This fabulous fur-lined parka from Mr and Mrs Furs may be classic in color, but the cinched waist makes it anything but typical, providing a beautiful silhouette. Also unexpected, the contrast in fabric (100% raccoon), making it a standout.

Urban chic, for sure. I'll take the boots and handbag, too!

When is fur not fabulous? Faux or the real deal, it's a staple. And this season, it's bigger than life!

Dyed fur is back with a vengeance. This time around, color comes in graphic pattern. Gorgeous, dreamy little love affairs.

I can't wait to pick up my new fur later this week (squeal).

Smack dab in the middle of the week, I injected a little girl time.

Few and far between with these busy months of styling. Ironically, we spent much of the time talking trends. More importantly, interpreting the latest and greatest fall goodness based on individual style. Which leads me to Marissa Webb.

What an amazing collection this season! Solids speak to the season. However, they also say 'timeless.' This collection is well suited for all time. For many body shapes. I love the layers. And non-layering pieces. Great staples all around.

This is everywhere.

And I swore I wouldn't post it. But honestly, I am so mesmerized by it that I can't help myself.

Isabel Marant, of course. One of my favorite designers mastering the blanket sweater trend for fall. This Italian-made knit with touches of soft wool and alpaca, features a black, anthracite and dark-brown motif that taps into the label's global-traveler aesthetic. Teamed with the soft wool-blend woven wrap skirt with frayed trims and asymmetric hem, this is comfortably fabulous!

While I never go for matchy matchy, this is my exception.

fw14makeupIf only I had decent eyebrows. Because bold brows are still making an impact this season.

While bold can sometimes come across as hard, makeup artist Diane Kendal went for a slightly more arched look for Carolina Herrera, making them more feminine. Paired with pinkish-purple stained lips (which Kendal created by swiping on M.A.C. Lipstick in Boysenberry and blotting it away), it can be quite sophisticated.

Another definite do this fall are eyes done up in gray/brown colors for an easy daytime smoky eye.
