Inspector Snew is Back!

Hi Everyone! Remember me? Well, in case you don’t remember, this is Inspector Snew–your guide to style, fashion and life. I deeply apologize for the long hiatus, but I am ready to get back up and running! Let’s just call this Inspector Snew 2.0

Here are a few new things to expect from Inspector Snew 2.0

  • Eat-I am no Bobby Flay, but I will share with you some good eats I like to cook. Thanks to Pinterest, I have a ton of recipes I am dying to try
  • Do- I am a pretty private person, but if I do or see something cool in NYC, I will definitely capture that moment and share it with everyone. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to suggest!
  • Chat-If I hear something in the news (anything from politics to celebrities) and I feel that it is worth the discussion, I will post my opinion. I’m not saying you have to agree with me, but you will receive bonus points if you do!
  • See-This section will review on any new TV shows, movies, plays, etc. that I see.
  • Wear-As always, I will always provide the latest trends in fashion.

To start things off for {Wear} I have a fabulous little post for you on the perfect trend for spring: Flowers. Now I know it is pretty cliche for flowers to be a trend for spring, but lately the trend has exploded. You can find it in every store, and many designers featured the trend on the runway last fall. Take a look at some of my favorite pieces.

Splurge vs. Steal

Boots are all the rage this fall. They are so helpful in keeping your feet warm from the snow, ice, and wind. Boots are super comfortable, and they are acceptable to wear in most work places. For today’s post, I have found three types of boots that are must haves for this fall. You can either splurge on a pair of boots, or you can get them for a steal! It all depends on your monthly or seasonal budget.

First, I found two great pairs of tall black wedges. I just love wearing wedge boots because they are not only comfortable, but they look great with jeans tucked in, or they look great with dresses and skirts with tights. They can be casual or dressy.

Splurge- Rick Owens for $1,895 at Saks

Steal- Lucky Brand for $219

I love lace up ankle boots. They are great for casual work days and running errands on the weekend. I love them with rolled up jeans and a simple tee with a sweater or with a girly dress and a jean jacket.

Splurge- Diesel for $320 at Ssense

Steal- Old Navy for $25

This fall and winter, you are going to need a great pair of rain boots. Not only are they essential for those rainy days, but they are perfect for walking in sloshy and slippery snow. When it gets super cold outside, buy some rain boot socks to keep your feel extra warm.

Splurge- Givenchy for $280 at Kima Zabete

Steal- Chooka for $89 at Dillards

Pretty in Pleats

Call me old-fashioned, but I just love pleats. They are so sophisticated and chic. They are also universally flattering for every body type. This is true! So have some fun, and you will always be pretty in pleats.

Flirty and Fun This Fall

Once a week or so I will start posting fabulous “Outfits for the Season.” I am not saying you should buy this exact outfit (although it would be an excellent idea), but I am saying that you should take these outfits as inspiration, and create your own fabulous looks. It is super easy! You may already have these pieces in your closet and you just need a little help putting them together. In today’s post, everything is under $200!

Go for the Gold

Gold jewelry is one of the hottest trends of this fall. Don’t believe me? Then check out all of the magazines, runway shows, and the other fashion blogs. Gold jewelry is just so much fun to wear and it brightens any outfit. Just a touch or two of gold is all you need to sport a classic and sophisticated look. Still not convienced? Then ask the Greek Gods and Goddesses that adore this precious metal.
