This list, from Nordstrom, is presented as pieces crucial to a woman’s fall wardrobe.
|Vera Wang Footwear 'Marilyn' Boot - $395.00|
TOUGH BOOTS – I already have several pairs of boots. I believe they are tough enough for me. I shall wear them, love them and save myself quite a bit of money. After all, how many boots does one really need?
|Vince Colorblock Blanket Sweater - $395.00|
THE THROW-ON SWEATER – A sweater, yes! And the several ones I have are very nice; prettier (IMO) than those I've seen in stores this year.
|Yves Saint Laurent 'Rouge Pur Couture' Lip Color - $32.00|
RED LIPS – Check. Got that covered! I have lots of red lipsticks.
|Ted Baker London 'Mardun' Satchel - $235.00|
A COLOR-POP BAG – Check. I have a red one which I use from time to time during fall and winter. Had I disposed of it when I downsized my handbags, I'd just do without a color bag!
|Rachel Roy Double Face Stretch Sheath Dress - $378.00|
THE SHEATH DRESS – Check. A black sheath is is my standard go-to dress. If I needed to buy something new, I'd just knit myself a shawl (which I plan to do) to throw over my shoulders to dress it up.
|rag and bone 'Baily' Stripe Jacket - $595.00|
A STATEMENT JACKET – Hmm. How about a statement cardigan? Been there, done that with jackets. A lifestyle change has caused me to be partial to long bulky cardigans.
|Trina Turk 'Rialto' Wide Leg Pants - $248.00|
PRINTED PANTS – No and no. Not under any circumstances. Who are they kidding?
|Tasha Crystal Brooch - $68.00|
VINTAGE-INSPIRED BROOCHES – I don't own one of those really large eye-popping brooches. But I got around that last winter by grouping together three or four medium-sized ones. A very interesting look.
THE NEW PUMP – Being defined as mary-jane straps, metallic toes and soft suedes flowing into chunky heels. Should I even be slightly tempted I'd just remember they will be so yesterday very soon!
Mackage Mixed Media Moto Jacket - $680
THE LEATHER MIX - Leather on a collar or sleeves, or mixing leather garments with cozy fall textures. No. But I do have a black leather jacket.
So, do you see anything on this list that will cause you to join the hordes that will buy just to have the latest in-thing? What else, if anything, are you planning to purchase for fall?
