I've really been trying very hard not to do this now but it's consumed me. Fall has taken me into it's embrace and won't let me go.Many bloggers have been posting their wishlists, inspiration boards and fall purchases and I have done so as well. I didn't want to do this so early on in August but the truth is this time of year, every year I get the same way, wishing fall's arrival. However I really don't want to let summer go, just yet. It seems to have just so much as stayed for five minutes and made his departure before we could even hang out. It means that winter with all its might will be just around the corner.And I am so not ready for that.
Anyway looking at the general mood of this inspiration board, I realized that subconsciously I put together a board that has a main theme. Which would be delicate florals and dresses and heavy knits. I guess I have been gravitating a lot to a more feminine and ethereal look. I'm not sure why?
For fall I'm really into beige and gray knits, light florals,peter pan collars, pussybow ties,70's and edwardian dresses and a huge need for pink chiffon(especially after the death of my pastel lavender dress). Also a generous offer from my boyfriend sent me on a massive hunt for chloe silverado shoes. I have come to terms with the fact that they will never make it to me,until the aforementioned hunt.Now I want them more than ever!!! If anyone knows anywhere/anybody selling the brown Chloe Silverado shoes from A/W 2006 in a size 7.5 or 8 US please let me know. It would make me a really really happy girl.
Editor's note: I checked Ebay....a lot!!!!

A while back I made a visit to my local thrift store to see what new stuff they've received and I found some of the cutest dresses. Above are the prints of the dresses I've purchased.There was another dress that I had a hard time leaving at the store because it was the perfect combination of beige(which I actually came in looking for) and tribal. But I really loved the ones I picked and figured 3 dresses were enough.
Below are photos taken by a bestie, while strolling in the park. Always the bag lady, I am!!!
This dress is the perfect item to just throw on when it's too hot and you don't feel like thinking about what to wear.Plus it has that 90's tribal vibe, which is what drew me to it in the first place.
