Color Me Fur


This fashion week was all about fur, fur, fur! Either on a hat, a scarf, gloves, and yes, of course jackets! Besides the usual black and camel colored fur, I decided to take a walk on the wild side and purchase a blue fur coat from Ann Taylor LOFT.

Now, you may be thinking I resemble our good ole pal cookie monster, but trust that this coat was a HIT! 

I wore this outfit to the Rock & Republic for Kohls show. I think the coat went quite nice with my silver body con dress and matching tights, gold sequin wedges, and my neon yellow Cambridge Satchel bag! A bit wild, but it definitely turned heads…in a good way!

Gucci sent a nice turquoise fur coat down their runway!

Even Kim thinks it’s appropriate to wear a blue fur jacket in NYC. She wore hers while filming Kim & Kourtney Take New York.

This blue fur creation by the Row is amazing!! Might not be an everyday throw on jacket, but the ad makes it look so appealing!

The guys from Gossip Girl seemed to enjoy the blue fur. They are just as stunning as the coat!

Original Ann Taylor LOFT Gem: $118

Hidden Gem: $29

What do you think about this jacket? Would you dare wear it? Have any colored fur? Are you drooling of the GG hunks?

Walking on Stilts…and Studs


During fashion week, a stylish, unique, bizarre looking shoe is key! Quite a bit of adjectives for a little shoe to fulfill, but it can be done! However, you don’t want your shoes to make your feet ache and wish to chop them off. Some shows require a bit of walking to and from, and forget about getting a cab, because there are so many people trying to get one, you are better off walking to your next destination. Well, the same day Lina bought her Emerald green gem, I found some WILD Sam Edelman Zoyla wedges dangling on the clearance shoe rack at Marshalls. Slipped them on they felt like angels! Didn’t hurt a bit! Just to make sure, I walked around the store shopping for other gems, with them on. Twenty minutes later, still felt like fluffy slippers. I yelled across the store to Lina and told her that they felt wonderful! Pretty sure I even jumped once or twice with excitement.

These 5 1/2 inch, leather studded, cut out, wedge boots were a fabulous addition to my fashion week clothing. I showed off these gems at a Vogue QVC party, the first night we arrived in NYC.

Have a look at the rest of my ensemble! The brightly colored top and jacket, paired with my liquid leggings and studded wedges was a perfect way to start out fashion week.

Quite a few people asked where I got my fabulous wedges and loud and proud I said, “Marshalls!”

These studded gems look just like mine!!

Clockwise: Jeffrey Campbell, Michael Antonia Studio, Givenchy, and of course, Sam Edelman!!

Kim Kardashian and Rachel Bilson love a studded shoe! Kim’s gems are by Ruthie Davis and Rachel’s are by the one and only, Christian Louboutin.

Kim was at the same QVC party we were attending too! I bet she saw my studded gems from afar and longed to know where I got them! Well Kim, if you’re reading this, now you know!

Original Sam Edelman Gem: $225

Hidden Gem: $59.99!!

What do you think of studs? Would you wear a studded wedge? Did you happen to watch the Kardashians on QVC last week? Let us know!
