Chic Bracelets to give a pop to what you are wearing

Yesterday I saw this glamorous 20-something at Joan's on Third (as my friend and I were hunting for all things home on Melrose and La Cienega)--she was dressed simply and had on a small bracelet that made the whole ensemble pop. Here are some similar bracelets that make a t-shirt, jeans and sandals look super chic.

A few Fall trends coming your way..inspiration to look for

I have vowed to not buy anything else for the summer season and to focus on the upcoming fall season. Fall/Winter clothing is the foundation of the wardrobe.  Typically, depending on where you live, we wear these clothes for months on end and often keep boots, loafers and pumps for years. Which is why it is worth investing in things that will keep. Here are some trends to watch for this fall and when riffling through your fall wardrobe from last year you will know the things to put front and center!

Trend #1: GRAY! This is the new neutral for Fall: From slate to charcoal--all things gray!

Proenza Schouler

Some Gray goodness:

Organic by John Patrick Slouch jacket (pre-order)
Marc by Marc Jacobs Haute Mess rubber link bracelet
Givenchy Grey textured leather Antigona duffle
Gianvito Rosi suede pointed toe Ankle boot

Trend#2: Color blocking--this was in style last year too--look for these bright colors--the deep purple, the royal blue and the orange:

Trend #3: GREEN!!! I love all the green coming for fall. There are loads of different shades coming your way. Also, LOVE the over the knee boots that I am going to unearth from a few seasons ago!

More things to look for: Furry accessories, leather, tuxedo jackets, bold, repeating prints, embellished shoes, chunky cream knit sweaters, animal prints and accessories and much more to come!
