Good Morning readers, remember a few posts back when I mentioned that I will be hosting a shopping event and fashion show with Saks in New Orleans? Well, I can finally share all of the details with you! I will be styling 5-7 looks in the Fall Fashion Show in Contemporary on the second floor of Saks in Canal Place on Saturday, September 27th from 3-5 pm. The show starts at 3:30 pm, but I will be there all afternoon talking fall trends and offering my styling and shopping assistance! If you can’t make the show, the shopping event lasts all weekend from Friday 9/26 to Sunday 9/28 in which you’ll receive a gift with your $250 Women’s Contemporary clothing purchase! See details on the gift below! You can also get a gift card up to $700 with purchase. More details on the ad below! Please feel free to shoot me an email at Jenn.hauteofftherack@gmail.com if you have any questions! I can’t wait to see you all there!

About This Look: I’m so glad that plaid made another comeback year because I am all about comfy, cozy plaid shirts during the fall! I love to wear them with distressed denim, leather leggings, tucked into a skirt, tied around my waist, you name it! If there is one piece of clothing I know you’ll get a really good use out of this fall, it’s a comfy plaid shirt! You can find this same exact brand and print plaid shirt at the Saks in Canal Place!

Good Morning readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I enjoyed every second of my birthday trip to the beach over this past week, which is why I’ve been slacking on my daily blog posts since I returned from New York. However, I’m finally ready to share my New York Fashion Week experiences with you starting with my tour at the Graphic Image/Gigi New York Factory from Day 1.

The minute we landed in New York, a large van was there to greet us as if we were going on a big field trip. Really the van was there to accommodate Krystal (A Pinch of Lovely), Kaela (our photographer) and myself along with our thousand pounds of over-packed luggage to the Graphic Image/Gigi New York factory. Much to our surprise, the Gigi factory was just like how we imagined; 50,ooo square feet of top quality leather in almost every color you can think of!  We were in leather heaven and honored to have Tom Glazer, the owner give us a personal tour of the entire factory. We saw everything from the cutting and the sewing to the quality control and personalization. It was incredible to see everything from start to finish and were amazed to learn that Graphic image makes all of Tiffany & Co.’s leather goods minus their handbags! The Tiffany blue was probably my favorite color leather in the whole factory! Well, that was at least until we got to see a sneak peek of spring which consisted of the most beautiful pastel colors as well as some neon shades too! It was also at this point where Tom and I discussed a handbag collaboration between Haute Off The Rack and Gigi New York, in which I will design my own exclusive handbag so keep your eyes out for that!

We were also amazed to learn that Graphic Image makes leather goods for Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, J. Crew, you name it! One of our favorite areas of the factory was the leather aisle where we could see everything leather the company has to offer. Krystal and I couldn’t help but pick out of few we loved and beg Tom to make us some bags in those colors. He never said no so we still have our fingers crossed! Our other favorite department was the back stock room where they keep every bag and accessory in every color for immediate orders! We of course had to pick a bag to carry for the rest of fashion week. We both picked their newest style bag called the Parker. I got navy and Krsytal got black. Needless to say we’re in love with our new bags and are so grateful for our wonderful experience at the factory. I hope to be back soon to design my own handbag! I get so excited just thinking about it!

In case you’re wondering where those monogramed flats in the photo above are from, Gigi New York teamed up with Go Priv and Yosi Samra during fashion week for fun a event. Together they hosted a NYFW Ready suite at the Empire Hotel for bloggers to enjoy free manicures and hairstyles as well as a monogramed Gigi New York clutch and a monogramed pair of the most comfortable Yosi Samra flats that I have ever put of my feet. I truly believe that flats helped keep me sane during our trip because I think I might have died in my heels all day!

Good Afternoon readers, I’m sorry for the late blog post today, but I’m still recovering from New York Fashion Week. I swear we never stopped for a break in that city nor did we get any sleep! It was crazy but so much fun! I can’t wait to show you photos from the trip. I’m sure you saw a bunch of pictures already if you follow me on Instagram, but just wait until you see the rest.

As for this outfit, I’ve already styled this Iconic white shirt from White House Black Market two other ways. In case you missed the posts, you can view them here–> 5 Key Pieces For An Easy Transition To Fall & The Iconic White Shirt. Like I mentioned in those previous posts, denim and a white top is all you need to get through this transitional phase from summer to fall. However, I realize that sometimes you can get stuck on how to change up your denim and white tee look or how to take it from day to night. That’s why I decided to style this outfit three different ways for you.  Just remember to incorporate your fall shoes, handbags and accessories into your look like this Blue Croc Danielle Nicole backpack.  It’s also always good to throw something fresh in there like these white studded pumps by French Connections which are available in gorgeous new colors for fall. I’ve got my eyes on the navy and grey ones! Once the weather gets a little cooler you can start including different jackets and sweaters into your transitional looks. Until then, it’s also really cute to tie a plaid button down shirt around waist with jeans a simple tee. You can also draping a denim jacket or neutral-colored moto jacket over your shoulders for more of a statement

The Exciting News Behind The Navy Clutch: In case you’re wondering why there are a few pictures of a beautiful navy clutch with Laura Mercier makeup that’s because I am working on an exciting collaboration with the Saks in New Orleans. I can’t spill too many details just yet. All can say is… plan to stop by the Saks at Canal Place in New Orleans on September 27 for a fun shopping event with Haute Off The Rack. You can even recieve one of these textured clutches with a few Laura Mercier makeup samples inside with purchase.  More exciting details to come!

Good afternoon readers, I hope you all had a great week. I’m having an amazing time at New York Fashion Week and I’m so excited to share one of my NYFW experiences with you today! In case you didn’t already know, I have never ever colored my hair before…ever!! So when Lucky Magazine and Aloxxi reached out to me about coloring my hair to kick off New York Fashion Week, I immediately jumped at the opportunity.

People have always told me to never put color in my hair because it was “already so beautiful,” so I didn’t, but boy was I missing out! It’s so fun—I feel like a whole new person! As you can see I didn’t go too crazy with color, but to me any added color is a drastic change! Marilyn, the Aloxxi artistic advisor did a fantastic job at creating the look I was going for, which was a very natural-looking “sombre” with a soft balayage. Since I was a “hair color virgin” prior to my appointment yesterday, Marilyn gave me a detailed description of everything that she was doing to my hair so I would feel comfortable with the process. She even explained how to use all of my new Aloxxi hair products, which smell divine in case you were wondering.

I love how Aloxxi is all about hair color personalities. My color personality is called “Seduction on the Grand Canal.” Each color has a fun unique name so that you can easily tell your Aloxxi hair color stylist the look that you’re trying to achieve. I don’t know much since I’m a hair color newbie, but I do know that I could not have asked for a better first hair color experience with Aloxxi.

Disclosure: Thank you to Aloxxi and Lucky Magazine for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
