{outfit} A Taste of Fall

This past weekend we were given a taste of Fall with cooler temperatures so I decided to wear one of my favorite lighter sweaters. I got so many great accessories during fashion week and find myself wearing them every day, so don't be surprised if you see them quite a bit.  I wore this outfit to check out the Altuzarra for Target collection. I was bad and bought 6 things (2 in store, 4 online.) When the online order arrives I'll choose a couple things to keep, if what I bought online doesn't fit it will be that much easier to decide, haha.  I wasn't expecting the cooler weather to last, so I was pleasantly surprised to find that Fall is finally here to stay!

{daily inspiration} NYFW Favorites

Rather than doing a ton of posts featuring collections from New York Fashion Week like I usually do, I decided to be SUPER picky and just share some favorites from the whole week. Will hopefully do the same for the other cities. I went through as many collections as possible but there are far too many to go through them all. Ha ha.

{outfit} Movado & Lucky Magazine Arm Candy Party

Here's my last fashion week outfit! I only went to 3 events because I didn't want to have to keep going back and forth to the city, I'm so lazy! This outfit is from the Lucky Magazine x Movado Watch party! We were able to pick out a new Movado Bold watch and style it with bracelets from Lucky's "bracelet bar"! I chose this beautiful Rose Gold Bangle Bracelet Watch and styled it with some pink/gold/burgundy bracelets.  It will definitely be appearing in many outfit posts to come!  We were also able to get manicures and accent nails to go with our watches! I got mine painted in a nice navy blue with silver accents with crystals! So cute!

By the time we got around to taking photos it was getting a bit dark and my makeup and hair had severely lessened in quality. Luckily I took some outfit photos before leaving in the afternoon, so you get the benefit of both! Thanks to Jackie for the pictures in the street!

And a couple party snaps! It was dark inside so most of my shots didn't come out well.

Movado also sent over this video featuring Kerry Washington, who has been working with the brand for NINE years. The 'Modern Ahead of its Time' campaign was shot by renowned fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski and styled by celebrity stylist Erin Walsh. The video features the new women’s Movado Sapphire collection.

"Taking its inspiration from the original Sapphire created in the late 1970’s to early 1980’s, Movado went back to its historically rich archives and restyled one of the first watches ever made that incorporates a sleek edge-to-edge crystal and bezel-free case. For 2014, the design has been reimagined with a jewelry-look and feel that epitomizes femininity and sensuality in a manner that is consistent with Movado’s modern design aesthetic."

{daily inspiration} Emma Stone Does Black and White

Emma Stone has been stepping out in a lot (well, 3) of black and white outfits recently! Below are three gorgeous looks I would love to recreate.  How amazing are the Proenza Schouler pants in the first look?! They aren't online yet so sadly I don't know how much they are (not that I could afford them anyhow.)

{outfit} Storefront x RePopRoom Brunch

Here is my second New York Fashion Week outfit! I wore this to the Storefront X RePopRoom "Fashion That Pops" Champagne Brunch!  I went with Lydia and my friend Alyssa joined us as my plus one!  We were invited by Marrin Costello to see her amazing new "Stoned" jewelry collection.  I cannot WAIT for the collection to be avaiable, there are so many beautiful necklaces and rings I want. Since Marrin is super awesome, she let me pre-order the Pearl Crescent Necklace ($78, seen below) so I could enjoy it before it's officially released!

I've had this dress for almost 4 years and it's the first time I've had Lydia take pictures of it! Sheesh...took me long enough! She always makes pieces look 10x more amazing than when I take my own photos. It's magic.  Despite how long I've had it, it's only been given a dedicated outfit post 3 times including this one (one, two)! (And appeared in a ton of my weekly outfit roundups, but that's not the same.)

Dress: Marc by Marc Jacobs, Sandals: Sam Edelman c/o ThredUp, Bag: Etienne Aigner (thrifted), Necklace: Bubu Ruby (etsy), Rings c/o Marrin Costello, Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Gilt), Sunglasses c/o GlassesShop

And a few photos of Marrin's new pieces which will be released online later this month!
