Summer is the prime time for Holiday and Fall Previews. It’s ironic how somehow they all seem to land on the hottest days of the year leaving us bloggers and editors going through winter coats and sweaters in sundresses and sandals. At the Fall/Holiday 2013 Preview of American Rag and barIII that was certainly the case. While American Rag has a fun California appeal that had me picking out outfits for the next Coachella festival, barIII is a bit more Upper East Side and featured some amazing statement necklaces set to hit stores in the next few months. I’m particularly excited about American Rag’s new premium denim line making its debut this fall. The fit is absolutely amazing and at around $60 a pair, also incredibly affordable. BarIII also has its share of affordable pieces. All of the jewelry is priced well under $100. Both lines are exclusive to Macy’s.
No, this isn’t my new apartment, but I really wish it was! It’s barIII’s home collection for fall.
Love the detail in this Holiday sweater by American Rag.
Getting custom nail art by Miss Pop Nails was by far the highlight of my day!
Jewelry always makes the perfect gift. Speaking of gifts, there’s nothing like Christmas in (almost) July! Since in fashion it’s our job to stay at least six months ahead, my calendar is quickly filling up with holiday preview events. This week, I previewed Kensie’s Holiday 2013 jewelry line. The bold colors and dainty gold pieces make both excellent gifts and stunning holiday party accessories.
Tis the season for holiday dress previews. The sparkles lighting up the showrooms have everyone asking what will the socialites wear to the ball this fall? Even if this modern-day aspiring Cinderella never makes it to a society ball this season, assuming of course that they still hold balls, I got to have an Adrianna Papell dress. As I learned on my lunchtime visit to the Adrianna Papell showroom this week, the Adrianna Papell family is divided into five divisions: Adrianna Papell (versatile more casual day and evening outfits,) Adrianna Papell Evening (high-styled formal eveningwear,) Aidan Mattox (sexy glam evening gowns,) Adrianna Papell For E! Live From the Red Carpet (old Hollywood glam,) and Hailey Logan (an affordable juniors line perfect for the prom.)
You can find these exquisite designs at my favorite socialite hang outs including Bloomingdales, Nordstrom, and Lord & Taylor. Every socialite has a soft spot for red carpet style. Every girl can shine like a socialite in Adrianna Papell For E! Live From the Red Carpet with the line’s classic Hollywood glamour full of ruffles, sparkles, and plunging necklines. Plus, since Joan Rivers is on the E! payroll, anyone wearing anything from Adrianna Papell’s Red Carpet line is bound to to get a rave review from the Fashion Police. Not that you need any sort of leverage to get best-dressed in these chic dresses.

All the pretty dresses
This picture hangs outside the Adrianna Papell showroom and it is so glam. I especially love the chandelier, it reminds me of my logo. So socialite!
