The October Edit: Don’t miss these new arrivals!

One of the thrills of working in fashion is anticipating all the new arrivals at the start of the next season. It’s something I’ve looked forward to my entire career! These days you can find me scouring all my favorite websites to find amazing things to share with you. Yes, new items do roll in regularly, but there are actually peak times … like right now.

For the next 4-6 weeks (my estimate), we will be at the height of new fall and winter arrivals. There are many special holiday pieces arriving, and now is the time to grab anything that catches your eye. I do often talk about adding the “right” pieces, which is necessary for making your outfits come together. But every now and then it’s okay to grab something you love — just for fun! Today’s post is the October Edit, with not-to-be-missed new arrivals. Keep in mind that I’m very particular as to what will make the list. The items below are all things I’d love to purchase myself!

On a personal note: I’m heartbroken over the situation overseas, and my heart goes out to all who have loved ones that are suffering. I’m not an expert in politics, however as a human being and a mother, I think war is always a tragedy that causes horrific suffering and despair. I pray for peace. And to all the families who are innocent and undeserving of such violence and hatred, I send strength, hope and love.❤️
