Technically fall starts this week, to make dressing for the season feel right, I'm blending summer and fall. I've got prints and textures that feel rich and ready for autumn, paired with white. Plus, the easy pants can easily straddle both season and work for temperatures anywhere from 60-80. Don't you just love flexible fashion!
The track pant trend is still going strong (thanks Gwen Stefani!) and they are perfect for travel and in-between weather. This pair is from NYDJ (they were $98) and has a stripe on the side and the exclusive "Lift Tuck Technology®" they didn't make me feel any slimmer (maybe even the opposite) but I loved the pull-on style and the easy feel. The pants are now on sale for $49.99 on 6pm. Click here to get them!
I'm really excited to talk about the bag. Did you know Alex and Ani are releasing the first leather bags in a few weeks. I got to borrow the Fold-Over Clutch for the photo shoot. LOVE! This bag will be priced at $168--you can head here to pre-order www.alexandani.com/blog/gabriel-leather-collection-colors/ they should be available this week.
Also from Alex and Ani are my bangles. I got this trio at my last showroom visit--mixing the leather and metal is right on trend!

Now my shoes. I am thanking the fashion gods for making "Vans" cool again. They are so comfortable and I've been racing all over NYC now that Serena our Managing Editor had her baby and is on leave (it's a girl and everyone is doing great!). These Vince 'Berlin 1' Calf Hair Sneakers ($295) make me ridiculously happy. Women stop me ALL THE TIME to ask about them. The calf hair makes them a little shiny and dressy. It's been a love affair all month.
