Crave: Polka Polka Dots Please

I was not thinking of polka dots this season until I was perusing Piperlime.com. Under Presents for Her, I zoned in a perfect little party dress from a designer that I have always love: BCBGeneration. And then what do you know: I was seeing polka dots everywhere. From LC Lauren Conrad, Urbanoutfitters, asos.com and zara.com.

Here are some wishlist items for Christmas (My husband is going to go ballastic over this year’s credit card bills):

Classic Fall Trends


Every Fall, you see similar trends. I believe you can’t go wrong with these classic basics in your wardrobe.

1. Metallics
Great for upping the GLAM factor of your outfit. Use metallics to dress up a work outfit into a date outfit. The shiny sparkles makes any outfit more festive that’s great for Fall and the Holidays.

2. Furry Fur
Want to keep warm and be stylish at the same time? Add Fur.

3. Camel Colored Coat
Classy in Camel. Any particular camel outerwear pulls together a winter outfit. Even in heels or sneakers, just putting on a camel coat gives that classy, pulled together look. I would wear this coat everywhere.

4. Geometrical
Zigzags, geometrical patterns have made their way back into style. Just by looking at these patterns gives the outfit an edge, a different feeling compared to wearing a plain shirt. I have been noticing more and more geometrical designs.

5. Distinctive Pop of Color
Winter is not just snowy creams and browns anymore. Bring out the fluorescent oranges, yellows, electric blues and magenta. Spice up your outfit with bright pants, or that neon pink bag you have been eying.

A Sweater Makes the Outfit

Today, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Houston finally got COOLER! Normally it is around 90 degrees outside but today’s High is only 73. Outside is slightly chilly and breezy. “It’s beginning to look a lot like” … Autumn!

So I pulled out a sweater I bought during my August trip to “No SALES TAX Under $100” New Jersey. It is from Armani Exchange. I love the detail of it. It is gray cotton with a black mesh that’s striped and dashed pattern. The broken up pattern contours to my waist and it’s a light sweater perfect for this season. I love to just throw on a good top with a standard basic bottom. A good sweater makes the outfit.

Do you think I can wear this outfit on a Date Night (just add jewelry), to work (add heels), and to a PTO Meeting?
