My Shopping List

This week I went a little crazy and used my plastic a bit more than I should have. Nonetheless, I love the clothes I bought and would do it all again. Here's a low down of what I bought.

I LOVE the jean leggings Gap has right now. They're so soft and stretchy, I just know I'll be in them all winter. The black are extra sleek and very black.

I love the hem on this shirt, the shirttail style is so flattering and comfy. The button detail on the sleeves is great too, as is the exposed zipper at the back on the shirt. Gap really sells the best t-shirts around.

Gap's Forever Skinny jeans are really flattering and really skinny and this lighter wash is a great way to break all the dark pieces you'll be wearing this fall. I'm going to pair mine with white t-shirts and burnt orange and deep purples scarves.

This stripped TNA raglan is so nautical and fun to wear with shorts or skinnies, you can dress it up or down!

This studded Talula skirt from Aritzia is the perfect mix of sexy and sleek. I wore it the other night with the white t-shirt from Gap listed above.

Fall Fashion

I'm starting to crave wearing leggings, boots and parkas, 'tis surely a sign of the changing seasons. I bought my first boots for the upcoming fall last week, brown suede ankle boots with side bows and a chunky heel. I'm debating how exactly I'll wear them though... I was thinking of easing myself into the fall wearing them with a white dress and a brown belt. My next purchases will be the new black jean leggings at the Gap which are so soft and lots of over sized white and grey tunic t-shirts to wear with the jeggings and boots. I think I want to try wearing over sized knit scarves this fall with skinny jeans in muted purples and burnt oranges and I want to knit them myself! I'm getting ahead of myself though as I need my mother to teach me how to knit since I forgot all of five minutes after she taught me last time.

Any other ideas for this fall fashion lovers?

Sufjan Stevens is Coming to Town

Sufjan is coming! Massey Hall, October 13th. I've been waiting a long time for this. If I don't get tickets the world will come to an end. This isn't really a fashion post but I just wanted to shout this from a roof top but I don't have one... just a fashion blog.

If you have some time on your hands or a hankering for wonderful music, download his album Illinois or just listen to the multiple versions of the cult classic Chicago. I like the multiple-personality disorder one best.
