5 Fashion Essentials, An Editor’s Ultimate Closet Edit: Pam’s Picks BELLA Magazine

Have you  been to the newsstands lately? BELLA New York is blowing up and popping up on every New York corner, not to mention major hotels, top celebrity parties and TV segments. We’re playing with the big girls, and we’re looking really bella beautiful!

I’m so proud to be a part of the BELLA team. To be surrounded by passion is infectious.

In the current September/October 2015 Fall Fashion Issue, I have my usual Fall Accessories Guide, a great spotlight on exciting buzz in the jewelry world, and my beloved Pam’s Picks. This is my favorite page  because I get to promote my Always Be Your Best You message, and help busy women, like you, find cool products and style choices that, I hope, make your days better, brighter and, well, more bella beautiful.

In this issue, I’m sharing my 5 Fashion Essentials – An Editor’s Ultimate Closet Edit. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you know that I’m always raving about these brands. I wish I could tell you I’m a spokesperson for them (mama does love shoes and the shoes mama loves are quite expen$ive), but I’m just a humble fan.

PAM’S PICKS An Editor’s Ultimate Closet Edit

In the morning rush of getting kids clean/fed/dressed and yourself put-together, you need a wardrobe that works like a stylish puzzle. These five garments have been life tested and crazy, working-mom approved by yours truly. I promise they will help you look flawless and spend less time fishing for fashion finds in your closet. In fact, you may never need to shop again … well, maybe just to get more of these items in the fresh colors of the season.

Tees by Tina Lattice Dress and Textured Pencil Skirt $85 and $50 – One-size fits most sounds ridiculous, but this brand lives up to the promise. I wore the same items pre and post pregnancy, and have shared them with women ranging in size 0 to 12!

Lysse Moto Vegan Leather & Suede Leggings $128 – Hands-down the best leggings you’ll ever own – form-fitting, yet breathable. Pair with a blouse and your go-to blazer for a sharp, comfortable office look.

Elizabeth Daniel NY The Tuxedo Shirt $138 – Finally, an oxford-like shirt that doesn’t bunch up, when tucked into your pants or skirt. I love to layer it under a short-sleeve dress, when the season calls for extra warmth. Oh, and it’s machine washable! (UPDATE THE SHIRTS ARE $49. Sadly, the women behind the brand have decided to close up shop. RIP)

Ramy Brook Robi Sleeveless Top $295 – This silky top is perfectly draped, with just enough coverage to make it office-appropriate, yet still a sexy winner for post-work drinks. This is another one of those get-them-in-every-color staples you’ll keep turning to day-after-day.

Below are some more photos from the amazing New York Fashion Week party BELLA Magazine threw to celebrate our Fall Fashion Issue. Nicky Hilton, our cover model, hosted the fete.
