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.

Since it is 104 degrees in Los Angeles today and we are not in the valley, we know one thing – summer is not ending anytime soon. As a result of that, we have rounded up some great Joie white dresses that are now on sale so that you can wear them for the next month at least. Since California has been suffering from a drought for the last 5 years, we have seen summer weather take over the fall months in California. I do not anticipate seeing any cashmere sweaters coming out of my closet until at least the end of November. Last year, mid October had temps in the 90’s and this year will probably be the same. As I hope for rain, I am buying myself a few more Joie white dresses on sale to keep me cool.
My 2 favorites are the Joie Laton long sleeve dress and the Joie Deleon short sleeve dress. The Joie Laton dress has a cinched in waist and gives the dress a dressy look so you can wear this dress out any night this Indian summer with a pair of Valentino Rockstud flat sandals. The Joie Deleon short sleeve dress is more of a free flow dress to be worn with sandals for a summer casual day out for brunch. Either way you cannot go wrong as both dresses are now on sale for 40% off.
Everything is oversized this fall including dresses. Forget your formfitting waist cinching dresses, this fall it is all about the oversized collared puffer coat from Balenciaga, the oversized sweater from Isabel Marant, and the oversized long sleeved printed dress from Chloe. I am loving the overisized look personally because it makes everyone look so petite under all of that fabric. Wear this beautiful dress with the perfect ankle booties or a pair of pool slides for fall or resort season. My pick for the best oversized dress this season is definitely this one.
Today is the first day of fall and although it is still 90 degrees outside, everyone should start thinking about fall boots before they are all sold out. My love for the Isabel Marant Dicker boots are still alive and well and now I found them for 40% less which makes them even more attractive. The current retail price on the sporty ankle boots are$635, but I found them in Europe for $339 US. Yup. Get them here now. I thought I would share since sharing is caring as they say. They have them in the black suede and the beige suede in a limited run of sizes. Hope you get yours in time for all your fall events.
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.
Whether you are gearing up your wardrobe for fall or winter, the Suzanne Kalan collection is delicate and ideal for the sophisticated fashionista. My favorite choices for this season are a mixture of flashy and timeless. You simply can’t go wrong with these five jewelry choices.
With 1.11-carats of diamonds set in an 18-karat gold piece, the clustering design features geometric shapes that seem to dance around the wrist. This delicate band is beautiful by itself or with several other cuffs stacked on a wrist. This design is the signature “Fireworks” motif and is handcrafted in a flexible open band style. I think this little flash of glitz is exactly right for fall and winter wardrobes in 2016.
For an even more delicate look, the Organized Chaos version of the Firework setting contains .70-carats of diamonds set in a streamlined layout of 18-karat rose gold. This delicate band could also be paired with other cuffs in the series for an interesting set of textures on the wrist. The handcrafted and flexible cuff is so sweet and simple, but very chic.
Simple and elegant, I love this vertical stack diamond ring. There are 1.60-carats of baguette-cut diamonds that line up somewhat haphazardly along the 18-karat white gold band. This beautiful ring adds a bit of texture to your look without being too flashy or obnoxious.
This dainty drop earring offers just a bit of glittery texture to your ears with .75-carats of stunning baguette-cut earrings. These handcrafted designs mean Suzanne Kalan is personally picking out individual stones to be set into unique pieces. I think the unique style really shines through in this earring set, with a cluster pattern that isn’t like anything I’ve seen before.
Paired perfectly with the vertical stack ring, these delicate earrings create a vertical line on your lobe that is different and will catch the eyes of many. A total of .18-carats are used to form this stylish earring set. I’m loving this romantic look for winter and spring!
Make sure you take the opportunity to check out these glamorous items for yourself!
If you are looking for a great durable everyday bag, look no further than the Fendi 2Jours Textured Leather Shopper. It is my favorite bag because you can take it anywhere with you. Case in point, I take mine to play tennis and to the farmer’s market and to work daily. The leather is a textured saffiano leather that will not scratch under most circumstances and you can look polished weather wearing a pair of Koral lustrous leggings and Birkenstocks at the Farmer’s Market or your Stella McCartney tennis skirt to play a round robin. This bag has 3 compartments with a middle zip compartment to keep your valuables from straying and a shoulder strap to keep you hands free when you are running around holding bags or a laptop bag.
After wearing my Asics running sneakers daily for a full year, I decided I needed to start wearing normal shoes at least a few times a week. Question was should I buy designer athleisure sneakers or actually buy real shoes? I decided owning another pair of designer Valentino sneakers may be the most prudent, but I did need to give my life a little variety and buy a pair of good looking, flat function non Birkenstock sandals. My choice were a pair of Valentino Rockstud sandals in a nude color that are great looking, comfortable, and functional. With the trifecta of comfort, looks, and function, how could I go wrong? I love the pink nude color of the sandals and the pretty rose gold colored studs. The comfort of a flat sandal that I could wear with a pair of Crippen trouser short and a Ulla Johnson silk blouse was an outfit of the day that could not be beat. With Global Warming, we hardly have rain or winter in Los Angeles anymore so these would definitely last me for many seasons to come.
The Labor Day weekend started off with a rocky start because of a few work glitches that included a moving violation for rolling a Stop sign on Saturday, but we did not let that get us down. After a brief cry of salty tears, we resumed our day as planned. We still managed to get it started with a visit to our new favorite Omusubi place in Culver City called Sunny Blue. Sunny Blue has the most authentic omusubi we have tasted outside of Japan in Los Angeles. Choices include a fun tuna bacon flavor to traditional miso beef and hijiki shitake choices. We like to sit and eat them at the small friendly location in Culver City and then take some home for the rest of the week for quick grab and go lunches. Omusubi is a great lunch alternative to a regular sandwich or salad because it is totally portable and can be eaten warm or cold without too much more preparation beyond pulling the wrapping off. The small portable rice balls are relatively healthy since the portions are small and gluten free.
We then made a stop to our Goop favorite Moon Juice for a stock up on our favorite moon milks for the week. Moon Juice is a plant sourced and alchemy based juice place that offers an interesting array of snacks that are unlike any you have tasted from other juicing establishments. For example, our favorites include the coconut mylk and mango milk which taste like desserts, but are all natural. Their snacks include green fermented seed strips which are made from dried cabbage, daikon, and jalepeno which are quite filling and a fun savory snack for those mid day hunger pangs between lunch and dinner when you need a quick pick me up for under 120 calories. After all if you are doing montly unlimited classes at your local Pilates Platinum or Body By Simone, you gotta stick to the 80% diet and 20% exercise rule to stay in tip top shape.
The classic slip on has been given a modern update to make it more street savvy, durable and easily assimilated into your metro chic wardrobe. You get leather with a textile lining and a great looking, slightly raised rubber sole.
Looking at this beautiful shoe head on brings you more of a pump style, but the mesh insets and leather/textile lining definitely give you sneaker when you put it on. You gain the convenience of a streetwise shoe and the chic of a ballet slipper at the same time.
Steven Madden gives you a futuristic shine alongside a chunky sole – very Judy Jetson. You get all of the urban personality with a footbed that is padded for maximum comfort. The lace up style gives you an unmistakeable sneaker vibe that does not lose any chic no matter what you wear it with.
The shoe that is comfortable enough to fit like a sock, this Nike is one of the snuggest shoes on the market. You get foam cushioning for a performance response that is unlike any other chic sneaker out now. Asymmetrical lacing adds style and keeps the pressure off of your foot.
Although this sneaker is more of a low profile look, it still gives you a great base to take on any outdoor activity from running to catching a quick brunch with a friend. You can remove the inside for a looser fit.
