Bluff NY- www.bluffny.com
I love all the statement shoes this season, but I am hesitant to invest in a pricey pair of edgy booties or studded stilettos. This “shoelery” collection features feathers, chains, studs and more that you can temporarily affix to your footwear, taking a plain pump from basic to bling in seconds.
2Bandits Boot Jewelry- www.the2bandits.com
With the rock and roll fashion trends for fall/winter- my basic black boots need a style upgrade. But who wants to invest in a new pair when next season, it could very well be all about classic simplicity again? Strap these around your ankle and voila- your boots are boosted.
TheRackTrap- $8 at www.theracktrap.com
It seems like the more chic the clutch, the less you can fit inside, right? So stick this in your bra and you have created a little extra storage space with no style sacrifice!
YummieTummie Tanks- www.yummietummie.com
Shoulder pads are back in a big way- and snug blazers with puffy sleeves necessitate a nipped in waist. These tanks are a MUST- they completely contour your core and never create the dreaded muffin-top effect. You are completely sucked in and sleek.
Stila MakeupPlayer- $69.90 www.stilacosmetics.com
Part makeup artist-style train case, part media player docking station with speaker system, this portable vanity gives me the tricks and tools to create even the most daunting looks. Just download tutorials from the StilaBeautyTube onto the mobile device of your choice, and press play.
InstaButton- $15 for 2 www.instantbuttonforjeans.com
Fresh out of the dryer jeans may look good, but often they don’t feel so good. I like to keep these handy in case I want a little extra breathing room- this faux-button looks just like the real deal, but can be strategically placed as needed.
