We are working on an article for New York Social Diary on the Couture Council at FIT Awards  Luncheon honoring Thom Browne so I am eyeing one of these bags.  

Trend:  White Bags

Fall Trends Thom Browne

This is my look for everyday to the office and about.  While I haven’t gone full fringe, I am going with these raw hem jeans and saved the fringe for these J.Crew jackets, I chose a strong  Thom Browne bag and in love with the velvet trend in shoes.

Trends:  Menswear Inspired, Power Purse, White Shoes, Velvet, Denim

  Lady Jacket with Fringe Hem $198   /  J. Crew Raw Hem Jeans $128

Thom Browne Mrs Thom Shoulder Bag  $2800

Rebecca Minkoff White Velvet Loafers $175

 Gianvito Rossi Elipsis Velvet High-Collar Pump  $397

I put this look together for day when I am on the run from morning ’til night.  Just swap out the wedges or boot for pumps and add a pair of statement earrings and a shiny clutch.  I find Veronica Beard’s jackets are tops in flattering fit and style.  The pants are new from J.Crew and are super fabulous for fit and style.   Reds in every shade are a huge trend and I prefer this rich burgundy jewel tone for fall.

TRENDS:  Power Dressing, Red, Velvet, Metallics
