The Perfect Puffer Is Now Cruelty Free, Peta-Approved And Machine Washable

November 26, 2020

Harper Coats has made the puffer jacket of my dreams. I am legit obsessed.

First off, it’s the little yet big things: machine-washable, makeup-proof winter coats! No more stained coat collars OR smudged makeup. Things you don’t think about until it’s to late – your coat is dirty (could that be lipstick?) and you can’t simply throw it in the wash.

So these oversized cocoon hoods and extra-wide collars don’t brush against your face – it’s super easy to wear accessories, earrings and headphones/Air Pods, face masks!


It comes in three styles:

Uptown Puffer

Brunch Puffer

January Parka

And three different weights and colorways.

THE BEST PART!! Every style is $350 or less, cruelty-free and PETA-approved.


Don’t miss Black Friday promotion, which offers 30% off every style
through Cyber Monday (11/30). 


Harper Coats , coming straight outta NYC, was born from tireless coat transitions: from work, to workouts, to drinks, and dog walks the next morning. When it came to outerwear, why was there an empty space between function and formality? Vegan and stylish? Quality and cost? Durability and convenience?

Imagine – a premier collection of vegan puffers and parkas, presented in partnership with PETA?  I am smitten.

We are incredibly proud to launch our first official collection in partnership with PETA,” said Rachel Thaw, CEO of Harper Coats. “At Harper, we believe everyone deserves to feel warm, cozy, and stylish at an affordable price, but without sacrificing sustainability or impact. Harper Coats are made using the same timeless designs as your favorite labels, but we’ve swapped sustainable direct-to-consumer operations for luxury retail markups, and opted for PETA-approved, eco-friendly, machine-washable materials over animal-based textiles or fill,” Thaw continued.

“Kudos to Harper Coats for not only helping to stop the barbaric killing of animals but also going one step further by putting its fur stock to good use,” said PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “Kind shoppers can do their part by opting for cozy PETA-approved vegan clothing that no animal suffered and died for from animal-friendly brands like Harper Coats.”

Every style of Harper features a weather-resistant shell, cruelty-free down-alternative fill, ribbed storm cuffs, and cozy, fleece-lined pockets (internal and external).

Harper Coats are available for purchase in the United States through

That One Day To Night Dress You Always Wanted: Lucy Of Paris

December 16, 2019

What the holidays means (re: your wardrobe)

  1. After work cocktails
  2. Last minute party invites
  3. Celebratory gifting drop offs
  4. The need to look super fresh and ready to toast, clink and wish our loved ones and biz partners the best for a new year ahead, at any time of the day.

This means a fun day to night dress – perfect for office, luncheons, events and sexy evening cocktail or dinner.

We are gaga over this one from Lucy Of Paris. Seen here with boots from Zadig and Voltaire and Hanes opaque tights, a funky day time choice to make the look earthy and cool.

Every single dress on this site is an incredible purchase – why? Affordable! (Under $100!!), perfectly cut, whimsical and also structured. I am in a MEDIUM ( 5’4″ / 135 pounds – your average American woman) and never felt lighter, sexier and more comfy in a day to night look.

The only problem is it’s hard to choose only one. They really all look that great.

Need a quick hit this season? Lucy of Paris has got you covered!

YUMMM!!! Stocking stuffer alert:  CaPao, the first ever brand that is creating snack foods out of the cacao fruit (normally the beans get all the love). Entirely plant-based with no added sugar. These snacks are energizing, nutrient-dense, delicious, and super convenient.

Cacao is an ancient fruit that has been grown by farmers in South America, Africa and other tropical regions for centuries. They are the pods whose seeds are used to make chocolate. But until now, most people haven’t had the full cacao experience because after the seeds are used, most of the remaining fruit is discarded.

Rescuing this Wonderfruit is important because cacao contains many nutrients, vitamins and minerals such as potassium, magnesium, iron and fiber; and its husk, pulp and butter have unique tastes and textures that can be transformed into unique snacks.

What are cacao fruit snacks and why are they innovative?

Usually when we think of cacao, our next thought is chocolate, but the cacao fruit is so much more than just the cacao beans used for making chocolate!  CaPao is creating smoothie balls and fruit jerky using every part of the cacao fruit (minus the beans) leading to a nutrient-packed, energy optimizing, absolutely delicious wondersnack. These nutrient-dense, mouthwatering snacks are entirely vegan, gluten-free, and non-GMO. They contain no added sugar or preservatives. The snacks are individually wrapped and all of the packaging is recyclable.

Who are these for?

CaPao’s snacks are ideal as a snack before the gym (bye bananas!). Feedback from customers tells us that they are great for parents on the go. Kids who are ready to upgrade their snack game and teenagers already tiring of those “back to school” snacks they loved so much last month will love CaPao. The taste is so good and the natural energy will keep the whole family fueled. Try a smoothie ball in place of your morning coffee or even better, during your afternoon “wish I could take a nap” time. Keep the hangry at bay during traffic or long road trips. Your family and fellow drivers will thank you! If you’re not a breakfast person, customer feedback has told us that the smoothie balls can turn you into one!



Father’s Day For The Fit Dad

June 8, 2019

What I love about Father’s Day prezzies is that I always buy things I secretly want to covet down the line.

So of course, I’m thinking a super rad track suit would be ideal, especially since I like them oversized.

Umbro makes the perfect stuff to pick through. I settled on this dope looking track suit. And welp, I saw the women’s version and just got one for myself too – since I decided the best dad I know right now is my brother!

my bro!
Track Suit Love

Aslo, totally affordable! Ranges from $60 to $70 for each piece. A total no-brainer. I am totally obsessed with my black suit below. (As in can’t take it off).

The men’s is super comfy and cottony. Total home-run.

I’ll be adding more Father’s Day goodies over the next week. Stay tuned! Prednisone no prescription
