fall color inspiration: jewel tones

With the arrival of fall fashion, we’re putting away our summer neons and busting out our favorite shades for autumn: jewel tones. From to amethyst, to sapphire, to emerald, jewel-like colors instantly make us feel glamorous and alluring. We’ll be rocking pieces like these from now through New Year’s.

From left to right: 3.1 Phillip Lim peplum top, Elle Macpherson Intimates lace and mesh briefs, Christian Louboutin heels,  Jil Sander satin bomber, T by Alexander Wang skirt, Thierry Lasry sunglasses, Current/Elliot corduroy jeans, Zero+MariaCornejo dress, Oscar de la Renta tassel earrings and  Sara Designs woven wrap watch.

What deep hue and you planning on making a fashion indulgence this fall?

 

 

Daytime Dare: Velveeta

November is upon us, Tartelettes, and we all know what that means- Wham, Bam, its Christmas, ma’am! What better suits the Holiday Season than the sumptuous richness of velvet? Ok, ok, so I understand your fears with this fabric. But I blame that fashion trepidation on two other style offenders. They go by the names of crushed and velour.

No worries, darlings, Mimi is the blogger who will save chic Christmas…or Hanukkah or Kwanzaa. (I’m très P.C.) Well, I’m playing Not-So-Secret Santa and giving you all you need to don truly gay apparel this Jingle Bell season.

1. You are Ebenezer Scrooge if this Isaac Mizrahi Two-Tone Velvet pump does not make you absolutely giddy. That eggplant on crimson is sartorially sinful.
2. I love
Corpus’ Velvet Moto jacket because it puts a casual edge on this typically evening fabric. VroomVroomVelvet!
3. A.Wang has done it again with this perfect tough/soft-chic
Velvet&Leather jacket
4. This
Foley+Corinna Velvet Trim vest is the supreme style for the Tartelette just dabbling in the fabric. I’d amp up the sexy factor with sizzling liquid leggings.
5. Joie
Velvet leggings
6. Nothing combats velvet’s “Old Granny” rep like this
Free People micro-mini with its funky paisley print!
7.
Gryphon Velvet Smoking Jacket
8. The patent and velvet on these Silver Way
Oxfords is the best unexpected combo since Chrismukkah.
9. Who better to up the chic ante of the dreaded velvet headband than Mr. Jacobs? This Marc by Marc Jacobs
Velvet Bow Headband is the perfect quirky touch to traditional Holiday fashions.
10. BCBG Max Azria
Velvet Romper

Ok, Tartelettes, no more velvet vexing! It’s time for you to deck the halls with boughs of chicness ;)
