Fashion Friday: Fall Must Haves

Posted on September 09, 2011 by 1 | 3 Comments

Since this is my first post, I felt it necessary to blog about my second love, FASHION!!  The first of course being interior design. :)  There is nothing that gets me more excited for fashion than fall!  I love the layering, the textures, and most of all the rich colors that fall fashion brings.   Every year I find myself making a list.  What do I need to update my wardrobe?  Below are some of my must haves for fall.  I am not scared of bold patterns, bright colors, and taking chances. Fashion is supposed to be FUN!
Fall's Must Have Items
If you haven't discovered Polyvore, you have been missing out.  It is a great website that allows you to put together your dream outfits.  Above is a pulled together look of my fashion must haves.  Do jade green and leopard work together?  Ummm, yes.

 First up is a classic feminine blouse.  The classic silhouette of this top is timeless, and a great transition from summer to fall.  Try it with a pair of jean cutoffs, or a great pair of black slacks.

 Everyone needs a pair of these super flattering flare jeans.  The darker the wash, the better.  These will look great with a tucked in silk blouse and gold little skinny belt.  Think updated 70's chic.

 This might be one of my favorite fall trends, the faux fur vest.  I love it with the feminine blouse and flare jeans, or with a pair of skinnies and a white t-shirt.  Plus, no animals were harmed, so it's a win win.

 Every woman needs a versatile, lady-like satchel bag.  It is the go-to bag for an on-the-go girl.  There is something about carrying your purse in the crease of your arm.  It instantly makes you look more refined.  It's true.  I promise.

 I think leopard is NEVER out of style.  Having said that, it is everywhere this fall, and I couldn't be more thrilled.  I love these leopard shooties.  Half shoe, half boot, and totally awesome.

 Studs.  Get a pair.

Ray Ban Aviators available at
Last, but definitely not least, my go to sunglasses.  The Ray Ban Aviators may not be a new fall trend, but they totally complete the look.  I think when adding new trends to your closet it is important not to go overboard.  Even though the items above are so "now," I can still see myself wearing them in years to come.  I did not skimp on the prices for my must haves, but if you check back next week I might have a little bargain shopping post for your reading enjoyment.  Until next time!!

Hi Amanda! I’m lovin’ your fashion picks. They are hip and young but could also be worked into a “more mature” (like me) woman’s wardrobe too.
