One of the very few reasons I’m even remotely looking forward to the cold weather to come: my nifty new Canada Goose parka, which I like because: 1. It doesn’t look like every other Canada Goose parka. 2. The pockets and the color make it sort of army jacket-ish in a way that appeals. 3. That collar!
The most excellent photographer Michael Waring (he shot some of my favorite features ever at Lucky) snapped this crazy-good faux fur hat on me the other day just moments after I purchased it at No. 6. It was maybe on the pricey side, but I am certain everything is going to work out just fine on the cost-per-wear front.
Gloves and mittens, on the other hand, would never shake out on the cost-per-wear front for me because I spend all winter losing them. (Except the very most seriously cheap street vendor ones, which I am weirdly capable of hanging on to forever.) But if I were to splurge, it would be for this lambswool-lined pair, because it just looks so damn cozy.
Last year, as you may or may not recall, I became fixated on these Penelope Chilvers foul-weather boots. Even though calf-hair is not my thing at all, and in fact kind of ooks me out, I found them completely charming. But I hesitated on making a purchase—they’re not very me, love them though I do—and then they sold out everywhere. At which point I decided I needed them, of course. Right now, a number of places are all stocked up (check here and here for colors other than black) and I know they will all be gone—yet again—before I decide to go for it.
I just think this scarf is the chicest thing ever and want it desperately.
