J.Brand Skinny Cargo
They worked for Summer and they'll still work for Fall. Add some heels/booties, blousy shirt, thick sweater and tweedy jacket and you're ready for COOL.

Kitten heels. They're back. They've been back. I wore an old pair over Easter and really appreciated the sensibility of them and my toes certainly appreciated them but I'm not totally on board yet. Is this one of those things that looks uber chic on skinny 19 year olds (see left) but sort of frumpy on the over 40 set? I'm not sure but I'll keep trying. Sometimes 4 inch heels really get on my claws.

I don't even have an iphone, never mind an ipad but some of you cool ladies do, so here's a nice way to carry it around on your way to the hockey game. Oscar de la Renta ipad leather red case. iLove it.

Puma Heritage Grip Bag
I was looking for a vintage bowling bag in robin's egg blue but wound up finding the Heritage Bag by Puma instead. Great for an overnighter or to put your gym stuff in. I think my husband will want to borrow it too which is fine. Better than him borrowing my night cream.

J.Crew Stretch Twill Pant
If you like your skinny jeans but can't wear them to work and need an alternative, here you go. J.Crew's Minnie pant is smooth, stretches, looks as good in the back as it does in the front, works with casual or even the dressiest of tops and is on sale right now. Better get it now before it gets erased.

The party's over and so is your makeup.. halfway down your face. It's amazing how easily it can smear but when you actually try to take it off, it won't budge. Not the case with Lancome's Bi-Facil eye makeup remover. This stuff gets off even the most stubborn waterproof mascara without any rubbing or scrubbing, and leaves no oily residue, so your next makeup job will stay put.

Pinking Of You
I try to change it up but some things I can't seem to let go of. Pinking of You nail color by OPI is my all time favorite toenail polish for summer. It's cotton candy in a bottle. YUM!

French Terry Crop Pant
Leave it to Victoria Secret to sex up sweatpants (with that bod, a moo moo dress would be sexy) but for those of us who need sweatpants to lounge in or do simple errands without looking like we've completely given up, these work. Pair with flip flops and tank in the summer, UGGS and cropped but cozy sweater in the winter, or spice it up with booties and a jean or leather jacket. Wear them for just about anything... except to actually sweat in.

Charm Shoe by Kate Spade
The girl can't help it. Sparkly, pink, bowed but done in a tasteful and classic pump. Need I say more? If Dorothy had worn these she would have gotten home a lot sooner.

What was feeling a bit old a few years ago is suddenly feeling new again. Your jean jacket is back. Wear it over a floral dress or your favorite dressy black shorts. The casual/girly combo never fails. If your jacket is super small you could try wearing it as a shirt, belting it and wearing with your fanciest tutu.

While I'm starting to feel the need for more matte lipstick I still love gloss. Nothing beats Stila's lip glaze (and I've tried them all). It's sheer but super high shine and it lasts (as much as a gloss CAN last). The colors are edible (not literally) and every one of them is gorgeous. Grapefruit, Apricot, Fruit Punch and Strawberry are my personal favorites. What's yours?
