Fine Wine.

Yes, yes I love my wine. However this post isn’t a guzzle my glass social alcoholic kinda post, it’s a I’m a shopaholic kinda post that supports my thirst for wine colored denim, Bordeaux glazed nails, Merlot lips and deep ruby booties.

I need to work overtime to nourish my wine fixation (both).

You can assume jewel tones will be my Fall uniform. What’s going to be your go-to chilly weather style?

I’m feelin the red wine in so many ways… I think it’s those burgundy booties in the last photo that are really speaking to me.

Fashionably Smashed*…(Happy Weekend)

Although I LOVED the warmer fall temps we’ve been having, I recently got acquainted with a new drink, The Cider Smash, which is bourbon and cider (thank you Seyward and Martha), and all of the sudden I started getting this heavy nostalgia for fall! Maybe it’s the gorgeous shade of brown or the spicy and robust flavors and cinnamon, but I’m jonesin’ for some cooler weather and I’m pretty sure this weekend is going to be typically fall’ish!  And nothing says fall like long sweaters, tights, hunter boots, pumpkin colored nails, and fall walks with friends (sipping bourbon of course)…

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces bourbon
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 4 ounces chilled sparkling apple cider
  • Thin red-apple slice
Use a martini shaker and mix it up a little, place apple slices in the bottom of a bourbon glass and pour, divine!

Happy get ‘fashionably smashed’ Weekend!

Go ‘F’ yourself….Faking it 101

(I’m going to get spammed because of that title aren’t I)

I never in a million bazillion years thought I would be tempted to buy faux fur for my wardrobe. Not even after watching 3 seasons of The Rachel Zoe Project, and no one wears/styles fur better than her. However, never say never right? On account of these images my perception of fur has shifted….I die!

I want to be decked out in fur…

I want to cover my head in it, cloak it over my back, wrap it around my collar-bone and trim my favorite Rudsak jacket with it. Faux Fur.

How to wear the faux fur trend:

Minimal – Delicate pieces with light details; trimming or fur collars make for simple features that still make a statement.

Vest Style – Try pairing your vest with tighter, close-fitting shirts to balance its volume. As well loose, peasant-style tops can create a chill, bohemian look.

Accessorize – If you’re hesitant about leaping right into a fur vest or jacket try a dash of detail;  boots, hats, earmuffs, bolero … anything goes.

Faux Fur dont’s:

Overdue it – Covering yourself with head to fur just ain’t cool! Try to only invest in one piece and use it wisely. Disclaimer: my comment under the images was an exaggeration, don’t wear everything at the same time!

Nasty Patterns – Some patterns just aren’t for fur, In my opinion, leopard prints, zebra, or any shapes.

Shoddy Synthetic – Horrible texture and nappy looking furs are a NO, NO..pay attention to this!

Go ‘fur’ yourselves ladies…

Patch Work Love

Waking up to a crisp sunny autumn day will never cease to be one of my most savored things in the world…

I’m covering my elbows in patches and flaunting my amazing new boots to embrace this perfect fall day. Before I know it the sunshine and pumpkin spice lattes will carry me through to 5pm  – then maybe I’ll strut my stuff through a city park and take in the fresh air.

Elbows need lovin too…

This very equestrian meets grandpa look is being used from the classic blazer all the way to chunky knit sweaters and pretty much everything in between.  I love the little sartorial twist my elbow patches on my vintage Gap blazer had to offer today.

If you’re looking to submerge yourself in this classic trend hit up H&M, they have the perfect adaptation of all of the above…

Tease

Today feels like a fabulous summer day. Last weekend was a total tease that fall weather was here and it had us all reaching for cozy sweaters and boots.  Little Miss Summer isn’t going anywhere for a while folks, so put your chunky knits on hold for the next week or so until we can really strut our fall fashion.

Even with the sweating temps I plan on doing a few fall things this weekend.. like sweeping some OPI’s ‘I Brake for Manicures‘ over my nails, looking through mags for fall hair color inspiration, exchanging my summery bedding for some autumn plum shades, sipping wine on the back deck and maybe doing a little fall shopping? Somebody please escort me to a mall this weekend. I don’t like to shop alone….

Fabulous use of chocolate and plum…

She makes me want to paint my hair deep brown and grow my eyebrows to their virgin state..

This image makes me want to say eff this summer leftover weather..bring on fall!

 

What fall things are you going to get a head start on this weekend?

Happy Friday sugar plums!

Fall Fantasy

This weekend I burned the midnight oil sipping wine (yes! that’s an honest statement) and studying. I read, took notes, explored and mused through a stack of new (and thick) September magazines. It was a divine little editorial vacation.

My findings forced me to start a chronicle of all the things I’m lusting over right now for the new season—sequin shorts, oversized blouses, chunky knits, bronze jewelry, high loafers, warmer tones, warmer hair and a hot pair of boots (Frye). Even though the summer temperatures remain warm I can’t help but fantasize over fresh fall pieces from some of my favoured lines.

As I sipped away, I slipped away…into a fall editorial vacation.

If you haven’t already, go fetch the super-glorious-outstanding-tres-thick issue of September In Style…you won’t be disappointed.

Get ready to layer, cozy up and exchange your summer brights for the depths of fall. I can feel the autumn air on my morning jog, it’s just around the bend.
