Dressing Professional ....and a Little Touch of Fall Fashion 2014! And Fashion Flash!!

Hope everyone had a fun weekend!  Did you get out of the house and do something enjoyable?? I hope so...we must all find some joy in the world around us.  Wouldn't you know it...as soon as I go back to professional clothing...the temps hit over 100!! 


This is another long jacket....a style, I really like.  I selected to feature this outfit because it actually has three ways to transition into fall within the look.  But...I am not going to share with you what those three ways are until the end of the week!






I was invited last week to attend a press preview at our local NEIMAN MARCUS at the THE SHOPS AT LA CANTERA.  It was such an honor to be in this intimate group with hands on, up close previews of gorgeous designer fashions.

On Wednesday and Thursday, I will share with you specifics from this event and what we can take away and apply.  Visiting Neiman Marcus is much like visiting an art museum for me...I appreciate the talents and creativity of these artists...whether on canvas or on the runway.  And we can all learn from them!!  So, please come back later in the week and see what I learned and actually applied a little of in this look today!

Note:  I bought the jacket during the TALBOTS Red Hangar Sale!

  1. Ah, you're getting back to work, too? Isn't it awful when the weather chooses not to cooperate and you feel hot and uncomfortable and can't find anything suitable to wear? I think autumn can't come soon enough...

  3. I must say I like your zebra coat (of course, I am a fan of animal prints) and how fab is it to attend such an event? Thos sparkly shoes would go so very well with my zebra leggins.

  16. Wow Pam I am sooo looking forward to your report! Love the zebra coat. I am not a huge fan of leopard because the colors dont suit me. So black and white is the perfect option. Have a great day. xo Sabina @Oceanblue Style

  17. You know, i've made a point of not buying anything that makes me look like a large jungle animal, but you look great in the jacket and I love how you accessorized. So maybe I should reconsider my prowling habits!
