Last month I kicked in to Fall gear and started planning my Fall wardrobe. Each season I splurge on key looks that I mix with old stuff from my existing wardrobe. Accessories are very important when updating– I buy a lot of shoes, belts, jewelry and bags (but of course!) As are jackets and coats for Fall. Above is a collage of what I purchased recently with a few items from my closet.
YSL- the only three initials I need this Fall! 1. & 3.The two jackets and 2. silver peplum top I ordered yesterday are to die for! All are gorgeous with a pair of cigarette pants or extra long flared pants. Giving a shout out to Brian Solis from YSL Headquarters- thanks for helping me pick out the goods! All at YSL boutiques or Neiman Marcus. (Call Giovanni at Neiman Marcus YSL- 972-629-1700 ext 2037)
Shoes- 5. My sequined Louboutins are from last season (purchased on
sale at Neiman Marcus at 65% off– I had been looking for them all season and then there they were– magically on the sales rack in my size, it felt like Christmas!) but I will wear them through the
6. These Marni shoes ($795) are so diva-licious! My friend The Shoe Goddess is obsessed with Marni shoes, too. She bought four pairs from this collection!
Bold Jewelry- I am really into Kara Ross chunky cuffs- being petite, I wear one big piece at a time. 8. I’ve had this black Hematite cuff from the Kara line for almost a year. 7. The two fuschia ones are what I want to add this Fall.
9. I picked up this glittering necklace yesterday at Neiman Marcus ($400)- it was a simple long strand so I tied a knot to the side to give it a bit of attitude. I wear the knot crooked on the side, not smack middle which is too old fashioned. But for dressy occasions, I can still wear it as a long strand.
Coats- 10. I mentioned I got the Miu Miu Double-breasted princess coat $1,320 at net-a-porter.com last week, it arrived the next day (love Net-a-porter!) and fit me like a dream. I am planning many looks around this lovely princess coat!
Hats- I love hats and have dozens that I’ve collected through the years. 11. I picked up this cheeky berry colored Fedora hat by Marzi at Neiman Marcus yesterday ($260)– it will perk up all of my black and gray coats! 12. The dark gray Fedora hat is vintage, I got it in Paris in June, it is from “Huckel- Seit 1799″ Paris 1900 – 12, Avenue P.V. Couturier Vitry Sur Seine– 4. and it has a small crest on back corner. It is in pristine condition and I can’t wait to wear it all winter long! Jeans and a white shirt with a black coat, my fuschia Miu Miu princess coat, it will go with so many things!
Waist cinching belt- 13. YSL belt with elastic band gave me back my pre-baby 21 inch waist! The elastic has sparking metallic thread through it for that extra kick. I will be wearing it with coats, jackets, dresses, everything! $395
That’s it for Act I of my Fall shopping. Stay tuned for Act II when I hit New York and LA in September!
