Where To Buy Meghan Markle’s Christmas Camel Coat And Boots (Before They Sell Out!)
Meghan Markle's style tour continues, this week's stop is the Christmas Day church services she attended with the rest of the royal brood--in our opinion, looking chic AF. Meghan and her stylist Jessica Mulroney chose a belted camel coat, over-the-knee boots, Chloe bag and traditional ornate hat for the service. Crowds waited for hours for a glimpse of the future princess at the Church of St. Mary Magdalene for the yearly Christmas service. Thankfully, Meghan did not disappoint--not only did she dutifully waive to fans and show immense grace under pressure (so many royal family members AND fans!), but she also chose a traditional yet fashion-forward look for the day. We love it! Arm-in-arm with her groom to be, Meghan also appeared in tandem with the other royal couple Prince William and Kate Middleton (have you seen the two of them curtsying at the same time? It's a real treat). Now, back to the outfit--here's everything you need to know about what Meghan wore on Christmas day (plus, links to buy everything, just in case you have an extra $10K laying around...): Her coat: The piece de resistance of her Christmas day outfit was this belted baby alpaca wool camel coat from Canadian brand Sentaler. (Now, you might be wondering at this point why California born-and-raised (and soon to be British!) Markle would wear *so many* Canadian brands. The answer goes back to that BFF and stylist we referenced earlier, Jessica Mulroney. Jessica's father-in-law happens to be the former Prime Minister of Canada. So, there you have it. Mulroney and Markle (sounds like a buddy cop duo) chose this luxurious wide collar, fit and flare camel coat from the CA brand, which is still available (unlike everything else Markle wears). Actually, this particular coat is available for pre-order. Those hoping to get their hands on one will have to wait a little bit longer--the coat ships in March 2018, according to the website: This Sentaler Long Wide Collar Wrap Coat in Camel ($1,295) is available for pre-order. The item ships March 2018. Her boots: Meghan is a fan of Stuart Weitzman when it comes to her footwear. She's worn the American shoe designer before--but on Christmas she chose the bestselling Hiline boots to wear. The stretch-calf over-the-knee boots feature super-soft goatskin-leather and chunky block heels. Sometimes royal footwear can be a bit of a snooze-fest (think neutral kitten heel pumps--yawn!) so we love how fashion-forward this choice is. She's a total fashion girl! We want them *so badly*. Stuart Weitzman Hiline Over the Knee Boot ($798) Her bag: Last but not lease is her GORGEOUS designer handbag from Chloé. The 'Pixie' bag is a light-brown suede and textured-leather mixed media bag in 'Caramel' color. Made in Italy, the circular bag is just enough room to hold Meghan's cell phone, keys and compact. We especially love the gold finishes-- the studs and hammered top handles. Perfection! Chloe Pixie suede and textured-leather shoulder bag ($1,490) So, there you have it--Meghan's head-to-toe Christmas day look! Let us know in the comments section below--would YOU spend $10,000 on this outfit to meet the queen (if you had the scratch). We're dying to know!

Coach Is Buying Stuart Weitzman As Part Of Its “Brand Transformation”
In today's news we didn't see coming, representatives for Coach announced that the brand is acquiring Stuart Weitzman. This marks Coach's first acquisition, but given Stuart Weitzman's recent popularity with celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Olivia Palermo, Naya Rivera and more it seems very smart. Of the acquisition, Coach's CEO Victor Luis says it's all part of Coach's brand transformation. You'll note the look (and price point) of Coach bag, shoes and clothing has been markedly different under the creative direction of Stuart Vevers; Coach is now hoping to leverage Stuart Weitzman's expertise in fashion and fit to further grow their brand. On the flip side, Coach will be using their international cache to help grow the Stuart Weitzman brand on a global scale. "We look forward to advancing Stuart Weitzman's global development, especially by leveraging Coach’s international infrastructure and expertise in handbags and accessories," Luis says. So what happens when two accessory powerhouses join forces? Does one outshine the other? Does everyone benefit? Only time will tell.

