Fall Fashion Part One – September 2017: Dresses and Jumpsuits #fashion #shopping #beauty


Good Afternoon! It’s been awhile since I’ve done a fashion piece so every couple of days I’m going to provide my picks from a certain categories in ladies fall Fashion. 

I liked too many clothing, shoes, and accessories to put everything in one or two blogs posts or to put all pictures on one mood board. I have tried to have a variety of price points, to some degree, as well. 

If I have time I’ll try to do some men’s fashion after the ladies! Enjoy!

Fall/Winter Wardrobe 2015/2016


I have chosen a bunch of pieces from some of the clothing stores I regularly shop at that I view as key wardrobe pieces for the rest of fall and winter. I hope you enjoy them and find that they build a great variety of clothes you can pull out from your closet and wear with anything.

  1.   I love Banana Republic, especially shopping online. They always have sales anywhere from 25% to 50% off depending on the time of year. I find that their clothes fit well and are made nicely. They don’t shrink or fade easily after being washed. You can go to Banana Republic at your local mall or you can visit: http://www.bananarepublic.ca or http://www.bananarepublic.com.

Another favorite store of mind, that you can find some more interesting and less basic pieces is Anthropologie. They always have interesting, colorful, and fun clothing. About once a month they will have 15% to 20% and/or will have free shipping. You can also visit Anthropologie at your local mall or http://www.anthropologie.com.

The last place I have chosen to show you goods from is a local company to Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Poppy Barley custom make boots and shoes and ship all over the world. They are one of the first companies to make boots for people with wide or narrow calves or other shoe issues. Their foot wear is an investment, but worth the price for custom boots (for example) that will last a long time. You can visit them down at Whyte Ave in Edmonton, AB Canada or at http://www.poppybarely.com.

www.poppybarley.com A great pair of flat boots is a must, these are lovely in gray, but they're all sold out. Try them in another colour perhaps, merlot!

Capsule Wardrobe 2014/2015


In  the 1970’s Susie Faux the owner of a London Boutique called ” Wardrobe” coined the phrase Capsule Wardrobe as a “collection of a few essential items of clothing that will not go out of style . . .”. The term has come to refer to a collection of clothing that is designed to using “only interchangeable items.” So one would buy “key” or “staple” items in “coordinating” colors.

I have seen a few other bloggers, try this so I thought I would give it a go as my Fall/Winter Fashion blog. So, this is my attempt at the Capsule wardrobe using black, grey, and maroon. Key items are in black. Of course, you have to imagine there would be some other items in here like some black tights opaque and polka dot, a black tank, a grey tank, and a maroon tank, and probably a black jacket but I have considered that for this Capsule you either have theses pieces or will pick them up later.

My 5 Favorite Spring/Summer Purchases


Presto! Make Over Skirt
Presto! Make Over Skirt (Photo credit: monettenriquez)

So were all getting ready for spring/summer searching for the latest and greatest fashion items. In Spring we tend to look for color – a freshness and vibrancy to our wardrobe. Each of us are looking for those perfect little individual items that make us fashionably unique, yet stay in our budget. Here are my favorite finds for spring/summer and where you can find them.

1. www.Jacob.ca Polk-a-dot Skirt – $59.00 – The perfect spring option for the little black skirt sits just above your knee so is perfect for work or going out. The polka dots adds a bit of whimsy without being an overwhelming pattern. I could see myself wearing this in summer despite the fact it’s made out of polyester. Perfect with a tank top or dressy shirt!

Polka-dot skirt

2. www.bananarepublic.ca Knit Cross Front Dress $95.00 The perfect little summer dress in everybody’s favorite turquoise color of the season. I can see myself wearing this somewhere hot with flip-flops in the day but dressing it up with some gold sandals and jewelry at night. Best of all it’s totally comfy.

 

3. www.modcloth.com Here to Stay -ple Shorts $14.99 These cute little spandex shorts are perfect to where under skirts and dresses, especially since skirts have a tendency to fly up in the breeze. They are available in black or tan and completely stay up around your waist and down around your legs with little elastics. I love them!

4. http://www.etsy.com Bali Pearl Bracelet $42.00 I juts discovered this amazing jewelry site today. All jewelry is handcrafted especially for brides and bridesmaids; however, I just happened to like this bracelet and think it will go with a lot of things I and other people own.
