Happy Holidays from The Style Crone!  The red vintage wool coat with faux Persian Lamb collar and the black vintage hat with rhinestone trim were encouraging participants in seasonal festivities.

I have found this holiday season to be a balancing act!




  1. you have reminded me that I have a large piece of faux lamb, somewhere. all I need is one more idea, so many ideas, so little time!

  2. Hi Judith,

    You kill me with your fabulous frocks! That red coat is extraordinaire, such taste you have!

    Thank you for your comments and a very happy new year to you Judith


  3. Judith, you are the most stylish woman I know. I can imagine this season is a balancing act for you, you appear to be handling it well. It must be hard though.

  4. I have just arrived from my unplugged Christmas holidays with the family, to find you in that fabulous coat beried in the snow, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
    You are soooooooooooo magic, my dear friend.

  5. P.S. Just went back and looked again. I have to comment on the wonderful fingerless gloves, scrunched boots, and beautiful sleeves and buttons on the coat. A great ensemble.

  6. You Are GORGEOUS. Love the RED coat and all yr marvelous accessories! May the beauty & love you radiate outward bounce back to you a thousandfold this season — XO, Janine

  7. Oh my! You look like a stunning Victorian Christmas card!!! I LOVE you in this coat! The fit is like it was MADE for you….and so it was! Much love and hugs!!! ~Serene

  8. I was wondering how you were handling the holidays. You certainly look gorgeous in that coat–it fits you like a dream, and has such beautiful details. It makes your waist look soooo tiny! I wanted to wish you a Happy New Year, full of possibilities and adventures, love and laughter.

  9. That is the perfect Christmas coat! You look ready to go skating on a frozen lake like those Victorian ladies you see in paintings. I love the voluminous sleeves and the flared cut. I love your hat!

  10. Judith, you are amazing and you look fabulous in the red coat (and everything else you wear!) Happy Holidays Dear One.

  11. How lovely you look! I have suffered the loss of the internet connection for a few days, and now that I have it back, I had to check you out right away!!

    Have been thinking of you over the Christmas season.

    Much love,
    Rose from England

  12. Happy New Year to you dear Judith. Thank you for taking us with you as you navigate this painful journey of life without your beloved Nelson. You have never failed to dazzle and inspire me. I wish the best for you and Camille in 2012.

  13. What a gorgeous, gorgeous coat and you had snow for the holidays to boot! Our holiday has seemed unseasonably warm, but it allowed us to take a short road trip without any qualms. I know this holiday was undoubtedly challenging…

  14. Happy New Year to you and Camille, dear Judith. The pain of the loss of our loved ones will always be with us but knowing they are ‘with us’ in our hearts and in our memories will help us go gently through the years, as you know and write of your ups and downs. May 2012 be kinder to us all! More power to your blog!

  15. They look absolutely stunning. And Europe needs you (or more women like you). I was shocked of how sombre the streets looked with all the grey and black. We need more colorful coats!
