Winter Coats Part I

19 Oct

By Whitney

My dearest friend asked me to do a post on winter coats that are classic but don’t break the bank.  I know my besties’ taste pretty well and I knew she wouldn’t want anything flashy or over the top (I threw in some faux fur but (almost) ALL OF IT IS REMOVABLE).  I started my hunt by a) looking at options under $400 and b) coats that can be worn during the day but also to work to pretty conservative offices.  The below are the options I picked out.  Coats are pretty pricey these days so perhaps there will be a Part II of this post that shows absurdly $$$ coats that really aren’t even reasonable but we still want to dream about…

Winter Coats part I

Top Row:  Soia & Kyo Jana Asymmetrical Coat – $395 // JCrew Wool Melton Peacoat (I like that these lapels are a little bit wider than normal peacoats) – $325 //  DKNY Faux Fur Collar Walker Coat – $215 // Zara Tailored Coat – $189

Bottom Row:  JCrew Melton Military Coat (I tried this on and I’m kind of obsessed with it now) – $378 // Catherine Malindrino faux shearling coat – $155 // Ellen Tracy Kimono Sleeve Coat (I love that it has a hood!) – $270 (was $408) // Lauren Ralph Lauren Belted Stand Up Collar Coat (saving the best one for last bc I think this is my favorite suggestion on here) – $340

Product Spotlight – Resurfacing Mask

13 Oct

By Whitney

Today was supposed to be a Tuesday Lust List post and then I tried a new skin product over the past two weeks and realized, PRIORITIES.  The Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask is a pricey little sucker but it is worth every penny.  The all natural mask acts like a modified peel and left my skin glowing after 15 minutes.  You can leave it on for longer if your skin isn’t as sensitive (I stuck with 10 – 15 minutes) but when you wash it off you seriously notice a difference.  Love this line and love a new addition to my skin care regimen!

Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask – $55

Seven Things

By Whitney

Another exhausting week come and gone and I am ready to turn my computer off for a couple of days.  PP reunion this weekend!!  So excited to see Lauren and drink champs and catch up.  xoxoxo  (photo courtesy of Domino magazine’s instagram – such a good one!).

1.  I’ve been into the helix cuffs lately and this double one is seriously cool.

2.  Pets hating their halloween costumes is making me LAUGH.

3.  This dress is being added to my work wardrobe.  It’s cool and professional, a tough combo to find.

4.  Someone invented a recipe for funfetti twinkies.  That someone is my dream whisperer.

5.  I’m kind of into this navy suede Tory Burch tote.

6.  You guys, I got a fitbit and I’m kind of obsessed with it.  My favorite part is tracking my sleep and seeing that I really do sleep like a person who is unconscious.  Do I need one of these?  HELP.

7.  An assortment of men’s fall shoe options (hello male readers!!!)

Fall Request – Booties

8 Oct

By Whitney

Last week, I had two of my dear friends request my favorite fall booties for this season.  Let me just share my thoughts on booties with y’all.  I wish I was 5’10 with legs for days but while I am relatively tall for a girl, my height is alllll in my torso and my legs are NOT just long and lean.  I love a bootie though.  The trick to flattering booties is to have a cut at the front that goes down at an ankle and doesn’t cut across your calf in a straight line (thank you Rag & Bone for getting me).  If you have the legs to pull it off, go for it because it’s a great look but if you are LEG CHALLENGED like myself (no matter how many miles you run) get yo’self a pair of the below.  Most of these have a chunkier heel which make them do-able for daytime play and also nighttime wear.  If you have the cash, the Isabel Marant dickers are by far the coolest booties I have ever seen and our very own Lauren has these and is obsessed.  I own the Club Monaco pair below and I can wear them all day long and not complain so that’s a plus.  Get involved, people.

Fall Bootie Favorites

Top Row:  Club Monaco Brooklyn -$398  // Joie Ajax (I love the slouch factor on these with leggings / skinnies and they come in great colors) – $295 // Vince Camuto Hillsy (comes in a few colors) – $160 // Rag & Bone Harrow (5 sick colors) – $525

Bottom Row:  Rag & Bone Margot (my personal favorite) – $525 // Paul & Green Delgado – $389 // Splendid Addie – $178 // H  by Hudson Kiver – $198

Hello everyone. I am especially sleepy today and of course work has taken over my morning workout that usually perks me up.  One of those days…So let’s look at some things I am lusting over to perk me up.  Looks like I’m craving some neutral basics in my closet these days.  I consider navy a neutral don’t you?  Because those navy booties are too cute!

Tuesday Lust list Oct 6

By Whitney

It’s a request week here at PP.  First up?  A colleague of mine asked for some suggestions on pretty scarves to dress up her weekend wear.  This blanket wrap scarf trend isn’t going anywhere and I am actually loving the options more this season than last.  Some favorites here below!

Splurge vs. Steal – Navy Floppy Hat

30 Sep

By Whitney

Lauren and I have been discussing my purchase of a floppy hat and I am annoyed at myself for not getting into this sooner.  I was into this Rag and Bone hat that I featured last week but what I wasn’t loving was spending $200 on it.  I really loved the navy and was sad when I decided to be budget conscious on an accessory (WHO HAVE I BECOME????).  While on a trip to Nordstroms taking a break from this absurdly intense project I’m on, I saw this navy floppy hat that I loved instantly.  It was $38!!!  Now I am cool like my chic friends Anne and Lauren.

splurge vs. steal hat

Splurge:  Rag and Bone Wide Brim Fedora – $195

Steal:  Nordstrom Floppy Hat (comes in 5 colors and I don’t know why it won’t screenshot in navy!) – $38
