A Furry Fall!

One of this season's biggest trends is Fur! You'll be seeing it everywhere and not just the usual fur coats and wraps but as detailing on shoes, purses, and my favorite way to wear this trend a vest! Sure real fur is very beautiful but if you're anti-fur you can still rock this look faux! Faux is also much easier on your wallet. With faux fur I definitely recommend shopping in person rather than online; that way you see the quality and can tell if it is soft and could pass as the real deal! My favorite picks for a faux fur vest are top right: Alice +Olivia'; Micheal; and BB Dakota's available at my store LUXE!  The Micheal Kors and BB Dakota vest are under $150-very chic!

Happy Shopping!

September Issues are here! Fall's Top Trends!

The September issues are here, loaded with all the latest and greatest for Fall. I'm getting excited for pumpkin spice candles and falling leaves already, if only to wear some of the fun new styles in clothing, shoes, and accessories!

Top Trends for Fall:

1) Military-Military inspired clothes, shoes, and accessories will be HUGE this fall! Watch for jackets-one of the best ways to incorporate this trend in my opinion. The cargo that was big this summer (ie J Brand's Houlihan) will still be in this fall with some new twists like a sateen finish. You will also see camo on this fall's accessories. I suggest mixing in camo in a scarf or hat rather than a head to toe boot camp look.

2) Gray-This is a trend I am LOVING! I absolutely love gray shoes and handbags for the fall. It's in all the way down to your finger tips (see my last blog.)

3) Lace-up booties- You will see a ton of variety in lace up shoes. I love these with a cropped pleated dress pant! So chic.

4) Faux fur vests-I love these! I have already bought several different pieces for my store. This is a must-have for the season. Mix this in with your cargo skinnies, and booties-so hot!

5) Over-the-knee boots-We started seeing this last fall but it is in full force this year so definitely grab yourself a pair! I love a mid-heel leather with a tie behind the knee boot, maybe in this season's "it" color gray!

Trends from last Fall to keep:

Faux leather leggings and Plaid.

Will post individual blogs on these trends complete with pictures of my top suggestions soon!

The "IT" Nail Color!

My favorite polish from Spring was Sally Hansen's Commander in Chic and Chanel's Particuliere, both gray and lavender hued looked fresh and trendy! Now for fall I have just ordered Chanel's Paradoxal a shimmery gray and lavender that's neutral enough to look good on everyone and flattering for the fall colors we'll be wearing! Try this shade out today. Free shipping at!
