Truth & Pride

Julia is channeling a grown-up Wednesday Addams with this ensemble. A black minidress with a contrasting Peter Pan collar is both sweet and goth. A leopard fur coat and steel-toe oxfords amp up the edge exponentially. If I could pull off a Louise Brooks haircut, I would steal Julia’s look in an instant!

Kerry Pieri has a creative sense of style and truly dresses for herself—I love that about her! Kerry’s look outside the Delpozo show has a punky chic edge, thanks to a leopard-print coat, crop top and thick-sole heels. Her patterned trousers add a little menswear influence and keep the look modern. I can’t wait to see what’s next for Kerry as we head across the pond!

Anna Cottrell’s mix of punky leather and classic suiting is such a clever way to beat the weather and add some serious modern edge to pink tweed. This Arkansas native is currently a blogger (tulip.louise), but she’s spent years honing her style skills in the fashion industry. She says she loves to experiment with trends, and I have to say, I love the results!

Meagan says that on a cold, snowy day, color is an absolute must for her mood. Her lively ensemble certainly stands out, and I like her approach to the season.

Color and print are a great way to beat the winter blahs! Her bright, feminine look and cheery disposition totally lifted my spirits after a long day in the elements. Thanks, Meagan!

As the editor of Style & Then Some and the London correspondent for, Katie is deeply involved in the London fashion scene. She counts Tilda Swinton as her fashion icon, and her cool, quirky London style clearly reflects that.

Katie says that stripes, faux leather and stark contrast are key for her fall look. And how amazing is Katie’s perfect coif? Love it!

Monroe is a total sweetheart who I’ve been photo-stalking all week! She is a NY-based blogger (Fashion Steele NYC)  who counts Tracy Ellis Ross as her style icon.

I love how Monroe is playing conservative cuts against busy florals and playful heels. All in all, I think her idol would be proud!

Holy model! Anna is a straight up stunner. I love her minimalist, chic pastels and slim-cut suit illusion. Anna says she loves modeling, but was excited to be on the other side of the runway for a day.

While Anna hails from Russia, she said New York is her favorite place in the world.

Mademoiselle Christina hails from France (it was so fun to break out my French-speaking skills!) but spends a lot of time in New York. She describes her style as urban tomboy, which she documents in her blog, Trop Rouge.

Her metallic coated-denim skinnies are spot on trend, and her voluminous locks had photogs hounding her all day. À la prochaine, ma belle!

Sarah, our Personal Stylist Manager at South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa, CA), took time during our busy Anniversary Sale to throw out her most-wanted Anniversary items.

Pour la Victoire ‘Prado’ Tote. This is a great bag for fall! It offers function and fashion at a fabulous price.

Stuart Weitzman ‘Accumulate’ Boot. The perfect blend of classic and tough makes this boot extremely versatile.

Zella ‘Live-In Leggings’. Every girl should own these. I wear mine with oversized sweaters and boots. The best part is, you can lose the boots, put on a Zella tee and head to yoga.

Truth & Pride Perforated Leather Biker Jacket. I am crazy about this leather jacket! It works so easily with other pieces, and its biker cut will rev up your fall wardrobe in an instant!

Paige ‘Skyline Skinny’ Jeans. I love the color of the denim and fit of these jeans. The soft grey is a fantastic neutral that will become your go-to bottom for fall.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Oversized Sunglasses. New sunnies are not a summer-only necessity; as the seasons change, so should your shades. This style pictured is the perfect way to break into a larger frame. Go for it!

Joan & David ‘Quimberly’ Pump. A playful-yet-chic pump is the perfect balance to fall’s knits and leather. Wear it to work with a pencil skirt for a sophisticated look, or rock skinny jeans and a leather jacket for a night out.

Vince Boatneck Tee. Premium basics are a wise choice. You need to have cozy, yet stylish, layering pieces to be ready for any kind of weather. Throw it on under a knit or a leather jacket—this tee can do it all!

Clarisonic Mia 2. This is my number-one beauty must-have! Your skin will glow, and you’ll get the most out of your products. This is a game-changer for your skin.

Rebecca Minkoff ‘M.A.C.’ Python-Embossed Crossbody Clutch. Python is a playful way to keep things neutral while adding texture.
