WHAT'S NEW ON W2WW

What did women wear to Mercedes Benz Fashion week?  So many wore Black, White and Black and White, a fantastic transitional palette.  It makes September feel fresh and new again.  While we chose the scheme for the Couture Council Luncheon and for What To Wear to Fashion Week, we shopped a little more for some other great choices.  It is clearly the choice of stylish women everywhere both on and off the runway.  

Take a good look in your closet at your footwear for fall?  Do you have all the styles you need for a girl on the go?  Here are the 5 that we like to rely on for getting everywhere in style.  And went shopping at SAKS SHOE DEPARTMENT  to find the best of each.

2. WEDGE   For comfort and style.
3. KITTEN
