One of my favorite things about my friends is that they’re all wildly different. From career choices to music preferences to personal style, each one of them is wonderfully unique.

Recently, Coach sent over three bags, which, like my friends, couldn’t be more different. An elegant and chic clutch reminds me of my food loving, business-driven friend Erin, who always manages to look polished even in leggings and an oversized sweater. The buttery soft, cherry red purse is as classic and tasteful as my science-loving friend Gillian who doesn’t even realize how fashionable she is. And lastly, the modern, structured black and blue satchel, which is edgy and creative like my hilarious friend Claire, who can’t leave the house without a good pair of sunglasses and something leopard.

I put each bag with an outfit of my own style, but I think I was channeling each of these friends when getting dressed.  And while I wouldn’t mind hanging onto all of these purses, they’d also be the perfect Christmas surprise for my three friends. Santa, please take note.

I’ve been in desperate need of a few days off for awhile now so I’m thrilled to have a short week this week. Aside from dressing up for Thanksgiving, I plan on spending the rest of the week/weekend in comfy clothes while hanging with my family.

This outfit is another oldie but definitely a goodie because it may not look like it but everything I’m wearing is about as comfortable as a pair of soft, stretchy pajamas; which, let’s face it, is probably going to be the only comfortable thing after a giant Thanksgiving meal.

I never used to be much of a clutch person. Aside from my wallet being larger than most clutches, I was always afraid I would lose them, mindlessly leaving one on a table or in a bathroom. The other day however, I picked up this Stella & Dot clutch and now find myself looking for reasons to wear a clutch more often! I love it for it’s simplicity and versatility and of course, the buttery soft leather is perfection. Using a clutch has also made me reevaluate just how much I really need to carry around with me all day (i.e. is it really necessary that I carry FIVE chapsticks at the same time? I think not).

Now, here’s something even more exciting about this clutch - Stella & Dot would like to GIFT one of you darling readers this buttery soft gem that’s changed my handbag life. All you have to do is:

  1. Like Stella & Dot on Facebook
  2. Like Runway Hippie on Facebook
  3. Leave a comment here telling me your favorite Thanksgiving dish

I’ll announce the winner on Black Friday!

I’ve frequently said that music influences the way I dress and this outfit is a case in point. I put this look together the other morning while listening to Nick Cave’s album “Tender Pray,” and I’m pretty sure that the song “Watching Alice” and the fact that I just recently re-watched Lolita greatly influenced the way I got dressed. I admit that this is a bit more “school girl” than I normally like to dress (after all, I lived in a uniform for the greater part of my youth) but something about the polished button down and fairisle sweater made it a bit more…mature.

I can’t tell you how happy I am to be wearing cozy sweaters and tights again. Seriously, is there a better season than fall? I think not. Hooray for layering!

August is a tough month. People are either away, enjoying their last bits of summer or they’re like me, cursing the continuing humidity and anxiously waiting for that first crimson leaf to emerge. Fall will forever be my favorite season mainly because I’m happiest when I can comfortably layer my clothing and can walk around without breaking a sweat.

There are few things more beautiful than autumn in New York; the streets become quieter, the trees transform into rainbows of oranges, reds, and yellows, people are pleasantly wrapped in light jackets or chunky knits, and there’s an unmatchable crispness in the air. I’ve already begun thinking of different outfits to wear once that first fall day really hits, and these are just a few items I wouldn’t mind adding to my roster.

  1. Topshop Silky Stripe Tee - $66
  2. Pamela Love Moon Sterling Silver Ring - $425
  3. Grace Choi Fur Collar - $21
  4. Stella McCartney Burgundy Trousers - $330
  5. Asos Wide Brim Fedora - $43.10
  6. Mother Denim Drama Jean - $148
  7. Victoria Horning ‘The Cluny’ Bag - $895
  8. Marc by Marc Jacobs Michaela Silk Dress - $498
  9. Forever21 Faceted Rhinestone Necklace - $12.80
  10. Rag & Bone Newbury Suede Bootie - $495
  11. Essie Nailpolish in Chinchilly & Wicked - both $8
  12. Style By Marina Shirt Dress - $78
  13. Mali Sabatasso Green Turquoise Ring - $275
  14. Alice by Temperley Fur Gilet - $410
  15. Vanessa Bruno Color Block Jumper - $324
