Reversible Infinity Scarf

I have to admit between it just being incredibly cold for the last few days in Manhattan and seeing a great post about infinity scarves on Coutorture, I need to have my say on these great winter accessories.

I’ve seen these around. I just love them.  The best real-world wearing of one was when I saw Travis McCoy at a party a few weeks ago.

This season I’m running around with two puffer coats with the best hoods on earth, so I’ve not bought an infinity scarf for myself.  However, I’m getting weak. When I’m weak, that means I start browsing around online to see what’s out there, so let me share my online browsing with you. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s that time of the year.  It’s cold out there, and that means it’s time to bundle up.

Winter is fun because of all the fun cold weather accessories.

Here are a few cute winter hats and headbands to keep you warm and get you compliments this winter.  Most are inexpensive and even cheap.

bargainista on coats

I’m sharing this information because I’m silly. You see, I moved to New York recently, but all of my winter stuff is still in storage in San Francisco. Now, I have a ton of warm stuff because I just moved back from Seoul, South Korea. My plan was to get back home to California before the winter chill hit, but that hasn’t quite worked out.

What that means is I had to find inexpensive but still cute coats and outerwear ASAP.

Good for me I was watching TV this weekend and had a chance to see this on CBS’ The Early Show. They had a segment with “Real Simple” magazine’s Jaimee Zanzinger. The title of the segment is Bargainsta Winter Coats. With all of the stuff I have, I just saw no reason to spend a lot on a new coat when hopefully I’ll go back and fetch all of my stuff in a few weeks. It’s just that the heaviest thing I have is a leather jacket. However, based on this segment, I bought something today from the WalMart website. I’m glad I saw it.

Here is a link to the video segment: Bargainista Winter Coats

(Note: the model wearing the Uniqlo coat comes out third, but the info on the screen says the gray coat she’s wearing is from Old Navy. It’s not. The coat after that one is the Old Navy coat.)

Put something in the comments if you know of any other great places to get inexpensive coats and outerwear. Everyone is watching their bottom line, so let’s help each other out!

Stay solvent AND stay warm!
