7 Best Oversized Turtlenecks for Your Fall Shopping List

Wednesday, August 27, 2014 • Permalink • 

Each season has a couple stand out trends that quickly trickle down from the runways to the store. This fall the most obvious runway-inspired trend is the oversized, slightly chunky turtleneck.

Considering how cozy and wearable this look is in real life, I’m fully embracing the trend. But, there are just so many options to choose from. Saks alone has over a dozen designer versions of the oversized turtleneck. A lady could get lost trying to find the just right sweater. So, in the interest of all of our sanities, I systematically waded through a range of online shopping destinations to find seven truly stand-out turtlenecks. Check them out…

I don’t know why I’m surprised by this, but this ultra-affordable Zara turtleneck might just be my favorite of the pack. I love the light biscuit color and the use of the purl stitch, which is uncommon among this season’s sweaters.

Loving This Week: Late Summer Sandals + Wool Sweater Bargain

A.P.C. Sandals - Uniqlo Sweater - AYR Shirt - Zara Blouse - COS Clutch

Although I’m generally 100% devoted to fall fashion at this point in the year, I found a couple warmer weather options that I couldn’t resist this week. Plus a clutch. But, oddly, all of the pieces look great together – like a capsule wardrobe, minus the pants.

Check out what’s in my online shopping cart this week…

1. A.P.C. Classic Sandal, $340.00
Although summer is nearly over, I’m still debating a sandal purchase. It’s silly. But, I’m head over heels for these simple sandals. The crossed black leather straps are timeless, while the suede platform combined with the rubber sole adds a laid-back luxury touch. A.P.C. does such a great job with closet staples.

Tiffany & Co. Launches New Minimalist Line: Tiffany T

Thursday, August 21, 2014 • Permalink • 

In her first collection as Tiffany & Co.’s new Design Director, Francesca Amfitheatrof has hit a home run. The new Tiffany T collection is a vision of modern minimalism, with sleek lines and bold shapes. I’m smitten.

Tiffany T by Tiffany and Co.

In the official release literature, Amfitheatrof credits her global travels and time spent living in Europe, Asia, and Russia as the inspiration for this new line. “While I was designing Tiffany T, I had these global citizens in my mind, interesting, highly creative people who exist in every great world city. The strength of Tiffany T is appealing to these explorers, because this is jewelry enhances an already vibrant personality rather than simply being decorative.”

The line comes in 18 karat gold – rose, yellow, and white – as well as sterling silver, with some pieces also incorporating white and black ceramic details and diamonds. In comparing the pieces available for sale on the Tiffany and Co. site with the pieces showcased in the press packet, it appears that some pieces, such as the ceramic-detail items, either haven’t been released yet or are only available in store. I haven’t been able to find a definitive answer. But, I’m not worried. The pieces that are available for purchase online are stunning.

Loving This Week: Point-Toe Loafers + Sleek Work Dresses

Vince Loafers - Neiman Marcus Cashmere Sweater - Roland Mouret for Banana Republic Dress - Sephora Collection Balm - Theory Sheath Dress

There’s no real rhyme or reason to this week’s shopping picks. Some things, like a pair of stunning calf hair loafers, are new fall arrivals that caught my eye. Others, like a chic navy dress, are items I’ve been waiting to see after months of anticipation.

Here’s a peek inside my online shopping cart this week…

1. Vince Nikita Leather and Calf Hair Loafer, $395.00
I spotted these gorgeous loafers in the new fall arrivals at Nordstrom over the weekend. The shape reminds me of the shoes stylish city men – poets and the like – would wear in the mid-1800s. I think they’d look fabulous with boyfriend jeans and a chunky sweater this fall. The combination of calf hair and leather is such a stand-out look. Gorgeous!

Luxurious Blue Picks for Late Summer Awe

--By Kim Moshtaghi

Blue, that happiest of colors, is where it’s at this time of year! Forget about shades of gray and settle on the color that will uplift you and take you to the sea. It’s no wonder people feel solace spending time by the beach on a sky-blue day.

I associate different shades of blue with various things, but overall blue feels luxurious. Not surprisingly, lighter shades of blue are lighthearted and give off a more carefree and fun vibe, but all in all, blue is always an inviting hue.

Starting off with pants, slip your legs into this Armani wide-leg pant. This is a flattering style for a tall gal who likes to accentuate her lower half. Wear with stilettos or pointy heels and pair with a ruffle top or tank for a night out. Don’t forget a classic clutch to play up the sophistication factor!
