Mini Interview with a Mini Editor: City Sage

Want some sage advice on what you should be wearing this fall?  Pop on over to the city sage and check out what Anne Sage has picked out in her Mini Editor for a chance to win our $1,000 blogger and reader contest Make yourself at home-- from shoes to swatches, the city sage offers inspiration in all colors.

How would you describe your blog in one sentence?
From girly glam to modern cool, it's the happy, peppy place where fashion and interiors come to play

What was your inspiration behind the items you picked for your dream wardrobe for fall?
I chose these pieces with the same care that I shop in real life; I looked for items that could stand out as the best of the current season, but that would pair with everything already in my closet and also look great for years to come.

What are your favorite trends for fall?
Rich hues like mulberry, saffron and cobalt; juxtaposing classic menswear with feminine sparkles; and anything leopard!

If you win the $1,000 prize, what will you use it for?
I'll treat myself to a new outfit for the Rue Magazine launch party in New York City. A memorable cocktail dress, a killer pair of shoes, and a luxe evening clutch. But that's only if I curb my parking ticket habit between now and then :)

What are you looking for in reader-submitted sets? What should your readers keep in mind to win $1,000 if you are the winner?
I'm a storyteller at heart, so I'm drawn to boards that set a scene--outfits that scream 'Wear me to brunch with the girls!' or 'I'm your Friday night date look!' The winning set will be one that not only looks great from a fashion perspective, but that inspires me to welcome the Fall season by getting out of the house and having fun.

Here's one of her favorite looks so far: "It's what I'd wear if I were a high-powered magazine editrix waltzing into the office a la Meryl Streep in 'The Devil Wears Prada'."
