Bloomingdale's is Mad About Fashion
Quicker that you can utter the words "moto-jacket" -- fall will be in full-swing. Recently, Joonbug had the opportunity to check in with Bloomingdale's during their "Mad About Fashion Event" to get the inside scoop on the hottest trends from some of the most stylish brands. Bloomingdale's is well-known for their fabulous dress and cosmetics departments and their women's collections for the fall certainly have us lusting after cooler temps in the city. So, grab that pumkin spice latte and let's hit the runway.

City dressing is all about versatility and being able to go from day to night. This flattering dress from DVF Diane Von Furstenberg will certainly take you from the office and beyond. We love the retro-inspired print. Top the look off with the jacket of the season -- a leather moto-jacket by All Saints.

It's fun to keep it chic. Who says that classic lines aren't sexy? We can't begin to tell you how many compliments this model received as she strutted down the Bloomingdale's runway in this amazing Tahari tweed sheath dress. The makeup artist added a bold fuchsia lip for added appeal. A Fendi purse in a pop of color and Marc by Marc Jacobs statement necklace completed this look. Don't be shy and add edgy accessories, such as these leather grommet-detailed gloves.

Leather can now be worn to the office and beyond. This Hugo Boss leather skirt was to-die-for . The color of the skirt and the the way it was cut is so flattering on the body. This model rocked the look with a pretty Gerard Darel blouse and Links of London layered necklaces. Links of London is a brand favored by Kate Middleton and the pieces were gorgeous.

A wool fedora is such a great way to add a little mystery to your fall look. Think "undercover chic." This colorblock jacket by Marc by Marc Jacobs was a real head-turner. Many who attended the runway event were saying that they wanted this piece. Joonbug adores Marc Jacobs and all of his designs, so we also are a fan. With a slight military influence, but with an air of added whimsy with accent colors in burgundy, blue and tan this warm jacket can be worn with many outfits. The skinny jeans with patch accents are also by Marc by Marc Jacobs. The burgundy/wine color Ray Ban shades the model wore are perfect for fall!

Another notice-me look was the Ted Baker London ensemble. Florals can also be worn into fall. We saw this as this look graced the runway. The skirt was gorgeous and can definitley be styled to reflect your personality. If you wear the skirt with a leather jacket, you can make the look more street chic; or you could give it that upscale Park Ave. feel with a blazer and a chain-link bag. Ted Baker London has a great collection for fall including a chic tan coat we noticed.

Unique Flats, No Ballerinas Allowed

I love Tory Burch ballerina flats as much as the next person. However, with so many ballerina-style flats on the market, they've got a girl wanting something different --some variety! I guess we can call it "ballet burn-out." As much as we love shoes, we can only have so many pairs/colors of the same style. Frankly, we're bored.

On a mission for originality, we went looking for the most stylish, unique flats we could find. It's not as easy as you would think! Stores are so flooded with ballerina styles, I don't think they realize there are other kinds of flats out there. We're glad the oxford trend is here, as designers are picking up on it and giving us more flat options (woo-hoo!). So move over (for now) stilettos and ballerinas, there are new styles in town!

Military Must

The military trend has hit the streets hard. Everywhere I look in the city, lace-up, military-inspired boots are appearing on the feet of even the most girliest of girls.

These boots are being paired with literally everything and anything that comes out of a closet. Leggings, skinnies, and floral dresses are just a few companions of these masculine must-haves.

Try them out for yourself, skip your usual pumps and give your favorite dress a casual edge - or for a subtle look, pair them with skinnies and your favorite fall sweater.

Style Stalker: On the Streets in Boston

Local artists, photographers, designers and musicians swarmed the Lily Pad in Cambridge last Sunday night to celebrate the launch of a new Boston-based online collaborative arts magazine called Spirited. Boston dandy Mitch Hampton entertained on piano while guests sipped Bols Genever punch and Pretty Things beer, and visiting musicians Faux Fix from New Haven were in attendance to play some new material. There was much fabulous fashion to be had and I narrowed in on three guests I thought had amazing style.
