Fall into Fall

Fall may be a long time away but it sure is present on the runway! Many designers have busted their chops and brought us some of the best stuff to date! I wanna be in the know and I am sure you do to, so here are my favorite looks for this upcoming fall season!

Vera Wang

I think what got me is the gloves, it's made like there supposed to be there, like they should be there, and that ladies and gents is utter genius. Oh and well Vera's just my homie in general.
Check out more of the line here


I definitely love the effortless mix between feminine and masuline here. It gives me a seventies vibe and let's just say I am digging it. Click here for more!

Matthew Williamson

A look always wins in my book when you can picture yourself wearing the clothes in everyday life. I literally just pictured myself winning an award (not sure for what) in that  dress. View line here.

Roksanda Ilincic

when I look at this it feels like things I haven't seen, basically something fresh and new. The pleated pants, origami hats,  and OMG that canary gown, all an A+ in my book. View line here.


When I first saw this look it made me think of a war goddess  A woman who is warrior and princess at the same time, I love the  idea. It takes you back in time to an era where it all here to see more!


I stumbled upon this line one day and ever since I have loved everything that has been presented. I feel Guillaume Henry hits the mark every time! This line reminds me of that cool British school girl that you never knew you could be, but now you can. With the draping,  on point patterns, and unique shapes it is definitely something to live for! To see this awesomeness click here!


I like the color palette for this line. I think it meshes well with the pant types and over sized coats. Snaps to Iceberg for a job well done. Click here for a chill!

Luisa Beccaria

Elegance is bliss so Luisa Beccaria is very blissful! Elegance, grace, presence, is what I feel throughout the line. I just want to put that blue dress on and wear it all the time. Click here to see more!

Gabriele Colangelo

I feel like this line is a refreshing take on a lady pantsuit. It is has clean, precise, lines and pleated pants. It looks well made, well thought out, and something I wanna buy. To check it out click here.

Paul and Joe

I LOVE this, it's so different, and I love different! It reminds me of the KungFu Panda movie except girl style. It just makes me wanna put on all these closes and pull out a Judy Chop. Lets just say this is a kick away from #1 on my list. Check out more here!

Fall is still a time away, of course we still have summer and spring to tend to but who says you can't plan your wardrobe 8 months I always say do whatever you want...unless it's illegal then you should probably hold off....

Your Wearing What?

We come up with new names for everything these days. Gaup is the new rich, swag is the new stylish, weak is the new funny, lipdub is the new lip syncing, pwned is the new owned, cray is the new crazy, hundo p is the new hundred percent, and the list goes on and on. How does this pertain to fashion you ask? Well here is the good stuff! Many times we wear and buy clothes but we don't actually know the correct terms for. I know that when I say "Oh you know that dress that has one side going that one way and the other side a different way," I am talking about an asymmetrical dress,but others may not. So here is a handy dandy pocket list of some dress types for you to use when dealing with those peeps who never have a clue what your talking about.

Break Open that Piggy Bank

I love Forever 21 as much as the next person but it is a little bit of a ways out from where I live to go to as much as I would like. That’s where online shopping comes in! You can almost find anything you’re looking for online, but the real problem is what to buy and who to buy from. When buying online try searching Google to find out about people who have previously purchased from them before or read the actual reviews on the items. Most sites are legit but doing this can give you a little more comfort when buying with credit or debit cards online. Here are some stores they I have either bought from or read enough reviews to maybe try it out.

This store kind of reminds me of a smaller Forever 21. It sells apparel, accessories, shoes, and jewelry. I have actually ordered from them before and had no problems at all. I ordered some spiked wedges from here and they came in a nice box, wrapped neatly, and even a Thank You card! The only thing was that it took a long time to arrive, like 2 weeks, but it was because of a big storm so really that it wasn't that bad. I would definitely order from this site again and recommend you try it out!
  •          Shipping-$0-$25=$6.00; $25-$49.99=$8.00 (if you want to see higher prices you can view them here)
  •         Accepts- PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express cards and money Orders

Shoes I ordered

  You have probably heard of UrbanOutfiitters they are not only an online store but have stores in various locations. I have also ordered from them and it was a very good experience! I ordered a purse and it arrived in a decent time ( I think like 7 days?).  Also can I note that one time I did the Christmas card thing and won a $25.00 dollar gift card! (#winning- especially because I never win ANYTHING!)To me their vision is like retro, mixed with vintage, mixed with awesomeness! I will go out on a limb and say they are a baby bit expensive to me, but I am frugal so that probably explains that. Anyways I would recommend them especially since they sell apparel, jewels, accessories, shoes, furniture, and some really cool nic-knacks.
  •     Shipping-Free shipping on orders over $50! (To see the rates click here!)
  •     Accepts-Most common cards to see more options click here!
Briefcase bag I ordered
   You may or may have heard of this sassy company. They of course sell shoes but also some apparel, accessories, and jewelry. You actually have to sign up with the site to actually buy shoes, but the good thing is, is that you don't have to pay each month. This is good especially if you don't want to buy anything that month which I know some other sites do. I only bought from them once but  the two pair of shoes I got are very lovely! I actually got one as a gift to my mom and the other pair for me. The shoes came in a nice box and were packaged very nicely it also came with a little bag to put them in! How clever! So I would  recommend you sign up with them if you are willing to pay the 39.95 or higher. Also a side note they sometimes put $5 dollars in your account for you to use!
Buying-Basically most of the shoes are 39.95 and for that you get free shipping (Until March then you will have to spend 49.95). Some shoes are more expensive and some are less if on sale or clearance. 
  Shipping-Shipping is free for 39.95 products till March then it will be 49.95 for free shipping, otherwise you have to pay $4.95. 
 I personally don't like the change because i'm frugal (sadly) but the shipping isn't really that much if you think about it.   I will say that what will probably keep me is the quality and variety of styles. So for now a loyal customer I will be!

This is the box and one pair of the shoes I bought

I just ordered something online from them yesterday for the first time! I was a little eerie because the denim vest I got was final sale but I thought it was worth it. I know some people who have ordered from them and they are pretty good, and I also have shopped in the real store many times and I love their affordable prices and variety of jewelry and clothes. It has a mix of all different styles and you can mostly likely find what your looking for so I would definitely recommend if your a savvy shopper or just looking for cute duds!
  • Shipping-Free shipping on orders over $50! To see others click here!

Vest I ordered

So these are the stores I have ordered but I do I have a few that seem good and that I would like to try!

I haven't bough anything but this shop just seems so rad. I just like the whole vibe it portrays, but anyways definitely head over there and check it out!

Nastygal is something I stumbled upon one day. I think the real cool thing is the story behind the business and the creator. They have lots of vintage items which is different than what is normally seen. They are kind-of pricey in some areas but then again they have high end items such as Litas. I havent ordered from here but I would recommend checking them out. I have read mixed reviews from people ordering items from there.  The reviews  go either really good or just plain bad not really in the middle. I would still try it once though to get my own perspective. I will note that if you order from a different country that you will probably have to pay a parcel fee.

So now you know a couple more places to shop, treat yourself!
