tibetans living on the "roof of the world" in american chucks.
i am proud to say i haven't worn my (low self-esteem) parka in 2 years! i just don't feel like myself in it. so i figured out a solution: layered clothes with a sweater, lightweight windbreaker and a long wool poncho over everything + hat, gloves, 1-2 scarves. my neighbor saw me bundled up and said i looked like a tibetan (well, i am half chinese). i'm not a wintery person, so this tibetan look i call my "survival" look. my philosophy is, when the weather is drab go the opposite in clothes :)
