Early Fall Shopping Guide

September 21, 2011

Step aside summertime, there’s a new season in town!

Is your wardrobe ready for fall? If not, it’s time to start construction on your fall wardrobe. Ask yourself, what do I need?…what do I want?…what special business and social events do I have coming up? This task doesn’t have to be a big deal! No need to take a complete inventory of what’s already in your closet. Just jot down a few trends you like, then think about how you might incorporate them into your wardrobe. Example: Would animal prints work best as a nights out accessory or would you use this favored trend as a dress or a sweater at your next speaking engagement or conference? Prepare your shopping list before you hit the stores so you make economical purchases but still build yourself a stunning and effective fall/winter wardrobe.

Rest assured, I’ve taken the liberty of getting you started by showcasing a few of my favorite on-trend finds so far this season. I start with a long gold-tone pendant necklace I want need. This one is super versatile. Its chain is discreet and won’t overpower any outfit, yet it’s still a noticeable contemporary fashion accessory. I want also need Diane von Furstenberg’s inventive Harper Connect handbag. Now I can take my iPad, a high-tech gadget I find myself using more and more, with me everywhere I go. “Oh!”, and I truly n-e-e-d Bella Pelle’s new Mighty Infusion, a breakthrough anti-aging, skin boosting serum. Shelley always makes the most incredible results-oriented products; I whole-heartedly trust her brand. I know I need a new pair of black trousers, but this plaid pair are still professional looking and so much more fun! If anyone can make my backside look good in a pair of plaid pants, it’s Trina Turk – her tailoring is exquisite.
