Winter's Little Black Dress

 

Untitled #66

Inspired by this recent post on the blog, I thought I'd find a way to wear the little black dress come winter time. You still might want to keep your hems short, but at the same time stay warm. Above is the perfect way to do so. Pair this structured, comfy LBD from Modcloth with a cozy red jacket (buttoned or unbuttoned), color blocked leather boots, a sweet hat, a simple bag, and gold earrings, and you have a look that can transition from work to play, all in one day, and at very affordable prices.

 

Tulle Coats

I first discovered Tulle coats last year when visiting a friend in Brooklyn. We popped into a small boutique and I exited with a rust-colored, vintage-inspired Tulle coat for well under $100. And that's the price of most of their outerwear. The line, sold at places like Modcloth.com as well as at Pacific Trading Company in Santa Cruz, Calif., boasts a wealth of designs that are flattering to all shapes, as well as come in myriad colors and an impressive pricetag for what you get—style, a classy/retro look, and an impeccable fit. With the temperature starting to dip, now's the time to choose your favorite winter coat. My suggestion? A long-lasting gem—a Tulle coat.

 

Calivintage

I don’t follow many blogs consistently, but one I’ve kept up with over the past couple years is Calivintage, a charming style blog created by San Francisco resident Erin Perez Hagstrom. Hagstrom's personal style is a mix of high and low, vintage and new, and her outfits are always complemented by a pretty detail such as a cute pin, a bow shoe, or a vintage handbag. Her lifestyle is to be admired as well: She is an avid bike rider and nature lover, and is currently the editorial specialist for the fantastic online clothing store, Modcloth. It’s no wonder Calivintage has been featured in several publications, such as the San Francisco-based magazine 7x7 and in Vogue Italia online. Treat yourself to Hagstrom's blog here
