everything about these outfits is spot on.  



true religion

i swear this topic is not spawn from my true blood obsession-- but the cross has made it's way into the current trend.  too keep this look rooted in fashion-- and not an open confession of your most deep-seated sins-- pair with black with pops of white and gray.

a.d.o.r.e.  the pintucking, the pleating, the platforms and socks!  alas... it's here. 



tan is the new black

i've been seeing varying degrees of tan for fall.  to make it work, keep the outfit neutral-- no pops of color.   try a tan trench over a soft creme dress.  pull together a light tan sweater with a dark khaki skirt.  complete with a black leather bag and [of course] soft brown or tan slides or heels.  here is some inspiration to get you started:

distressing blues

by far the best way i have seen distressed denim worked for fall: with velour heels.  j'dore.

gone fishing

inspired by the wading-ready fall collections by miu miu, burberry and [my favorite] prada-- fashion and fishing come together in this spread for vogue china



and if the prada waders are too much for your personal taste, you can never go wrong with a good pair of hunters.

only cowgirls get the blues.

unless your wendy nichols.  then i bet life is pretty good.  her new fall jewelry collection has been received quite well in the fashion world and is inspired by the west.  not the california-surf-or-die west.  the billy-the-kid-this-is-how-the-west-was-won kind of west.
