I admit I wasn’t a fan of the puffer coat and always thought of them as the bane of winter fashion. It wasn’t until Raf Simons started making them oversized and in red that made me consider the highly practical item a stylish one too. Since then numerous brands have hopped onto the trend and produced the puffer in various saturated tones and “avant-garde” cuts. But of course, the styling remains pivotal to making the look work, since they easily look like any average *cold* person’s coat. So here’s a quick styling guide on how to make the puffer coat a fashion statement: View Post

It’s easy to become increasingly immune to hatred with every new act of terrorism (we were reminded of it again this Halloween). And while it is important to be careful and stay safe, it is also worthy to remind ourselves to embrace and love one another just a little more. Hate doesn’t usually come out of nowhere and many times it manifests too violently when people are repetitively faced with emotional estrangement- whether that be personal, political or economical (the list is inexhaustible). Rather than pointing fingers and excluding others, practicing inclusion on a daily basis can slowly mold our environments to be safer. Of course, this is easier said than done, but even small signs of gratitude, like saying “thank you” to the cleaning lady, can perpetuate this. So here’s a little rainbow for everyone reading this and may your day be just that much more colorful.
