winter right now! That's because I was really tired of having the same temperatures at Madeira for 6 months! Though I love this Polyvore set! And I could totally wear those things if I was at Madeira, or California hehe!

Oh and when the weather turns frosty I turn to knits, especially chunky and woolly knits please :)

When the weather turns frosty I tend to hang my head in despair that I can't afford all those knits. And also that tights, and therefore slips, are distressingly necessary, sigh.

I also wish I was in California.pff

I pretty much am enjoying the fall/winter weather as cool as it gets here. In the tropics it's basically summer all year so being able to wear some tights and boots with cute cardigans is just a lovely change from the year-long summer dresses. =)
