Cold as a Witches What?!

Winter has officially arrived.  Coldest week of the year here in Boston right now.

Seriously, this blogger needs a palm tree.


There is a silver lining to this cold bleak grey week.  I blame German dockhands for my happy warmth.


Wellenstyn jackets were originally made out of sail cloth, a material strong enough to withstand wind, cold and damp.  It’s like the shipyards of Hamburg are sister ports with Boston.  Brrrrrrrrrrr Frauline!

Glencheck, navy blue, camel, black, royal blue, metallic, grey, red, lime green, what’s your pleasure?  Any choice will deliver delirious warmth, perfect for building snow forts or surviving snowball attacks!


Waist length, car coat or bomber?


Down, faux fur, three in one shell with a vest to wear once it all thaws out?


Done, done and done.  There is even room to dabble in the mens section if you want a different cut.  Or surprise your man with a crazy warm winter coat!


There are now four Wellenstyn stores in the US, one in California, one in New York City, and two outlets, one in Chicago and one in Wrentham, MA.  Jackets at the outlet run around $400-600, and worth every single penny when the temperature is zero – not including wind chill.  #hatewindchillmorethanbangs


All Wellenstyn jackets are either waterproof or water resistant – this is very good news for anyone who lives where “Nor’Easter” is part of the forecast!  Plus each jacket style has its own adorable name.  Obviously “darling” called to me.

“Schneeauber” means snow magic in German.  reversecommuter thinks Wellenstyn may be a perfect synonym.

 

 

 

Fashion & Finance Friday!

Seriously, deliriously happy it is Friday!!!!!!

Celine is growing, and I for one am deliriously happy about it! There is an outlet recently opened at the Woodbury Commons just outside of NYC. (Insert extremely high pitched squeal of happiness by reversecommuter here!!!!!). Celine has also just opened the brand spanking new doors of their new flagship store in London on Mount Street (neighbors to Lanvin, Azzaro, Balenciaga and Goyard!).  Phoebe Philo is also going to fill up 15 additional new shops internationally including Tokyo, Soho, and Las Vegas.  Ahem….Boston please?!!!

J Crew might be going public.  Looking for a cash king to come riding into the sunset but not having a happy ending with Japan’s Fast Retailing Co (parent company of J Brand, UNI QLO, Theory and a few others).  Talks ended earlier this week in which J Crew was possibly going to be bought by Fast Retailing for $5 BILLION.  That is a whole heck of a lot of sushi so the Japanese company went Sayonara.  Rumor has it that Mickey is now gearing up for an Initial Public Offering with Goldman Sachs.
