How to Get the Permanent Winter Glow

Dry winter weather really takes a toll on my skin. It’s almost like the air just sucks all the moisture out of my pores! Luckily, I’ve figured out a way to keep my skin hydrated AND give it a gorgeous glow.

Holiday Noir :: Houndstooth pattern & Pink sweater

Happy Thursday everyone!  As much as I love festive colors for the holidays, there’s something in me that always goes back to the classics.  And I love classics, with a twist.  A must-have in everyone’s closet is a tailored black coat.  In my humble opinion, a close second after a black coat is a black and white patterned coat.  It’s just as versatile and it adds depth and texture to any pairing.  This The Kooples houndstooth pattern coat (also adore their black military coat) is an elevated classic, one of those timeless pieces that makes any outfit look sharper and more elegantly pulled together.  It’s cut with a double-breasted silhouette featuring notched lapels and a sleek panel lining and my favorite part… pins!  They’re so charming and playful!  Perfect for the weekend in cropped jeans and sneakers and great with a LBD for night outs, this black and white coat is truly versatile.

I wanted to add a touch of softness to this black and white look, and couldn‚Äôt imagine a better color than pink.¬† Delicate and tender, rose colors are a great way to soften cold weather pairings.¬† A trio of pink ‚Äď blush color sweater, light pink scarf, and nude pink pumps ‚Äď anchored by black and white.

Thank you so much for reading!  And special thanks to Bloomingdale’s for partnering on this post!

Period Piece :: Cape coat & Knee high boots

This cape coat with the tulle ruffle peeking out… I look like a character in a period piece.  Imagine… Set in London, 19th century, a young woman hardened by some traumatic experiences with a mean neighbor joins a group of vampire hunters.  I get to play the main protagonist’s long-lost friend and hope not to get killed off in the first episode.  Speaking of movies though, did you see me in Moneyball?  Remember that really small girl?  Yup it was me… in the crowd… a head in a sea of heads… microscopic… watching the game.  Being an extra on the set of Moneyball was a lot of fun.  I learned a lot and saw true movie magic in the making.  They needed to fill the baseball stadium, so they cloned us.  There was about just a hundred or so of us, probably enough to fill 1/10th of the stadium.  We moved around 6 to 8 times covering each section of the stadium, and in the end, they stitched the whole thing together.  It’s incredible really… 12 hours on set and countless of hours in post-production for a few seconds of screen time.

Now back to fall fashion.¬† I love capes and cape-like pieces for autumn!¬† This Caroline Constas¬†cape coat has a hint of Victorian vibe mixed with¬†contemporary style.¬† I found a few more cape coats and styles that I‚Äôd love to share with you ‚ÄstCalvin Klein double breasted cape coat (under $100) |¬†Milly ruffled cape (under $340) |¬†Stella McCartney long cape (under $760) |¬†Burberry military cape (under $1150).

Happy Monday everyone and thank you so much for reading!
