I want to thank everyone for all the advice and suggestions on my recent ear issues. It helped a ton and it was so sweet of you to take the time out of your day to give me some advice, so thank you!! I think what it came down to was my cold. For the first four days of fashion week, I could barely hear anything (and when I say barely, I mean barely). It all made for some very awkward convos :/ with a lot of obnoxious “whats?” involved. By day five, as my cold symptoms started to subside and so did the pressure in my ear so I was able to hear much better. It’s still not back all the way (I’ve made an apt with my doctor) but it’s SO much better! I have such a great appreciation for full hearing now. Anyways, I’m rambling but again, thanks so much for the thoughtful advice, it really helped and meant a lot.

  1. Sadly, all that’s left is a small. Even more sadly, I am not a size small. Well, I guess there’s always ebay!
    Thanks for sharing. Indeed, the coat is a stunner

  2. Why wear fur when there are so many gorgeous faux alternatives out there? When you wear faux you make sure to state it is, which suggests to realize how terribly cruel the real thing is.

  3. Even as we head into spring, I still have a never ending faux fur obsession & this coat is exquisite! Just have to say that your blog is my FAVORITE & the Pink Peonies title immediately intrigued me as they r my favorite flower. I grew up next door to a man with a very “green thumb” & his house was surrounded by a hedge of pink, white & deep rose red ones. There’s no other scent like it anywhere! I love it when you style those fab pinks!

  4. Wow, Rachel, you look so elegant and classy, like always. I love the coat, so chic! Is it real fur? If so, which kind of fur? It looks so soft. I wish I could have your closet!!!
