Well, the weather is finally starting to cool down a bit now. You’d think I would be thrilled because that means fall styles are around the corner, but now, all of a sudden, I find myself clinging to summer. A few more 90 degree days won’t hurt anyone!
Nevertheless, this week’s lust list is all about fall and includes a few pairs of amazonian heels, lace and military-inspired trends and a dragon!
Let’s begin with this Temperley London tunic. This is probably my favorite piece out of everything listed here. I love the cutout shoulder and the way the intricate beading detail is incorporated into the design. It’s such a fun piece, and if it didn’t cost $1,250 I would buy it in a second. Alas, that is (quite) a bit out of my price range.
I love the silhouette of this Diane von Furstenberg navy pinstripe dress and the zipper down the back adds the perfect touch of unexpected character. Professional yet flirty.
Lace is a big trend for the fall. This Ports 1961 sheath would be perfect for work. The lining is a great autumn color, and the gorgeous lace overlay adds a nice touch of delicacy.
I love everything about this Diane von Furstenerg Pilton felted lace coat. It’s the perfect shape for someone curvy and the lace panels give it a fun and unique look. I would rock this all winter.
On the flip-side of delicate lace, this grey biker jacket offers a unique take on this fall’s military trend. Instead of the expected leather, Isabel Marant’s design is made of a wool-blend. Perfect for layering!
Moving on to footwear…. I admit I have a thing for Brian Atwood pumps. I love the embellishments he adds to his designs. These Harrison pumps are not only chain embellished, they are also braided! And mauve! Love.
These Christian Louboutin Bibi 140 suede pumps have a 5.5 inch heel with a 1 inch platform. So what if I am 5’7 – I love tall heels! These can be dressed up or down for the fall.
The unique shape of these Elizabeth and James Mason metallic pumps is what draws me to them. I like the way the platform is designed, and the lizard-embossed pewter color isn’t too bad either.
Finally, I’ve always wanted a dragon cuff. I love the way John Hardy incorporated some 18K gold into this design for the eyes… it really makes the dragon come alive.
How do you feel about autumn’s impending approach? Excited? Or are you still hanging on to those last moments of summer?
