On my List

A denim jumpsuit is one of the top items on my "wants" list. I say "A" as in one, but I would really like more. A light weight chambray, both short and long for the warmer days and the heavier denim for fall and winter. I love it's versatility.....the styling possibilities are endless! Another preference is a loose fit. I find those the most flattering my tastes. I've featured a few favorites.

Fall Footwear Trend: Origami-inspired

Luxury labels turn to the ancient art of origami to animate fall ’14 footwear shapes. These high-end looks riff on the theme with innovative angles, strategically placed creases and lots of luxe, sculptural detailing. (WWD)

Versus Versace + Superga

Love, love, love these sneakers! Read on for more from MTV UK.

Two distinctively Italian brands, Versus Versace and Superga, have announced a collaboration that will see their unique styles merge to create one great set of trainers. The partnership is kicking of with special edition Superga 2750 model sneakers that use the elaborate print of the Versus Versace AW14 collection.

The print is said to symbolise the “rebellious new style” of Versus Versace, and the crazy pattern teamed with the classic design of the shoe is certainly something we’re lusting over. With Versus Versace having previous collaborations with J.W. Anderson and M.I.A. to their name, and Superga having worked with Suki Waterhouse and blogger The Man Repeller in the past, the pair have certainly got some experience of creating successful partnerships. The collaborative kicks will be available online in Europe from June 20th and worldwide in Versus Versace and Superga stores from June 29th.

Street Style: The Women of Men's Fashion Week

The ladies turned out in fine fashion for Pitti Umo in Florence, and Men's Fashion Week in London. A recurring accessory among the fashionable, was the turban, or a printed scarf tied neatly about the head. Breezy white dresses, skirts, statement pieces and more....It's all fabulous to me!
