Puffy jackets for fall and winter

By Andrea Thatcher on October 5th, 2007

The term “puffy” might send you reeling for your covers, filling you with a desire to hide for the day. Puffy under eyes, puffy hair, well, most anything puffy is bad. Except for this season’s puffy coats. Say goodbye to the floor-length marshmallow coats you’d only find at sporting goods stores. This season, designers are showing how being warm doesn’t mean being dowdy. This Add Down puffer wrap jacket (left) is chic in this season’s in-color gray and sleek paired with its leather belt, available at for $361.

Puffy handbags are in

By Elaine LaPersonerie on September 7th, 2007

Texture is in this fall and, if you’ve noticed, there seems to be a lot of puff. From Chanel to Miu Miu to Louis Vitton to Cynthia Rowley, everyone seems to be into this quilted look. Net-A-Porter is showing this black leather Marc Jacobs Mayfair shoulder bag with gold hardware and a chunky chain link strap. I think it’s really classy, but for $895 I’m not sure it’s worth it. But with some quick internet surfing I found a similar bag at Fashion Flaire for $49.99. It’s not leather, but so what–it’s so hard to notice the faux half the time, anyway! Plus with the number of bag peddlers on NYC streets, everyone in the world is carrying a faux something! So, if you can’t swing for the pricier styles–look for something similar before you break the bank.
