How Do You Stay Warm Without Compromising Your Style?

I couldn’t figure out what to to wear this morning. It was 8:30, the time I normally leave my apartment to catch the subway to work, and I was still in my pajamas. At first, I pulled on black skinny jeans, flat boots, and a long-sleeved T-shirt, but that is basically what I wore o…

Could Moon Boots Become The New Uggs?

So, um, Grazia magazine says that moon boots are making a comeback and are the way to stay warm and in fashion: “Think ‘Charlie’s Angels’ meets Christie Brinkley!” OK, at least that style description makes things a little bit more conceivable. Problem is, not everyone is Christie Brinkley, and wearing these contraptions can create that…

Quick Tip Of The Day: Warm Your Core And Your Body Will Follow

When the temperature gets down below 30, all attempts at looking good go out the window. I put tights under my jeans, layer three pairs of socks, and wear a knit hat that messes up my hair. One of the bad things about layering is that putting a thick, long-sleeved sweater under a coat ca…

A.S.I.S. Crochet Chain Necklace

Sometimes, when it’s really cold outside, our jewelry drops so much in temperature that wearing it gives us the chills. Since we don’t need another reason to shiver, we’ll be accessorizing with the crochet-covered chains from A.S.I.S. (Angela Spencer’s Irresistible Stuff) for the next few months. With cotton yarn covering most of the chunky chain,…

Puffy Vs. Pea Coat: Which Is Your Winter Go-To?

There are two approaches to winter fashion—either you’re a utilitarian and go for a heavy-duty parka (well, a cute, one of course), or you’re a wool/swing/pea coat kinda gal. There are benefits and downfalls to both. With a puffy jacket, you don’t have the best piece to transition from day to night, but you’re alway…

Selk Bags: The Least Fashionable Way To Stay Warm This Winter

The dilemma of winter fashion—most cute coats don’t actually keep you warm. So, you go the utilitarian route and zip up into a sporty North Face or something else equally puffy. Or, you take things one step further and just cover your entire body in weather-resistant material. Enter the Selk Bag, full-body suits made from…

Glamourpuss: Why Socialites Shouldn’t Be Allowed Near Sewing Machines

Can socialites please stop designing horrible clothing? Who is even letting these women get near sewing machines? Gigi Mortimer and Courtney Moss are two socialite moms. Not just any moms, though. They’re also hockey moms, and it was at a hockey game that the two came up with the idea for an accessories range: “[They]…

Cheapskate: J.Crew Is Having A Mega Sale

Normally, we wouldn’t suggest J.Crew for a “Cheapskate” because the retailer can be a little pricey at times. But since the annual fall sale is going on now, this is the perfect time to stock up on basics. A lot of the sale items are more suited for summer, but we found quite a few…
