I MATTER: Fall Fashion Trends 2014....Plus the Thursday Blog Hop!

There are a couple of reasons the I MATTER sign is pictured today with items from NEIMAN MARCUS.  First,
1.  There are some of you who are now empty-nesters and have the disposable income for investment dressing...or perhaps, you have always had the income!
2. For the rest, this post is a reminder... much can be learned from watching the designer trends and styles.  It is easy to adapt them to your own wardrobe.  So, let's begin:

One thing we know, is that a pop of color with all shades of gray will be in this fall.  Pictured to the left, is one of the favorite colors of the season...RADIANT ORCHID.  Other favorites are emerald green and cobalt blue.

1. Understand which colors look best on me...and which ones I love!
2. I step out of my comfort zone to try on outfits I might not normally gravitate towards.
3. I understand there are times purchasing investment pieces for my wardrobe can make good sense.
4. I understand I feel confident and joyful when I look my best!
5. I realize a "trend" might be a best look for me and is worth my time to investigate!

These fashions are from the FALL 2014 PREVIEW AT NEIMAN MARCUS.  Some of you might rush to Neiman's to see for yourself and some of you might be inspired to do your own version...no matter which camp you are in...remember you matter...have fun this fall with your wardrobe!!

For the rest of the I MATTER posts, go to the picture of the sign in my sidebar.  Then check out some of the great blogs of Katie's Favorite Things Blog Hop!
