In the Fluff

For those not keeping track, it’s been a weird Winter for New York and the rest of the East Coast. This past weekend we hit all time lows temps! Brutally cold weather only means one thing for me: faux fur. If you don’t have a faux friend to keep you warm or it’s just not your cup of tea, piling layers on top of layers is your best survival plan. There was a point where I couldn’t feel my face from being outside no more than 5 minutes! However, my goal this Winter is to fight through the temperatures with fashion. I will not surrender and wear sweats, I WILL NOT!

This total fluff of mine is from Topshop. The color is in and guess what? It goes perfectly with an all black ensemble, letting this baby shine on her own. I’ve been trying to find the perfect sombrero for my head shape to wear this Winter, a change up from the usual functional Winter hats. This one flatters my oval face, keeps me warm, and it’s cute too.  Finished it off with boots, thick leggings and a turtleneck bodysuit -no skin in sight, but still oh so sexy.

Questions? What would you like to see (more of ) on the blog?

Fur Realz

I threw on some faux fur over my jacket to keep warm and stylish, but I still felt like I needed some gloves, a scarf and my Uggs. The cold isn’t playing games, it just doesn’t want go away! I can’t get enough of the Canadian tuxedo also known as the denim on denim trend, it’s so easy to dress up with all sorts of pumps or sandals. This time I went back to my camouflage pair from the Cameron Silver for Nine West and mixed some gold accents.

Are you all still layering up? Where is Spring weather?
