A pair of boots that I am drooling over this season is the Stella McCartney faux leather wedge ankle boots in black. They have just arrived in stores and I got the pleasure of trying them on the other day. Let me tell you if you are looking for a great pair of wedge ankle booties to go with skirts, leggings, jeans and everything in between for this Fall 2012 and Winter I suggest you buy these. Not only are they comfortable, but because they are a wedge they will give you 5 extra inches of height. What girl does not want to be 5 inches taller? The look of these boots is very edgy and yet very wearable. So if you want to throw on your motorcycle leather jacket and a pair of jeans you can definitely make this a look that would be worthy of a runway model OR you can wear these ankle boots with a black cashmere turtleneck dress and black hosiery for a work to cocktails ensemble that is work appropriate and after work drinks appropriate. These ankle boots are 100% versatile and have a 1.5 inch wedge platform so you will not feel like you are walking on stilts. This is a no brainer for Fall.
Prada just launched its Fall 2012 collection of bags and the bags are fabulous. It is all about the classics again. Prada has delved into the motorcycle shoes and other trends, but getting back to Prada Italian leather quality and good design has always been the Â brands strong suit and this year they finally got it right again. I have not looked at Prada much since the days of their open top bags in 1999, but these last 2 years Prada has been bringing sexy back. Prada is doing some great bags again. The top 2 styles I love for this season is the simple hobo style and the saffiano messenger crossbody bag for Fall 2012.
The Prada Crossbody Messenger Bag design in textured saffiano lux leather is a durable beautiful classic piece that can take you from work to vacation this summer and back without any scratches or rips. The saffiano textured leather is that great leather that always looks the same no matter the age of the bag. It looks like the nylon version that we have loved all these years, but with a more structured body so we can take it to work too or even out to dinner.

It is raining in Los Angeles and New York City today and everyone from the west coast to the east coast knows that fall has arrived. Now is the time to get a great pair of boots for the inclement weather.
One of my all time favorite “classic” boot are the Fiorentini & Baker 7040 Eternity Boot Black Leather. These boots are made with exceptional attention to detail and design. The vintage looks of the boots and the careful creases in the leather give the boots the worn in look you will want to live in all fall and winter. This boot is now as classic and iconic as a Balenciaga bag so if you do not have a pair get a pair this season.
Lindsay Lohan was seen in a recent magazine shoot wearing a pair of Koolaburra Haley Boots. The boots are very cool with their foldover shearling style and fringe. It is the perfect boot to wear this fall and winter with a short skirt or a pair of leggings with a fur lined puffer coat. The boots are made of Grade A Australian Twinface sheepskin Fold Over Classic short Boot with Two Rows of Fringe. I love the hybrid Minnetonka and Shearling Ugg boot look in one.
ALC’s MUST HAVE leather moto jacket is a forever piece. Zips up the front with snaps. Flap pockets at chest and waist. Buckle detail at neck. Cotton ribbing on interior sleeves and underarms for stretch. Fully lined. It is that army jacket you have seen people wearing in olive green. I love it in the black leather for fall and winter. It will go great with jeans for a night out or with a dress.
The look for fall is very lady like and classic with a modern twist this year. A tweed jacket with a turtleneck, some lugsole boots, and a cross body bag gives you the look of classic with the twist of modern. It is ladylike even though a bit menswear inspired.
The belted tweed jacket looks great with the wool turtleneck and opaque tights. The lugsole boots give it that city edge you want in the fall and winter.
Find the Tory Burch tweed jacket, cross body bag, and lug sole boots here now.
The best watch I have seen this season does not cost $3,000 it is under $150 and it is the best looking classic watch with an edgy twist that I have seen in years! I usually swear by the classic designers you know and love ie/ the Rolex, the Cartier…this La Mer Collections Pyramid Stud Wrap Watch in the pyramid stud style is destined to become a classic in your closet. I love it because it has the black leather smarts of a classic watch with the new edge of the pyramid studs all in one package. Get it before it is gone, LA Times and NY Magazine wrote about it in the same week. I love it!!! Click here to buy the La Mer Collections Pyramid Stud Wrap Watch.
As I was doing some shopping with my cup of green tea latte this morning, I found the best piece for the Fall. For all of you experiencing the nip of the Fall air coming in at night, you know that Halloween and apple cider are just around the corner. Classics are a focus this season and I found a beautiful must have sweater that will become a classic in your closet. This easy Vince Wrap Front Cashmere Sweater features a faux wrap at the front with a deep, draped V-neck that can be both modest and alluring, depending on what’s worn beneath. Long ribbed sleeves with wide ribbed trim at hem. I love it in this royal purple that will compliment your face without giving you bunny eyes like purple eyeliner. Click the photo below to get a closer look. This one screams instant classic.
