outfit: buffalo check

I think I bought this coat back in 2010 and then promptly forgot it existed. A coat such as this is not necessary in California and since I was living there at the time, I didn’t wear it. A few weeks ago when I was getting my winter coats out I was like “holy crap”. Like did I actually buy something and then keep it? Did this happen? Did I really buy a peplum coat years ago. I was so ahead of the trends. Ha.

I know it’s a total jerk thing to post a coat that you cannot buy. Lucky for you, I’m not being a douche today. Below I’ve rounded up a few similar coats that I think would be just as awesome. I almost bought the J.Crew one and I’m sort of happy I didn’t because wouldn’t it be silly to have two coats that are basically the same? Of course it wouldn’t be! But I keep telling myself it would.

Also, people, please head on over to the Pinched YouTube channel and peep today’s episode!

the case debate

I have a huge white girl problem. Huge. I got a new phone almost two months ago and cannot find a case that I like. Wait, that’s false. I like the leather one Apple made however my headphones are not compatible with said case. This does not please me. Consequently, I haven’t been able to listen to any music on my commute. This is KEY to NYC living, people. So it’s a freaking issue.

That being said, it is hard to find a case that will accommodate the headphone pluggy inny thing and that I like. Below are a few that I rounded up. I’m taking votes. So please be kind and leave yours below.

If you put a gun to my head and made me choose a favorite, I don’t know if I could. I really love the Mara Hoffman (top left) and the Coach (bottom right) but as a wild card the Moschino is just way too freaking cute. That bad boy also comes in different colors. Also, it is important to note that I am continually misplacing my phone so perhaps I should get a more colorful, easier to find case?

I’ve rounded up a few more below in addition to those above. What do you think? Lend me your thoughts!

holiday gift guide: stocking stuffers

stocking stuffers


like & dislike stamps // necklace // gloves // hat // baggu bag // metro card wallet // animal magnets // WTF pencils // birthday book // wine tote // tablet case // monogrammed pouch // julep polish // eyelash curler

For the grand finale of the First Annual With a CH gift guides, I present to you the Stuffers of the Stockings or stocking stuffers as they’re more casually known. I used to live for my stocking because along with being stuffed to the brim with candy and free office supplies my dad pinched from the office, there was some good ish in there. Most recently, money. But that’s not the point. It’s a fun thing because you can throw all kinds of stuff in there and NOT WRAP A DAMN THING. Right? You got me?

Also, I feel like stockings are more for girls than guys. What do you put in a guys stocking? Condoms? Kidding. But like, really? My brother always gets Chipotle gift cards. So like that? Whatever. Beef jerky? I don’t know. It also doesn’t matter. That eyelash curler is solid gold, no pun intended. Also, I have those like and dislike stamps and although I was gifted them (and by gifted I mean my coworker was like ‘you want these?’) I would have paid money for them. They are perfect for the workplace. Any stocking will love them.
