This post is the reason why I should not take photos after work when I am exhausted, when it is dark and when all I want to do is cuddle in bed and watch TV. However, my excitement to share these lovely metal toe-cap shoes proved to be stronger. My obsession with cap toe shoes started earlier in the year but it seems that this trend has been in full force for a while as caps or reinforced toes are present very frequently in both oxfords and boots. What do I love most about them? Their versatility – the pointed-toe shape and the metal caps make these shoes both sophisticated and edgy, appropriate to pair with both cropped pants and distressed jeans.

The plaid pattern has been slowly and surely creeping into my wardrobe. It first started as a shirt and it has graduated to a sequin skirt. Pairing tartan print and a sequin piece has dominated the blogosphere for a while. I was pleasantly surprised, though, to see them combined in ONE as part of Tory Burch Fall 2012 Lookbook. And then I had a mission – to find an affordable alternative… Do you think I have succeeded?

I have enjoyed the military-inspired trend for a long time. In fact, it has been so long that it made me think – is it a trend or not? For me, a trend is a fleeting and short lived style – a couple of months or even a year or two. Infatuation with army chic seems to have started back in 2008. It is alive and well based on a recent article in Instyle magazine. Why is that? Is it because neutral colors like army green, olive and khaki look good on everyone? Or is it because it is functional and comfortable? What are your thoughts?

Although I don’t yet own winter coats in staple colors like camel and black, I decided to be bold and brighten my holidays this year with a bright red winter coat. This eye catching piece is more versatile than one would expect and I would like to prove that to you. Over the next few months, you will see it paired with:
– Jeans for taking care of daily errands
– Little back dress or other formal piece for your holiday party
– A work appropriate attire to spice up those 8-5 hours
Of course, you may want to pull off some sexy coat flashing like Anne Hathaway in Love and Other Drugs. I will let you come up with your own pairing for sexy coat flashing:)
