Livvy Échapeau Water Resistant Hat & Scarf Combin

Livvy Échapeau Water Resistant Hat & Scarf Combin by L FOR LAZARUS - click to buy

We don’t know about where you are, but here in London, it feels like winter is still in full swing. After a few weeks of warm weather, we’ve been plunged back into the cold and darkness, with rain every day and enough chill to make us want to curl up under a blanket and stay there for days. That’s why we’re pining for the new Échapeau from L for Lazarus. This cozy scarf-hat hybrid will keep you warm on the coldest days, but if the combo piece doesn’t work for you, each piece is detachable and can be worn separately.

If the Échapeau isn’t your style, MeDusa’s cheerful accessories will be perfect. The bright plastic bags will keep your essentials safe and dry while giving your look an extra punch of color. MeDusa bags are fun accessories no matter the weather: the cute Round Yellow bag is always a safe bet, but the Whale bag is a fun alternative when you need a little more space.

How do you deal with chilly, wet weather?

Red Carpet Fashion at the Oscars

Posted in by

Hollywood’s biggest stars were out in full force for last night’s Oscars. But we think some of our favorite stars could use a little help with their accessories – we’d love to see them wearing pieces from Boticca’s talented designers. We’ve selected new Oscar red carpet looks for Best Actress winner Meryl Streep, Best Actress nominee Rooney Mara, presenter Natalie Portman, and the red carpet’s reigning queen, Angelina Jolie. Which red carpet star is your favorite?

Meryl Streep was dressed to win last night – her gorgeous gold Lanvin gown was a showstopper that matched the Oscar statue perfectly. But Meryl tends to play it safe when it comes to accessories, so we’d like to see her do something a little different. We’d recommend she switch out her earrings for the more original Carousel Earrings by Arosha Luigi Taglia. We’d also like to see her carrying Dareen Hakim’s Le Icon Black Python Clutch. Maybe now that Meryl is a three-time Oscar winner, she’ll take a few more chances with her style.

Between her red carpet style and her brave humanitarian works, Angelina Jolie can do no wrong. Yet we think this A-lister could have gone a bit bigger with her accessories. We think she should mix classic earrings, like Paula Mendoza’s Roble Earrings, with a rebellious cuff, like Chic Jewel Couture’s Crushed Cuff Bracelet. Angelina, are you listening?

Rooney Mara is Hollywood’s hottest young star. After playing Lisbeth Salander in the American adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Rooney seemed to take on Lisbeth’s bad-girl style. So we were disappointed to see that she went accessory-free at the Oscars. We think her winter-white Givenchy gown would have benefitted from some Boticca hardware, like Gisele Ganne’s Mourning Ring and Eina Ahluwalia’s 3D ‘Trishul’ Earrings.

In 2011, Natalie Portman won an Oscar for her performance in Black Swan, but she didn’t look like a winner last night. Her vintage Dior gown could have used a little something extra. We wish Natalie had paired her Dior gown with Here Comes the Bride, Orchira’s modern approach to the pearl necklace. The Goddess Emerald Bracelet by Nikki Baker would be the perfect finishing touch.
