Pam's Style, Office Style Under $100 - 10.15.12

Today’s look is inspired by the effortless pastels I’m seeing for Spring 2013. I picked up this flowy top at T.J.Maxx over the weekend and decided it was unnecessary to wait several months to put it on. An H&M tank is layered underneath, and a leather jacket along with a scarf, keeps me warm when I’m outside. The denim-esque leggings are actually from Duane Reade and were an emergency purchase, caused by a fashion malfunction, on the way to a segment taping. The entire look, including the L.A.M.B. booties, which are also a T.J.Maxx score, is under $100.

Booties - L.A.M.B. via T.J.Maxx ; Necklace - White House Black Market
Moral of the story? There is no economic reason that a woman should not look good when she steps out of the house. Whether you’re going to the office, grocery store or picking up your kids from school, you should always put your best you forward. Ladies, we all know that looking good makes us feel good. It also helps us fight thru insecurities, personal hardship and professional setbacks. So, next time you want to shlep outside in old sweatpants, think about how simple it would be to just put on some form-fitting jeans or leggings? Oh, and don’t forget a little rouge

How do you put your best you forward? I welcome your comment here or via twitter @PamelaPekerman

Khahis for Men, Dressy or Not? topic on Jim & Kim Morning Show Fresh 102.7

It's a good thing I can do radio from my home (even when i'm not feeling well). On Tuesday's Jim & Kim Morning Show on New York's Fresh 102.7, I was asked to comment on a highly controversial topic that borders on the level of urgency we now feel about the pending Presidential election. 

Topic: Are Khaki pants dressy enough to wear to a high-end establishment? Jim says "yes", Kim says "no". What did I say? Click here to find out. 

What's your take this hot-button topic? 

Pam's Style, Paris on My Mind - 09.27.12

No, I haven't been walking around naked the past few weeks. I have, however, been working much more from home and under the weather. Today, I'm feeling great and back in the city. Inspired by my recent trip to Paris and my current book of choice, Paris: A Love Story by Kati Marton (a must read!), my ensemble was inspired by a scarf, pleats and pantyhose. 
Top- Elizabeth Daniel NY, Skirt- Ted Baker
Shoes- Alexander Birman, Pantyhose - Philippe Matignon,
Cuff- Ted Rossi, Bag- Prada, Scarf- Sabina Les
Do you love hosiery as much as I do? What's your favorite brand, print, color, pattern?

Pam's Press: Fall Accessories on Mirror/Mirror Live Well Network

Back in July, I headed down to Houston to shoot with my new friend Rebecca Spera, the vivacious host of Mirror/Mirror which you can watch nationally on The Live Well Network. This sassy New Yorker is a blast to work with, a heck of a martini drinker! Shhh, we had some fun the night before our shoot. A gal can't just fly to Texas to work, right?

The below was shot at charming CHARLIE, an accessories mecca chock full of on-trend, affordable jewelry, bags, scarves, belts, you name it! We need this store in Manhattan. Are you listening in the corporate offices?
Fall 2012 Accessories, Mirror/Mirror 
Clothing for this shoot was provided by CoffeeTable, an iPad app that allows you to browse catalogs from Neiman Marcus to Tory Burch to Alloy, get exclusive deals and shop securely. It's fast, easy and convenient. 
A peplum top, colored jeans and smoking
slippers create a  semi-casual vibe perfect
for a walk on a breezy fall day.
A rouched Tadashi dress is the perfect
backdrop for showcasing tons of gold accessories. 
A pencil skirt and lace top with peter pan
necklace, accented with top handle bag and
fall's go-to point toe shoe, is a great way
to impress the boss.
Be the peacock. Love the peacock. It's the
ruling animal for fall and holiday.
Belt everything this season. Show off that
sultry waist. And, what is that more peacock

Pamela Pekerman debut on QVC with Dan Azan Handbags

Monday morning at 3am (which for many is more like Tuesday late night), i was thrilled to debut on QVC. If you happened to catch the 5 minute hit, you were treated to the first showing of Dan Azan's python embossed leather handbag. I've been wearing this bag since last December, when I was confirmed to be the brand's on-air spokesperson, and i can tell you that it has garned quite a bit of compliments. If you missed the live showing, check out to get your hands on this stunner. Ivory multi is my personal favorite because I love how it pops against the berry and coral colors I wear all year around.

Thank you to my lovely host, Jennifer Coffey for giving me a warm QVC welcome. Backstage, I also got to meet powerful ladies like Dena Douglas (On-Air Spokesperson at Tignanello) and Courtney Custer (on-air QVC talent and founder of Hoop Skirt Productions). A special hug to my mom, who accompanied me on this trip as I was (and still am) very sick and fatigued - hence my MIA status on this blog, twitter and everywhere else.

PamTube: Look Like a Chic Jetsetter with Style Expert Pamela Pekerman

I travel enough to see the good, the bad and the really?!? PJs are not allowed. Let every moment be a fashion opportunity to shine. A chic travel ensemble doesn't mean Herve Leger and Prada pumps. To master the jetset  style:

1. Keep it comfy, but classy in jeggings or leggings. Avoid ultra shinny spandex and go for a thicker cotton blend, ideally in black or a dark charcoal like the Milan Legging from Yummie Tummie. Pair with a slimming (but not fully body con - remember ABB Always Balance your Body) top. I love traveling in Elizabeth Daniel New York or a Theory top. 
2. Never forget your pashmina scarf. It ads color, doubles as a blanket and is loaded with panache! There's just something about a scarf that elevated any look. 
3. Keep a pair of rollable flats in your bag. Even if you're like me and will change into them as soon as you exit security, flats will help you breeze through the airport and are much easier during screening. Try Yosi Samra
4. After a long flight, freshening up is key. With a Travalo perfume atomized you'll never have to shop for 3oz bottles again. It's amazing. Buy it and you'll see!

Enjoy the video and let me know what you want to see in future episodes.
