Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I took these photos 2 weeks ago when I was visiting my hometown for our annual family reunion. My Mother has a very large extended family, and each year, over 60 of us gather together for a delicious Christmas lunch. I usually dress a little more festively, but I was antsy to wear this fabulous faux leather skirt, so classic black and white it was.

TGIF! I am particularly excited to share today’s post with all of you. Living in the Beautiful North, you would think that I would have a huge wardrobe full of cold weather pieces to keep me nice and toasty this time of year, however, I’ve always struggled to find the perfect winter coat that keeps me super warm but doesn’t make me look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man . . . until now.


Meet Eleven Elfs, my newest obsession, and the absolute most perfect winter coat I’ve ever worn. When Eleven Elfs approached me a couple of months ago to try one of their coats, I was a little hesitant because I’ve had bad luck with puffy coats in the past, where they usually overwhelm my frame and make me look huge. I visited their showroom to check out their full collection, and as soon as I tried on one of their beautiful coats, I was in L-O-V-E.


I was blown away by how soft and lightweight all of the Eleven Elfs coats are. Filled with 90% premium down and 10% feather, this coat keeps me oh-so-cozy and warm while outside in the elements, but it’s so lightweight that it somehow magically keeps me comfortable (and not overly heated) when inside a building or shopping in the mall. It’s washable so I don’t have to worry about dry cleaning, and it’s water repellant, which means water and snow just slide right off of it without making it damp. The coat is really flexible too, so my movements don’t feel restricted.


I can honestly say that this is my ideal winter coat. I’ve been telling all of my friends about it for weeks, and I’m thrilled to finally share it with you all. This is an investment piece but absolutely worth every penny. Now that the weather here is colder, I’ve been wearing it non-stop for the last two weeks, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve received. I will most definitely be picking this coat up in another color. Now, the difficulty is just choosing which one! If you’re in the market for a new warm winter coat, I highly recommend this awesome Eleven Elfs coat.

Let’s talk about handbags today, shall we? I am definitely a ‘purse girl’. A great handbag can make or break an outfit. I can be wearing old sweatpants and runners, but as long as I’m carrying a fabulous handbag, I still feel pulled together. (Okay, we know that’s an exaggeration because I never wear sweats outside of the house, but you get the picture). I believe that handbags are investment pieces that I’ll have for many years, so I certainly splurge more on my handbags than I do the rest of the items in my wardrobe.


The gorgeous tote I’m wearing here is from MEZZI, a luxurious new collection of handbags made in the USA. The first things I noticed about this bag are the incredible quality of the Italian leather and its superior craftsmanship. I was a little hesitant to choose this off-white leather for fear of getting it dirty, however, I’m so happy that I ended up going with this color. It really is a stand-out piece, and the textured leather is easily cleaned with a soft cloth. All MEZZI bags feature Smart Luxury, meaning that each bag is outfitted with a proximity sensor TrackR that allows for wireless connectivity between your bag and smartphone, and ensures that no matter where your bag may walk off to, you’ll always be able to track it down. How cool is that?!


I’ve partnered with MEZZI to offer 35% off their entire collection for the next two weeks, with the promo code ‘CRAZYSTYLELOVE‘. I already have my eye on their fabulous Vedova Nera Bucket Bag. Now, I just have to decide on the color, classic black or stunning scarlet. I don’t think I can go wrong with either.
