like numerous fashion lovers, fall is my favorite season for shopping. I crave a closet revitalize many often when the temp starts to drop. I love wearing sweaters, booties, jeans and leather jackets much more than I love wearing denim cutoffs and tanks. It’s much simpler to feel chic and put together when you’re dressing for breezy fall weather than when you’re dressing for the sauna that is nyc in the summertime. July and August in nyc are brutal, and I’m typically much more concerned with not sweating my behind off than how I look, which is why when fall comes along, I look forward to fashion the most.
Recently on a very gloomy Saturday, my roommate and I chose to clean out our shared walk-in closet. full disclosure here: I am a major hoarder when it concerns clothes, shoes and accessories. I really have trouble parting with things! Yes, even my 10 year-old Abercrombie & Fitch tops and tanks with sequin detailing that I haven’t worn because high school. even though I wince thinking of my old sense of style, for some reason I held on to numerous of those items for years. It took some convincing, but my roommate helped me part with a lot! together we donated 6 large bags of clothing and shoes, implying I’ve got some closet space I need to fill. some of the items I’m lusting after are replacements of staples I got rid of, and some are new things I’ve chose I simply should have, but here are ten items I’ve got on my mind to snag this fall.
Stuart Weitzman Lexy Booties
Ok, if I’m being truthful here these aren’t exactly on my wishlist anymore as I actually purchased them and they are on my way to being in my possession very, very soon, but I still had to include these here because I love a good combat boot for fall. I plan on wearing these a ton with jeans and long dresses + a leather jacket for an effortlessly cool look.
Saint Laurent Sac Du Jour Nano in embossed Croc
Ok men you know I really am dying for a red bag for fall, and I even made you all vote on which Saint Laurent Bag was a better choice. I’ve because decided—I’m 99.9% sure—that I should have this embossed croc charm so stay tuned to see if I actually pull the trigger.
Aqua striped Turtleneck Sweater
Because I have no shame I’ll tell you that one day last winter season in the midst of having the flu—fever and all— I stupidly went out for errands and had a major hot flash to the point where I was dripping sweat and had to walk with my coat off in 30 degree weather. Needless to say my favorite stripped sweater smelt less than pleasant. I draped it over my hamper to remind myself to drop it at the dry-cleaners, but when I grabbed it to take it got caught on the metal deal with and ripped. In the trash it went and thus a stripped turtleneck went on my need list.
Maje synthetic Shearling Jacket
I really want a teddy coat, but I have much more coats than anybody I know so I simply cannot justify purchasing another, but this is like part jacket, part sweater, so that’s ok right?
Prada logo Belt Bag
I don’t need a belt bag per se, but you best believe I want one.
Gorjana Chloe Stackable ring Set
If you pay close attention the the hands that are in numerous of our photos here on PurseBlog than you’ll probably see my fingers dripping in my signature gold rings. I wear no less than two on each hand everyday, and I’m starting to get the itch to add much more to my rotation. I recently made my roommate, who works in the jewelry business, bring home a ring sizer so I could purchase rings for each finger. I love this stackable set.
Air force 1 Jester XX Sneaker
I just can’t get enough of the sneaker trend and I certainly overwear the two pair of AF1s I already own so it’s about time that I add another pair into my current rotation.
Acne Studios Canada Scarf
Every Fall/Winter I waltz into the Acne Studios store and tell myself I’m going to purchase the scarf I’ve wanted for the last 3 years, but maybe this will be the time it actually happens? I’ll let ya know.
Alice and Olivia Rosette Dress
I chose that I should have a leopard dress to wear with my Stuart Weitzman combat boots and my favorite black leather jacket.
DL1961 Beekman military Jacket
My roommate—and best friend—has a camo jacket that I always seem to be borrowing, so I guess it’s really about time I purchased my own.
