As I continue to scour stores for fall fashion trends, this month I am bringing you a mix of fringe, fragrance and fun finds available locally and online.
My first pick is Alaïa Paris Eau de Parfum, the first fragrance by Alaïa. If you’ve read any fall issue, you will know that this perfume is a HOT ITEM! I am always looking for a versatile perfume that can be worn day and night, and most importantly a perfume that lasts. Trust me when I tell you that this perfume lasts and smells amazing. This fragrance is currently exclusive to Saks and is available at Saks Fifth Avenue at Town Center. You can also find it on Lilly List.
They say you can take the girl out of the Northeast, but you can’t take the Northeast out of the girl. That saying totally applies to me when it comes to fall fashion—especially with sweaters and boots. I love Vince clothing, and was ecstatic when the brand started designing shoes. I was browsing Bloomingdale’s when I spotted these Vince Ellen high heel booties, which are perfect for fall in Florida and can be paired with tights, skirts and culottes. These booties are exclusive to Bloomingdale’s and are included in the friends & family sale going on now through Oct. 4. Check them out at Bloomingdale’s at Town Center. You can also find them on Lilly List.
I stopped at Bella Boutique (The Shops at Boca Center, 5050 Town Center Circle #230) on my way home from a meeting. Bella Boutique has an Intermix feel with great prices. Since this season is all about fringe, ponchos and fabulous earrings, my first picks are two skirts, a midi-military inspired skirt and a fringe mini-skirt. The styles play to opposite spectrums, but I couldn’t resist sharing the finds. I then spotted the poncho with sleeves! I often feel so awkward when I wear ponchos, but I love the fact that this is a cozy, poncho-style sweater (obviously channeling my inner Northeast.) Finally, I found earrings that resemble the classic Dior pearl style earrings (which are totally in), but they’re shaped like spikes. I selected this pair because I loved the black and white, and I styled them with the fall poncho.
As I mentioned, fringe is IN! As I was leaving Bella Boutique, I walked by Chico’s and spotted a faux-suede fringe jacket. This jacket gives the chic, fall look without having to sport heavy, hot suede. Check it out at Chico’s at The Shops at Boca Center or online at Lilly List.
