rainy daze

I don't know about you, but it has been raining non-stop for about 3 days here in NC. I feel like it is 40 days and 40 nights or something, maybe I should get to building that ark. 
But in the meantime I will be looking for some warm duds that will also keep me dry. On cold rainy days, some like to spruce up the mood with bright colors, but I am loving the hunter greens, eggplants and warm taupes for the dull mood that the rain brings.

And of course you cannot get through the fall without your Hunter Boots
but check out these cool vintage umbrellas too!

long weekends

You know when there's a weekend or special event that you look forward to for months? And then it arrives...  and comes to an end before you can even blink your eyes.
This would be an accurate description of the past weekend for me.
My best friend got married and had been planning the wedding for a year.
We had appointments and parties to attend and outfits laid out.
Even when it isn't your special day, you feel special just being a part of it and I found the perfect Troubadour dress to enjoy the night in.
And now I am back at work with glorious memories filling my head and dresses swimming in my hamper waiting for the dry-cleaners.
I will be slowly recovering from the over eating, under sleeping and heavy drinking with much rest and lots of veggies.

holding down the fort

This morning the girls left for NYC to attend Coterie Market for Fashion Week 2010. Although they assure me that I am not missing a thing, I would use any excuse to get up to NYC! Days filled with zipping from meeting to meeting with fashion designers sounds oh so chic to me...  and you know they will finish up the day sipping swanky cocktails and enjoying divine dinners.

I know they will have a wonderful time and find plenty of pretty things!

Nomad Chic and Fashion Week

It is Fashion Week everywhere right now even in North Hills Raleigh, North Carolina. There have been fashionable events peppering the last few days and Fleur is participating in two more before the week comes to a close. 
Tomorrow, at a private Fall Fashion Luncheon, we will be showcasing our top, ready-to-wear, Fall Fashion Trends. Animal Prints, Sequin Numbers and Layered Looks are lining our racks in anticipation of the fast approaching fall weather. 
On the evening of Thursday, September 16th from 5:30 to 7:30 we will be celebrating "Ladies Night Out" and the end of Fashion Week with North Hills. At this event we will be unveiling our fall sweater arrivals and will be demonstrating the multitude of ways to wrap yourself up in the Nomad-Chic trend.
This event is open to ALL and we will be paired up with the famous Mura restaurant to provide our guests with fresh appetizers and glasses of champagne.  
I hope you can all make it out to enjoy a treat! 
And perhaps, pick up your first fall favorite...

Loving Leopard

Leopard prints are everywhere this fall...
and we have lots of them!
See by Chloe, Shoshanna, Anlo Jeans are all following suit,
so come on in and go wild.

*luckily, no little furry fellows were harmed in the making of this trend*

As Seen in Elle

I never did understand the need to surrender our creamy neutral whites with the passing of Labor Day. And I am happy to say, that this year I most definitely did not.
Winter Whites are making a big statement this year, with embellished fabrics, furs and feathers to printed silks and sequins. Elle always does a good job of making sure none of us miss the mark with the new hot trends and this month they completed the looks by including our favorite item in Fleur at the moment; the Pepina Sequin Sweater Jacket By Malene Birger.

This beautiful blush and silver sequined sweater jacket is nothing less than a show-stopper. Pair with black jeans and a ruffle neck blouse and you will be ready to hit the town!

Pretty in Purples

Let us be pretty in purples this fall. 
From the soft lavenders in the Jules Reid dress to the deep eggplant of the Kirribilla dress we have the color spectrum covered. Although fall is filled with grays and blacks, we have also been seeing a pop of color here and there. Neutral blushes, creamy whites, kelly greens, orangey reds and blue-y purples all evoke a sense of florescence in the fall collections. 
Christina, who doubles as our very own flower arranger, created this magnificent eye-catcher that compliments our fall palette beautifully.
Happy Labor Day Weekend!
