Transition Time Tips

 

 The summer heat is on full blast. Yet, walk into any store and boom! Fall fashions front and center have you sweating (well, I’m speaking for myself). The ‘September Issues’ are out and fall trend forecasts were announced before anyone could say Memorial Day. So why do I always struggle buying that wool car coat or suede ankle booties this time of year? Perhaps it’s admitting to myself that summer is fleeting. Maybe, it’s my refusal to think about anything remotely having to do with snow. Recently, I was able to commit to cold weather wear. A camel cape coat that, if timed perfectly, I will wear exactly 4.5 times before it's too cold to be useful anymore. Damn to the sensible stye! I also picked up a cream long sleeve sweater. For me, that piece is a yearly staple. It never fails that I completely trash it by living in it for an entire season. I also purchased a Veronica Beard Jacket that was cream and camel which I’ve already decided must come out to play as soon at we hit 60 degrees!

 

How to solve the dilemma of what to buy now before what you want is sold out by those early bird shoppers? The advice I’m taking myself is definitely grab what you missed out on last year. I searched for tan leather knee high boots but missed the window by October. Then, pick a trend or two you are ‘feeling’ this fall and grab a select piece. When the cool kids go back to school you too will look instantly current!  Pair that trend with a fall go-to (for me that cream knit)! Then boom! You will be over the transition hump!

White When?

So excited to wear these new pumps! They are actually comfortable too.

When can I wear? When are you wearing white shoes? I think we need a few 60 degree days, but then no-holds-barred. Let's get them out gals!

Super Bowl Style

I love attending Super Bowl parties. I plan to be as sporty as I can in my attire AND my hair. I'm loving this side pony as it's fresh and easy. I'll be sporting it on episode 102 Saturday night before the big game. For added flair throw in some extensions- and YOU are belle of the ball... Or shall I say pigskin?

LBD step aside… meet the LWD

I think the idea of winter white is just so killer. We all have our go to little black dresses so let’s invest in a stunning white hot number. What I like about this Cushnie et Ochs is that it’s showing skin but in the right places… if you know what I mean. You can rock it over cocktails with your gal pals or at an elegant dinner with your boyfriend’s parents. Get yourself a LWD. With nude pumps or a glitzy statement shoe you will be the brightest star in the room- I guarantee it.

Slash Style

What does one wear to interview a rock legend? Black and leather seemed like a safe bet. My exclusive one on one with Slash airs in the premiere episode of Bianca Unanchored (Saturday 1/24 11:35 p.m. WCVB WMUR WMTW).  The fringe skirt can be found at Intermix. Black sharpie for body art is the only accessory needed.
