"Fall Must Haves..."
I am certain most magazines had that phrase
on their cover back in September.
And since I am still reading People Style Watch September 2012 issue,
it was no surprise when I came across their fall must haves.
As I flipped through the pages, I realized that even though
there is no "fall season" where I live, I do have all the
fall must haves....
#1. Hunter Green
I have a vintage bag and a vintage pair of shoes in this color !
Also have a jade ring, earring and bracelet set.
#2. Ankle-Strap Heels
I tried this style as you can see, by wearing a pair of black Chinese Laundry ankle strap heels that were a hand-me-down from mom. However the strap cut me is the worst way possible, making me look even shorter.
So, it was a style I experimented with and decided did not work for me.
#3 Military Details are also in my closet.
Got a skirt and a vest with the round brass like buttons.
Also a few jackets, I was quite surprised.
#4 Trumpet hems I have a brown suit that has a trumpet skirt hem.
I am not a big fan but it's in the closet.
#5. Dome bags I have a problems with bags. I have too many of them and storing them has become an issue.
Few weeks back I rediscovered a"doctor bag" or a dome bag that had not been used in years, so yes, I do have the dome bag too and it's currently in use!
#6. Brocade is a fabric I have always loved, so it was no surprise
to know I also have brocade, as you can see here is a jacket and also a dress.
The funny thing is, I never wear them, or at least not frequently.
#7. Jeweled Necklaces are not that easy to go by where I live.
So, whenever I travel I try to grab them, if I find them, which is how
the ones I have got to my jewelry drawer.
#8. Shift Dresses as I have grown older I have begun appreciating
dresses and have more of them in my closet.
#9. Voluminous Coats I just have 1 or 2 coats as
I only use them when I travel to cooler climates. I do have
a voluminous coat too, it's H&M from a few years ago.
#10. Patent Leather got shoes and got a dress.
A dress that I paid very little for and that feels like a million bucks
when I wear it.
And that's it.
How about you ?
Do you shop your closet for must haves or
head directly to the stores ?
