With all the new fall pieces coming out this month, I’ve been experiencing a great deal of wardrobe lust. Here are a few of my favorite items.
J. Crew Evie long dress in navy blue chiffon. This dress makes me think of relaxed, luxurious outdoor dinner parties somewhere on the Mediterranean. Of course, not having any such events to attend, I would wear this to the upcoming preview night of Nikki McClure’s new exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Craft, which I get to attend as a special guest because of my internship. Such perks!
These strangely appealing Ikka booties from Anthroplogie have a vaguely 70’s vibe, and I find myself drawn to the unique, but still minimalist detailing.
It’s been a while since I had a really great leather jacket, and if this one from the Gap goes on sale anytime soon, I might just splurge. I love the buttery, distressed look of the leather, as well as the slim, modern lines; it can be hard to find a cute leather jacket in a plus size that isn’t cut like some incredibly tacky blazer from the 90’s, and this one is just about perfect in my book.
I don’t think that my wardrobe could survive without regular infusions of basic black, and this little cutout dress from Damn You Alexis has been on my radar since the brand opened in 2010. If I ever get three hundred dollars to splash out on a party dress, it will probably be this one.
Also from J. Crew, this blue resin and rhinestone link necklace just screams shameless Old Hollywood affluence. There is an equally cool version in tortoiseshell on the website.
Finally, I just want these ASOS Curve red skinny jeans for kicks. Because they’re so delightfully in-your-face, but you can totally make them summer-in-Italy cool with a little black boatneck and a pair of espadrilles. Or, do what I would do, and go full out with sky-high chunky leather heels and a slim tunic top. Either way, you’re sure to get attention. What about you? What items are you longing to add to your collection this fall?
