This Fall I’m dreaming of more versatile and conservative pieces; I blame the most conservative city in the world, my new home of Washington DC. I think my style has been maturing, well, forever; it’s always maturing and evolving as I change as a person, yet this move has prompted a bigger change than usual. Then again, maybe it’s just my comparison and perspective. I’ve taken out a number of my piercings, starting shrinking my stretched ears, letting my hair grow and flipping it, as well as hiding my nose ring more often than not!
This fall, I’m craving prints and accessories. The 3.1 Philip Lim for Target collection hits the nail on the head with the growing in popularity envelope end bags and leopard prints (because you can never have enough leopard!). I’ve been eyeing cat eye sunnies for awhile, and the Tom Ford ones are perfect; every time I’m in a department store I just have to try them on again! Ever since February I’ve been lusting after the Burberry Heart Print tops, for guys and girls, and have even found a couple close knock-offs! Other accesories I’m craving include a graphic beanie, a layered statement necklace, and anew watch, because I’ve found that my diamond and white watch doesn’t quite go with everything, and these La Mer wrap watches are understated and fun!
Lastly, I’ve been having a love affair, for about 6 months…with a new Aussie…Brand that is! Finders Keepers Label gets me awestruck every time I see something new from their collection. Their mirror prints and body hugging silhouettes are sexy, edgy, and oh so feminine. This long sleeve dress is a perfect fall staple for a Date Night!
As for shoes, I’m in desperate need of some new combat-style boots, and I’m partial to the stigma of Dr Martens. I’ve also been aching for some ankle booties, similar to a chelsea boot for MONTHS now. Sadly, I’m picky and attempting to be budget savvy so these JC’s are just for oggling, for me at least!
What are you coveting this fall?
