10 great coats that won't leave you broke.

It's not officially winter yet, but unfortunately me and the fam are already in our winter coats. I'm always cold and the rest have to just go with my program. My 5 year old is a huge protester when it comes to wearing her winter coat, but as adults we love all the fancy cool fab that comes along with throwing on that coat. Here are ten awesome coats that won't break the bank.

An Illustrated guide to Fall Fashion

Now that fall is here what are we wearing ladies? There is always something that we are into or inspired by among the designer collections, even if an item is out of our price range lets not pretend we don't search diligently for a "version" of  the things we want to wear. Speaking of versions I have compiled an illustrated version of some of the fall offerings. There were so many beautiful  illustrations done by truly talented illustrators it was tough to narrow it down. Enjoy and tell me what you guys are thinking of wearing this fall.

A Summer Journey.

I don't usually get personal on this blog, It is after all a fashion blog and fashion is always, always fun.  The thing is life isn't fun sometimes, and that's been the kind of Summer I've had. Seems I end up taking unofficial breaks from my fashion faerie duties because I'm a total sun worshipper and with New York Summers you use it or lose it.

This summer instead of beach days and cold drinks, my family and I found ourselves in hospital rooms and doctors offices. My dad was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer. I was the only one with him during the diagnosis, and I felt as if cold water had just been tossed directly into my face. There is no fucking way that this is true I told myself, we have spend ALL of 2012 seeing quack doctor after doctor, as we watched him get thinner and thinner, finally he was diagnosed with Sarcoidosis, a lung disease that in his case is very controllable. We were all so relieved, just some medication and he will be good as new. Well not exactly, although  he started on said medication, and was traveling and everything. He never seemed 100% after a series of more texts which included a colonoscopy, (which he was fastidious about) There we were "You have colon cancer".

The first thing my father did was tell me it's going to be fine, I really can't imagine what he was feeling at the time, but it was so typical that he was trying to reassure me. Since then we have watched the chemo and worse but he is fighting, the cancer is rapidly shrinking with no spreading, he's gaining weight and getting out on his own. It's not over but it's wonderful to see him more like himself. It's all been so crazy and consuming but, we are still here.

I'm working on amazing new posts, see you all very soon.

If you are getting married this is beyond exciting!  I however, look forward to seeing which will show up on the red carpet, and what the color switch will be.

Once upon a time, the struggle was very real when it came to finding heart print or shaped items, (trust me I'm an expert). Well it's a new day, and Burberry has set me off.  I can't tell you how thrilled I am at the plethora of heart items available past Valentines day. What I've found is endless, I'm certain something here will tickle your tastes, but if not by all means keep looking. There's tons of colors, flats, chunky heels, the list goes on.  The above Charlotte Olympia's can be found at NEIMAN MARCUS.  This is my time baby! please, please join me.


These are on sale. So cute!
