    “When I was 10 years old, I asked my dad what he wanted me to be when I grew up. He said, “You can be whatever you want to be, baby.” That was the best advice I’ve ever gotten,” Clare Vivier told us. Fast-forward a few years (give or take!) and everyone (and their best friend) are running around town with Clare Vivier handbags: Kelly Oxford, Sophia Bush, Gaby Basora, Jenni Kayne… you get the point. So suffice to say she definitely chose the right path.

    Vivier invited us over to her picturesque California abode, which totally has that whole storybook white picket fence thing. Her charming space has this cosy, homey feeling that instantly makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside… but, seriously. It was kind of like checking into one of those quaint Bed and Breakfast cottages in some remote part of town that you never wanted to leave. Like a perfect host, Vivier layed out a delicious (not to mention, beautiful) spread of fancy cheese, charcuterie, nuts and a fresh baguette to boot; talk about #spreadlife. Despite the early call time, Vivier got the, er, party started a little early and poured us each a glass of Moët to sip while we styled. Take notes, future Coveteurs of the world. This is how you do it. (We kid, we kid.)

The styles out of this Fashion Week were so varied but singularly amazing, it's like New York City raised up a bunch of siblings with drastically different tastes that still get together once in a while for family dinner — or, something.

24 Badass Things Your Work Wardrobe Needs

We can't claim we've ever plucked a Comme Des Garçons look straight from the runway and worn it for our annual review, or showed up to an interview in a carnival-esque Thom Browne dress. That's because, as amazing as they may be, many high-fashion trends won't earn HR's stamp of approval. To find workwear that's read
