Fashion Favorites: NYFW Fall 2013
New York Fashion Week Fall 2013 Ready-To-Wear was bursting with leather and fur. From leather leg warmers at Phillip Lim 3.1 to fox fur wraps at Marc Jacobs, I am thinking PETA was working overtime this week. The runways featured amazing outerwear embracing mohair, fur collars and leather detail. Here are a few of my favorite looks from NYFW Fall 2013: BCBG Max Azria/Diane von Furstenberg/Oscar de la Renta/Reed Krakoff/Rachel Zoe

Fashion Favorites: NYFW S/S 2013
Tech-Savvy Fashion: DVF Harper Connect Daybag
Fashion meets function with Diane Von Furstenberg’s Harper Connect Daybag. Perfect for the tech-savvy fashionista, this leather bag has a special built-in compartment that keeps your Tablet or IPad secure.
Harper’s geometric structure and decorative details feels luxurious and professional. Bold brushed-gold hardware, signature turn-lock closure and removable leather tassel makes me weak at the knees. Wear however you like, Harper comes adorned with both a chain shoulder strap with leather links and an optional cross-body strap for style and comfort.
The ultimate designer bag for the girl on-the-go.
Shoe Symmetry: DVF Olivia
There must be some sort of inertia that pulls me towards Diane Von Furstenberg’s new shoe creation each season. The Olivia wedge sandal is my latest obsession.
The architecture of this shoe is crisp and perfectly symmetrical. The wedge design adds comfort and stability. The two-tone feature is subtle and polished and the suede trim provides texture and refinement.
The Olivia is extremely flattering on. The porportions hit just right to lengthen the leg and slim the ankles.
This is a great addition to anyone’s collection, as it can be worn in any season. Paired with a sundress or wide-leg pants, the Olivia will ornament any ensemble.
Weekend Ensemble: Diane von Furstenburg Jhumpa
Keeping with the romper theme, this weekend throw on this Jhumpa by Diane von Furstenberg. This silk jumpsuit is a fun and playful option for weekend festivities.
The golden amber color is novel and exotic. The silk fabric is delicate and feels like butter on the skin. The shape is flowing and comfortable, perfect for a warm day.
Wear the Jhumpa on it’s own with flats or wedges or pair with a silk cardigan and chunky heels. This beautiful burnish color creates a great canvas for accessories. Style with a ton of gold necklaces and/or bracelets or plant a pop of color and with turquoise stones or red-beaded earrings.
Rompers are a versatile one-piece outfit that is great for weekend wear.
Have a wonderful weekend!
