CURRENT OBSESSIONS: Jackets, Jackets, Jackets!

must have jackets for fall and winter

October is coming to an end (wtf, it was just New Year's Eve??), and the dreaded cold is hitting us hard. This year, no more boring parkas. If we're going to have to bear this weather, we may as well have fun and look GOOD doing it. 

Here's our current favorites we'll be wearing until we have to go trekking through the snow (then maybe the parka will come out...*eyeroll*)


Ok. Unzipped this one for the first time only to reveal a beautiful (lol who am I) burgundy silky lining that was practically screaming "LUXURY!" at me.  The price point on this is insane! It's the softest faux fur with vegan leather detailing- definitely not your typical black fur jacket. Practical to wear every day or a nice option to have for a night out! Snatch this up while you can.

For a second there, I felt like I kept seeing the same leopard coat on every girl walking the city?? Then there's those wannabe cute leopard jackets that the print just looks cheesy (not cuteeee). It's hard to find that balance between TOO EXTRA and not enough sass. That's where the Party Animal Jacket comes to play. This one is by Blank NYC, and has a cool patchy look. It's long, oversized and the coolest jacket to either wear with a dressed up look or make your not-so-dressed-up outfit LOOK dressed up.  Pair it back to the Tate Sneaker and Spanx Leather Legging or throw on the Rey Moto Wrap Skirt and a tight black top with black tights and boots! You can't go wrong here.

Ok, absolutely DEAD for this one. One of our favorite new Bird Bee brands, Capulet Company, nailed it with the coziest, warmest trucker jacket. It's not super oversized, and looks so cute with basically anything. I've been wearing it as if it's part of my outfit, but then I go outside and it literally keeps me so freaking warm. The color is perfect too! If you aren't familiar with Capulet, the designers created the brand to embody a "borrowed from the boys" aesthetic while maintaining tailored feminine fits. Seriously OBSESSED!

MEET THE TEAM: Assistant Manager - Emily

                      MEET EMILY                     

Tell us about yourself! My name is Emily Eicher, I am soon to be 20 years old and I am the assistant manager & sales associate at BIRD BEE. I live in Midtown with too many plants in my apartment. Next year I'll be finishing up school at Wayne State University and will graduate with a double major in Fine Arts and Psychology, before going on to be an art therapist. I love art museums, tea, and Beach House. 

How long have you been working at BB? I have been working since July 2017, just a few months after the brick and mortar store opened. 

What's your zodiac? Scorpio!! I feel like we get a bad rep but hey, that just adds to the mystery. If you know us you’ll love us ;) maybe.

What's your go-to outfit? My go-to is definitely some black fishnets under ripped jeans, a bodysuit or black turtleneck, my trusty Doc Martens (I live in these things), and simple but funky gold earrings. I like to keep things minimal, but with details. 

Fav BB brands? Pistola jeans are a MUST always, but lately i’ve been especially loving Matt & Nat’s products & message. Inspired and respectful of nature, they don’t use leather or any animal based products and instead experiment with recyclable materials. So,  they’re not only environmentally responsible, BUT innovative & fashionable too! I’ve also found myself wearing a lot of cozy Social Sunday and Z Supply as the weather gets colder. 

Guilty pleasure? Ariana Grande ( “God is a Woman” is a JAM!)

Netflix show? American Horror Story 

What do you do in your free time? In my free time I like to work on art: drawing, painting, collaging, & even some jewelry making. My favorite art form is small press / print work so I began making zines a few years ago, which are like mini self-published magazines, full of drawings & writing. Art has always been something so therapeutic for me & perfect for me to unwind with in my (very limited!) free time.

Just because the weather is changing, doesn't mean you have to change back to your basic ways. Set down your pumpkin spice lattes, throw away your Ugg boots and North Faces. This is the guide you've been searching for if you're not about that basic B lifestyle. Sure we all love our cider mills, pumpkin spiced everything, and boring yoga pants, but here's the BIRD BEE way to do fall.

There's more to life than a PSL
Try an Almond Milk Latte with 2 pumps chai and 2 pumps vanilla instead. Still feeling spicy? Just add a pump or two of the pumpkin flavor to this or your go-to coffee. 

Skip the over-filtered fall leaves and apple orchards pics + try this app instead 
We can't give up our apples or cider, but we can give up the X-Pro II and the Valencia filters. Lucky for you, we're giving up one of our insta secrets. Download HUJI - the retro disposable-camera app, you're welcome.  

Can we just not say "sweater weather" anymore? Anyway, here are some of our shop favs...
The Lucia Cowl Neck Sweater ($62) ++ The Everyday Sweater ($59)

Like we said there's more to fall than pumpkins and apples
Voluspa's new flavor: Copper Clove. With notes of clove spice, amber and autumn squash, this fresh smelling scent is the opposite of apple cinnamon. Shop it in-store only, this limited edition scent won't be here for long!

We're obsessed with "these" boots
You'll want to save your pennies now for these babies! SNEAK PEEK of our new boot coming in October  -- the SOL SANA HARLAN. They're instagrammable, warm and actually stylish.

Throw away your basic-b leggings 
Still can't part with your leggings? I guess us either. We're from the mid-west, we're not getting rid of them, but we will at least upgrade to the Spanx Faux Leather Moto Leggings ($110)

Let's just not wear them everyday. We've got tons of options instead at BIRD BEE, just as comfy, but more badass than your boring yoga pants. Check out the: Soft Spun Knit Wide Leg Pant ($60), Crushed Velvet Trouser ($54), and Soft Spun Knit Culottes ($58)
