HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope everyone had a spectacular holiday!! Today Mother Nature is giving us a blizzard here in Connecticut. And honestly, it is so much fun. The new house is starting to feel like home so I don’t mind being all curled up inside with a nice cup of hot tea, a fluffy blanket, and the interwebs.

But it got me thinking about keeping warm in kawaii. Not so much inside but when outside. Anyone who has been into lolita fashion for a while knows that the materials used for coats and boots are not exactly made for the elements. And if there is one thing that I can’t deal with it is cold feet in the winter. Sure there is a fair selection of sweet boots available to choose from. But they are all form and no function IMHO.

So I am inspired to try my hand at a DIY option in the coming days. I still want that sweet look but also want warmth. I hope I can pull it off without it looking too far fetched. The obvious go-to is Ugg. Some will argue that Ugg is all function and no form. I’m pretty smitten with them for sure so will argue otherwise.

Found a few really cute options to get the creativity flowing. But my real muse will be Baby, the Stars Shine Bright’s Little Princess Coat. Ideally I would like something that coordinates well with that overall esthetic.
