Fall Previews…in July…..

Ah.h.h.h…the end of June and right on cue: the arrival of  Fall Fashion 2010 hitting the stores NOW… It makes sense doesn’t it??? With the start of July- we are looking toward all things that spell “SUMMER”-numerous days of sweltering heat, long walks on the beach and tall glasses brimming with “ice cold” lemonade…So, why wouldn’t the purchase of a winter suit…or coat or cashmere sweater be forefront in our mind! Well, my darling Glamour Girls, this is the reality of the Fashion Industry. Over- achievers-that they are for our fashion dollars; they assume we purchased our summer dresses in January and now are “longing” for the perfect winter piece to add to our wardrobe at the height of July heat.

SO.O.O…Go forth, be fashionable, and if per chance you find yourself at your favorite store plopping down your summer dollars for the fabulous Marc Jacobs Winter coat that is on pre-sale at 25% off…

Just remember these three things:

1. Winter is just a mere 6 months away (December 21).

2. Purchasing on a Pre-Sale means you will most likely “have it” before anyone else.

3. Once you arrive home and the overwhelming urge to put on aforementioned Winter purchase strikes…just thank your lucky stars that there is the magnificent option called air conditioning, Set the thermostat for 57 degrees and you can prance around to your hearts content or until you break a sweat..whichever comes first. Happy Fall Preview …you beautiful Glamour Girl!

Pre-Fall?

In fashion there are only 2 seasons: Spring and Fall. The closest thing to Summer is Resort and that my dear fashion friends made its debut in “early” January.  Hello! Can we say snow and lots of it for most people at that time of year.  But I digress…

Here I am sitting in my office 1 week before Memorial Day. My white eyelet sundress perfectly pressed, strappy sandals lined up and ready for action, pedicure chipless in a pretty shade of coral and chunky turquoise  stone necklace ready to jump out of its brightly colored gift box when BAMB my inbox is deluged with Pre-Fall Fashions from every retailer under the sun.

Now don’t get me wrong I love a new winter coat just as much as the next girl even through I live in Sunny California. I adore the thigh high boot, the suede gladiator open toe ankle boot, the lush feel of cashmere on your body, and the allure of all the beautiful fall colors and how they instantly perk up your complexion…-but I ask you Fashion Gods can we just take a collective summer siesta and enjoy our sundresses, Capri’s, open toed stilettos and self tanner for just a brief moment?
