I bought this gorgeous beaded white dress from Zara, and I was planning on rocking it for Fall with thick tights. This pleasant weather,however, allowed me to wear the dress bare legged with my Rag & Bone boots. I couldn’t decide what coat to wear with it, so I decided to try out two different looks. First, I paired the dress with this incredible leopard coat I got from Nordstrom! What a great buy! It’s waterproof and super warm!  A leopard coat is a staple every girl should have in her closet, and at this price, it’s worth it!  Second, I tried it on with the sweater I bought at the Margiella for H&M preview I attended two weeks ago. (I love how designers are making their lines more affordable for the general public by doing collaborations!)  I love the look of white on white as well. What was that rule about white after Labor Day? Yea….right…..so 10 years ago! LOL  BTW, I am loving my Pamela Love medium tribal spike necklace! (Last seen HERE). It’s bold, unique, and makes any outfit more special!

I paired two of Fall’s biggest trends for a fresh look: metallics and burgundy.  I found this awesome metallic skirt at Minusey for a great price.  I think the skirt adds a great pop of color in this dark, dismal Fall weather!  My burgundy quilted Balenciaga jacket is still my favorite Fall piece, and the color is just amazing.  I shot these photos in Astoria where I live……LOVE this city!  All photos by the amazing Katharine Andriotis.

I love colored jeans!  One of the things I am looking forward to this Fall is being able to rock the trend of bright colored, printed, and textured jeans! My love of interesting jeans actually dates back to my childhood.  I remember when I was about 11 years old, my older cousins would come visit me, and they were all wearing jeans with either designs, painted pictures, or cool embroidery on them.  I was so jealous! As I got older, the idea of “printed jeans” wasn’t really in style anymore…….so plain jeans it was for me. 🙁  But now that the trend is back, and improved in my opinion, I am all over it!  It’s an easy way to elevate your outfit, and update your look!  We saw this trend being worn earlier this Spring and Summer, in the form of neon jeans, and tons of jeans with either flowers or warm weather designs on them.  But, for this Fall, the trend is jeans in more jewel toned colors, jeans with deep embroidery, (think your grandma’s drapes), and of course, jeans printed with tons of patterns. ( I recently scored a bunch of awesome jeans at Zara, stay tuned for future blog posts with those)  But yesterday, I kept it simple with my new favorite bright red jeans, on sale from SHOPBOP!  (Buy them HERE!!! ….and similar red jeans HERE, and HERE)  I kept the rest of my outfit black to offset the red.  My Celine Nano is my favorite cross body bag.  It’s great when you are on the go! (Similar cross body bags HERE, and HERE)  Oh, and my Rag & Bone Newbury boots are the best investment purchase I ever made! Seriously, they are the most comfortable ankle boots on the planet! Just read the reviews HERE to see that I  am not kidding!  What are you most looking forward to this Fall?
