Ready for Red


Winter in New Englad is winding down (if you even want to say we had a winter) and that means our coveted coats are going on sale.

Before I jetsetted to NYC, I ran to TJ’s and found this coat that I had been eyeing for a month on clearance! I jumped for joy, while my sister looked at me like I had six heads.

This red Poleci coat with hidden buttons got set up on a date with fur ear muffs, a fur neck wrap, red skinny jeans, and matching red gloves. You may being saying “a bit much with the red”, but at Fashion Week, anything goes. Really. I saw a man in an ankle length, white fur coat.

Don’t I look so toasty warm at the Moncler Grenoble fashion show…on ice!

Lucky for me, red jackets are H-O-T for this fall. Obviously going to be storing this precious garment away for the fall months.

DVF sent this masterpiece down the runway. Notice the hidden buttons

And how about Catherine Malandrino’s take on a red jacket. Also, hidden buttons.

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!

Gucci sent a nice turquoise fur coat down their runway!

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!

Hidden Gem: $29

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

Emerald City


The moment I saw Blair’s coat on a recent episode of Gossip Girl, I was hooked! As my trusty fellow gem Carolyn knows, once we have something in mind, there is no stopping us. Obviously, I needed this for my trip to the big city. Lucky for me, just as we were counting down the days to Fashion Week, we spotted this precious, emerald, Kenneth Cole gem at Marshalls!

My Kenneth Cole creation fit the bill to a tee. It had a similar color and belted bliss! I paired mine with a similar paisley scarf and chain link bag, just like Blair! The coat also features a unique neckline that can be buttoned to create a ruffled front.

I also accessorized my new favorite coat with a mongolian lamb scarf and black muff. This worked perfectly to stay warm on a cold night in the city!

So I know you are all wondering what is going to be a red hot trend during next fall and winters cold months… JEWEL TONES! That’s right, RUBY, SAPPHIRE and of course…EMERALD!

How Regal!
