This past weekend, I celebrated my birthday here in NYC. I felt beyond loved by everyone in my life, and received so many special wishes. Each and every one meant so much. It’s not about material gifts in life that mean so much to me; it’s the people in my life that I cherish the most. They are truly my greatest gift.

While preparing for a hometown visit to Ohio, I went a little sweater crazy, in an attempt to find perfect sweaters for my trip. I’m generally not a sweater girl, so finding styles that I like is usually a challenge.

What do you look for when you go shopping? Is it color, or fit? Maybe you are drawn to your favorite brand. As a designer, and stylist I’m often asked this question. People always ask if I have a specific brand that I love. My answer is always the same. I fall in love with a style, not because of the label, but because of the design details.
Design details, are the intricate trims, buttons, hardware, fabric, or gathers on a piece of clothing that make it unique. These special little details add interest to the style, and often give a fashion forward look. Today, I chose several of my favorite pieces, to show you examples of the details I’ve mentioned.
On of my favorite events during New York Fashion Week, was Vogue’s Runway Retreat event. It was a fabulous networking lounge, which was held at Bar Boulud, right across from the fashion tents at Lincoln Center. At the event, I mingled with fashionistas, bloggers, and the team members of the fashion brands which partnered with Vogue for the event. I sipped on champagne and nibbled on delicious bites, as I learned more about each one of the brands that featured their products at the event.
September has begun, and New York Fashion Week is upon us. While the weather is still warm, I am transitioning my wardrobe from a bright, summer color palette, to beautiful, jeweled toned looks for fall. Black is an easy option when the weather gets cooler, however I live for color.
Last week, on a beautiful summer evening, we were invited to Brahmin’s Wearable Art Party held at Hotel Giraffe’s rooftop in Midtown, Manhattan. Fashion bloggers Grace Atwood, and Jess Ann Kirby hosted the event. Also in attendance were Jessie Artigue, Cara Kovacs, Jessica Sturdy, and Lisa Rosado.
The idea behind the event was to showcase Brahmin’s gorgeous Fall 2014 Collection as wearable art. The handbags were absolutely stunning. They were displayed, as a museum exhibition. The deep, rich colors and textures of the Fall bags were breathtaking. I couldn’t decide which bag I loved best. Colorful, art inspired cocktails were served throughout the evening, as well as delicious hors d’oeuvres.

I hope to give you some style inspiration for your latest and greatest fall accessories. The sale ends Sunday, August 3rd. Happy shopping, Beauties!
