Ahh, New York Fashion week.  The week we all put our regular lives aside to gawk at the ready-to-wear fashion amazement that will dictate our trends for the upcoming season. Taking a cue from my favorite designer Kate Spade, I decided that my outfit for NYFW this year would include a ladylike silhouette, paired with a tough-yet-trendy leather & herringbone jacket; perfect for fall.

I have to say my jaw dropped when I found this little black dress from Kate Spade complete with embellished jeweled neckline at my local TJ Maxx.  I had no idea they carried my very favorite designer. With a neckline like this, I didn’t even need a statement necklace.

I’m not one to normally wear all black, so in true personal fashion, I had to grab a punch of color to set it off.  I knew I had to have these beautiful lime green snakeskin beauties when I found them (in the clearance section no less!) for $39…WHAT?!

What were your favorite shows this year?

I was definitely diggin’ Kate Spade’s more relaxed wear complete with tons of fun abstract floral prints and of course my favorite–STRIPES! The garden-esque colors made me smile. Take a look yourself!

Other lines I was lovin’ on? Lela Rose’s metallics & a-lines, and of course Mara Hoffman’s eclectic colors and prints!

Tell me your favorites in the comments section!
