I broke away from the South for a couple of days, I needed a girlfriend/fashion fix! Sad we missed fashion week but glad we made it to Coterie. It was a whirlwind trip but worth every second. I can’t believe … Continue reading
Heading to my Shangri-La on Wednesday.
I have always had a love affair with New York City.
I used to go there with my mother at Christmas, it is our special place.
As a little girl I dreamed of living there when I grew up-
as an artist, a museum curator, a fashion designer.
Luckily, I am now able to travel to New York for work.
I am traveling with one of my “besties”!
She is letting me tag along on another Poppy’s buying trip.
We always have a wonderful time,
a little work (actually a lot but it doesn’t feel like work),
lots of vino and good laughs!
The Big Apple better watch out!
What to pack….
1. A great bag
2. Cozy shirt for traveling
3. Easy layers to wear to market
It is freezing in there.
4. Great Pair of Jeans.
I love these a little worn paired with the Chanel Inspired Blazer
3. Comfy Ballet Flats for lots of walking
I really hate flats but for these I’ll make an exception
4. Great Day to Night Outfit-
Dressy blouse paired with a blazer and some edgy jewels
4. Something for dinner and possibly dancing…
5. Some Kick Ass Shoes
6. And of course a little inspiration.
I know Labor Day has passed but do not put away your white jeans just yet!
I love my white jeans allll winter.
With my riding boots. With big slouchy sweaters. With a structured tweed blazer and a great scarf.
My other fall and winter must haves….
Winter white slacks, wool coat and pencil skirts with opaque tights.
Ok, sooooo – I was asked to speak to a women’s organization about Fall Trends.
I am very excited about it. I do two things very well.
2. Talk about Clothes/Shopping/Trends
So I hope that I am not spoiling the discussion but I started putting my ideas together.
This may be a two or three blog process but here is a start to fall trends.
So you know, I don’t always like ALL of the trends out there.
These are the trends that I can see easily fitting into my wardrobe as well as my friends and clients wardrobes.
Fall Trends to Buy….
1. LEATHER – I keep repeating myself but this may be my fav.
Leather leggings, Leather trimmed blazer, Leather skirt.
“The more appealing woman has a bit of an edge to her that makes her alluring.”
2. Dresses/Suits – Yes, the Mad Men look is still in.
I love a form fitting dress or a beautifully tailored suit with sheer hose and a pair of super high heels.
A great addition to your work wardrobe or for all my ladies who lunch.
Prim Appeal with an Urban Edge.
3. Peplum – I love anything with a peplum.
I think they hide a multitude of flaws.
4. Military Jackets – Anything double breasted.
This will look great with jeans for the weekend or dressed with a great pair of slacks for work.
I love this Free People Military Jacket- it hits on all of the trends double breasted, peplums, and cable knit
I especially like anything army green. It is one of my favorite colors to wear.
5. Western Wear – Anything with suede, shearling or denim.
This is definitely an easy trend. I love this denim shirt from j.crew. It would look great with the leather skirt or leather leggings.
Or a great boucle skirt for casual Friday.
These booties are really cute. Be careful with this trend.
My suggestion is unless you are 6 feet tall with skinny skinny long legs buy them a little more narrow at the top so your skinny jeans with lay just over the top of them. If they are wider at the top and you tuck your jeans into them they will make your legs look shorter and stumpier.
And noooooone wants this!
Happy Shopping, I’ll be back with more fall trends shortly!
