Fall Fashion Faves

Does this sound familiar to you? Your birthday rolls around. There is much anticipation, much festivity, too much cake and a wonderful stack of cheerfully wrapped presents all just for you. You smile, you laugh, you eat, you drink, you party with your posse and wave goodbye to yet another year. Then, before you know it, your birthday rolls around again! And they just keep coming, faster and faster till it seems the years are zipping by fast enough to give a girl whiplash!

Anyhoo, the point is that although I love a good party, and I adore cheerfully wrapped gifts, I honestly think I am allergic to the actual passage of time. Seriously! Every time I even think about moving up the age ladder I start sneezing and break out in hives! Which does absolutely nothing for my complexion I might add, and I really hate it when I go all red and blotchy. But I digress…

Therefore, in anticipation of yet another birthday, I have decided to take precautionary measures to stave off the sneezing/itching/blotchy skin effects of said birthday. My Relaxation Therapist (Girly) has suggested that first and foremost I must, of course, relax. And to help me with said relaxation she gave me an early birthday present! This adorable warmer from Scentsy, and an entire brick of my favorite scent. Ahh, the perfect way to unwind! So now that my entire house is filled with exquisite fragrance and I am feeling oh-so-calm, it's time to get down to the serious business of birthday wishes! It's a proven fact that if you make your birthday wishes well before your birthday, you have a much higher chance of said birthday wishes actually coming true (especially if you drop not-so-veiled hints regarding the retail specifics of such, i.e. what and where to purchase!)

Birthday Wishes

Embellished Sweater. This is a look I just adore. A simple, soft sweater with a gorgeously glam bow. I also love a jewel encrusted neckline, tastefully done of course. Embellished sweaters look fabulous with skinny indigo denim jeans and a pair of killer skyscrapers. They also give a little style boost to a pencil skirt, tights and Mary Janes!

Chic Work Handbag. This is a tough one. Handbags are such a personal purchase, and everyone has their own specific requirements in a handbag. So that's why I am offering a couple of really stylish options, which fit the bill for me, in the hopes that someone out there will get me one of them! I love this drawstring bag from Michael Kors because it has outside pockets and a thick strap, not to mention gorgeously supple leather. I also think this rich leather satchel from Francesco Biasia is ideal as a work bag — it is large enough to hold everything I need for a day at the office, and it has a detachable cross-body strap as well as braided handles which work as a drawstring as well. Clever as well as stylish! And for a really unique bag, I just love the Campo bag from J. Crew, with it's sleek oiled leather finish which gets more beautiful the more you use it.

Girly dress. I'm all over this trend. I love the fact that feminine is in for fall! It's the details that make the difference: exquisite fabrics, chiffons and silk jacquards, ruffles and pleats, lace and satin. So many gorgeous choices! Especially when worn with a great pair of skyscrapers, a sexy little handbag and an elegantly simple bracelet.

Chunky Heels. I know, I know, I'm usually all about skyscrapers and stilettos, but after my little subway grate episode in NYC during Fashion Week (snapped the heel right off my new suede Tods pumps. Grrrr!) I am embracing heels with a little more substance this fall. I love these exquisite suede cutout heels from Loeffler Randall. Can't you just picture them with a pair of opaque tights and a gorgeous sweater dress? Absolutely divine! Or perhaps these sleek metallic peep toes? Paired with bootcut jeans and a dressy top and you've got a great date look.

Knit Jacket. So chic and cozy, as well as stylish! A great alternative to a coat or structured jacket. I really love this oversize sweatercoat style which will look so perfect with jeans and a turtleneck for weekend wear. And this long wrap is ideal for the office. But I think this belted bomber is my all time fave!

Well girls, looks like I've made more than a few birthday wishes here! Now it's just a matter of dropping a few not-so-subtle hints in the proper direction, and maybe just maybe I'll get one of these gorgeous little items in my stack of cheerfully wrapped gifts!!!

Ta ta darlings!

MBT

The Morning After Shoe

The holidays are fast approaching and with them the requisite holiday parties. Which means that while you're dancing the night away in stylish stilettos and über-haute heels, your soles will be screaming the morning after when feet are so swollen you can barely squeeze them into your fluffy slippers. Not to mention the long term negative side effects including back problems, weakening of the ankles, and fading of the glutes. 

Take a load off and start the healing process the very next day in a pair of morning after shoes that will literally rock your feet back to health and comfort — the functional footwear known the world-over as MBT. Inspired by the way the Masai of Kenya walk, MBT stands for Masai Barefoot Technology, the revolutionary technology used in the shoes that enables the body to stand and walk in the way intended by nature. MBT offers proven stress relief to the knee and hip joints, and strengthens and tones leg, abdominal and buttocks muscles using proprietary technology that mimics the effect of walking barefoot on uneven terrain. MBT is the first physiological footwear and is patented worldwide

I recently got this stylish pair of MBT ankle boots, which I absolutely adore! Not only do they look fantastic with jeans, sweater and leather jacket, but they really give my calves a great workout when I wear them while out running errands. They are definitely going to become my go-to shoe for all those long hours of holiday shopping, not to mention for post party morning-after wear. And I can finally say goodbye to my post-stiletto aching back!

SpaRitual’s NEW Mind.Body.Spirit Matte Collection

I am all over this trend girls! I snapped up three bottles of SpaRitual's newest matte finish nail polish, just to give it a whirl. I've got to say that it took a bit of getting used to. When I first painted my nails with this gorgeous champagne-hued Mind, I fell in love with the delicate color. Then it dried. To a matte finish!!! Completely different look and feel, but I fell in love with it all over again! Next, I tried Spirit on my tootsies — I can't begin to describe how gorgeous it looks, especially in a pair of suede peep-toes!

Put your Mind at ease with matte champagne

Give your Body an edgy boost with matte black

Let your Spirit soar to new levels with matte purple

Practicing a philosophy that a beautiful environment inspires beauty, SpaRitual Nail Lacquers and Elixirs are Vegan and are free of DBP, toluene and formaldehyde.

The SpaRitual Mind.Body.Spirit Collection will be available starting October 2009 for $10.00 each at fine salons and spas such as Spa Halekulani, Canyon Ranch, and the Mandarin Oriental.
