Winter Is A-Coming.

November 11, 2010

It’s that time a year when you wake up in the morning and think, “what’s the weather going to be like?” Especially LA weather can be so unpredictable — 80 degrees one day then 50 degrees the next. Which is why I always keep a jacket on hand when I go to work. You never know what the office weather will be. And let’s be clear — I don’t take a JACKET… just a light coat that will keep me warm, yet not be too bulky or make everyone think I’m about to leave for the day. If you don’t have a work-type jacket, don’t fret. Head to J-Crew! Here are some of my favs:

1. Tweed Harriet Blazer: Sophisticated, put-together and can be work to work or even for a night on the town. Need I say more?

2. Double-drape Justine Jacket: This one is a little less work-looking and more trendy. Chic and very flattering due to the cut, this coat is a winner at work or anywhere you get cold!

3. Merino Necklace Cardigan: For all of you who just want to go cas’ and cashmere… then this one’s for you. Simple and super comfy, with just a touch of sass. Perfect for work and even dinner with your parents… or dinner with a date!

Light Sweaters Made For California Winters

December 11, 2009

With the beautiful California weather, you really don’t need to wear anything heavier than a light sweater or coat. And one of the advantages of living by the beaches out here are having all the cool surf stores! Nope, I’m not a surfer and to disprove the myth that surfer brands only sell surfer looking stuff, I’ve picked out some of the cutest light-California-sweaters perfect for the non surfer. These can all be found at my favorite surf store, Becker’s Surf.

1. Hurley Winchester Plaid Jacket

Though this jacket looks thick, it’s actually no thicker than a regular hoodie material. I know because I’m wearing it now. The hood is removable as well. (This link is from Buckle, but I got mine at Becker’s Surf.. for cheaper!)

2. Element Institute Sweater

I love this sweater so much because of its lightweight material and the asymmetrical closure on the front. The large buttons ad a great touch as well!

3. Lucy Love Riding Jacket

It looks like a heavy pea coat, but it’s just a soft cover up that’s made to fool ya! Plus the contrast in the colors and buttons give this jacket a nice touch.

H&M Holiday Sale!

December 9, 2009

I love H&M because their clothes are so affordable and I am so stoked that they have a Holiday Sale with tons of new clothing and accessories perfect for Holiday parties. Just let me warn you, if you go to their site, and click on Holiday, it’s a mess. It’s so hard to look through their stuff with clothing and shoes flying everywhere you move your mouse, so I do suggest hitting up a store.

However, I did manage to find these on the site and man… I need them… now!

1. Golden Holiday Shoes

For $14.95, you really can’t beat this price. Plus these shoes are the shiznit! Even if you only wear them once!

2. Fabulous Cardigan

$34.95. For Holiday parties and regular parties, you’ll definitely get good use out of this cardigan. The high neck will keep you extra warm and the cable pattern adds the perfect amount of detail without looking too overdone. Hot damn!

An Affordable Faux Fur Jacket Is Always In Style

I swear that H&M always has the best deals. I mean with the economy the way that it is, no one can afford the luxuries that we use to be able to buy. But when the winter sets in and the weather takes a dive, who says you can’t be stylish? This jacket goes for a whopping $79 bucks. Now, I’m pretty sure you can’t beat that anywhere else!

The Anytime / ALL the Time hoodie.

May 28, 2009

Picture 2I am perpetually a cold person, even when it’s pretty hot outside and sunny. I guess that’s no big shock since I had to move back to sunny California from cold New York. Anyway, I’m always looking for the perfect hoodie. My definition of the perfect hoodie is that it’s thin enough to wear ALL the time or layer, its super soft and cozy on my sensitive skin and it’s stretchy so that you can push up the arms and they actually stay.

People, look what I found at TARGET!

NOTE: Buy a size smaller if you like them snug because they will stretch out after continual use (which I know you’ll be doing!)

Oooooh Cardigans!

December 19, 2008

I’ve been resisting the urge to buy more clothing – because my closet is packed and so is my dresser. However, I cannot resist the urge to search the web and web shop without buying. And I found this amazingly comfortable cardigan that’s loungy yet can be dressy on sale for only $20 at Macys! SCORE!

A Peacoat would be nice.

October 23, 2008

I think I have become obsessed with buying coats/jackets and maybe that’s because it’s 46 degrees outside right now. I love peacoats as much as the next person, but having a peacoat that is both flexible and comfortable and STILL warm… well, now that’s just a bargain.

This particular coat is from American Eagle for approx 70 bucks, but you can get a 20% off with the online coupon code, and FREE shipping. Did I hear a bargain? It comes in light grey and navy. I love the gray but I always buy neutral colors. Maybe I’ll go for navy this time. Thoughts?

Which do you like best?

October 23, 2008

Leave me a comment below and tell me which sweater I should purchase. Both are from Gap and both are within the $48-$54 range – not a huge difference. The grey sweater also comes in light greyish-purple. Since I opened my credit card at Banana Republic, I have had the urge to shop at their sister stores. Hell, they even gave me a 10% off coupon. I am such a sucker.

Sweater Re-Con.

January 17, 2008

I always have huge baggy sweaters and have nothing to do with them. Thankfully, Rob and Corinne featured Compai on their show and they showed us what to do with our old sweater.
