Moody Picks – Plaid Blanket Scarf

As many of you know the blanket scarf trend is getting more popular and literally getting bigger each year.  Check out Burberry’s much larger blanket scarf/coat here – isn’t it fabulous?  I know that many of us missed out last year on ZARA’s infamous sold-out camel plaid blanket scarf (seen on AP here).  Many of us took to eBay in droves to track down any duplicate we could find to satisfy that immediate need.  This year ZARA came out with 3 more blanket scarves patterns that are already sold out online - which I’m not surprised. I’m secretly hoping that they will restock each of them at least one more time before the end of the year. If you are like me, some of you have been searching high and low for the perfect blanket scarf to add to your wardrobe this season.  Well, fret no more, I’ve done some of the research for you.  Here’s a quick guide of some affordable blanket scarf alternatives that will keep you both warm and cozy this fall/winter.  Have you added a blanket scarf to your fall/winter wardrobe yet? Where did you find yours? Let me know in the comments.

Moody Picks – Wear Pink!

I’ve been meaning to bring back my previously named Fresh Picks to Follow segment for some time, but I never had a chance until now.  I figure that this today is as good a time as any especially since it’s the beginning of October.  By now, we all know that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) and that it’s time to support breast cancer research if you haven’t already started.  There are so many different organizations that are working tirelessly to help prevent, treat, and ultimately eliminate breast cancer.   And you can help fund the fight against breast cancer by scooping up one of the many pink-ribbon inspired products.  I’ve rounded up 8 of my favorite products that give back a portion of their proceeds to research while continuing to spread awareness. How will you show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness month? Let me know in the comments.

Moody Style: Daytona Grid

Every once in a while  I swing into Anthropologie to check out the sale rack to see if something catches my eye.  Most of the time I walk out of the store empty handed, but other times I find a spectacular item that makes me want to spend my money no matter the price.  My trip is even more amazing when the item is in my size and under $50.00.  That’s what happened when I found this Yoanan Baraschi skirt a couple of months ago.  This skirt was the only one on the rack and it was in my size, so naturally I grabbed it and ran into the fitting room.  I'm pretty sure you guys know what happened next :)  I love the color and the grid pattern on the skirt and I can’t wait to style this skirt all sorts of ways.  I'm sure that you will see this again this fall/winter.
