Fresh Friday...Warm Wear.
For Him: Plaid Code.
A friend of mine had a birthday gathering this past weekend (shoutout to @JWillia83 ) and I happened to catch a whiff of some of his cologne. Literally, myself, and most of my other girlfriends, stopped dead in our tracks and asked to smell the bottle in his possession. Armani Code for Men Eau de Toilette is absolute BLISS for your sense of smell. The sweet and musky aroma is perfect for warm nights by the fire or a romp in the frost bitten outdoors. The prices are relatively reasonable and the line even carries deodorant, after shave balm and after shave lotion. Ladies, do yourselves a favor and buy yourself the ladies version (Armani Code for Women Eau de Parfum) and cop a bottle for the man in your life.
Armani Code Eau de Toilette
1.0 oz - $37.50 USD
1.7 oz - $57.00 USD
2.5 oz - $70.00 USD

RocaWear and I have never really clicked, that is, until this fall. When the line announced a complete re-haul of its previous image, I knew Jigga man must've commissioned nothing less than the best. I moseyed on over to www.rocawear.com and peeped the latest. While the women's line isn't really my cup of tea, I noted the brand shifting to a nice look for fall and winter 2010 with the men's collection. I love the low key flannel look for men this fall, and paired with jeans and boots, pea coats or bubble vests, the look is comfortable and timeless. Check out the looks I pulled below and hit up www.rocawear.com for more purchase worthy items.

For Her: Let It Snow...Or Not.
Where I'm from, Minnetonka Moccasin's are a necessity in the months leading up to and during the time of year when old man winter takes us all prisoner. The boots, made of sheep skin, deerskin, padded insoles and high density rubber, are guaranteed to keep you warm and cool at the same time.
While everyone may not live in the tundra that is Minneapolis, moccasin's can be made fashionable anywhere from the bright lights of Los Angeles to the streets of NYC. Pairing any of the styles below with belted dresses, sweater dresses, and even skirts and off the shoulders sweaters would give a hip/boho feel to an otherwise ordinary fit.

The military-inspired trend is all over the racks this year and I noticed a key piece in the Express 2010 winter collection. Express tackles a nice classic trench and adds flair with a tiered bottom, belt for a cinch at the waist, and accented shoulder epaulets for a flawless finish.
