Totally Tweedy

I love fall. I’m sad to see the warm weather go, but with a little crisper air, I get excited for an array of warmer clothes that can now be comfortably worn. Tweed jackets and accessories are popping up all over the place, and not just in the saddle. This distinctively English country wear has been transformed into an array of high end design and simple accessories.

I love the way that Ralph Lauren mixed a traditional tweed jacket with some more boho dresses and western wear. Chanel always has tweed, but I love the more relaxed pant with the matching cross body bag (Spring 2015, but can be worn in fall with warmer shoes and a long sleeve under the jacket)…even traditionally minimalist Calvin Klein joined the tweed parade this fall.

Drag out your old tweed jacket and mix it up, or if you need one, here are some fun options:

On a whimsical note, tweed is used to create these fun accessories (how adorable is that doggie collar??):

Cashmere, leather and fur, oh my!

I know that the RTW Spring 2014 shows just wrapped, however, I’m still trying to process RTW Fall 2013. I absolutely LOVE fall/winter clothes and just melt at the sight of an amazing cashmere wrap. This fall, there are almost too many luscious looks to list, however, I’m going to give it my best shot.

Texture upon texture upon texture.  Wovens with knits, plaids with stripes and sparkles on fur. This is truly an equal opportunity fall fashion season, and I LOVE it. My challenge is finding believable knock offs because I can’t even imagine the price tags on some of these pieces.

Moncler deserves a slideshow all its own. Absolutely sumptuous….

Now all I need is to move to the Arctic Circle so I can justify some of these pieces.
