 What is on your fall fashion shopping list?

  1 2 3 4 5   
It was cool in Calgary today and I got the itch to start shopping for fall. Hunter and I spent the day at checking out the shops and I found a few things, but I get so overwhelmed with all the pretty things and can't decide what to purchase.

I did get a few things. I bought a navy blazer at Mexx, that now at home looks less awesome than it did in the store - ARGH! and two pairs of shoes at Nine West ( nude pumps to channel Kate Middleton, my new style icon tongueold & brown peep toe wedges)

Here are a few things I want to work into the budget:

Talula Exeter Schoolboy Blazer (charcoal or light gray?):

Some interesting new tops, like this one

Some skinny black pants. Maybe this pair from Gap?

Some flats like these

I am going to need some new tights. I usually buy them at Winners, but I seem to remember there is some big website with all sorts - Hue maybe?

Have you started shopping for fall yet? Am I the only crazy one? This must be why I am a teacher....I love back to school shopping!

I got a few things at superstore yesterday...2 pairs of skinny jeans for $19 each (grey and black). I am imagining them with some tall black boots that I do not yet own.

I am not allowed to buy any more flats.

I like that blazer...I can't see the charcoal one but I have a feeling I would like it better than the grey.

And I LOVE the nude pumps that all the royalty is wearing, but I see them as more of a spring purchase. Now is boot time smile

The charcoal is really nice, must be really new since it is not on the website yet.

I'll have to check out Joe next time I am at Superstore!

Do itttt! Get those boots!

I totally get it about dreaming up things I want. Although I dream up things/design things in my head that I want and then I can never find them.

Like flowy floral blouses. I can't find any that I like - where are you shopping for them?

This Banana Republic Mad Men collection confuses me. Didn't they already do this two summers ago? I remember seeing it the first time I was in a Banana Republic circa 2009.

So far my list doesn't have too much.

- 1-2 pair of dark skinny/boot cut jeans (1-2 pairs)
- 1 charcoal flats
- 1 brown tall boots (maybe riding)
- 2-3 chunky sweaters
- 1 pair of pants (tbd)

I have yet to determine a budget for this year, been so busy trying to get the kids ready for school.

I need a new pair of black riding boots. I threw my last pair out in NYC when the leather disintegrated around the sole. After 6 years, I don't supose they owed me anything.

They need to be dressy enough that I can wear with skirts and dresses, but casual enough I can wear with jeans. Preferabley waterproof, as we're moving to London.

These are perfect, unfortunately, they are so perfect, I made my Mom buy them. And I don't think we can wear matching boots...

I need some more professional clothes. I am moving from being 100% in the classroom to 50% in and 50% in a resource role that will have a lot more meetings and such. The problem is I have no idea what to add to my wardrobe.

I do have two black suits and I wear trousers and sweaters pretty much every day, but it is pretty basic because I am so hard on my clothes. I hate spending lots of money on stuff when I end up ripping my pants on a desk or getting paint on my sweater.

I bought a pair of riding boots from Browns last year that I love!!

I just have to find more work appropriate things to wear them with.

I will admit I am not ready for summer to end as much as I love fall clothes.

For those thinking of what to buy - esp the SAHM's, I read a really good article in Real Simple recently about revamping your wardrobe that made a lot of sense. You have to find one outfit or even just one peice of clothing that you like, that people compliment you on, and you feel comfortable in, and evaluate it. Fill out these forms and voila - your style is pinpointed and you can go shopping!

http://www.realsimple.com/static/pdfs/never-buy-wrong-thing-worksheet.pdf

p.s I also read something about figuring out what your "uniform" is each season, and wearing variations of that most of the time. This summer, mine was shorts, an oxford style button down and some leather sandals. Sometimes I would wear a silk tank, but I pretty much wore the same thing all summer, and it worked well!

Your stylist sounds amazing!

I tend to shop styles off maniquins and buy the 'look' if I like it.

I'm a real sucker for H&M - it's so cheap and I love almost everything. My co-workers always joke "oh, another H&M outfit". lol.

I actually can't decide what I want on my Fall list yet! This is a big dilemma, because I'm going to be in NYC on Monday for work and I'd like to get a bit of shopping in.

The thing is, we are saving for a house and to be honest, I don't know what I really need.

Maybe some coloured J Brand skinny jeans - maybe in red?

Brecksgirl - I'm positive it was a Target logo. We might go to Best Buy up there tomorrow - if we do I'll confirm for you. I was surprised to see it.

So I just went to check out the Mad Men collection at Banana - LOVE! I tried on the grey cowl neck dress and the floral dress with a bit of red in it. The floral one runs really big!

Both were $189 - which is expensive for rayon! I checked the US site and they are $150, so if I can get to one in NYC I think I'll at least buy one of the dresses.

I also spotted the J Brands and they now have a nice darker red and dark purple - I want both! (so much for not shopping...)

I've never actually gotten to Century 21 before, it's kind of out of the way unfortunately and I usually don't have a lot of time. I did do some damage once in Chicago at Nordstorm off the Rack smile

Haha Brecksgirls didn't realize you posted about the Mad Men stuff at BR right before I did...

And I think they did have a Mad Men-ish collection a few years ago, but they weren't calling it that. This time they worked with a costume designer from the show or something.

Just did some sleuthing online. It is a store owned by Fairweather/International Clothiers basically copycatting the name/logo in hopes for a large cheque when Target comes to Canada.

^^^ I was actually looking at that today. I'd heard of it before but I'm sooooo cheap. I've started to think that the money I've spent on clothes that make me look like I got dressed in the dark have added up to waaay more than a $50 donation, though!

I am dying for a jean jacket Like THIS

I am also going to have to dig out my black blazer and see if it fits. I am also thinking about getting a brown tweed one. I am also going to be looking for some bright colored cardigans.

If I lose the weight that I want to (only 10lbs left) I am going to invest in some really expensive skinny jeans. If not I saw some really nice ones in black at Joe Fresh!

I am really into scarves. Like THIS or THIS.

I am also on this riding boot trend. I am thinking black. I really want THESE Frye ones. But will probably look for a cheaper pair from a different brand.

I just bought THIS fossil watch and am very excited to wear it with cooler weather clothes like sweaters and blazers.

I am going to be wearing nursing tops for most of the winter so I am not very interesting that way. So I am hoping to accessorize like crazy and wear some really nice boots.

We shall keep this thread alive.

I'm searching for the perfect boot, but it would help if I found the perfect jeans. (next week, next week)

And I keep checking all the shop websites for new clothing arrivals.

I'm waiting for the chunkier sweaters, dresses, tunics...
