My Five Fall Fashion Obsessions
Madewell Washed Leather Motorcycle Jacket, $498 (sobs)
It’s fall, NYFW is over, and it’s time for us to lust over some clothes that we can’t afford but will try to find at TJ Maxx. Or maybe even Marshall’s. Who KNOWS, maybe we’ll even find the perfect piece in the sale section at Ross. I have hope.
You know when you see an item of clothing that is just so perfect – so DELIGHTFUL – that you don’t even put it on because you can’t afford it? Yeah, that was me with this Madewell Washed Leather Motorcycle Jacket. I put together outfits based on this jacket that I’ve never even tried on. At $498, it’s a great thing to be obsessed with because you’ll never buy it. Or at least I won’t, but I’ll think about it every day and look at it every time I go to Madewell, and probably just cry a silent tear that it isn’t in my closet. THIS JACKET IS EVERYTHING.
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick, $20 (Echo shown here)
I’m notoriously obsessed with these Kat Von D liquid lipsticks because they can survive a damn hurricane. I once ate a plate of ribs and a burger to see how much the lipstick came off – you can see the lord’s work here. I can’t get enough of this liquid lipstick, and I figured a dark blue could be a fun, goth kid look. It survived a Purity Ring concert and Thai food. This is probably the only product that I wish I had in every single shade.
Every single thing about this Kate Spade video
Gloria Steinem! Anna Kendrick! Girl power! A cute gnome purse! THOSE INSANE EARMUFFS. Despite my pestering the Kate Spade Facebook page about where I can get those ear muffs (they unfortunately are not the ones from their website), I love everything about this video. It’s quirky, it’s funny, it’s beautifully styled. I saw one Facebook commenter said they wouldn’t buy anything KS because Gloria Steinem was in the video, which I think means we all need to buy more.
Chanel Fall 2015 Slingback, $800
I’m pretty sure my grandma owned a version of these shoes from the 1960s, but regardless, these things give me major nostalgia. They’re classy without being boring, and sassy without looking like they’re from Nasty Gal. Again, I know I can’t afford these shoes, and I know I’ll likely never wear Chanel shoes ($800 is a round-trip ticket to Europe, c’mon now). But, damn, these would look good with a flowy A-line skirt and a structured top.
While I can’t find the Nike Air Max 90 Hyper Pink sneakers above for purchase (they were a Pinterest find), I suddenly feel like hot pink sneakers are my destiny. It is possible to create a similar shoe on the website with the CustomID function – those will run you around $170.
