MODA OPERANDI // MY TRUNKSHOW PICKS

It is fashion month, which means I am mentally shopping for next season! However, when I start eyeing some of my favorite pieces on the catwalk I start to think – will they ever be produced? Where will I be able to shop them? When is the release date? Will I find my size? With Moda Operandi, that concern is totally alleviated! Their Trunkshows allow you to discover the best looks of next season, secure pieces in your size, and shop today. You are placing a personal order and directly supporting the designers that you believe in!

Moda Operandi is the only place to comprehensively shop the runways early. I love them for this unique feature, it speaks to how much they are a champion for new designers, smaller brands, and talent from markets that aren’t as widely supported by mass retailers. Some of the most unique pieces in my closet have been found on Moda Operandi. I’m constantly popping over to the site to discover emerging brands and see what surprises they have in store.

Below I’m highlighting my favorites for next season from Acler, Alex Perry, Attico, Brock Collection, and Rylan! Each Trunkshow is live for a limited time so make sure to check them out before they’re gone!

Thank you to Mode Operandi and ShopStyle for partnering on this post!

DRESSING FROM THE SHOES UP // NET-A-PORTER

Only a few more days left to get 15% off on shoes* at Net-a-Porter using the exclusive code SHOPSTYLE15 // The sale ends on 9/29 so run don’t walk! You’ll save on everything from my favorite sneakers, to the OTK boots I have been eyeing for fall, to a funky pair of fancy feathered shoes. I shared some of my favorite pairs last week (see here) and today I am showcasing how I am dressing from the shoes up to create five fresh lewks for fall!

Thank you to Net-a-Porter and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post!

Lilac and red make such a dreamy color combo for fall. I started with these fun, feathery shoes, and added this rich pleated leather skirt and this cool, western-inspired, belted shirt jacket!

Plaid is always a good idea. While you might associate pastels with spring and summer, I think a light shade can be the perfect way to balance out a darker palette. I am loving this Mercedes Castillo strappy croc sandal back to plaid on plaid.

Casual, but make it cute. I have mentioned before that Golden Goose are worth the $$ and right now for 15% with the code SHOPSTYLE15  – it doesn’t get much better than that! While I would like everyone to believe I live in tulle and sky high heels all the time…I don’t! This off-duty look is perfect for running around the city. While I want to be casual, that doesn’t mean it can’t be colorful and chic. I started with the perfect pair of pink sneakers, paired them back to this dreamy striped sweater and a  perfect pair of cropped kick flares. Voilà!

Neutral, but never boring. These timeless croc boots have met their match in this ultra-cool tie-front sweater and surprisingly affordable double-breasted faux fur coat. Now, just bring on the cooler temps already!

Orange you glad fall has arrived?! These strappy sandals are the perfect transitional shoe option and the most gorgeous shade of orange. Pair them back to this oversized ribbed-knit v-neck sweater and this asymmetric animal print midi skirt to create a fun fall look that is wildly on trend.

The Net-A-Porter shoe sale ends on 9/29! Code: SHOPSTYLE15

NET-A-PORTER SHOE SALE // 15 MUST-HAVES

Thank you to ShopStyle and Net-A-Porter for sponsoring this post.

Shoes. Shoes. Shoes. Let’s cut to the chase, I love Net-A-Porter, and particularly so for their incredible shoe selection. From 9/17 through 9/29 you can receive 15% off on shoes at Net-A-Porter with the code SHOPSTYLE15 (there are a few brand restrictions*). Below, I am walking you through a few of my favorites from the Net-A-Porter Shoe Sale!

STRAPPY SANDALS // The perfect transitional shoe to take you from summer to fall. One day it is 80 degrees and the next it is 60 – this time of year is confusing – should I wear a sweater? A swimsuit? I love these strappy sandals that are equally perfect for an unexpectedly hot day as they are with a pair of colored tights once the temps really drop. This season I am also loving neutral plaid paired with color pops and this shoe or this shoe would be amazing back to this coat or this pleated skirt!

ANIMAL INSTINCTS // Nothing screams fall quite like animal print. While leopard will always be a classic, and is certainly here to stay, tiger stripes are making quite the splash this season. Since I’m guilty of loving a good matchy-matchy moment, I would wear these tiger stripe boots with this slip dress and a great oversized camel coat, like this one.

PUT A BOW ON IT // I am a sucker for a big bow – or three – so these bow options make my heart sing. I already own these rainbow bow front shoes in gold and can attest to the fact that they are some of the most comfortable heels I own. The rainbow stripe pair is next level! I have been eyeing these big bow showstoppers for the better part of a month, and may just have to get them. Question: What is the easiest way to add interest to a LBD? Answer: Statement shoes!

CHIC & COMFY SNEAKS // While I would love for you to believe that I run around town in sky high heels all year round, the truth is, living in NYC means that I need comfortably chic and practical shoes. To me, that means having go to sneakers to turn to. Golden Goose are some of the best sneakers I have ever worn. I love them! If sneakers aren’t your thing, the next best option for comfort and practicality are flats. This gingham pair would be perfect for fall plaid print mixing!

TIMELESS TWO-TONE // For a more polished and professional look, I opt for neutral two-toned styles. These go-with-anything options are classic and can be worn for seasons and seasons to come! I bought this silhouette in red last year and love the pitch, fit, and toe shape so much. This season I am pairing all of these two-tone options back to a classic tweeds like this dress or this blazer.
