Style Wise Trend Foolish

My Favorite Fashion and Accessory Finds this week

I’ve been blogging for six years. Then as now, my philosophy is, “keep it simple; less is more, and buy for longevity and not a quick fix and disposability.” And yet, it’s not always easy to find style and elegance that lasts and is a good investment. The middle ground between high-end designer wares and fast fashion is not easy to find. But, if you persevere, you will find it; it just takes a little more work. With this in mind, I set out to see what my favorite purveyors of style are up to. They are not the latest or trendiest brands, but ones that delivery consistent quality and style; a win win!

Here are some of my favorite Fashion and Accessory finds this week. It’s a little bit of everything, but that’s what happens when you keep an open mind! Most important, you don’t need to live in Manhattan to own them.

M. GEMI

fashion and accessory finds in manhattan m-gemi-velvet-boot, $348

A navy velvlet boot from M. Gemi, $348 an Italian on line store offering stylish well-priced shoes. It’s opened a brick and mortar store at 120 Wooster in Soho where you can check out lots of great styles. The store does not carry the inventory so you try the shoe and it gets mailed to your home.

COS

fashion and accessory finds in manhattan-a-line-wool-jacket-250

COS is the more upscale sister brand of H&M.  Most of its clothing is loose and unstructured (very Scandinavian) so it does not always look flattering on the hanger. So do try things on.  The quality is quite good and the minimalism is refreshing. Here’s a gorgeous wool jacket from COS, $250; perfect for these balmier days of winter.

From COS a cozy short-sleeve sweater. $115. At the store, the mannequin had a long sleeve white blouse under it, and it looked fabulous.

Another winner from COS, black leather shopper, $175

fashion and accessory finds in manhattan-slip-on-leather-shoes-125

From COS, slip on leather shoe, $125. If you like a more modern version of the ballerina flat, this one’s for you.  Great quality, and soft leather in chic khaki.  It also comes in black.
