i pulled my wool turtleneck out of retirement. i took it to paris in winter back in 2005 and ended up wearing it nearly everyday. an extremely handy travel piece.
and my trusty black raincoat. which is way cuter than these pics would lead you to believe.
and my super stylish norwegian shades.
so if you're in venice in december and see kung fu panda strolling your way. it's just me. say hi. okay?
emily horton says
You are so funny! I am sure the Italians will love your style
Elizabeth Jane says
I can’t wait for the Venice class! I’m going to Florence in February but don’t think I’ll be as stylish as you!
Leslie J. Moran says
It would be worth the trip to Venice to find you! Looks like the perfect combo for a comfortable and warm trip!
Susan Cox says
You are so stinkin cute!! Can’t wait for posts about your trip and your very exciting adventures for the next 8 months. I’ll be stuck with 7th graders till the middle of June, so make me proud and do something amazing with your time! 🙂
Lynette (NZ) says
Love! so excited….I think I might be getting a ticket to go with you in the next couple of days 🙂
Had to come back, because “raincoat” and “Frosty the snowman hat” put me in the best mood!
Sharon Chapman says
You are adorably funny! By the way I have been making ROD journals and actually sold a couple. Whoopeeeeee!I love the one I made for me and will send photos as I fill it.
Ti farai notare sicuramente in Italia con il tuo look! Ti serve anche un paio di stivaloni…a Venezia l’acqua è alta!
Baci dall’Italia…ti aspettiamo!!
You will be toasty and the toast of Venezia. (I MUST find one of those hats for myself. Any hints?…)
you look mmmaaaarvelous!
You are a fashionista and will set a new style. Now all you need are Mukluks to finish the look. If you can’t find any in LA (ha, ha) just let me know and I’ll send a pair to you licky split.
Hahahaha. You’ll be a fashion plate over there.
Oh my gosh – that is the best laugh I’ve had today. Kung Fu Panda – bless.
In all seriousness though – while you might look kinda funny on the outside, you will be roasty toasty on the inside. It will be you who has the last laugh 🙂
Gangham Style is definitely the soundtrack to this post, which is the best ‘what i’m wearing post’ EVER!!

LMAO! Love Violet’s coined word – “MAMbling”
Debra Mason says
hehehehehe…thank you. Seriously. Thank. You.
Jane Bumar says
“You have nothing to declare, except your genius!” (with permission from Oscar Wilde) Chic, warm, and witty as hell – that’s my girl!
I say Gangnam style. Can you do the dance?!
Maria Hyman says
Have you encountered a child pointing to you and saying: “Look Ma, its Kung Fu Panda?” Have you ever thought of doing standup comedy? You are freaking awesome, Mary Ann!!! Can you hear me guffawing? Maria
This? Is freaking AWESOME. And I might add the PERFECT antidote to all those “What I Wore” posts by 20-something bloggers. I love it so much!
Best “What I’m Wearing” Post Ever! EPIC!
Elizabeth A says
No pants, or boots, or underwear???? Oh wait – that part of you will be under water anyways! You crack me up.
Add some bling and you could be Mac Mary McMoss.
Who knew you had street cred!
Gloves!!!!! and cute scarf……
I’M. WITH. TARA. Peed my pants. Seriously. Had to take a moment and clean myself up. But if I did bump into you in Venice, you would recognize me, Frosty, because I’d have the bright red nose. Just say back, Hey Rudolf!
Nancy Lynn says
You are way too funny…..that is one of the many reasons I love you and your classes. Congrats on your leave of absence and I hope it leads to great new adventures for you.
Violet Cadburry says
Ms. Incognito – perfect outfit, nobdoy will suspect your are the world famous MAM, intrepidly scouting out new places to die for and commiting them to memory in arty travel journals. It’s not rambling, it’s MAMbling:) Off to dig out an old black turtleneck and my white glasses so I can look the part too.
photocatseyes (Catherine Lucas) says
Bwaaahahahahahahahaaaa…… Wish I could see you panda-ing around in Venice. A turtle neck seems a very solid idea! We have gotten a bit of a cold snap in Western Europe, on top of a lot of water, so be prepared! You are crazy, but good crazy. I love you.
Anna Maria says
Hey, what about galoshes or wellies or rubber boots?
Anna Maria says
You are hilarious!
Michael Kors quote “Wear black and drink white.” Two scarves and you’re set. She who is warm and dry has the last laugh…
susan w says
and on your feet?
Love how you find joy and fun during your day and share it with us. Reminds me to do just that. Thanks you Ms Fashionista Panda
Peggy McDevitt says
Laughing my head off, what a fun post. At least you will be warm and that is important. Can’t wit to go.
Melissa Burford says
Susie LaFond says
You crack me up Mary Ann!!!!!!! Seriously. so here in MN we look like that most of the time, especially when those cold north winds begin to bellow and blow.
Judy Wise says
Oh, you’re so darned cute I can hardly breathe!!
Love the layers.
Judy H. says
Too sexy fo’ yo shorts! Too sexy fo’ flipflops! Too sexy fo’ suntans! Too sexy! Too sexy!! Too sexy!!!
(I think those are the lyrics…)
you are tooooo cute!
I think I have to agree with Tara. You are hilarious!
Lisa M says
I can’t wait to find out whether your sister will deign to be seen with you. 🙂
OMG! BEST. POST. EVER.
Sharon W says
“Fashion fades; only style remains the same.” (coco chanel). I think you’ve found your style groove: an ensemble which can move seamlessly(no pun intended) from Paris to Norway to Venice clearly transcends the ordinary!!!!
you freaking kill me! ha!
