Mocha Chocolata Ya Ya

Another timeless trend that emerged during this cycle of Fashion Weeks was a love for the color brown in its entire spectrum — from dark chocolate to mocha to buttery honey to creamy camel. I’ve always been drawn to this calming, grounded palette, so I’m pretty pleased to see it come around once again.

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.
