Style Tip: Black & White Allegri Trenches for Transitional Seasons


This spring season is one of fashion extremes.  While black and white combinations are all the rage, so are bright sorbet colors on the opposite side of the spectrum.  A great way to embrace this black and white trend is with these sleek belted black and white trenches by Allegri.  These paper thin coats crafted with high-tech fabrics are perfect for transitional seasons such as spring and fall when the weather is for lack of a better word, bipolar.

Nicole Miller Fall 2013 Inspiration & Runway Preview


This Friday February 8th at 6:00 p.m. I will be descending upon Lincoln Center to view Nicole Miller‘s Fall ’13 collection on the runway.   The inspiration behind this collection is “Girls Who Dress Like Boys.”  I can’t wait to see these timeless tomboy looks hit the runway complete with menswear-inspired patterns and subdued colors.  As a preview for the show, I was sent these inspirational sketches as a teaser of what’s to come.  Even if you won’t be at Fashion Week, you can still watch the show live with me.  Not only will it be streamed live on Nicole Miller’s website and Facebook page, it will also be streaming live right here on Aspiring Socialite!

Exploring Neons for Fall at T.J.Maxx and Marshalls

Summer trends are staying bright this fall. When T.J.Maxx and Marshalls sent out fashion blogger, Karen Blanchard, of Where Did U Get That to capture the #1 trend taking over the city, she found that showstopping neon shades will be sticking around in full force this fall.  To celebrate neon for fall, T.J.Maxx and Marshalls sent me out to discover fabulous fall neons in their stores.  Here’s what I found:

Love these neon on black Vivienne Tam cardigans.  Neons always go best with dark colors, especially black and navy blue.  These are perfect to layer for fall.

Obsessed with these dark skinny Hudson Jeans taking on the neon trend with bright orange stripes down the sides.  They’d go great with flats or pumps.

Layer your fall neons with cardigans or blazers to make them pop.

Yellow isn’t just for summer.  As the leaves change color, use neon yellow accessories to brighten up your fall wardrobe.

Disclaimer: I was given two T.J. Maxx and Marshalls gift cards. 

Fall Flashback!

I love summer, but I could do without the humidity.  Plus, I really miss wearing boots over jeans or leggings in the comfortably brisk fall air.  So why not make room for a quick fall flashback?  Here I am playing in the New England woods with a dog named Lili.  Can’t wait for Fashion Week in September!
