Mid-week Obsession - Colored Leather Jacket

Absolutely loving the huge leather trend for the Fall/Winter.  What's even better, is that leather is showing up (and looking good) in all sorts of colors.
Obsessed with this "cobalt" blue leather jacket by IRO.

Another jacket in a blue that is a little more subtle and wallet-friendly.

Designer Spotlight - Alice + Olivia Fall 2012

In anticipation of the Fall, I began reviewing the Fall 2012 collections shown last February and was thrilled to revisit Alice + Olivia's collection by Stacey Bendet.  The Alice + Olivia girl/woman is fun, playful, chic, and a bit edgy.  For this person, the collection did not disappoint!

But for this post it is her gowns/dresses, especially the ones shown below, that are the pieces of her collection that I thought really stood out.  They are beautifully detailed, feminine, and flirty.  The type of dresses that make you want to go out and wear them, even if you don't have anywhere to go.

As far as sunglasses go, is it form over function or function over form?

 I always admire the new sunglass designs and styles that come out season after season.  I want to try different ones and wear them around...all the time.  In reality, though, the sunglasses I actually buy and wear tend to be from the same designers or of the same style.  Why?  Because there are only a select few that actually work on my face.  I have a small nose bridge, so if the fit isn't right they either slide right off or press against my cheeks in an oh so very unattractive way!

Love, love, love my new Gucci sunglasses(see below).  They are oversize, yet they fit perfectly on my nose and were flattering(so I say) too!  Tried many other sunglass designers, but I somehow always come back to Gucci for their fit.

Also, loved the look and fit of these Prada ones below, but they weren't as comfortable and I, unfortunately, had to choose just least for now.

Mid-week Obsession - Shoes

Being an accessories addict, I can't stop thinking about shoes for Fall.  Love the Philip Lim below for the dramatic black/white contrast, the Sigerson Morrison for the feminine ankle strap, the Rachel Comey for its simplicity and color (perfect for Fall), and Aldo for its sparkle(who doesn't like some extra bling?).  Tried to pick a favorite, but just couldn't!  Maybe the Aldo heels for its relatively low price at $100.

Clockwise: 3.1 Philip Lim, Sigerson Morrison, Rachel Comey, Aldo

Michael Kors Dress

 Bought this dress many years ago, put it in my closet, and just found it (never worn with tags still attached!) as I was packing for vacation.  Love the linen dress for dinner dates on a warm weather vacation!

Note to self: Organize closet!!!

On Vacation!

 Sorry, if my posts have been a little light lately.  Went on vacation and ended it the way many great vacations do, with an illness!

Stayed at the Waldorf in Orlando.  Beautiful hotel!  The pictures do not do it justice!

Will post more tomorrow...

Wardrobe Essentials

Regardless of the season, there are some basic items that are absolutely essential to my wardrobe.  Whether I'm at home, vacationing at the beach or travelling abroad to a major city; these items are with me!

Some of my basic essentials right now:

Ok, I just need to do a little obsessing...In love with the T by Alexander Wang collection and if I could own the whole collection, I would!!  The fabrics are so soft and they drape well on the body.  If you haven't worn one yet, I!  On another note, the SPANX above are the first ones I have tried and purchased.  Truly an absolute essential under skirts and dresses for keeping your look smooth and polished, regardless of your body shape and size!
