Transition Your Wardrobe Into Fall

Jackets over whimsical floral dresses, knit scarves with a tank top, ankle boots with mini skirts, sweater dresses with flats. For those unpredictable weeks in between hot summer and crisp fall, it's all about mixing and matching. The easiest way to start is with shoe swapping. Floral lightweight dresses may usually be paired with a sandal, so why not try them with chunky heeled ankle boots? Thick sweaters are usually worn with jeans or tights, why not wear them bare legged with cute flats instead?

Another easy way to make the transition is with light layering. A denim jacket is the perfect add-on, or try a simple white tee under a sleeveless dress. Above all else, have fun!

What do moths like best?

Christina Novak

Moths have very refined palates and really enjoy dining on any designer fabrics they can find. As you get ready to put away your expensive coats, sweaters, scarves and such to store them away until next winter there are a few things you should keep in mind. 

I find that moths are usually not content to dine on an inside corner of a garment. They like to munch on the lapels, or the front of a cashmere dress, they love to be conspicuous so that your beloved garment is truly ruined beyond repair.  

Moths only have a few functions in their short lives. Procreate, feed their young, procreate, feed their young, procreate.....you get the idea.

These are little bitty beige colored flying moths, you barely notice them they are so small. This plays to their advantage. One moth flying about is looking for another one to be frisky with and then all they need is a quiet corner and some delicious wool, cashmere, or silk to feed the babies and they are happy. 

My personal belief is the biggest mistake people make is when they store their fall and winter pieces away for the season, they pretty much forget about them. BIG MISTAKE! In the words of Julia Roberts' character in Pretty Woman, "HUGE!" In the words of Donald Trump "Yuge!"

Left to their own devices moths will do what moths do. See above ^ Your best bet in keeping away the sexy little beasts is to make a point to regularly clean your closets where you store your beautiful clothes. 

You don't have to be too crazy about it. I do suggest that you take out any boxes, vacuum, dust and maybe wipe down the walls with some Lysol & water, or vinegar & water or whatever cleanser you like to use at least once a month over the summer while your clothing is all snug and cozy. 

Putting items away and completely forgetting about them is paramount to putting up a moth motel, so just don't do it!

The best of intentions...

Christina Novak

I think we always have the idea that we are going to go through our closets and drawers and get rid of everything that doesn't fit, look good or we just plain don't like. 

Sometimes we actually even start to do it. We march into the bedroom, fling open the closet doors and then are met with so much confusion and bounty that after a few minutes of moving hangers around we feel disgruntled and just slowly back away and close the door.

"Tomorrow is a better day" we reassure ourselves and then the realization that months have passed by and the clutter is still hanging around mocking you every time you venture into the closet.

I don't know about you but I do like to wear certain things over and over while other items are just languishing, untouched and forgotten. 

I read the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo, about taking each item and holding it to see if it has true meaning. That was kind of cool but didn't work for everything.....maybe I did it wrong!  

I have found something that does work for me is to grab out one or two items that I know for a fact I never put onto my back and I make a vow to wear them within the next week. If I actually try to wear them and don't, well that's it!!! Out they go. If it's a designer piece and think it will sell in the shop, I sell it. Often I will just donate the items and call it a day.  In the words of the intriguing Mary Poppins, spit spot and it's done!

JUDITH LEIBER

Known globally for her bejeweled handbags and minaudieres, Judith Leiber is the leading designer in evening clutches. Adored by many for her whimsical and dreamy sensibility, Judith Leiber year after year produces a "menagerie of dogs and cats, turtles, fish and real shells, as well as tiny suitcases, books and folding fans; fruit, vegetables, and eggs. Collectors find these treasures irresistible. They are witty little sculptures, appealing objects of adornment."*


Some of Judith Leiber's endless inspiration comes from the past. An avid history buff, Judith often pulls ideas for bags from museum visits and libraries.

"A wearable, collectible art form, Judith Leiber bags are coveted by celebrities and socialites and are in the permanent collections of such museums as the Smithsonian Institution and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York."Judith Leiber, The Artful Handbag

While she does produce up to 6 new collections a year, she still has her favorites she prefers to re-introduce in new patterns and colors. Cats and eggs are among these, in varying sizes. 

"Judith Leiber never tires of designing handbags. Each new idea is a delight and each new bag triggers further variations, new directions. "Here is the leopard and pattern on an egg. Have I shown you our new Humpty Dumpty?" She tells me proudly, "Now we are doing the tomato in orange and it will be a pumpkin! We are a crazy bunch!" - Dorothy Globus, Director of the Museum at the Fashion Institute

Leiber's more intricately designed clutches involve several steps, performed in several different countries. A wax mold is sculpted in the US, sent to Italy to make a brass mold, sent to England for a leather lining, then sent back to the US for the final hand painting and crystal application.

SNAKE PRINT


Mid-toned snake print and embossed leather have become a new go-to for neutral accessories to instantly pull an outfit together, and this without a doubt included shoes of all kinds this season. Givenchy showed full on python ensembles with knee high boots and matching coats, while Oscar de la Renta paired demure snake sling-backs with jacquard cocktail dresses.

VELVET


Once a firm believer in velvet shoes only if they come in black, I may be starting to re-think my ways. The deep jewel tones on heels and boots this season offer an easy, luxurious update, and could be the one fun piece to pull your outfit together.

BLOCK HEEL


While stilettos aren't necessarily going anywhere anytime soon, the re-emergence of block heels give a slightly more playful (and comfortable) option to evening and cocktail attire. 

Playing off the fun print of these pajama style silk slacks from Louis Vuitton, we added a fitted bustier and jeweled block heeled shoes. Finally, topped it all off with a crystal cat clutch, because why not?
