GWYNETH PALTROW + J. CREW

I don't usually post about fashion, but when two favorites come together I think it warrants a post, no?  I received an email from Gwennie (via Goop) wherein she teamed up with J.Crew for a transition into fall preview. It was executed flawlessly, Gwyneth modeling the clothes and then a little link on how to get the look.  I am a G.P. fan, so this sent me over the edge of euphoria when coupled with styling eye candy powerhouse J.Crew. I don't spend a lot on my wardrobe, (unless it's shoes or handbags which I feel are investment pieces), but I do like the quality of a lot of my J.Crew acquisitions. Their belts last forever and I don't know what they do with their ribbed tanks, but they seem to never lose color or shape; I have a navy ribbed tank that has lasted me years

I am getting excited about fall in my new neck of the woods, previously in the City of Angels we didn't really have any delineation between the seasons, September often brings a second coming of summer (but hotter than you would ever like), so it will be novel to experience a seasonal change. Maybe I can rejoice in the Pumpkin Latte cravings with the rest of the blogosphere, as the thought of a Pumpkin latte in September in Los Angeles is about as enticing as getting bamboo shoots pushed under your fingernails. On another note, I know I promised downloads and hopefully I will have those ready for you by tomorrow! I am also announcing another winner for the monogram giveaway tomorrow so I hope you stop on by to see if it's you!

Krista I heard it has gotten up to 105! AND the valley I can.not.imagine. Wouldn't it be awesome to be able to will a season by ordering a latte? September was always the hardest month for me in L.A., Indian Summer is what my mom would call it. Stay cool lady!!!

Susan, weren't the outfits done so well? They were classic and chic, now if only I was a tall, willowy blond, hah!

No truer words...it has been the second coming of summer...truly hellacious! Enjoy the seasons and the weather :) because in my neck of the LA woods, it topped out at 112 one day last week.
