Posh Obsession! Leather Biker Jacket

My addiction quite simply...classically rebellious. Leather biker jackets are big this Fall so there are many great options to choose from...super amped up (read lots of hardware) or more subtle versions.  Opt for a version that fits your lifestyle.  If you are more corporate than bada$$ opt for subtle..and vice versa. Stay Posh!

Posh Obsessions! Tuxedo Pants


My posh obsession this week is tuxedo pants,  a classic menswear style that really works for women. Versatile, they go pretty seamlessly from work to play. There is an amazingly flattering optical allusion that those big vertical lines can provide by taking eyeballs up and optically squeezing you in. 

The craze for tuxedo pants hit the market last spring.  It's just starting to hit critical mass.  Expect to see a lot of this for fall. Designers are striping it up--on pants, jeans etc.   You can either take the more polished route with a pair of trousers or keep it casual with denim versions.  I'm still on the hunt for the perfect black pair that go from day to night...

JCrew currently has a few great options, the andie chino which pretty much sold out and is on backorder.  Luckily, I got a pair early. Another JCrew option is the Pixie tuxedo stripe which the salesgirl talked me into...still on the fence about these.  They read more track & field than tuxedo to me...to be continued. Shopbop and Piperlime also have some cool options. The penultimate is of course the St. Laurent version which makes me swoon every time I see them.  Stay Posh!

Posh Style Alert! Laid Back Chic

So my philosophy is that usually it is the person that is not trying to be fashionable that always looks the most chic. It's essentially the reason why Parisian women get it right most of the time.  They are not trying to be fashionable, they just are.

When in doubt, dial it back a notch.  Here is a bit of inspiration.  Stay Posh!

Posh Obsessions! NYFW

So unfortunately, I was not one of the fabulous bloggers invited to cover NYFW from the front row...BUT I can continue to dream and obsess over instagram.  Anyhoo, Swagger NY created a fantasy Fashion Week world, inhabited solely by our favorite 90s cartoon characters like Daria,  Lisa Simpson, and more.


The mag collaborated with mega-Italian designer Michele Moricci to come up with the six characters  and the shows that they’d attend in that specific designer’s A/W 2013 threads (e.g. Lisa Simpson is in Marc Jacobs for the Marc show). They say and I quote the "results are amazing," and I agree. Stay Posh!
