Fall Must Haves

Just wanted to thank the SITs girls for featuring me today. Welcome to all of those who are new to my site. Hope you enjoy.

Must Have List for Fall 2009

Nothing like the changing seasons to get excited about updating your closet. Below are a few of my must haves for the upcoming fall season to help inspire you until the September issues hit your mailbox!

Leopard Print Blouse

Animal prints are everywhere this season, but they’ve managed to live in my closest for some time now. I’ve never met an animal print I didn’t like. I love this blouse because it has just enough sass but when paired with jeans or a pencil skirt it won’t make you look like you’re channeling Catwoman.

D&G Leopard Print Blouse, $415

Rational Buy





Black Blazer

There are many versions to the blazer this season. But there’s one that really has my eye…a fitted blazer rocking exaggerated shoulders. It has my name written all over it. Throw it over a delicate floral print dress to add a little edge to your outfit.

D&G Peak Lapel Blazer, $695

Rational Buy







Sequin Skirt

Looking to liven up your wardrobe…just add sequins. There’s no need to be afraid of looking like a disco ball if done properly. Pair with opaque black stockings, flat boots, white tissue t-shirt and a fitted jean jacket and you’ll have mastered the casual-modern look.

Haute Hippie Mini Skirt, $295

Rational Buy






Over-the-Knee Boots

As soon as I saw these at Barney’s a few months ago it was love at first sight. There are so many ways to wear them, where to start? Throw on with leggings and an over-sized sweater that’s belted at the waist and you’re all set for Saturday brunch. You’re sure to be the one everyone is checking out wishing they could have your style.

Chloe Over the Knee Boot, $1,195

Rational Buy









Red Bag

Red…it’s not just for Valentine’s Day this year. It’s the easiest way to add some spice to your closet. I love this bag from Balenciaga. Not only is it the perfect color, but it has a bit of hardware to give it a touch of roughness.

Balenciaga Work Handbag, $1595

Rational Buy

I love red bags! Especially when paired with red shoes. It makes such a statement!

Mesina said...

Congrats on your SITS day! Oh I love how you've put the fashion designer item and then the rational buy option. Really great idea! The blog is delicious, the best of luck to you in the future!! xx

Ms Dragonfly said...

luv the 'rational buy' jacket! beautiful. that shade of red in the bag is perfection! i'll have to get one but @ target, budget as it is :)

lov said...

oh happy sits day!!!

Valerie said...

lol It is no secret to my family or my readers that I have NO fashion sense! You reinforced that with the fact the only thing I liked was the blazer. But even that is way too much for me to spend my money on :) I must say though that I have enjoyed reading your blog. Congrats on being FB! I hope your SITS day is great!

The Blonde Duck said...

Happy SITS day!

Lynn from For Love or Funny said...

Denise said...

Stopping by from SITS....I LOVE those boots & the purse, the rest is just not my style. I LOVE how you show the designer version & then a comparable affordable option!!!

Barely Domestic Mama said...

Congrats on being the FB over at SITS!

I'm loving the black blazer and red bag.

parentingBYdummies said...

Love that red bag, but I'm OBSESSED with bags anyway, so yeah! I wonder how I'd look chasing the dudes in that black sequined skirt thingy...Would be a scary day at playgroup, right?! Congrats on your SITS day. Enjoy!

A Fist Full of Dandelions said...

I have to confess...while I'm not a fashionista, I do love the bag!

First time visitor from SITS. Love the looks. Off to go check out more. Unfortunately unless you have a maternity section I will have to wait a few months to try any new looks.

Jennifer Juniper said...

I love the over the knee boots...not sure how practical they would be in the school pick up line, but I'm willing to find someplace fun to wear them!

Happy sits day to you, wishing you lots and lots of comments :)

Debbie said...

Happy SITS day! I could really use your help. I am style challenged!

Karen said...

Congrats on your SITS day!

Looks like you have some fun fashion. Of course, if I tried to wear a sequined skirt, I'm pretty sure the fashion police would arrest me for indecency!

Have a great day!
