Puffy Parka

I hope you all in the northeast are staying warm and surviving this insane blizzard we are having. I seriously didn't know if we'd get the amounts they were calling for. But when they got on the news and started increasing the total amounts for the area I realized this storm meant business. The NYC area was calling for 20-30 inches and tons of blowing and drifting snow. I'm not really sure how much is currently out there...but it is a lot. And the snow drifts are nothing to laugh about. I saw people on my block in waist deep snow. All I can say is that the city better get this mess cleaned up by the time we go to work on Monday morning...or I don't know how I'll get there. Ugh!!!

I'm in the need of a new winter coat, and the blizzard outside my window has me doing some serious online browsing. Here are some of my current favorite puffy parkas.

Faux Fur Trim Belted Down & Feather Fill Parka by MICHAEL Michael Kors available at Nordstrom- currently on sale for $159.90

Outer Warmth Down Jacket available at Athleta- currently on sale for $178.99

Faux Fur Trim Chevron Quilted Down Coat by Kenneth Cole available at Macy's- currently on sale for $94.99

Nordic Parka available at J.Crew- $450 + 30% off when you use the code GETSHOPPING

Faux Fur Hooded Parka by Eliza J available at Lord & Taylor- currently on sale for $133

How are you spending your snowy blizzard weekend? How much snow did you get?

*UPDATE- I just bought the Eliza J parka (above). Almost $240 off the original price...how could I not?
