Grey Faux Fur coats and things

Grey-teddy-bear-coatGrey Faux Fur is so pretty. It is not white and it is not black so it is not so extreme. The faux fur grey coats are perfect to wear casually in the day with jeans and beautiful if you wore it at night with a dress. There are so many faux fur coats to choose from this season, but the grey faux fur coats are hard to find. The one coveted by many is the sold out Tibi Toscana fur coat. Alternatives include ones by Kensie, Cheap Monday, Asos,  and Dylan. Pair your grey faux fur coat with grey platform sneakers with grey faux fur pom poms by Sam Edelman.

Winter Work Travel Attire

Travel-attire-winterWhen traveling for work do you ever wonder what is the right attire to wear? Oftentimes we think being comfy in sweats is the way to go. However, if you are traveling for work with other colleagues and you work in fashion or in finance, the rules may not be so relaxed since how you dress is also part of your job. If you have been traveling with the same college suitcase you have been using since college, now is the time to invest in carry on luggage. Carry on luggage like your handbag is something that is essential in a travel work wardrobe. A good pair of black ankle boots, a black blazer,  a day handbag, and a night shoulder bag are all essentials. Oh and don’t forget a great iPhone case. Something fun is ok for your phone case.

In the collage:

Louis Vuitton black Pouchette for $2,880 or the very similar Saint Laurent Monogram shoulder bag with chain are great investment bags to own. Alternatives that look similar for less are by Tory Burch, $595 and Rebecca Minkoff, $275.

Givenchy satchel bag with in its hard grained leather with shoulder straps is the perfect bag for $2,280 to carry all your office essentials from plane to hotel to office. An alternative for less is the Kate Spade‘s satchel bag with shoulder strap for $378.

Prada silver carry on suitcase made of their durable grained leather is on sale for $999 and is regulation airplane size to carry on your flights. An alternatives for less is the 3 piece metallic silver suitcases by Kensie on sale from $625 for $169.99.

Ellery wide leg ankle dressy jeans are very fashion forward for $790. A less dramatic alternative would be the DL Premium Denim flared jeans for $178.

Nicholas velvet blazer is perfect to double as your night time dinner jacket once you get off the plane on sale for $417 from $595. River Island makes a blazer that is very modern and chic for $120.

Ugg Pom Pom beanie hat is essential when traveling this time of year. It is either raining or snowing everywhere you go. Bring it along with you to stay cozy on the plane and off the plane. You can always get one for half the price at Topshop for $26.

Casetify has the More Issues Than Vogue iphone case and many others for $40. You need an iPhone case when traveling in case you drop your phone.

Stuart Weitzman black ankle boots for $525. An alternative would be Steve Madden suede ankle boots for $78.

Metallic Bomber Jackets that are Gucci like

Gucci-Bomber-jacketSince the British Vogue article came out about the must have silver Gucci metallic bomber jacket for Fall, everyone has been looking for the perfect version of the Gucci metallic bomber jacket. Like many, the Gucci metallic jacket at $3,600 is a little bit out of the budget. I did find some great looking alternatives that I thought I must share with you. One of my favorites come from the controversial Nasty Gal. This version has the same signature cuff colors of the original Gucci bomber jacket, but it is in a gold metallic version instead of silver. For $78, the Nasty Gal version is pretty darn good if you want a gold bomber jacket. One that looks very close to the Gucci metallic bomber jacket is actually sold at Forever 21 for $34.90. I bought this version and I love wearing it with dresses or pants. Other versions in all gold without the signature cuffs can be found at Asos and Neiman Marcus. Since this metallic trend may be fleeting, spending under $100 may be the way to go. metallic bomber jacket

Feather Trend Everything

Miu-Miu-feather-pumpsEverything has feathers this season in a good way. Think about adding some soft feathers to your spring wardrobe to welcome spring with whimsy. Loving these sparkly feather pumps available at Bergdorf Goodman, this feather grey bag from Nordstrom, and these skate sparkly feather sneakers from Miu Miu. If you are going to a gala this season at the Met or an awards party, this Marchesa feather dress is a must that you can wear with the Jocelyn feather jacket.  If you want a more casual dress, get the Saylor shoulder straps nude colored dress with feathers trimming the bottom of the dress. Last but not least, is an elegant black camisole top with feather trim on the bottom from Line & Dot for $77 which can be worn with a skinny pencil skirt or a pair of jeans.

Nong La Vietnamese Noodles for the Gluten Free Eater

img_9527Ever wonder how people who eat gluten free can enjoy noodles? If you love Vietnamese noodles you can pretty much go gluten free. One of my favorite places to go in Los Angeles is Nong LA on Sawtelle and they now have one on La Brea near The Grove. They serve everything with their rice noodles which are gluten free. The menu is simple and everything is delicious. If you like soup noodles order the beef Pho Tai, or chicken versions with their beef or chicken broth and their rice noodles. If you want a salad version order vegetarian or meat with their vermicelli rice noodles with salad. So many choices you can eat here healthily 5 days a week!

If you want to try this at home – try making these noodles with miracle noodles which are gluten free and high fiber.

Tweed Dress and Jacket

chanel-tweed-dressI never get tired of the Chanel tweed jacket and dress combo. And now contemporary brands as well as Chanel are doing the tweed jacket and dress combo in such a way that you don’t have to wear these dresses or jackets only to lunch. You can wear these great looking ensembles to parties at night too and not look too dainty.

Chanel, Pierre Balmain, Lanvin, Storets, and M Missoni all have their own versions and I love them all.
