By now I think I’ve established (at least to myself) that I’m a coat freak, but when winter comes after you in New York City, it’s a serious matter. Going out without the right parka, you can literally freeze and feel like your nose is gonna fall, which it might, actually.
I’ve worn my Mr and Mrs Fur for a while now, but recently I also added a classic Canada Goose one (love it) and I’ve been thinking about a Moncler for a while… I like a big one that I can disappear into. I can dress however I want under them (I even wear my purse under the parka, which makes me look like I’m pregnant, but who cares? It’s f#@$%g COLD!!!), they’re like a survivor blanket. It’s the only way I’ve found to stay chic and warm when the winter comes.
I mean, until you get to the bottom of the winter, the part when it’s just too cold, icy and windy and we’re all just layering stuff on ourselves and Duck Booting wherever we go and it’s total style game over. I refuse to even talk about these days.
