For those of you who are not thinking about snow or winter yet, just know that Montana saw it’s first snow yesterday and I am sure Colorado will see some snow soon.

Whatever the case, now is the time to get Sorel boots for winter weather because Shopbop.com is doing their Main Event where you get 25% off Sorel boots. Shop the Shopbop Main Event and stock up on Sam. fur lined parkas while you are at it and a cute pair of Linda Farrow aviator sunglasses to keep the sun out of your eyes on the slopes. Get it done now so you are all set for winter.
The Christian Louboutin Gold Cataclou Sandals are like jewelry for your feet with the pyramid studs across the toes. I didn’t really think about these sandals this summer because I was too busy wearing beach sandals and pool slides, however now that we have hit a mild 75 degree temperature for fall in Los Angeles, I am rethinking a dressier sandal for nights out and parties for fall. These platforms are 2.5 inches and height and give you a little height and a little bit of shine on your feet. You can wear these sandals with virtually anything including my favorite Ulla Johnson skirts, dresses, or some AG torn jeans. Rihanna was seen wearing these same sandals this summer and she looked fab.

Kate Bosworth was spotted this past summer wearing a Joie navy printed dress in New York City. She wore it with her hair in a ponytail, tortoiseshell sunnies, and a small shopper style bag. We found the dress on sale for 50% off. Some of you may be saying it is fall, but if you live anywhere in California, Arizona,or the South, I think you have at least 2 months of summer weather ahead of you with Global Warming and all. Get the dress now for 50% off.

Are you ready for fall? As I watch the Philadelphia Eagles versus the Chicago Bears Football game on television tonight for Monday night football and realize it is 80 degrees on the East Coast in mid September, I am no longer under the impression we have global warming in the world. We experienced 99 degrees while watching the Rams football game against the Seattle Seahawks this weekend and I am certain it is going to be a warm fall. That being said, there will be some brisk mornings and with that said there is nothing more perfect that a pair of shearling sandals that let your toes breathe while keeping your feet warm when you are out walking your dog at 6:30AM no matter if you live in the West or the East Coast. My favorite are the all black Birkenstock Arizona 2 strap sandals with the black shearling lining. Imagine walking your dog in your cozy shearling sandals that you can slip right on with one eye open at 6AM. You can have your coffee, throw your Bandolier chain phone case over your shoulders, and walk right out the door with your Birkenstocks. Life could not get any easier. And you will be stylish since celebrities have been seen wearing their Birkenstocks and Bandolier phone cases all over Los Angeles and New York as of late.
My favorite is the all black shearling and black leather Birkenstocks here.

El Nino in Los Angeles with Hunter Rain Boots – People in Los Angeles dislike the rain and as a transplant from the east coast I still cannot understand the massive hysteria that goes along with a little bit of rain. Sometimes I miss weather in Los Angeles. Having grown up with large amounts of rain weekly and snow in the winters, changes in weather were just a fact of life. Since we do need the rain in Los Angeles, everyone should just be prepared for the rain and see it as a gift from mother nature and take the opportunity to buy some new rain boots for the next few weeks ahead. My favorite rain boots for this kind of rain is of course the Hunter Wellington rubber boots because they are such a classic. They come in all sorts of pretty colors and can be worn with any outfit in the rain. They will keep you dry from the rain or snow and you will look stylish too if you buy it in a fun color like yellow, red, pink, or light blue. If you want the Angelina Jolie look from the Mr. and Mrs. Smith movie then buy the red Hunter Wellington Boots.
I found some pretty light pink Hunter Wellington boots here.
If you want the sky blue Hunter Wellington boots go here.
And if you are like our dog Lexi who doesn’t like the rain, curl up in a blanket on your bed and just stare out the window.
What are you wearing for Halloween tonight? If you have not figured out your costume – now is the time to run not walk to a local Los Angeles store Sweat NSK and pick up a pair of Chill by Will Skull leggings and a Bat Sweatshirt from Zoe Karssen. You will look chic in athleisure tonight and stay comfortable and warm. I cannot think of a better outfit. Other options that I am obsessed with include these custom made Chanel bag and Hermes Birkin bag costumes, but this takes a little more planning. And since it is about 90 degrees in Los Angeles today, you may not want the Thomas Wylde skull quilted vest seen here on Rosie Huntington Whitley.

If there was ever a pretty top to wear under a black power suit, this I.D. Sarrieri Chantilly Lace Jumpsuit in Burgundy is exactly the right underpinning. I love the look of it for its sexy plunging neckline and scalloped lace detailing. There is nothing so feminine and commanding in one piece. For you Kim Kardashian fans, she has been seen in something similar here. Read what we wrote about Kim Kardashian’s lace camisole here.
Kim Kardashian has been wearing this black leather motorcycle jacket everywhere lately. It is the perfect leather jacket for anyone who is petite and hourglass in shape. If you are built like Kim (I have seen her in person) and are about 125 pounds and 5 feet 2 inches tall with an hourglass body type, this is a great leather jacket for you. She obviously loves the fit of the jacket or she would not wear it on so many different occasions. Get the leather jacket at Nordstrom.com or here on sale with code MemorialDay2015 to get 20% off now.
