Marc by Marc Jacobs jewelry favorites

Marc by Marc Jacobs is a great label for looking fashionable without breaking the bank. I find the quality good and the shape and design interesting and chic. Accessories are big for fall and these shapes and textures are going to look great with all the fall lines. Here are my favorite things moving forward into fall:

Here they come for Fall 2013 lots of embellishments.  Jury is still out on this for me, but let's mull it over.  A theme in my life is absolutely hating something when I first see it and then wanting it after a few days of mulling it over.  Sometimes it is the things that unsettle us that can bring our style to a new level.  Check it all out: Hate it then mull it. images WWD:

Fur is big for fall--faux, real, what have you. Here are some Fur accessories that are fantastic--p.s.  These would fall into the trendy category and unless you are looking to spend extra money, buy a knock off which will be coming to the Forever 21 near you. Here is the look: all images vogue

Working away..the edit!

Editing a wardrobe is crucial in making your clothing work for you. I tell clients that if something is not serving them then it needs to be stored in a separate space or donated. Life is short and your closet shouldn't be full of things that no longer fit, that are super dated or worn to death. No matter what your price range, you want everything in your closet to be wearable and to work together. The past two weeks I have done edits almost daily.  Nothing makes me happier than walking out with lawn and leaf bags full of things to be consigned and donated.  Not to mention my clients are happy to get a check from the consignment store once their items are sold.  I am on my way now for another edit and I am looking forward to having the space organized, edited and ready for Fall wardrobe! xo

This is the new Proenza bag from Virginia that they were giving away on clearance...I LOVE it! It fits my laptop, camera, everything!xo

Why looking at Runway is helpful

I do not buy things off of the runway, nor do I line up for pre-sale items. I have clients whom I do this for but this is not how I roll. I study/obsess over all of the Fall RTW (ready to wear) and pre-fall for the lines that I love and then I hunt for the shapes, colors and looks for a fairer price. When the Fall clothes do hit stores I will have chosen probably 4-5 things that I will buy that are designer.  The rest will come from the Nordstrom Rack, J Crew, Club Monacco and Zara all day long! Here are some runway looks to look for.  Once the mid-level's come out with the knock off's of all of the shapes, silhouettes and colors I will be all over it and let you know too! Here are some looks from my favorites:

Loeffler Randall Pre Fall bootie...Let the purchasing begin!

I am over buying anything for summer. I am riding out the heat in LA in what I own only.  No more shopping for summer for me.  After ravaging every store having a sale in the D.C. area the past 2 weeks I am forging ahead into fall. Loeffler Randall is one of my favorite labels.  The designs are fashion forward and they are not crazy expense. Check out their pre-fall booties!
