I am addicted to sunglasses. Even on the cloudiest of days, I cannot leave home without them. I think blue eyes are extra sensitive to the sun. Choosing the right pair is essential, especially if you’re spending a lot of money. They are a major statement piece and it’s important to wear a pair that fits your style. A huge trend in frames this season is the Cat Eye. This silhouette has been around for decades, but comes and goes as far as trends are concerned. I’ve always been a huge fan! They are super glamorous and look great on almost everyone. Here’s a look at my top picks this season.
Tortoise, especially in coffee shades, are huge right now. This color really does look good on everyone.

Sunglasses are the ultimate accessory when the sun is shining. Be sure to try on many pairs, get someone’s opinion, and have fun!!
I’ve been waiting a long time for a new collection from Juicy Couture founders, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor. And it finally happened Sunday in parking garage under Lincoln Center. The new line, simply called Skaist Taylor, is fabulous. They’ve deemed it “Cali-eccentric” and is for girls who love fashion and enjoy mixing high and low end with vintage tossed in for good measure. The collection consists of tees, outerwear, pants, and luxurious knits. You won’t find any velour tracksuits, but it’s still comfortable and fashion forward. The line will be in stores for Fall 2012 and prices range from $175-$3000. Here’s just a taste!
The sweater is divine, the cut of the pant is perfection, and the hat is just fun.
Love the fur (of course) and the shorter front/ longer back seems to be the trend for dresses and skirts.
Very bohemian. The detail on the dress is great.
Another bohemian look. You can see that straight hair is going to be huge for fall.
A new twist on the peasant top.
Pea Coats are huge for fall. I love the gray with red accessories.
A super cool alternative to the regular suit. The skinny, cropped pants are awesome!
My heroes- Gela and Pam!
I used to be a huge Juicy Couture fan. I can’t even begin to tell you how many track suits I have owned. But over the past couple of years, I’ve forgotten how great the line is. Today I decided to reintroduce myself to JC and found some amazing pieces.

This is so cozy looking-perfect for cold winter mornings
Corduroy Skinny Pant $158
I’ll say it again-I love corduroy!
Drop Waist Wool Coat $448
I love the plaid and the fur hood
Nylon Puffer Coat $398
Nothing keeps me warmer than a good puffer and this one is so stylish
Gatsby Beaded Dress $448
Love the flapper look and the beading is a great detail
Heloise Large Tote $428
I’m always on the lookout for a good leather tote
Furry Beret $58
Berets are my number one choice for winter hats, and of course, I love fur
Pave Owl Ring $78
Big rings are so glamorous
Pave Silver Starter Bracelet $58
Ballerina Gold Charm $52
I love charm bracelets and Juicy has the best one. You choose from their many charms and add to it whenever you want

I’m really excited for the launch of Skaist Taylor in February 2012. Juicy Couture creators, Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor, sold Juicy to Liz Claiborne in 2003 and left the company in early 2010. Their new line will be a return to what they do best-design clothing they want to wear. But don’t expect track suits-these ladies have moved on!
