Go Green
By Jenny Bahn
And the award goes to… emerald! Pantone, the global authority on color, just awarded this rich gemstone shade the honor of 2013’s Color of the Year, following last year’s deliciously bright choice, Tangerine Tango. Luxe and luscious, emerald is a color that can be easily incorporated into any wardrobe or home décor.  It’s notoriously flattering, complementary to most skin tones, a fact that has not slipped past the design house, Alexander McQueen, who is using emerald quite liberally as of late. In the home, emerald imbues spaces with the academic intelligence of a well-stocked library or the rich comfort of a smoking room. Wear it on your fingernails, dangle it from your ears, hang it from the dining room ceiling — whatever you decide to do with emerald this coming year, you won’t go wrong. And the next time you’re scouring eBay for some fashion finds, don’t forget to add the word “emerald” to your search query to go green in 2013.

Into the Wild
By Jenny Bahn
Animal print coats — cheetah, in particular — have always been a little too, well, feral for my tastes. For whatever reason, it’s never been something I could pull off. That doesn’t stop me from appaulding the girls who do and can (Kate Moss for Supreme, anyone?). When considering a fur coat, I like to stay as animal friendly as I can, and I’m a big advocate of vintage for the sole reason that you’re not putting new demand for a product that sometimes utilizes inhumane practices. If you’re going to stay warm this winter, try to be as animal friendly as possible and, if you must go for fur, buy a gently used one. Here are some cheetah-print coats I found on eBay, as well as some pretty swank vintage furs.

6 Things Every Girl Should Have in Her Closet: Kate Schelter
By Jauretsi
Kate Schelter is a curious lady with her hands in many pots. In her younger years, Kate studied graphic art and adored fashion, so she decided to open her own firm, Kate Schelter LLC, specializing in both passions — creative direction and fashion styling. She’s styled campaigns for Lulu Frost, Hollywould, and Wren and styled for names ranging from the Olsen twins to Margherita Missoni. We asked the image consultant to share her top six essentials for any woman’s wardrobe.  
(1) Underpinnings: Hanky Panky, Woldford stockings, Ten Undies. Once you know your size, you can’t mess it up on eBay
(2) Heels: Gianvitto Rossi Black 4” stilleto. Cheap shoes scream “I ruined your look”, great ones complete it
[MORE]
(3) Coats: Comme des Garcons camel trench, Yves Saint Laurent faux leopard print coat
(4) Fabulous Dress: Something wonderful, colorful, memorable. For example, Vintage YSL, Ungaro, Oscar de la Renta
(5) Accessories: Beaver felt trilby (Lock and Co), antique jewelry (gifted by someone very special)
(6) Red Lipstick (Chanel): eBay is a dream for finding your favorite discontinued colors and products
