Metallics

My newest obsession is metallics. I can never get enough of “shiny things”. Also, with the holidays fast approaching, adding a little sparkle to your look is always a win-win situation. For a subtle approach try a metallic manicure or dress up your mini iPad with a metallic case. If you’re feeling bold, go with a statement dress or shoes. Most importantly, wear a smile because your smile should be the shiniest statement piece you wear.

Black, White & Gray Plaid

Lately, I’ve been drawn to wearing a lot of black. In fact, I think I wore black jeans in different styles at least three times last week. This week’s trend will definitely lighten up my wardrobe mood by adding white and gray in plaid. Nothing other than plaid best describes fall and this color palette is classic. A subtle way to add plaid to your look is by accessorizing with a handbag or scarf – functional and cute. To make a statement, I suggest a great coat or shirt with a basic bottom.
