Fall Fashion Guide: The Best Boots For Every Budget

Is there anything better than sliding on a new cozy pair of boots this time of year ? I shop for boots right when they hit the store because they are one of the first things to sell out. Almost everywhere across the U.S. it’s starting to cool down, and it’s time to begin swapping out summer sandals for cold weather boots because it is safe to say your fall wardrobe is not complete until you have found the perfect pair of boots. If you want a boot, there is definitely one out there just for you at the perfect price point!

During Halloween season we always see the typical flapper dress and when you think of The Roaring Twenties, flappers, jazz, lavish parties, the Charleston and The Great Gatsby may come to mind.

The flapper, as most people know, is the beaded dress with red lips and bobbed hair look. But a flapper was not just a look — it was an attitude. They were characterized as being different, risk-takers, rebellious, going against the status-quo, sexual and freed from previous restrictions. Their attitude brought about the sexy and flashy beauty and fashion trends that we see inspiring people today.

9 Gray Items I’m Craving This Fall

via Elle

Gray is one of my favorite neutral colors. It seamlessly blends together black and white to produce a soft gray that looks great with my skin tone. Because I have a darker complexion, it is able to pick up my purple undertones and accentuate them. The color compliments me in every way imaginable, and it is for that reason that the color gray matters to me and my fall wardrobe. My wish list of items range from footwear to home décor because my obsession with this color knows no bounds. In a nutshell, gray is a color of composure as it sits between two opposite colors (black and white), but it is also a classic, which is sleek and refined. Its ability to be all these things is why my fall must-have color is gray.

Is H&M’s Sister-Brand “& Other Stories” the Next Big Thing ?

via Sarah Illenberger 

H&M’s sister-brand, & Other Storiesmade its grand debut this week with the opening of its first US flagship store in New York City. On Thursday, October 16th, a lucky few stood in line and waited as this “must-have” European brand unlocked its doors for the first time. As evident by the storefront’s long line and crash of its e-commerce site, which works in tandem with the NYC location, & Other Stories‘ stateside presence has been long anticipated. And why shouldn’t it be? The brand is in a league of its own.

“Basic non-basics” is how they characterize themselves, and their collaborations as well as each piece of their in-house collection (which ranges from a $8 hand lotion to a $475 mohair-blend coat) resonates with an element of simplicity and luxury. There’s no doubt in my mind that & Other Stories be a new shopping favorite for the US fashionista, for their key to success lies not only in their partnership with retailer favorite, H&M, but their ability to produce collections that can compete with top contenders like COS, Topshop, and Zara. And luckily, they’re doing just that.
