As October fast approaches, and summer wardrobes transition to longer layers, darker colors, and cute boots, we asked our favorite fashion pros to give us a few thoughts on how they’d style an item from our Fall Collection.  And by fashion pros, we mean fashion bloggers of course! Who better to know the best ways to style any outfit than real women like you! Today we give you a few looks from two of our favorite Arizona-based bloggers, Sheila of Chasing Sheila and Natalie of When Life Hands You a Pear…

Each lady was given our Emerald Elegance Perfect Shrug from our Fall 2013 Collection and asked to style a head-to-toe look using our jacket.  This machine washable lightweight shrug, made in the USA, has a regal emerald and gold-toned print and is adorned across the front with several jewel embellishments. We were delighted by what they came up with. From dressed down in a t-shirt, jeans, and boots, to a sexy skirt and skinny belt combo, these ladies really demonstrated the versatility of this flirty jacket.

We love the detail in this image from Natalie; it really shows off the shimmer from our jewels and her beautiful gold necklace as well!  Natalie is a fashion blogger based in Mesa; she showcases her day-to-day outfits with a focus on “budget-friendly” looks and ones that flatter her pear shape.  We love her real woman status!

Doesn’t Natalie look great here?! So sassy! We think this look is very business casual; we love how she paired the shrug with a toned down chambray shirt to offset our bling.  And the skinny belt is genius!  She cinches in the shrug and shows off her beautiful waist. More of this outfit can be found over at Natalie’s site here.

You all know Sheila; she is by far one of our favorite bloggers and is a loyal customer, winner of our Blogger Style Contest, and a model in our latest Fall Collection.  Her blog Chasing Sheila is a unique blend of her own outfits, commentary on the fashion world, and her spotlights on fashion designers committed to humanitarian work.

We love that Sheila sent us not one, not two, but three! of her favorite looks with our Emerald Elegance Perfect Shrug.  Showing off a casual look here, Sheila also gives us a look for the office, and for a night out on the town.
