This week Erika of Notes From My Dressing Table is hosting the Dead of Winter Fashion FLash edition. Most of the country is being hammered by cold, wet weather. Its hard to look good when wearing three layers, even harder to exercise. I am so tired of my black puffer coat and waterproof boots I am desperate for fashion advice.
