An Affordable, Lovely Winter Coat By Hayden-Harnett

An Affordable, Lovely Winter Coat By Hayden-Harnett
I’m talking about the “Audrey” ; a twill overcoat with lambskin leather detailing. This coat has a dash of equestrian without being too over the top. To add to its appeal, the Audrey coat is on Hayden-Harnett’s sale docket; priced at $210.40 (from $526).

Hayden-Harnett designs have been featured on shows such as Gossip Girl, and they currently have a special line designed specially for Target on sale now [preview photos of the entire line]; though those pieces are strictly accessory based.

Fashion Crimes: All Over Sheer Dresses

All Over Sheer Dresses“Has nobody heard of a lining?”

Anyone who watched last week’s episode of Gossip Girl will Jenny ridiculing one of her socialite friend’s sheer dress choices for it’s translucency.

Not only do sheer dresses look ridiculous, but they’re a complete waste of money and material.  They look almost comically unflattering on all body types (yeah, even stick thin ones); all you have to do is check out the plastic mannequin wearing the dress to the right.  Even a plastic and perfectly firm human body looks like it has a ponch!

Sure, you could just wear a slip underneath; but you will still end up looking like you’re wearing a glorified piece of lingerie.  Just skip the sheer, you’ll be better off for it.
