I am obsessed with my new Leather Jacket from Wilson's Leather. I wanted a jacket that was black, real leather, soft/nimble, and moto-inspired without making me look like I belong at Sturgis. The key here is real leather. There's nothing worse than a big-black-garbage-bag-pleather jacket. This jacket will easily take me from the office to a night out in the city. You could even throw a light hoodie underneath and wear it to a football game or outdoor reception. Leather jackets are so versatile. I really think every woman needs one. It's a little sassy, yet still classy. My friend Laura (*shoutout!*) called this "badass ballerina." I like that better than "trashy biker." You can get a Black Rivet Cropped Moto Jacket like mine here!As for the dress, a buyer on the Zappos team gave it to me, and I just love it. The booties are Anne Klein from Von Maur like a million years ago. I tried two different hair styles, boho vs. ballerina. And boom, there you go-- a favorite fall look.

Yes, I realize I've been MIA lately, and I'm trying not to feel guilty about it. I absolutely lovelovelove blogging, but I also know it's not my job. It's my hobby. At Zappos.com/6pm.com we have been really busy getting all of our buys in line for Q4.... basically making it possible for you to shop on our site! I've been focusing all my creative energy at work, so my "inspiration tank" at home has been running on empty. But I'm back! This weekend I cleaned out my closet and started decorating my apartment for the holidays. There are lots of posts on relationships, fashion, and more coming down the pipeline. Stay tuned. For now, check out these fall updo ideas. When I wear warmer/thicker clothes and lots of layers I like to have my hair off my neck and open up my face more.
Here are 3 guidelines to follow:
1) No slicked-back librarian buns. Keep it loose.
2) Play with your natural texture. Waves and curls work well with these updo's. Hair that is one-day-dirty is easier to manipulate, too.
3) Braids, twists, and/or accessories/headbands/clips add dimension and interest. This isn't the gym. Be bold.
