Footwear Friday, Franco Sarto Imply Boot: PAMELA PEKERMAN

The perfect fall boot has arrived and it’s from Franco Sarto, a company known for impeccable comfort. The Franco Sarto Imply boots ($199) have a hidden wedge, so you get a bit of a boost, but with plenty of ease on your back. The side buckles give the boot a utilitarian feel, and I love the full length side zipper for easy wear. For fall's heritage look, pair it with jeggings, a simple white long sleeve shirt (snag one from H&M for $12) and a houndstooth or plaid print cape.

Are you bootilicios all season long? What's your take on boots during the summer. Leave a comment below.

Travel Thursday, Travalo Perfume Atomizers: PAMELA PEKERMAN

For the savvy traveler who wants to avoid long lines and fly solely with a carryon, taking a bottle of perfume can be a predicament. Not every brand produces 3oz bottles. And, besides, do you want to spend money on another bottle of perfume? Some of us change our scent like we change our shoes! Why bother with another bottle?! Travalo Perfume Atomizers ($15.99) solve all these problems. The pocket-size, refillable atomizer bottles can be filled with your favorite (of the moment!) perfume in a matter of seconds. Simply remove the nozzle from your fragrance bottle, pump Travalo up and down on the tube, and you’re set. When scent is scarce, Travalo has an integrated fill level indicator window to show how much fragrance you have left. My only warning: don’t present this to your mother outside of Lincoln Center before walking in to see a ballet. Those around you may perceive this little bullet as … Ya, that was awkward.
PS I’ve been using my Travalo Perfume Atomizers for the daily travels and trials of being in humid NYC. A little mid-day sprits goes a long way. I’m sure my fellow urbanites understand and appreciate the gesture.

Treasure Tuesday, Kara Ross Triple Gemstone Sugarloaf Ring in Lapis: PAMELA PEKERMAN

The other week, I had a delicious lunch at Zengo with Kirsten Yadouga, a talented handbag designer who has worked with Juicy Couture and Reed Krakoff, to name a few. (She’s actually launching her own sleek and luxurious collection this year, which I’ll certainly share with all of you bagistas when I get the OK). While catching up over tuna tacos and duck rolls, my eyes were glued to Kristen’s craz-e town, lapis blue YSL ring. As you know, coral is my signature shade, but I couldn’t get that ring our of my mind! Ladies – and gents – I’ve been gone loco for lapis! So, when Kara Ross sent over some jewelry samples for a client I’m styling, and they include the Triple Gemstone Sugarloaf Ring ($265), it was fate. In addition to having the coveted lapis stone, the three-stones across hits on the wide-ring trend.

Mystery Monday, Etsy Gypsy Crochet Glass Crochet Necklace: PAMELA PEKERMAN

Keeping the knitting theme going, today’s Mystery Monday spotlight goes to Gypsy Crochet, a vendor on -- my latest resource for unique accessories! Gypsy Crochet uses natural stone and glass, and crochets around the rocks to create statement necklaces and rings. This teal bib necklace has my name written all over it. Plus, what I love about this vendor, and many of the artists on Etsy, is they package their merchandise with love. The wrapping pager, the feathered yarn, the vintage cigarette cases, the matching stuffing paper, it was so much fun unwrapping all the Etsy goodies last week, for today’s PIX11 segment.

Are you a fan of Etsy? What’s your favorite shop? Share your thoughts and who knows, maybe you'll win something from your favorite Etsy vendor!

Skype Freetalk Buddy Cam Giveaway, Win Two Web Cams: PAMELA PEKERMAN

I’m not the biggest techy, so I appreciate anything that is for, as my father would have said, “the dumb user”. That’s why I’m a huge fan of Skype, the easy-to-navigate communications system that let’s me see my nieces before they go to bed. For this system to work, naturally, a web camera is essential. Since all our accessories, including technology accessories, need to look as fabulous as they work, the wonderful team at Skype is giving one lucky reader a set of two Skype FREETALK® Buddy Cams. Enjoy one yourself and give the second Buddy to your mother or grandma – yes, grandma’s Skype too! The FREETALK® Buddy Cam is flexible and hugs any monitor/surface. This cute guy just needs to be plugged into a USB port and he’ll be ready for hours of talking – too bad you can’t take him for long walks in the park or an evening of wine tasting.
two Skype FREETALK® Buddy Cams,, $29 each
1) Follow me on twitter, and Skype 
2) tweet why you need to Skype and include @PamelaPekerman @Skype and #PamPekermanSkype. Example: “@PamelaPekerman I should win @Skype Buddy Cam bc my hubby travels so much & I need 2 c his cute face daily. #PamPekermanSkype #Giveaway”
3) A random tweet will be selected on August 2, 2011. (Contest ends August 1, 2011 at 11:59pm EST)
