Winter Fashion by Starlet!

Hi everyone!

My name is Starlet; I write for Can You Come Home - a blog about home, garden, fashion, and design.

When Desha announced that she will be hosting the red carpet for a fashion show at Brattleboro, I got all giddy and excited, and I truly wished I could be there witnessing her broadcasting with her bubbly-Desha-style!

But I'm happy to participate in a different way: crafting a fashion focus post for her blog. Desha challenged me to create a stylish winter look and I said bring it on :) So let's bundle up!

I found this image of Rachel Zoe and {back then her assistant} Brad Goresky strolling in the cold weather and I thought I would use them as an inspiration.


Splurge for her at a total of $ 5078
Her Splurge :

  • an uber cool fur colar cardigan from Dolce & Gabana
  • a dash of glam metallic stripe sweater from 3.1 Phillip Lim  
  • cozy wool trouser pants from Hussein Chalayan 
  • lace up booties (no stilettos, but the stacked heels will give you a height boost) from DVF
  • two tone textured leather tote bag from YSL 
  • colorful slouchy beany from Marc by Marc Jacobs to put you on a cheerful mood 
  • oversized sunglasses from Roberto Cavalli to complete the look 

Save for her at a total of $ 525
Her Save:
  • a sweet white coat from Jessica Simpson
  • nights in northbeach stripe sweater from ModCloth
  • cozy wool trouser pants from J.Crew
  • lace up booties (with comfy stacked heels will give you a height boost) from DSW
  • metallic color blocking tote bag from ASOS (I love tote bag, because they're so practical!)
  • tarnish folk knit slouchy cap from Nordstrom to put you on a cheerful mood 
  • oversized sunglasses from ASOS to complete the look 

Splurge for him at a total of $3674
His Splurge:

Save for him at a total of $ 519
His Save:

  • Charcoal wool trench coat from Topman (seriously, can't go wrong with trench coat, guys!)
  • Victorian blue argyle sweater from Old Navy (yes to color!)
  • Tweed dress pants from Old Navy
  • Leather lace up oxford derby from ASOS
  • Safari messenger bag from Calvin Klein
  • Solid fedora from Dillard's
  • Oblong scarf to match with the blue from the sweater from Yoox
Oh, and it doesn't feel right if I didn't have a nature inspired fashion item, right? The texture of the fur reminds me of these beautiful seed heads of the grass. So warm and fuzzy!
Winter Fur

Thanks Desha for letting me blabble on fashion. Creating this post made me wish for a cup of hot cocoa and shop for a furry white coat. Winter is almost here!

What do you think of the looks? What would you add or omit and what is your favorite item?
