Fall Must Haves

Just wanted to thank the SITs girls for featuring me today. Welcome to all of those who are new to my site. Hope you enjoy.

Must Have List for Fall 2009

Nothing like the changing seasons to get excited about updating your closet. Below are a few of my must haves for the upcoming fall season to help inspire you until the September issues hit your mailbox!

Leopard Print Blouse

Animal prints are everywhere this season, but they’ve managed to live in my closest for some time now. I’ve never met an animal print I didn’t like. I love this blouse because it has just enough sass but when paired with jeans or a pencil skirt it won’t make you look like you’re channeling Catwoman.

Black Blazer

There are many versions to the blazer this season. But there’s one that really has my eye…a fitted blazer rocking exaggerated shoulders. It has my name written all over it. Throw it over a delicate floral print dress to add a little edge to your outfit.

D&G Peak Lapel Blazer, $695

Sequin Skirt

Looking to liven up your wardrobe…just add sequins. There’s no need to be afraid of looking like a disco ball if done properly. Pair with opaque black stockings, flat boots, white tissue t-shirt and a fitted jean jacket and you’ll have mastered the casual-modern look.

Haute Hippie Mini Skirt, $295

Over-the-Knee Boots

As soon as I saw these at Barney’s a few months ago it was love at first sight. There are so many ways to wear them, where to start? Throw on with leggings and an over-sized sweater that’s belted at the waist and you’re all set for Saturday brunch. You’re sure to be the one everyone is checking out wishing they could have your style.

Chloe Over the Knee Boot, $1,195

Red Bag

Red…it’s not just for Valentine’s Day this year. It’s the easiest way to add some spice to your closet. I love this bag from Balenciaga. Not only is it the perfect color, but it has a bit of hardware to give it a touch of roughness.

Balenciaga Work Handbag, $1595

Rodarte on Target this Holiday Season

Looks like it's going to be a good Christmas this year. Rodarte, the darlings of the fashion industry, unveiled their 55-piece Target collaboration in a preview to editors yesterday. Lacy slip dresses, denim jackets, tulle skirts and a killer black dress are what we have to look forward to this holiday season from the collaboration. Hitting stores December 20th, the collection will retail for under $80...yep, you read correctly.

When asked to describe the collection for WWD, Joshua Thomas, a Target spokesman said, “It’s very feminine, yet very modern. The collection incorporates a rich mix of patterns and fabrications and everything from sequins and bows to faux fur. The key with Rodarte is layering.”

It may be a stretch trying to imagine translating the hand-wrought designs of Rodarte into mass market designs, but if anyone is up to the challenge Target has found its match. 

First it was Jimmy Choo, who announced their collaboration with H&M and now Rodarte?  Here's to a happy holiday season.

Seeing Red

You have a bold personality, and this season's color has your name written all over it. Red is the hot trend for the 2009 Fall Season.  It's sure to add the perfect amount of spice to your wardrobe, not that you necessarily need any help in that arena!  

Looking to channel your inner Jackie this season? Well Gucci has taken the guess work out for you and has updated one of their classic handbags. Pair with a simple grey sheath dress and hot pair of leopard heels and you are ready to go. Somewhere Jackie would be smiling down!
Tory Burch is known for blending timeless and classic designs with a modern twist. While her collection can be found on the set of Gossip Girls and socialites alike, she makes the perfect understated wardrobe for everyday moms. Looking to add some "red" spice to your wardrobe without seeing red in your bank account? The new "Utility" bag in Tory Burch's collection is your answer.
