I wore this last Thursday for Fashion Night Out. One of my girlfriends and I headed to Saks Fifth Avenue to get the scoop on some of the fall fashion must haves. I don't know why I tortured myself. I mean, I really can't afford anything from Saks expect MAC makeup, maybe a small coin purse and a pair of socks. It was still fun pretending that I was bringing home a pair of burgundy, t-strap Jimmy Choos or a $5,000 Gucci purse. Nothing spectacular went on at the store except for some Deep Eddy Vodka cocktails, mini cupcakes and a girl swinging on a suspended circle.
And oh, how could I forget about the gay Gucci guy. He was the highlight of the night. This boy worships Gucci, knows about every collection that has existed, even dating back to the Grace Kelly days. He told us about one of his clients that scored a Gucci bag at a resale store for $600 and then had it appraised. Guess what it's worth now? $11,000!!!! That's when he proceeded to tell us that Gucci is an investment and every woman should own one. Yes, I understand that sir, but every woman can't afford one, including this here girl. I mean, I am totally sold, but there wasn't going to be any cash exchanged that evening or anytime in the near future.
Anyway, enough about the Gucci guy. Some of the trends that were on repeat throughout the store were, in no particular order:
Exotic Prints (leopard, snake skin, fish skin)
Burgundy and Emerald Green (jewel tones in general)
Scarf Inspired Prints
Sequins and Sparkle
Menswear for Woman (think wing tipped shoes, fitted jackets and cigarette pants)
I am pretty set with most of these, but am lacking a few embellishments in my life. So, off I go. I am thinking a studded bag of sorts. Bags don't have to be taken to the dry cleaners, you know?
IMO, this season's trends are all pretty fabulous, except for the crazy, platform tennis shoes I keep seeing in so many magazine. I can say with 100% confidence, you ladies will NEVER see me in these.
Tell me, what fall trends are you leaning towards?
