Heading back north

parrot blouseToday is our last day in Virginia (insert tragedy face). It’s been fun (and not too cold!) but now we must return to freezing NYC. It is supposed to be 19 degrees this weekend! Not cool — no pun intended.

Practicing for Fall

I bought a pair of Frye boots months ago. Occasionally I open the box and smell the leathery goodness. I decided that I couldn’t wait any longer and broke them out for a premature Fall post. My feet were sweating the whole time — it was totally worth it to wear my boots.

Dressing Up in Mom’s Vintage

There is a family photo of my mom wearing the shirt I am wearing below. I am about two in the photo and I am sitting on my mom’s lap. She looks lovely in the photo so I was completely honored when she gave me the top to wear. I have dressed the top down a bit, but it is lovely dressed up fancy as well.

Stuff Fashionistas Like Thursday: Sky High Boots

Breaking News! Over-the-knee boots are not just for prostitutes, street walkers, and other creatures of the night anymore, ya’ll. They are actually destined to become a major staple in your Fall 2010 wardrobe. I think these lovely and super tall boots look best flat (on me, that is) but you can also get them with a nice heel for added drama.

These will look great paired with some patterned tights, a nice skirt and a boyfriend blazer, no? And most importantly, the added material will keep you nice and warm when the weather gets cold and blustery.

Will you be wearing over-the-knee boots this Fall?

Ugg-ly cold weather fashions we just can’t quit

The weather has turned cold, the leaves are falling, the temperatures are brisk… it is time. Time for those non-water repellant, non-slip resistant, partially wind-proof, and therefore completely impractical wool-lined boots to make their debut.

Despite their totally unchic, unbecoming, and downright u-g-l-y appearance, Ugg boots continue to make an appearance winter after winter.

The uniform is simple: tan uggs; black leggings; oversized tee; long, black feather-down coat if you are from the North and a North Face Denali jacket if you are from the South.

Perhaps women think Uggs are practical, perhaps they find comfort in looking like everyone else, perhaps they are drawn to Uggs because they look kinda cute over leggings and skinny jeans (my favorite way to wear them).

Whatever it is, Uggs aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. We ladies just can’t quit them.