The First Day Of Fall Is A Legit Excuse To Customize Stuart Weitzman Boots, Right?
How does one celebrate the first day of fall if Pumpkin Spice lattes have been available since the end of August? With a pair of custom Stuart Weitzman boots, that's how. The SWXYOU: Best Boots app just launched yesterday, which lets you customize a pair of thigh-high Highland or Lowland (new style alert!) boots now through October 6th. Ooooh we're feeling fancy just typing this. The tool lets you choose between two different heel heights (3.25 and 1.25), 10 stretch suede colors and three widths (narrow, medium and wide) to create your personalized shoe. Did we mention that the Highland, which just came out last year, sold out regularly at Stuart Weitzman stores? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that celebs like Olivia Palermo, Naya Rivera and Diane Kruger are fans. Just a thought. Basically, we're saying you shouldn't wait until the last minute to customize a pair of boots. Who knows how much longer your favorite style or color will be available. Even if you don't plan on actually buying the boots, it's still pretty fun to play around with the app--trust me, I've been doing it for the past 30 minutes.

Can You Tell Which Over-The-Knee Boots Costs $436 More Than The Other?
This winter, we're ditching the booties and going for full on coverage with over-the-knee boots. After all, they're our top choice for freezing temps and they slip on nicely over a pair of skinny jeans or tights. Plus, they're perfect for those that find it tough to wear tall boots made entirely of leather thanks to its flexible stretch backing. But when it comes to picking the perfect pair, there's tons of choices within a wide price range. So much so that it's tough to really tell the difference. Can you tell which pair of boots costs $436 more than the other? Answer: The boots on the left are Stuart Weitzman 5050 ($598) and the boots on the right are Luichiny Trend Lee ($161.99, down from $179.95).

Stuart Weitzman Fuels Your Footwear & Celeb Fetish To Benefit Charity
Stuart Weitzman, a purveyor of insanely luxe (and comfy!) shoes, is turning your footwear fetish into something more than an overflowing shoe rack -- as per his annual tradition, Weitzman teamed up with Hollywood's finest to raise money and awareness for ovarian cancer. This time, he's collaborated with everyone from Brooklyn Decker to AnnaSophia Robb on a five-piece range called The Stuart Weitzman Young Hollywood Cares Collection.

Stuart Weitzman’s SW1 Line Of Luxury Accessories Is Almost Here
New York-based shoe designer Stuart Weitzman joined creative forces with accessories guru Alvaro Gonzalez to produce a pricier line of footwear and handbags for Weitzman's high end retailers this fall -- including Neiman Marcus and others. Going against the grain of lower-priced diffusion lines, the SW1 collection (not to be confused with the posh London neighborhood) includes shoes ($595-$995) and handbags ($800-$1,500). The collection's 50 shoe styles boasts suede, satin, or leather in lush jewel tones (think emerald, ruby, purple, and dark blue). Other details of the line are inspired by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, such as resin heels with a deco-like, mosaic pattern (above). The collection also includes sharply-shaped handbags, from python skin minaudières and buttery soft leather cross body bags in neutral tones to clutches with neon-colored piping.

Good Stuff From Cheesy Stores: Simply Vera Pumps Look More Expensive On My Feet Than On Kohls.com
Vera Wang’s Kohls line has been turning out some really stylish shoes, and these distressed leather t-strap pumps are the best of the bunch this season. (In an attempt to demonstrate that the shoes are much less cheesy in reality – and an astoundingly good buy at $30 - I've juxtaposed my iPhone photo with the official Kohls.com picture.) While these pumps are nothing special in black, the taupe version, with a vintage-y look weathered and very slight sheen, can easily rival a shoe five times the price. The platform and chunky heel make them easy to walk in, and they look fantastic against opaque black tights. We're just sad the photographers at Kohls didn't do them their proper justice.
