Practical Winter Outerwear

Ughhh, I'm so not a winter person even though they are much more tolerable here in Toronto than the ones I grew up in. Having a good PRACTICAL jacket is so essential for getting through the season and luckily here in Canada we have some incredible designers for outerwear. This year I was looking for a more boxy fit, mega warmth but not bulky and movement restricting causing the 'Michelin Man' effect but bonus features including leather details and fur trims. Rudsak hosts sample sales twice a year that I usually hit up so when I visited their Facebook page to look for details I WAS TREND STRUCK by one of their jackets. Seriously guys it was love at first site and you're damn right I visited them to scoop it up. So everyone meet Caney, she is actually everything I wanted and more. On top of everything it has stylish leather sleeves, a hood entirely lined with the coziest fur and a double front zip that I actually like wearing open when the time is appropriate. The best part about everything is that when they host their sample sales they do 20% in store so because this was new season I didn't quite get the sample deal but the discount sure did help me out. I have truthfully never loved a winter jacket as much as this one nor felt this prepared to take on a winter. So thank you Rudsak you have made my cold winter season ahead complete. Also, what do you think of my new Le Chateau kicks? I am a black bootie addict, it's official. The line up at my front door is just as bad as a nightclub on a Saturday night. But here's the thing aside from the attractive leather skin the heel is chunky, which we all know is my fave BUT also provides mega comfort, it's got a lug sole to give you traction as the streets start to get a little slippery and the height is higher than the ankle so you don't have that bit of skin exposed when you're wearing skinny jeans. I'm telling you people there is always a time and place for each and every one of those 50 pairs of black shoes you have to get worn. 
Or maybe I'm just crazy! Stay warm you pretty little thangs xx
