Neutral Party at Prada


After so much color and boldly patterned dresses, coats and shoes in recent Prada displays, I was surprised by the neutrality of the windows at the Prince Street store in SoHo when I passed by on Friday. All of these paler tones reminded me I have a lovely cream-colored wool coat I need to wear more often this winter.

Of course, then I think about getting on the New York City subway wearing said coat and cringe at the idea of what it will come into contact with.

Are you a fan of winter white?

I like this window...and lately I seem to be drawn to wearing neutrals more and more...even though my post today is super out there color. I love it when you show us NYC windows!!

I do like winter white...very much. But I don't own any except an itchy cable knit sweater that I rarely wear. I have considered a winter white coat - perhaps a pea coat - but worry that it will get soiled faster than I can say "why did I buy this coat in winter white?"

Have a wonderful Monday! xoxo, A

I am a fan of white and cream actually and I am eyeing a white coat with furry sleeves though that is very Snow Queen. But like you, I think of the London Underground and of the state it left previous white clothing I've been silly enough to wear on it!

Not really, I always think of hot summer in white.
Gorgeous pics, my dear Jill.
Always such a pleasure each and everyone of your posts.

The collar looks very Chanel FW 10/11:

Winterwhite is popular in posh skiing regions. You would rarely sight it in Vienna.

Love winter white but I'd have it filthy in a NY minute.
I'm already starved for color as fall descends..--all the stores with their greys and blacks..ugh.
Happy thanksgiving!

This thread has great information on shopping. A friend of mine told me about this cool app that allows you to get instant feedback from your Facebook friends on whether you should buy something or not (for themselves or as a gift). Here's the link - I think the app is coming out around Black Friday but you can sign up now:
