Plush Winter Coats

I’ve never been one to get excited by fur, real or faux, but lately there’s something about the coziness of fur that seems so inviting. If I were to wear real fur, I’d look for something vintage. And if I wanted the look of real fur without actually involving animals, there are plenty of faux […]

Leather Jacket Love

It’s as if a switch was flipped and the toasty weather of summer took the bullet train out of town! Even though it isn’t officially fall yet, it sure feels like the right time to pull out sweaters, socks, and a trusty jacket. I’m constantly looking at black leather jackets, even though it wouldn’t be […]

Overall Winner

If there was such a thing as the patron saint of overalls, I think Alexa Chung would be her. Not only does she wear them often, she designed some styles for her recent collab with denim brand AG.

I Heart This Jumpsuit

I really need this jumpsuit in my life. I’m always admiring jumpsuits, but haven’t actually bought one in ages so I think my time has come. What I like about this Madewell jumpsuit is the v-neck, which seems more flattering and elongating than something more closed up. I always worry about fit issues – I’m […]
