Outerwear is always one of my favorite parts about dressing for Fall, and with all of the fun patterned and colorful blazers in stores this season I’m even more excited than usual. Not sure where to start? Time to check in with the experts! The Glitter Guide’s Fall Shopping Guide: Blazers.
One of my new favorites to keep an eye on during Fashion Month is Russian designer and photographer Ulyana Sergeenko. Her style is dramatic, eye-catching, and perfectly over-the-top. And luckily for us fashion lovers she’s just one of many chic up and coming Russian fashionistas making the scene these days! You’ll thank me after you check out all of these lovely ladies in Bougeotte’s Modern Russian Czarinas Are Being Born.
Beauty lovers have been buzzing about the new Courtin-Clarins beauty blog that launched last month. If you haven’t gotten a chance to see what these French beauties have to say now’s the time! WhoWhatWear – The Scoop: Claire & Virginie Courtin-Clarins.

I recently discovered a fun new fashion blog that I’d love to share – Advanced Style was created by Ari Seth Cohen and celebrates the fabulous fashion of the older generations. As someone who grew up on Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant movies, couldn’t wait to start working after college so I could have a formal wardrobe, and dresses up to travel – this is right up my alley. I love the formality and classic approach to fashion celebrated by previous generations and this website is a great place to find stunning photographs of just that. Enjoy!

I remember thinking at 18 that 30 was so old but now as I’m swiftly approaching the big three-oh my thinking has changed – I’m looking forward to the things that I’m going to accomplish in my thirties, the goals I’m going to set, the places I’m going to visit. Needless to say I was thrilled when I saw this article – Does life really begin at 30?
Sweet potatoes are a great favorite of mine – I love that there are an endless number of recipes that you can make with them, from snacks to savory dinner to sweet desserts. Versatile and delicious, what more could a girl want? More recipes to try of course! 10 Healthy Sweet Potato Recipes: Easy and tasty sweet potato recipes, each with about 300 calories or less.
Finding new recipes, reading about food, health & nutrition, and finding great food blogs written by creative, passionate people are some of my favorite pastimes so I was thrilled when Green Thickies posted a list of the their favorite blogs – Some I already knew and others I eagerly looked up. I had dozens of recipes printed in minutes! 🙂 Check out 8 Best Vegan Blogs for links and recipes to try!
Sometimes when I look at a recipe I’ll immediately think “no” in my mind when I look at the amount of oil, butter, or sugar being recommended. Rather than count certain recipes out, we can substitute healthier, nutritious ingredients for the more calorically dense, fattening ones. Apple sauce is one of my go-to ingredients to lighten up a recipe, but for Fall why not try pumpkin? How to Substitute Pumpkin Puree For Butter and Oil.
Speaking of pumpkin, this was one of the first pumpkin recipes I made this season when Trader Joe’s started stocking the shelves with canned pumpkin – How To Make A Quick Healthy Pumpkin Pie Fudge. So. Good.

Almost as interesting as watching the runway shows are the looks put together by the celebrities, A-listers, models, editors and industry insiders as they sit front row watching.
I've never been a fan of ponchos but even I have to admit that this is striking - I love the combination of the vibrant, cobalt blue & the grey tweed. Don't you just love seeing the models after the shows in their own clothes but still in hair & makeup? Like the meeting of two worlds! 🙂
Alexandra Golovanoff stunned in a black and white printed knit shift dress with slouchy boots, a fedora and a cashmere coat at Valentino. I would be so tempted to wear pretty, frilly Valentino despite the freezing temp so good for her!
Diane looked gorgeous in Giambattista Valli Haute Couture. It's hard for blonds to wear grey but she found the perfect shades. I love the intricate beading on the tweed and her cat-eye make up the best.
While Josephine de la Baume & Olympia Scarry don't look thrilled to be there, Ni Ni looks stunning, happy and perfectly coiffed for the front row of Christian Dior Haute Couture. Gorgeous!
Miss Diane was also front row at Versace in a stunning black and white dress that included stripes and florals, and a hippie-inspired white leather belt.
Leave it to the models fresh off the runway to put together the best streetstyle looks. Cable knit sweaters and double-breasted wool peacoats with liquid leather leggings, skinny jeans and boots of all heights. They certainly know what they're doing.
Diane was a vision in an adorable in a black & white high-necked, sleeveless dress with a sweet drop-waist. Chanel Haute Couture of course darling.
Fur & leather are both good ways to keep warm during a Parisian winter. Olivia wore a knee-length open fur vest with leather leggings and carried a printed umbrella to get her from show to show.
Cameron Diaz has been all over Paris for the shows but this was the first picture that I really fell for. The color of this Valentino frock is absolutely great with her skin tone and I like how its interesting and eye-catching without being revealing.
What would a trip to Paris be without a glimpse of the oh so famous Clarins sisters? I love the floral printed blouse mixed with the white lace booties, makes me wish it was warmer.
This is an unusual dress to be sure and I was a little confused/unsure about the sheer bust area but overall I like it. It's a fun & unique color, yellow lace is new and the fit is flattering. Also, j'adore those shoes!
Oh Anna, we love you!

Harper’s Bazaar even has a style breakdown of fashion editor Miroslava Duma’s great leather leggings & cropped red coat look here.
*** Please note that I do not in any way advocate the use of fur in fashion and personally make an effort not to wear/carry fur, exotic skins or leather. This day in age there are many beautiful alternatives to these products which are cruelty & animal-free and should be utilized instead.
