Fall Furs

Most important rule to wearing fur: keep it faux!

Not ready to flaunt a full-fledged faux-fur? Take it in small doses, like the trim around the hood of the lovely orange coat by Delia's.

I've always been a little afraid to wear faux fur (have this fear of activists throwing things at me while screaming 'animal killer' without giving me time to explain that it's fake), but nevertheless, I love the look. It works perfectly in any texture-driven outfit.

Take a chance by pairing it with another fun look for fall--instead of storing your chunky platform sandals, wear them long into autumn over socks or tights. Layering different textures and colors is what fall fashion is alllllllll about.

Fun With Fall

Jewel tones, intense platforms, thick furs and deep neutrals--with all the seriousness of this year's fall trends, I am all for some excitement!

The air in Minneapolis now has a crisp autumn feel--I totally bundled up this morning in a huge cozy shawl. Color stories may vary by season, but it's always fun to add unexpected accents here and there.

Any of these would perfectly complement the fall staple piece: a gorgeous cape

I was totally in love with this trend for fall 2010, but never found my perfect one.

I am so inspired by clean lines, statement neutrals, and the perfect flare. These two literally fit all of my style requirements. What's on your must-have list this fall?

Berry Tones

One trend I am totally getting into this fall is berry tones. Whenever I go shopping (not often lately, wah budget) I always talk myself out of buying something that doesn't fit in with my recent go-to color palette.

Whether you're into blueberries, raspberries, marionberries, huckleberries, strawberries...there is a shade out there for you!

I love the variety of tones that can be found in this trend. Each color is so rich--they look amazing piled on top of each other or as a feature among neutrals.

Dare I say I want to see how this trend plays out? I'm already envisioning berry blouses paired with floaty, light floral skirts for spring... ;)
