Phillip Lim fringe dress.

Phillip Lim fringe dress.

I know, I know. There’s still a lot of lace out there and it’s a lovely way to cover your arms if you don’t want to go sleeveless, but like I said last month, it’s tired and cliché. Everyone has that royal blue dress with the see-thru lace over a matching colored slip. So, let me suggest one of my favorite looks for the all-daunting upcoming holiday season–something literally kicky with enough variation in style that people won’t notice if more than one of you is wearing it. Try a pretty metallic dress with a steely fringe, or a simple Phillip Lim black cocktail dress with a feathery fringe. It’s an especially good look if you’ve got good legs and even better if you want to distract from your arms. Also, it’s a way to minimize accessories as the fringe is an accessory itself. I saw a really cute black Milly dress at Nieman’s with a sweet fringe or, your bank account permitting, you can go upscale with a Chanel fringe. Here are a couple of suggested designs. I’m partial to the cowboy look myself, but that’s just my thing.

The sight of mums and pumpkins at the grocery store makes me absolutely giddy. This is also my favorite time to cook – the markets are bursting with the bounty of the harvest and the cool evenings make it ok to crank up the oven. That smoky old grill you’ve been using all summer is tired and ain’t got nothin’ on the beautiful roasts and casseroles that fill your home with amazing aromas.

Gather ‘round ladies and gents!

I spy with my little eye a bit of snow in the forecast for this weekend. Actually more like snow, sleet, rain, winter mix, etc.  Now take a look in your closet. What are you planning on wearing? Those canvas shoes? Yeah right! The snow boots that have followed you since your mom gave them to you in high school and will probably out live you in the impending apocalypse? Ugh.

While the frightful weather keeps you shacked up and snuggled on the couch watching styleboston, we want to have you all bundled up for when you finally have to shovel… or make the trek out of the house to replenish your supply of Bailey’s for warm beverages.
