About the only thing about bitter winter weather that I like is that I get to wear lots of cute layers! It's the perfect time to pile on your comfy sweaters, thick scarves, and tall boots. You know you're going to be miserable once you step outside anyway, (especially if you're from DE like me!), so you might as well look stylish. Above are my absolute favorite cold weather items- things that I look forward to taking out of the back of my closet every fall. I also threw in a few other items as well :)
Dark Printed Skirt: Take spring florals down a notch with moodier hues
Knit Headband: Cover your ears with a standout topper
Tweed Chain Bag: So regal and dainty, it will perfectly off set your winter look
Long Coat: Chic and trendy, a below the knee coat keeps your dress/skirt at bay in the wind
Leopard Booties: Boots, check. Lace-up, check. Snow proof, check. Sexy print, super check
Mixed Material Vest: Fur for warmth and leather for flare = a great 2 in 1 deal
Glitter Loafers: Shine like snow in made-for-girls loafers. You'll wear them again and again, I promise
Navajo Top: Be down to earth in a fun and surprisingly neutral print
Brown Leather Pants: You can still rock out in these pants without looking like a poser
Infinity Scarf: Easy to wear (no instructions needed!), and provides optimal warmth. Winning
Suede Gloves: Keep your digits toasty in trendy suede- others will be jealous, guaranteed
Cozy Knit Cardigan: Wrap yourself up in this classic winter staple. LOVE
Teal Earrings: The perfect color that goes with literally everything your wear. So pretty!

Claire gets extra points for choosing an unexpected gown for this red carpet. In a night of many shimmering sequin dresses, this shiny one stands out for its unique patchwork pattern and mix of different blue hues. Simple hair and accessories complete a wonderful look. What else can we expect from Claire but perfection?
Nina Dobrev in Donna Karan: 20/10
Nina is by far my favorite at the Emmys! Normally I tend to dislike red on the red carpet, but Nina brings star power to an overdone color. The dress is perfectly fitted, the train is stunning and that luxurious necklace tops it off wonderfully. She blew everyone out of the water.
Sarah Hyland in Christian Siriano: 8/10
Sarah is almost perfection in this pink confection. I do love the rich pink color and the waist clinching belt, but I'm not a fan off matchy matchy shoes. Also her hair seem more prom than Emmys. But overall she looks adorably cute.
Elisabeth Moss in Marchesa: 12/10
Now here is Marchesa done right. That cream color on Elisabeth's pale skin in wonderful. I also adore the branching effect of sequins up and down the bodice and acting as faux sleeves.
And don't even get me started on the weird holey details on the bodice. I just don't get it.

Everything But the Kitchen Sink
Nicki Minaj looks a hot mess in this weird contraption. I really don't get it at all. What's with the stuffed cat toys, ballet tights, and face mask? Nicki tends to adorn outfits that I find neither fun nor fashionable, and this look really tops it off for me. Gimmicks need to stop, ahh.
Britney is Back in Black
I absolutely loved that Britney won for her video and received the lifetime achievement award (presented by a cross-dressing Lady GaGa), but her look was boring as usual. What happened to the days of denim dresses, pink pleather pants and midriff tops? Not that her past looks were very flattering or fashion forward, but at least they had the wow factor. This simple Missoni mini and calf cutting bootie look just falls flat. A much better effort on the hair though.
Really Miley? She looks like a woodland monster from the murky abyss in this dull and drab long sleeve gown. It's neither young, fun, or trendy and makes her appear twice her age. I would have shorten the hem, chopped off the sleeves, changed the color and print, taken down her hair, lighten up her makeup....basically change the entire look head to toe. Really Miley?
Ok first off, why is Katie Holmes at the VMAs? And why did she get to present the biggest award of the night? And slighty off topic, why did she guest judge on So You Think You Can Dance? a few weeks back? The answer we can all guess at (cough cough Tom Cruise), but my largest concern was her hideous clown shoes. They do not go with her dress, nor with anything for that matter (maybe a yodeling outfit?). Just plain wrong all around.
Katy Perry looked surprisingly tame (in her terms) tonight on the red (well black), carpet. Of course that being said....it is WAY too costume-like, and the parcel? Unnecessary and gimmicky. But can we expect anything less from Mrs. Russel Brand? I do love her pink strappy Jimmy Choo sandals though.
