I don’t think Uniqlo always nails their collaborations, but they have knocked it out of the park with the one that was just launched with Marimekko, and I’m interrupting my Thanksgiving break to bring it to you now because it is selling out fast. This puffer, for instance, is just insanely cute, and is already gone in many sizes, so hop to it if you’re interested.
OK guys, I’m taking off for the holiday, which I will be enjoying at my brother’s place in Brooklyn. And because it has been proven that the more we focus on gratitude the happier we are, I thought I might—as I always do—ask you to tell me what you’re feeling grateful for (and what you’re doing for the holiday) and share what I am too. This year I’m feeling especially grateful for females who have kicked ass: Greta Thunberg, Fiona Hill, the American women’s soccer team, and the mighty RBG, who just keeps rolling along. And while we’re on the topic of righteous ladies, I’m also feeling grateful for for my mom, who, at 82, gets more done in a day than people half her age, and inspires me constantly. And the boyfriend, Seth, who makes me feel loved and safe and amuses the hell out of me on the regular. And my brothers, who are always there for me, and my friends, who are too, and the dogs, who just never quit. And all of you, of course, and the lively, funny, smart and supportive community you’ve built here. OK, now it’s your turn. See you back here bright and early Monday.
A number of you have been after me to cover this category, sooner than later, so here you go. I often default to black when it comes to choosing a color for my puffer, but I very much like this oversized army green one from Acne Studios. I also like that you have the option to cinch the waist if you so choose.
And this one looks very excellently like ski jackets people wore back in the 70s. I also like the combination of brown and powder blue.
I’m intrigued by Down Official, a brand-new direct-to-consumer outerwear brand, and this is their debut women’s jacket, which is purportedly super, super-warm, and has a removable faux fur hood and shell.
And finally: this Stella McCartney for Adidas puffer is sold out in some sizes, but I had to show it anyway, because I think the little details—like the big pockets and slightly off-to-the-side zipper—are really good.
I was born in Houston, Texas in 1964 and have lived in New York City since 1988. I had a long career in magazines, working at Sassy, Elle, New York, and Spin, and in 2000, I founded Lucky magazine, which I edited for ten years.
