Fall Fashion (And All Pretty Inexpensive!)

Steph asked me to write a post with Fall looks for a trip she was making to crisp, cool Colorado. Awesome. Exceppppppt for the fact that she’s already arrived in Colorado, and well, whoops. Sorry Steph. Better late than never!

So here’s a whole bunch of stuff I’ve been eyeing for Fall. Which, btw, has FINALLY arrived in So Cal. I’m so pumped yo. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that I get so many fashion ideas from girls out there blogging new Fall looks daily, many of them looks on the cheap – which I SO appreciate (that would be you, Miss Mary Powers and Andee Layne). So Imma return the favor for all of you! None of these are gonna break the bank terribly. Here we go:

First, MOTO JACKETS. I recently went to a party in a house in the Hills where every girl looked like they’d stepped off a trendy little fashion blog, and I kid you not, all were wearing black moto jackets. Wear with cute jeans or a maxi dress and voi-frickin’-la:

BOMBER JACKETS – Perfect for the newly cool weather around the country, before the biting winter cold arrives and slaps ya in the face:

A great MAXI DRESS to wear with either a moto jacket or a long nubby cardigan (see below) and knee high boots:

LOAFERS are a thing again this season and I’m personally a fan. They’re polished, classic, and professional (if that’s your steez), and if you get the right ones, they’re pretty comfy:

And boots? Ahhhh, well that’s gonna be a whole separate post – there are just so many good ones.

Let me know if there’s anything else you want me to find – I’m loving scouring the blogs/internet for you ladies!

Dear Santa, It’s Me Again (Karrie, That Is…)

…Aka Sheep, Aka K Dubz, aka the one who probably coulda volunteered a wee bit more throughout the year, could’ve been less snarky with Stephanie on our 2-hour-long cackle fests, could’ve gone to church a wee bit more (sorry Mom!).

But in the spirit of the Holidays, I know you’re a forgiving chap, Santa; that’s why I’ve put together a list of goodies in case you still want to hook a sister up this year!  Mmmkay, here goes:

1. A dump truck pulled up to my front door filled with Dry Bar gift certificates.

Let me put it this way.  When I enter a Dry Bar, which is a Heaven-sent blow dry bar specializing in blowing out your hair to a silky, smooth masterpiece, I enter looking like a prison wife, and exit looking and feeling like a dignified lady:

2. A gift certificate to a spa for a yummy massageMaybe one of my favorite all-time gifts, which unless they’re a masochist and hate massages, is a perfect gift for any loved ones of yours:

3. This one size fits all cute geometric sweater to wear during this friggin cold! LA winter season:

4. Or THIS Asos chunky rib cardigan. I lurve the snuggliness and bright pop o’ color:

5. This dainty Double Lotus Yellow Gold Necklace:

6. OR either of these statement pieces from Bauble Bar (my fave website for bold, fun necklaces!):

(Left: Tortoise Constellation Bib | Right: Double Tortoise Link Collar)

7. A bright new suitcase to replace mine which looks like a pack of wolves tore into it.  And it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg!  TJ Maxx has a TON of luggage right now for wicked cheap – just ask Giuliana Rancic who posted this on Instagram the other day:

8. This perfect, slouchy, well-traveled-looking pair of boots by my fave shoe designer Jeffrey Campbell:

9.  A membership to a Wine of the Month Club, cause I’m real fancy:

10. Not sure how long wedge sneakers are gonna remain “in”, but these Adidas Wedge High-Tops, below, to me, are just.friggin.cool:

11. Some cozy – but CUTE! – pajamas which won’t cause my husband to cringe a bit whenever I put them on, like what’s in my current rotation (see below).  Poor, poor guy:

12. And finally, the latest book from Wally Lamb.  Usually I’d be all recessionista and shiz and check it out at the library, but right now I’m #47 on the wait list!

Thank you Santy, you really are the BEST.
