Well… yes. We have been a bit behind in our blogging! Sorry about that! But we have been busy. Here is peak at what we did at New York Fashion Week earlier this month. We saw many shows and met the fabulous Mimi Plange too! And Jason Wu for the second time!

High Point Market is next for us! Behind the scenes coverage coming soon. Did we mention that we get to interview Christian Siriano and Lela Rose?! YUP!

DAILY DUO: MIRROR, MIRROR

Are you as sick of hearing about Chik-Fil-A-holes as I am? Well, here at Fashion + Decor, we prefer to give our hard-earned dollars to gay and lesbian friendly J.C. Penney. They make it easy when they have such cute pieces as this little mirrored nightstand for under $300. Prices that now leave room to contemplate more extravagant purchases like mirrored Gucci sunglasses. Win-win!

DAILY DUO: GREEN WITH ENVY!

A green and black python Gucci handbag? Um, where do I sign up? I might take my chances against the actual snake for a bag this gorge!

Everyone knows that the best way to recuperate after a snake fight is with a glass of wine. I’ll have mine beneath the aptly named Goddess Chandelier by Currey and Company. Cheers!

DAILY DUO: GET IN THE MOOD FOR FALL WITH BLACK LEATHER!

I’m loving this mod little moto jacket from H&M ($49.95-why not?), in black felt with faux leather sleeve. Add jeans and a t-shirt, and you’re ready to rock a crisp weekend afternoon. Cheap & chic is always on point!

Why not leather up your living room while you’re at it, with a felt-backed basketweave leather pillow from Albuquerque’s Pfeifer Studio? This is the kind of high-impact piece that takes basic black to the next level, AND you can support a small company into the bargain. Small Business Saturday is November 24th!

DAILY DUO: SENSATIONAL SILVER

This versatile Banana Republic silver sequined skirt is one of those pieces you can dress down or up and wear anywhere. I can see it with a mototcycle boot and t-shirt, crisp white blouse, or casual crewneck sweater for day, or a slinky tank and sky-high pump for evening.

The hammered silver lamp (just $99 at Lamps Plus) is another workhorse that does duty in multiple contexts. It goes in any room of the home and with all sorts of styles. I see it in a bohemian living room, in a masculine office, a glamorous boudoir…on and on.

DAILY DUO TWOFER: J CREW + LILLY PULITZER 4EVA!

The Schoolboy Blazer in beautiful Golden Sun and Poppy is a must for fall. It’s time to take velvet to the next level with a healthy dose of color!

If anyone knows from color, it’s Lilly Pulitzer. Her Chinoiserie barstool and chair will take any room out there from drab to fab!

DAILY DUO: SAVANNA STYLE

True story: I was recently at the zoo with my mom and daughters, and when we came across the giraffes, my mom was like, “They would make such a gorgeous rug,” to which I immediately rejoined, “Or a boot!” Don’t worry, PETA People, we are 100% committed, die-hard animal lovers. But why not show your admiration for these gentle giants with a little cruelty-free bangle action, courtesy of J Crew, or a giraffe patterned rug available at online decor juggernaut Wayfair?

DAILY DUO: SALT & PEPPER

I love, love, love tweed - especially in crisp black and white! J Crew delivers the tweedy terrific-ness with this ladylike jacket and pencil skirt combo. This look is at the top of my must-have list of fall work looks! CB2 is also on theme with this sleek sofa in a salt and pepper fabric that reads gray from a distance, but is black & white & fabulous up close. It’s time to start planning for fall, peeps!

DAILY DUO: CREAMSICLE CHIC

How cute is this dress from Anthropologie? It’s fresh for hot August days, and a cardigan and ballet flat will take it right into early fall. And if you’re looking to juice up a dull corner of your home, look no further then this Overstock.com chair, which is a steal at $260!

DAILY DUO: EMERALD GREEN

Everything Rachel Dooley designs for her brand Gemma Redux is just goregous! This necklace is a perfect example of her feminine/industrial dialectic. What a statement! Why not bring the same bold, emerald green aesthetic into the home with this elegant chandelier from Wayfair.com?

OLYMPIC OPENING CEREMONIES ROUNDUP: BEST OF THE REST

United States:This looks seems to be quite a love it/hate proposition. I personally love it! I think there’s true genius in the way Ralph Lauren has represented the American ethos, from the country club, patrician-casual skirt, pant and wonderfully brass-buttoned navy blazer, to the admittedly enormous player logo, to the faintly militaristic beret, in which I see echoes of such diverse institutions as the Black Panthers, Curtis Sliwa’s Guardian Angels, and the US Army. I feel like some of the animus toward this ensemble is a case of not liking what we see in the mirror. And I really don’t get the hate for the white brogues…I adore them! To each her own, I suppose!

The second photo shows the US team in all its beautiful diversity. Our strength lies in our differences :)

Brazil: They did the best job of punching up the ubiquitous look I like to call “Sporty Stewardess”.

South Korea: They were tops at the look I call “Nautical Barbershop Quartet”.

Sweden: I don’t know…the jaunty shirt works for me for some reason. And the women’s khaki skirt is girlish and cute.

Great Britain: I call this one “The Reverse Monet”; it looked totally lame on TV but I dig the closeup photo. It’s very modern and sporty, and the gold trim is really quite hot! Cheers, mates!

Germany: This is a complete WTF? look! Pink for the women and blue for the men? It’s just so…literal. Achtung, Deutsche-your flag is red, black and gold. The gender-specific baby colors don’t match, so please leave them to the kinder.

2012 OLYMPICS: OPENING CEREMONY FASHION BRONZE MEDAL

And the winner is…Cameroon! Bold colors and patterns, wide sleeves, hats…gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

So many of the nations’ teams looked like they were on their way to: A) barbershop quartet practice, B) third shift working the desk at Enterprise Rent-a-Car (*cough*Switzerland*cough), or C) Gate 25 at Newark Airport for the LA red-eye…and I mean working, not as a passenger! There was a shocking number of flight attendant looks, with a couple of pilots (Belgium, I’m looking at you) sprinkled in for good measure.

Cameroon, thankfully, couldn’t be bothered with western styles. Would you if your nation’s traditional attire was so beautiful?

Props to all who kept it real, including India, Senegal and Nigeria. You guys ROCK!
