Party Season: Fall Fashions

I’m not sure how we’re already in October, but we are! And that means the party season is soon upon us – Halloween parties, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year parties (and somewhere in the middle a birthday party, for me)!

This season I’m loving earthy, muted colours but also pops of colour with patterns that fade into block colour. I think the latter is one of my favourite current fashion trends. šŸ™‚

I haven’t bought any “party” clothes for a while, but Modcloth has added some great dresses to their Fall/Winter section, soĀ here areĀ a few of my favourites. (I foresee a lot of green in my wardrobe!)

You Can Fete On It Dress: I love the colours in this dress! It would be great to wear in the day with flats, or in the eveningĀ you could pair it withĀ heels and jewelry. I think this will work well during the Spring too.

Exquisite Elegance Dress: The gorgeous muted, mossy green of this dress is so delicate it works perfectly with the lace! I love the off-the-shoulder style too – it’s a really great dress. I’d wear it with pearls to keep the vintage look.

Nostalgically Nuanced Dress: I love the button detail at the neckline, and the sleeves, and eveything about it really! This is something I know I’d wear a lot…but it’s out of stock. I’m keeping my fingers crossed they’ll get it back in stock soon.

So those are my top three picks from the Modcloth Fall/Winter collection. What styles are you looking forward to this season? Have you found any great fall fashion bargains?

Fashion Friday #1

This is my first Fashion Friday post – how exciting! What is Fashion Friday? Well…I’m not totally sure yet, so the name might change as the content does. I’m hoping to talk about thingsĀ I’ve bought, bargains I’ve found, or fashions I’ve seen online that make me go “oooo!”

I love Autumn: the turning leaves (which we don’t get in Florida), the crackling fires (which we don’t need in Florida), and the cuddly-warm fashions (which we also don’t need in Florida, but I’m having at least one of these things dammit!) So I got really excited when I found a few great Autumn-fashion bargains.

Payless recently had a sale, and IĀ also had a 30% off coupon. So I couldn’t resist buying these beauties:

The boots were originally $49.99 and I got them for $21 – they’re so comfortable and I love them! The flats (how wonderful is that green?!) were originally $24.99 and I got them for $7! Happy Autumn, feet.

This gorgeous dress from Earthbound (originally $34.95) was in the sale for $14:

The photo doesn’t do it justice – it’s a luscious, deep red heavy fabric so it hangs really nicely. Also, I’m really tall and got way too excited that this was the perfect length for my height. And the perfect price.

Not a bad haul for $42. I think teaming the dress and boots together will be one of the outfits I wear over Christmas, maybe even New Year with some sparkly jewelry.

Have you found any great fashion bargains? I’d love to hear about them!
