I don’t usually wear lip color, but in the winter I will try anything to brighten up a pasty complexion. I found this image on Pinterest, and can’t find its original source, so if anyone knows who makes this lip color, do tell! There is nothing more I’d like than to wear these perfect deep red lips for winter. I also find all the colors in this image make beautiful wintery palette.

It’s almost time to bring out the heavy toppers for a season that I have a love/hate relationship with, winter. I love to dress in layers but hate being cold and wet, wandering around the streets of New York. Every year around this time I gather inspiration for the perfect winter coat, swearing that this year I will invest in a new one. As most New Yorkers, the majority of my wardrobe is black, so with a number of black coats already in my closet, I have declared navy blue as the coat color of the season.
Slightly less severe than black, this inky blue hue can pull any look together with an air of ease. I love the classic nostalgic feeling navy blue has on my favorite coat shapes of the season.
The hooded parka is just the right amount of function and fashion making for a perfect city coat at any price, from the Étoile Isabel Marant version with real fur trim or the more than affordable Zara style.
When I woke up super early this morning to the crisp almost-autumn air, all I could think about was this cozy chic, effortlessly styled editorial from The Last Magazine. Styled by one of my all time favorite stylists, Alastair McKimm, he melds the 50 layers of gray into one beautifully cohesive collection of textures and structural silhouettes.

As New York Fashion Week and Fall like temperatures roll in, I am most excited about wearing white. Fall’s freshest shade, shows no color at all but speaks volumes with its untraditional timing. Here is a sneak peek of some of the white pieces I will be wearing during Fashion Week and for the rest of Fall.
I wear a lot of black (shocker!) so white accessories guarantee to stand out. I love the form and texture of my new white Ceramic Necklaces by Shayla Cox. This Wool Covered Latex Band was given to me by artist Jessica Sanders, as leftover art materials. I’ve waited all summer to wear it, and now is the time!
Borrowing from the boys is nothing new to me, but for Fall it is a big trend. I love my Bottega Veneta Shirt Dress and Christopher Esber mock neck shirt. Great layering pieces for when Fall weather really hits.
Be sure to follow me on instagram @DeSmitten to see how I put these pieces to work during all of the Fashion Week festivities.
