Three Stylish Books to Bookmark for October

October is turning out to be my favorite month yet. From last weekend's amazing #PhillyMagShops pop-up shop (huge thank you to everyone who came out!) to the crisper days, a busy business, and prepping for my birthday celebration later this month, I am excited and overwhelmed in the best possible way. To make it even sweeter, there are a bunch of exciting new books being released by a few of  the fashion industry's most stylish women. Happy (almost) birthday to me!

How to be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style and Bad Habits

by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, Sophie Mas

I spent an entire day this past weekend flipping through this book. It's a funny, frank, photo filled guide with personal anecdotes and tips by four stylish Parisian women about what gives Parisian women that certain je ne sais quoi.  If you've ever wondered how to incorporate a little bit of French attitude and style into your everyday life, pick up this easy read. You won't be disappointed.

The Woman I Wanted to Be (Release Date: 10.28.14)

by Diane Von Furstenburg

DVF is one of my personal heroes. Independent, stylish, and unafraid to be herself – she is an inspiration to all women looking to create the life they want to live. In her newest book, she writes about building her brand, her family, and even her battle with cancer. I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

“I want every woman to know that she can be the woman she wants to be.”

Tory Burch: In Color (Release Date: 10.14.14)

by Tory Burch

It looks like the book gods have finally answered my prayers: Tory Burch is releasing a book! If there is one person who has an eye for color, it's Tory Burch. And her first book is dedicated to just that – her colorful inspirations – from her travels to entertaining to business advice to art and more. With a foreword by Anna Wintour, I see this doubling as inspirational read and the perfect coffee table book.

A Philly Pop-Up Shop!

In case you haven't heard, I'll be setting up a pop-up shop this weekend at Philly Mag's amazing designer warehouse event #PhillyMagShops! If you're in the Philadelphia area, I highly recommend grabbing your girlfriends and making your way to this one-day only event.

What's in store

Amazing selections of in-season designer goods from Philly's most stylish boutiques at insane markdowns, a braid bar, bubbly, and more! I'm excited to be included in the mix with Philly mainstays like Nicole Miller, Third Street Habit, Vagabond, and Per Lei (see the full list here). Maggpie Vintage rentals will be styling up the space so you can expect to take lots of Insta-worthy snaps.

I'll be selling some brand new merchandise (like these journals and these mugs!) along with best sellers like our Bon Weekend totes and illustrated prints. Make sure you stop by and say hello! I can't wait to meet you!

Noteworthy: Late September 2014

Happy Thursday, loves!

Just popping in with a quick round-up of a few of my favorite things from September. But seriously, where does the time go?

No. 1  | The E. Porselli ballets at Ann Mashburn are sheer perfection. No. 2 |  Loren Hope's latest collection and cookbook are gorgeous, per usual. I'd love to get my hands on this, this and these.  No. 3 |  I'm adding this spotted beauty to my birthday wish list.  No. 4 |  Between our upcoming pop-up shop at #PhillyMagShops (purchase your tickets here!), custom orders, and developing/designing new product, behind the scenes at The Atelier has been exciting ... but less than glamorous. I'm very excited to share, though, that some brand new products (new journal shown above) and designs that will make their debut in the boutique very shortly! Make sure to follow along on Instagram and sign up for our email list to be the first to know! No. 5 | I've been sticking with my minimal makeup routine, and Benefit's berry colored lip stain is the perfect easy-to-wear punch of color for fall. It's not glossy or sticky and I love that it can be layered on as a deeper rouge for night out.
