Autumn & Winter Ready!

It’s like “JCrew and Urban Outfitters had a baby”, a friend had said…  so of course my attention was instantly captured!  Aritzia offers many wonderful basics with an interesting design twist; which is refreshing to see!  Here’s my current favorites… The Talula Trancas Jacket (a very versatile 3 season jacket, which one would never know from the online description) and TNA Botanie Jacket (slick lightweight bombers made popular last year which have carried over to this season) which means yayyy, I get a second chance since missing out last time ;)!  Also, all my orders always arrive prettily and professionally packaged; I’m very impressed :)!

*Addendum on February 9, 2015:

For those wondering about how the Talula Trancas coat detaches, here are some pics I hope you will find helpful.  Please feel free to ask more questions regarding this coat and I’ll do my best to clarify.

    Hi… I know this is totally random but I have been trying to figure out if the lining and hood are detachable on the trancas jacket… because you said the website says nothing. Thank you :)

  2. Hi Lynn:

    I just posted pics showing how the various parts of this coat detaches (via zippers and buttons). Keep clicking on each pic for a larger view. Only the faux fur trim detaches (pic. 1) but the coat does separate into two separate pieces as you can see. The last picture is of the coat fully re-assembled. It’s a great coat and I hope that if you do purchase it, you’ll enjoy it just as much. Thanks for commenting.

    Hi! I was wondering if this jacket is warm enough for wearing in the snow? Or the coldest temp you wore it in and still stayed warm enough? Thanks!

  4. Hi,

    I was wondering for the Botanie jacket, is it warm? What temperature do you think the jacket is suitable for? I really like the style, it is slimming, but I’m afraid it won’t be durable for the harsh winter conditions in Canada.

  5. Hi Jo:

    I’ve worn my Botanie jacket only during Autumn/Fall to very early winter (40s-60s). If you are prone to feeling cold, I would also recommend wearing a hoodie as an extra layer. It’s pretty thin and not really suitable for harsh winter conditions in my opinion. It’s not waterproof either. If you are looking for a true winter jacket, I wouldn’t recommend this one. The Botanie is a thin sporty jacket. Hope this helps you decide. Thanks for your question.


  6. Hi Anna:

    I’m assuming you were wondering about my Talula Trancas Jacket and not the Botanie Jacket. If you were wondering about the Botanie, you can check out my response to the other commenter. As for the Talula, I wore this jacket throughout the entire winter without feeling the need to switch to any other jacket. I typically wore a hoodie or sweater underneath on the coldest days (we had a few single digit days in New York last season… as we typically do). I also believe that wearing hat or earmuffs, scarf, and gloves makes a big difference for me too. I’m very prone to feeling cold but this coat really kept me warm and I love it. Hope this helps you decide. Thanks for your question.
