It’s that time of year again! The kiddies are going back to school, the leaves are turning colors (if you aren’t in LA that is) and there is a slight chill in the air. Don’t you love it? The best part, for me at least, is the fashion! Because fall fashion trumps spring fashion any day.
I love this time of year because it always makes me nostalgic for the finer things in life; plaid, leather and gold. I mean if you’re not covered in luxury what’s the point? I personally only go for luxury for less. With the amazing sales that go on year round, there is no reason to pay full price. If you know me, then you know that my specialty is finding the chicest styles for the sickest prices. So what does that mean? It means you can trust me to deliver the goods!
1. Chloé Gold-tone and leather bangle // Original price $570, Now $285
You can’t go wrong with leather and gold. Always stylish, always chic and of course, always luxe. Can’t you imagine yourself walking down Rodeo Drive with this sick bracelet? You’d fit in perfectly with all of the “beautiful people” … “Oh this? This is just my leather and gold Chloé bracelet.” Uh-huh!
2. Alaïa Studded leather ankle boots // Original price $2,380, Now $1,071
Did someone say boots? Fall isn’t fall without a new pair of boots. These studded leather ankle boots in particular are making my heart race a little bit. Alaia does that to a girl.
3. McQ Alexander McQueen Tartan laptop case // Original Price $170, Now $59.99
Hello back to school! I don’t know about you, but the first day of school for me was always about the clothes. This super cute tartan plaid laptop case really takes back-to-school fashion to the next level. All of a sudden I’m feeling really studious. So studious that I just purchased this laptop case. Done and done.
4. Nixon Cougar Raw gold-plated stainless steel watch // Original price $160, Now $98
What I love about this piece is that it is fashionable and functional. Think about it, if you had this beautiful gold and black timepiece, you’d would never be late (that is what I called retail rationalization). It’s ultra modern and super chic. Admit it, you probably need this watch. See how that works?
5. Alexander Wang Prisma calf hair and leather tote // Original price $1,150, Now $690
Yes, please and thank you. As I’ve mentioned animal print never goes out of style. And this awesome bag is the perfect example of classic animal print that can go with you everywhere. This bag is a perfect work/life bag. Big enough to fit your laptop, but chic enough to take out on the town.
