Listen, I love New York Fashion Week as much as any other clothing-obsessed woman, but it makes me feel REALLY poor. As much as I would love to go out and buy Tory Burch’s new collection or a Jason Wu dress I have bills to pay and a husband to feed. But a new season = a new excuse to buy some new (not-so-expensive) clothes right?! Check out my favorite trends and picks for Fall 2012!
Kirna Zabete Metallic Jacquard Skirt
Metallics/leather textures are all the rage this fall. I’ve seen this skirt in person and it looks much more expensive than it is. For less than $40, it’s a steal! At Target.
Merona Trench Coat
Brocade and paisley are HUGE for Fall. Make a statement in this not-so-run-of-the-mill trench! Less than $40 at Target.
MNG by Mango Slim Leg Pants
Hunter green is a the perfect Fall season color— vibrant yet subdued and classy. I definitely plan on adding these pants to my denim collection.
ASOS Curve Lace Dress With Mesh
Who said bigger girls can’t be fashionable ;-) The rich colors of this A-line dress make it flattering on the body and perfect for the cooler months. Comes in sizes 14-22! At ASOS.
INC International Concepts Dress
This Autumn, it’s all about mixing textures, and this mixed media dress does just that. The peplum is flattering on all body types, while the faux leather adds a bit of edginess. It’s the perfect day-to-night dress! Only at Macy’s.
Dirty Laundry Showstopper Boot
It’s a pretty well known fact that Fall = Boots. Keep your look edgy, yet feminine with these shoes from DSW.
Sweaters definitely got an overhaul this season. Be ready for some funky styles with embellishments, animal prints, or straight up animals! Both of these can be found at Piperlime.
Hunter Green Blazer
Since this color is so big this season, I plan on stocking up on a blazer too! Perfect to color block with my mint skinny jeans from the Spring season, or look polished on a pair of (p)leather pants. From Forever 21.
Glam Cheetah Collar
Why just wear animal print on your clothes when you can wear it in your jewelry too? This cheetah print necklace is the perfect statement piece to wear with your new Fall clothes! From my new favorite place to purchase jewelry, BaubleBar.
Whether you decide to purchase any of the above or not, remember you can usually score the best deals via online shopping. I like to use eBates. My friend over at Fashion Addict Stargazer put me onto it. Basically it’s a website that gives you cash back on purchases that you’ve made online at certain stores. I SWEAR it’s not a gimmick or a scam, I’ve actually received money back from them (you have the option of receiving a check or into your PayPal account. I prefer the latter). Use this link and head over to eBates right now. They are currently doing double cash back on a lot of stores such as Sephora, Nordstrom, Macy’s, and Victoria’s Secret. Once you sign up (using my link please! Everyone gets referral specials), just go to eBates when you want to shop. Type in the name of the store and it’ll create a “tracking ticket” of your purchase and forward you to the store’s website. Using that same page, buy your stuff and voila.. you get cash back to you!
Happy shopping & it feels so good to be back to blogging!
