Trend Alert: Pumpkin Escapes the Pie
October 12, 2007
It's October, which means it's officially pumpkin season. Kids want Jack-o-Lanterns, adults want pumpkin pie, and we want all the pumpkin-themed fashion and beauty finds appearing on shelves now. What's that?, you say. Pumpkin's good for more than eating? You betcha, sister. The veggie's enzymes work wonders on dull skin–a big problem as the weather gets cooler and dryer–and the color looks simply fab when it comes to accessorizing your fall wardrobe. Kick off your orange make-over with a Frutopia Facial at Manhattan's Metamorphis Day Spa. The service includes a pumpkin peel that helps strip away dead skin cells while infusing the face with a heavy dose of antioxidants. If you can't hit the spa, Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Peel awaits just a click away. Remember: pumpkin may be powerful but it's also gentle enough for sensitive skin. Normally us delicate daisies steer clear of peels; this time we buy, buy, buy.
For your wardrobe, add a little color with a chic Banana Republi satin-trim blouse, a pair of Tory Burch Reese Ballet, or a luxurious Hermes cashmere scarf. (Note: never, ever wear all three items together, lest you tip the scales from pumpkin accent to pumpkin-esque.) Then hit the streets in style–all this talk of pumpkins has probably made you hungry, and it's time to find the closest bakery.
