If there is one way to show some of my favorite items for Winter 2012 it is to show you a visual collage of how I like to put things together. Since it is early Winter 2012 and it is cold everywhere or rainy, we have our jackets and ankle boots ready to go. One of my go to looks is the boyfriend blazer, ankle boots, tunic, coated denim jeans, and a great bangle and turquoise necklace. It is just the right pop of color without overwhelming worn with a great functional size bag made with the most sumptuous leather. Take a look at my picks from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Joie, DL1961, and Rag & Bone.
Get the Rag & Bone black motorcycle boots for $595.
The 3.1 Phillip Lim 31 hour bag is gorgeous and functional for $795.
The DL1961 Coated Emma denim jeansÂ Â for $168.
The always on trend Rag & Bone tuxedo jacket is a perfect complement this edgy on trend ensemble for $495.
The Joie Marlo tunic top with its open v neckline and hem length drapes nicely over a pair of skinny denims for $218.
A very cool pendant in a turquoise color brings the focus close to your face and finishes off a great outfit beautifully. Check out the Nessa Peacock Turquoise Tourmaline necklace for $1,565.Â And do not forget the arm party. Add theÂ Marni Coal Vertical Band Bangle Bracelet for $345 to complete your Spring 2012 look.
It is that holiday gift giving time of year again and you are probably getting invitations to parties and booking trips to go see your families. Gift giving is always a stressful time of the year and you will need to figure out what to get your husband’s brother’s wife or your mother in law’s boyfriend for holiday gifts, but while doing that why not take a little time and give yourself something special for this time of year. You work hard you deserve it. What is it that you have wanted all year? Is it a Hermes birkin bag? A pair of Prada shoes? a Rag & Bone jacket?
This year we thought we would make gift giving even more rewarding for you to shop designers for yourself for the holidays by thinking Green. Why not look at items that may have been pre loved? When you buy something preowned you can get quite a great deal. You can also find items that are very hard to find or no longer being made. So many great finds can be found when you are not looking to shop for your favorite designers in the same place where everyone else is shopping. You may end up with a highly coveted piece that the designer no longer makes. Also you may find something for a loved one to fill your gift giving quota.
Case in point – the following items were rare finds on Ebay.com that I thought you may be interested in. They are all designers and in great condition. Think GREEN this holiday and save.

This past season was all about pinks and turquoise and I loved every minute of it. This fall Chanel is still playing with lilac in their classic flap bag and many designers are mixing their darks with their pastels. The menswear trend is still showing up in the fall collections and one of the best out there is the Elizabeth and James collection by the Olsen twins. They played with textures, prints, and fabrics this season and came up in spades with menswear inspired jackets, ankle boots and skirts. IF you are thinking about what you will be wearing to see The Great Gatsby this Christmas starring Leonardo DiCaprio I suggest you invest in some Elizabeth and James.
One of my favorites from this past season was their pink blazer jackets in a shocking pink and ballerina slipper pink. They played with colors, but still created a menswear inspired well tailored jacket. You may think it is fall and you should be buying new Elizabeth and James and I agree, but I also think you should buy these great colored jackets to wear with your dark colors for fall on those rainy days when you need a pick me up. Also, by March after all the snow, slush, and rain, you will want to wear a bit of color again and pine for Spring to return.

Itâ€™s summertime ladies, which means its time to add some color to your wardrobe! Right now, bright colors are in style so move away from your classic navy pieces to some brighter blues. Here are the top 5 turquoise pieces:
1)Â Â Â Â Â Feel The Piece Casper Tee: This oversized jersey tee has a scoop neck and hipster-cool draped sides. Itâ€™s perfect for over a swimsuit, or with a pair of shorts. The best part is that its only $88 at Shopbop.
2)Â Â Â Â Â Kate Spade New York IPhone 4 Case: Itâ€™s totally understandable if youâ€™re a little nervous to add a burst of color to your wardrobe. This IPhone case is the perfect way to add a peek of color. Itâ€™s not only trendy, but it saves you from cracking your phone. Now thatâ€™s what I call a win-win. You can get it at Neiman Marcus for only $35.
3)Â Â Â Â Â Elkin Pearl Jacket: This turquoise wool blazer has antiqued buttons and cute pockets that sit at the hip. It would look great with a pair of white jeans and wedges. You can get it at Shopbop for $475.
4)Â Â Â Â Â Chan Luu Brown Turquoise Five Wrap Bracelet: This wrap bracelet is a must-have. Itâ€™s made of leather cord and colored stones giving off a very bohemian vibe. The colors are also very versatile so you can wear it all through fall. You can find it at Bloomingdales for $190.

A bonus turquoise item that I love for this season is the Rag & Bone Silver Tuxedo blazer jacket in turquoise as seen on Divya on the USA Network show Royal Pains this past week. The color is just the right shade of turquoise and ranks among my favorites from this season along with the Stella McCartney pink blazer seen on Charlize Theron a few weeks back. You can buy this blazer on sale at Les Nouvelles for $315 plus an additional 10% off with coupon code SHOPLN10 at checkout.Â
Kim Kardashian was seen wearing a pop of pink in her all black ensemble of a black Hermes Birkin bag, black pumps and black cowl neck dress. That pop of pink color took the outfit from staid and boring to on trend for the season. This season is all about neons and brights and this blazer jacket is a great jacket for anyone who is not brave enough to wear colored denim. Sometimes it is just so much easier to wear a bright top and not a bright bottom.
