Chilly weather is no excuse to stay in on a Saturday night. That said, it puts a damper on your wardrobe. Here are a few options for hitting the town on a cold winter night.
CHEAT SHEET: (things that are cute and also warm)
* Tall boots (see These Boots Were Made For Walking)
* Sweater and jackets you don't take off - especially leather which is toasty (see $6,000? It Not Even Leatha)
* Long sleeves and layering (Love a silky short sleeve number you already own? Throw a long sleeve tee underneath in black or white)

It's getting chilly - time for gloves! As much as I love mittens, I loathe having to take them off to pull out my bus pass, find my keys, etc. This is why I prefer "hobo" style fingerless gloves ala Charles Dickens.

I've been watching way too much Mad Men, I'll just say that right now. Nothing like a cross-country flight to get you hooked on a new show.
Anyway, while the demure 50's look isn't usually my thing, obviously it's coming back in a big way and I'll totally on-board. This post is sort of Mad-Men-in-Paris and pretty D&G heavy - they're doing spectacular things in this genre.
