Winter dressing reality check


Now that party season has begun (and the reason I've missed a day posting here -- recovering from a midweek party is ROUGH) I'm faced with the dilemma of dressing for parties in the winter. 
The photo above just pisses me off. I'm pretty laid back when it comes to fashion photography -- I'm willing to grant artistic license a lot of the time -- but when you show a girl in a little dress and satin platforms sitting outside in the snow and SMILING? Well, that's just cruel. 

Where are the UGG boots? The coat, scarf, mittens, tights and water-resistant gear?
