Elaine Turner Fall Preview

Yesterday I attended a fashion preview at the Elaine Turner boutique on Madison Avenue.  Fashion bloggers were invited to preview the Fall 2014, Holiday 2014 and Resort 2015 collections in advance of them being available in the stores.  Like Elaine Turner's previous "Texas Glam" accessories collections the upcoming ones are glamorous, girlie and gorgeous!  I especially love clutch bags and booties and there were plenty of those in a variety of colors and styles.  An added bonus: I think the price points are very affordable for luxury goods.  Below are some of my favorites...

The Fall 2014 collection features Elaine Turner's signature envelope and minaudiere clutches in lux python, a Birkin style satchel bag in rich taupe, black & white animal print bags and shoes, and stylish pendant necklaces.

Pretty pendant necklaces, very on trend for Fall

The Holiday 2014 collection has classic metallics and beautiful deep purple suede shoes and a fabulous purple houndstooth minaudiere that I predict will sell out the minute it hits the floor.

The resort collection includes the most fabulous booties in black, tan and a combination.

Super chic peep toe booties in tan and black.  
I can't decide which one I love more!

I love that the entire accessories collection is sophisticated, but with playful elements like the houndstooth pattern, animal prints and goldtone bamboo hardware.  I think all of the styles are going to be very popular this Fall.  The Fall 2014 collection should be in stores before this month ends and the Holiday 2014 and Resort 2015 collections should be available in October and November respectively.  

Finally, Elaine Turner was so generous to us bloggers.  We each got to pick a pair of shoes from the current summer collection as a gift.  I chose a neutral yet sophisticated sandal in cork that I plan to live in for the rest of the summer.  Elaine Turner, cork and I were all featured in an Associated Press article last month, so I am very excited to now have some cork accessories of my own.  You can read about the cork trend, and our quotes on the subject, here and check out my new sandals below...
