chloecoatA little chill in the air.

Last Saturday, it was more than a chill. It was downright cold. Or, was it because it was the first of the season?

I ran into a friend this morning and he brought the whole concept of 'first' to light. When we move from summer into fall, there are days that surprise us. No matter how much we want fall temps to grace us, when we experience an unusually cold day, it's a shock to our systems.

No reason not to be prepared. How about with this Chloé wool-blend black coat with furry shearling trim collar. The two-way zip front and slightly stepped hem makes an elegant statement no matter what you're layering it over.

Oh, it's time.

Time to check in with one of my favorite shoe designers, Charlotte Olympia.

Fall promises to bring plush goodness for your feet! These beauties will take you just about anywhere, too. Being a huge fan of the kitties (yes, I have a pair), I am eyeing a few more to add to my collection. Especially, the black velvet sneakers. Hello! If I didn't already have a sweet pair of high tops, I'd go for those. But this classic style, with a major twist, has me drooling.

Every pair of COs has attitude, and bring glamour and drama with every step. They make me so happy.



Is it crazy that I want to run around the house in this? 

It's almost the perfect time of year to reach for your lingerie. No one will expect it. Besides, with the weather changing, muggy mixed with cooler temps makes it manageable. How easy would it be to throw a cashmere wrap around this anyway?

Loving this Simone Pérèle bodysuit. Curve-hugging, devastatingly sexy and easy to wear, this deco graphic embroidery on sheer tulle creates a tattoo-like effect. You can even wear this under a blouse.  

You don't have to wait for a special occasion to wear gorgeous lingerie. In fact, it's even better worn on an ordinary day.

After all, it's how it makes you feel. 


Ivory handbags. My favorite.

No surprise that The Row has mastered the beautifully simple, yet impeccably constructed, handbag. This fall's Drum 10 bag has been crafted in Italy from off white pebbled leather. The roll shaped style has a curved top zipper that opens to a roomy canvas-lined interior. And two ways to carry it — top handle or over the shoulder.

During my recent visit to NYC, I had the opportunity to stop in one of my very favorite designer boutiques, Brunello Cucinelli. A sea of delicious neutrals that turn the heads of even the brightest of folk. Between the fabrics, cuts and relaxed styles, I was in heaven. I want the whole collection!  

From one piece of fabulousness to the next, I was high on the rich brilliance that is the fall line. And this fur — yes, it will be mine.
