Boots are my shoe of choice come October. And October is almost here!

Charlotte Olympia, my shoe designer crush, has given us something groovy to drool over, and wear of course. Meet Millie. She embodies modern glamour. Featuring a broad, sculptural heel and thick platform, this suede beauty is a must this fall. I have to say Stuart Weitzman even did a take on this look (those, too, are fabulous). I'm all over it!



Oh, how I wish it were that time.

Time to wear weighted elegance, in the form of this gorgeous Gucci wool natté coat.

I am a sucker for ivory coats, first off. Let's add to that, Italian made. And finally, the fact that this style is timeless with the double-breasted closure and notched lapels. Covered buttons, to boot!

While the heat is still lingering, my mind is elsewhere, waiting to embrace the cooler months. Yes, even the frigid temps on the northern lacrosse fields. After all, that means I get to layer!

isamuneNow that the official first day of fall is under our belt, it's time to take our health up a notch.

I eat clean and take the best vitamins on earth, however, that doesn't mean I don't need additional help when it comes to immune support. I was fortunate to have found Isamune Plus with Zinc last fall. My family has been using it ever since. Scientifically advanced to deliver immune-building compounds, this convenient spray makes it a no-excuse option.

The immune system is the body’s first line of defense. Stress, poor diet and lack of sleep can easily compromise the immune system making it more susceptible. Add to that, seasonal dangers. This powerful, fast formula is designed to quickly deliver immune-building ingredients such as Zinc, Colostrum, Echinacea, Reishi mushroom, bilberry and blueberry.

If you weren't already familiar with the power of Zinc, it plays an important role as a component of many enzymes and the catalysts of enzyme systems regulating cell growth, DNA and protein synthesis, energy metabolism and helping to regulate the production of cells in the body’s immune system. 

Immune support — yes ma'am!

chokerandlongChokers are still the rage

Though, I still only gravitate toward the simple, elegant ones.

The latest trend is a bit much for me. However, there are many styles to choose from — black ribbon, ornate, funky. Something for everybody.

I happen to dig this combo piece. Stella McCartney designed this for a layered look. Made from polished gold-plated brass, it has a curved choker that's attached to a delicate long chain. You can adjust the fastening to suit both high or low necklines.

Versatile brilliance!

While in Dallas a couple of weeks ago, I visited my favorite Neiman Marcus cosmetics gurus, Denise and Maria. We played with a couple of the new Omorovicza products from the oxygen line. The booster is definitely on my list!

However, I went straight for the Hydra Melting Cleanser, a gel cleansing balm that I have wanted to add to my skin care regimen for quite some time. This invigorating triple-phase facial cleanser effortlessly removes all impurities without stripping. The rich gel melts into an oil when massaged into the skin. Add water and it transforms into a milky emulsion that rinses easily away. It works as good as it smells!

It contains mallow flower extract to hydrate the skin and reduce inflammation for a more even skin tone; sea buckthorn berry oil rich in vitamins A, C and E and Omega 7 to purify and regenerate the skin; essential oils of sage, rose geranium and Roman chamomile for an astringent and antiseptic effect, as well as calming the senses; and Omorovicza’s patented Hydro Mineral Transference™ system leaving the skin firmer, more supple and younger looking.

Of course, I couldn't leave with just one item. The Miracle Facial Oil had to join the party. That, too, is delicious!
