Rachel Zoe Cape

rzcapeIt popped up on Paris Hilton a few weeks ago, and while we don't always look to her for style tips, this time around she looks trés chic sporting the new Rachel Zoe Ali Wrap Cape in tan. A few weeks later, this luscious frock was found on actress Katherine Heigl. The piece is making the rounds and was selling at major department stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, but many locations are noting that it has flown off the shelves and is sold out in a bunch of places. Still, even though I can't afford its $695 price tag (and wonder if I'd ever spend that kind of money on a piece of clothing), I can still drool and wish there was a cheaper version offered.

The cape is stunning and perfect for fall, with its creamy color and black leather trim, big lapels and gorgeous front tie. This cape will leave you feeling beautiful and warm as the cold weather approaches.

Wow, gorgeous! Rachel Zoe's antics may come off a little wacky on her (very addictive) TV show but there's no doubting her fashion styling and design expertise. Hopefully a more affordable knock-off for us non-celebrity shoppers will pop up somewhere soon!

This ain’t no Burning Man—the MAH’s GLOW festival flames on


Mercury Direct in Libra, Columbus Day, Libra New Moon

Mercury completes its retrograde Friday, poised stationary direct Friday evening at zero degrees Libra. Mercury begins its journey through Libra once again, completing its retrograde shadow Oct. 12. Things should be a bit less complicated by then. Daily life works better, plans move forward, large purchases can be made, and communication eases. Everything on hold during the retrograde is slowly released. Since we eliminated all thoughts and ideas no longer needed (the purpose of Mercury’s retrograde) during the retrograde, we can now gather new information—until the next retrograde occurs on Jan. 5, 2016 (1.3 degrees Aquarius), retrograding back to 15 degrees Capricorn on Jan. 25. It’s good to know beforehand when Mercury will retrograde next—Jan. 5, the day before Epiphany. On Monday is Columbus Day, when the sailor from Genoa arrived in the new lands (Americas), Oct. 12, 1492. This discovery by Columbus was the first encounter of Europeans with Native Americans. Other names for this day are “Discovery Day, Day of the Americas, Cultural Diversity Day, Indigenous People’s Day, and Dia de la Raza.” Italian communities especially celebrate this day. Oct. 12 is also Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Monday is also the (19 degrees) Libra new moon festival. Libra’s keynote while building the personality is, “Let choice be made.” Libra is the sign of making life choices. Often under great tension of opposing forces seeking harmony and balance. There is a battle between our lower (personality) and higher selves (soul). We are tested and called to cultivate right judgment and love. When we align with the will-to-good, right choice, then right judgment and love/wisdom come forth. Our tasks in Libra.
