Doing it Wrong Singing Along

All of us New Yorkers woke up to yet another flurry of blizzard-like snow this morning, which made leaving the apartment a daunting thing to contemplate. There's almost nothing I hate more than being forced to wear hideously ugly snow boots. Show me the girl who says she feels hot in snow boots, and I'll show you a liar.

The thought of bikinis, bare legs, and open-toed sandals feels like a far-off fantasy right now--which is probably both good and bad. Good because it means I have at least a couple of months to lose a few of these winter pounds and get back down to my fighting weight (nothing crazy, just a pound or two). I've always been a long-distance runner, preferring to do extended, miles-long sessions on the treadmill without stopping. There's something about pushing myself to go further and faster with each run that brings out the competitive side in me. (Yes, I compete with myself. All the time.)

This morning, though, I decided to try something new: 4 minutes walking, 2 minutes at a fast run. Repeat 5x. And you know what? I worked up a serious sweat, probably burned more fat, wasn't stressed out about beating my previous times/distances, and still managed to get over 3 miles in. I highly recommend.

I'm wearing a Rag & Bone coat (the only thing saving my life in this weather), and Louis Vuitton bag. All photos by Mark Iantosca. xo


  1. I'm in NY too and this weather is killing me! And what's with the weather people calling it a "wintry mix?" What does that even mean? As for the running, I hear it's healthier to alternate your speeds. (It also helps burn way more calories.) Good luck!

  2. That red bag is so beautiful...and fit so well to your coat :D

  3. Yea, I'm in Philly and it's just as horrible here. I can't wait for spring, it's killing me!!! ha On a side note, your bag is lovely, I've been thinking of getting a red bag this year.

  4. And I really like the way your bloody RED lipstick tend to instil a sulfurous twist of Glam on your "Trendy Baby Doll-icious" prestance Dear !!!

  5. all i think about when it rains or snows is which shoes am i going to wear! my outfit is completely ruined now! it's all about the shoes! love your hair. love your photos! i want your rag and bone coat!

    finally hatachi

  6. Gorgeous coat! I love the color.

    Where do you go running? Just moved to the city and I feel like there's no place to run outside besides Central Park.

  7. Your coat is so great. Looks so warm as well. I find that the jacket is more of a problem than the shoes, because I tend to put a large number of cardigans under and the look like the Michellin Man. I refuse to wear a down jacket if I'm not on a mountain or in a forrest, so that doesn't help!

  8. Love this look for winter! heading to NYC in two weeks and this is great inspiration. Love the bold lips!
