Whimsical dressing is one way to escape the dreariness of the impending winter weather. Enchanted forests came to life on the Fall 2014 runways with leafy sets, embroidered animal motifs, and hooded capes, making a mysterious, dreamlike vibe one of the season’s most compelling trends. Here are five key items to complete your fairytale look.


  1. Casadei Suede Butterfly Shoe. Rich black suede and butterfly appliques add a playful twist on the standard strappy sandal.
  2. Bottega Veneta Snakeskin Bag. A classic shape is made current with genuine green snakeskin and black hardware.
  3. Caruana Bordeaux Wool Hooded Coat. Pull on this luxurious coat – a wearable take on Little Red Riding Hood’s signature look – for extra warmth on dark winter days.
  4. Shoshanna Multicolor Printed Dress. Swap your usual LBD for dark graphic prints that evoke a sense of drama.
  5. gorjana “Buckley” 18K Plated Antler Drop Earrings. Delicate antler earrings are a subtle nod to the outdoorsy trend.

Okay, “lands” is a stretch. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this HBO actress skipped the rigid interview process. But I digress. The annoyingly adorable character you know as Shoshanna (or that girl who licked Peggy’s face in Mad Men) is writing a bimonthly column for Glamour titled “My Zo-Called Life.” And she gushed all about it on Chelsea Lately this week.

Fashionista quotes Mamet, “[My editor] will get e-mails from me at like 4:00 in the morning and I’ll be like, ‘I wanna write about the evolution of eyebrows.’” Who wouldn’t?

Fact is, Shosh could write about drywall and we would still skip lunch to read it.
