I would do anything to be comfortably sporting sandals, bare arms, and legs right now! Alas, New York Fashion Week fall/winter 2015  arrives today, and we are unfortunately in the throws of very traditional weather for the season. Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to the mood, colors, silhouettes, and experiences that are going to unfold in the next week, and I’m incredibly grateful to my friends and colleagues who are getting me prepped and keeping me on top of my game throughout the week.

A special shout out to Lands’ End for keeping me stylish and warm, Sorrelli for keeping me forever sparkly, Ringly from Shopbop for bringing cool fashion and tech into my world this week, ShoeDazzle for hooking me up with the coolest shoes around, while my friends at Aerosoles KNOW I will be on my feet for hours and need some comfy cushioning!  Le Tote gets a mention for providing me with well-curated clothes and accessories, Inni Nails for dazzling digits, Aveeno for keeping my skin calm, NARS & Maybelline for gorgeous makeup color, TRESemmé, SASSOON, and Caravan Stylist Studio for taking great care of my tresses throughout the week. Last but not least, Style Coalition and Re:fresh Private Refresh Spaces are literally giving me pause to rest and recharge throughout the week, and to that I say, mille grazie!

Sneak Peek: JCPenney’s Spring 2015 Collections

Great style and exceptional value is certainly a win-win scenario, and JCPenney has certainly hit the nail on the head with its array of styles for spring 2015. Per usual, I heavily focused on the accessories across it’s design and in-house brands, with some eye-catching printed blouses and home furnishings worth a mention. See the slideshow above for some of my top picks, which include Nicole by Nicole Miller, a.n.a, i heart ronson, and l’amour by Nanette Lepore, to name a few. If you’re in the mood to shop sooner than later or need to get a jump start on the holiday shopping, reference JCPenney’s “gift by price” assortment, where you’ll be sure to find something for everybody on your list!
