October 1st: International Coffee Day
Brown is the Black for Fall & Winter Fashion in 2018. It’s softer, and comes in a variety of shades from dark chocolate to caramels. The western trend has also influenced this move from black to brown this season. As much as we love the “Back in Black” seasons, we agree this is a welcome transition to an earthy palette.

October 10th: National Handbag Day
The invention of the railroad was also the birth of the handbag. With so many places now reachable by the average citizen, women realized they needed stylish, practical options to aid in travel. Fast-forward to today, and we can truly celebrate the handbag as Art. Every woman should own one “statement” bag, which is easily balanced by a monochromatic palette in your wardrobe.

October 16- Angela Lansbury’s Birthday
Dame Angela Brigid Lansbury is the ultimate Prime Woman. Despite her non-stop career achievements she always kept the same, simple personal style of a pant-suit and collared shirt; the lips were an understated red, and who can forget the iconic spectacles worn in her role in Murder She Wrote? Our pantsuit here is a nod towards the plaid trend this season, and the silk shirt is perfect to play on the 90s trend we are seeing a lot of this season.

October 25- International Punk for a Day
Patti Smith described Punk as a place for “Creative Freedom,” and we think everyone needs a little of that in their lives. Here, our punk ensemble plays on the subtle side, with a pop-art inspired-colored, houndstooth plaid pant, a crisp white blouse, studded cardigan and slinky black bootie. Each piece is wearable outside of this holiday, which is an added bonus; you can still sneak in a bit of the rebel into other outfits anytime you need to channel your renegade energy.
