cute coats for chilly weather.

November 4, 2009


Can you tell that I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for winter?! I’ve found more fabulous indie-made coats…this time, from De Novo. The designer writes that she started her coat making career making coats for her dog at age 7! How sweet! I LOVE the coat on the bottom right…

You can check out more styles on her website, too!

What kind of cuteness are the tees and plush from Belgium based Plush?!! Their little creatures have such great character. Their sizes run from 3-6 months all the way up to 6 years. So cute!

I love the photos too…aren’t those kids are adorable! Oh how much I’d have to pay to get my dishwater-blond to look that gorgeous…ha ha!

I’m a big dork…I’ve been visiting this tweed wrap coat {above, left} for a week now. Debating. Imagining just how cute it would look with every single one of my outfits. I keep a tab open on my browser so I can take a little visit every now and then…! I’ve been obsessing a little…ok. a lot.

It’s from the Scottish designer, 13 Threads…and I think her pieces are all beautiful. I might not be able to resist the coat…I won’t be quite as cranky this winter with a cozy Scottish coat wrapped around me! That’s a win win!

How cute and sexy is this lingerie and loungewear from Sandmaiden Sleepwear?! {how I dread the spammers that will find my blog with words like “sexy” and “lingere” in this post!} But, everything looks so comfy and cute, I just have to share with everyone…I just wish I remembered what blog I read about this on first…let me know if it was you!

She also has another shop, Sandmaiden custom wool knits and loungewear, with some really nice pieces as well.

I have some talented gals who advertise with me…and I wanted to give a few of them a little extra recognition…And, if anyone out there is interested in taking out an ad, click the little “contact me” button at the top to drop me a line…my rates are super-reasonable!

sherrytruittFirst, is the fabulous map jewelry from Sherry Truitt. I’m in love with the bracelet, and think it would be great to have one custom made with a favorite vacation spot, or hometown! And, Sherry is just as sweet as she can be!

deepbluecNext, is the fabulously talented Rachel Culp and her shop Deep Blue C. Rachel is also a Southern California girl living in the Midwest…and has been sewing her funky clothes for over 20 years. Her list of rock star customers is extensive, too…I just love her jackets for kids…so sweet!!

polarityuncorkedLast, but not least are the shops Uncorked, and Polarity {owned by the same clever and creative momma}. The fantastic necklaces are made with repurposed and sustainably harvested cork as well as recycled steel. The packaging is fantastic too…I love her test-tubes!! She also has a really sweet blog called Olive Bites.
