Have you ever wondered what it would be like to infiltrate one of your favorite brands and just run around trying everything on? I generally don't like the idea of being teased with all the things I want and can't have (immediately), but curiosity got the best of me and I spent an afternoon at Stella McCartney testing my will power.

I got to see firsthand the Winter collection that everyone is waiting for. Those lug shoes, yes. Structured, boxy coats in pinstriped and plaid wool. And I left confident that circle pleating is maybe my new favorite detail. Now if I could just transport that accessories room over to my house.
