Ten Most Wearable
Trends for Fall
It's my favorite time of the year again! I just love it when the weather turns brisk and the autumn colors fill the trees in the park, because it can only mean one thing: Fall Fashion Week! With all the hustle and bustle surrounding Lincoln Center this week and New York Fashion Week right upon us it's a sure thing that fashionistas everywhere are thinking Spring 2012. Colors, trends and fabrics, shoes, accessories and swim wear for the spring and summer seasons are foremost in our minds, which is as it should be. But with the autumn leaves starting to change color and the weather beginning to turn just a bit nippy, we She She girls want to share a little Fall Fashion Redux, with an update on this Fall's Top Ten Most Wearable Trends.
Mid-calf skirts. I, for one, am thrilled to see this trend on the scene for fall. I just adore the chic look of a sleek mid-calf skirt paired with a cropped sweater or jacket and boots for fall. The trend runs from slim pencil-style skirts to flirty layers with a bit of a bohemian edge. Maxi skirts are also on the radar for fall, especially paired with slouchy sweaters and ankle boots.
Tie-neck blouses. A menswear trend that has been girlified to absolute perfection. Soft, silky flowing fabrics in colorful prints and patterns abound. Looks fab with the aforementioned mid-calf skirt. Also, I love the look of a silky tie-neck top belted over slim fitting jeans and topped with a menswear blazer.
Bellbottom jeans. Flash back to the 80's ladies because bellbottoms are back! I prefer to call them flared jeans because the word "bellbottom" just brings back too many bad memories of middle school and my somewhat potato-shaped phase and the moniker I was saddled with (which had absolutely nothing to do with denim and everything to do with my derriere). Anyhoo, flared jeans in all colors and washes are hot for fall. Faded, distressed and worn, crisp indigo and even basic black. Flared jeans look great when worn with a slim fitting top or sweater, a long pendant and chunky heeled boots. They also look great with a peasant-style blouse topped with another fall trend, the faux fur vest.
Faux Fur: A great trend for fall especially when the weather turns brisk. There are so many options with faux fur, from coats and jackets to vests and scarfs. Even boots and handbags trimmed with faux fur! I just love this blocked vest with cableknit trim from the Buckle. I also adore this edgy reversible style vest from bebe.com. Would look amazing with a sparkly tank and velvet skinnies! And the best part is that you can enjoy to warm and comfort — completely guilt free!
Chunky Heeled Boots. Wet and snowy weather is a nightmare in stilettos so I am thrilled that this fall's boots have a nice stable heel. I love stacked heels especially in boots. So many styles and treatments from sleek leather to nubby suede to fabulous fur-lined boots, you're sure to find something that strikes your fancy. And check out these amazing rubber heeled boots from Michael Kors — love!
Rich spicy tones. Colors like persimmon and mustard, aubergine and toffee, jade green and saffron, this fall's color trend is as rich as an ethnic spice market.
Two-tone handbags. The look of two-toned hued bags is very on-trend this season. This look is also an attention grabber, so it’s best paired with basic and neutral colors so that it can be the vocal point in your outfit. You'll find this trend in all styles of handbags from totes and satchels to clutches and mini's.
Polka dots. When you see several major designers put the same print out on the runway, then you know it’s a definite trend in the making. Not quite ready to embrace the whole head-to-toe look? Try a polka-dot blouse or scarf, even a sassy pair of shoes to put a playful spin on your ensemble.
Capes and Poncho. Seen all over the runways for Fall 2011, ponchos and capes have really come into their own. Think Stylish Snuggie. Seriously, I love being able to wrap up in my latest acquisition. Not only does it broadcast style in a nanosecond, it also keeps me toasty warm! Which also means that my wool coat from 2009 can take the season off! There are so many great looks and styles for any budget as well. From a super chic cashmere to an affordably adorable pointelle, ponchos are the way to go this fall.
Peplum tops, jackets and coats. This whittle-in-the-middle trend gives a graceful silhouette to fall's fashions. Keep the layer beneath sleek and fitted — tissue tee or turtleneck and jeggings or slim fitting trousers and/or pencil skirts.
Well you darling girls, this should give you a little something to ponder while ramping up for Fashion Week!

End of Summer Book Giveaway!
