As a dog owner, I spend a lot of time outside during the dead of winter, clutching a leash or tossing a ball at the snow-covered park. I am also a native Californian, and even after 10 years on the East Coast, I haven’t quite acclimated to temperatures below 50 degrees. As a result, super warm winter accessories are everything to me. However, I have the habit of losing scarves, gloves, and hats, so I don’t like to shell out a ton of dough for them. That’s why I was so stoked — see, still got a Cali girl hiding inside me — to find these fleece-lined mittens at H&M. They’re majorly cost-effective and feel like a cocoon of clouds around my paws. Like Uggs for your hands, only not as ugly!
Love hats, but hate hat hair? We so relate. Things get even stickier when you throw freezing winds into the equation. And God knows what persnickety motherf**kers ears can be during the winter.
Enter your savior: headbands and headwraps. Whether your boho, vintage sweetheart, or straight out of a Russian romance novel — we’ve got you covered with these 10 picks.
Winter is on its way, which means all of us ladies are at risk for mistaking leggings for pants. But there’s hope! Three shots of Uggcitrin, the only vaccine for the Uggs boot virus, can protect you from purchasing oversized elephant shoes forever. Unfortunately, it does not protect you from Uggs if you already own a pair.
What are you waiting for? Get your Uggcitrin vaccine today! (P.S. I don’t care if other people think they’re ugly — I still desperately want a pair of Uggs anyway.) [NYmag.com] Keep reading »
Even though I grew up in Oregon, where the unofficial state motto is, “We’re always wet!” I’m not sure I have ever bought a truly waterproof jacket. I gravitate toward coats that look like they should be waterproof (my Gap anorak, for example), only to have them soak through and disintegrate in the lightest drizzle, like so many papier-mache art projects on the way to the school bus. A recent downpour in London made me realize that it’s time to get serious. I’m over being wet and cold and miserable, so I’ve rounded up some seriously waterproof jacket options. Not water-resistant. Not water-repellent. Waterproof. They may not be the cutest coats you’ve ever seen, but they will do their job diligently. Read on if you’d like to stay dry this fall…
As the Midwest and Northeast United States gets hit with the millionth snowstorm/blizzard thing (whatever you call it, it’s crappy) of the season, we’re obsessing about staying warm and dry. Hunter wellies are a winter staple for us Frisky gals — these rain boots look cute but protect your feet from puddles. But when it’s especially cold and snowy, rain boots don’t do much to actually keep your toesies warm. Thankfully, Hunter’s cuff socks will make your everyday rain boots perfectly appropriate for stomping around in the snow, ensuring your feet won’t go numb in the process.
