Kate Bostworth's Collection for Top Shop


Kate Bosworth has been one of my style icons for several years now.  With her bohemian inspired style, which always seems to appear clean and sleek, she makes getting dressed look effortless.  This is why I was excited to find out she was doing her second collection in collaboration with Top Shop.  While her first collection was designed more towards her bohemian side, this new collections is more sleek and minimal mixing feminine pieces with touches of masculinity, which is so of the moment.  The collection consists of 46 pieces including everything from tops to shoes in a palette of classic black, white and red.  I especially love the red leather pants, the metallic foil tee, and the nude stiletto boots.  Kate's pieces are now available and you can get them at topshop.com.  Take a look and tell me what your favorite pieces are.

The One Product Every Woman (And Man) Should Own


The one product I tell all of the my clients that they need to buy is a streamer.  It was only two years ago that I bought my steamer, and it has changed my life.  Gone are the days of ironing.  Whether it is a cotton dress, silk top, or a pair of jeans that just came out of the wash and were air dried, I use my streamer on everything.  It is very easy to use and takes a third of the time as ironing, and in my opinion, does a better job.  I use mine just about every morning, leaving the house without a wrinkle and so does my husband, as it simple and fast enough for him to use too.  I bought this travel version by ESTEAM because is perfect to pack in my bag when going out of town or to to bring over clients houses.  So go ahead and add one to your wardrobe, it will change your life too, I promise.

You can get the ESTEAM Personal Hand Held Streamer here at Amazon.com

The Slipdress



This past summer I was cleaning out my closet and came across this slip dress from Cynthia Vincent, which I also own in black.  Thinking that the slip dress was long outdated, I was about to throw it into my donate pile when I froze.  For some reason I just couldn't get myself to part with it, and instead I threw it into my pajama drawer thinking it would be perfect to sleep in (which hasn't happened).  Fast forward to the present and realizing that slip dresses are once again fashionable, I couldn't be happier that I kept mine.  They are great paired with boots and leather jackets giving you that 90's grunge feel.  I know I recently said that I am not a huge fan of the grunge look (here), but I thought I would give it a try and show you how I make it fit into my own style.





I added a cashmere cardigan to my dress instead of a leather jacket giving it a softer feel.  I finished the look with gold jewelry and black leather bag and boots to add that slight tough girl edge.





If you're looking for a good slip dress, I recommend Zara, as they have a few on my wish list.  This one below will probably be my next purchase.

Obsession of the Week: Chanel Chain Boots


The second I laid eyes on these boots from Chanel's fall/winter collection, I fell in love. Between the patent leather and chains they scream punk that's super chic.  In my opinion, they are the epitome of cool. 

 Photoed above is the tall version of the boot, below are photos of bloggers sporting the short version

Black, Blue and Plaid




As many of you have probably noticed, the 90's are back in a big way.  Between the comeback of slip dresses and plaid everything (dresses, shirts, pants, coats), channeling Clueless' Cher has never been more fashionable.  I however, have never been a big fan of plaid.  I am more of an 80's girl as the grunge look just is't for me.  Nevertheless, when pumpkin picking with my niece and nephew this weekend, I couldn't think of a more appropriate time to wear plaid.  I bought this one by Joie a couple of years ago and was excited to pull it out of my closet.  With the black and blue color and ruffle details that soften the shirt, it was a plaid that was more me. 



Black and blue, especially navy, are one of my favorite color combinations this fall.  That's what first drew my eye to this plaid shirt.  I finished the look with navy suede booties, a fringe bag, a black (faux) leather jacket, and gold jewelry.






This jacket is from Blank NYC and I love the way it drapes. It is a perfect throw-on for this time of year and a great alternative to buying a real leather jacket. For more on the brand, click here.



If your're looking for a good plaid shirt, I recomend this one by Rails
