We got a chance to see the newest Fall/Winter Trends for this year.  Two members of the executive team put pieces together for us to preview.  The majority of the pieces put together cost less than $300.

DSCF0654This green Ralph Lauren Dress was the 1st piece that caught my eye when I walked in the room. It’s priced at only $99 .  It comes in different colors (although I’d  prefer the green since it’s the Pantone color of the year) and would be perfect for holiday parties. 🙂

DSCF0655This is a top by Rachel Roy. It can also be worn as a short dress. It’s definitely in trend using black and white (which is hot for fall/winter as well as the stripes).  The fact the the stripes are diagonal is a plus because they’ll compliment your shape a lot better than just vertical and especially better than horizontal. It’s priced at a great value of $59.

DSCF0659This Black Leather jacket by Free People was another eye catcher. It’s retailed at $158.

 

DSCF0658 This lovely black coat is by Bar 3 and retails for $298 ( the most expensive item shown)  . I love the accent on the sleeves. The printed tee under the Black Coat is by Denim and Design $39.50. It’s a fairly new brand that’s described as cool “military chic”.  It’s paired with jeans for a comfortable look that still makes a statement.

Here are some close up pics of the shoes that were paired with the clothing.

I’d love to have these black and gold studded boots as well as these open toe/open heel booties for work. 🙂 The shoes below come in black as well.

We also had a chance to win 2 door prizes.20131024_180820Guess who one a prize???? 20131024_193739

We learned that only a few Macy’s in the Greater Houston Area have personal shoppers and this location actually has one. Her name is Deyna. That’s pretty cool.  Whenever I think of personal shoppers, I think of very high end stores.  So nice to know it’s this service is available for the everyday shopper as well.
