You have to have a little shine in your life. And for fall, you can go as bold or as subtle as you like. I personally was a fan of the peplum pailettes at Tory Burch. With a blazer, the top is perfect for transitioning from the office to cocktails.

ttF Fashion Staple: Gemstone Brooch and Suede Over the Knee Boots
For my last night in New York, I was asked to present at the Second Annual Fashion 2.0 Awards. The event, hosted by Style Coalition in partnership with TheFind, celebrates the best in fashion, tech and social media. I normally would wear a dress for this type of occasion but I didn’t have time for any last minute shopping. So I worked with what I had in my suitcase.
A sequin sweater adds an instant glam factor to any outfit and I upped the sparkle even more with my brooch. My co-presenter, Felicia Walker Benson of ThisThatBeauty (pictured seated below with me, Jordanna Bruner of Clutch 22 and Gala of GalaDarling) had a similar idea. She accented her LBD with a fabulous jaguar brooch on her shoulder.
Felicia and I awarded Bluefly Closet Confessions the Best Online Video. To learn more about the event, including all the night’s winners, click here. And congrats to Yuli Ziv on such a successful night!

ttF Fashion Staples Series Diary: Caress Girls Night Out
Because she’s oh so fabulous, Caress asked my friend Nadine of the popular beauty blog Nadine Jolie to host a little girls night out. She invited her friends including Jamie of Queen of the Quarter Life Crisis, Roxy of Red Carpet Roxy, Kayte of La Bella Vita and moi over for cocktails before the limo arrived. We sipped martinis and posed for pics with the new Caress Whipped Souffle body wash.
Then, it was off to Drai’s in Hollywood for a night of dancing and more pictures in our cabana. My sparkly cardigan fit in perfectly with the Vegas-style club. And the über talented MAC Cosmetics Senior Artist John Stapleton added extra drama with an intense purple smoky eye. It’s a little more makeup than I usually wear but I after seeing Jamie’s awesome eyes I had to take it up a notch.
Want to win some body wash so your skin can be super smooth too? Nadine’s giving some away! Details here.

One of the Jimmy Choo for H&M items I bought was this sequin racer-back top ($69.95). Online, it was styled with leather pants and booties from the collection. Here, I’ve shown six other ways you can wear it. What’s cool about the top is it has two layers. So when you get bored of the sheer chiffon overlay, you can easily snip it off and have a new silver tunic to wear.
