Considering it’s now December, it should be no surprise that Mother Nature would make a point of giving us the cold shoulder. With holiday shopping in full swing, you should make sure to stay toasty in the season’s freshest outwear (capes and shearling) or if staying toasty indoors is more your thing…entertain yourself with quality reality TV, shopping for handmade goods, and of course… taking advantage of our sale with an additional 25% off + free ship (use code HDAZE).

Questionable Collab
The Grey Ant x TEVA stiletto has made quite a splash on the blogosphere this week, with reactions ranging the whole love/hate spectrum. Can someone tell me what purpose these serve? I just don’t get it. Nevertheless, while this collab is definitely an oddball, Grey Ant has a reputation for kick-ass fashion forward design and we just picked up it’s sibling brand, Grey Antics! Woo! [nitrolicious]

Caped Crusader
