If you're a luxury shopper, this is a must-read for you. Shift into maximum overdrive with fierce accoutrement and sleek accessories, from hats to handbags. Prepare to hit the open road this season with scarves that take you back to the '50s when scarves were used to tame your hair in the finest convertibles.

Top designers have truly outdone themselves this season with statement-making shoes and headlight-blinding sunglasses. From Miu-Miu to Chanel, these designs will break record speeds flying off the shelves. Shift into neutral with rich desert tones on supple leathers and skins. Pump your brakes for this stop because you won't want to miss anything.

This is the moment when Neiman Marcus, Barney's New York, Saks Fifth Avenue and Chanel should not be a blur in your rearview mirror. From Birkenstock to Burberry, designers are not waving a checkered flag. It's time to make this season about you and get your engine purring with leopard prints by Jones New York.

I realized a long time ago that when it comes to fashion, it's about quality not quantity. Shoes and handbags are not something you want to refurbish like an old car. So hit the open road to Barney's New York in Scottsdale, Saks Fifth Avenue at the Biltmore Fashion Park or Jones New York in the Chandler Fashion Center. See you there, vroom, vroom!
