American Express Skybox Tweetup with Saks Accessories Director

Last week while at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, I was lucky enough to join American Express in their exclusive skybox. It's seriously cool "up in there" and you can pay to watch runway shows from the box. It was my first time to visit, and while we weren't there to watch a show, we were there to tweet our little hearts out with Saks Fifth Avenue Accessories Director, Elizabeth Kanfer (pictured, left above). I mean, how cool is that?!

This was one of the most beneficial events I attended throughout the week as obvi I'm an accessories freak. If you follow along on Twitter (@iheartheels), I hope you found it informative as well. Elizabeth doled out some major accessory advice. In case, you missed it, here are a few pieces of advice she gave us for fall:

Black & gold is the hottest accessories color palette this fall, but if you want color, orange is amaze.

An exaggerated boot or bootie is hot this fall, but for heels pointy is IT. "There's something very simple & chic about a pointy-toe pump."

Cant stand the stiletto? The lower mid-heel or chunky heel will be welcome this season.

Girls get your collared necklaces ready. Bangles were hot, but now "we're moving on to the neck."

"Suede is becoming seasonless."

Single-sole pumps are the hottest for fall. Also over-sized, less-structured handbags.

The food=AMAZING. It was catered by famous chef Todd English.

The glamorous backdrop

I went back for seconds on these chicken caesar roll-ups...shhh...
