J Crew Fall 2016

Here we go again, the wacky fashion cycle begins. Winter isn't over yet, I can hardly think about my spring and summer wardrobe, yet I'm looking ahead to fall. There have been some interesting articles lately where some designers are changing the way fashion presents itself to the consumer. I won't rehash it all but the New York Times had an interesting article about it here and Racked had one here 

On to J Crew's fall 2016 line. I haven't shopped there in quite some time. For a period I loved everything they did. They had great basics with lots of unique and whimsical items. Based on what I'm seeing for fall, I may poke my head in there again. Some of my favorite looks are below.

I'm loving the trumpet skirt paired with menswear inspired loafers and chunky knits. I personally don't think I can pull of this whole look but there are bits of it that would work for me (the skirt and the shoes).

One thing I think J Crew has always done well is its outerwear and this navy coat with the gold buttons is no exception.

The varying lengths and layering in this outfit is what does it for me. 

I'm really into this cropped flare silhouette lately and I'm planning to don this type of look come spring when my bare ankles are safe again! I recently bought a super fabulous Michael Kors suit which has trousers with a similar shape and I'm so excited to wear them (video on that here). 

Here's that pant silhouette again but in denim. I've got my eye on a similar pair by 10 Crosby Derek Lam for spring. 

And the PINK! I just love it. I can totally see myself in this color head to toe. But why do I have to wait for fall??!!

DKNY Cape 

Outfit details: DKNY cape (years old but cool tuxedo one here), Splendid turtleneck, Spanx leggings, Chanel flats (similar here), Chanel bag, Moschino bracelet, Oscar de la Renta necklace (amazing one on sale here)

I bought this DKNY cape years ago and loved it ever so much when I got it. Sadly it's sat untouched in my closet for quite some time until I was reminded recently about it. I wore this to work one Friday and I loved hte outfit both for the fact that it looks chic but is also super comfy. I embellished the all black with my Moschino bracelet and Oscar de la Renta necklace, both gifts from my sis.

I'm back from a whirlwind couple of days in NYC for a belated birthday celebration with my girlfriends. It was the most fun! We arrived Friday and had a lovely lunch at a restaurant in the Meatpacking District called Bagatelle. We had decided we wanted to wander around Meatpacking since we hadn't done that in quite a while and did a little research on the train that led us to Bagatelle. We arrived shortly after noon and were the only people in the place at that point. We settled in to a lovely table by the window overlooking the gorgeous dining room. It's all white and modern with ornate chandeliers and splashes of color in the graffiti like art on the walls. Service was attentive, food delicious and we couldn't have asked for a better spot for lunch. We agreed that we'd definitely go back and love to try it for dinner. 

After lunch we wandered into Jeffrey which is a fabulous department store in the neighborhood. They have many of the same high end designers you see at lots of other stores however the way they curate and display sets them apart from any other store. It's a must go if you are in the area and haven't been. After we decided to wander along the high line which I can't believe I had never done before. It's a lovely walk and very cool to see the architecture (old and new) and the buildings in process. 

Friday night we had my birthday dinner at Le Bilbouquet on the Upper East Side. It's a very lively spot that clearly has lots of regular customers. Food and service were both very good and the people watching was even better. 

Saturday we did our usual routine; jaunt through Barney's and Bergdorf Goodman, lunch at Fred's at Barney's, late afternoon cocktails at the King Cole Bar at the St. Regis. We had planned to have dinner at Dirty French Saturday night but it was a late reservation and we were tired from running around and whooping it up the better part of Saturday afternoon. So instead we decided to keep it simple and have dinner at Cellini which is a delicious Italian restaurent across the street from the hotel. And speaking of the hotel, we stayed at the Hotel Elysée. We've stayed there many times before. It has a great location (54th between Madison and Park), they have a lovely light breakfast in the mornings (bagels, toast, fruit, cereal) and most importantly a very nice wine and cheese spread each evening.

Well that just about sums up my weekend. it was a great one!  I hope yours was too.


White in Winter

Outfit details: Tahari jacket, SportMax dress (way old), Anne Fontaine blouse (similar options herehere and here), Valentino shoes, (similar here) Chanel bag

It's hard to believe that this was an outfit that I wore a few days before Christmas. Oh the glory of wearing a fall weight jacket, especially a white one, so far into December. It's now almost mid-January and boy have the tides turned. 

We should talk about this coat by the way. It comes in black and white. The hem can zip off to convert it to a shorter jacket. AND it's on MAJOR sale. Check it out here.

Anyway, sorry for my disappearing act. I have some old outfit photos to get posted plus I know I'm overdue for a video. I'm off to NYC this weekend with friends for a belated birthday celebration so perhaps I'll do a video there.
