Book This Look- Molly Sims

Granted this summer was all about the short-ish dress...long dresses also made an appearance. Though they did not hit the stores en masse this year, I predict that next year we will all be able to throw away our razors: no more short dresses!! Well at least I hope so... ;)

BOOK THIS LOOK- Jennifer Lopez

This outfit is so simple. She avoids the waiter at a 4 star hotel look by keeping the vest open and combining the look with some high waisted wide leg pants.
TIP: (for those with short legs like me)
To avoid looking stocky, make sure to keep the pants long (ie they pretty much touch the ground) and be sure to wear heels (whether it be a stacked pump or even an high heeled boot)

Vest- RW & Co. $58.00
Dark Denim (wide leg) Jeans- Parasuco $110.00
White Shirt- Jacob $38.00

Jean Paul Gaulthier and the Simpsons

2 key fall trends (plaid and trenches) are shown here. The prerequisite Hermes bag is just icing on the Ready To Wear cake.

Book This Look- Lauren Conrad

The gold sequins are in line with Fall's trend of all that is shiny. The dress says it all so keep the rest of accessories (even makeup) to a minimum. May I also suggest wearing it only at night because on a sunny day...this will literally stop may blind people with the reflection (but at least you will look great!)

Eggstatic about Eggplant

If you are a magazine fiend (as I am) you have undoubtedly noticed the overwhelming abundance of all that is grey for fall with the played out “grey is the new black” subtitle. I am so over it...

I don’t know about you, but I am craving color…dark rich color for fall. The timing for eggplant's emergence could not have been more impeccable.

Sweaters, blouses, t-shirts and even shoes are popping up in this non-eggressive shade.

Here are a few ideas on how to wear this egguberant color:

Pair a blouse with some dark denim jeans and silver belt for an eggseptional look

Surpass everyone’s eggspectations by wearing an embellished eggplant top

Eggsude confidence with plaid eggplant pants or pencil skirt.
