Marcel Ostertag showed his fall/winter 2016 collection at New York Fashion Week on February 11, 2016 at the Skylight Clarkson. The fall 2016 collection, took it’s inspiration from a common weather trait of the autumn season; rain.
The “rain” theme was apparent throughout the show. Marcel Ostertag used the rain theme on his sweaters which featured large raindrops. There were also rain slicker plastic inserts blocked into many of the skirts on the runway. This gave “rain” an entire new imagine; one that is cool, rather than wet. Love that!
Marcel Ostertag used texture and fabric blocking throughout his collection, using fabrics on skirts and dresses which unexpected, and fresh. The mix of texture on many of the skirts added a sophisticated yet playful vibe which was a fresh take on standards skirts; and rain gear.
The color palate, which was mainly light blue, grey, navy, and burgundy, evoked a fall feeling of grey skies, light blue rain water, evening sky navy, and burgundy leaves. The colors were cohesive with the theme, and helped complete the collection. Even the sequins were arranged like rain drops, which danced as the models moved down the runway.
I am in love with the trench coats, everything blue, and the fabulous long burgundy gown pictured above. Which pieces are your favorite from the collection?
The Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel is a smaller version of Tory Burch’s wildly popular Robinson satchel. This cute little handbag offers the same functionality as the larger version, at a smaller yet practical size. Love!
When one thinks of a mini satchel, one thinks of an extremely tiny handbag which can carry a set of keys, small wallet, and smart phone. Not the case with the Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel! This cute little handbag has the interior capacity of a regular, medium sized handbag.
As you can see in the photos above, the Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel can easily fit a wallet, keys, lipstick, sunglasses, phone, and a novel with room to spare. I have also carried three iPad mini’s for my children inside of my Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel along with my wallet, keys, sunglasses, lipstick and phone. Now THAT’s interior capacity at it’s best!
The Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel is made from sturdy saffiano leather. This type of leather is a life-saver during the fall and winter months. Since we are experiencing an El Nino year here in Northern California, we have been getting a ton of rain. The saffiano leather is fabulous in the rain! It repels the water, keeps everything inside dry, and does not get ruined. In fact, you cannot tell my satchel has been in a downpour. This is perfection!
The Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel is also lightweight; so you can stuff it full of things you need without it already weighing a ton. This beautiful handbag can be worn three ways; as a shoulder bag with the two top handles down, carried by hand, or draped over the forearm for a chic look which displays your handbag. As a handbag addict, I prefer to wear mine on my forearm; but since I have three kids, I find myself throwing it over my shoulder often. I love the versatility!
The interior of the Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel offers ample organization. Unlike most mini bags which usually have one pocket or less, the mini Robinson offers a three tiered pocket on one side, and a zipper pocket on the other side. This allows a place for your phone, receipts, keys, or anything small you want to keep separate from the main compartment of the handbag.
There is also a detachable shoulder strap on the Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel. This detachable shoulder strap can be left on to give you the versatility you need on the go, or removed for a dressier, classic satchel look.
If you are looking for an IT bag, the Tory Burch Robinson satchel in both the regular, and mini sizes, is an IT bag on the handbag world. This beautiful handbag is carried by Tory Burch every season in both classic colors, as well as seasonal hues.
I absolutely love my Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel, and am currently eyeing the larger version. My Robinson satchel is Iceberg, a seasonal color for winter, and is currently on sale here. You can find the Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel in a variety of colors online here, here, here, and here.
I hope you love your Tory Burch Robinson mini satchel as much as I do!

Now that winter is well on its’ way, it is time to think about serious outerwear for the cold weather season. One of the coziest, and trendiest, types of outerwear for the winter 2015 season is the puffer.
Puffers come in many different forms. Puffers come in three distinct styles; coats, jackets and vests. There are also different types of puffers including down, part down, synthetic down, natural stuffing and synthetic stuffing. In addition to styles and stuffing, puffer coats, jackets and vests come in different levels of warmth and many different colors! Whew! That is a lot to think about when shopping for a warm puffer this winter season!
Some of my favorite trends in puffer coats, jackets, and vests this winter season include asymmetrical zippers, winged collars, and mixed quilting. These three trends for winter 2015 in puffer coats help to make this traditional, puffy outerwear both fashionable and attractive. Love that!
I found a few amazing puffer coats, jackets and vests around the web and put them together in order to create the shopping widget below. Many of these styles are selling out fast; so now is the perfect time to buy a puffer coat, jacket or vest. I am trying to decide which one to buy myself! which style of puffer is your favorite for winter 2015?
