3 Things to Treat Yourself to This Season

Having excellent taste is both a blessing and a curse.   It’s a blessing because you always look great and pick out the perfect gifts for everyone.  When it comes to getting and gifting the latest fashions in Holiday 2011, it’s important to treat others the way you want to be treated which means getting yourself a few end of the year essentials.  Not only will they make you look fabulous, you will know exactly what to get your friends and family this holiday season based on which pieces they compliment.  

The first must-have is an infinity scarf which you can go a lot of different ways with.  It can be paired with a peacoat for the outdoors or a sweater for the indoors.  Wool for a casual day or sequins for a dressier look.  You’re going to be seeing a lot of sequins this holiday season.

Right now it’s all about glamour. Therefore, it’s all about sequins.  I’m always thankful to have a good sequin shirt when I’m going to an event that’s dressy, but not too dressy.  They can really help you stand out at a party.

During the winter months, I live in sweater dresses, leggings, and boots. As does every other girl in New York, but it’s fabulous so I don’t care. Why not switch it up a little bit with one of these adorable sweater skirts?

What’s Hot for Fall 2011

Today, after feeling a refreshing chill in the September air, I bailed my stylish boots out of boot jail in the back of my closet where they had served time this summer when it was too warm to wear them.  Now I can’t wait to layer them with leggings and skinny jeans as the leaves change color.

Here is a list of the hot items this season that I can’t wait to break out in the cold weather:

Aspiring Socialite Tee: In case you haven’t heard or didn’t see it on the sidebar, I have just come out with a line of Aspiring Socialite Tees that I can’t wait to pair with jeans and a matching cardigan this fall.  They are available in women’s, men’s, and kids’.  Yes, this is a shameless plug.

Knit Sweaters Crochet Style: When the temperature goes down, sweaters are always in style.  But, this year I’ve been seeing a lot of lacy style sweaters.  Cropped sweaters also seem to be coming back in.

Sweater Dresses: Are so much fun with a pair of cute boots.  They are great for work or play.

Sequins and Shine: It isn’t just the holiday dresses that will be sparkling this season, sparkles are everywhere.  Sequin blazers are going to be huge.

Lace Up Boots: Many women’s shoes are mirroring men’s shoe styles.  Boots inspired by men’s work boots are a fall staple.  I have a also been seeing a lot of western style boots again this fall season.

Missoni for Target Throw: I can’t think of anything better than curling up to your favorite show surrounded by a warm and stylish Missoni blanket.

Colored Jeans: By the end of this season, I guarantee that I will be the proud owner of a pair of purple jeans.

Plaid Shirts are Back: Break out your plaid button-ups again because this style is sticking around for another season.
