Backlogged

Zara top and pants, Ella Moss jacket, Stuart Weitzman shoes, Celine bag, Hermes scarf and bangle, Chanel necklace

This was an outfit from awhile ago that I had never posted.  I finally decided to post it today since what I actually wore for today's rainy, windy day + long workday was blah blah blah.  So happy we're closer to the end of the week!

Black and White

Zara jacket, Tara Jarmon dress, Rachel Zoe for QVC necklace, Stella McCartney bag, Prada shoes, Hermes bangle

One of last week's outfits was a bit of a rule breaker.  White jacket from Zara after Labor Day?  Why not?!  I always think of Kenickie from Grease.  "The rules are, there ain't no rules". 

I paired the white jacket with a seasonless Tara Jarmon dress that I've had for years.

Fall Wishlist (and a Giveaway!)

I often find myself browsing websites for inspiration and Farfetch is chock full of droolworthy goodies.  They carry loads of designer shoes, clothes, jewelry and accessories from a bevy of boutiques all over the world.  Here are a few things that caught my eye.

Philip Lim peacoat

This Philip Lim peacoat is a fabulous fall into early winter jacket and the zipper details are perfection.

Alexander McQueen military jacket

I love a military jacket and the red detailing on this Alexander McQueen version gives it a bit of extra oomph.

Lanvin cocoon coat

I can envision hibernating in this ever so chic Lanvin cocoon coat.

Lanvin buckle wedge boot

A Lanvin wedge bootie such as this in a bright red is the perfect pop of color for winter neutrals.

Alexander McQueen bolero dress

Every gal needs a holiday dress and I think a red Alexander McQueen dress would do the trick.

And finally for the giveaway...

Fiona Paxton earrings

The folks at Farfetch have kindly sent me these gorgeous designer earrings by Fiona Paxton.  These earrings will give a little funk and edge to any outfit and one of my darling blog readers will be lucky enough to have them for her own.  All you have to do is leave a comment below with your favorite lustworthy item from Farfetch and on Friday October 21, I'll announce the lucky winner.

Dots on Dots

Milly jacket, J Crew blouse, J Brand jeans, Celine bag, Roger Vivier flats

It's funny how in retrospect, I can see the themes in what I wear.  This was the second outfit last week where I wore polka dots (the other dot day here).  I love this navy and white polka dot blouse from J Crew and it's perfectly suited for this Milly jacket.

Since there was a chill in the air, I added a tissue thin dotted cashmere scarf from Elisha Daniels' shop.

Polka Dots and Strong Shoulders

Zara top, Sara Campbell skirt, Miu Miu booties, Chanel necklace

For my fun evening out at the Nespresso dinner (post here) I wore mostly black; unusual for me I know.  But the black Zara top I wore had those strong shoulders that I do so love a la Balmain or Vanessa Bruno  (especially at the Zara price point).  Plus I added the polka dot "trend".  Polka dots (like animal prints) are things that I always have in rotation whether they are in or out.

Zara jacket, Stella McCartney bag

I picked up this faux leather sleeved jacket from Zara which is just so Helmut Lang.  And I would be remiss not to give props to these fabulous sculpted heel booties from Miu Miu.  You might not believe me when I tell you this, but I pranced about in these 5 inchers all day yesterday and they were really quite comfortable. 

Hope you've all had a great week!  What's on tap for the weekend?  I'm just looking forward to a couple of days of not working. 

 

Thanks to Jaime for snapping the photo above for me at the Nespresso event.
