Glossy Fall Faves

I can’t believe its already October 1st. In my mind fall is here but we are still in the middle of a heat wave in LA so for now I will just have to look at the pretty fall ads and dream of sweaters and cooler days. Here are some of my current faves…

1) This Versace cape coat is AH-MAZING!!! You know how much I love the color red! 2) These Calvin Klein sunnies remind me of a clear pair I just got at F21 that I am obsessed with. 3) This ad for 3.1 Phillip Lim is so gorgeous. I love the little lady in red in the background. 4) Black and white photos can be so simple and yet so moody. I love everything about this look from Sandro. 5) I have been obsessed with grey for the last few years and this coat by VINCE is just perfect. It looks cozy yet chic. 6) I am thrilled to see that Coach has gotten a little edgier. I would wear this entire look from head to toe!

Tie-dyed Dreams

I initially purchased this flowy tie-dyed dress for my recent trip to Hawaii having no idea that when I returned, LA would be in the middle of a heat wave. Needless to say, this is all I have wanted to wear and I lived in it all last weekend. I might even put it on again today. It is so comfy and cool and I can dress it up with jewelry!
