Playing Ruffeo

Convertible mittens and scarfs are quite nice to help stay toasty. Your face, however, is another story. It's hard to keep warm without looking like you're about rob a bank.

For a price (pretty hefty) Seattle's Ruffeo Hearts Lil' Snotty can help you out.

The Classic Doubel Barrel has a hood that converts to a scarfy, collar-like device. Perfect for biking to class on a blustery day.

The Wooley Bomber is super appealing to me: hot color blocking, detachable bandana, and pockets that zip up ("to keep your hands warm and your goodies safe")! I also dig the fact that the bomber is 98% from salvaged materials. Neat and half.

I feel a little skeptical about the NEKKIN BRACE. I'm wondering how many people can pull of this without looking like they're hiding in a hole. Still, the zippers and colors are fun. What do you think?

If not, go a little nuts and custom order something. Just be prepared to pay.

P.S. Attention Coloradans: Ruffeo will be at Colorado College's Fashion Week (I know, strange right?) from February 6-10. They are hosting a sewing workshop, a business seminar, a lunch, a rap performance on Saturday, and clothing sale on Sunday.
