Stay Warm This Winter: Faux Fur Jackets

I love winter; every fuzzy, cozy, snuggly minute of it. And I adore a faux-fur. I have a faux fur trench coat which I will never, until the day I die, get rid of. I dress so conservatively in other areas, I feel a statement coat save my outfit from being too boring. The Anna Sui one is whispering in my ear.

Winter Round Up: Venus in Fur

I love the way the woman in the painting is ready for ANYTHING. Bring on the bad weather. It was 19 degrees this morning, and I’ve been digging through my pile of scarves. I used to have a cozy orange faux fur scarf, but I can’t find it anywhere. I’m going to assume one of my daughters borrowed it, and buy another. I like Anthropologie’s the best, but the Asos and C.Wonder one’s are worth consideration.

Winter is Coming

Winter is coming. It’s practically already here in the South. My normally oily skin gets dry in the winter, so I bought some of the Clinique Youth Surge Night cream. I’m not really big on a lot of creams during the day, but night creams are in my wheelhouse. And no matter what, I always have a mascara and a red lip on deck, ready to go. Even if I do nothing else, I feel “finished” if I’ve done that. I wore out two pairs of boots last year, so these look scrumptious. With boots, it knee high or ankle high – nothing in between. And a green handbag paired with green nails, because, why the hell not?

I enjoy the high art of Issey Miyake, but don’t always find the collections wearable. But these two, from the Spring 2015 show? I would wear these any day of the week.

Christian Siriano’s runway show was, by far, my favorite. I would wear everything, if I could.

I love how he pulls off clean lines, even with fringe.
