Real Style: Winter Wonderland

"Well it's the M - I - crooked letter, ain't no one better/And when I'm on the microphone you best to wear your sweater/Cause I'm cooler than a polar bear's toenails/Oh hell, there he go again talkin that shit again." Outkast, Atliens.

The other day it was soooo cold in NYC. The forecast was for 19 degrees, but it felt like 5 degrees with the wind chill (cooler than a polar bear's toenails). Always on the lookout for fashionable people, I spotted this chick on the way to the train. She was nice enough to stop, in the cold, to take this pic:

She looks cold, yet cool. The belt on her coat, paired with her funky boots and equally funky hairstyle screamed style. I also liked how her Puma Bag was really cute, yet unpretentious. I guess you don't need a big label bag to look fabulous:)

*Don't forget about the Diane von Furstenberg, Tory Burch, and TSE sales this week (Scroll down for deets)!
Update: Diane Von Furstenberg was *amazing*. Tons of wrap dresses for $150, shirts for $80, and jackets for $175. Tip: Go straight to the back for the sample sale boxes...everything is $50. I got a dress and a shirt for $50 a pop!

*Goldenbleu handbags are having an incredible sample sale Tuesday and Wednesday. Tibi clothing and Leigh Bantivoglio are also on sale, and everything is up to 75% off!
Time: 10am – 7pm both days
Where: Loft 11. 338 W. 37th St b/w 8th & 9th Ave. 212.420.9894

Do you just stop ppl and say "excuse me, do you mind ig i take a pic of you and put it on my blog?" natural hairstyles are the business. i love her coat and sweater :)
