luxury winter fashion blogger

baby it’s cold outside, but at least we look good doin’ it

Confession of a fashionista, I hate winter. Not dislike, nor do I find it disagreeable. I loath it entirely. The cold, the snow, defrosting my car in the mornings, shoveling the sidewalk, winter fashion, wearing so many layers I feel like an over-stuffed burrito – no thank you. Though I was able to escape the first of the year on a tropical adventure to Bali, I still came home to a fair amount of the season’s harshest. Attempting a mental escape, I decided to have some fun with fashion, regardless of the relentless snow fall. My lifesaving piece, this xllullan winter coat. Think modern art splashed onto your childhood comforter – sewn into a luxury winter coat. It’s perfect. Just what I needed to save me from the worst of the season. The best part, it’s actually so warm, I was able to getaway with some more-than daring trends of the season. photography:KUNDAN KUMAR | camera:CANNON 5D MARK III | winter coat c/o:XLLULLAN | over the knee boots c/o:EGO OFFICIAL | criss cross bralette c/o:ADORE …
