Even 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.
This 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!
Yay! 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!
Next 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!
This 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.
Can 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.
Ring-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.
Some super pretty, super affordable wardrobe sprucer uppers that I just could not resist.
How 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.
Let’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.
Fabulous 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.
This 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.
Can 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!
