When I first read about Sophistique Noir´s month event being outwear, I inmediately thought it was the perfect ocassion to show my new Russian countess cape to you.
As I told you before, I received it on Christmas Day and, as long as it was a very expensive item, I did not expect it at all.
BUT I was a nice girl and Santa decided to pet me a bit.
So I persuaded The Gentle One to go out (in this cold weather!) and take some pictures.
In my mind the plan sounded great: a white landscape and the gorgeous buildings at Univesity Square. I suppose I had an idyllic image on my head derived from the approximate two hundred times I watched Doctor Zhivago.
I do love everything about that film: the music, the actors, the dialogues, the setting.
I was so glad that I totally forgot about two little things: the fact we had never taken pictures in the snow before and, well, the snow itself.
As you can imagine, the shoot quickly became a bunch of snow/ice sliding, half-closed eyes to avoid excessive light, freezy air stiring my hair and red nose.
Not very poetic. Not very Zhivago.

Seriously, you don´t know how deeply I admirate now all those bloggers out there taking pictures of themselves in the snow. They are superheroes!
And well, as for my own pictures, The Gentle One turned out to be my own hero again.
I can´t believe he patiently stood in the snow for fifteen minutes taking pictures while I was complaining about the cold.
Heaven blesses anonymous saints.
