Can I Pull Off Leather Pants?

As someone who lives in denim and goes weeks without wearing anything else, it was hard to commit to something totally different. But when the season changed and I started to rotate the clothes in my closet, I started noticing a new trend creeping in…leather pants. I immediately ignored it until I found an affordable pair that would make having fun with the trend a little easier.

Instead of second guessing myself, I jumped right in!

Since the pants on their own make such a statement, keeping it simple with something like a plain white top is a cute way to wear it. But for a date night, these pants are so much more polished than my usual go-to jeans.

I like the idea of an ‘edgier’ bottom for a change. What do you think?

#TrendWatch at the Jeffrey Fashion Cares Event

On Monday, August 26th, 2019 Atlanta’s most philanthropic and fashionable affair, Jeffrey Fashion Cares, celebrated 27 stylish years.  The annual event, which has become a mainstay on Atlanta’s social circuit, was founded by acclaimed retailer and arbiter of style, Jeffrey Kalinsky, who recently expanded his Atlanta store in Phipps Plaza and is now offering both men’s and women’s clothing, shoes, accessories and jewelry.

We enjoyed a cocktail reception and dynamic silent auction followed by a high-energy live auction where $100,000 was raised in under 15 minutes!  The evening’s pièce de résistance, a runway show featuring Kalinsky’s style selections from high-end designer looks from Celine, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Dries Van Noten, Sacai, Saint Laurent Paris, Balenciaga, Valentino, Christian Louboutin and Manolo Blahnik. The 2019 event was held at Phipps Plaza and benefits the Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta, the Atlanta AIDS Fund (AAF), and the Medical University of South Carolina.

This sold out event was beautifully executed with all of the who’s who of Atlanta, including Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms.

Fall Trend Watch

There were so many stylish Fall fashion previews that were stunning on the runway, but four trends stood out.

Fun Thigh High Boots

Fringe, fur, and animal print boots that make an outfit super playful were definitely and inspiration for #FallFashion.

Neon Colors

Surprisingly, the show featured many bright and fun colors including neons.



As expected metallic and sequin looks will be making a comeback as we head towards the holidays.

Unique Trench Coats

Coats that were belted, worn as capes, long and short were featured in this years show. Keep your layers light and easy with one of these trendy trenches.

I would like to extend a special thanks to Caren West Public Relations for keeping the Chicks on her radar and having us at this event.  We really enjoyed attending and covering this event!

Get the Edgy Yet Elegant Look With These Capes

For the past three years my best friend has been bugging me about buying a scarf or cape (thanks Vanessa!)  I am typically a sweatshirt or athleisure type of girl when it comes to bundling up, but last year I went for it and scooped up a few of these goodies and never looked back.  To tell you the truth these capes have become my #1 travel accessory because with the kids they double up as a blanket too.

I think of it as the edgy, yet, elegant way to travel.  As it turns out, these pieces are chic, simple, and incredibly warm – what’s not to love?  I did splurge this year and buy the Burberry Merino Cape, but I also have several that I have picked up under $50 that have amazing reviews.

One Cape, Three Ways

Tip: Beware of 100% wool capes / ponchos, they will be too itchy to enjoy, instead reach for wool blends and ALWAYS read reviews.

Remember this look from last year?
