I’m not usually a “party-dress” kind of gal, but this one has me swooning. I love simple color palettes and silhouettes that I can change and update as my mood strikes, and this is the perfect blank canvas. (That is probably a credit to the “get the most for your money” voice inside me). Anyway, love this Calvin Klein Collection number… Stay tuned for a post on different ways I would style it!
It would be remiss if I let October go by without posting about ta-tas. As an advocate of pink on the reg, (see blog title…), I can’t help but love all the pink support that comes out during Breast Cancer Awareness month. What can be better than shopping AND helping other people?? Here are some of my favorite products you can purchase this month that will support the fight again breast cancer:
Clockwise from Top Left: Donna Karan Cashmere Eau de Parfum, Keep Calm and Fight On, Essie BCA Collection Polish, COACH leather bag, Movado Special Edition BCA watch, Giuliana Rancic for LOFT necklace, ECHO scarf, and Dannijo BCA bracelet

I wore a fisherman sweater/skirt combo last week, and unfortunately, didn’t snap a pic. However, I’ve been thinking about my ensemble ever since (yes, I do pat myself on the back for an outfit well done)… And luckily, I just got 27 pounds of laundry done, so I can totally recreate it ASAP. Until then, here is some inspiration from some other lovely sources.
And… A fisherman sweater and skirt ensemble in none other than OXBLOOD, courtesy of Blair of Atlantic-Pacific:
One thing to note – if you take on this look, be sure to wear contrasting textures, like in the examples above. A leather, silk, or even lace skirt works best to balance out the chunky knit. Another tip – if you are afraid of losing your shape, add a belt, tuck the sweater into the front, or look for a high-low sweater hem (see example numero uno).
I took it to Polyvore for some more great ways to wear this look:
Michael Kors Fisherman Sweater, Girl by Band of Outsiders Skirt, Linea Pelle Crossbody bag, Seychelles Booties, Raoul Skirt, Maison Martin Margiela bangles, Jil Sander Brogues, Moschino Cheap & Chic Skirt, Alexander Wang Booties, Alexander McQueen Scarf.
What do you think – Have I convinced you this will be a go-to combo for Fall?
My office is freezing. I mean knit hat, thick socks, fisherman sweater, thermal pants, and scarf kind of freezing. I don’t want to give up my dresses for work, so I have been hunting for long-sleeve guys (that I can then layer the aforementioned pieces over… I kid). Here are some of my favorites, almost none of which I can afford… Enjoy 🙂
This started out as a trend report, and quickly changed into an obsession. I’m not in love with the name, but the color is AH-mazing! I painted my nails last night in an oxblood hue, and now I will commence to paint my entire life in this gorgeous color for Fall. See below for some serious style inspiration!
Happy Friday everyone! Now go out and color your life with oxblood….
Fellow fashionistas, do not miss out on Barneys Warehouse Sale! If you don’t have time to scour the pages for items, check out some of my favorites:
And of course every girl’s gotta have a sparkly skirt…
What are your favorites from the sale? Any other items you are craving right now? Tell me in the comments!
These Miu Miu pumps are simply beautiful. They have a great vintage feel to them, while still looking modern with the faceted crystal embellishment. I would kill for these… so don’t cross me with these on your feet (especially if you are a size 6.5!) Just kidding…
