To summarize…
*Fun tights that are worth the trip to add to your wardrobe for the season;
*The mustard bubble cord skirt is a fun casual option for either business or weekend;
*Colorful trench coats;
*Poncho style neutral knit top is a great versatile option;
*Faux fur vests!

I have an interesting relationship with this brand. For one, I love the pricing and their relationship to Gap. On the other hand I have a hard time with the fit of their shirts and pants and, well, a lot of the garments I find there. But, that is unique to my specific body shape and I won’t let it cloud my judgment about their Fall 2010 collection. This actually has a lot of potential.

What I love about this 3 piece look are the colors. I love color and I really love the contrast between the 3 pieces. I think this is a great option for business casual. Although the bubble skirt is short I would still see this as a potential look for non-client facing positions where attire is casual. But, I do feel that slim thighs & hips are best suited for this look. If you fall in a different category I want to encourage you to look for a different shape but the same color. No matter what shape or body type you have I definitely recommend those tights which are killer!

This is another great piece. Although I would prefer to see this in person so I could better gauge the weight & feel of the fabric. But, true to my roots, I love this again because this is a gorgeous bright red. A perfect piece for those with a bold personality.

This cowl neck wide sleeve knit poncho style top is a great companion for a pair of straight leg trousers. You can add a bold necklace & bangles to offset the neutral colors but stick with a skinny belt. A wide or thick belt can add too much bulk to your look. And don’t forget an amazing pair of heels or wedges. I love the neutrality of this piece. It can be dressed up for the office or dressed down for the weekend. To dress it down just add a narrow leg pant or jean and ballet flats.

Fur. I like the look & feel of real fur and my jury is still out on the faux fur options. But I can only form my best opinion about the quality of a fur by touching it since looking at a picture can be deceiving.

With that being said, I wanted to point out these 2 faux fur vests in their collection for those who are comfortable with the faux. Honestly, once I get a feel for the black option I may purchase this one for my wardrobe.

Finally, this is another one that I actually picked because of the tights. But, overall this is workable look with the exception of the argyle sweater. I would probably add a different cardigan. But don’t get me wrong. I like the cardigan but I think it should be worn with a different look.
