This highly anticipated week of non-stop fashion shows, events and after parties is everything it seems and more. It’s the time of year when fashion’s most elite comes together to see the latest trends and most importantly look good! I was invited to make an appearance at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York to attend The Accessories Project among other events.

On the morning of September 9th a few of the most influential people in the industry came together to discuss current and upcoming trends. The Accessories Project was a panel discussion and networking reception featuring Jill Zarin, from one of my favorite Bravo reality shows The Real Housewives of New York. Other speakers included Raakhee Mirchandani Singh who is the managing editor of the NY Daily News, Denise Albert and Melissa Gerstein who are the co-founders of The Moms and Lillian Vasquez who is the style expert for The Cheap Chicas.

The ladies on the discussion panel looked absolutely stunning in their fall outfits. Leather jackets were a common trend among the women. Most of them wore black with a pop of color and they all accessorized beautifully. How to wear bold accessories was a hot topic at the event as well as the accessory fashion trends for fall/winter of 2013 and spring of 2014. Jill Zarin spoke about blue being the color of the fall/winter season which I happen to be obsessed with right now!! I had the opportunity to speak with Jill Zarin after the discussion panel and she shared her gorgeous new jewelry collection with me. The collection is available at Lord & Taylor as well as Macy's. What do you all think of it?
