If you’re getting bored of scooping up affordable basics from brands like the GAP, Old Navy and American Eagle, check out Joe Fresh. I hadn’t really paid much attention to Joe Fresh until recently, when I saw a sweater I liked in a magazine and then perused their website, impressed with the affordable prices, seemingly well-made construction and stylish twists on basics. Their winter stuff is especially awesome — comfy, perfectly cut sweaters, chic over-the-knee boots, boatneck striped shirts and puffy coats galore! Click on for some of my fave pieces…
So, I decided to stay in New York City for at least another year, after a recent bout of depression made me realize I wasn’t ready to uproot myself just yet. I found a new apartment in Brooklyn that I’m really excited about (moving November 1), my friends and family are thrilled I’m sticking around, and I’m generally feeling a bit better mentally. But there’s just one problem: WINTER IS COMING. I. Hate. Winter. I mean, I like it during the first snow of the season, and I like the initially chilly days of fall, when I can break out my plaid flannels. But winter? Winter is bullshit. It is long. It is cold. It is dark. It threatens to drive me insane every year. But because I’m sort of vain and I really like fashion, one sure way to at least temporarily pull me from the clutches of the winter blues is to shop for new winter clothes. Honestly, if my outfit is ON POINT and I’m feeling high on my own supply, the cold bothers me a lot less. So, for the sake of my own mental health, I have prepared a list of the various items I — and possibly you, if you also suffer from Severe Winter Hatred — need to acquire in order to survive my 14th East Coast winter.
Geri Halliwell sauntered into a London Christmas party wearing this fabulous outfit that I’m dying to recreate. That white shawl collar coat is divine (and Olivia Pope approved), and the hot pink (or is it radiant orchid?!?!) clutch adds a formal, festive touch to the whole ensemble. Want to steal this Spice Girl’s style for yourself? After all, it’s perfect for all sorts of holiday gatherings. Get all the shopping details after the jump!

A significant amount of my brain space is being taken up with obsessing over winter coats. I know, really intellectual stuff. I am currently creating a puddle of drool on my laptop keyboard over Miranda Kerr’s gorgeous Rag & Bone coat. This bitch is $1,395, however, which is waaaaaaay too rich for my blood. Luckily, there’s a ton of similar jackets for way less currently available online. Here are nine grey and black options I love. Keep reading »
Okay, yeah, sure, you should probably have one or two neutral colored coats in your winter wardrobe – camel, black, navy, grey, whatever. But don’t you want something fun and colorful and bright and crazy to keep you warm sometimes too? Spending a bundle on an eye-catching red, blue, yellow, green or burgundy coat is probably not particularly practical, however, unless you’re Victoria Beckham. (If you are Victoria, let me take a moment to say HI POSH YOU’RE GREAT!) So I found some coats Posh would totally buy, and their affordable lookalikes for the rest of us. Shop on!
