Fall Fascination

Despite the fact that September, not only ushers in the lusciousness of Fall but also the manic ditzy nightmare siren of hurricane season, I am still all about it. Move over brutal heat waves! Slide to the left torrid humidity! Piss off mosquitoes! The grown folks are talking now and Madame Autumn is holding court.

Fall 2017 is all about new beginnings for me, personally.  This fall, I am entering into a new phase in my life. I have a sharper focus on what I want to do career wise; I have a great apartment that is big enough to host dinner parties and small shindigs; and the nineties are back and I am about to get all up in the latest takes on velour, corduroy, and floral dresses.

All of my favorite stores and designers are pushing the 90s grunge meets glam rocker agenda and I am onboard. Here are just a spattering of items on my wishlist.

Wrap-front mini dress in Seattle floral, Madewell, $148










Cord button-front skirt, Gap $50















Floral Burnout Slip Dress, Anthropologie $168


















Black High Waisted Button Fly Stretch+ Slim Flare Jeans, Express $80























Somerset Jumper Skirt, Anthropologie $118


















Lace Layering Tee, Anthropologie $58


















Plunging V-Neck Velvet Thong Bodysuit, Express $40




















Criss Cross V Back Sweater, SheIn $18

I can’t decide which one of these brocade heels I like best…it’ll probably be a last minute decision, based entirely on which one is in my size and on sale when I get around to purchasing them.
