Send a Fashionable Hello

Gearing up for ‘snow-pocalypse’

Gearing up for ‘snow-pocalypse’

Yesterday, Washington, DC saw a high of 37 degrees. It’s only early December so I can imagine what the rest of the winter has in store. Today I wore two scarves to work in order to bear the cold weather. Jackie suggested that I buy a parka, or some may call a puffy coat. She suggested I try Macy’s and I found a really cute Nine West jacket that I like (shown below). So, maybe I’ll pick up one before “snow-pocalypse” happens again. If you have a great winter coat, let me know where you bought it. Comments are welcome! Thanks people

Done are the days of tight chignons and french twists. This Fall's runway trends are a soft and romantic take on the grunge trends of the 90's. Next season's styling will be greatly influenced by the designers of Fall Fashion week. Upstyles this fall are undone and slightly messy with a lived in-slept on look. The noncalant effortless styles of this season are always chic and are very hot for your formal events this fall and winter.
