The Anna Wintour

Everything- Anna Wintour F 14

Happy Halloween!  If you’re in a rush for a last minute costume, I have the DIY idea.  This look should be given away by the wig itself, but in case you couldn’t tell, this is my version of the Anna Wintour “costume”.  You’ll probably own some or all of the items it takes for this fashionably-memorable costume.  Anna loves cap sleeves, all-over floral prints and pencil dresses.  For accessories, you can’t go without the “Anna Wintour bob” hairstyle- simply created with the help of a blonde wig.   Along with her iconic bob, she’s known for always wearing oversized, dark sunglasses.  A statement necklace is great for channeling your inner Anna Wintour.  Throw on a pair of nude pumps and you’re ready to go.  I hope you all have a wonderful and safe Halloween!

Just one more day until Halloween.  As much as I love orange and costumes, I love going to the pumpkin patch.  On that note, when we arrived at the pumpkin patch the lady looked around and the says “do you have any children?”, I say “No!” and happily go on my way.  Pumpkin patches are not just for kids.  To keep the pumpkin spirit on your mind, I suggest we all wear orange.  It’s a great color on an assortment of skin tones.  This is one of my favorite sweaters because it has so much depth.  The contrast of colors and the fuzzy-soft fabric brings the sweater to life.  Pull out your sweaters, skinny jeans and boots, it’s time for the pumpkin patch.

Do you carve pumpkins for Halloween?

He’s bundled

Everything- He's Bundled F 14

Bundle up DC, it’s about to get cold.  As the temperatures literally drop 30 degrees, I suggest taking out your stored-away winter clothes or head out to shop for layering pieces.  I chose a few of my favorite menswear pieces for the cold.  A wool blazer is a great everyday piece.  You’ll want something that’s stylish but still will block the wind.  For the accessorizing pieces, a chunky knit scarf is trending.  I suggest going for a neutral colored scarf so it can pair with multiple different outfits.  Socks and gloves are a must in the cold.  Keep all your extremities bundled and you’ll stay warmer.  Now, time to get bundled!

What brands do you shop for winter-weather clothing?

Blazer: Hugh & Crye
Scarf: H&M
Socks: Mr. Gray

Halloween crush

Everything- Halloween Crush F 14

I love orange.  With Halloween in full force, I’m melting over the amounts of orange everywhere.  Hues of orange are trending for fall 2014 fashion, as well as interior design trends.  From a mustardy-orange to electric pumpkin orange, the colors are statement making and cool.  Orange is a great versatile color that will coordinate with all neutrals- think black, brown, grey or navy- and works well with other pop colors, such as purple or emerald green.  Add a pop of orange into your wardrobe this week and all through the winter season.

Will you be wearing orange this season?

Make it a couture Halloween

Runway- Couture Halloween F 14

Halloween is just days away and I am inspired by couture Fall 2014 collections for a unique take on a costume.  Think elaborate, bold and chic. If you couldn’t tell, white is the trending theme for my inspiration.  I invision the Oscar Carvallo look being transformed into a high-fashion eskimo (left).  The collar and sheer draped fabric give the look the volume that an eskimo’s clothing has.  Add in a white fur hat and long white gloves for the complete look.  Serkan Cura‘s look is nothing shy of a couture swan (right).  The delicate layers of fabric resemble feathers while the fanned out neckline looks like wings.  Up the drama even more with dark black makeup and a sleeked back hairstyle.  Steer away from the traditional costumes this year and look to the runways for inspiration.

It’s a ring thing

Everything- It's a ring thing F 14

With the sleeves of shirts getting longer, it’s important to change up your accessories from statement cuffs to fashion-worthy rings.  Rings are my favorite accessory.  From a statement ring to a stack of mixed metals, to ring trend is bold and unique.  It’s all in the added details that make the ring command a statement for your look.  I chose a few of my favorite rings out right now, each with their own sense of character.  Stuck up your rings this seasons.
