what i want now
tall boots i’m not down with hooker boots, but you can’t go wrong with a nice pair of jcrew boots. they are made of quality italian leather and can be dressed up or down. marc jacob snow boots, frye campus boots, tall uggs, and burberry rainboots are also great closet staples especially if you plan on being out in the elements.
blouses anthropologie banana republic freepeople girlshop shopbop for amazing fun styles
bolero/wrap/cardigan anthropolie club monaco & french connection have the best of the best
round toe pumps & open toe pumps the must haves for fall footwear! marc jacobs, bcbg, more affordable styles check out ninewest & there are some cute open toe pumps for $25 @ target!
round toe flats- i usually don’t reccommend flats unless it is a flip-flop (those i will wear until there is 10 ft. of snow on the ground). i don’t normally “do” flats for the simple reason that i am only 5’4. that’s right, i have to be the shortest person in my family other than baby j who is turning one this month!! no joke. my little sister is easily 5’8 and my little brother is 6’1 so i literally got the short end of the stick! anyways i had to throw that in there because somehow complaining makes me feel better about being vertically challenged. anyways despite my height i have fallen in love with some flats this season because they are irressitably cute! i own a pair of metallic banana republic flats in bronze and i wear them every day i can. they honestly look good with everything! the bronze is metallic without being too overpowering, gaudy, or flashy. they are perfect for work and sensible too i might add. they are easily the cutest affordable pair out there as they ring in at $98. if that is still a bit steep for you check out american eagle for seriously comfortable and cheap! flats. i have a pair of AE camel ballet flats w/a pink bow. mine have lasted forever (wearing them now) and they look nearly identical to jcrews ballet flats. the difference is mine wear $25 and jcrews are over $100! for more high end fashions i adore burberry & marc jacobs for their flats. i should also mention that jcrew & banana carry several other styles of flats including flats with a pointed toe.
style tip: don’t be afraid to wear bolder pieces that you may have lying around from previous seasons. i own a pair of gold sequinned flats i purchased last spring that still look good with some fall fashions. in fact i wore them this weekend with a sequinned tank, jeans, and a plunging v-neck sweater for a fun casual look!

juicy hoodie: cameron diaz wears the juicy velour kelly green hoodie in the movie “in her shoes” and looks super cute. (but honestly when doesn’t she?) well, incidently my friend kelly bought one in that same color about a year ago on ebay at a great price. (the hoodie is normally $88) the hoodies are wicked comfortable and i have to admit the juicy hoodies are high quality. the imitation velour tracksuits are simply not as durable, flattering, or as comfortable. i favor the cashmere hoodies b/c i can get away with wearing them at work in the business casual wear, but this is great for weekend wear!
herve chapelier bag great for travelling. waterproof. easy to clean. come in several different color combinations. i reccommend the 925N size for travel or for school. it holds everything but isn’t too big to lose it’s cute factor. also, great authentic herve chapelier bags can be found on ebay from dezinelabs and other great sellers
manolos if i were carrie bradshaw, or mrs. vernon* for that matter, i would have five zillion pairs. unfortunately, i’m not. if anyone knows any manolo hookups in ny let me know, i’ll be first in line. until then i will be checking out neimans for exclusives. my fave pair of the moment!!

for work: two words: banana republic. i favor their tweeds. i own their tweed pants with velvet trim, lace tweed skirt, and their mixed tweed skirt that is very Alexander McQueen without going into cardiac-arrest-style sticker shock pair the tweeds with fun boleros, blouses & shoes and work clothes don’t have to be so boring. working 40 hrs a week really forces you to limit your casual purchases so what i like to do is purchase things that can be worn conservatively but can also be dressed up to
weekend wear: jeans!!!! cords!!! i swear by AG jeans because they fit me so well. I have 2 pairs of the Angel cords, 1 pr of Legend jeans, 1 pr of Rider jeans, & 4 prs of Angel jeans. Like I said I swear by them! i also own the ubiquitous sevens and have tried on every other jean known to man, but nothing has surpassed my love for AG Angel jeans. i also love American Eagle blue issue, Gap straight fit, & Lucky jeans for more affordable wear. ps my boyfriend loves his AGs too b/c they are xtremely comfortable and xtra soft so i would highly recommend them!
