Color Me Fur


This fashion week was all about fur, fur, fur! Either on a hat, a scarf, gloves, and yes, of course jackets! Besides the usual black and camel colored fur, I decided to take a walk on the wild side and purchase a blue fur coat from Ann Taylor LOFT.

Now, you may be thinking I resemble our good ole pal cookie monster, but trust that this coat was a HIT! 

I wore this outfit to the Rock & Republic for Kohls show. I think the coat went quite nice with my silver body con dress and matching tights, gold sequin wedges, and my neon yellow Cambridge Satchel bag! A bit wild, but it definitely turned heads…in a good way!

Even Kim thinks it’s appropriate to wear a blue fur jacket in NYC. She wore hers while filming Kim & Kourtney Take New York.

This blue fur creation by the Row is amazing!! Might not be an everyday throw on jacket, but the ad makes it look so appealing!

The guys from Gossip Girl seemed to enjoy the blue fur. They are just as stunning as the coat!

What do you think about this jacket? Would you dare wear it? Have any colored fur? Are you drooling of the GG hunks?

Tis the Season


It has finally arrived…Christmas Eve is here!

I attended a holiday soiree last night and to whip me into the holiday spirit, I decided to wear something quite festive.

This green tweed bolero with black bejeweled studs trimming the jacket from Forever 21 went perfectly with my black sheer top!

Can’t leave the house without an earring, so you can imagine my excitement when I rumaged through my jewelry box and found these red and diamond vintage’esque earrings!

Little touches of red and green are perfectly OK for the holiday season. Just don’t wear your red skinny jeans and a green turtle neck together for your holiday parties…because I mean…that’s ugly.

Fur Sure


Well New England is finally starting to get chilly. Don’t get me wrong, I love a nice 60 degree day at the start of December, but the holidays are coming and it’s time for some snow boots, gloves, and obviously FUR (faux of course )!

Ann Taylor goes out of their way to try and make me lust for their gems…and it works. Everyday they have some percentage off a sale something and free shipping. It’s too good to pass up!!

I got this toasty, chic, toffee sweater, with a detachable fur trim. Lina also invested in a black one of these beauties.

Gucci decided to incorporate fur wraps into their Fall 2011 line.
