No matter how bad the economy gets, you always need a place to hold your money. So it's the perfect time to invest in a classic (but not overly expensive) handbag.

Q: For the last two years I have worked in the legal profession where my wardrobe consists mostly of skirt and pant suits, business shirts and lots and lots of black. Next year, I am going back to study fashion design to pursue my dream of working in fashion publishing. Do you have any suggestions for transitioning my color deficient and overly formal wardrobe to match my new life?
Yes Fall is just around the corner. Alas if we are lucky we will have a glimpse of an Indian summer breaking into September up into early October. But still as the seasons change so does our wardrobe. I always feel a tang bit sad when fall comes around. The leaves start falling, awaiting the colder months ahead. But, I do love the colors of autumn. Which are rich in bold reds, sienna browns, yellows, and greens. These are the colors we can gain inspiration from!

Victoria Beckham (source) Molly Sims (source) Miley Cyrus (source) Any way you tie it, bows are making their way into every detail for pre-fall fashion ensembles. From 1970's-inspired frilly neck tops (like Miley's plaid variety) to big 1980's prom dress inspired bows like on Molly Sims and V-Becks, these girly details are truly divine. The truly daring can pair a frilly neck top with high-waist pants and open toe booties for a seriously fierce office ensemble. And if you are feeling extra saucy, then go for the big satiny bow effect and look for cocktail dresses with a halter neckline and a bow tie at the back, or even a more retro style like on Molly Sims. If you're not so sure you are ready to look like a blast from the past, then check out these bowed beauties to get a taste of this trend in a more subtle way: Betsey Johnson Bow Bangle Watch, $75.00 The perfect accessory to give a menswear look a more feminine feel. Leather Mini Bow Bag, $29.99 The perfect way to wear this bag: sugar and spice. Pair this uber girly purse with fierce gladiator sandals and a leather (or latex) mini. STEAL: Lela Rose for Payless "Peggy" Wedge Sandal, $30.00 My personal favorite, this slingback peep-toe wedge sandal is both timeless and trendy. Worn with a vintage-style flowery dress or to add a little sweetness to a menswear look, this shoe is both versatile and fun. SPLURGE: Escada Mini Houndstooth Bow Dress, $1,690.00 Unfortunately, I have to pay the old mortgage this month, otherwise this dress would be in my closet right now. Feel free to send me one in a size 10. Thanks.
