So - which ass-kicking boots do I buy?

Give In, Get Warm


It's official. Spring is never coming. Never, not ever. And as I sit here shivering, about 18 months into this season, I am abandoning my ban on sweater purchases. That ban is based in part on sweaters' itch factor, but mostly on the fact that I literally just can't fit another bulky item into the blanket chest I supposedly share, if you believe in a broad definition of "sharing" in which I get to utilize every square inch of the blanket chest to store my stuff and must to cram your things into the bottom of your closet, and, even then, only until I colonize that territory in the name of the republic of Jayn, which, you may have already shrewdly deducted, is not a democracy. I need this $35 Lucky sweater to last me through this interminable season; cute with a long sleeve T and jeans, or even with a blouse and the teeny wide trousers below.

Alas, li'l, it WAS $35. And the long sleeved shirt was $21. One must be quick like a gazelle. Apparently.

Better yet - one must be quick like a Wellesley student racing down to tea to grab a fistful of cookies before fleeing with them back to her room.
