Living for Fall

I went to NY during a terrible heat wave in LA with a suitcase full of sweater vests and trousers that never saw the light of day because even though I tried really hard to exploit every tiny breeze Manhattan mustered, ultimately, it was just too early for fall and mostly it was just a boggy late summer clime that made my hair frizz. Alas, I hear this week it's actually cooling off back east and autumn is in the air.
Fall is my favorite season. It's the coziest. The food is rich again, the wardrobe is the best (boots and scarves!) and as a kid I always loved going back to school. 
So I was thrilled when my mom told me yesterday that my brother told her (who's wife told him) that my bag was in October issue of Living.  I went right out and bought it. Yay! To have La Trop be featured in Editor's Choice page is such an honor...Thanks style editor Tanya Graff, I concur, it is the perfect work tote! And so happy I got the mag - look at that cover: it's got "cozy" written right on it and there are some yummy fall recipes I'd like to try. Now, if only Mother Nature could summon a little chill for LA...

I've been so looking forward to fall. However, just checked the weather (as I do most mornings) and it's going to be in the 80's this week. So over summer, and I too want to wear fall clothing. I guess not quite yet?
Carry my Le Trop everyday, and inevitably someone stops me to ask me about it and of course give it huge compliments!

Yes, i went right out and bought the mag, too, and found the page right away. Gorgeous! I tho't in your account about fixing those recipes and you said "now if mother----" and i tho't you were gonna say, "now , it mother were here to fix them for us."
i would, too.
Congrats on another page in another stylish mag. My wall is getting full----but keep'em comin'. xoxo

Congrats on the mention in Living!!! You need a PR person now :)
I miss LA Fall (lived there for 7 years) although it's nothing like the East Coast Indian Summer ....

Hi Claire,

Don't know if you know it already, but the Trop' is featuered in Germany's Brigitte magazine (current issue), if I am not mistaken!

Warm regards from Bonn, Germany
