Fashion Flash Today!

fashion flash logoThis 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.  If anyone  has ideas on ways to add style to  to winter please share them with me.  And if anyone has a hack for avoiding “hat hair” I think you could qualify for a Nobel Prize.  Stay  warm!
