The Avid Shopper

Forever Chic Style Raving Hot


Romance, Refined Wool Coat

DVF Double-Breasted Coat & Mackage Wrap Coat - Coats and Encore

"Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory." - Coco Chanel

______

The Jacket & The Blouse



Veronica Beard - via C.


Not a fan of the jeans.   Do not invest in faded and ripped jeans if wanting to be a Forever Chic Style classics maven.  Instead chose skinny or straight leg dark denim that can be worn for years to come.  **Check in-store! Not online. 


"You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it." - Edith Head


______

Burgundy & Red are Hot for Fall 2016



Maggy London - Colorblock Scuba Sheath - Dresses & Encore



 And - Pumps

Gorgeous, Classic Pointed Toe Beauties in Cabernet

Love the Sam Edelman Tonia Pump - # 2 with a little bling!  The cabernet pumps and flats
are pretty too. 





"Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing." —Alexander Wang


______



The Bootie


Vince - Hallie Boot Limestone


Personally looking for a suede grey ankle boot. These are limestone but will search for grey and check out other colors. 

**Not online - check in-store. 



"Walk like you have three men walking behind you." —Oscar de la Renta


______


Everything Vince! 



Car Coat - Vince - Individualist


The Vince Wide-Leg Trousers are also spot on for fall. 




"Don't be into trends. Don't make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live." —Gianni Versace

______


Menswear for Ladies 




Loafers & Oxfords - Womens Shoes



Love #1 (Sarto by Franco Sarto) and possibly #4 (Louise Et Cie).  Choose a pointed toe versus round toe.  Will have to personally check out and get back to final decision. 



"Whoever said that money can't buy happiness, simply didn't know where to go shopping." —Bo Derek



______



The Classic Jean



Rag & Bone Skinny Jean

Skinny jeans with a mid to high waist remain center-stage this fall.   Of course, a straight leg is always classic and a must for a fashion doyenne's closet.  Wide legs and boyfriend jeans are also in fad but often do not flatter a fashionista. Stick to skinny or straight and always look for a dark wash for autumn and winter. 



"I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity—all I hope for in my clothes. —Yves Saint Laurent



______


The Bra & Pajamas!
Stock Up



Look for Natori & PJ Salvage for Pajamas

 Natori bras and PJ Salvage pajamas are ideal for the fall and winter. 



"Playing dress-up begins at age five and never truly ends." —Kate Spade

______



Home Fragrances - Stock Up

Antica Farmacista! Lavendar is Always Sublime! 







"Fashions fade, style is eternal." —Yves Saint Laurent

Classic Coach for Fall

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani

Kendra Scott - Jewels

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential. Just what is the right amount?  Well, here are a few Forever Chic Style  rules at your fingertips: Basic Rules:  Wear either real or faux jewelry.    Engagement ring is always real an
