Favorite Fashion Finds

I remember saying WAY BACK when I was 25 years old (in 1999) that I wished I could just shop for a living. Whelp, fast forward 10 years and I started my wardrobe consulting business. I have literally been shopping for a living for 12 years. Each week, I spend around 4 hours online shopping, maybe more. I definitely find some real gems and unfortunately I really can’t buy everything (or I would be broke). I thought it would be great to share some of the amazing things I find with you that I think are trendy, modern and also budget friendly. I think they’re worth showing to you because even if they didn’t work well for me for whatever reason, they might just be exactly what you have been looking for.

All 8 items are all on-trend for fall and under $200!

Cable Knit Sweater

One big fall trend is cable knit anything! I love that this BB Dakota sweater only has the cable knit look on the sleeves for a subtler take on this trend.

Puff Sleeve Top

Nation LTD has quickly become my go-to for chic tops and tees. This top has gorgeous puffed shoulders, a mock neck, and gold button details on the back. If you’re a fan of the Bridgerton Effect trend, this top is for you!

Puffer Jacket

Puff jackets and coats are always on-trend during the fall and winter but this year, we’re seeing them in different colors, oversized silhouettes, and with interesting details. This Sam Edelman puffer is right at that $200 mark, but it reminds me so much of my favorite SAM. New York puffer that I had to share! This will be a go-to all fall/winter if you don’t already have a puffer you love!

Sweater Vest

This pullover sweater by L’Academie fits into a few fall trends…the first being the sweater vest trend. They are HUGE this fall! You can wear them on their own, over a tee, or over a button-down for a cool, polished look. We’re also seeing sweater vests like this one in updated tailoring looks. If you’re not sure what I mean, make sure you check out the trends post linked above!

Cutout Top

Cutouts are SO big right now! We’re seeing them on necklines, shoulders, midsections, on pants, etc. I love that otherwise basic black top, is made a little extra special with the unique cutout detail. This top will also be great for layering this fall. And it’s only $69!

Sweater Dress

Kick your luxe loungewear game up a notch with this $78 sweater dress by Wayf! It comes in this pretty dark brown and camel. I’d wear this with chic heeled booties for an effortlessly cool look.

Satin Dress

I love this pretty satin champagne-colored dress! It has a super flattering tied waist, I love the long sleeves, and the color is perfect for lightening up a darker fall/winter wardrobe. It is on the shorter side, which is fine for petites but if you’re taller, you could wear it as a tunic top! Wondering which trend this is associated with? Futuristic Fashion! You could go all-out with the futuristic fashion trend but something satin like this dress is a subtle way to try it out!

Black Booties

Last but not least…these black Schutz booties are a must-have for fall. If you don’t already have a dressier pair of black booties, these are perfect and under $150! I actually did buy these. I have them in Spain.

  3. I’M really sad there are people insulting you on your blog. While, let’s face it, tHis is not life or deaTh work and some ppl would say it’s superficial, you are touching so many ppl’s lives! In our own Little worLds, what we wear and how we feel about ourselves wearing it, really does matter and has a huge impact on Self-esteem.

    You have DEFINITELY Helped me and my pathetic after kids’ wardrobe. I’ve Always lOved clothing but during my “birthing years” tried to convince myself that Clothing dIdn’t matter, that i should looK more mature and focus more on my babies. That just WASN’T me and after i had my 3rd son started searching for an alternative. It had been 5 years since i really cared so i didn’t know where to start. Somehow i found your blog and it changed my style and my life!! I aM so grateful for all of your tips and style suggestions. BeIng just one size smAller Than you, i can usually coUnt on Most of your picks fitting me well too. I lOve the idea of classucs with a tWist, just like you. I no longer feel Like just a mom and i feel lIke who i used to be. Thank You for All of that.

    I can’t spEak for the nay-sayers and what might be happening in their lives, but they obviously aren’t interested in what you have to say. They might just want to make someone else feel bad. please don’t let them have that Kind of control over you. There are so many of us who love the work you do! I look forward to reading and seeing more of your tips and choices. And btw, i loved the railroad track phrase. Very rElatAble. I even started checking the jeans in my closet.????

    1. What a lovely note. Thank you so much, Danielle!! I think unhappy people lash out at whomever. It’s sad, but there’s not much I can do about it. I appreciate your support!! Erin xo
