Thanksgiving travels

Everything- Thanksgiving travels W 14

This afternoon, I’m jumping a flight home to California for Thanksgiving.  The mix of weather between DC and California are two totally different worlds.  When traveling to different climates, you can still bundle up in fall fashion without being overly layered.  Accessories are you go-to pieces for creating your look.  A floppy wool hat is the accessory of the season, head nod to Pharrell wearing the Vivienne Westwood hat.  Fingerless gloves are another great way to feel fall-festive.  I personally prefer fingerless gloves, so I can still be on my phone and functioning.  Lastly, skip the go-to black boots and try a light tan bootie.  This look is refreshing and great for creating a soft fall color palette.  Change up your fall fashion while I change up my climates.  More to come from California.

What’s your favorite fall accessory? 

Wool Hat: Shiraleah
Fingerless Gloves: Lauren Ralph Lauren
Booties: Loeffler Randall

Sass & Bide

Runway- Sass and Bide F 14

Bring on the drama.  Sass & Bide‘s Fall 2014 collection makes me melt.  The collection is for the woman who loves minimalism and drama bottled up into one.  The silhouettes are exaggerated with cape-like crop tops and flowing high-low skirts.  I loving the intensity and sleek vibe the contrasts of prints give each look.  They command your attention while still keeping the look simple and effortless.  Channel your inner Sass & Bide style this Thanksgiving and sign me up for the print-blocked skirt please!

Which Sass & Bide look is your favorite?

Hats off to you

Everything- Hats off to you F 14

My current mood is channeling everything textured.  I love the depth in fur pieces.  Usually you won’t find me wearing a hat but I’m kind of obsessed.  The shearling hats are a great way to merge a masculine feel into your outfit.  I love the rich colors and prints available in shearling hats this season.  This bucket style, skull cap hat is also adorable.  It has a very British feel, as if you’ll be walking down the streets in London or guarding the Queen outside Buckingham Palace.  If you’re not a hat-girl, trying infusing some texture into your look with fur gloves.  Now, let’s bundle up in this cold in some furry textures.

Would you wear any fur pieces?

Put a little Rocksbox in it


Yay for Rocksbox!  I recently stumbled over a “jewelry at your doorstep” service.  Enough said, right?  My first box came in this week and to my surprise, I’m actually loving each piece.  I was skeptical at first with me being a stylist and giving someone else the reins on picking out my jewelry, good work team.  I love a statement piece of jewelry that can be accompanied by a few minimalistic pieces.  These statement earrings were the perfect pop to my black on black on black look.  They’re glamorous and the black stones are just the right amount of edge.  This bangle was my perfect idea of minimalistic and edgy merged into one.  Mix and match your jewelry pieces for just the right polishing touch to your outfit.

Would you try a jewelry delivery service?

Runway- Y-3 M F 14

Baby, it’s cold outside!  When they say there’s an arctic storm coming down, they really mean it.  With that being said, it’s essential to have the correct layering pieces ready for all weather conditions.  Y-3‘s Fall 2014 collection has great trench-like jackets.  I love the length of these jackets, they’re functional and fashion-forward.  I’m also loving the militaristic vibe going on with the green, blue and black fabrics.  The piping, oversized pockets and contrasting linings really give each coat its own personality.  Bundle up and take inspiration from Y-3’s military style jackets for this cold winter weather.

What’s your go-to winter jacket?

The cape

Everything- The Cape F 14

The cape.  Simply put, I need one.  I love the play on the eyes of the unexpected details within a cape.  As billowing and simple as a cape may look, it’s all about the right details that make the look work.  There are a few must-have cape styles this season: shall cape, coat cape and the modern cape.  The shall cape looks like a wrap or shall, draping around the body and is typically in a knit or wool fabric.  For the coat cape, you’ll see a variety of this style with prints, buckles, buttons and hoods.  This is the best version of the cape for warmth and everyday versatility.  Lastly, the modern cape is all about the drama.  Think Superman turned high-fashion.  This cape is typically more structured at the shoulders with a elongated arm slit.  No matter what your style is, there’s a cape to be worn.

Which cape is your favorite style?

Shall Cape: Burberry London 
Modern Cape: Zara
