Winter Style: Equipment Blouse + Krewe Sunglasses

It took the jaws of life, and this sleek, ever-so-slightly sassy and definitely screwy Equipment Blouse to pull me out of my pull-over rut and into something decidedly more polished. Together with my trusty jeans (still can't ditch those!) and my new pair of straight-from-New Orleans Krewe sunglasses in an icy shade of blue, this easy update breathed some new life into my wardrobe rut. There was a quick warm spell on the east coast last week, so a faux fur stole snagged at Forever21 in Georgetown, D.C. this month sufficed for outerwear, and is, hands-down, my favorite accessory ATM.

You May As Well Add Model, Photographer And Stylist To Your Resume.

If fashion and celebrity culture in the early aughts were seen through vaseline-covered lenses and heavily Photoshopped, painstakingly perfect pictures, now, amateur mirror selfies are more likely sources of influence and inspiration.

Reed Krakoff at Kohl's Just Feels...Wrong

Reed Krakoff's collection for Kohl's officially "launched" in late April, just over a year after the designer announced what is slated to be a temporary closing and restructuring of his eponymous line.

The bags don't just reference the designer's highly-coveted pieces, they are exact replicas

Kamali Kulture LBD

It was either my mom or someone from Gossip Girl who said something to the effect of "If you're wearing something low-cut up top, go for a longer hemline on bottom and vice versa." This dress does just that, by teasing glimpses of skin but keeping it classy with a full skirt that falls in the most perfect pleats like only Kamali's signature jersey knits can.

The hottest happenings from the past week? Check my Fashion News column at Bustle.com. Here are the top headlines. Hint: Taking selfies just got easier (and chicer), Givenchy's runway had sky-high highs (winged eyeliner, lilac lace, Kendall, Candice and Naomi) and very low lows (inmate fashion, men in skirts), and Bonobos is running the most apropos fundraiser ever.

Weekend T-Shirt

Lobo Mau and its ferocious mascot are becoming something of a cult symbol in Haddad's native Philadelphia, and with fans as far away as Cali and Brazil, I anticipate that the wolf will reach icon status soon - glad I snapped this tee up while I could!
