Fashionable Raincoats That Actually Keep You Dry

Fashionable Rain Coats.

Last week it was raining in Cleveland, and I got caught in it. (Btw, this is Elana writing.) Let me rephrase. It was pouring buckets and I left the house and didn’t wear a rain coat because I don’t really like the one I have. It’s functional,  just not that fashionable. It’s more for walking the dog (which we don’t have) or hiking (which I don’t do). Ha!  I was talking to Hallie about it afterwards and it made us think.  There must be functional rain coats out there that are still fashionable at the same time. The kind of rain coats that you aren’t embarrassed to leave your neighborhood in.

Why Black Pumps Are the Shoe Every Woman Needs in Her Closet

Black Pumps, Boring But Necessary.

Black  pumps. Are they boring? Kind of. But, are they necessary? Yes! This is one of those needs vs. wants things.  In the food pyramid of clothing,  a plain black pump falls into the veggie category, not the sweets category. Nobody really wants to eat them, but they need them to sustain a healthy body. Eating sweets would be way more fun. And the same goes for the black pump.

Most people don’t really want spend a chunk of their clothing budget on a “boring” shoe like the black pump, but it’s a building block in your wardrobe. In fact, if you invest in a plain black pump now it’ll save you money in the future. With the black pumps we’re talking about, you probably won’t need a different black pump for every occasion. When you have a classic pump in your closet that goes with just about everything,  just like your veggies, it will take you further than a piece of cake.

Black pumps are versatile.

Time and again we meet with clients that are missing this key element in their wardrobe.  We’ve realized maybe it’s time to give the classic black pump a little PSA. It’s one of those pieces it pays to invest in.  It will end up being one of, IF NOT the most versatile shoe in your wardrobe. It goes with just about everything from jeans, to dresses. It’s that versatile, and a classic if chosen correctly.
