Monday Madness: Gwen Stefani

Got the Monday blues? Take a que from Gwen and turn that frown upside down. Gwen looks great during her recent performance at the Black Ball concert benefiting Keep a Child Alive. Navy is a big trend for fall and I expecially love her dress. One day, I too will be able to have Lanvin clothes given to ME for my red carpet appearances....

Styling Tip: Blanket Wraps

Calypso: Virginia Coat

What are blanket wraps?

A voluminous and cozy alternate to sweater coats. They are the perfect accessory in between seasons; when it's chilly out but not exactly cold. A slender belt will keep them closed but still maintain their streamlined shape.

How do I wear them?

Think light thin layers. Try a thin scoop neck sweater or tee paired with a nice merino wool scarf.

But I'm cold all the time! Will blanket wraps really provide the warmth I need?

Absolutely! To get the warmth you desire, try selecting heavier fabrics like cashmere or wool. You could also add a long sleeve sweater for an extra layer of warmth.

Where can get my hands on these beauties?

Most of your favorite retailers (i.e. Macy's, Nordstrom) will have them in stock this fall. I've also highlighted some of my favorites below.

Halloween's on the Horizon

Adult Batgirl Costume

Although our friends at Macy's would like us to forget about Halloween and Thanksgiving & skip right to Christmas, I like to take it one holiday at a time. Halloween is the one holiday every year that gives me an excuse to live out my childhood fantasties. I've always loved Batman, truth be told, he's one of the only reasons why I watch the Justice League. In this costume, I'd definitely give Yvonne Craig a run for her money and maybe pick up a couple of treats along the way.
