houndstooth It’s back — houndstooth – check out the Glamour looks right here. I love it. Glamour magazine suggests a bunch of dos and don’ts for fall. Here are some of my faves:

White isn’t going anywhere after Labor Day. Glamour suggests a winter white piece — a coat or even layering whites.

Carlisle suit

This suit, at right, is from Carlisle. It  blends some black, white and real classic style. My buddy, Barb S., sent me the catalog.

Peplums are here to stay. Sweaters are sporting some peplum style. I’m glad because I waited too long to get what I wanted for summer.

Head to toe red is in — be bold.

Get something green. Emerald is huge, but if it isn’t your shade of green, it’s OK to go green in whatever shade works for you.

Don’t give up the animal prints — I’m glad to hear that because I have my eye on some leopard print shoes!

Leather accents are on everything including skirts and suits. This one is from Carlisle.

Hats from beanies to baseball caps are in. I admire everyone who can wear a beanie, but I won’t be with you on this one. The weather is cool today, and it’s perfect shopping time for fall.

Luxury vinylI remember when flooring was very obviously a laminate, wood, stone, tile or something else. Not anymore.

I’ve seen incredible concrete and other materials that look like natural wonders. To catch up on what’s out there, read the cover story this week in House to Home right here. If that vinyl flooring story doesn’t surprise you — here’s another on leather — it’s on floors, doors and much more.

In the next few weeks, I’ll be taking you inside some breathtaking homes and showing you the ingenuity of a grandmother who made clever play kitchens for her granddaughters.
