So I am clearly feeling verrrrry chatty today.
Being OCD as I am, I have been scheming about my fall fashion... Can I just say, fall is my favorite season to dress for? I love the rich tones and hues... the weight of the textiles makes my heart do a little autumnal flutter. And I am so ready for it.
First of all, QVC is fast becoming my preferred vendor. Holy crap! It all started with makeup, then I got into the home stuff and now, could it be? I might be crossing into fashion.
Last night, I got raked into Isaac Mizrahi on Q (doesn't he also design a line in Tar-jay?)...Other than the purely comedic value of watching his fabulousness up there talking about clothes like a fashionista he is, he had some really beautiful fall staples. I tots made a wishlist this morning of things I want to buy when I get money...
Um hello, fabulous brown and mustard scarf. I must have you.
I want this belt. First of all, it's a stretchy belt. Second, I love the equestrian look it has to it. Thirdly, it's going to be great for belting anything.. dresses, cardis, tunics...
I have been searching far and wide for a fab trouser jean with a wide leg. I can only remain hopeful that these may be them. I do get sketched out ordering pants online, which are definitely the hardest to fit me in, even when they're tangible... but if you go by your measurements, it's usually nothing a tailor can't fix.
Believe it or not, I have never owned anything like this before. This is a water repellent coat and the taupe color is just dreamy. I keep envisioning this with the scarf.
Horizontal stripes... the infamous enemy of any person seeking a flattering fit. I almost disagree here. This is an iffy piece. I feel like the V neck and length to cover the butt may be enough to trump conventional wisdom about stripes. I think this boyfriend cardi is presh.
To balance a closet of casual and professional dress is challenging, but I have my eyes on these pieces that I am convinced can do both.
Cheers to fall!
