    Head down to Bed-Stuy and get some Snowtorious B.I.G. shots.

    One of the biggest things about this blizzard is that I think I'm stepping on a big pile of snow, little do I know, it's a puddle. Good thing rainboots make me feel invincible!

    I can relate. Not as cold where we live, but we have seen our share of snow time and again for the past few weeks, actually a month when I stop and think about it. I venture outside to walk the dog, and after a mile or two find myself turning back, too cold to breath or really exercise. Yes, layer upon layer, scarf over scarf, looking for some relief. Fashion kind of stops here, extreme conditions. Maybe a striking winter hat, or a great scarf, but this is about it. I tried to smile at a neighbor while walking today and my face felt as if it would fall off. Oh green and tender spring time, show your head. We are ready!

    don't know what about this image. something moves me. something hidden in the cold, in the blizzards, behind the thick woolen scarf, in the narrow glimpse of his/her eyes… amazing what "fashion" a little eyesight a person can wear; it communicates so much too, when everything else is stripped away.

    The great thing about snow is that it makes the issue of matching surrounding colours to apparel much less difficult for the photographer.

    The bad thing about snow is that it makes your fingers very cold!

    Being originally from Wisconsin, now living in Dallas (where this morning we awoke to a good 3" of wet white stuff everywhere, go figure), I can say that eventually even the most fashion-conscious reach a point of comfort over fashion and say "the hell with the YSL suede heels, where are my my Lands End galoshes?"

    This is our standard uniform in Montreal from November to April! Am totally smitten with the idea that Sart comes to snow bound cities to share how to look stylish under all the bulk!
    Fitted pants/tights are a must, as are boots and the hood must go up over the head in a storm (or snow will collect in the hood)
    Love you Sart & Garance!

    Cute as this photo is, I don't believe Garance would wear such a boxy parka and flared trousers… I suppose Climate Change's increasing extreme weather patterns will make it harder and harder to look chic! At least we can afford the clothes to weather the storm… (no pun intended..) Here in New Zealand we just had the worst summer ever on record, no flowery dresses this year :(

    LOVE this photo. In the era of i-this, i-that, and me me me – love the between the flakes – behind the wool – thing. I saw her at Jeffrey- she had boots on and warm woolen trousers. Delicious, Scott.

    This is an intense winter for many of us. I feel sorry for those who can't or won't dress for it. Looking good in weather that requires long johns, Gore-Tex, bulky wool, heavy gloves, and weather-resistant boots/shoes is challenging but do-able.

    Call it a blizzard if you want to but I was in the blizzard of '78 in NYC when the snow was over the tops of the cars. This was a snowstorm.

    Fingerless gloves? How brave :D
    I applaud her for having some effort and venturing out in the storm, but she could've gone all out.
