I need your help!
I did not have a winter coat until 1998. I am very ill prepared for a real winter.
I have 2 sweaters, a bunch of dresses, tights and a couple of pairs of slacks. I have no warm socks. I don’t and won’t own a parka. Sorry, Molly.
I spent most of my life in Southern Texas where time stops if it gets below 30. When I moved to Georgia, I discovered tights and a winter coat but I have to admit that I have never even been in weather that is lower than maybe 20 degrees F.
I also wear a lot of dresses. Actually most of my wardrobe consists of dresses. And these are not winter dresses, they are v-neck cotton dresses. Of course for the Atlanta winters, I just add tights and coat but I just cannot imagine that this is going to fly in Winnipeg… in December.
I literally do not know HOW to dress for a real winter.
Oh yes, and I have very little money too.
I went to my storage space and dug through boxes until I found my old Doc Marten boots. These are not the warmest boots, but they are the only boots I have. I think I have only worn them a total of 3 times, so they also need some breaking in.
I also just bought this new cuddly fleece hat when I was in New Orleans. My friends named him Flibert. I do hope he keeps me warm.
So, what am I supposed to wear in Winnipeg – without making myself look like that kid from A Christmas Story, that is?
