Chloe Knits - Brown/Beige/Orange Chunky Knit Cardigan
by Lisa Topiol
Maybe it's because summer is nearing an end and school is right around the corner, (or maybe because I never fully got over my obsession with school supplies) but I find this pouch by Chloe utterly adorable! I will never give up on that little kid that lives inside of me who's always ready to embrace a fun, quirky addition to my style. Of course, as soon as I spotted this Ugly Monster Pouch I had to share it with everyone! The monster on the front may not be very scary, but he's totally cute! This little zip pouch is great for carrying all your essentials so they don't get lost in your purse. Use it as a wallet, makeup bag, coin purse, or maybe even to hold some writing utensils! Whatever you do, don't hide this monster... show him off!
The New York weather may be frightful (understatement?), but you know what they say -- the fashion show must go on! Fashion Week invitees who truly live and breathe fashion are trudging their skinny behinds to the shows despite whatever the sleet and snow are hurling in their direction. So the biggest must-have on every attendee's checklist (aside from invites to the most sought-after shows) is definitely some cold-weather outerwear. But when you're rubbing elbows with the likes of Anna Wintour and other high-profile front-row voyeurs, you can't just show up in any coat. In fact, you'd probably be safer going naked than being seen wrapped up in Uggs and a Snuggie, for example. Stand out in trendy leopard print with a Chloe wool-blend coat, or show off your feminine side with a ruffled trench by Oscar de la Renta. Extravagance is key, so unfortunately you'll have to leave your "frugalista" tendencies behind if you want to make the best impression -- or be really good at faking it!
