Black Friday — Susie style

Numerous letters have hit the FN Dish mailbag requesting fashion tips from Susie Fogelson — VP, Marketing & Brand Strategy.

In the spirit of Black Friday, Susie shares five fashion and shopping ideas that may even save you money…

1) Hunt for one special piece. A signature hat, scarf, or belt can transform basics from your closet into something unforgettable.

2) Go local! Like food, why not support local artisans and jewelers? In Susie’s Brooklyn neighborhood, she frequents boutiques like Bird and Kiwi to find one-of-a-kind pieces.

3) Don’t fear the hat. Susie would wear one daily if she could — and now her daughter is into them as well. A fave designer is Eugenia Kim, who mixes tweed and cashmere. What’s not to love?

4) Monochrome is not monotonous. On the contrary…a single color can be sophisticated. All black is great but solid lights work too. She was a bucket of crazy but remember how elegant Sharon Stone looked in her head-to-toe cream ensemble from Basic Instinct?

5) Get social. Even if you don’t have cash to spend this season, nothing is better than gathering good friends and window shopping boutiques in a new neighborhood. You may even find that signature accessory.

    Great tips Susie! You truly are the fashion maven of The Next Food Network Star…I’m a big fan of tip 2 – Go Local! Supporting local boutiques has a tremendous positive impact on your local economy. As an added bonus boutiques tend to locate special pieces for regular clients which keeps your wardrobe fresh and unique to you.

    Does anyone know where Susie purchased the necklace she normally wears (with two round pendants)?

    She’s seen wearing it in her profile picture on this site. I’ve been trying to find something similar to this in which I could engrave my children’s initials.

    Thank you!

    I loved what Susie was wearing on the first episode of this new season. I think it was a navy blue dress (when they first met the contestants in the Food Network Kitchens).

    Does any one know where she bought it?
    Thank You!
