Fall = Knits!

Fall is in the air here in NYC. You know what fall means to me? Knits! I can't wait to get my hands on some new sweaters. Those with large cable knit patterns on the front are on the top of my list. I went to check out what Urban Outfitters had for their fall sweater selection this year and as per usual, I was not disappointed.
 Drape Cardigan: Love the draped front and I am pretty crazy about the print. The vintage 70's feel of it really makes it.
 Ecote Mohair Sweater: The neutral color of this sweater just seems like I would want to wear it every day. The basic element of the cut and the texture of the knit makes me really love this one.
Leopard Sweater: Urban had a similar style to this with a crew neck last fall. I am pretty sure I posted about it then....haha. Never got it though and I am pretty drawn to this one as well.
 Cable Fisherman Cardigan: Large cable knit details are my obsession at the moment. I also love the oatmeal color of this sweater. Naming the color oatmeal almost sold me on the sweater alone.The brown leather buttons have an old fashioned appeal to them completing this old man sweater look that makes me feel like I would live in this sweater.
Cable Stitch Tunic: Large cable knit down front. Need I say more?
 Cropped Pullover: Everyone needs a great cropped sweater. This one is pretty basic which I really love and the cerulean blue color is amazing!
Open Stitch Cable Poncho Sweater: Crochet effect with the large holes on this sweater makes it unique and it would make it a great layering piece. I am just loving texture a lot lately.
 Elbow Patch Pullover: Elbow patches say "old man sweater" to me which for me is a plus. Classic feel.
Speckled Sweater: Liking the different knit patterns on this sweater and the mustard color is one of my favorite fall colors. It just says fall to me.
Pullover Sweater: Stripes again. I mean yeah, I probably don't have enough stripe sweaters. Probably.....

A Practical Pant

It seems like every other post is about leopard print so you would think my entire closet is stocked full with nothing but leopard print. It is not though (if you said the same to me about stripes I would have to give in and say yes most of my closet is striped)!

Which is why I am in desperate need of these:

Joe's Jeans Skinny Jeans in Leopard! I can't wear blue jeans at my new job (black are fine), so wouldn't these be a practical purchase? Right? RIGHT? Okay, maybe not so practical, but I love them! Throw a white t-shirt over them and a black blazer and you are set to go.

They Are Called Classic for a Reason

Rag and Bone. I think I become more obsessed with them every day. It is at the point where I am basically doing free publicity for them 24/7. A friend actually asked me if I worked for their PR department because my facebook status was more often then not a about Rag and Bone or reposts of people spotted wearing Rag and Bone. Sadly no, I do not work for them....just obsessed.

Fall has come around now and it has led me on the search for the perfect boot. Not necessarily one I can afford (why would that be important? haha) and I would like to announce I have found it:
The Newbury Classic by Rag and Bone. The perfect heel height for some height but also not impossible to walk in.  The perfect rounded toe with a slight point (this is key for me. Toe shape makes or breaks a show for me).  Love the ankle cut. I don't even need to mention that it seems like every celebrity has a pair of these, because they are that fantastic. They come in suede and other colors than black too.

If you have a spare $495 go out and get them now. They aren't called The Classic Newbury for no reason. Their classic, so you will love them forever and never regret spending the money, right?! I am still trying to calculate how I can achieve having these....Rag and Bone, stop being so great.

Leopard Print is for Ladies

Its been a long time since I have posted (bad me). Forgive me though, because I have not been avoiding fashion all together. It was fashion week here in NYC and I have been spending an obscene amount of time stalking all the shows pictures.  That is supposed to make me feel better about being so negligent about posting,

Stumbled upon this this fantastic bag the other day though and have been obsessed ever since. Which sparked the idea that it was time to post again.
The Edie Bag from J Crew. I love how classic it looks! The bag comes in red, black, and camel, but there is in particular that I am more obsessed with;

I just love the leopard print one! The leopard print flap on the bag is calf hair. I don't know why but I am just obsessed with leopard print calf hair (or pony hair, see previous post about leopard print flats). Its divine and I love the simplicity of the bag. Of course the leopard print one is  more expensive than the other Edie options....the one I like is always the most expensive I swear.
Normally I do not love beige or tan, but I for some reason love the lining on this bag. The compartment set up inside seems really nice too. The border line old lady feel to this bag has me most attracted to it I am pretty sure.
