It happens every year. August rolls around and instead of enjoying the dog days of summer, I’m plotting my autumn lewk. I love autumn even if it only lasts about three weeks in New York before the blistering cold sets in. It’s cool enough for booties and a light jacket but warm enough for iced coffee. Was that basic? YOLO.
The new arrivals online have caught my eye and so wish lists have been made, outfits are being pinned, and my debit card could be heard whimpering in wallet.
3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Mini Satchel in Military // Mackage Rubie Crossbody // Alexander Wang Emile in Pebbled Black with Rose Gold. Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be – Phillip Lim and Alexander Wang are two of my favorite handbag lines. Sturdy, beautiful, and well-crafted.
You’ve for sure seen this video already but I can’t stop watching it after having seen it at the New York premiere. Stuart Weitzman debuted their newest fashion film called “Made for Walking” starring Kate Moss, the face of the brand’s Fall 2013 campaign.
Shot in central London, Moss sets loose from a traffic jam (something I’ve contemplated doing time and time again) and walks to her destination with Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made for Walking” playing in the background because, duh. For their Fall 2013 collection, Stuart Weitzman unveiled a new collection boots – as seen in the video – that are comfortable and stylish (even if you’re left staring at your closet wondering how to pull off thigh high boots). This fall the brand is also celebrating 20 years with their classic over the knee, 5050 boot. Huzzah!
If you’re feelin’ lucky, enter the #MadeForWalking contest where you can enter to win some amazing prizes like a $750 gift card or a two night trip to New York City, a champagne tour of the Stuart Weitzman showroom and $1500 shoe wardrobe.
FTC Disclosure: I attended the press preview and received a pair of boots as a thank you.

LOOKIE HERE! AN OUTFIT POST! After a hurricane, Nor’easter, and biting winds the weather in NYC has warmed up a bit (we’re talking 63°F in November) – so I had to get all dressed up, natch. A failed attempt at organizing my closet this weekend opened my eyes to the fact that I have a LOT of unworn clothes. Top that with my recent purchases, I’m swimming laps of ASOS, Zara, and J. Crew.
Case in point: this blouse from ASOS I bought in early summer prepping for Autumn (yeah you read that right). I discovered it in the back of my closet, hanging neatly with the tags on. Woman with a problem.
In my last outfit post, I showed you how to glam up your game day outfit, courtesy of Nordstrom Rack, and this time it’s all about the day-to-night look. This is something that I can talk about for DAYS because I’m someone who works in an office setting (super casual) but also tries to have a social life. Friends are constantly texting/emailing me requesting a “quick” bite to eat that turns into dinner with a large group followed by gossip and aimlessly wandering the city.
What’s my go-to look? A simple but engaging dress, kickass amazing pair of heels, and an update in makeup – in this case a deep red lip. Of course, you can always add accessories (bangles are highly recommended and you can pick them up in sets at Nordstrom Rack).

These shoes were an EPIC find btw! The minute I saw them, I disregarded my typical size nine shoe size and tried on the ten. Luckily they fit :). They’re the exact look I had been pinning away last Spring during the Fall fashion shows (got that?) and I’m thrilled to have found a chic loafer (so on trend) at such an affordable price. Plus, the rubbery sole makes eat easy to walk in – day or night. You like?
