Fashion's Night Out!!!!

Calling all fashionistas and fashionistos, Fashion's Night Out is here (well almost). The big night arrives September 8th and it is sure to pack a fashion punch from coast to coast and globally too! What is FNO all about you ask? Well, in brief, it was started in 2009 by American Vogue, the Council of Fashion Designers of America, NYC & Company, and the City of New York to celebrate fashion, restore consumer confidence, boost the industry's economy, and put the fun back in shopping and it has really taken off as a night filled with after-hours shopping events, special promotions, and charitable proceeds, not to mention some of the cutest tees and other gear to represent the spectacular night-check out what the FNO collection has in-store this year, here!  Interested in checking out an event or two in your city? Go here for details! Third time is definitely a charm and this year some of my fav's are participating, including Anthro!!!! So, mark your calendars, sync your BB's and IPhone and Get in gear and get your fashion-on!!!!

Spotlight On: Complex Geometries!!!!

Complex Geometries
As of late, I've really been into drapey knits and easy to wear pieces, that are figure conscience, given my current state of being.  With that said, may I introduce a new designer, to me, Clayton Evans, the man behind my new fave: Complex Geometries!  I first discovered this cleverly named clothing and accessory line here(another new love) and found that this line was quite popular, as most of the pieces I spied were either sold out or not available in my size-bummer, but I was still hopeful (as customer service promised to inform me when items were back in stock-gotta love small business, customer service). The Complex line offers clever cowl necks, asymmetrical lines, and multifunctional pieces!!! And the jewelry is simple and chic as well. The line is not too flashy, but definitely leaves a lasting impression...Check out some of my highlights, all of which transition well from Summer to Fall...
