camel collection clothes and accessories collage headerThe hot new trend in color is the ever-chic looking hue of camel.  The color has been popular for a couple of years now but has recently experienced an explosion in popularity and right fully so. The smooth neutral tone has the unique ability to pair extremely well with nearly everything. Also something about the color steps up the perception of quality and luxury.  Add a classic camel, wool scarf to an ensemble and instantly make the look appear more expensive.

Though the color probably works best in fall, I’ve always been a firm believer in breaking a few fashion rules. I’ve gathered a couple of fabulous pieces that I thought you might be interested in adding to your collection.  Of course current Miami weather won’t permit me to rock that amazing wool cape but some of my friends up north are still dealing with some pretty chilly weather and could totally go for a piece like that. That is the only reason I envy you northern friends.  Have fun sporting your warm camels. I think I’ll make a move on those caged sandals.  Yup, don’t mind if I do.

My work place isn’t super stuffy so I can take certain liberties with my ensembles that I might not be able to take, say if I worked at a law firm.  I get to have a little more fun with my outfit choices and how I accessorize but what if… what if I worked in a super creative atmosphere like an edgy ad agency or high-fashion office? What if I worked at Vogue?  Gasp. Oh the outfits I would stroll in wearing. I can only imagine how glorious it would be.  Let’s not even talk about the access to fashion I would have at my disposal on a daily basis.

In honor of that dream scenario I put together this little number. It’s the kind of brow raiser that you wouldn’t typically see in an office environment but totally work appropriate if you work in an office full of creative types who appreciate a little risk taking.

Platforms or pumps?

What do you think? Switch out the ultra-high, funky platform heel for a somewhat more conservative red pump. This shiny, patent-leather pump is still a little spicy but more of a tamer option if you're trying to get away with the look at work.
