Red, Red Wine

Instead of wearing the color in your dress and shoes while keeping your tights nude, try inverting the colors!  It's always fun to go for that shock effect and wear the unexpected.  I found this lovely dress and decided to build an entire outfit around it.  This rich wine color is a wonderful choice for fall, but navy or dark green would also be stunning.  It's very easy to take this concept and run with it, so be bold and make it your own!

How to shop for fall

With jeans, coats and boots to purchase, you can quickly put a dent in your bank account.  Instead of racking up credit card debt and a closet full of mediocre fashion, have a plan before pulling out the plastic. Rather than needing a new wardrobe every time it drops below 70, BUY CLOTHES THAT WILL LAST! Don't feel guilty spending a little more money on something that will stand the test of time.  Spending $100 on a well-made coat makes more sense than buying 3 cheap ones that will last you a wear or two and never quite fit right.   The same goes for boots and jeans.  From experience, shelling out an extra $50 initially could save you hundreds in the future.  If you can acquire a bit of patience and save your money for the right finds,  it will pay off. (Figuratively and literally!) Here are a few timeless, sturdy items that won't let you down over the years:

Comfy Casual

Just because it's "Casual Friday" doesn't mean you have to dress down so much that you're unrecognizable to your coworkers.  Instead, blow them away in an ensemble they'll think you spent hours on.  Be effortlessly chic (and comfortable) in this knit maxi dress and playful fringe necklace.  Polish off the look with a boxy boyfriend blazer and some flats or boots.

As some of you know, I work at a fabulous store known as fab'rik.  It is a very affordable women's boutique that sells the latest trends in clothing, shoes, jewelry and bags.  I absolutely love the fact that we only get 6 of every style in ensuring that you won't awkwardly run into someone wearing the same outfit.  We have a TON of new fall clothes in and get shipments every week! This is one of my favorite looks right now:
