To celebrate my mother's birthday (it's a milestone number, which, of course, she would not want me to disclose), we are heading (home) to New York next week to do some Christmas shopping and dining out at new "it" spots (Omar's) and tried-and-true ones (The Waverly). I'm excited for the trip but also fretting about the frigid cold. When I look at the extended weather report (30 to 40-degree weather), I feel something inside my body curling into fetal position, fearing the arctic air. Yes, LA has thinned my blood! This anxiety is prompting me to shop for my shopping birthday trip, as true winter-proof pieces, like this big, chic plaid J.Crew scarf (30% off this and everything else), are in need! Fortunately, Shopbop appears to have anticipated my desperation and today launched a mega sale*, chock full of cold weather staples. Here's what I am eyeing: this made-for-layering, transcontinental flight-ready Three Dots cardigan (which is totally LA winter-friendly, too!), this seriously perfect (and sold out everywhere else) Ami Dans La Rue fisherman sweater, this forever-chic, zipper-trimmed Theory turtleneck, this extra warm Veronica Beard blazer, and this heat-trapping wool beanie. P.S. I'm thinking this sale might also help to put a dent in the holiday shopping I have planned for NYC--i.e., less time running around outside from store to store!
