fall(ing) in love again

all i do is think about fall clothes now. fall must have list, written, and re-written, and re-written, fall binder, done. now all i have to do is buy everything. hahaha, oh how i long for an unlimited budget. all i want to do is shop. i couldn't sleep for four nights in a row because all i could do was think about clothes. sick. my coworker/intern katie and i are starting a milwaukee branch of shopper's anonymous. let me know if you want to join. anyway, saturday was a great shopping day. had an alterra chai for breakfast and followed it up with the sidewalk sale in the third ward and fred. met up with fellow shopaholics and hit up the sales. unbelievably enough, i stuck to my fall list. scored an awesome top by the brand rojas at flaire and my new favorite fall piece, my looser fitting white button down from stephanie horne. i've always been obsessed with finding the perfect white button down, and now, mission accomplished. this is the rojas top, but i plan on styling it with jeans and a longer tank for fall. although a high waisted skirt would complement this top. white button downs look awesome looser fitting, over leggings (not my fave), skinny jeans, or over a sequin skirt. another fall must have:
i love that last look with those tie dye jeans i'm dying for. the look does work with sequin skirts too. sequins have never been my thing, but i really like the idea of a super flashy sequin skirt with a men's style button down, leggings and ankle boots for fall. i'll give it a shot.
i'm happy to see that my key piece of last fall/winter is still huge this season: the boyfriend blazer. i'll wear it over a drapey tee and the sequin skirt, or over pretty much anything again. that bf blazer of mine got a workout last fall/winter/spring and it's totally getting a workout again. i love it. i should probably find a couple more to alternate. i love the elizabeth and james version, but too pricey for me. i'll find something.

i'm at that point now where it's the hottest it has been outside, and i hate getting dressed. all i want to do is wear my new button down, my new mm couture moto style jacket (that i scored at lela today..oops, just went to drop off consignment, left with a fall gem), my olivia foldover boots, sweaters...ah, i can't wait. i'm sick of spaghetti strap dresses and my beat to hell flat jeffrey campbell sandals. gross. i'm even day/night dreaming about my new fall haircolor. i do love the new season. time for change. i ordered up my new fall nail polishes and even the thought of that makes me want to squeal. i love fall fashion. project runway starts again, new rachel zoe...i feel like i'm on a fashion high. our fred fashion show is (mark your calendars): september 24th on the rooftop of the hotel metro...inquire about modeling and/or tickets at fred...lela's fall fashion show is september 12th. i'm just stoked. i love this time of year.

i saw a bag similar to this one...which i can't stop drooling over...it's half a g, really, who do i think i am? can i honestly even think about this bag anymore? how can i afford it? what can i do to obtain this one?

distressed leather/brownish black in color/rocker studs...come on now. this needs to be on my person come september. just amazing.

well, our buyer is in LA now scoring some of the coolest fall merch for fred, so stop in soon. don't forget about ladies night next thursday from 5-10. sorry there's no knock it off today, but look for one soon. i'm waiting to knock off fall stuff. no more summer stuff. all i want to focus on is fall.
