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.
Renowned fashion designer and creative director of Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs has expanded his market into the beauty department with a new makeup line Sold exclusively at Sephora and in select Marc Jacobs stores, the much anticipated makeup line debuted on Friday, August 09, 2013 and beauty junkies all over the country (ourselves included) can’t wait to try it out.
Reining it in from past seasons of embellished brights and quirky colors, ready-to-wear is taking back black and white is tagging along for the ride. Jil Sander and Narciso Rodriguez class it up, while other top designers like Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang move toward the edgier side of the contrasting colors.
Here’s something that’s sure to get a rise out of animal lovers everywhere. Marc Jacobs' faux fur coat line designed for the high-end bargain store Century 21, has been discovered to contain dog fur parts. The type of fur used in the coat line is from an animal named the Chinese Raccoon Dog. The scene went down when the Humane Society of the United States sent a hidden camera into the a Century 21 store. The stance of Jacobs seems to be fairly ambivalent. The irony is that Marc Jacobs is a vegan and animal lover himself. Jacobs has not responded to requests to speak on the matter. His label's hypocrisy lies in producing something real under the title “faux fur,” and selling it to the public, especially at such a well-known department store such as Century 21. Reactions have been volatile, particularly from young woman, who are his greatest fan base. “I think that’s horrible,” pronounced a 23 year old fashionista, “because I don’t believe in wearing real fur, I would be really upset if I purchased something that said it was fake and it was real.”
Joonbug is definitely feeling the style collaboration between Target and Neiman Marcus. Referred to as a "legendary partnership" featuring over 50 gorgeous gifts from over 24 exceptional designers, Neiman Marcus at the Paramus, NJ location is hosting a soiree to kick-off this fashion extravaganza. As many of you know, located in beautiful Bergen County, NJ -- the Neiman Marcus Paramus location is a premiere shopping experience. The area is known for their malls, and Neiman's certainly doesn't disappoint.
