Sweet Velvet

It's all about mixing different textures this season. So what better way to accomplish this than by wearing a great pair of velvet trousers? These are super fab. A trouser with draped pockets and tapered ankles is so hot right now. A velvet pant is so unexpected and cool. You can wear this like the model is - a simple black tank and strappy heels. But I personally think these pants are begging for a lace cami and blazer OR a.....denim shirt. I know, I know...I can't believe I wrote that either. But it would look awesome. You can buy these GREAT pants here.

Polka Dots and Cocktails

I'm back! I'm so sorry I've been on hiatus...I've been busy with sinus infections which are so not chic! So I'm back with a great everyday cross body purse. I love how this can be worn with a cocktail dress or with a pair of jeans to a concert. I absolutely adore the inside polka dot print. So cute! The price isn't too steep. You can buy it here.

More Sequins Please!

I seriously cannot get enough sequins! So girly. So fun. So now. This skirt is heaven. You can even wear it belted or alone. This can be worn now in the heat with sandals and in the deep winter with tights and booties. Oh and how great is the antique gold/bronze color? So delish. You can buy it here.

The Perfect LBJ

I'm not loving the ad for this jacket but trust me, this jacket looks AWESOME in person. It's the perfect little black jacket to throw on over anything - a sundress,a gown, a top with jeans, top with shorts, or wear it as a top with jeans. The shoulders have volume but it's not too overpowering and it's flattering. I promise this jacket will look totally chic for years. I definitely think this is a better investment than the faux fur chubs that are out in the stores. They're great but you will NOT be wearing those in the spring...you'll be wearing this. You can buy it here.

I Heart New York Fashion Week

Excuse Me...I'm having a fashion week moment. Stunning. Insane. These looks from the Rebecca Taylor Spring 2011 show are beyond fab. Every single item is so pretty and glamorous. Check out this link to view all the looks from the show. I loooooooooooove all the orange frocks. Oh and how about this three tier skirt above?!? Seriously dying.

Polka Dots Made Well

The Alexa Chung for Madewell collection finally hit the web earlier this week. For those of you who don't know who Alexa Chung is...wake up. She's the "it" girl across the pond and has received Sienna type status for her boho chic style. Not to mention the hottest bag of the year by Mulberry was so adoringly named the "Alexa". I don't live near a Madewell...sigh...but I do loooove their clothes. The store is all about comfort casual cool. The Alexa Chung collection is very true to Ms. Chung's style - a lot of boho chic pieces that are easy to wear. I love this top. The velvet dotted blouse has a polished look and it's super feminine. You can buy it here.

Found the Hunter

Ridiculous. I looooove a hunter green satin pant. I don't know about you, but I'm really digging the look on the new season of Gossip Girl. There's a lot of colorful pants paired with Sequined blazers. We all know how fabulous sequins are! If you're someone whose afraid to wear a bubble gum pink wide leg pant or a cherry red boyfriend trouser, these pants are great for you because they're a little more understated. Hunter green goes well with almost every color. The color isn't bright and the shape of the pant isn't too trendy. Wear them with a racer back tank and booties out at night or with a tucked in silk blouse or fitted sweater with simple heels to work. You can buy these here.

White Hot

I've always been a fan of winter white. When worn properly it can look totally chic and weather appropriate. I looooove all of the "boyfriend" style trousers out in the stores right now, but it's rare that I see any in white. Here's a great pair that would look great with a tan or brown sweater/turtleneck and booties. Whatever top you decided to go with, I suggest it be simple and form fitting. Too much body in the top does not mix well with a slouchy lose bottom. As always with anything white, these pants can reappear in your spring/summer wardrobe. You can buy these here.

Third times a charm

Here are two of my favorite pieces from the third installment of the Kardashian for Bebe line. This dress is HOT! Actually, it literally is hot...it's made of suede. I just think it really works with everything else out for fall, like the military trend and the leopard booties. This bag is sort of like the new "it" messenger bag. It's great for during the day and for going out at night. The tassels are totally on trend. Way to go Kardashians! You can buy this dress here and this bag here.

Lady in Leopard

Leopard is so hot for fall, which got me thinking...shouldn't we all own a leopard print dress? A dress similar to these two shown above can be worn for work or play. Leopard print dresses are sexy but can still be conservative. I love mixing leopard with bright colors - specifically colorful shoes, bags, belts and jewelry. You can buy these great dresses here and here.

Gold Metal Hotness

Have I mentioned how much I need big Ghetto Gold earrings in my life? I love Large Gold Statement Pieces, especially earrings. Simple large earrings are one of the easiest ways to dress up any outfit. Here's a great inexpensive pair that's a little 80's and not so small. You can buy them here.

I want to wear denim with sequins

I'm in a denim vest mood today. A denim vest can really add so much to a simple outfit. This winter, try wearing skinny pants/leggings with a fitted sweater and a denim vest and boots. This is truly layering at it's cool casual finest. I am loving the look of this JCrew ad on net-a-porter featuring a denim vest with a sequined skirt. This is such a great way to wear something dressy casual. You can buy this great vest here.

I'll take two Cocktails, Please

Lately, I find myself wanting to wear two large interesting rings next to each other on the same hand. I like the idea of wearing two of my favorite rings next to each other, even if at first it doesn't seem to mix well. Believe it or not, this look can actually work. For example, pair a large cocktail ring on your middle finger with a different shape ring on your pointer. It's totally unexpected and a nice change to the stackable bangle trend. Here are two completely different rings that would actually work next to each other. I know this trend sounds like a bit much, but it really works when worn properly. Please avoid wearing anything on your wrist (maybe one thin bangle only) when participating in this trend. You can buy the blue ring here and the two castles ring here.

Over the Knees

I apologize for not posting yesterday. I was too busy celebrating 90210 day! But since I'm all about stepping into fall now, a great way to start transitioning is to buy a pair of over the knee boots (or as I will from now on refer to them as - OTK's). They spice up an outfit without much effort. Wear them over skinny jeans and a loose sweater and you're done. This hot pair of OTK's is reasonably priced and can be found here.

Sweet September

With the first day of September arriving, I thought it would only be proper to really get into the fall style. Here it is. This is the "IT" jacket people. It's way too expensive and absolutely fabulous. I do believe that cheaper versions will be out in no time. This military style wool and shearling jacket should be worn with lace, skinny jeans, over chiffon dresses (yes, you can wear chiffon), silk tops, and a great sweater on a cold winter day. I'm looking for a good look-a-like...and no, not the one from Express. You can buy this here.
