FIRST. OMG. I had SO much fun reading through all of the responses I got to my “Getting to Know You” post. Y’all are hilarious and at the same time so thoughtful and deliberate about your fashion choices — really loved “meeting” you and hearing all about your style predilections. (One surprising thing? Almost everyone prefers to shop solo or online — guess that the trope of the galpal shopping date is more fiction than fact.) At any rate, I had to pick Micaela L.’s post for three reasons: a) When asked what one item she would rescue from her burning home, she said “a basket that has most of my purses in it” — I like the way she thinks; b) she wants to own leather pants, which, as I mentioned yesterday, have been a long-term goal of mine; and c) this sentence: “I’m not going to say I wore bebe shirts, but baby tees didn’t really work for anyone.” Micaela, send me your mailing addy so I can mail you a Magpie Treat!
And now: fall finds. My sister is probably as big of a shopaholic as I am (maybe bigger?), and she recently texted me: “Hate everything I own. I need to get a new fall wardrobe immediately. Please send me a couple thousand dollars for shopping. Thanks, bye.” I feel her pain — I’m so ready to snap up everything fall-oriented around me that things could quickly spin wildly out of control. But while there are a few investment pieces I’m saving up for this fall (this and this and this, to name a few), there are lots of cute and affordable pieces I’ll be snapping up to spruce things up in the short term — and I’m dedicating this post those fall finds. Yes, that’s right, ladies. Everything in this post is under $150, and most ring in under $100! I don’t know how I did it. (Well, there’s one exception — a pair of Tory Burch bootskis. Forgive me.)
PSST. You can get an even cheaper version of the dress above through the Kirna Zabete for Target capsule collection here ($45). Or how about paired with this mixed-fabric bag ($49) and these cap-toed tootsies ($149)?
Or, how about this leather tipped poncho ($148 — plus 30% off now with code 30FALL):
Love it with a pair of black skinnies and some punchy flats (these get the same look at those Valentino rockstud shoes everyone dies over — but for $49!):
Or, how about this yummy sweater dress (on sale for $78), which you can pair with a statement necklace ($147) and your favorite sets of boots (OK, these are not budget-friendly, but I heart them — $525):
Don’t you love?! Hope y’all are having a great week! xxx
