So, I know we're in the heat of Summer and it's hard to imagine Fall weather anytime soon...but now is the best time for me to let you in on what I think will be BIG for Fall! I'm going to start doing precisely that, giving you weekly tips on items you should start stocking into your wardrobe so it's Fall-ready in no time!
The Fall 2008 Ready to Wear Runway Collections were literally overflowing with black lace. It's one of those fabrics that is actually hard to pull off because you don't want to look like a character from the Addams Family. But it also looks amazing layered over colors and it's easy to wear all alone...with some GILDED accessory additions, of course. I'm loving the use of soft touches of lace like Nicole Miller exemplified in the form of tights. Also, the gorgeous blouses at Derercuny and Givenchy really caught my eye!
A few days ago, we provided some pointers for what to buy for Fall at Shopbop's 70% Sale. We mentioned items like dreary plaids, lace-up boots and subdued florals (find it HERE). So we're working hard to always keep you in the know!
Today, I've provided some speedy-savvy-stylin' below that is all under $50. That's not a big hit on the checkbook, by any means so it should be easy to invest now! My fave pieces from all these Black Laced goodies? I must admit I have a shirt very similar to the Floral Lace Top by Forever 21 and it looks truly ravishing in pictures...love it! I think the Steve Madden Flats are adorable and the Mixed Media Slip Dress from Urban Outfitters is something that will transition easily from Summer to Fall! Enjoy!
