Do you have a best friend? Does he have a big coat too?

As I’m sitting shivering from taking my pup out for a walk, I’m also dreaming of a white Christmas… wait, is that flurry I see outside?  I TAKE IT BACK!

I love the white stuff during the holidays but there is NOTHING worse or more painful (if you’ve experienced a North East winter lately, you’d know the pain) than being caught outside when freezing temps hit.. hard.  That’s why this Christmas, I’m actually hoping for less wintry mix conditions and more for a big puffy coat!

What was once seen as a ski-slope essential is now a must-have for keeping on trend and cozy during the winter months.  Add some fur to the trim on the hood and I’m ready to go. Another great option is to switch up the predictable black coat for a fun color – try a winter pastel!

Below are some perfect style ideas incorporating the puffy coat.

F/W 2014 Fashion Campaigns

August has arrived and that can only mean one thing to us fashion-forward folk: fall fashion is upon us.  There will be no more sweating the days away for much longer.  It is time for coats, boots and knit layers.  However, jumping the gun and throwing all of these pieces on in the still-sweltering heat will give you heat stroke and a few looks.  So, we’ll all just sit back and wait for the cooler temps while lusting over some fall campaigns.  See below for some of my favorites including Burberry (hi,Cara), Balmain (hi again, Cara) and Givenchy (Kendall, is that you?!)

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Happy April everyone!  As if planned out by Mother Nature herself, today was a beautiful first day of the month, that quickly ended with some showers.  But not to worry, I’ll take a month of rain showers once I get to see some gorgeous flowers blooming!  However, we must be prepared to withstand the damp and rainy conditions first.  Below are some of the looks I found that not only incorporate some fashionable styles, they are also completely weather-appropriate.

The essentials for this look will not only keep you warm but dry and obviously trendy.  Grab a traditional (and always conventional) trench coat, pair it with rubber rain boots and don’t forget to grab an umbrella to protect your hair and you’ve got the rain day look down pat.
