I quickly browsed Saks Fifth Avenue on the 5th Ave later this afternoon. An extra 40% off certain sale items and a second price cut in shoes seemed to make all Saks stores more crowded than before. I was attracted by a leather panel blazer, made by Cut25 (here, which is not available at saksfifthavenue.com).

We are in NYC, for Nathan’s birthday (today) and Christmas. Christmas is a great time to visit NYC, which explains all the crowds. The only thing you need prepare for is an outfit to keep yourself warm. My picks are a down coat, a fox fur scarf (a great style and deal, here) and wedge sneaks. What else could be better than burying the chin and ears in the super soft fur, when you walk in a chilling and windy winter day.
It is size 2 (size 0 was sold out). It fits well, expect for the slightly long sleeves. The lamb leather is not super soft (it is thick!), but not stiff at all. It should be great with a white tee and with the collar standing upright. It was $850 and is on sale around $310. How do you think of this blazer? Should I keep it?
We normally stay at Hilton Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, which locates less than 20 minutes driving distance away from Manhattan. I like lying in bed, viewing Manhattan skyline. There is a shuttle nearby to Manhattan (port authority). We usually just pay $13 to drive into the city, and find a free parking spot nearby Columbia University (between 80 st and 116 st, along Riverside drive, where I lived before).
Thank you for your reading and merry Christmas!
