* This post was made in collaboration with Lyst *

I'm sure many of you have heard of Lyst, but for those of you that haven't here is a little lesson. Lyst allows you to follow your favorite brands (and people) so you can see their latest products and add them to 'lysts' which then allow you to receive sale and stock alerts for those items! You can search by designer or category and even specify if you want specific discounts (ex. 20% to 70% off.)

Today I decided to create a Lyst that contains couple looks styled around Michael Kors bags.  For my looks I decided to create some "Winter Warmth" outfits. It's getting very cold out there, but why sacrifice style for warmth, when you can have both!

The first look is styled around this gorgeous Burberry Prorsum coat! Because of it's extreme pattern and textures I decided on a more subdued bag to contrast against the darkness of the rest of the outfit. The fun thing about this jacket is I was able to use non-matching gloves and a hat because they still matched the jacket.

For outfit number two I wanted the bag to do the talking so I chose this gorgeous purple calf-hair bag by Michael Kors. To keep the focus on the bag I created a monochromatic look with all green pieces which work great with the purple/burgundy.

You can create as many lysts as you want and you can even make a "Cover photo" for them to be shown on your Lysts landing page.  You can also share your Lysts with your friends on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr so they can shop your picks! To further add to the fun, you can comment on Lysts with your thoughts!

Day 2 of LuckyFABB was spent shopping in Soho! We started off having brunch at the Crosby Hotel (where I had an awesome celebrity sighting: GEOFFREY RUSH!!!) with Lucky editors and Piperlime. Our first stop after brunch was Piperlime's brand new store, where we were the first ever shoppers! We continued by stopping at Aritzia, Topshop, Kate Spade and Calypso St. Barth. I posted photos from inside the stores on my Facebook because there were too many, check them out!

This was my favorite day in New York by far. I met some new friends; Nikki, Ashley, Bethany, Alexandria, and more! AND I finally had the pleasure of hanging out with Mary in person after following her blog for quite some time, she's awesome!

Top: Made by Grandma, Skirt: Made by Mom, Sandals: Seychelles (DSW) $35, Bag: Chanel, Bracelets c/o 31 Bits, Watch: Michael Kors, Necklace: Vanessa Mooney giveaway, Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) gift card
UPDATE: Yes, this is the same fabric as yesterday's skirt. I had my mom make another with our leftover fabric. This time with the scalloped edge. (we wanted that on the other skirt but it wasn't working out properly) 
We were lucky enough to receive gift cards for Piperlime and Aritzia, so I picked up a pair of Genetic Denim aztec print jeans at Piperlime and some Maison Scotch printed pants and T.Babaton cashmere sweater at Aritzia!

I know we are still in the midst of Summer, but Fall is my favorite season (for Fashion and weather) and tons of Fall trend updates are beginning to appear online.  I, for one, am very happy that the colored/printed/textured jean look is still very much on trend.  Not that it being off-trend would stop me from wearing it. In my case, I am VERY excited to wear my burgundy Current/Elliot leopard print jeans with my new Theyskens' Theory leather jacket!

Shopbop recently posted a lookbook illustrating many of the new denim trends that are emerging for Fall!  I decided to create some cheaper versions of the looks (and linked the actual pieces).  Who else is ready for Fall fashion?

Tip: If you are in the US, head to TJ Maxx and Marshalls for the latest designer jeans for great prices! Last time I went I found giraffe print jeans, lace print jeans and more! (I resisted buying them)

Another lesson learned in this post: when you can't find what you want in womenswear, check the men's section!

I have been seeing designer doppelgangers everywhere the past few days! These next 3 were all found at TopShop! Unfortunately the Miu Miu's and Chloé's are no longer available. Fortunately, they could show up on The Outnet in a few months, so keep your eyes peeled!  Which ones do you prefer, designer or doppelganger?
Miu Miu Glitter-finished leather and calf hair pumps - $650
Topshop Jamaica Curve Heel Glitz Shoes- $110
I actually prefer the Topshop ones here, but only because the calf-hair on the Miu Mius is a bit odd. They had them at SAKS in NYC when I met Jamie-Lee over the summer and I almost bought them, but resisted.

Chloé Watersnake and patent-leather pumps - $650
Topshop Spector Contrast Back Platforms - $124
Okay, so the print switched places for these shoes but they have the same feeling and that's all that really matters. There were a few versions of these Chloe's but these brown ones were my favorites.

Yves Saint Laurent Opyum suede pumps - $665
Topshop Gilmore Contrast Toe Points - $120
In this case I prefer the muted color Yves Saint Laurent a lot more than the Topshop, but only because I like muted colors (and the colors are perfection!) But I know a lot of you girls like bright colors so I included these as well!

I am still obsessed with the YSL's but $665 i a bit too much for me to spend...maybe if they go on sale. [Hopefully this doesn't become a repeat of the Miu Miu leopard sandal debacle & I can't stop thinking about them...]
