Today, after feeling a refreshing chill in the September air, I bailed my stylish boots out of boot jail in the back of my closet where they had served time this summer when it was too warm to wear them. Now I can’t wait to layer them with leggings and skinny jeans as the leaves change color.
Here is a list of the hot items this season that I can’t wait to break out in the cold weather:
Aspiring Socialite Tee: In case you haven’t heard or didn’t see it on the sidebar, I have just come out with a line of Aspiring Socialite Teesthat I can’t wait to pair with jeans and a matching cardigan this fall. They are available in women’s, men’s, and kids’. Yes, this is a shameless plug.
Knit Sweaters Crochet Style: When the temperature goes down, sweaters are always in style. But, this year I’ve been seeing a lot of lacy style sweaters. Cropped sweaters also seem to be coming back in.
Sweater Dresses: Are so much fun with a pair of cute boots. They are great for work or play.
Sequins and Shine: It isn’t just the holiday dresses that will be sparkling this season, sparkles are everywhere. Sequin blazers are going to be huge.
Lace Up Boots: Many women’s shoes are mirroring men’s shoe styles. Boots inspired by men’s work boots are a fall staple. I have a also been seeing a lot of western style boots again this fall season.
Missoni for Target Throw: I can’t think of anything better than curling up to your favorite show surrounded by a warm and stylish Missoni blanket.
Colored Jeans: By the end of this season, I guarantee that I will be the proud owner of a pair of purple jeans.
Plaid Shirts are Back: Break out your plaid button-ups again because this style is sticking around for another season.
NOOOOOOO!!! Today I stopped by the Missoni for Target pop-up store on 42nd St. and 6th Ave. that opened yesterday morning at 9 a.m. only to find that the entire inventory had long been SOLD OUT. Apparently 300 people completely ransacked the place within an hour of its opening leaving us with no affordable Missoni items until they are available online beginning Sept. 13th. The store was originally scheduled to be open until Sept. 10th.
As I turned around sadly, a nice worker there who discribed yesterday’s experience as “the scariest thing they had ever seen” gave me a complimentary Missoni for Target bag to take with me as a consolation prize. I’m so upset. I’ve been looking forward to this pop-up store for weeks now. I will be placing my order on the Target website as soon as it goes live. This collection is too good to pass up. I predict that it will also sell out quickly in stores as well as online so move fast if you like stripes.
If it’s wrong for socialites to like Target, I don’t want to be right. Their clothes are actually high quality and I have gotten some of my best (and cheapest) bathing suits there. So when Target releases a new designer line, it is always a happy day for me. What can I say? Sometimes all a girl needs is something cheap-chic. Pictures from the much anticipated Missoni For Target line have finally hit the web. This look book release came after Margherita Maccapani Missoni herself sent some sneak peaks over to Marina from the blog all the way here. According to The Budget Babe, Marina has been hired to model Target’s Missoni line.
Aside from the incredibly brightly colored textile knits that have become a signature of this line, Missoni for Target offers everything from children’s clothes, to luggage, dishes, menswear, and tons of useful accessories. It’s certainly beginning to look a lot like fall!
They really thought of everything. You can even get a bike to go with your outfit.
