Cape-Coat

For some reason, the manfriend always laughs when I mention my cape. I think he doubts my super-hero powers… I can’t begin to think why.

Currently Craving: Gloves

Gloves and mittens are a tricky accessory – I used to maintain the belief that they were merely a hindrance, a superfluous addition that served virtually the same purpose as pockets (which I am able to insert and remove my hand from with ease when I need to). On the other hand (har har), I feel I am missing a shopping, er fashion, opportunity… Well, that and how amazing are leather gloves for clapping at a hockey game? Thus, here is a round-up of some mittens and gloves that I am just dying to get my hands on in…

Currently Graving: Gloves
Clockwise from top (Tan Leather): Mulberry, Miu Miu, French Connection, Causse Gantier, Tory Burch, Rag & Bone, Cole Haan, Bruno Cucinelli, Vivienne Westwood, Lanvin, Burberry, Coach, and Asos (the Must-Have)
P.S. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Black Out

Back to harsh, cold Winter/reality here in NYC… and I’ve already forgotten about those Springtime pastels, florals, and brights and reverted to black from head to toe. Here’s an easy weekend look that can transition to dinner and drinks by switching up the shoes… Happy Friday, everyone!
