Grab your matte alligator Gucci and jump in your Ford hybrid for a ride back in time across this country.

It’s time to put away the flip flops, drink that last frozen daiquiri, and say goodbye to your summer fling.  The dog days of summer are ending and the brilliant colors of fall foliage are emerging.  We have put our fingers on the muted color trends pouring out from Essie and OPI this season.  So grab your vintage bag and get ready to take a trip across America.  Don’t worry, doB’s tinted tips will point you in the right direction.

OPI’s “Touring America” collection is inspired by the rich culture and varied locations their Executive Vice President and Artistic Director, Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, experienced while taking a road trip across America.  Our country is a vibrant melting pot, but nothing showcases that truth better than this collection.  Are We There Yet is a refreshing shade of melon that is a first-class transition for those gals not quite ready to put away the sundress, while Road House Blues is a dark sapphire that will make you feel anything but sad.  These deep hues are perfect for the office but sinful enough for the date.

Not sure what to pack?  Essie’s latest collection with have you FALLing in love with the lacquers along with the post-war handbags that inspired them.  You may not be able to afford the Chanel 2.55, but doB is pretty sure that even Karl Lagerfeld would be envious of the manicures holding the bag.  With names that evoke the timeless bags like Power Clutch, a grey with hints of green, or the camel beige, Case Study, you can feel like the polished 50s housewife with the power career to boot.

So ladies, pack up your Glamour Purse and Get in the Expresso Lane for your fabulous fall journey on the fashion highways of America.

doB picks Glamour Purse by Essie $8 and A-taupe the Space Needle by OPI $8.50
