 At this point in my life I don’t think I’ve met a jumpsuit I haven’t liked and sometimes you have to ditch the LBD for the LBO…  Or little black onesie.  This T-by Alexander Wang jumpsuit was the perfect addition to my closet and sartorially feels like something Leandra Medine could get behind.

And PS this jumpsuit is on MAJOR sale!  Happy shopping!

Last year when I interviewed lingerie designer Kelly Calabrese (view here) I knew I needed to take her pieces for a test drive.  Black lace panties and bras with fringe?  Sign me up!  Keep in mind these pieces are something special, not only because Kelly does everything herself from drawing out the patterns to making each piece by hand, but because finally there’s a lingerie line that offers something different.  Vintage frills with a burlesque edge and harnesses that woman all over will be lusting for after  watching 50 Shades of Grey next weekend.

Warm, sophisticated, and inexpensive, this wool dress from Mango’s Premium Collection is an awesome new addition to my closet.  Paired with suede pumps or ankle boots it can be worn day or night.  It’s also a great dress to hide all of your unforgivable areas and will be a great piece to wear to a holiday party or two.

I thought finding the perfect loafer for Fall was going to be a challenge, but as usual Zara had exactly what I was looking for.  These loafers go with everything from jeans to my leather mini, adding a masculine touch in just the right way.  I decided to put a mod schoolgirl twist on them with this Cos periwinkle turtleneck sweater and an easy to wear trench from Isabel Marant.

When it comes to dressing down my JBrand leather skinnies naturally I reach for my favorite pair of Nikes.  Comfortable enough to make it through my daily routine and on trend so I don’t have to give up any style points. I don’t believe that comfort means sacrificing style.  So, if you find yourself wanting to pair your favorite sneakers with leather, take it from me and just do it!

A leather pencil skirt has been on my list of must haves for a long time.  However finding one that fit, was good leather, and just the right length, was more of a challenge than expected.  Enter ASOS!  I have been a long time fan of ASOS and always find rare gems while scrolling through their massive inventory.  Luckily I found this beauty and it’s under $200…  Happy shopping!

The bell bottom is back and I couldn’t be happier to channel my inner Penny Lane.  This is another great example of why I never get rid of anything basic in my wardrobe, no matter how far out of style something may seem, they always come back.  These jeans by Genetic Denim have a great high rise and dark wash that makes them easy to wear with luxe pieces like my new Philip Lim camel coat.

Hello October!  Hello cooler weather!  I can finally bring out my Fall staples. The blanket coat trend is one of my favorites of the season.  And although I’m pining for the Burberry version, this vintage blanket coat was my grandmas and I’m beyond obsessed with it.  In bright red and navy blue I can work it into all of my neutral hued outfits.  And my favorite pair of J Brand Leather skinnies can come back into play!  Paired with my new Lace up suede sandal/booties (thanks Mom!) this outfit can take me from day to-night.
