Coffee Break: Wool Blend Asymmetrical Skirted Coat

ted baker skirted coatIf you’re looking for a gorgeous, statement-worthy coat for this winter, may I present this gorgeous Ted Baker asymmetrical skirted coat. Love the open wrap (it also buttons up for, you know, warmth), the light gray color, and the pleated skirt effect of the coat. Stunning. It’s $575 at Nordstrom (and Amazon may have a similar Ted Baker one in navy, on sale). Wool Blend Asymmetrical Skirted Coat

For more affordable alternatives, try ASOS (a fun pale pink) and Macy’s; two plus-size options are at Macy’s and Amazon.

Coffee Break: Carrie High Heel Pumps

These gorgeous heels from Boden come in a number of different colors and textures — plush burgunday as pictured, solid suede options in black, navy, and rose, and two really fun animal print options on “animal print hair on cowhide.” I love the vintage feel to that super high heel cup, as well as the Art Deco-y scalloped edge. Love. They were $150-$170, but are on sale right now — prices start at $112. Nice. Carrie High Heel Pumps

Coffee Break: HeatTech Shorts with Waist Warmer

I noticed these HeatTech shorts at Uniqlo recently, and they look like they could be an interesting addition to your wardrobe. Note that there’s no Spanx-like effect — they’re not going to suck you in and are apparently kind of loose — but if you’re freezing under your dresses, skirts, etc., they seem like a good option. They’re machine washable and available in gray, black, and navy in sizes XXS–XXL for $14.90. (There’s also a leggings version.) HeatTech Shorts with Waist Warmer

Coffee Break: Medium Club Convertible Crossbody Bag

all saints convertible crossbody bagI recently got an AllSaints bag and was really impressed with the quality of the leather and the softness and general functionality of it. This one has a really nice interior pocket and an outside pocket, and it just looks like a great little bag. It’s getting very positive reviews too, like, “My usual bag is a Céline Nano and honestly this one is so much more functional and logical,” and others generally noting how great it is. If you’re not a fan of this ash gray, do note that it comes in black as well. In general I’ve been really happy with my AllSaints bag, and if I were looking for a slim crossbody this would be high on my list. It’s $248 at Nordstrom. Medium Club Convertible Crossbody Bag

Two more affordable options are from Michael Michael Kors and Fossil.

Coffee Break: Dorothy Flex Pump

This pump from Michael Michael Kors is getting awesome reviews. It comes in the pictured olive suede as well as taupe suede, black leather, and black with a gold star pattern. I always like olive with navy and/or cobalt, but that’s me. It’s $98.95 at Nordstrom, available in sizes 5–11. (Oooh, note that Amazon has lucky sizes available in other colors, including — be still my heart — a purple suede.) Dorothy Flex Pump

Coffee Break: Hosiery Mate

Did you know you can use Hosiery Mate on your pantyhose and your bras? I was updating an old post on how to wear stockings to work (fun story: we occasionally get flagged by Google as a NSFW site because of posts like that, in part because posts like that attract some… interesting… commenters, and in part, as best I can guess, because we’re featuring images of pantyhose packages.) ANYHOO: I was intrigued to note that a number of readers had recommended this particular brand of soap for washing your pantyhose and, lo and behold, it was still available and well-reviewed almost ten years later. Awesome. The brand promises to be a “rinse-free wash with no soapy residue,” strengthens fibers to extend the wear life of pantyhose, and to soften and eliminate static cling. Oh, and you can use it in your machine or if you do your wash by hand. From the Q&A section on Amazon, one answerer notes that she uses it regularly on vintage stockings “over 50 years old,” and another notes that Hosiery Mate is great for bras as well because you don’t need to rinse. A 16-oz bottle is $14.99 at Amazon. Hosiery Mate
