Winter is still two months away. But, it is already getting cold, temperatures are going lower these days. Just yesterday, I went to departments stores , where winter clothes are already replacing the fall weather clothings. I bought a few too, gettting ready for the winter. How about you ? Have you started buying winter clothes yet ?

No not here where I live which is in Australia, we are in Spring heading into Winter so our weather is starting to heat up and we have had some really nice day's lately. I just love this time of year! makes you want to get outside and go on a walk or a bike ride anyway I guess during winter you get to rug up and sit by a fire and read a book and watch heaps of movie

Hey greenline! Yes, I sure am! It is getting colder here in New York an it has definitely changed into fall and you can tell that winter is on the way and not far behind! And I have started to get my winter clothes too. Last week was my birthday and my boyfriend bought me 2 really warm shirts to wear in the house because it gets really cold in my apartment because I am on the ground floor and we don't get enough heat and I freeze. The we went out for dinner on Saturday night and we stopped in KMART and I finally found sweat pants that I had been looking for. No stores seemed to have any so I was glad to find some. They were mens, but I didn't care and they were on sale for $7.99, Joe Boxer, which is a very good brand and they were thick and warm so I bought 6 pair! So now I just need some new jeans and a new winter jacket in beige or tan and then I'm just about set! Maybe some leggings too!

Hello, Greenline! Wish i were shopping for winter, but is doesn't snow here in my country. We used to experience cold weather during these "ber" months, starting December to February where the northeast moonsoon usually brings cold winds from Siberia and Mongolia, which makes Christmas more merrier.But now, a days we seldom have cold weather during Christmas, maybe that is brought about by the climate change around the wolrd. Hope that you are enjoying your weekend.

I need to be buying winter clothes, I don't even have fall clothes yet. But I guess I will have to try and make due with my leftovers from last year. The only problem is I'm not exactly the same size or something as last year. None of my clothes seem to fit me right. It has been stressing me out here lately because I can't afford any new clothes, especially with Christmas coming up.

Well, actually today I scouted a couple of malls and shops searching for late fall, winter clothes. However, everywhere everything is the same, just the price varies :D I couldn't find anything of my taste. Guess I'll have to endure the cold for a little bit more and scout some more shops later :\

Right. Some of the shops are still gathering the right clotings for winter I suppose. By the middle of November, they should have all the right clothings.
