The Edit: 8 Fantastic Faux Fur Jackets

Fur-Jackets

We love real fur as much as the next person, but sometimes you need a cheaper and not to mention, more fun, alternative. Faux fur allows you to try out the quirkiest and loudest fur trends—like stripes, unnatural hues, and interesting cuts—in a more accessible way. So toss one on (or prop one over your shoulders à la blogger chic) with a tee and jeans for a perfectly cozy fall look. Plus, if you opt for the leopard print, you’ve got yourself an Edie Sedgwick get-up for Halloween tomorrow.

6 Best Finds At The (Surprisingly Awesome) New Timberland Store

Timberland

The interior of Timberland on Walnut Street.

When I heard that Timberland was coming to Walnut Street, I was less than excited. I wasn’t even moved when the press reps referred to the store with words like ‘lifestyle,’ ‘concept,’ ‘revamped,’ ‘luxe.’ Luxe, I scoffed. Timberland is the tan work boots that J.Lo wore. Timberland is not luxe.

And then I went to the opening party and ate my words (along with very good hors d’eouvres butlered by handsome woodsy-looking guys).

The rugged, industrial store, sandwiched between Bluemercury and Stuart Weitzman, is packed with shoes (mostly in the back of the store), clothes (men and women, though there are more men’s things here), and accessories. (Who knew Timberland made cute little bags? They do!)

I shopped around, and here’s what I found that you should add to your shopping lists now. (Psst: It includes a $1,000 men’s leather jacket, from their “Premium Collection.” Timberland makes $1,000 leather jackets!)

MR9

  • These pro tips for how to navigate straight-size stores (like Zara) for sizes 14 and up are spot-on: Look for already oversize pieces (like capes and sweaters!), look for stretchy fabric, and consider wearing a straight-size dress as a top. [Refinery29]
  • The Apple watch isn’t even out yet and already people have gone nuts creating accessories for it, based on how they think it’ll actually look and work. Hey, don’t want to be late for the party. [Gizmodo]

Philly, BoConcept Has Created a Couch and Named It After Us

 

Couch

If cities were couches…

I guess we can say that we’ve finally made it as a real world-class city: We have a piece of furniture named after us. And not just any piece of furniture, but a whole couch!

The ‘Philly’ couch is by BoConcept, that modern design haven on Chestnut Street and in KOP that feels like a fancier, grown-up version of IKEA.  The company claims that it’s the first-ever BoConcept sofa named for an American city; I’m not so sure of this. I found a reclining couch called Madison, and even a modular couch called Fargo. FARGO? We came in after FARGO?

It’s no matter, though.
