Wore this very practical and very puffy ensemble while frolicking around the West Village the other day. I didn’t think this NYC neighborhood could get any cuter, but with holiday decorations up it somehow has! It’s like another world over there from the grungy Lower East Side area I live in — so much charm, I cannot get enough.
In other random news I discovered a new favorite alcoholic beverage…just in time for winter and easy enough that even I can manage to not screw it up. Take some very chocolatey hot cocoa, add a little (or a lot of) Cafe Patrón, and pile on the whipped cream and sprinkles. You will not regret it. Just figured I’d share!
