Bonnets, Belts and Boots

This week Paris had some of the worst weather I have seen in my 32 years of living here. Paris was beautiful under a blanket of white snow, but dressing for this occassion left me a little bewildered. So, even though it is not the most poetic of fashion advice, I have learned that if my ears and feet are warm, the rest follows. To be perfectly honest, my grandmother told me that some 50 years ago, but as an adolescent, I listened with respect and left the house without the acessories she had so lovingly placed by the door. I have a little smile for her everytime I pull that bonnet over my head these days.

And today, I say thanks to my new friend Ellise Pierce. Ellise is a fellow Texan and lives in Paris. She is without a doubt one of the most talented chefs I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Please do yourselves a favor and click on to her blog CowgirlChef. Ellise has made a name for herself in Paris. She caters to all things "wonderful food wise". Need to learn how to cook........Ellise is there. Need to have a meal catered ..........Ellise is there. Need to have wonderful meals made by her loving and talented hands and then delivered to your home.......Ellise is there. I entrust entire weeks of meals to her genuis!!!

What is more, Ellise turned me on to these life saving black fur lined boots. They are hand made by a company called n.d.c. When I say they have not been anywhere but on my feet since the first day I purchased them, I am telling the truth. Everyone needs a new friend like Ellise!!!
