Outfit du Jour: Herman & Me

Just came back from the flea market and scored this lovely  portrait of a little doggie gent named "Herman."  I've been drawn to portraits of pets lately-- I  think it's so sweet when people love their furry friends enough to actually paint or have a painting commissioned of them.   It's funny that it's signed with #1 next to his name, so  there was probably a whole series done of him!  This one's going right under "Bunny." 


Regarding the outfit, it was freezing cold (by S.F. standards anyway), so I picked out all my warmest gear but I was STILL freezing my ass off in this outfit:  I wore my wool pants, my favorite thick wool sweater and my ultra-cozy vintage rabbit fur coat and cashmere beret to keep my head warm but was still cold.  At one point my feet were so cold it was painful-- I would take one step and then start  flexing them so that they wouldn't go completely  numb altogether (I'm sure I looked like a freak but better than frozen toes!).  Anyway, for those of you who live where it actually snows, I'll just shut up now about the weather. ♥
