Hey everybody, how was your weekend? Ready for a new week? Me? Not really. :) 

Last Friday, I had the chance to participate in something exciting during the New York Fashion Week. No, I didn’t fly to NYC. But many thanks to Lyst and Google+, I was asked to be one of the five participants to do a live interview in the Hangout with Rebecca Minkoff and her team backstage before her show! How cool, right? It was definitely a one-of-a-kind experience. Not only was it my first time trying the Hangout, but to experience it with one of my favorite designers and during NYFW, it was major major fun! We even got to ask for some tips on beauty spring trends from her team Stila Cosmetics, TRESemme, and Essie (which I will share in my later posts.)

The Hangout was moderated and hosted by Teen Vogue beauty editor, Eva Chen. Who, herself, was super awesome to talk to! Within the 5 minutes we literally had with Rebecca Minkoff, we, of course, had to ask her what was her inspiration for spring and what is the one item we should splurge on for fall? And her answer was a pair of boots… a pair of suede boots!

I am taking Rebecca’s advice very literally and already on the lookout for some. There are so many options out there! From flat boots, to chuncky heels, to pointed toe, to colored suede, here are some of my favorites that will keep you lookin’ chic and sweet for the upcoming season! Thanks for the tip, Rebecca!

    Jeanne, it so happen I am so into ankle boots lately, The problem living in tropical country is sometime too warm to wear boots, event the ankle boots, I really wish we have Fall here, because I always adore Fall colors and style :)

  • That’s so cool!! Looking forward to the upcoming content on beauty for spring 2013! :)

  • My dear Jeanne! It’s been so long! Look at you – I’m so proud of you and what your blog has become, truly. :)

    I’ve always been a sucker for suede boots and this fall, I’ve really had to tame myself. Just looking at #3 and #4 has my fingers itchy! Love! Let me know what you end up with. ;) xoxo!
