I passed by the Knoll store this morning and saw a Saarinen Executive Chair upholstered in a rich, wintry tweed sitting in the window. Then, I got my computer up and running and saw this smart J. Crew Wool Tweed Oona Coat ($550). Then it dawned on me: it's Fall. I'm not really one to redecorate with the seasons, but I do like the idea of introducing this textured, graphic material into my home. The DwellStudio Painted Tweed Blush Throw Pillow ($106) is a start; it offers the pattern of tweed without the heavy material. See a few more tweed and tweed-inspired items when you read more
With Mad Men coming back onto television next week, it seems fitting that fall's classic tweed dresses are hitting shelves. These lean, structured frocks in shades of brown and grey are a throwback to the days when women were dressed up and covered up at all times. Wear these classic dresses to the office or to a daytime event. Style them with red lipstick and a loose bun to play up on the retro associations.
Bella, I mean, Kristen Stewart, is looking pretty confident promoting the highly anticipated movie Twilight in her trusty tweed pocketed dress. Twilight tweed is a classic fabric updated with modern styling. Today's tweed options come in all forms — dresses, skirts, shorts, and jackets — just be sure to select something that feels fresh. The best part of twilight tweed? It's immortal.
As Fall slowly but surely creeps up on us, it's good to think about how you'll cover up once the weather turns chilly. How about with this Tweed Cape Coat? It's roomy, so it'll be able to handle all your layers, and it can work for sizes extra small to medium. I think Fall without this coat would be a little less fabulous. If you agree, bid away.
The current bidding price is at $32 and the auction ends on Thursday, Aug. 28. Good luck and happy bidding!
Here's what she's wearing:

- Skirt: Alexander Wang
- Scarf: Vintage Gucci

When the weather turns it automagically puts me in the mood for tweed. This classic fabric is resilient and toastie — and, regardless to what you may think, it can be sexed up.
To the left is the Salvatore Ferragamo Fall collection and those tweed pants are powerful stuff. You may not have plumage laying around for such an exotic top, but show a little decolletage, hike yourself up in heels and top it of with some crimson lip rouge. Katherine Hepburn: are you in there?
Tweed is traditionally associated with the primp and proper (i.e. Chanel), but this L.A.M.B. Metallic Tweed Blouson Jacket, $485, is anything but. It's more so rugged, motorcycle-chic, but with a girlie twist. Still, I'm going to have to have a talk with Gwen about why it's so expensive.

Kate Walsh wore a sophisticated tweed top while getting gas a couple days ago — a bit dressy for the gas station but I'm not complaining! What especially appealed to me was the cowl neck and crossover pleat. It's luxurious, unlike anything we've seen, and it's Marie Marie's Empire Top, $398. Put some fun in Fall by adding this piece to your autumnal wardrobe.
One of my favorite cheap and so cute brands is having an up to 75% off winter clearance sale. Ok, ok we've all checked out dELiAs super saucy Spring merch but what about some lingering winter garb? And now that we've seen the New York collections for Fall, we know what current trends will prevail. Here is a tweed dress, that will be appropriate for at least the next couple seasons - creative tweeds were abundant and I feel you can do a lot with this little number.
