Fall 2016: Je Ne Sais Quoi Style

I hope you don’t feel like this is nameless, faceless fashion. But life and work have conspired against a photo shoot with moi just now. Unless you have been in a hardcore retreat from reality, you know that almost every retailer is big into collaboration  with the unexpected, the iconic, the high style.

This Fall, Uniqlo has scored a home run (Yay Cubs!) with Ines de la Fressange. In her modeling hayday, IDLF was on every cover, in every editorial, Karl Lagerfeld’s muse. It’s so refreshing that she’s grown up and gone on to do her own thing; i.e., many things. I absolutely love this collection and had no hesitation in indulging. For me, it was her sweaters. They are so high quality but with a super affordable price point.

Fall 2016: If the Shoe fits…

Each new season gives us a reason to clean out the old (consign, donate, give to a friend, all of the above) and refresh with the new. I haven’t yet fully switched over my closet from spring/summer to fall/winter as the weather keeps seesawing, but I do try to stick to the rule of however much comes in an equal number must go out.
