Sneak Peek! Versace for H&M Ads Released

With all the commotion surrounding Missoni for Target, I almost forgot about Versace for H&M. I was about to go to bed, and just saw that the ad campaign pics are out. This is going to be so awesome, enjoy the sneak peek!

Fall Style - Riding Boots

Channel you inner equestrian and pick up some riding boots this fall. I especially love riding boots in tan/cognac color. Riding boots are perfect for keeping your feet dry on rainy/snowy days, and keeping your feet warm on colder days. Check out my picks below:

Piperlime - Steve Madden Foreway
Originally $130, On sale for $109.50

If you're not familiar with Piperlime, it's an offshoot of Old Navy/GAP/Banana Republic. They carry everything from shoes to clothing to handbags. These boots are a Rachel Zoe pick and come in black and tan. At the sale price, you can afford to get both colors! Plus, Steve Madden is a great brand. I love all my SM shoes.

Target - Merona Kasia Tall Genuine Leather Boot

These boots are only available online, and I think they're a great price considering that they're genuine leather. In fact, they're such a great deal that I think I'm going to get a pair for myself. A lot of the reviewers mention that the boots are often mistaken for the Frye Melissa Button boots, which are over $300 at Nordstrom. I definitely think they look similar. - Anne Klein - Craslee

This Anne Klein boot comes in cognac, my favorite color for riding boots. I love the gold hardware and that it is genuine leather. This boots also comes in black and brown.

Fall Style - Tights!

The leaves are starting to change color, the weather is getting cooler, and everyone is back in school... Fall has arrived! The best part about moving from the south to the northeast is that I get to experience seasons now, which also means I get to expand my wardrobe. My style is a little more Eskimo-esque in the winter, but in the fall I can wear cute skirts with tights and boots. This post is dedicated to tights. Check back for the boots edition.

Patterned Tights

Right now I'm loving the textured tights out there. I bought a few pairs at Uniqlo. If you're ever in NYC or Japan, you must check out Uniqlo. It's often called the "Japanese GAP," and it's the perfect store to stock up on the basics. In fact, GAP has some zig-zag and diamond patterned tights on sale.

Colored Tights

I've seen a lot of jeans this summer, but before it gets too cold, stock up on some colored tights. They're fun and a great way to incorporate some color into your wardrobe. Of course American Apparel has tights in every color imaginable for only $14.

Sweater Tights

Sweater tights are so fun because they're like sweaters, but not. They're warm and not itchy like some other tights. They can be cable knit or patterned. You can also get these in other colors too. In fact Macy's has them in five different colors! Plus, they're having a "buy more, save more" sale where you get a discount if you buy two pairs.

Alexander McQueen - Savage Beauty

The Alexander McQueen - Savage Beauty exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC is the most amazing exhibit I've ever seen. After waiting in the long lines, you are instantly transported to McQueen's world when you enter the exhibit. I always knew McQueen was a genius, but you realize just how much method there was to his madness when you see all the collections and pieces assembled together.

Some of my favorite pieces:

Karl Lagerfeld For Macy's

I just posted about the Missoni for Target line, and I have to let you all know about the Karl Lagerfeld line for Macy's. The dress above is my favorite from the line. I can't wait to try it on at the store. The Lagerfeld line will be available at Macy's stores and online August 31st.

More of the collection:

Missoni For Target

I'm a huge fan of the designer collaborations for Target, and I cannot wait for the Missoni line this fall. How cute is this outfit? The Missoni line will be available in Target stores and online on Sept. 13th. Now, if only Marc Jacobs would design a line for Target... I'd be in heaven!

Deep In The Heart Of Texas

I recently accepted a new job in DC, so my days in Texas are numbered. While I'm sad to leave my home state, I'm excited about moving to a new city, starting a new job, and making new friends. I love Texas and I hope to keep it near to my heart with an awesome Maya Brenner necklace. Eva Longoria and Jessica Simpson have the Texas necklace while California gurl Katy Perry sports the California one. I've even seen Snooki wear it on Jersey Shore.

The Comeback

Well, it's been just over a year since I've updated this little blog of mine, but I have traveled to Japan and California, and now I'm totally inspired! I hope I can keep up with this from now on and I hope someone out there reads this!
