I’ve never been a lover of Spring/Summer fashion, so now that it’s the start of September I’m immediately whipping out the Fall merchandise. There’s just SO many options you have in the Fall/Winter with coats, stockings, hats, gloves, scarfs, etc. that you don’t get in the Summer. Also – it allows me to go back to my usual color scheme of black, black and more black with a touch of Earth tones.
I don’t know if anyone else notices this, but the change in seasons also brings a change in attitude for most women. In the Spring and Summer, there seems to be a breath of fresh air and we get in touch with our feminine side by being flirty and bubbly. As soon as the cool breeze sets in, we immediately dress in head-to-toe black, throw deep burgundy on our lips and nails, and start posing with the Kardashian smirk in photos. Am I right?! I definitely do this.
Nothing is wrong with dressing and acting like a boss. So now that Fall is upon us, my style is going to be screaming “I’m the boss, applesauce”! I know we all remember when Balmain partnered with H&M last year, or at least I do since I stood in line for 2 hours #neverforget. It was worth the wait! The top I’m wearing was one of the pieces I scored from the collection, which I fell in love with due to the oversized shoulder-pads. I also bought the matching velvet pants, which I will pair together with heels for a dressier look. A TON of people have been asking me where my glasses are from… They’re by Illesteva and I’ve included them in the looks I’ve pulled below. Sadly the H&M x Balmain collection is sold out (unless you scour the internet for consignment), so I’ve pulled some other pieces with dramatic shoulder-pads I was super into.
