As summer winds down and our eyes become accustomed to a fall color palette, it can be a challenge to get dressed in the morning! Here in the San Francisco Bay Area we are seeing cool fog in the morning and warm temperatures in the afternoon. This means we need to wear layers!

I love this beautiful dress from IBISS Boutique located in downtown Willow Glen at 1100 Lincoln Avenue. The 3/4 sleeve dress is made from a lightweight cotton in a beautiful shade of burgundy. The maxi-dress looks like a fall piece yet offers lightweight appeal making it perfect for warm summer days. All I need before the fog burns off is my denim jacket! Love that!

The necklace I wore with the dress is also from IBISS Boutique. I love how it blends perfectly with the stripes. The neutral ivory color is perfect as we move from summer into fall since it can be worn with any color palette, any season, any year! How is that for the perfect investment?!

IBISS Boutique has a huge selection of jewelry which is both on-trend and classic. Their website, MissIbiss.com has a great selection from the store, but of course the store itself has a huge and fabulous inventory which is not to be missed!

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, please take some time to pop into IBISS Boutique at 1100 Lincoln Avenue in San Jose. You will love the shop!

Black and white is a huge trend for fall; but another combination I am in love with for the cool weather season is black and cream. I love this classic color combination and it feels more understated than black and white; especially in professional settings.

The print on this fabulous pair of pants from San Jose’s IBISS Boutique is funky and I love how this sweaterfrom Banana Republic offsets the print perfectly. The pants are made from an amazing polyester blend which does not wrinkle at all! These pants will be perfect for packing in my suitcase next month when I travel to New York Fashion Week. No ironing = love!

IBISS Boutique has a large selection of prints on pants, skirts, tops and dresses which are on-trend and perfect for transitioning from summer into fall. If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, please take some time to check out this fabulous boutique. You can also shop from the IBISS website at MissIBISS.com.

It is so easy in this day and age to shop online. With all of the major retailers at our fingertips, sometimes we forget about the amazing boutique’s our city streets have to offer. I recently discovered iBiss Boutique in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose through Instagram. After connecting online, I hopped in my car and drove over to the fashionable hotspot to check it out. I was so impressed! Not only does iBiss have a large selection of on-trend attire, the accessories; especially the jewelry collection, is to-die-for!
iBiss Boutique has the most amazing décor inside. The merchandise is arranged by color and easy to shop. I spent over an hour checking everything out! Ultimately I came home with a fabulous maxi dress which is perfect to wear as we transition from summer into fall. I also found the perfect pair of printed pants to take with me next month when I attend New York Fashion Week. To top it all off, the store’s fabulous owner showed me the perfect necklace to wear with both pieces; as well as to mix into my current wardrobe. Love that!
I took a few photos from my recent shopping trip to iBiss Boutique in San Jose’s Willow Glen neighborhood and thought I would share them with you. They have the most amazing collection of initial jewelry, the perfect flats for summer into fall and a huge selection of necklaces I will be dreaming about for months.
