Take off the heels, who needs those things anyways? Let your hair down and get comfortable in a pair of sneaks by The Peoples Shoe. Simple, straight forward tennies that scream "I'm the cool kid in class." Anton Brandt—founder, world traveler and my personal cool-o-meter—started the company while living in Shanghai where he discovered the shoes on migrant workers. The environmentally and socially conscious footwear line has grown to include women's sizes as well as new colors and styles. Check out their blog and start sporting a pair like Ellen DeGeneres, The Killers and Franz Ferdinand !
Nothing like the change of seasons, especially when it warrants a mini shopping spree! Time to break open the piggy bank and score some fall essentials. First on my list is a boyfriend blazer. While he's busy watching ESPN, playing with his iphone or falling asleep to the chick flick you made him watch, you can sneak into his closet and steal his oversize version, or splurge on one of these...
Biker chic meet flower child. Whether you're feeling a little rough around the edges or on your way to Woodstock (the movie that is) this little number will definitely put a little pep in your step. Pair with some over the knee flat boots for fall or a long maxi dress for that insane Indian summer we are going to have—right weather!?

Admit it. You're a little excited about neon colors making a come back. Now you can pull out those sweet favorites from your 2 decades past wardrobe... florescent yellow fanny pack with matching visor, check, magenta scrunchie, check, hot purple tube socks, check—NOT! So maybe these awesome colors won't be coming back into your life as loudly as previous years. A little here a little there—your not Kanye West, so don't try anything crazy. But a little flashin' on your nails makes the perfect statement without looking like a VH1 flash back. Check out Essie's new neon collection—it doesn't get much better than flirty fuchsia (second from left).
The ridiculously cool french designer Isabel Marant is giving us much to look forward to this fall. An underground favorite among leggy models and of course those effortlessly put together French girls, Marant brings an edge to our wardrobes that—be careful boys—might bring out the inner bad girl. Inspired by glam rockers and London hooligans circa 1960s the collection is filled with fur coats, leopard pants and jackets, over the knee suede boots, slouchy jackets and tees, mini skirts and bohemian drop waist dresses and skirts. Wear with caution—attitude may surface.
So maybe when you were a kid your mom had to put the leash on every time you passed the candy aisle, and there may of been a few (or a few too many ) times you threw a temper tantrum because you didn't get a full scoop of ice cream. But you've changed, and you're way past throwing a fit over little things like sweets... until, that is, you grew up and fell in love with gold accessories—forget the sugar rush, go for the gold. So all you gold diggers out there, get a load of this fun jewelry line Jennifer Fisher . Full of 14K charms, chains, cuffs, bangles, and hoop earrings that can be personalized with initials, diamonds, black diamonds... I'm getting shopping anxiety just thinking about it. Choose your chain, charm, metal and personalized inscription to make it a one-of-a-kind piece to add to your collection. Happy shopping... and behave!
Yes its true, I have a bit of a bikini obsession... I just can't own enough. It doesn't help that this year Eres, the French lingerie and swimwear line, has possibly the prettiest colors and cuts that demand a poolside layout session - complete with a cabana boy and pina colada of course. Not to mention when you wear something that's French you instantly lose 20 lbs, grow 2 inches and become too cool for anyone to approach you... ok maybe thats just in my head.
