By now, you’ve probably heard that we are experiencing an extremely warm winter here in New York. It’s been about 65 degrees and I am praying that it stays that way! In honor of this beautiful weather, I decided to try those impractical-looking hot pants you’ve seen on the runway for the fall/winter? I first spotted them in Marc Jacob’s Fall 2013 fashion show (with the giant sun below) and thought they were fabulous but in that snow, I just didn’t see it happening.
Well, I love these Marc Jacobs hot pants and you can pair them with those see-through skirts to make a bold statement. Not for the faint of heart but absolutely fabulous.

So as Fashion Month is upon us I have gotten my calendar together and have to just put together those outfits. My closet is full of clothes and shoes and bags. Some that have hardly ever been worn. Some are my ‘faves’ and well, are in need of retirement. Rummaging through my closet became a sort of fun shopping experience. It was like my clothes and I became re-acquainted after some time. I pulled out that amazing winter fur vest and actually started to get excited for cooler weather.
I also began to realize that although there is much to do about ‘fall’ this and that. Fall just isn’t here yet. And that’s why they have pre-fall. 🙂 Anyway, I came across this amazing pre-fall Herve Leger number inspired by African prints. It’s too much like a Herve skirt from a few years back so I’m not going for it but it surely is beautiful.
By the way, have you seen the fashion shop? It’s updated.
All in all, since it’s still about 90 degrees outside this is the perfect time to catch some pre-fall fashion and sales!
Have you been looking? You absolutely must check out these sales. Peep the list. Everyone seems to be having one.
- Nordstrom is having an end-of-summer clearance
- Forzieri is having a warehouse sale (great accessories there). They also have a 20% code for new Fall stuff
- Boutique1 has some cute shorts and bikinis on sale
- Rag & Bone is having a great sale. Not to mention this great palm tree shirt. If it doesn’t scream summer, I don’t know what does.
Happy shopping and let’s enjoy the last days of summer.

So I stumbled upon a few new furry fall finds. I can’t believe summer is almost over, can you? Well, we only have a month or so and September and that cool breeze will be back before you know it. Time is racing!
Anyway, I am really into this new Stella Jean faux fur vest. It looks like the perfect throw over to beat the breeze in the fall.
I’m also really into these Pierre Hardy purple leather, fur and snakeskin sneakers. They are a great way to make a major street style statement.
Last but not least, this Rochas Red Mohair and Calf Leather Zip Clutch will keep your hands warm in the Fall.
All of these are more are available in the Fashion Shop! Check it out and make sure to enjoy these last days of summer!
