Over the last few weeks, I have been asked about accessories as it pertains to college students from their personal style, decor in their rooms as well as their tech! As you may know, I work with a number of college students on transitioning them into post college - what to wear on their internships, for their first jobs etc and (available in a few weeks), you'll see me quoted on must have items for entering freshman and graduating seniors. I'm even doing some fun things this fall as I travel to a few universities to share my must have tips with them! I think I have a special place for this group of people as I graduated from Indiana University and for 2 summers, I worked as an Orientation Leader which is a group of current students of the university that dedicate their summer to being on campus and prepping incoming freshman and transfer students on what they need to know to be prepared for being a student that fall! It's a great time to give them the necessary tools and info to make them feel comfortable!
Over the next few weeks, I will include fun spreads on what's a must and will keep you up to date on segments I'm doing that tie into collegiate style which is helpful if you're a student or someone who wants to gift their college family or friend with fabulous accessories or tech/electronic accessories.
While we're here battling frosty NYC, many came together in DC to party it up as the President and the First Lady made their rounds to a number of parties! Many wondered what Michelle Obama would wear and we all saw that last night she rocked a Jason Wu dress and as they danced to Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" regardless of party, how could you not enjoy the moment and see that the two of them love one another. As she serenaded the two with the song that we all heard Obama sing on the campaign trail, how could not love, Jennifer Hudson's (we talked about her fab style yesterday while she was in Sundance) glam look? She looked radiant in a simple black stunning dress that definitely showed her in all of her essence!
As you're reading this, I'm prepping in the studios of HSN to share with you fab style that's perfect for summer transitions and fall a la Sebago! If you're up check me out at 7am as well as again on 11am today! Then tune in tomorrow at 5am to see me again! While I am here in Tampa/St Petersburg/Clearwater, I am fully focused on New York Fashion Week as well! There are so many fun looks that I can't wait to wear at the shows, after parties and other appearances that are going on! I am OBSESSED with Cut25 by Yigal Azrouel. This short dress has all my fave finds combined into one - it's grey, ruched dress and a one shoulder effect. This look is completed with other fun shades of grey! Sethi Couture has a phenomenal diamond moonstone ring which is the perfect one to wear when you're out and about. Pair this up with Giuseppe Zanotti as I am a huge fan of these python peep toe pumps (having this in black and grey is an essential). Finish it off with a fab bracelet by Alexander McQueen and Jimmy Choo Candy Clutch which is such a must as it will look phenom with everything!
Tis the season for gifting and I'll share a number of my finds through Kitten Lounge's annual Holiday Gift Guide, Last Minute Guide, Black Friday Tweets, Small Business Saturday Tweets, Cyber Monday Tweets and NYE Tweets. In addition to these areas, I'll also give you the scoop behind gifting options for upcoming TV segments. These are the brands that you will see me wearing and who have been generous in keeping this Accessories Expert looking fabulous.
