The army green parka has made its way back to fashion and it has been seen on some of the most fashionable women around the globe in recent seasons. Utilitarian chic looks extra cool when it is paired with the unexpected - dazzling stilettos and a shaped dress or skirt; or with leggings, high boots and an underlayer dressed with ruffles. And, a lightweight parka is just the right layer for mid-winter temperatures and will get you through spring. Try your own version of this fabulous look.
Browsing for the parka that suits you best, without spending a fortune? Try these:
Gap Military Anorak for $79.
Free People Desert Storm Cargo Jacket for $138.
Rugby Hooded Cargo Cropped Jacket for $178.

I love accessories for the hair and the versatility of a headband is wonderfully exciting to me. A delicate strand of dazzle looks great as a traditional headband, worn angled across the forehead or straight across at the temples, if you dare. Think sophisticated and add a little headband flare to your look.

There is no mistaking that evening shorts are a great look! Here is an adorable fringed pair that might be the best alternative to a little black dress that I've seen in a while. They are a size 6/8 and in excellent condition.
Making it work: Pair these with your trusty black opaque tights (do not steer from black). Take your pick with shoes - an open toe strappy heel, high heeled boots or your favorite booties. Fashion a boyfriend blazer on top (in black) with almost anything underneath. Keep your under layer embellishment free, as any ties or ruffles will interfere the fabulous fringe on your shorts.
Available for $165 at www.marionmercer.com or here.

We are working on a few interior design projects at our house and so I have ceiling fixtures and fabric swatches on my mind. One of my favorite recent finds is this 1960s goldtone Sputnik pendant lamp. It would look fabulous over a round dining room table! I can see the sparkle now.

Since watching The September Issue when it was first released I've been keeping my eye out for a faceted topaz necklace similar to the one frequently worn by Anna Wintour. This might be the best version I've seen. Its three strands of coordinating topaz and amber glass stones are wonderful. The shortest strand measures 17 inches. All the stones are in excellent condition.
