If there’s any indication that Fall is making an early debut, let me recap the evidence:
NYFW kicks off in a few days. I CANNOT wait!
Cleveland has been averaging a steady high of 68 degrees.
Leaves have started to drop.
I’m literally sitting on my hands to keep from spending all of my money on fall clothes — in my humble opinion, the BEST clothes of all.
In order to keep some of your hard earned cash in your wallets, I’ve compiled a great collection of Fall Fashion Finds UNDER $100! Here’s your chance to get your shopping fix without the inevitable guilt, as the UPS delivery guy keeps dropping boxes at your front door… not that I know anything about that.
Building a functional (and FUN) wardrobe is all about mixing and matching — colors, prints, style and price points.
If your entire wardrobe is designer — what fun is that?
The items that make any wardrobe or outfit most special are those unexpected pieces that bring it all together. These are the pieces that will attract attention and compliments. Fortunately for you, these things don’t have to be expensive. Actually, the most stylish women in the world are the ones who can take a $10 top and make it look like a million bucks.
There is something totally zen about perusing the aisles of a drugstore. I could literally spend hours walking up and down those aisles inspecting the latest and greatest in beauty products.
Back in the day, it was my local, NYC 9th Avenue Duane Reade. These days, I’m more of a WALGREENS girl. Oh, and don’t even get me started on the TARGET beauty department! All these assorted drugstore beauty destinations have worked diligently to clear my head (and my occasional hormonal breakouts) and stock my bathroom with an arsenal of effective beauty products that could rival any high-end luxury brand.
It should be of no surprise that the sleeper shoe of the past two seasons come to us directly from the chicest of granny fashion: Chanel.
Women young and old flock to the French designer for a taste of the classic, refined and impeccably crafted. I’m pretty sure THESE SHOES check all of those boxes — for a fraction of the designer Chanel price.
(Thank you, Cyndi Lauper & Sirius/XM 80’s Channel for getting that song stuck in my head.)
When we see celebrities, fashion editors and street style fashionistas, we’re often tempted to say that they can look as good as they do because of their unlimited funds. “Real” people could never pull that style off without taking a second mortgage on their home, or going without food for a few weeks.
I’ve practically been drooling over them since I spotted them come down the runway last year. Ok, if we’re being honest I’ve been surprisingly into ALL things Gucci from the BELTS, to the LOAFERS and to this BAG that I just can’t get out of my head.
A blue button down may not be the most sartorially exciting piece in your closet, but man-oh-man… can it work!
I’m all about those versatile, crossover pieces in your wardrobe that you can take from day-to-night, work-to-dinner — essentially, never take off! No one does it better than the blue button down though. Next time you’re thinking about what to wear to that coffee date or casual outing, stop your panic and just meet me right back here.
Got your online shopping fingers limbered up and ready?
(You’re going to need them…)
SHOPBOP has started stocking it’s fall SALE department and there are some fashion finds that are just too good not to share. We here at THD (and by “we”, I mean ME!) love a good online sale and this one is ideal for filling in those fall style gaps. You know, those final pieces to complete your look for the season?
These late sunsets are like a double edged sword. On the one hand, it’s so nice to be actually able to enjoy the extra daylight hours and really pack in the fun and activities. On the other hand, the longer days and warm weather make me want to be out and about and enjoy my summer vs. sitting home in front of my computer blogging.
