First day of Intermezzo

It's hotter than hot on the streets of New York today.  I was almost glad to be freezing inside the Javtis Center.  Most of the vendors were showing their holiday and resort collections, which would be perfect to have in the stores right now!  But you won't be seeing this until January 2012. 

French Connection was lovely.  They really expanded their stripe collection - which we all love.  Color trend - mustard, melon, rust, burgundy, navy.

This was part of the holiday collection at Free People.  I saw a lot of cropped sweaters, loose knits, and fitted dresses here.  We've been layering the boxy sweaters over the fitted dresses and slips all summer.  Looks like it will continue into the fall.  They also had some great flocked velvet bras and knit wraps/capes.

New York City bound

It's going to be HOT, HOT, HOT in New York this weekend.  I decided to pack most of my maxi dresses and a variety of shoe heights.  It's always so tough to decide on what to bring because it's so sticky on the street and freezing in the trade shows.  Please also note the lack of black...I'm trying to bring some color in my wardrobe.

These will satisfy my red pant lusting.  Yes - please!

Fall shows

I'll be in New York in a week and the outfit planning has begun.  The weather will be way to warm for a suit but how awesome is this hot pink number?  I'm dying to get some red high waisted or wide leg pants.  But hot pink could be an option.
Something like this would be more appropriate.  The shoe choice is the most critical.  Pounding the pavement, in the heat, really can make you uncomfortable if you go for a crazy shoe.  
I will definitely bring my Pour la Victoire sandals and maybe my new Jimmy Choo's that I got as an early birthday present (thanks Mom!).

Seasons change

Here we are in the middle of summer and look what comes in...fall clothes.  I know I shouldn't be surprised, I am the one who ordered these things.  It's just so hard to think about - I mean it's finally warm!  

On the bright side, there are some super pretty dresses from Jack.  You can see the prints on the left.  You can wear this now and then add tights for fall!  I'm off to enjoy the warm summer evening.  You should too!
