Winter Treasures

Peppermint hot chocolate. Big, (faux) furry coats. Walking through the streets of NYC and holding hands inside one of our pockets. Opaque black stockings. Flickering, glittering lights. Seeing my breath in the cold air. Flannel shirts; flannel sheets. Cozy socks. Burrowing my head into a voluminous scarf. Chanukah candles and dripping wax down a beautiful silver menorah. Hopping in and out of stores to escape the bitter cold. Gift giving. Wearing a million layers. Elaborate dinners at one of my favorite NYC spots (Del Posto, you're so incredible). How the streets seem completely vacant after dark. Curling up with loved ones and best friends.

Scarf - Snoozer Loser, Heels - Marc Jacobs Collection, Sequin Bag - Miu Miu




Yes, the Patron Saint of Miu Miu (aka my parents) answered my Hanukkah dreams!

  9. Hold on. You have 2 of the wonderful Miu Miu bags?! The pictures just showed them of different colours. Your Patron Saint(s) is/are wonderful! I wish mine would answer my prayers soon! I am also drinking up all the peppermint coffee/hot chocolate i can at this time of the year because they are only served during Christmas. Bummer.

    You look fantastic, you always do!
