I don’t know about you but I’m a fan of Rachel Zoe.  Okay some of you might argue that she’s not the brightest bulb but I think she more than makes up for it in fabulousity.  The lady has endless style.  So when I learned that she had created designer wrapping paper just in time for the holidays the Martha Stewart in me wanted to start my holiday gift shopping early just to start wrapping!

I love that the fashionable fabrics from Rachel Zoe’s fashion collection have been converted to glamorous wrapping paper.   Why haven’t other fashion designers thought of this?

Here’s a fun and fabulous DIY tip:  Save all your broken jewelry, belts and charms -they’re future gift wrapping accessories!  The belt that no longer fits or is out of style one season can be re-used as a fashionable gift wrap in place of the traditional ribbon for example and the lonely remaining earring that has lost its pair can be a great add-on to a velvety bow with just a touch of the glue gun!  This year, why not upgrade your gift-giving with unique 3-D presentation that is so pretty it’s as Rachel Zoe might exclaim, “AH-Mazing!”

Perhaps the best part is that proceeds for these fashionable papers go towards Save the Children.  Head on over the One Kings Lane to purchase!

“I die.”  the 3 hour Rachel Zoe marathon that I finished today was pure fashion porn and now I’m breathless.   Rachel, being the like-minded Chanel fanatic, left me lusting over her every tweed blazer, chain purse and pearl necklace.  And did you see those endless fashions being pulled, organized and hanger-ed during the Globe award fittings? “OOC” (Out Of Control in Zoe speak).

This show fantastically feeds my weekend need for vegetation AND  fashion inspiration.

For you Rachel Zoe fans out there, check out this funny clip

As part II to my earlier Spring 2012 New York Fashion Week fashionistas post, this post will feature fashionistas caught by my FabCam.  For those of you who don’t already know, I shoot fellow fashionistas whose style I admire and take interest in.  There’s no fashion bashing here.  It’s all love!

Below is a lovely blonde who was wearing what looked like a vintage-styled blouse with Fall’s trendy snakeskin and the Valentino shoes that I’ve been dying for.

The blonde pictured above is a fellow blogger.  What caught my eye about her (besides her striking beauty) was that striking leather jacket.  But I love how she paired it with a swingy, simple dress, cute booties and a clutch that offered a bright pop of color.

Okay, so there are a lot of blonde beauties walking the tents of New York Fashion Week.  This one was a bit of a risk taker.  Check out those shoes!  They’re what I’d imagine an ultra-fabulous astronaut might rock.  I thought her outfit was super fun in that stunning color with the polka dots peeking out – polka dots are super trendy this fall.

I’m looking at this one and I’m thinking, model?  She certainly had the height and skinniness down and like much of whom you saw within the tents was some amazing eye candy.  Don’t you love her mustard colored Prada?  Mustard is a trend color this fall and this girl included it with professional ease.  The little fitted jacket looks great with the printed dress (is that Missoni?) and paired with those funky boots.

If you’re a regular reader, you know how I love Chanel purses and the black and white color theme so it’s no wonder this fashionista’s outfit caught my eye.  In Rachel Zoe’s words, those booties are “ba.na.nas!”  Readers, you should know that I’m up for selling my Chanel, calf-skin, chain-link purse.  just click here to check it out!

Since I’m on a roll with the blondes, I figured I’d make it the running theme of this FabCam post.  This lovely blonde reminded me of me.  She made a boo boo under her left knee!  I wore a band-aid like this for weeks after falling in my heels.  I blame the uneven concrete sidewalk.  (should have sued lol)  But ok back to the fashion.  Do you not love the mix of rough and casual (i.e. the military jacket) next to the elegant silk sheath and sparkly necklace?  Talk about casual cool.

Ok so who is your favorite?

A lot of fashionistas blog about their style but not a lot blog about what to wear to work.  How does one transform the conservative suit into something special and fashionable?  Working in corporate fashion challenges me to test my styling skills in this manner 5-6days a week.  And because of it, I feel I’ve honed my styling skills when it comes to what to wear to work.  Here are a couple outfit examples from the past week.

Here, I’m wearing a tank from Ann Taylor and suit from Anne Klein.  Both those basics could have been pretty simple and plain on their own but I added the fur stole for a little glam, kept my hair long and wavy (which helped keep the look less austere) and carried a designer tote.  Sometimes the accessories make your outfit.  It was sort of inspired from another Ann Taylor catalog look that I fell in love with.  See it here.

Isn’t the look gorgeous?  You can shop for it here. Ever thought about wearing a belted fur vest over a suit?  Well this picture may just have you doing exactly that.

Yesterday, I wore another Ann Taylor top (hey what can I say, they had an amazing sale this weekend), with my Victoria Secret slacks and modern blazer from Brooklyn Industries. I’ve never worn this pair of pants with this blazer but I find it really works as an alternative to the traditional suit. Sorry the lighting sucks in my bedroom!

I’m loving this metallic blouse because it’s perfect as a layering piece in the trendy lace, has a cool exposed zipper and also works worn alone since it has sleeves.  Since the lace was girly, I paired it with tougher accessories including a chain bracelet (which is actually a chain taken off one of my totes), a black bling bracelet and matching earrings. Voila!  cook work wear.

Here are a couple other shots that I loved and wanted to share.
