Chapka Chic

Boston has survived Juno and is now a veritable winter wonderland. IMG_6672 So now the obvious problem is how to look good while keeping the ears warm! (once that is solved the bags under my eyes will be tackled…) IMG_6673 Chapkas, otherwise known as Trapper Hats seem to be all over the place.  Eternally gorgeous Elle Macpherson chose the Chapka in Aspen. article-2526809-1A364C1100000578-811_634x900 The price range is anywhere from under $100 all the way up to north of $1000, depending on what it is made of.

Fashion & Finance Friday!

T.G.I.F!!!!

Go Canada!!!!  Sak’s Inc. has been purchased by Hudson’s Bay Co.  As mentioned on reversecommuter (click here for the original post), Hudson’s Bay Co. went public in October 2012, and I really thought it was a good purchase – now that little Canadian stock will have both Lord & Taylor and Sak’s within it’s bundle!

Sak’s Inc. was purchased for a modest (!!) 2.4 BILLION, and according to my husband we definitely contributed to that price tag – funny, isn’t he?  🙂
