Toque Right Off

Really really really seriously cold.  New England is in a big bad freeze.

Time to pull out the toque, this kind of cold doesn’t take pity on underdressed fashion fools!  (the cold weather apparently brings out the Muhammed Ali in me).

reversecommuter toque

True Story – these Miu Miu boots almost got reversecommuter into a little fisticuffs in Milano with a REALLY large Russian woman – thankfully the salesman took pity on me and saved the day (and more importantly the boots!!!).

Calling All Car…Coats!

Never truly appreciated the necessity of a Car Coat until the ‘burbs.

car1

Driving to drop off children, groc shop, the gym, errands, meetings, tennis, yoga, grooming (pets and humans), pick up children, take children to activities, pick up children again, meet with friends, shop a little (or a lot),  drive into city to find zen, etc etc etc.

A full length winter coat is nothing but a hindrance.

carB

The Car Coat length is the perfect length.  Never gets caught in the door, doesn’t get dragged through gray snow banks, puddles or any other ickiness.
