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.
Nearly three years ago, New York City-based jewelry designer, Alexandra Beth launched her jewelry line aptly named Alexandra Beth Designs. This recent college-grad found herself among the creme de la creme at a designer's casting call by none other than Henri Bendel on Fifth Avenue. Not long after, buyers invited her to become a part of the highly coveted group of designers to host trunk shows throughout the year. Alexandra Beth is also a regular trunk show host at Bloomingdale's 59th Street flagship store. Her designs can be found in more than 20 retail boutiques. If you happen to meet the young entrepreneur herself, you'll be pleased to notice that she is not fazed by her grand success, but is rather humbled and happy to have the ability to please customers with her creations.
