my fall 2011 picks from tory burch

While I was choosing frames for  my prescription glasses the other day, I, like everyone else, tried on at least 20 plus pairs before settling on a Tory Burch designer frames. Since they didn’t actually have a sample of the color I chose, I figured I could get online and see first hand the color I chose blindly. But, instead of finding the actual frames here to get a visual, I found some of my favorite outfits picks. Go figure :)

1. Ackly dress $575
2. doreen dress $495
3. tory tunic $325
4. melinda turtleneck $325
5. simone cardingan $225

fall fashion 2011: black ankle boots

Since finding a nice pair of full length, wide calf boots is really challenging, I have, over the years, grown to appreciate ankle boots even more.  Sure, I walk past the full length boots and feel envious of those who can quickly zip them up, even while stuffing a pair of skinny jeans into them, I  soon forget my woes, when I see that perfect pair of ankle boots to call my very own.

The best part is, this year, ankle boots are in and highly suggested to pair with almost any outfit.  Finally!!!  Anyway, check out some of my favorites from here and tell me what you think?

1. Red Valentino bow embellished sued ankle boots $495
2. Jimmy Choo Alanis leather ankel boots $975
3. Chloe Tucson metal cuffed leather ankle boots $850
4. Givenchy Patent leather cage ankel boots $1550
5. Christian Louboutin belle 100 glossed python ankle boot $1695
6. Michael Kohrs suede and patent leather ankle boots $295

how neutral is your fashion sense?

Don’t get me wrong, I love color, but even though that is the case, I tend to shop for neutrals more so than any other color. I love the sensibility of it, the fact no matter how the industry shifts  from one trend  to another, you can always be sure neutrals are somewhere in there, year after year after year.

So, for that, I have included some of my latest favorite finds from here, which as usual I plan to duplicate this coming fall season:

1.Dress: Michael Kors Double Faced Angora and wool blend dress 1955USD
2.Sweater: Maison Martin Mangiela Wool/Silk blend cardigan 850USD
3.Bag: YSL Envelope Clutch 645
4.Shoes: Miu Miu Crystal Embellished patent leather 620USD
5.Sunglasses: Ilestreva Leonard Round Framed Acetata glasses 165USD
6.Earings: Monica Vinader Mini Luna Almond GP 335USD
7.Bracelet: Philippe Audibert Queens GP beaded cuff 505USD
8.Necklace: Mallarino Dalila 24K vermeil 925USD

zipper frenzy from victoria beckham

I stumbled upon these dresses, from Victoria Beckham,  while shopping here and I must say, she was definitely thinking about her own figure when she designed (or had a say so in designing) these dresses.

They are lovely, very conservative from the front and  a touch of sexy from the back.

What do you think?  Is this something you would consider for your fall wardrobe?

fall 2011 fashion trends – grays and neutrals

You may consider my taste in fashion very conservative and safe, but that wasn’t always the case. In my 20s and 30s I preferred bold colors, minis and all things daring to create my fashion statement. However, while on the other side of 40, I still occasionally dabble with daring, but overall  prefer to stay with the most neutral of colors to make my fashion statement.

With that said, here is another outfit I put together from here, which I plan to duplicate very shortly.
