Blizzard Beauty!


The Blizzard of 2010 hit the East Coast hard! So what did you wear to keep warm when the weather outside was frightful? Every girl in New England needs a ski jacket for these snowy winter months. I got mine at where else? TJ Maxx!

Of course this also came on my trip to Switzerland. I needed an alternative jacket to the faux black fur coat I recently posted about.This one is perfect for any cold weather day. It is a coco-chocolate brown ski jacket that extends just under the knee. It is great for blocking the wind and keeping you nice and toasty. It has two deep pockets with snap buttons in the front. It also has a soft fur trim on the hood that adds a touch of luxury.

Not a fur loving fashionista? No problem its removable! Another great feature is the removable belt. It adds a little touch of femininity. Some long coats can look frumpy, but the belt is perfect to synch the waist and show some curve.

Another great feature of this jacket is that it zips from the waist up, then buttons from the top to the bottom. So you ask what’s so great about that? Have you ever driven or skied in a full zip ski coat? Its almost impossible to move properly! For skiing, it allows you to bend your knees and for driving, it allows you to get in and out of the vehicle with ease.

It is the perfect cold weather gem!

Here is the original gem!
