Our Find: Peapack Mitten Company

Posted by

Last year, my aunt gave me a pair of embroidered mittens from Peapack Mitten Company for Christmas. Two winters later, they are still my must-have accessory when it’s chilly outside. Made from 100% wool and lined with polarfleece, they are the warmest mittens I’ve ever owned. (That’s saying a lot, considering I grew up in [...]

Our Finds: Toasty Time

Posted by

In 2007, Orange County girl Hélène Park was missing California and adjusting to a Brooklyn winter when she discovered a hole in one of her hooded sweatshirts.

Our Finds: Non-Prescription Glasses

Posted by

My 20/20 vision makes me feel guilty. I can see perfectly without the aid of glasses or contacts, yet I own three different pairs of specs. This isn’t a new obsession either. My little sister and I bought our first pairs of fake glasses when I was 12 years old and she was eight. And [...]

We’ve been stocking up on cold-weather gear lately. In New York City, walking is our main form of transportation, no matter how chilly it is. The only way to avoid frozen fingers is a good pair of gloves. Here are a few we love… Echo Lake Mittens, Steven Alan, $135 Echo Touch Studded Cuff Glove, [...]

Our Finds: Fall Scarves

Posted by

Scarves are total lifesavers on those days when the weather hasn’t made up its mind—too warm for a coat but chilly enough that you wish for something to wrap around your shoulders. With the a/c still cranked up in our offices, a scarf draped over the back of an office chair is essential, too. Here [...]
