Great Fall coats under $120
This Fall is all about the sleek coat, and these options are as stylish as they are affordable. I love how easily these can add instant style to any outfit— from your everyday jeans and flats, to that little black dress. Here are three options to get you going for the colder days ahead.
A little rock n’ roll: [Faux] leather and contrast sleeves were all over Fall fashion runways. I’m a bit partial to this sophisticated take on the usual grey wool coat. 
Vintage and ladylike: Go Old Hollywood or go home. This shade of brown goes with everything— black, navy, grey, red— especially red, and the fur collar hints at the glamour of the 1950s and 60s. 
A timeless classic: This just screams Jackie O on Thanksgiving in Cape Cod. A coat this simple is like a blank canvas. Add a brooch, belt, or printed scarf to make it your own. 
Best part? Sign up for the Dorothy Perkins newsletter and you get 15% off your first order AND all orders over $75 receive free shipping. That is what I call a deal.

How to Shop Your Closet

      

About this time every year, I get really bored of my clothes. I’ve been reaching for the same tops & dresses since May, and I need to refresh my closet. I would rather spend on Fall staples, so I need to “make do” with what I have. Do any of you have this problem? 

Here is what to do. Set aside a few hours on the weekend for a closet revamping. Do the laundry, make your bed, and get ready to reorganize.

If Money Was No Object

      
Today marks one month to Fashion Week, one month until I move back to my beloved NYC, and one month closer to the cooler weather. Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love it for its breezy, chilled mornings/ evenings, and sunny daytime hours. I love it for the sense of starting anew— back to school, back to work, back to a routine. And, I love it for the fashion— layers, cozy fabrics, boots, and makeup that won’t sweat off!

See what I love about these pieces and how I would incorporate them into my wardrobe, if money was no object.

7 Things I Want Right Now [in black and gold].
Smythson leather notebook —I still make lists the old-fashioned way, so why not jot down notes in this sleek beauty? And, “New York, London, Milan, Paris” is a playful nod to fashion week.
Aubin & Willis sequin tuxedo jacket —The sequin trend isn’t going anywhere (like I said on Instagram) and this tuxedo jacket is no exception. I would wear it with jeans and heels for an evening out, or over a little black dress for a party. 
Forever 21 Zipper Tote — I’m on the hunt for a slim, black, minimalist tote. This one looks expensive, but it’s only $33! That’s my kind of deal. 
La Mer Collections studded wrap watch — Adds a little rock’n’roll to your outfit, without looking costume-y or over the top. 
Forever 21 Stackable enamel rings — I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect stack of rings in gold and this price is hard to beat. 
Forever 21 Art deco chain earrings — Art deco jewelry is my absolute favorite. These earrings make me want to wear a hair piece and sip a cocktail in an English library. 
Michael Kors chunky chain bracelet — This timeless chain link gold bracelet is one of those pieces that will be a signature on my wrist, whether in 2012 or 2032.
