Macy's Fall Fashion Essentials for 2013 - Providence Rhode Island

This post is sponsored by the Everywhere Society

Fall is creeping us on us slowly here in New England. The weather is getting cooler and the leaves are changing into some beautiful shades of crimson, orange, yellow, and soft brown. It was a perfect day for a drive to neighboring Rhode Island to view the fall foliage, AND some fall fashions at Macy's Providence Place Mall in Providence Rhode Island. Look for info under #MacysFF13

This is my third time visiting the Providence Place Macy's and each time I visit I'm always impressed with the store's management team and sales associates. For this trip my sister accompanied me, and as soon as we arrived at the Macy's store, I spotted one of Macy's incredible store managers, Craig Robbins. Each time I've attended one of the Macy's events in Providence, Craig has welcomed me to his store and made sure I had logistics on the event and any and all background information I would need.

Today was no different. Not only did he make sure we were situated front and center for the fashion event, but he also took the time to explain a little bit about how the Macy's in Providence connects with the local community. This fall they are partnering with some local organizations to support the Gloria Gemma Flames of Hope Run Walk event on October 13th. The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation is out of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and Craig was so happy that Macy's shares his commitment to supporting this worthwhile cause and the local community. "After all, the community supports us," said Craig.

While I was getting situated, my sister did a little shopping, and came back and reported how helpful sales associate Deb in housewares was. Since my sister has about 20 years experience in retail department store management, she knows an outstanding sales team when she sees one, and also noted that it's a direct reflection of the store's management when the sales staff is so attentive and helpful! Again, kudo's to Craig Robbins! 

I also got to meet some of the "extra's" that Macy's recruits for their events. Alisha from Manicures-n-Motion, a mobile manicure lab out of D.C., as well as the greatest DJ who saved this blogger by letting her charge her phone at his deck. See! Everybody at Macy's is helpful!  (THANK YOU!) 
Macy's Attention to Detail! Manicures -- and Music!
In fact, there was something for everyone at Macy's today! Some candy - and downstairs in the children's section, there was a balloon contortionist!
Fun for everyone at Macy's

All of the clothes were amazing and I can't wait to put my own spin on Fall 2013's fashion trends! 

If I had one critique to make of this event, it would be the absence of an MC to announce the model's looks down the runway and explain the origins and backstories of this season's fashions. Each model, however, was knowledgeable about what designers they were wearing, and the makers of all their accessories, from shoes, to purses, to jewelry.  

Another great fashion event at Macy's

What's your favorite look or trend for this season?

I'd love to hear about it in the comments below.

  1. I love the tribal or aztec prints in the sweater shawl, and all the shoes are amazing!

    1. I agree!!!! I want each and every pair of shoes and boots that were worn.

  2. I want it all!! I really need to go to one of these events, they always look like so much fun!!

    1. Macy's typically does a great job with these events! And, of course, Macy's is my "go to" store!

  3. I can never wear those shoes-- but they are amazing! BUT- where is the plus sized model? Disappointed that there were not included in the show. Macy's usually is inclusive.

    1. I thought the same thing, Wendy. This show was a little different than the usual Macy's runway show.

  4. Love the Houndstooth dress, but I have to say I am not a fan of the booties ;(. Maybe they will grow on me. Michelle Brennan

    1. I'm not sure if I could carry off the short boots with a dress, but I do like the look. That houndstooth dress was gorgeous! I loved it too!

  5. I LOVE all the boots!! What is it about fall that makes you want to throw on some comfy jeans and cute boots and shop shop shop!!? :)

    1. I agree! Fall is one of my favorite times! the only thing I don't like about it is that it means summer is over.
