Introducing the newest Fall MUST HAVE this season!! I am absolutely mad about leather!! I cannot get enough, and have been on a massive man hunt to find that perfect leather vest. I searched high and low, and came up with my favorite motorcycle duds for this fall. Leather vests are a great way to complete an outfit and seal the deal. If you ever feel like something is missing, just throw the vest on and load up on arm and neck candy and your good to go enjoy my favs by Phillip Lim, Alexander McQueen, the forever stylist and trendsetters, the olsen girls at The Row, Lanvin and the list goes on. xoxo, DTR
While shopping this weekend, I became relatively disappointed with the boot selection for fall. There are some key items that I want to invest, but I must admit, walking through Bergdorf Goodman left me feeling underwhelmed (which for me, is a rarity!).
For those looking for the perfect fall boot, I wanted to create a basic guide to distinguish between what pieces are perfect, must-have investments and what ordinary pieces aren’t worth the splurge for fall.
One of my favorite things to do in the city is go on a date with my girlfriends. It’s so fun to get dressed up in your chic-est outfit and highest heels to enjoy a night of wine, cheese plates and girl talk with your best friends.
I especially enjoy the black and white trend and feel that trying out new trends is perfectly applicable for girls’ night attire. Whether it’s black and white color-blocking or stripes, these contrasting colors look extremely fierce when worn together. When I saw an outfit on Scent of Obsession’s blog, her stylish look served as inspiration for my next girls’ night look. Who knew a striped blouse and a black skirt could look so fierce!
Both Nasty Gal and Urban Outfitters have a great selection of black and white tops and black skirts, but I recommend a blouse with a solid black collar and button detailing (the black line elongates your torso and brings your eye to the middle of your body for a slimming effect) and a high-low draped skirt to add more depth.
I also loved how this blogger incorporated both gold and burgundy as accent colors into her look, and wanted to do so with both my makeup and accessories as well. I found this Marni bag at Saks and also loved the gold detailing on a Saint Laurent’s classic black pump (available at Bergdorf Goodman). Top it off with a pair of leopard cat-eye shades (Oliver Peoples shades are incredible) and you’re ready for a night on the town with your favorite ladies!
Fashion is always one season ahead of the rest of the world; so while some people might be starting to think of breaking out sandals and lightweight tees, stylists are focused on all of the major things happening this fall. Without any surprise, some of my favorite, most chicly wearable looks are at Alexander McQueen. So obsessed with the button front, bibbed, studded Poplin Shirt with long flared sleeves and pleated cuffs (shown below, left). Pair it with McQueen’s skinny suede/leather pants (can’t wait to rock this combo!) and the ribbed peplum jacket and you have a show stoppingly beautiful day look.
One of the looks I’m most excited to dress and wear this fall is the McQueen long sleeve crepe gown with embroidered embellishments, long slit cuff sleeves, and high keyhole neckline. Look familiar? That’s because we saw it on the gorgeous Kate Hudson at the 2013 Golden Globes.
Best of all, Bergdorf Goodman is already offering these exquisite pieces with free 2-day shipping, so we can stare and lust over these beauties in our closet that much longer! Shop the day look here or shop the evening look here.
