Alexa Chung for Madewell

Alexa Chung is really pushing for the socks + sandals/shoes look this Fall. The models wearing her line for Madewell are repeat offenders in nearly every preview!

I have these shoes on today (in the suede version) (sans socks) and love them. SOooo comfortable.
Cue model on the right---with that poppy red top? Looooooove the sailor buckle belt she's sporting.

Pairing a cute fitted blazer with poppy red shorts-sure! Why not? Just pack some pants should you run into snow or sleet...

Obviously, I'm ready for Fall.

Camel is the new Black

OBSESSED with this look. Too bad this poncho is a trillion dollars. Maybe Alicia and I will get adventurous and make our own.

I also love her HAIR and would LOVE for mine to act like this...I suppose I need to grow it a few more inches to pull it off.

BTW-it is 75 degrees here in Texas right now-cold front city! What is the meaning of this? Is Fall coming early?

Ohhhh just counting down the minutes until the long weekend arrives ;)

September is upon us

Wait...since when was it ok for September to sneak up on us? Did anyone see it coming?! I surely did not.

This morning, as I sipped my coffee and ate my omelet and figs, I carefully turned the pages of the ever-so-beautiful Anthropologie September catalog. Now, remember my opinion on clogs..leave it to Anthropologie to make me doubt my previous stance. If I were to wear clogs, these would be them.

and on fifth ave no less.

In need of chocolate

preferably in this form today.
in an effort to distract myself, I focus in on Pantone's Fall colors again. Let's take a look at...oh what sounds good today...chocolate truffle? I agree!!!
channelling anything: feminine, rich, attitude, moody deep hues.

My mind is still thinking of chocolate (that I can eat).
she looks like she could use some too (and I like the chocolate brown poof on her head!)

Fashion Don'ts

Daily Candy has one lonely male editor named Dan. Over the weekend he gave his opinion on fashion don'ts...or at least those fashion trends that don't do it for guys. A couple of them CRACKED me up and I just had to share...

1) Socks with heels. This one cracks me up because I could be ok with it...especially when Madewell makes it look cute.

2) Raccoon eyes. Well this girl looks terrible, but I am a fan of dark shadow, especially purples. I just try to add highlighter by the brow to tame it down.

3) Denim on denim. Never been a fan of this. Sometimes my roommate makes it look cute with a lighter chambray and darker (even more tailored) jeans on bottom. Overall, the denim tuxedo still scares me..

Oh how I wish I had another Sunday!!!! :(
