7 Things In September

Where did the Summer go?! Can you believe that September is only a few days away! Since September and the Fall season are quickly approaching here are 7 things I’m looking forward to in the upcoming month.

1. Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week New York (September 4-11)

SSfashionweek2015NewYorkFor the past few years attending New York Fashion Week has been on my “to-do” list. Each season seems to come and go and instead of being in New York I’m stuck in DC working. Even though I won’t physically be in attendance I’ll be looking forward to the live streams of the shows and collection reviews. I’m interested to see if the amount of fashion week coverage via social media declines since they are cracking down on the number of fashion bloggers attending. Here’s the week-long schedule of shows and New York Events.

2. Fall Nail Polish and Makeup Collections

Mischo Beauty Brave is Beautiful Collection (September 1)


I’ve been a follower of this brand since its humble beginnings as a beauty blog. Last year the debut collection won me over. With a smooth, chip-resistant formula, Mischo Luxury Nail Lacquers are one of the best long-lasting, chip resistant, and toxic free polishes around! I’m excited to see the fall offerings. Available exclusively at MischoBeauty.com

Christian Louboutin Nail Color (September delivery)

As much as I love nail polish I cannot reasonably justify shelling out $50 for a color I know I don’t need. Especially considering it doesn’t even include a manicure or any nail art. A part of me just wants one of these polishes for two reasons: the name and because it’s pretty to look at. The striking bottle just screams: “Buy me, I’m a collector’s item”. This new beauty collection from the shoe designer also includes a 2 for 1 deal of Loubi Primer and Gloss.

ChristianLouboutinNailCollectionPrimerandGlossThis packaged combo is said to prime and protect the nail by smoothing the surface so that color adheres and lasts. While the Loubi Gloss gives a patent leather-like shine and provides UV protection so the color stays true. It’s available for pre-order now.

MAC Artificially Wild Collection Lip Glass (September 4)

I prefer lip gloss over lipstick any day. Nudes, neutrals, and barely there shades have a special place in my makeup bag. MACs Artificially Wild Collection is available online starting August 28th but officially drops in stores on September 4th. Based on the reviews I’ve read online I need to see and try these glosses out in person.

3. Wearing White after Labor Day


Yes you can do it!  Maybe Lisa Raye was far ahead of her time by taking on the wardrobe theme of all white being the new black. All white can be fairly simple to pull off until you get to the shoes. For some reason white shoes always look cheap to me but these Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals are the epitome of a perfect, classic white sandal.


For a more affordable white sandal option, I’m also loving this strappy pair from Zara.



4. Pharrell x Comme des Garçons Girl unisex fragrance (September 1)


Who knows if I will purchase this or not but the hype around Pharrell Williams new scent has me intrigued. Girl is set to launch at Dover Street Market London on September 1st, and here in the US on September 5th. Since it will be available at Sephora locations my nose will determine if I need the 100 ml $135 bottle or if I should opt for the 10 ml travel size version at a moderate $30. As if the year of Happy wasn’t enough this woodsy scent is expected to exceed $10 million in sales within the first year. We shall see…

5. Altuzarra for Target (September 14)

Target is partnering with another luxury designer for a highly anticipated Fall Collection. Altuzarra will debut a limited-edition collection of women’s ready-to-wear & accessories for the Fall. Altuzarra for Target will be available at select Target stores & online at Target.com. In recent years I’ve always snagged at least one item from the limited collection collabs and this one is no different. I have my style eyes on the military style green and black trench coat ($89) along with the black ankle booties ($59).

6. Scandal Season 4 (September 25)


Scandal is finally coming back for Season 4! Need I say more?! I cannot wait!

7. New Fall Season (September 23)

Literally I am so excited for a new season! Each season change marks a new beginning. I’m in expectation for great things to happen. For everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under heaven. {Ecclesiastes 3}

 What are you looking forward to this month?
