nau stole

I've stalked this item ever since Nau introduced it last year in their new collection, so I snapped it up when it went on steep sale. It's filled with 850-fill down, which makes it inherently warmer than most down jackets, even taking into account its billowy, heat-releasing cut. I wouldn't wear this on the coldest of Ithaca days, but I like that it gives me some tunnel vision when the hood is on (perfect for the computer lab) and that it's quite a thin version of a down jacket, which means that I don't look like a poof cloud. It also looks best buttoned up rather than open down the front. Many women complimented me this weekend when they saw this, and the unique style is probably one of my favorite purchases this year. (Note this is the M/L size, which means that it's positively voluminous in the chest area, though not shapeless overall. But I made sure to try the larger of the two sizes because the only thing I cared about was that the back went past my butt a little bit.)


  1. This is unbelievably cute. If you'd described it to me, I'd probably say it sounds godawful and nasty-lookin', but this is great. (Also, you're adorable in it...like a large, comfortably swathed baby).

  2. This is so cute. Ahh! And your post about the Pierre Hardy bag disappeared to me for some reason.
