Shopbop Giveaway: Thanks for being awesome, buy some jackets on me.

Hello from somewhere over the Midwest! En route to visit Roberto in Oregon and had a little surprise for you.

I’ve been so all over the map lately, and yall have been such exceptionally supportive commenters, so I figured it was time to reward you with something more than another low-fi Black Crowes video. Let’s fake out the exploding national debt with a little funds-assisted consumerism on Shopbop, with a $100 gift card!

Jack Frost crop-dusted the Commonwealth last week, and rather than familiarize myself with the thermostat in the new house, I unpacked a bunch of my fall clothes and coats to wear on the couch. [Rob, come home!] This always poses a bit of a risk, since Eli is immensely turned on by lumpy piles [you can take the cat out of Schenectady…], but in any event, it felt like Christmas.

Assuming your coats don’t have pockets full of forgotten cash—because mine never do—this gift card ought to be a nice boon in your fall shopping endeavors.

Let’s get a taste of the goods:

These Rebecca Minkoff coats are totally Keef Richards worthy:

I’m too scared to get a full time job again partly because all I’ve accumulated for office wear over the last 2 years are ratty t-shirts, but with a few of these Alice and Olivia jackets on top, I’d be golden:

Also peep the Milly NY coats for some warmer, full-length options.

I’ll announce the winner November 3! So comment below for your shot at $100 to spent at the Mecca. Good luck!

Also, peep the prolific Shopbop Pinterest for lots of daily inspiration.

News from Oregon coming right up! Oh, and for a little fun retrospective of my last visit: our trip to Stoller Family Vineyard, an amazing night at Lange Estate Winery, and Sunset in a roadside orchard.

    I would spend the $100 on shoes. Probably on a pair of boots. I am addicted to boots and your blog! The real dilemma would be…would I go for these funky boots

    OR this classy pair?!?!

    OK. So I would procure the Hunter Carnaby Snake Rain Boot. T’would be perfect for messy Saratoga weather…..and, they look super cool :)

    By the by, loved your post on children. I have two myself, but there are thoughts in the recesses of my mind that don’t dare to go where you did. Bravo for going there.

    Its hard to imagine anyone’s fall wardrobe couldn’t use a boost from a little Shopbop love …or yet another coat, because who can get enough of those!?

    I too am afraid of the full time office job, and a little shopbop therapy would keep my delusions going for a while longer.

    We love all your posts, but these are great too 😉 It would probably take me a year to use becuase i get stingy when I have gift cards, but i could definitely use something new and fall-y! Thanks!

    Beacuse I’ve decided to go back to law school after 15 years out of college, I am back on the “B” word (gasp…BUDGET!). I would be so happy to win and would use this gift card to get a fab jacket that makes the 22 yr. olds in my classes envious!

    I love your blog and Shopbop! Plus, I desperately need new office clothes now that the temperatures in Jacksonville have plummeted. Then again, I have been drooling over the Pendleton towels for the past year…

    Well, my Shopbop “hearts” list has reached five pages, so I’m pretty sure I could do that gift card justice!
