5 Winter Boots for Men

5 Winter Boots for Men

Like much of the Northeast, DC got hit hard by winter storms yesterday. Bundling up and preparing to go out in the cold is of great importance, especially when it comes to shoes. (Have you slipped on that ice? Ouch! It's brutal!). Here are 5 different winter boot options to get guys through the next part of winter.

1. For the Winter Sports Guy

In what has to be one of the greatest innovations ever for the winter shoe, this Columbia Bugathermo Boot is heated. Yup, it contains a heating system with rechargeable batteries. It's also waterproof and has a temperature display on the exterior of the boot.

2. For the Urban Cowboy

This X-Lace Boot by John Varvatos has a rough and tumble feel. It's currently on sale at Neiman Marcus for $359, down from its original $789 price tag.

3. For the Guy Who Likes to Mix it Up

Your One Fashion Resolution for 2011

Your One Fashion Resolution for 2011

If you only have one fashion resolution for the New Year, let it be this: only buy things that make you feel fantastic. It may sound simplistic, but many times people purchase things that they are just "eh" about. Sometimes those purchases are made for very practical reasons - lack of time / money / energy, or it is just difficult to find clothing that fits correctly. But, one purchase that is just "okay" leads to more purchases that "will do"....and that leads to an entire closet of "meh" clothing. It's one of the reasons people can have an entire closet full of clothes, yet feel like they have nothing to wear.

Awesomely Bad Holiday Sweaters

Awesomely Bad Holiday Sweaters

The golden years of horrible holiday sweaters may be behind us. The 1980's were an excellent decade for tacky Christmas wear. Even in the 90's everyone and their mother (and grandmother) started sporting a holiday sweater the day after Thanksgiving - and it was considered cool. Alas, the holiday sweater has been relegated to hipsters and / or the ironic Holiday Sweater Party. 

As a fashion consultant I'm very thankful that stores are carrying fewer Christmas cardigans each year. But, there is a part of me that is quite nostalgic for the joy a really bad sweater can bring. Thus, I recently searched for an awful sweater contender that is a) currently on the market b) displays the true spirit of the holidays in sweater form.

Oooh, did I hit gold. 

Gearing up for ‘snow-pocalypse’

Gearing up for ‘snow-pocalypse’

Yesterday, Washington, DC saw a high of 37 degrees. It’s only early December so I can imagine what the rest of the winter has in store. Today I wore two scarves to work in order to bear the cold weather. Jackie suggested that I buy a parka, or some may call a puffy coat. She suggested I try Macy’s and I found a really cute Nine West jacket that I like (shown below). So, maybe I’ll pick up one before “snow-pocalypse” happens again. If you have a great winter coat, let me know where you bought it. Comments are welcome! Thanks people
