First Fall Haul!

IMG_3752Even though it’s still t-shirt and sandal weather, I’m starting to think about Fall. And this is my first haul! Some bought in-store, some online. Not a ton of stuff, but some key pieces that I see myself wanting to wear again…and again. Where to start? Hard to say. I love each and every one of these AFFORDABLE finds.

IMG_3717This Army/Field Jacket is simply amazing for all its details and its price. Love the black tassels and rough fringed hem, not to mention the patch pockets (useful!) and don’t-mess-with-me epaulets. But wait until you see the back!

IMG_3729Yay! Everything I love…tassels, pom-poms, embroidery…beads…tiny mirrors…seriously!

All I can say is wowza! I know I will be wearing this day after day and loving it. Zara strikes again!

IMG_3701Next up? A button-up faux leather skirt. I will be wearing it now with a cool graphic tee and sandals or sneakers and with tights and booties when the temps drop. It’s a swingy silhouette that I think is flattering on everyone. And it looks way more luxe in person than its price tag. Love it!

IMG_3648This duo is from the fashionistas at Who What Wear and their collaboration with Target. What can I say? These key wardrobe adds-ons are spot on. And again, look way  more expensive than their price tags.

IMG_3659Can I just express my love for these faux fur slides?!? They are soooo comfortable and look like a million bucks. Really! I’m thinking these are going to become my travel shoes for the foreseeable future.

IMG_3650Ring-handled bags are ruling the designer collections, and this one is a dead ringer for its MUCH more expensive alternatives. BTW, red is a huge color for Fall 2017 and this cutie is the perfect way to be on trend without breaking the bank. It comes with a goldtone shoulder strap, so you can also wear it as a crossbody.

IMG_3611Some super pretty, super affordable wardrobe sprucer uppers that I just could not resist.

IMG_3613How cute is this embroidered top-handle bag? It’s not roomy but it’s perfect for date night. I think I’m going to carry it by its handle, but it does come with a crossbody strap.

IMG_3635Let’s just say these velvet ballerinas are the bees knees. Or toes. All I know is they look like something you’d see from Gucci or Chanel or Ferragamo…for a fraction of the price.

IMG_3623Fabulous faux-fur danglers that are light as a feather are music to my ears…and…cough… sagging earlobes. I think they will be perfect once winter sets in.

IMG_3683This pearl-bedazzled short-sleeved sweater tee looks sooooo much cuter on. It’s super soft, drapey in a good way and just bling-y enough to say “hey there.” It will be in heavy rotation as far as my wardrobe goes.

IMG_3675Can I just say…princess…in the city? (As in Carrie Bradshaw!) This embroidered tulle skirt is swoon-worthy. I’ll be wearing it with converse all-stars and a tee or sweatshirt, as well as a silky black cami, moto jacket and heels. You get the idea.

All in all, my First Fall Haul ran me just over $300. And as far as I’m concerned that is A LOT of fashion bang for the buck. I’d love to know what you think about my faves. And I’d love to hear about yours!
