My poor Southern California son is out there in the elements for a Fashion Show he's in tonight & tomorrow.

Hope he looks like this!!LOL!

Always wondered whether or not you post pictures immediately after taking I know you do with some at least.

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

I like the big scarf. Props to you, Scott, for photographing in this weather. I'm from Philadelphia and we got dumped on. Hope that everyone's staying warm!

I love snow. People shouldn't be kvetching about it so much. Life should get completely screwed up by the elements now and then.

Great pic.

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'm hoping to go to Bryant Park this week and hopefully get a glimpse of you and garance!! I'd probably make my year!!!

Great photo ---- she looks a lot like how we're all feeling in the northeast. I, too, always wondered how soon photos were posted after being taken--- now I know! Brrrrrr.

I love the ultra chunky scarf, makes me think of Sandra Backlund (the woman is saintly).

Can't wait to see more stylish people out in the snow: rise to the challenge! One can look good even while shoveling, as happened today on my street.

No thanks......... Thats why I live in California.

wowee what a storm!

Being in California, this is like being on an alien planet ;]


Blogger Kathleen said ... (11:34 PM) : 

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!

Dressing for winter in Canada is fun for about a day...
Also, her pants are going to get soaking wet and cold. Needs some Sorel or Kodiak boots.

Anonymous le lapin amoureux said ... (3:01 AM) : 

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.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:11 AM) : 

I cannot believe that you went out and took pictures today! It was painfully cold! and grossly slushy. yuck. Great picture though =)

Garance says: if you see something pass by under piles of New York snow, a frightening shadow with a hat + big hood + scarf + umbrella blindly following around her man since she can’t see anything with all her armor so that “NOT A DROP OF WATER COMES UNDER MY HAT *%##$@!!!” no need to look any further, yep, it’s me

So is this her?

Oh my God! Freezing in Paris too! We need a big wooly cardigan and scarf. I'm gonna steal my boyfriend's U-NI-TY one cause it's so cold outside, I can't go out without wooly cosy stuff!

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!

You were very brave to take this pic.

great look because necessary for this weather and love the trendy snood!

Aiiii!!!! What a pity, how do all wonderfully dressed / chic / fashonistas will show their talents& creative attitude in such a weather??? When the primar need is to stay cosy and warm...
and NYC FW will not wait ;)

The photo is much better - that outfit, which is very OK, but nothing more. But the question is: who can beat such a stormy blizzard with his / her wardrobe???

On the Street....Blizzard 2010, New York City or... Garance after having spent 5 hours at the hair salon.

The "fashion" is addicted by the winter since nearly 8 weeks here.
The meteorological circumstances really enforce the sartorial creativity of the people.


Blogger Lins,mum of 3, 40ish said ... (5:53 AM) : 

Great photo which sums up the awful weather. Where is everyone else? Needs better boots for the snow, her trousers will be wet to the knees. A good pair of weelington boots....

Is it Garance covering her hair due to fear of water?
*just curious* :D

Is this Garance? Just read her blog and she's hinting that it might be her, but it's so difficult to see detail on her face........ Great looking blizzard, though!

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?"

I must admit that being a New Yorker living in San Francisco,I do miss bundling up against the elements.It gives me a chance to accessorize against Old Man Winter. Other than that, I certainly don't miss that snow!

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 :(

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.
