what i want now!
given that I am the ultimate shopaholic & magazine whore i decided i would share my knowledge. So, I have done just that and compiled a list of my favorite items for the season! i have also thrown in a few staples that will transcend into future seasons! enjoy! there will be more to come with all links in place!

  • cashmere- is a must have for colder weather!! the best deal you can get on fabulous high quality cashmere is at jcrew. the cashmere tee & cashmere hoodie are must-haves for everyday comfort & style. i must have them in every color! i adore my cashmere burrberry scarf(i have it in light blue) but i really want it in pink
  • velvet is definitely the fabric of the season. this fall, the must have closet accessory is the velvet blazer! i favor jcrew’s velveteen blazer. for a more dressed up look i love diane von furstenberg’s take on the velvet jacket, the victor velvet jacket with this piece she combines fall’s military-inspired trend w/ velvet and the result is to die for (i’ve never seen a military jacket look so feminine) it is a bit pricy but it is lovely! marc jacobs took a similar approach to this military inspired velvet jacket –although this jacket has the gold buttons(a military casualty if you ask me) I adore the robin blue piping…it makes it playful and fun perfect for my favorite pairing jeans and heels! Don’t feel like splurging on a trend heavy jacket??? go for something a little more pocketbook friendly with this velveteen military jacket,a steal at $68. Now, if you have places to go this holiday season and you have some cash to expend nanette lapore has an AHmazing embellished cropped jacket i also love the velvet blazer + belle skirt look favored by jill stuart
  • more velvet! blouses, sweaters, skirts, pants, handbags embellished in the fabric are ubiquitous this season! velvet can really dress up any bland tweed adding a feminine touch & even a bit of color in a heartbeat! the best examples of this are the many many many lovely accessories out there! i love these from coach & jcrew (you’ll find that the styles are nearly identical…hmmm)
  • i have a number of blouses that are embellished with a little bit of velvet here and there and it allows you to really tie in fabulous separates. for instance this silk cami adds ruched velvet for a fun dressed up look. i think it would be great w/ jeans and heels or paired with a skirt for a holiday party. if you are looking for something fun, femminine, but a little less settle free people brings all of our favorites into one with it’s velvet lace bolero. it is essentially a cropped velvet blazer embellished with lace and would be “ridicoulously good looking” with hot jeans & heels. unfortunately, it might be a little over the top for work.

    onward to my favorite! the skirts!

    • starry breck lichen skirt i love love love this embellished skirt from anthropologie. it is flirty & fun not to mention v. classy
    • nadia’s dancing skirt if you are looking for something more versitile (which i am all about!) this black velvet circle skirt is prrrrfect! it has to be one of my favorites and one that i will be picking up immediately!
    • please please please me skirt this tiered velveteen skirt is super cute and looks extra lush in black
    • starlight skirt this crushed velvet skirt is very russian & very trendy. with cute embellished pumps this could be too die for. you have to be careful with this look…A) you never want to look too costumey or for that matter too russian…so be careful…(i guess that is just the conservative in me speaking!)

    you can also check out bcbg for some of my fave styles in velvet.

  • cute ipod cases! banana republic has the cutest hot pink ipod case for $38 that i am so buying tommorrow for cute metallic ipod cases & high quality leathers check out kate spade, coach ,
    marc by marc jacobs, marc jacobs collection , or even juicy couture
    But if you want a signature designer case louis vuitton and burberry have the cutest ones around– that is unless you can get your hands on a gucci ipod case!!! however, given the recent events the new ipod & nano introductions I’m not sure which cases will work. for the nano you can get cute cases through apple
