Just one look at Elle Macpherson at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade and it's clear that this winter it is possible to look fashionable and stay warm with a hat. Gone are winters where you can only bundle up in ski caps to ward off chill--this winter is about chic chapeaus that also keep you cozy when the weather is frightful.
Something terrible happened on Elm Street. No one was murdered or kidnapped--this is about Freddy Krueger and he has lost something. Something that defined his character. Unfortunately for Elm Street it was not his clawed gloves. Freddy lost his brown Fedora hat.
Gasp! Say it isn't so, but it's true. He needs a cool hat to complement his red and dark green-striped sweater signature look. The hat also helps round out his sinister character.

Social media outlets were all a-twitter this week regarding Gwyneth Paltrow's newsletter GOOP. GOOP is a newsletter (and website) where Paltrow shares her favorite places to visit, recipes, advice and inspiration from celebrity friends, and her random thoughts on topics important to her. This week, GOOP featured Gwyneth's choices for spring essentials.
The collection was full of simple, yet modern pieces that were are versatile and perfect for the season. Paltrow teamed with shopping site Net-a-Porter to offer these wardrobe essentials for purchase. The only problem" These "essentials" total over $18,000 ($16,434 for the clothing and shoes alone!). I doubt you can afford such a wardrobe, I know I can't. I usually hate "Dress for Less" articles because they pick pieces that may be similar, but don't give the same effect when actually worn.
However since I do believe Paltrow's "essentials" do make for a creative yet wearable spring and summer wardrobe, I scoured the 'net for pieces that give the same effect, but are available for much, much less.
