Introducing Dover and the Two-Tone Trench Coat

Hello, friends. Surprise! It's me again. Guess what? I got a new trench coat from a brand new line of outerwear called Dover, by Karen Reinitz and Abigale Levinson, the designers of AKA New York. This inaugural collection may be small but it packs a big punch: each piece is a reinterpretation of a classic silhouette by incorporating fun and unexpected details, like leather sleeves, fur cuffs and bright jacquard panels. Needless to say, I'm picking up what they're throwing down: I would be very content with owning every single current piece of Dover available.

My trench has leather sleeves and I really like love it. Do you? I realize the sleeves are a bit short -- that tends to happen with me and outerwear because I'm all limbs, like a supermodel. Just kidding, I'm actually built more like a spider. Supermodels don't have the apple-bottom like myself and other members of the arachnid class.

It's hard to believe it's December 9th already -- Christmas is in just over 2 weeks! Aside from boxes of Dover under my tree, I don't think I need to tell you what I'm asking for this Christmas but how's this for a Christmas list?!

What are you asking Santa for, my materialistic little messes?
