Fashion Trend Favorites
(plus TWO giveaways! details below)
Fall is finally here! I am in love with the multitude of colors in the changing leaves (which translate so well in this season's fabulous fashions), the briskness of the breeze off the Bay (which makes it much more fun to slip into a cozy fleece jacket) and even the fact that the sun is setting much earlier! Which, of course, means that I can head home after a long day of work, slip into something totally comfy and just relax with a hot cup of soup and Rick Castle. Sigh.
But I digress. The best thing about the changing seasons is being able to change out my closet as well, and fall fashion is my favorite! Snuggly sweaters, cozy cardigans, comfy corduroy and voluptuous velvet — sheer perfection for cold-weather style. It's also a great time to switch out your spring and summer home decor for something a bit more cozy and warm. Luxurious throws, downy duvets and plump throw pillows will add the perfect touch to your autumn decor.
This season I am headed to Kohl's to help me with my seasonal updating. They have a fabulous selection of styles from designers like Vera Wang and Rock & Republic. Also, a little bird told me that starting November 7th Kohl's will be introducing an exquisite new line from designer Narciso Rodriguez! Gorgeous dresses, fabulous outerwear, chic tops and sweaters and the most amazing leggings I have ever seen — you're gonna love it! Another thing I love about Kohl's is the great selections in their home decor department. I recently snapped up a new duvet and pillow cases from Vera Vera Wang to add a bit of autumn chic to my bedroom. And I've got my eye on a set of gorgeous bar stools too!
Check out a few of my faves from the new fall styles at Kohl's, and then enter for a chance to win a $100 Kohl's gift card!
Take a style cue and stay within budget with celebrity and designer apparel such as printed denim and colorblock pieces from Simply Vera Vera Wang, Princess Vera Wang, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. Try getting a little fearless with fashion with the Princess Vera Wang colorblock v-neck sweater.
Print and Pattern
Unexpected floral, snakeskin and houndstooth patterns are just a few ways to incorporate the season's latest trends. For a fresh fall look that transitions seamlessly from day to night, try the LC Lauren Conrad floral fitted blazer.
Be bold this fall with bright accents in brilliant pink, sunny yellow, blaze orange and kelly green. Add a pop of color with the colorful Candie's hi-lo sheer blouse in cotton candy pink.
This autumn, create a chic, welcoming environment for family and friends with new decor must-haves, whether traditional, luxurious or rustic in style. Kohl's has the perfect on-trend decor for any home, such as the SONOMA life + style mercury glass decorative owl. (I love owls!) I also love those kitschy holiday village pieces, which are plentiful and at a fabulous price at Kohl's! Stock up for the holidays on this lovely little item!

Tips From the Hair Doctors at Philip Kingsley
From over-brushing to over-processing, split ends are often the result of what we do to our hair in the name of beauty. Sometimes, the more you do to perfect your look, the more likely you are to end up with a head full of dry, damaged locks split at the ends. While there is no way to actually repair a split end, Elizabeth Cunnane Phillips, trichologist and hair expert at the Philip Kingsley Clinic in New York City, shares how to combat them to leave hair looking healthy and beautiful.
SPLIT END SECRETS
"Due to normal wear and tear, you unfortunately cannot prevent split ends entirely. As they can lead to breakage higher up on the hair shaft, getting regular trims is vital to hair health. Cut ends so that they are uniform and healthy to give hair the appearance of being both thicker and longer. Trimming off half an inch of damaged, split and brittle ends can have a great effect on the hair's appearance," says Phillips.
AVOIDING SPLIT ENDS
Aside from consistent trims, Elizabeth offers the following tips to avoid split ends:
- Always work out knots and tangles with a wide tooth comb starting from the tip and working up to the root of your hair
- Never over dry your hair
- Keep hair moisturized and supple with a weekly pre shampoo conditioning treatment like the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer
| PHILIP KINGSLEY ELASTICIZER
||PHILIP KINGSLEY STRAIGHT HAIR
||PHILIP KINGSLEY SMOOTH CREAM
