Giddyup and Prrrr…

I need another pair of boots or animal print piece in my closet like I need a hole in my Tory Burch tote. But animal print cowboy boots? That’s a whole different story, morning glory. These boots were made for walking – and that’s just what I did – straight to the checkout counter on the first day of the Nordies Anniversary Sale.

Merci, Grazie, and Mamnoon, Donald Pliner!


While I’m drifting through this Long Hot Summer (unfortunately the version sans a young Paul Newman) my new purchase already has me daydreaming about….


….all the other fall fashion in my future, of course! Even though it’s 90 degrees, I’m giddy-upped with anticipation to slip my beloved leopard coat back on as soon as it drops to 50.


My Fall Forecast: cheetah, leopard, tiger and zebra are always dans l’air – with a firm foundation of frocks, textured tights, ruffles & billowy blouses, nubby knits, tweed and tall boots –  all dotting my autumn horizon. Let’s throw in this season’s ultimate transitional item, a chic anorak, for good measure.

In the next couple weeks, I’ll receive all (yes, all!) the September issues in my mailbox. September Cover Girls:  Halle on Vogue, Jen on Bazaar, Julia on Elle, JLo on Glamour, Hillary on InStyle (as in Swank – seriously??), MaryKate on Marie Claire, Gaga on Vanity Fair and Bieber on Teen Vogue (can’t you just hear the Bieber-pitched  ‘tween squeals?).

Young starlets will be featured on the spacious cover of W, while cameras roll for a documentary about the creation of its September issue under new editor-in-chief Stefano Tonchi. Can’t wait to see what he has up his impeccably-tailored suit sleeve!

Sept CGs

As I eagerly anticipate the arrival of all the issues, I’ll sip some lemonade, Long-Hot-Summer-style, and secretly pray that my mags are not in the least bit creased or wrinkled. Then I’ll  pop in The September Issue to watch for the umpteenth time and imagine what Anna and Grace disagreed on this year, while crafting my Fall 2011 lookbook.

And if my lovely leopard-loving friend Sherry is reading this – borrowing my new glam cowgirl boots should be added to the front of her lookbook!

Yee-haw for Fall.
