The good thing about winter fashion is that everyone looks equally dorky. Once in awhile there's an elegant figure who looks like a Russian princess. I saw someone like that this morning. She wore cream-colored wool pants, a beige peacoat, a pink scarf, and a big furry hat. It helped that she was statuesque.

Whereas I look like those little old ladies on the train from Tangier to Casablanca smuggling bolts of cloth under their djellabas. Gah.

I look like a 5-year old with my knitted hat and scarf and gloves, braving the chilly climes of Southern California.

Yes! I miss heat. The buildings and busses and metros all were heated. Here, the AC is still blasting.

That's true. I visited Montreal in the winter and the fricken bus shelters were heated.

I'm sure you look much more glamorous than you give yourself credit for. I sometimes wish our weather was cold enough to warrant more coat and scarf use! Crazy I know.

Hmmm, yes, but despite the cold and the museums I'm not too keen on moving there full time.
