It’s nearing Valentine’s day, so she opted to wear her red Diane Von Ferstenburg dress to bask in the mood of the approaching holiday, although Paris is always in the mood. She clasps her gold Michael Kors chain link watch and throws on a dainty long gold necklace. She walks to her vanity to put on a little bit of make-up…easy on the eyeliner and light on the blush since she decided to wear a bold red lip with her ensemble. She then throws her hair up in a messy sort of coif and secures it with a few bobby pins. She springs out of her chair to find the black leather ankle strap heels from her rather disoriented closet, all the while her cat Georgie is following her every move, trying to get her attention. Noticing Georgie while grabbing her shoes, she says “Bien, Georgie” and wanders into the kitchen to find the hungry little feline a snack. Georgie seems pleased with the whitefish scraps leftover from last night’s dinner.
Finally, she’s ready to head to the farmer’s market to pick up some fresh flowers and produce before she meets her beau for an exciting date at a wonderful new restaurant they’ve been aching to try. She grabs her vintage mink coat, and black leather tote-it’s still pretty chilly in February, and a tote is a good size to hold the flowers and produce, plus whatever else catches her fancy at the farmer’s market on this brisk February day in the city of lights.

Fall is indeed my favorite fashion season. Don’t get me wrong, Spring and Summer also have their fair share of cute clothes…but I’m a layering kinda girl. I like my layers. Plus, I’m a serious freeze baby. As I’ve said before, jackets are probably (one of) my favorite ‘fashion things’ about fall. Really, sometimes all you need is a good jacket. Great fit, great look- great style. Which also includes those classics–like a black leather (or faux leather, whichever your preference) jacket.
Mine’s a moto jacket with an asymetrical zip that I found from Victoria’s Secret. I find that they’re best if you want to wear it as an outerwear jacket, or as just a jacket that gives off the same effect as a blazer.
