Aqua cashmere sweater (this cut is super flattering because of the kick back on the bottom)

This blouse is the perfect cut and makes everything look chic and polished.  I like it with grey moto jeans and a bootie, pencil skirts and heels, coated jeans in hunter green or oxblood...

A great wedge bootie, a fair price and how to wear

Always on the hunt for clients for a well priced beautifully shaped boot.  Here is one that I LOVE!!! Zappos is such a great place to find exactly what you are looking for. The boot and how to wear:

Nine west zavgy black leather boot

in dark brown too here!

How to wear:

9 west bootie
Maje crewneck chain detail sweater
Mania mania ring
Dior sauvage 56 mm retro black sunglasses
Reed Krakoff bionic track tote
J brand grayson cargo

P.S. There are a few things in this set that are off the hook awesome (I get so excited about fashion). A few clients have purchased these sunglasses and they look fantastic on most everyone! Also, the ring is a really cool style--it all goes on one finger and is super chic. This Maje sweater is insane and I love it! xoxo

Run, don't walk: Madewell and a p.s. from J Brand

I just did a Fall wardrobe shop with a client today and it was a dream!!!  We spent most of our time at Bloomingdales but hit Madewell for a few pieces that she needed to add a pop to all the investment pieces.  Here were my top picks (I bought most of these too--when you see a goodie at Madewell, especially on sale you jump!) Also, FREE SHIPPING! Remember--these look fantastic on--sometimes it is hard to tell from a picture but these cuts are super flattering:

Silk Scallop Peplum TopSilk Scallop Peplum TopSilk Scallop Peplum Top
silk scallop peplum top
p.s. this top looks is much less shinny than it looks

This is my favorite tee of the season--I wear it under everything.  It is in store (I just grabbed loads for clients) but sold out in some sizes on line (call your local Madewell):

Modern Linen Muscle Tee in Heather

This sweater looks so good on with a t-shirt or the top above.  It is super soft and a great cut:

this necklace is so chic on!!!

Linen Brimfield Tee in Colorblock

this cut is perfectly slouchy and long enough to cover the hips

p.s. These pants below are amazing.  They are a perfect cut and look great with everything Fall.  I love all 3 color choices but purchased the olive:

Great date night/go out dress

This is a great party dress from Rebecca Taylor via Bloomingdales I would pair it with a light weight leather moto jacket or a perfectly fitted black tuxedo blazer.  Super chic with a bootie too:

P.S. Obsessed with this coat from French Connection

When I was a teenager I lived in Europe and used to shop at French Connection like crazy. It is super chic, fashion forward and a great price point. This coat is insane and I am going to wear it like crazy especially to Chicago next weekend. I am tempted to pull out the russian mink hat but according to my midwestern peeps, it will not be cold enough to don such a hat...p.s. Extra 30% off sale items on French connection with code W13Sept

Gorgeous sale items--extra 30% off...

Water Flower Draped Dress
water flower draped dress (this is an APC knock off and is gorgeous on in black or the cream)

Moto/bootie hybrid

I am in the market for the perfect moto boot that still has some moto detail, without the squared out toe, masculine look: P.S. I love the first boot with a midi skirt like the one in the lookbook from Zara below:

Here are some that I love and how to wear them:
