Beanie Weather

baja beanies

If the past few days have been an indication of anything it’s that winter is here to stay. I don’t know about you, but my beanie game is really weak right now and I need to get on it. Stat. These Baja East ones are my favorite out there right now. They’re a fun way to add a little somethin’ somethin’ to your all black, or in my case today grey, outfits. Also, don’t forget about your eyeballs. It may not be that sunny, but those things really suffer when walking through the wind tunnels of New York. These would all also make great stocking stuffers. Just saying. Shop them here.

Holiday Dresses

You’ve got your coat but you just realized Thanksgiving is a mere seven days away and you have no clue what to wear to your dinner party… or that charity event you have this weekend. While we’re at it, you’ll also need something to wear to all your Hannukah, Christmas, and New Years fêtes. If you’re smart you’ve probably already visited us in store, but because you’re too busy killing it out there in the world maybe you haven’t. No worries, though. I’ve gone ahead and selected the best of the best for whatever occasion may arise.

Because you can never go wrong wearing black, above are two of my favorite little black dresses currently in store by – surprise, surprise – two of my favorite designers, Valentino and Stella McCartney. I am absolutely obsessed with Stella McCartney’s fringe shift dress. It’s sophisticated yet fun – just think of all the fun dancing would be in this sweet thang! It also has a great cost per wear ratio going for it. I paired it with Rupert Sanderson’s gold splattered heels, but how cute would it be with a metallic or bright shoe for NYE? I would even wear it during the day with a sweater and some cool sneakers. You could definitely also do this with Valentino’s little baby doll dress. How sick is the red leather collar? It adds the perfect pop of color, but can also be removed — major brownie points. I’m wearing them here with black patent Manolo Blahniks but your options are limitless with this one, especially when you wear it without the collar. Oh! And I forgot to mention both of these dresses have pockets. Double brownie points.

Holiday Outerwear You Need

Besides the fact that it is currently below 30 degrees and beyond freezing outside, holiday season is upon us and you need chic outerwear. I, with help of menswear buyer Rob, have put together everything you’ll need to get you through the wind tunnels and on to all your festivities.

Womens Outerwear

If you’re looking for the perfect top coat, look no further. Brunello Cucinelli and Proenza Schouler (pictured in the first column) have got you covered. Right on trend with longer men’s inspired silhouettes, these two will add a sleek and sophisticated touch to every outfit. I hate to say it, but think Kim K. If she’s good at anything besides exploiting herself, it’s her outerwear game.

For the toggle lover, this grey Balenciaga coat is as chic as it gets.

This Yigal Azrouel jacket is one of the cooler leather and fur combinations I’ve seen. The biker silhouette is always a win in my book, and this jacket also gets bonus points for mixing in some different colored fur

Drop down directly below to Brunello Cucinelli’s mink fur bomber. Need I say more?

Now look to your left and you have the parka of all parkas. I’m obsessed with the pebbled leather and the black on black fur hood. Yigal Azourel nailed the downtown-cool feel with this one.

If your tired of your Moncler but still want the warmth they provide, you can’t go wrong with their new western-inspired silhouette.

Moving clockwise, Hood by Air’s take on a classic down puffer is made that much cooler by their extensive use of zippers. We’re told this is one of Drakes favorites… O to 100.

If you’re trying to be more Top Gun chic rather than my favorite Canadian rapper this holiday season, there’s no better jacket to do it in than this killer from Lanvin. Why not be the maverick of your Christmas parties?

Now onto the second row we have Rick Owens. We treat Rick like our uniform here at Hirshleifers. Ricky O, as we affectionately call him, constantly provides some of the best outerwear in the game. You will not regret adding this piece to your repertoire.

Next is another Moncler down jacket for those of you who are tired of dark outerwear. You definitely won’t be missed in this one.

Last but certainly not least is Balenciaga’s Duffel Coat.  This jacket is epic. You should buy it. No further commentary necessary.

All outerwear is available in store or online through our personal shoppers here.

Patched Up in Libertine

If you follow my personal blog, you know that I’ve been a huge fan of Libertine’s patchwork ever since his FW14 collection hit the runway. A lot of designers have been showcasing boy scout and military inspired patches, but the way Libertine contrasts them atop of plaid blazers is so badass. They remind me of really cool rebellious prep school kids.
