Jacket Obsession: The Balestra Hoodie from Prairie Underground.

The newest love in my life is the Balestra Hoody from Prairie Underground.  This new creation from our favorite designers came in this winter and I scooped one off the floor immediately.  I have been wearing it over cashmere sweaters (so cozy) and over my shorter fall dresses.  The styling on this jacket is amazing.  The side zipper and extra long sleeves are the urban-moto side of this jacket, and the quilting (on back panel as well) and feminine waist are the Chanel-esqe side.  The black is ever-so-versatile, and as I have been wearing mine nearly every day, clearly goes with everything.  In February, the Balestra Hoodie will arrive at Helena's in Midnight blue!  Find the black now at both Helena's locations and online at Local Hem.

Congresswoman Rose De Lauro loves Prairie Underground!

She is fantastically chic and innovative in her dressing and is getting lots of attention for bringing an original sense of style to the Congress.  Rep. Rosa De Lauro (D-Conn.) was recently written-up on the Huffington Post as wearing "awesome" outfits to DC photo ops.  We think she looks smashing here in her Prairie Underground Long Cloak hoodie in Dior Grey!  Want it?  Buy it here online at Local Hem.

In the window...

The hues oxblood, wine and burgundy have been front and center for fall & winter, and will be around in new pieces for spring.  The Franklin Street window is a tribute to these plummy-reds.  From the top: Velvet top with Ada wrap belt and infinity scarf; Last Tango cowlneck dress; Tulle polka-dot top with London Times sequined sweater; and a beautiful Kensie dress is the picture of simple-chic.
