Just as the holiday shopping season
officially gets underway, Instagram this week became the latest social media
platform to throw its hat into the social shopping ring. Its newly-launched
shopping feature allows brands to tag products and merchandise, the
same way users currently tag their followers in a picture, and that “Tap to
view” tag provides product information like price. There is not yet any
purchasing from within the app but the company is working with 20 brands,
including Kate Spade and J. Crew, and optimistically taking this first step
despite previous social shopping failures from Pinterest, Twitter and even

The evil eye is beautiful jewelry that some believe ward off bad luck or ill will from someone. There is no question that mystical jewelry is on the rise. Maybe its the progression of the witchy trend but wearing protective jewelry is now a trend. Though it is not new, it is not uncommon. Nearly every major culture believed in the "gaze of the malice". McQueen, Givenchy and Chanel all are showing eye-shaped jewelry. So fashion now is offering us a way to protect ourselves.
The NY Times is reporting for the spring/summer 2017 that hands are out. Well, that they are out of fashion. Designers are concealing women's hands inside a sleeve. The hem hanging between the third knuckle and several inches below the fingertips.
Is this a way to promote cool and now ? A garment that prevents a woman from opening a door or using her phone. Well of course you can open doors and use your phone, you just have to roll up your sleeves !
When the weather turns crisp and cool, so should your fashion.
#1. Statement Coat - A coat is an everyday necessity. Everyone wants to be warm and chic. Spend those extra bucks for one that is well made and looks well on you!
#2. Fun Shoes - Get a pair of metallic when you want your shoes to be the focus. Neutral colors let your outfit shine.
#3. Great Handbag - Autumn is the season for a fabulous purse. Leather or suede it doesn't matter. Skip black and choose a burgundy or navy instead, they're neutral too.
#4. Thigh high boots - Need I say more !!! Tweet
