Fall Fashion Report 2013

September 3rd, 2013

When I told my sister we had to go to New York City to do research she said, “I can’t say no to NYC but what are we researching?” and I replied “fall fashion of course!” I live just north of San Francisco and the fashion scene is good here, but for me it doesn’t get any better than walking the streets of New York City and popping into the shops and department stores downtown in SoHo and on the Upper East Side when the fall pieces are out on display in the stores and windows.

We spent a few hours visiting Bloomingdales and Barneys and Bergdorf Goodman and Columbus Circle ogling all the designer duds one day, and then walked the streets of SoHo on another. Last year I posted a similar roundup of the fall fashion trends of 2012, here’s another peek at what’s hot in women’s fashion for 2013.
