Six Essential Winter Trends & Tips

Burrrr!! Having just returned from three weeks in sunny Spain I am having a bit of a challenge getting used to this brisk (read: freezing!) and often damp (read: pouring buckets!) weather. In fact, I was so caught up in the anticipation and prep for my big vacay that I completely neglected my usual seasonal wardrobe turnover. It is waaaay past time to swap out my sundresses for sweaters! Looks like I've got my work cut out for me. So what's in store for fall/winter fashion? Check it out:

DoubleTake Consignment Boutique founder and top fashion expert Marci Kessler has released her six essentials for building a comprehensive, stylish winter wardrobe. These must-have pieces are in line with the season’s hottest trends. 

ROBE COATS: This chic throwback to the 80’s provides a luxurious wrap-around to keep you cozy on your walk outside. The super comfy robe coat has been seen on everyone from Rihanna to Victoria Beckham.

HIGH-IMPACT PRINTS: This winter it’s no longer about basic black, but about spicing it up with high-energy patterns and colors. One popular pattern includes tribal print, which has been seen on Beyoncé and Heidi Klum.

CHUNKY KNITS: Finally- an essential that’s as comfortable and toasty as it is high fashion. Pair a chunky sweater with a flowy opaque chiffon maxi skirt to play up the texture of each piece and up the ante on this trend.

SLOUCHY WIDE LEG PANTS: It’s all about comfort with this trend. Make  sure to pair these pants with a fitted top to keep your outfit balanced, and make sure that you get them tailored to fit your body, as fit is key here to get the best look.

A-LINE DRESSES: The sixties A-line dress is back and in full swing. Flattering on every body type, this trend is easy to wear for women of all shapes and sizes.

LONG VESTS: Take a cue from the boys with this elongating look. Layer a long vest over a paper-thin wool sweater and a crisp white collared shirt. Complete the look with black leggings or skinny jeans and sky-high heels to appear chic and put-together.

Stay Calm, Cool & Corrected with a Tranquil Complexion

Fall has officially arrived, which means your schedule is also PACKED at work, events and weekend plans. Goodbye to carefree and tranquil weekends at the beach.  If the stress and changes in the weather are agitating your skin, try DERMAdoctor’s Calm, Cool & Corrected Anti-Redness Tranquility Cream ($85, Sephora). It helps soothe the appearance of redness, and gently hydrates and rejuvenates sensitive, rosy or rosacea-prone skin. It’s great for all skin types and especially for those with adult acne or rosacea.

Keeping Sick Kids Happy

Keeping your child healthy is probably the most important job you have as a parent. But as every mom knows, it often requires asking your little one to do some of her least favorite things, like getting a shot or swallowing a spoonful of medicine. And that can make your life, well, challenging. But you can cut down on those tears and temper-tantrums with a few clever parenting moves. These expert-approved stay-happy tricks will keep your sick kids smiling during even the most difficult situations:

Create a bedroom fort adventure:  Distract your little one by creating a bedroom fort over their bed and make the whole ordeal an adventure. All you need is a bed sheet, or some couch pillows A brightly coloured mosquito net would work perfectly too, erected only when your little darling is unwell. The healing powers of the bedroom fort are vast and magical.
Make jello in fun molds: A trip to Ikea or even Kmart will open up a world of interestingly shaped silicon baking trays. From dinosaurs to submarines, you’ll find an endless array of molds to suit your little ones' taste. These trays aren’t only good for baking, they also double as jello or ice molds. Low calorie Jello is a great option for a sick kid because it’s gentle on the tummy and will provide much needed hydration; It’s also fun! If your little one is stomaching solids, you can always chop up some fresh fruit before refrigerating your jelly, like strawberries cut into love hearts.
Coloring books: When you have a sick kid stuck in bed it’s good to get back to basics. Dust off the coloring books and invest in some fun new crayons and pencils. You could also try Google searching for ‘kid’s coloring’, where you'll come across a bucket load of fun (and free) print outs.
Make Medicine “fun”. Instead of telling your little one that it’s time for medicine, pull out his favorite novelty spoon and ask him who he’d like a visit from — Bob the Builder or Buzz Lightyear?  To make the medication more appealing, mix it with a sweet food like applesauce, yogurt or a fruit smoothie, or find a syrup that is already flavored ( is one).  You could also reward them with a favorite activity, like a game or extra playtime.
