Hot 'n Cold: My Winter Favorites

It's getting cold outside and although I love to hang out under the sun and roast, this is my favorite season in terms of fashion.

These are some of my favorite winter/cold weather accessories...

Colorful tights and leggings

RSAST Shiny Stirrup Tight in Sangria, $14 at American Apparel
BP 'Turn Back' Stretch Cotton Leggings in Adrenaline, $7.90 at Nordstrom

I'd like to make clear the difference between tights and leggings as I have seen way too many privates as a result of getting these two mixed up.

Leggings are opaque and can be worn as pants as these are usually made of thicker more durable materials that do not allow embarrassing see-thru. Tights (even though some are pretty opaque too) become very see thru as they stretch and therefore are not intended to be worn as a pants substitute, but rather to cover your legs from the cold weather.

Funky Coats


Houndstooth Trench Coat, $46.99 at Charlotte Russe
Shield Button Coat in Royal, $39.80 at Forever21

I love color and wearing patterns that pop. Why wear boring coats?


The 3 for $10 Pashmina



Who doesn't own one of these? The best part of acquiring a pashmina in NYC is getting to bargain with the Chinese vendors.

What are your winter favorites?

Happy Shopping :)
