Adrien: I'm Freezing.

I have to tell you guys, when the weather gets really cold it gets much harder to wear anything cute. Mostly I just want to wrap myself up in a blanket and whimper, but they frown on that at work, so I put on clothes:

Please just use your imagination that I'm wearing chocolate brown Spanx reversible tights and my Lotta t-straps in aubergine. I'm also wearing a very lovely DVF wrap dress that has the best reptile print. I do love a silk jersey wrap dress in a fun print. DVF is of course the best for such things but BCBG also has pretty options.

Sorry about the creepy hand close-up but I wanted to show you my new rings! 

The big honker is Alexis Bittar and came in my most recent Box of Style. It wasn't sure I'd wear something so big but it's so much fun. I think it was exclusive to the box (hint: check eBay) but this one is a reasonable dupe and this one is my everything. And the Stella Valle line at Target has a bunch of cute cocktail rings. The sweet garnet ring is an early birthday gift from Marianne! I love it so much and wear it every day. Awww. 

Here's my bag. Whee. It's my MBMJ Mag Bag and I solemnly swear that you need a good neutral metallic bag. It will change your life a tiny bit. I suggest this Lauren Ralph Lauren satchel because the color is perfect and the shape is classic. If classic is not your bag (haha I kill) perhaps this cuteness from Vince Camuto?

So I don't freeze to death at my desk and because I like to ruin a good thing,  I threw on my favorite wine cardigan:

Mine is Eileen Fisher (reviewed here) and even though it's not the most flattering layer, this cardigan is warm and light and the dark purple-blue looked pretty good with the dress. I can't find my exact cardigan but this one is the same color and on sale! It's pretty cute, actually. Hmm. This one also comes in midnight and is a bit longer and is even more on sale. Get a wine cardigan! Don't freeze! 

I'm freezing.


  1. Same here .. cold. I'm thinking that staying in my sweat pants is not a bad idea at all.


  2. I got the winter box of style too and love the ring. It looks great. Did you see the hero item for the next one? Not loving the bucket bag and thinking of cancelling my order for spring.

    1. I am too! That little bag is cute but not my style at all.

    2. Send an email soon - they're customer service is slow. There is no obvious way to suspend your account. I think you have to email them directly.
