Hurricane Irene is approaching and everyone is preparing for her arrival. Like Dorothy in The Wiz (yes that’s correct Barry Gordy’s version), I clicked my heels 3x with the excitement of getting caught up in a whirl wind of new trends for the coming Fall/Winter season.From flirtatious ruffles with feminine flair; the baroque warriors and ice queens; eye-catching over-sized cocktail rings; creative designs with minaudieres and furs; to ladies of the jungle in survival mode getting down to business to suit up.

So while as Mayor Bloomberg announces the city will be shut down by noon tomorrow. It sucks I am unable to go out to take photos of what I see in the streets and stores, I will be sharing what I’ve come across reading my emails, fashion magazines and fashion blogs.

Cocktail rings in a wide variety of shapes, materials, over-sized stones or cluster of swarovski crystals and vibrant colors. Cocktail rings are the must-haves for the fall and winter seasons.
