I don’t know what it is about charcoal but at first sight, you’d look at the color of this coat and think… “meh” and then when you pair it with something fun like floral pants, or a cute blush pink statement purse like this one, it brings the coat to LIFE. I got this coat last year courtesy of 5 preview, LAST season but this coat has proven to be nothing short of timeless. *photos by Jenny Coerbell*

I love love love these shoes so much and love them even more now that I’ve successfully transitioned them into the fall. Maybe not so much in the winter with the snow and all, but for the fall? Yes, yes and yessss. The skirt I bought a year ago from Zara and its still quite classic. I just love wearing tights and stockings under skirts and shorts for the fall. I think the look is so chic and cute! Isnt it fun being a girl?! Lol. We have soooo many ways to wear so many things. Love this!

So lets start with the simplicity of it all. This black sweater. I bought this sweater at Zara on sale for $10. Who knew, $10 would go this far, for a quality made sweater. I’ve already worn it 3 times. Then, these jeans. I have been searching for a pair of boyfriend jeans FOREVER. I just wanted to find the right pair that flatters my body in the right way and finally by George I think I’ve got it, lol. But they’re seriously feel like my bf’s jeans. Except he’s 6’5 so his jeans would probably look crazy on me >_<.
These boots!!!! Yassssss. Lol. Honey I bought these at Aldo about a month and a half ago but because of the pointy toe I decided to stick a shoe stretcher in them for a few weeks before I actually wore them. Leave a “#yas” in the comment box below if you think Aldo makes some of the most uncomfortable shoes in the game. Its like they’re super cute but the utmost uncomfortable. All design and no comfort I guess. And it doesn’t help that now that they know every one is complaining they’re pushing they’re sales associates to sell us accessories to put inside the shoes. BUT, I will say, with all of that happening they’ve done a great job of turning that around. After I stretched the shoe a little, they were of the most comfort I’d ever felt in a boot with a heel that height. The sales associate even offered to stretch it there and I could come back to pick it up a few days later (awwww, how sweet :-} ). So good job to Aldo for turning things around! Before, no amount of shoe stretching could save an Aldo shoe, and now they’ve heard the angels sing and answered our prayers of delivering style with comfort!.
Last but not least, this beautiful multi color faux fur coat. The colors!!!! ugh!!!! SUCH a perfect combination/blend of colors. I snagged this baby last year at ASOS’s end of season sale. P.S. thats the best time to buy all the things you’ve been coveting all season long!. That sale was so delicious I had to scoop 2 faux fur baddies. I got this one and a blush colored long one that I LOOOVE. You’ll see more of it later on in the season btw

The colors in this first photograph are so beautiful and fully representative of the feeling I had that day. Such a beautiful mix of colors. I had just completed a revamping of my closet and added a nice bunch of fall pieces that were of the best quality I had ever spent money on. I was proud of myself for being able to treat myself in ways that I was never able to before. There comes a certain level of comfort that you feel when you’re able to look at the fabric and craftsmanship of a piece of clothing and tell yourself that something is worth it. And its not even about buying a ton of expensive stuff, but being able to mix it in with lesser expensive pieces is what its about. Buying things at a bargain price too, buying things off season and just investing into one thing you love instead of 50 things you wont wear or appreciate after time.
The sweater I got at a Zara in Philadelphia and I was even more excited that it was 100% wool. So not only will it keep me warm but it will last me well into the future. Many, many seasons to come! I got so tired of buying cheap ones that bead up after 2 washes and almost never made it into another season. Then of course the coat. THIS COAT. If you could only imagine all the drama I went through to snag it? Ughhhh!!! I wont even get into it here. I said I’d do a video on it, lolol, so I’ll just leave it at that. But I finally got my hands on it at the Zara in Philadelphia (p.s. clothing is tax free there, so I was in HEAVEN, and I mean not like in NY where its only on items under $110, Philly had tax free at any price point!). Anyway, of course I’m up at 3:43 in the a.m. doing this, so let me get my life and catch you lataaaaa!!!! MUAHHHHH! *photos by Edomia*
Just a quick recap on the looks thus far for fall. I cant believe we’re already in November. I just had a bday in January, then it finally warmed up, then summer was in full effect and the Fashion Week closed it all out. And BAM, just like that its November. Tomorrow is December and the day after is New Years >_<. Lol, sorry if I just kept it too real *covers eyes*
In any event! Are you ready for the cold? I’ll be posting some sweater looks, and layering ideas to help transition from the Fall into Winter. In the meantime?
