There are two rules I abide by when shopping: function and fashion. That's why I'm so smitten with the resurgence of drawstring bags. This sporty, luxe attitude goes perfectly with today's casual cool style and even translates well when paired with tailored ensembles. Oh, on another note, I purchased a crackly gold metallic version of this Foley + Corinna Drawstring Bag ($445) a couple months ago — so rad.
Tear, a good friend of mine is moving to Japan next week. I'll miss her dearly, but I know she's in for a great adventure. To send her off with good memories, a group of us are taking her to a favorite eatery, Lime, for a sayonara brunch. Can you help me put together a cunningly cute outfit that includes a jumpsuit? Remember this is just a brunch, so nothing super fancy.

Excuse me while I scoop my jaw off the floor. I didn't think I could love Foley + Corinna more than I already do, but my lust just got stronger thanks to its kickass Fall look book. Dana Foley and Anna Corinna dreamt up a collection of handbags made in rich Autumnal hues and buttery soft leather. The convertible bag remains a Fab fave, but this smart sling bag comes in a close second. Isn't it a cool, uptown take on backpacks?
W Hotel is no longer just your go-to place for lodging. It's now also going to be your go-to spot for fashion. The hospitality chain just announced it's launching a fashion line made up of apparel and accessories. Designers such as Alex and Ani, Foley + Corina, Lauren Merkin, VIX, and Wink have been tapped as designers. "W is a design-led brand, therefore fashion is a tool to engage our guests in design. The people we're after are trendsetters and fashion-forward. We have a passion for fashion," said Eva Ziegler, global brand leader of W. The line, dubbed Global Glam, will be introduced on Sept. 10 at Fashion's Night Out.

You know Fab's in a Fall state of mind when my most wanted go from neon and skin-baring to jewel-toned and cozy. Though I will be holding off on wearing tights for as long as possible, I already have my sights set on some slouchy boots, amazing bags, festive jewelry, and sexy separates. Whether you're going back to cool or back to the grind, do so in fabulous style.
No matter the state of the economy, it never hurts to invest in items that give more bang for your buck. I'm talking about things that are convertible, reversible, and that can be styled in many different ways. Are your ears perked? Good because I did some searching and found 14 items that are way worth your money. The most expensive item, and my favorite, is this Foley + Corinna Reversible Mid City Tote ($485). I can wear it on the suede side when I'm feeling posh and the leather side when I'm craving punk.
Is it just me or is it red hot in here? I'm not opposed to donning a LRD but I prefer to take the alternate route with red accessories. They're ultra sexy, ultra sassy, and not so in-your-face. I don't need to tell you why this Christian Louboutin Glittered Platform Pump ($775) is scorching hot. All I need to do now is tap my heels three times for all my fashion wishes to come true.
Lucky for me, Santa Cruz is just one(ish) hour away, so a day-trip is super easy. A friend invited me to head down there with her last weekend for a day of shopping and chilling — we had so much fun! As predicted, the temperature was in the mid-70s so I needed you to help me put together a cute, layered outfit. I was thinking something floaty and definitely a hat.
I started you off with this Foley + Corinna Disco City Bag ($198); the juicy color and petite size had me at hola. Let's see my top three picks!

Last weekend, I headed to the exclusive King Tut exhibit at the de Young Museum here in SF — so exciting. I saw Tutankhamun's tomb, ancient artifacts, and precious objects relating to the 18th dynasty. Cool, huh? My educational self-immersion took a whole day, so I needed you to put together a sleek ensemble that would withstand a lot of walking and staring.
I started you off with these Giles & Brother Tiny Pyramid Stud Earrings ($78) because they're an ode to beautiful, ancient Egypt. Let's see what you came up with!
