Bad Ass Prints for Fall

I am such a bad ass. No seriously, I am. At least I can style myself that way… Everything print and color on the bottom half is VERY in this season, so how could I resist these silk leopard drawstring pants? I couldn’t.

 I picked these up while I was in Chicago at Nordstrom Rack. They are Vince Camuto and they are comfy as hell. How could they not be, they look like stylish pajamas. Anyone can wear these if they have the confidence.

They key to styling them is that they have to be the ONLY focal point of your look. Meaning, everything else you have on has to be basic in pattern and neutral in color. You can play with textures and materials like I did with the leather bomber from Loehmann’s. Add crazy accessories if you need a little more pop like I always do. This is actually one necklace with 5 strands from an antique shop. You too can be a bad ass if you follow these rules.

Macy’s Fashion Show

This past week I had the honor of styling my first Macy’s fashion show highlighting some of the hottest fall fashions and winter warm styles. I traveled all the way out to the Staten Island Mall (which can be quite a trek from Queens:). I am wearing Rachael Roy, which I got on sale for $100. I love the silhouette because it makes everyone look smaller with that type of paneling. Stella McCartney has also designed pieces like this, which I think is a definite must have item for the upcoming holidays!
The plum jumpsuit seen in the photo below is also Rachel Roy. This is a great example of a color that is really hot right now.
My headshot on the sign is still rockin my “paid for” long hair. Always fun to have a “billboard” in your honor!
 
Stay tuned to keep up with the latest fall trends!
