March Comes In Like A Lion and Out Like A Lion

March Comes In Like A Lion and Out Like A Lion

March 26, 2014


I thought the saying went “March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb,” but as my friend Jess wrote this week on Facebook, it’s totally going out like a lion too here in NYC.

Fortunately, my photo shoots this week are indoors, but this cold is taking a toll on not just me, but everyone around me. I may have caught yet another flu and it hurts even more to spend my days looking at and styling summery clothing that I can only dream about wearing soon.

No fair mother nature!

Well, the one good thing about the extended winter is trying out the looks for next fall that you saw on the runways. Camel coats were everywhere—including on me—and I predict they will be this fall. Time to stock up now while the season’s at the tail end (hopefully).

STYLIST TIP: The best time of year to purchase a coat is January through March, when they tend to go on sale. The longer you wait, the lower the price…and the less selection as merchandisers are moving in spring merchandise.

    Aw, I hope you feel better! Isla and I are so over this weather. We went out for coffee this morning in the 30 mph winds, which was a horrible idea! Just one block of walking and little miss could barely breathe. And speaking of wool coats, I am horrible at shopping for these and need a good staple in camel or black or something neutral that is not a pea or duffle coat. Any stylist tips for my short frame?

    Aw poor little Isla! I will definitely have to do a post on this Miss Risa, but the best coats for petite ladies like you are the ones that hit right above the knee. If you do want to try the floor length coat, try keeping your shoes/pants in the same tones as the coat to elongate. A belted coat will also give you definition and won’t let your petite frame get swallowed up by your outerwear!

    […] A couple of months and a sample sale later, I came away with sophisticated tailored pants, a few well-made dresses and even a gorgeous Italian wool coat, most of which I still keep in my wardrobe rotation today, as you’ve seen recently here. […]
