Though, I still only gravitate toward the simple, elegant ones.
The latest trend is a bit much for me. However, there are many styles to choose from — black ribbon, ornate, funky. Something for everybody.
I happen to dig this combo piece. Stella McCartney designed this for a layered look. Made from polished gold-plated brass, it has a curved choker that's attached to a delicate long chain. You can adjust the fastening to suit both high or low necklines.

While in Dallas a couple of weeks ago, I visited my favorite Neiman Marcus cosmetics gurus, Denise and Maria. We played with a couple of the new Omorovicza products from the oxygen line. The booster is definitely on my list!
However, I went straight for the Hydra Melting Cleanser, a gel cleansing balm that I have wanted to add to my skin care regimen for quite some time. This invigorating triple-phase facial cleanser effortlessly removes all impurities without stripping. The rich gel melts into an oil when massaged into the skin. Add water and it transforms into a milky emulsion that rinses easily away. It works as good as it smells!
It contains mallow flower extract to hydrate the skin and reduce inflammation for a more even skin tone; sea buckthorn berry oil rich in vitamins A, C and E and Omega 7 to purify and regenerate the skin; essential oils of sage, rose geranium and Roman chamomile for an astringent and antiseptic effect, as well as calming the senses; and Omorovicza’s patented Hydro Mineral Transference™ system leaving the skin firmer, more supple and younger looking.
Of course, I couldn't leave with just one item. The Miracle Facial Oil had to join the party. That, too, is delicious!
Sneakers are still on trend.
Yay for comfort!
Add a sports-luxe finish to any daytime look with Alexander McQueen's leather sneakers. Available in white with several trim options, the classic style is elevated with a chunky rubber sole that features a built-in wedge for height and comfort. A beautiful rosy-pink suede panel to the heel is printed with the designer's logo in an opulent gold-tone effect for an instant dose of chic.

Having just arrived back from an amazingly beautiful family weekend showering my middle sister, the bride-to-be, with lots of love, this tee just seems fitting today.
Expressing how you feel through clothing is fun, and of course stylish! This soft featherweight tee, crafted from pure cotton jersey by Each x Other, is an easy addition to your closet, bringing lots of love and happiness. Wear with joggers and wedges, a skirt and flirty heels or jeans, a tailored jacket and sneakers.
A conversation-starter for sure.

A couple weeks ago I had the pleasure of lunching with some of my favorite peeps at Neiman Marcus for their fall preview. This exclusive event showcased the season's best looks, from head to toe.
In one word, awesome.
We are coming upon my favorite season of the year. And the picks from Ken Downing, Fashion Director, have me giddy. On top of the scrumptious fabrics and prints, Neiman Marcus has a growing list of items found only at Neiman Marcus (look for #onlyatNM). The consistent theme in the past several seasons is color — berry baby! And my favorite model, Brooke, shows us just how to wear it.
Keeping it simple, Neiman Marcus shares their list of must haves for fall.
Bold gold and high shine metallics, ripe berry shades, velvet, florals, skirts that move, the new bomber, chokers, top-handle bags, the adorned shoe and the dramatic eye.
Browns (from camel to whiskey), British accents (plaids, checks and tweeds), velvet, 70s swagger, attitude tees, suede and shearling outwear, trainers and statement topcoats.
These are my personal favorites:
Time to get excited for fall, even if your particular climate isn't cooperating.
