Pumpkin Patch

I love all of the different activities that precede a holiday and become a tradition. Whether you celebrate Harvest, Halloween, and or Thanksgiving, fall festivities call for pumpkins. My pick is to hit the pumpkin patches in plaid; I love holidays and festivities are my favorite part. This past weekend I had the opportunity to visit Tanaka Farms, an actual working farm with veggies, tractors, corn mazes, and of course pumpkins. I opted for a white pumpkin as they are a chic "ghostly" alternative to the traditional orange pumpkin. But not to worry, I also selected a traditional bright orange pumpkin as well. I hope you enjoy this weeks wardrobe highlights in addition to your holiday!
Remember to be sassy, savvy, and safe this weekend!

Sweater Weather

As temperatures slowly drop and leaves begin to change colors, outerwear becomes a focus.That in between seasonal period prior to winter is often fondly referred to as "sweater weather". Let's face it, the idea of warm, fluffy, and cozy garments are what fall is all about. With that in mind, I wanted to highlight a few sassy sweaters I have "fallin" for this season.

1. A classic cardigan is a wardrobe staple and makes a great companion. This knit cardigan is a versatile multi-tasking piece!
2. Decorative sweaters are ideal for crisp nights out on the town.
3. A classic pull over sweater is great with a pair of jeggings and a statement necklace. What I like to call the sassy fall uniform.
4. Take a savvy approach to fall styling and layer with a sweater vest/wrap sweater.
5. This cable knit sweater dress is the best of both worlds as this is also a turtle neck. Combining two on trend aspects in one quick change. This is an instant outfit just add a pair of sassy boots.

I hope these "sweater weather" styling highlights and tips come in handy this season.

Which sweater have you "fallin" for?

Piperlime Moments Of Chic

You cannot imagine the level of excitement I felt when I was asked to partner with Piperlime for their Moments of Chic campaign!
I opted to style a few of Piperlime's newest pieces with fall classics. A large brim hat and booties are a perfect fit when it comes to fall accessories.
I am thrilled that we are finally seeing a few overcast days and slightly cooler weather. This light weight v-neck sweater is the perfect fit for the transitional period between not quite summer and not exactly heavy sweater weather; that Southern California is known for. 
The sassy and savvy focal point of this look is the DVF flirty statement skirt.
Dinae Von Furestunberg's patterns are iconic and truly make a sassy statement that sets her pieces apart.

Day To Night At The W

| Wardrobe Details |
Dress:BCBG | Clutch:Claire Vivier | Shoes:Dolce Vita, Similar

  In conjunction with L.A. Fashion Week, on Friday, October 10th, I  attended the "Day to night" event at the W Hotel. The event truly was day to night for me, as I was invited to participate in a pre-show interview with Geneveive Cruz, the creative director of Sea of Pearls L.A.
 One of the many sassy things I learned from my time with Geneveive and her team, is that a Sea of Pearls luxury basic is anything but basic. The Sea of Peals garments are all made of  extremely soft micro moadal jersey in Los Angeles. The lines T- shirts are available in a variety of styles that are representative of the diversity found within the city. The pieces transition effortlessly from day to night and my new favorite go to t-shirt has just been found in a  sassy sea of pearls!

Shopping For A Cause:Breast Cancer Awareness

It is October and that means it is time to think pink! 
October is breast cancer awareness month and many designers and brands are taking part in the cause to increase awareness and to find a cure all month (and year) long.
I am notoriously not a huge fan of the color pink; the month of October is the one exception. Shopping for a cause is such a savvy way to increase awareness and contribute to finding a cure for breast cancer.

Chagoury Couture

 Last week I was given a unique opportunity to attend the third installment of "Get Chic With Chagoury". The event was held at the Los Angeles boutique, where I had the pleasure of meeting Gilbert Chagoury. He began his successful design career at the house of Christian Dior in Paris, maybe you've heard of them?  Since he has ventured out on his own creating his self named line that caters to a high end and celebrity clientele. His celebrity client roster includes Eva Longoria, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry, Lisa Vanderpump, and Rhianna to name a to name a few. Driven by the passion to dress what Chagoury refers to as the "every day woman" the designer has recently ventured into ready wear clothing. His current collection of ready to wear pieces can be found at his boutique located at: 8378 Melrose Ave. Los Angeles, Ca 90069.

Code Red

This week I have styled a feminine skirt with unexpected traditionally masculine pieces. I simply cannot get enough of chambray button downs and loafers are classic and comfy. The seasons have officially changed however; the weather shows no signs of cooling down here in sunny California. This seasonally transitional look hints at the upcoming season of fall. While providing a bit of relief from the red-hot triple digit temperatures we have been experiencing. I hope where ever you are the weather is pleasant and that you are having a great week!
