Breaking news ladies: I have found the Holy Grail. Well... the Holy Grail of jewelry that is. Bauble Bar is officially the most brilliant thing to happen to the jewelry world. It's so nice to see a place so dedicated to jewelry and jewelry alone -- giving that extra bit of attention to make all of their products the epitome of charm. With an array of bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings there truly is something for absolutely anyone. The way the brand can transition from elegant to trendy to sweet and girly amazes me. I honestly cannot think of a company that does jewelry better than Bauble Bar. I'm not kidding, like you have to go check it out. Now. Little do you know that before I began this post I had to wipe the drool off my keyboard from looking at the stellar earrings. Deciding what I want to buy there may be the second hardest thing I have ever had to do. Right after deciding whether to accept Ryan Gosling or Tom Hardy's proposal (still haven't quite decided.) Really though, if you haven't checked out Bauble Bar you need to ASAP. Plus, they do this awesome thing where every Monday an item is marked down to $20 and every Friday one is marked down to $10. The fun part is that they email you a clue and it's your job to find out what item it is. So go on ladies, find yourself some sparkle!

Fur, fur, fur. The one thing I have got to have and the one thing I'm assuming all fashion lovers around the world are dying for is fur. Let me say, that although I have no problem with real fur myself I know that some people out there do. Faux fur is fabulous as well. But really, it is almost impossible to flip through a fall 2013 collection or walk into a store right now without seeing fur. It is literally everywhere. Fur is back and here to stay. It is the number one way to make an outfit pop. A simple outfit with a brilliant fur coat, like the one from the Kenzo fall line pictured above, is definitely going to get you noticed and make you feel amazing. So if you don't already have your fall fur piece, I suggest you go change that, like now. Faux or real every woman needs a little fur in her life.

So, I am totally crushing on socialite and It-Girl Olivia Palermo's youth meets class style (her unbelievably drool-worthy beau isn't too hard on the eyes either.) Olivia may be the perfect mix of youthful fun and class. I swear, every event you see the girl at she knocks it out of the park. Playing with patterns and textures can prove to be tricky yet all of Olivia's looks seem to be right on point. Although I totally adore Olivia's style as it is, Palermo circa 2008 may be one of the best fashion seasons for one person I have ever seen. ADORE. On a side note, there are only 4 days left until the Teen Vogue Fashion University 2013 kick off party! Be sure to check back this weekend for updates on one of the most memorable weekends of the year.

It's official, Marc Jacobs has left the Parisian luxury power house, Louis Vuitton. But in true Marc Fashion, he went out with the most memorable show this season. But who would expect anything less from the master of showmanship? Dark black and blue hues brought a mournful tone to the show as if Jacobs wanted to say his au revoir through color instead of words (there is also a strikingly obvious pattern in color when looking back at his Marc Jacobs show in New York.) With loose-boyish silhouettes and an overwhelming number of flats it is safe to say the collection was designed for the modern day women on the street. Making comfort and style play hand-in-hand with one another there is no doubt that this collection will be flying off the shelves- although the fabulous bedazzled thong and Louis Vuitton painted bodysuit may be a little much for everyday wear. But what's a Marc Jacobs directed show with out a little provocative edge? And when you're done rewatching the production that is this show for the 500th time (because it's so amazingly perfect, duh) go watch the rest of Marc Jacobs' shows through his time at Louis Vuitton and see if you can spot the similarities.

Nicole Miller's SS14 collection has taught me two things. One, Chloe Norgaard looks amazing with green hair and two, nothing can beat a great pattern and bold colors. The collection really packed a punch to say the least. But let me tell you, I am completely in love with it. You know the way that you think about that mega-hot guy at the gym all the time? Yeah, well that's how I think about this drool-worthy collection. The way the clothes play with color, texture, and geometrics all at the same time is absolutely perfect. There is no way you could look at this line and not find something you love. With so many designers trying to be overly sophisticated and modern, this youthful and funky collection was so refreshing. If you haven't seen the show already go to http://newyorkfashionweeklive.com/nicole-miller-replay-mercedes-benz-fashion-week-spring-2014

With whimsical prints, light fabrics, and enough frills for all of Fashion Weeks, Red Valentino has truly created the ultimate girly-girl collection. If Eloise at the Plaza went to Wonderland in her 20s this is definitely what she would wear. And we all know she'd have to be the best dressed girl out there. The label did a great job of adding more grown up touches with leather flowers and a little more sophisticated play on youthful silhouettes. The butterfly print dress really needs to make its way into my closet ASAP. Although you could argue that the collection is a little TOO young I think the line is just perfect. There is no girl in the world who does not want to relive the days of "tea" parties and ballerina dreams. Red Valentino's new line is the perfect time machine for that.
