When Sophie (my gorgeous friend and Theta sister) asked me to be a part of her blog Angel Food Style's Friday Five series I was delighted. She asked me some very fun questions (see for yourself!) and had me share a few of my Fall must haves.

When Denise, the very talented designer behind Courtesan, invited me to her showroom, I immediately fell in love with these colorful, Swarovski crystal bracelets. Aren't they fun?! Denise was sweet enough to give me three of these bracelets, and then made me the larger bracelet (shown in the picture) with my favorite fall colors; navy, black, and burgundy. Enter to win a bracelet of your own! Simply...

These velvet slippers from Zara were such a steal ($35.90!) I picked them up on Friday at the Zara on 55th and 5th (in my opinion, the best Zara in NYC) and I haven't stopped wearing them since.
BCBG Generation silk shorts (similar), Haute Hippie blouse, Zara velvet slippers, YSL purse, Nordstrom BP sunglasses, Michael Kors watch, a.v. max gold link bracelet (similar),
Courtesan studio bracelet (stay tuned I'm giving one away this week!)
I found this picture and snippet about Argentina via elle.com. "Why It's Worth the Airfare: You love Europe but you're in the mood for something a little sexier? Buenos Aires is the perfect destination, sometimes referred to as "Paris of the Pampas." The fusion of European and Latin influences mean you can go to the opera and then drink sangria and dance tango in the streets until dawn." ...12 days and counting 'til my trip! Make sure to like my Facebook page - I'll be uploading pictures throughout the week!

I'm over at Dr. Jart+'s blog today talking about my life essentials. I just started using this Dr. Jart+ lotion and love it. It's super lightweight and smells divine so it's perfect to put on right before bed. Check out my guest post here!

I spent today shopping at some of my favorite Upper East Side stores; Scoop, Intermix, Bergdorfs, and Wink. I spotted these Dolce Vita oxfords at Wink and knew I had to have 'em. They didn't have my size so I ordered them online here!

Today was the first day of Fall, but it was hot and humid so I didn't feel like wearing Fall attire at all. I pulled out some of my favorite pieces from summer instead - my Pour La Victoire wedges and J.Crew panama hat. I didn't get to wear this hat as much as I would have liked this summer, so I'm going to bring it on my trip to Argentina in 2 weeks!
I came across this bedroom on one of my new favorite design blogs; Amber Interiors. I love everything in it - the moroccan blanket, Sheesha pillows (I still need one for my bed!), ikat curtains, and bamboo roman shades all work beautifully together. In addition to her blog, Amber runs a wonderful online shop filled with chic pillows like this pink ikat silk pillow. I hope you all have a lovely Saturday - I'm heading to Bergdorfs for lunch! x

I'm over at a very fabulous blog today - Tiffany Leigh Interior Design - sharing one of my favorite pieces of furniture. I love that Tiffany does this series - it's always fun to get a glimpse into fellow blogger's homes! Tiffany is extremely talented and always posting beautiful pictures of interiors. You can see my post here!

Lately, people have been asking me what I think the "it" color for this season is, and in my opinion, the "it" color is burgundy. I love that burgundy mixes beautifully with black, brown, grey, dark green, and cream. You will definitely be seeing me in lots of burgundy this Fall!
It was so hard to choose my favorite dresses from the Spring 2013 shows - there were so many beautiful ones! I chose these three because they are timeless, elegant, and flattering. I could easily see myself in every single one.

Jumpsuits and pantsuits were all over the runway this past week. This Elizabeth and James one immediately caught my eye. The cut is so flattering and it's one of those staple pieces that you can dress up or dress down - I need it!

I can't believe NYFW is over - what a fun week it was! Here are some of my favorite casual looks from the Spring 2013 collections.

You will not believe where these shorts are from. Wet Seal! I know, crazy right? I've been trying to wear as many of my favorite summer pieces as possible - pretty soon it will be too cold to go outside without a jacket! Speaking of jackets, have you seen this jacket in dark green from J.Crew? Very military chic and a definite Fall must have.
A bistro table is the perfect kind of table for a small space. I just bought an amazing bistro table for my apartment at the Shabby Chic store on Mercer Street. It's not too big and not too small. I love the rustic/vintage look of it against my exposed brick wall (pictures to come!) I need to go back and pick up these chairs, aren't they great?!

How perfect is this picture? It's the view from the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 show.

If you follow me on Pinterest, then you've probably noticed that I've been updating my boards and just created a new board called "Fashion Musts". There are so many things I absolutely need for Fall! Here are a few things I have to have.

Zac Posen's Spring 2013 collection is pure perfection. The details, colors, and silks he chose were even more incredible in person (hard to believe, I know). If only I had somewhere to wear that stunning mint green dress - my favorite piece from the collection.
The highlight of my life was last night at Zac Posen. I had the honor of sitting in the second row, across from Andre Leon Talley. I bumped into Martha Stewart and admired Taylor Tomasi Hill's flawlessness from 4 feet away. I was on cloud nine before the show even started, and then Naomi Campbell came down the runway - I just about died. Other legendary models followed; Karolina Kurkova, Coco Rocha, and Hilary Rhoda just to name a few. The collection was absolutely breathtaking - extremely glamorous and feminine - so my style. Visit my Facebook page to see pictures from the show!

See by Chloe's Spring 2013 collection is dreamy. The sumptuous silks and vibrant colors are beyond amazing. I can see myself wearing each and every one of these pieces. Which look is your favorite?
Fashion Week is both exciting and stressful. The pressure is on to always look your best! This is my third Fashion Week and I feel like I finally have a good beauty routine down. Here are some of my must have products.
1. Nubra / an adhesive, barely there bra that is an absolute lifesaver for backless dresses
2. Double sided tape / perfect for avoiding a fashion emergency - it holds a low cut top together
3. Clear bandaids / for those painful blisters that everyone gets during Fashion Week
4. Garnier Fructis anti-humidity hairspray / works like a charm for keeping hair in place
5. Biore cleansing strips / when you have serious blackheads and don't have time for a facial
6. Crest white strips / because who doesn't want white teeth?
7. Mac lipgloss in C-thru / the only lipgloss I use
8. Kiehl's ultra facial cream / the ultimate moisturizer
9. Clean & Clear oil absorbing sheets / ideal for getting rid of forehead shine

The Charlotte Ronson show last night was really amazing. You can see the full collection here. I've been wearing my Zara heels and YSL bag to just about every fashion event this week. You can never go wrong with a simple ankle strap heel and classic black bag...