The last few weekends of the summer are often spent poolside living out one final summer’s resolution: to read a fabulous novel. My pick for end of summer reading - In Seconds by New York Times bestselling author Brenda Novak.
Brenda Novak's latest fashionable tale, In Seconds, is about a handbag accessories designer, Laurel Hodges, who’s on the run…for her life. In the whole state of Montana, there's nowhere to hide. Laurel has changed her identity twice, trying to outdistance the men who blame her for the death of one of their own. She's finally found the peace and stability she needs in the small town of Pineview, Montana. But just when she thinks she’s safe — the nightmare starts all over again. The Crew, a ruthless prison gang with ties to Laurel's brother, will never forget and they'll never forgive. And now that they've finally found her again, they'll stop at nothing. It could all end in seconds. In Seconds ($7.99 USD) available now wherever books are sold and on www.BrendaNovak.com
So how about a nice autographed copy? Well darling girls, you are in luck because Brenda just happens to be a friend of mine and has kindly offered autographed copies of her book to some very lucky She She girls!! A little about Brenda — It was a shocking experience that jump-started Brenda Novak’s bestselling author career.
“I caught my day-care provider drugging my children with cough syrup and Tylenol to get them to sleep while I was away,” Brenda says. “It was then that I decided that I needed to do something from home.”
“When I first got the idea to become a novelist, it took me five years to teach myself the craft and finish my first book,” Brenda admits. “I learned how to write by reading what others have written. The best advice for any would-be author: read, read, read….”
Brenda sold her first book, and the rest is history. Many of her novels have won or placed in contests such as the National Reader's Choice, the Bookseller's Best, the Write Touch, the Award of Excellence and the Beacon Award for Published Authors.
Enter Here for your chance to win an autographed copy of Brenda's latest novel, In Seconds. Enter "IN SECONDS" in the subject line and be sure to include your contact information.

LUSH Goes Dental!
While peppermint toothpaste might be the norm, here at LUSH we challenge what’s expected and encourage our customers to think about the impacts of their beauty routine on the environment. Enter Toothy Tabs, LUSH’s newest invention that takes conventional toothpaste and literally strips it down.
Toothy Tabs are a brand new, patented idea from LUSH, these solid tabs eradicate the need for both packaging and preservatives, and come in a handy 100% recycled box. Each pack contains 40 tabs, you simply pop one in your mouth and crunch it up with your teeth. Then take a wet toothbrush, brush for three minutes and rinse.
Toothy Tabs come in six fabulous flavours and feature the most beautiful natural ingredients and essential oils to freshen and perfume the breath, but also have antiseptic qualities used for years in dentistry. Only fresh, natural ingredients are used to clean the teeth beautifully, but each Toothy Tab offers something different – from a mouth freshener to a palate cleanser.
Autopalm Moisturizing Cleansing Wipes
Cleanse and moisturize your skin with one perfect wipe. Dense, luxurious Atopalm Wipes remove face makeup while leaving skin feeling soft, supple and drenched in moisture. Each dermatologist approved wipe features a gentle yet effective blend of protective Vitamin E, calming Allantoin, soothing Portulaca Oleracea Extract and Olive, Grape Seed and Jojoba Seed oils for deep hydration. The result? Clean, hydrated skin, free from blemish-causing build-up — no water needed. Formulated specifically for dry, sensitive and sun damaged skin, Atopalm wipes feature paraben-free, plant derived ingredients that mimic the structure of natural skin lipids to restore the skin’s protective moisture barrier system.
This USA patented MLE technology is used in the entire Atopalm line. As with the other products, the unique wipes offer calming relief from irritation. I love the fact that these wipes snap shut to ensure the wipes don’t dry out, which makes them the perfect travel companion.
Sun and surf can leave your skin dull and dry, but Hugo Naturals Massage & Body Oil is the perfect solution to hydrate and renew skin as you move from summer into fall. These luxurious, blended oils restore moisture when your skin needs some extra TLC, and are available in five, amazing, scents.
It’s no secret that hair takes a beating as the temperatures rise. Sun, salt and chlorine are hard to avoid and can leave strands dry and damaged as we approach the fall season. Turn to the Ouidad 12 Minute Deep Treatment to restore and hydrate your locks. In just 12 minutes, your strands will look soft, supple and most of all, hydrated.
