What I Wore :: To Welcome Fall To The Neighborhood

Part of me wants to leap up and down while flailing my arms and twirling in the street and scream 'welcome fall, you are my favorite season in the whole wide year of seasons..... can you stay forever?'. It would be like one of those epic moments in an 80's film. Then I remember I live in New York, and such antics would classify me as the 'resident crazy' to the neighbors.... and well, we don't want that to happen. Still trying to get them to not judge us for the eight million times our smoke alarm goes off because I can't cook. If you're one of our neighbors and somehow drifted to the end of the internet and found this post.... sorry, I'm learning. I swear.

I'll just admit now, this won't be the last time you hear me preach about my love for fall. This is just the first for the season. The air here in Brooklyn has an added crispness, the leaves are slowly, but surely, changing a few shades and the sun is setting an hour earlier. My mood has drastically changed now that I'm not worrying about what outfit to put together that I won't be dying of heat in and, let's face the facts, layering just makes my day!

How fun is it to discover new talents you never knew you had? Tons, right? For instance, who knew I could pull off one mean catwalk down a ridiculously super long runway you almost thought they were trying to play a joke on you. I should've trained by doing speed walks around the mall..... if only Brooklyn had a mall. 

Last week, I was asked to strut my stuff at the Old Navy 'Fit For Fall' fashion show in Bryant Park and I'm proud to announce that I didn't stumble, trip, have a bug fly in my eye or smile with lipstick on my teeth for the cameras. Hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray! The show was hosted by the all-star funny gal herself, Jenny McCarthy and those handsome Backstreet Boys even did a performance to cap off the night.

If you're familiar with my style, you're aware that jeans don't pop up ever a lot in my outfits. It's been a love/hate relationship and I'm finally coming around to the idea of them. But it honestly takes a very very special pair of skinnies for me to even consider adding them to my wardrobe and they better not be expensive either. Guaranteed, these Old Navy Rockstar Skinnies will be a staple in my fall/winter wardrobe. They are comfortable, fit snug in all the right places, come in a bajillion colors, perfect price point, make my tush look like a million bucks and well...... that's all the really matters in the end. If you want my advice, get yourself a pair. Seeing them on a varitey of women's bodies looking nothing short of amazing..... safe to say they are worth a try.

Had the pleasure of sharing the catwalk with some wonderful fellow bloggers and new friends - Amanda, Melissa, Natalie & Megan. Also, have to give a shout out to the teeny tinest little burgers they had in the VIP lounge. Well done catering service, well done.
