Fall Fashion 2014 Edition

I created this fashion board for fall inspiration. These are favorite pieces of mine that I either own or intend on purchasing this season. 

Must haves for fall:  (These items are my must haves, they're not for everyone, but I love these looks and hope to inspire you and your fall wardrobe)

-Leather Jacket
-Draped blazers. Helmut Lang, Theory and BCBG make beautiful draped blazers.
-Trench Coat. Burberry does the most amazing trench coats. Club Monaco makes a very similar trench to Burberry.
-Fur Vest      (Or Faux)
-Fur Jacket     (Or Faux)
-Destroyed Denim. I tend to do white or light destroyed denim for spring/summer and black destroyed denim for fall/winter
-Leather pants/leggings
-Thigh high, over the knee boots * Absolute must!!
-Sneaker wedges. Ugg boots are a thing of the past (for me anyways) I've moved on to a love for sneaker wedges, Isabelle Marant in particular.
-Knit sweaters. Helmut Lang is my favorite for knits.
-Body suit. Body suits are great for any season but I particularly love them for winter for layering purposes. Under a blazer with jeans is my favorite! Or under a pencil skirt
-Silk blouses. Equipment makes a fabulous silk blouse. I believe these range from $180-$350 but you can get them on Ebay, new with tags from the states for around $100

Now for the celeb inspo! *Warning* There are a LOT of photos in this post but in my opinion when it comes to fashion, the more the merrier ;) I hope you enjoy this post and I'll be sure to continue posting about fall fashion and photos of myself in these looks as well.

I tried my best to group each "look" together. Trench coats, leather, fur, light jackets etc

If you have any questions regarding these looks, where to buy, pieces in particular, leave me a comment and I'll be happy to help xo

Sweaters/draped sweaters/blouses & jeans. Can be dressed up with heels or down with flats.

Destroyed black denim

 This look on Kim K is my definition of perfect for this fall! Black destroyed denim, black see through top, black leather jacket + suede pointy toe pumps. 

Thigh high boots


Light jackets with jeans/leather pants

Trench coats

Fabulous Fur


One of my favorite new trends I failed to include in my inspiration board is suede pointed toe heels. I've been seeing more and more of these and loving it! I purchased my first pair of beige suede Giuseppe Zanotti's that I'm madly in love with! I'll post photos soon!

 Eva's look but with jeans for fall.

  1. Do you have any suggestions or where to find a fabulous poncho?!

    I have been searching for one for over a year now! Last year towards the end of the season I did find a great knitted one at The Gap of all places, but by the time I had gotten in the store they were very limited in sizes/colors. I have yet to find another. Any idea where I might look for one, in store or online?

    Also, any idea where either of those black jackets seen on Kim K might be from? The mid-length draped coat with the tie, and the long cape-like one? Thanks!!!

    1. I bought my first poncho from winners which I loved! It was a black knit poncho and the second one I purchased was by Vince which is a cashmere blend. I believe she wears Helmut lang draped jackets! BCBG makes beautiful draped jackets for a fraction of the price of helmut Lang jackets! :)

  2. Amazing post, love it !!! can you please make outfit ideas for shorter people like anyone under 5'5 lol I'm 5 feet & sometimes its hard to find everything to look good especially when you don't have long legs hahah & maybe a post on some of your favourite stores to shop at :)

    1. I'm actually 5'2 and think these outfits work great on us shorties!! I'll definitely do a post on favorite stores I shop at soon :) also, thigh high boots and skinny jeans are great for elongating the legs!
