Dear Fashion Friend:

This woolen overcoat is an enchanting addition to your Winter wardrobe!  I love the floral design! The beautiful orange and red colors blend to make a cheery and delightful outfit!

What can I say about the model? Her smile and warm eyes tell us that she’s a benevolent soul. Her amicable spirit reminds me of Virginia O’ Hanlon’s wonderful question: “Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?” The New York’s Sun’s Francis Pharcellus Church wrote (September 21, 1897): “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus? It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.”

I hope that your visit to is a lovely one!
