Fashionable Fall Satchels and Totes

Fashion designers recognize that with fall we need more space in our bags, for school, work, and a host of other activities that we are involved in from day to day. More and more very chic and fashionable satchels and totes are available for all of our carrying needs. I love that you can find a larger tote or satchel in just every about every style out there, so no matter if you like plain, printed, embellished or sparkly, there is a bag for you! Lets start with the Oryany ‘Gwen – Vintage North/South’ Crossbody Satchel. This is perfect for someone who prefers a more plain style, but with all the details and different options for carrying, this satchel doesn’t disappoint.

I personally love a little embellishment, which is why I absolutely adore the Grazing Roan Bag. With its flowers of differing shapes, braided handle, and perfect muted gray color for fall I can see it being an ideal accessory for my fall and winter fashion choices.

If color is more of your thing, then feast your eyes on the Traced Aureolin Bag. The soft leather in mustard yellow and printed silk bow, really make this bag an attention getter. What I love about this bag is the sweet topstiching, adding even more fringe to this chic bag.

Getting a leg up on Fall Fashion

Fall and winter fashion are all about layers for me, and what is better staple piece and layering item them leggings?? Leggings are so great because they can be worn in a million different ways to make a million different looks. I love leggings tucked into boots, or worn with booties and a tunic length top. Velvet by Graham and Spencer, who are known for their ultra soft and comfortable fabrics have a fabulous pair of knit leggings, the Swoosie. {Wouldn’t love to know where that name came from??} They are the perfect pair to start your looks with, available in dark grey or black.

I don’t know about the rest of you, but is supposed to hit the 90’s this weekend, so I am still very much into summer clothes. Especially summer clothes that will transition into fall and winter outfits. Enter the Lace Trim Stripe Tank by Collective Concepts, it is obviously perfect for summer just by itself. But imagine it with a coordinating  color long sleeve shirt underneath it for fall, and a cropped leather jacket on top for winter, so chic!

Another great piece for layering, is an open cardigan. I love to wear an open cardigan with leggings, because then I can wear a shorter shirt and the open cardigan is long enough to cover my behind. The Cotton Bamboo Cardigan by Splendid is great because is has short sleeves, making it perfect for layering and lasting though all the seasons.

So enjoy the weather where ever you are and whatever it is and remember layering pieces are perfect now and perfect later. It all starts with the perfect pair of leggings!

Fall Trend: Rose Gold Watches

With new fall fashion in stores, there is also fabulous fall accessories. One trend that celebrities have picked up is rose gold watches. Rose gold is a beautiful color that is more flattering then silver or gold for most skin types. I love how versatile rose gold is, complementing all different types of jewelry. The ultra fashionable Mary Kate Olsen is showing us how rose gold and black can make even a grocery store look like a runway.

Almost every major watch brand has a rose gold watch. The beauties shown below are: Nixon ’42-20′ Chronograph Watch, DKNY Rose Gold Watch, Michael Kors ‘Jet Set Sport – Crystal Set’ Chronograph Watch, Michael Kors Rectangle Case Chronograph Watch, D&G ‘Anchor’ Bracelet Watch.   I personally love the D & G watch with the black face, so chic right?? All of these would be fabulous with the bold looks of the fall 2010 fashion trends.
