>> I have weather-talk fatigue.  I’m sick of talking about how cold I am.  I’m sick of other people talking about how cold they are.  During this fashion week (month) period when small talk is employed as a distracting method of being social, I’m banning myself from weather talk.  After all, it can’t get anymore extreme than it has been in New York.  The other three cities in comparison will feel positively balmy.  Still, I may as well use this post as one last splurge on the weather convo before I shut it down completely.  If only to give thanks to the wardrobe heroes that have got me through what I think are the harshest fashion week weather conditions, I’ve ever experienced.

I can’t speak for those girls who have been braving sub-zero temperatures in bare legs, open-toes and wee blazers over sleeveless dresses, but my tactic is simple.  Heat Tech x two, sometimes three.  Thick John Lewis school tights x one, sometimes two.  Plus socks.  Hats of all sorts to keep the head warm – beanies or anything tight fitting work best.  And shoes with some semblance of grip – I packed two pairs of Nikes, some Nokian rain boots, with the only raised/heightened shoes being the Prada creepers.  Then there are the layers.  Many of them being coats which took up 25kg all by themselves.  My heroic knights in shining armour included the aforementioned Shrimps fraggle furry awesomeness, Alan Taylor‘s asymmetric tweed coat and a sneak peek blue symbols coat from NY label Skotison‘s A/W 14-5 collection.  Tights, flats and coats.  Apologies if that’s coming over all mother-knows-best and slightly boring, but to the scantily clad, I am offering my services to smother you with my layers.  Yes, you there with the crop top, denim cut-offs and goose pimpled skin.

    Love the grey cape-coat and the orange scarf!

    Kisses from http://www.withorwithoutshoes.com

    Today I bring you a Comfy total OxBlood outfit…..with Neoprene and my rock touch!!

  2. Avery K says:

    I absolutely love how you don’t sacrifice comfort for style. Then again what you wore for NYFW does not detract from what you normally wear. Let’s say a Hail Mary for layers, and not skimpy dresses.

  3. Erika says:

    The Tome cape and Prada shoes are absolutely stunning! Love your style 🙂


  4. Ria Louise says:

    If Willy Wonka had a clothes factory the result would be your wardrobe. I am so in love with your style. Seriously, you should consider doing guided tours around your closet. It would be like getting lost in a colour crazed Narnia!

  5. Lianne says:

    The Shrimps fur coat and the tweed Alan Taylor coat are beyond amazing…you look fab as usual!

  6. My Goodness! These shots are amazing, great looks, this is what I called “pure fashion”, I´m in love with these looks, from top to bottom they look so stylish! I´m killing to get a coat like these, they are all wearing back bags

  7. Zhanna says:

    I think Weather has over leaped NYFW in terms of topicality right now. And no fashion apart from waterproof Gore tex and wellies will be suitable right now, but I must say you look absolutely chic, whatever the weather SUSIE bubbles forever, that’s all I can say! <3 Zhanna, http://www.stylehenge.com

  8. Arachne says:

    Your hat with cables/wraps is wonderful! I’m glad that to be fashion You don’t have to show bare legs – I don’t know like celebrities can stand that – maybe if You go 15 meters from limousine to party…

  9. thats a great compilation of clothings… Good stuff!!

  10. Peak 25 says:

    you really do just have the best style…really!


  11. DinoB says:

    As always, I’m fundamentally thrilled with your need to be comfortable yet still proving that’s eqauated with looking boring. Kudos for layering with texture and referencing different designers in looks that couldn’t be more representable of your personality (and even though I don’t know you personally, the fact that your fashion lets me believe I do speaks greatly about the fact you do your job immaculately). Good luck in London!

  12. StyleSpectra says:

    Just love your style. Always so original!!!!


  13. sasa says:

    oh man it is cold in NYC. These outfits are awesome, they are so you. I love your blue coat and it’s my fav<3


  14. love your looks , and the orange coat is just amazing 🙂

  15. Natalie says:

    The only thing good about the weather is the experimental layers you can put together in an outfit. Creative.
    Can’t wait for Fashion Week to come to London next week, hopefully it won’t be as cold as in New York but I’ll still be photographing the street styles- they look fabulous. ♥

  16. Charlotte says:

    I looove all of your amazing and creative looks! Even though Im really minimalistic in my own personal style I think you are a genius when it comes to how you style your looks! And you are quite a genius in your writing too <3


  17. Dominique says:

    amazing, i love it !!!

    new post up,

  18. Ajin says:

    Looks very adorable and warm! I was in New York during fashion week too and it was painful to watch some girls with bare legs..
    I don’t blame them, though :p
    After all, it can’t be helped when there’s something that you simply must wear.

  19. That blue coat is absolutely stunning, but for the life of me I can’t find any information on the ‘Skotsian’ brand or label online! Do you have any more information about them? Thanks!

    • stylebubble says:

      Apologies I typed the brand name incorrectly in the credits but the right spelling and URL to their website is in the text. The coat is by Skotison – new NY-based label!

  20. GORGEOUS! Loving your style so much, Susie! 🙂


  21. The Provoker says:

    Yea I saw that Shrimps coat the first day and didn’t know it was you, now I know! Love that you were wearing the JW ensemble underneath, I’m sure he’d be so happy to know you took his designs from the big ben to the big apple. Saw you inside Phillip Lim, but couldn’t exactly maneuver over to you as the show was about to start. Will I be seeing you around LFW or PFW? Sure hope so! <3


  22. The Provoker says:

    P.S. You RULE at layering, I’ve took a few lessons and tips just from these shots here!

  23. Peter says:

    The photos of you and Lynn Yaeger warm the cockles of my heart. Heir apparent? 😉

  24. Judy says:

    haha, I love this post! I can totally indentify with the layering up! I am reading you from Scotland, and as a foreigner here I could never understand the girls here wearing balerinas and showing off bare skin in mid winter. 😀

  25. The Minx says:

    I love your hair long, Susie! And all of your trouser/hat combinations are absolutely delightful. I love how you take the implied seriousness of fashion week and turn it on its head.
