Over the years, Halloween costumes for women have become progressively more provocative. Even your “G-rated” Sponge Bob has been completely sluttified and now comes with a side of thigh highs.  Nowadays it seems like there aren’t even any other options and frankly, that’s just how some of us like it!!! Most women want a free pass to explore their naughty side. Halloween is a day for just that; women can wear a short skirt for no other reason than because that’s just how it came out of the package …

Now that the school year is officially in full swing, we can finally celebrate a major “check” on our to-do list as far as our back-to-school shopping goes! Besides the routine crayons, glue sticks, and pencils, each year things get a little more complicated when it comes to deciding on the backpack.  And I totally get it since this is one of the only forms of self-expression my uniform wearing little one gets to employ!!!  We settled on an adorable bubblegum pink and turquoise tie-dye one with bedazzled hearts on the front (obviously).  And just as I was about to relax (as in sit down for 30 seconds) I’m reliving the back-to-school shopping experience once again except, this time around, I’ve escaped the walls of target and entered the trés chic walls of Neiman Marcus!!! So what does Neiman’s have in common with back-to-school shopping?  This season, backpacks aren’t just for back-to-school anymore.  Every top designer from Louis Vuitton to Chanel are making their own interpretation leaving the backpack on every fashion “it” girl’s must-have list. From bags that are made of luxurious leather to those that are fashionable in design and shape, these runway worthy backpacks scream glamour!!!  Check out my favorites below!!!

Remember the 90’s as a newly pierced teenager when grunge bands ruled the radio and grunge style was all the rage??? Well this fall, the 90’s are back making plaid (a staple in every grunge look) a must-have this season!!!  However, this time around, your go–to plaid has become a little more polished and refined updating the old school grunge look we remember to a more modern “grunge gone glam!!!”  Check out my favorite plaid looks below!!! And don’t be surprised if your new found grunge-esq ensemble inspires you to revisit your favorite tracks from Nirvana, Hole, Pearl Jam (and the likes) minus the boyfriend drama, algebra, and changing for P.E. (yuck)!!!

If nothing else, every girl this season must own a pair of perfectly fit, über sexy leather pants.  Leather pants are as essential to your wardrobe as your favorite pair of jeans. The price tag is no joke, unless you opt for a less expensive, animal friendly pair (also known as vegan) that can be just as HOT!  Either way it’s an investment worth making, because they are so versatile. From casual daytime (think leather pants paired with a denim button down, cozy sweater, or just a plain white t-shirt) to a cocktail-ready evening (think leather pants paired with a tuxedo blazer and some killer stilettos), and everything in between, leather pants are proven to be a wardrobe staple!!!  If you’re like me anything that can take me from day to evening is super appealing because these days my “shower” consists of reapplying lipstick!!!  So in a haste, leather pants are a great go-to item because with just a change of shoes and accessories you can go from the playground to a fancy dinner party!!!  Anything that can transition your style so quickly and yet look so chic is a must-have for us busy bees!!! Check out my favorite leather pant looks below!!!
