No nonsense Fall Fashion


Typically I’m a jeans kind of gal, but this Fall I wanted to step up my fashion game and incorporate some leggings and tights to change the look and feel of my usual outfits. I received a pair of camel corduroy leggings and a pair of black fishnet tights from No nonsense to help me do this. I’ve never worn corduroy leggings or fishnets, to be honest, so this was both fun and challenging to put outfits together with these leggings and tights.

I first paired the camel corduroy leggings with a black irregular hemline open shoulder top, leopard print scarf and a pair of black boots.

I love the neutral camel color that can be paired with most any color or combination of colors. Below I am wearing a cowl neck sweater tunic top in shades of teal with the same corduroy leggings and black boots. The leggings are so soft, comfortable and warm making them the perfect leggings for Fall attire. I absolutely love these corduroy leggings and will be getting more in different colors.

I’ve had a blue and leopard print top for about a month now that I haven’t worn yet because I didn’t want to wear it with just any pair of jeans. I decided to pair that top with the fishnets and black shorts. I also wore the fishnets with my long sleeve purple v-neck dress. Fishnets are a great way to add some flair to any outfit. These fishnet tights are actually very comfortable, too.

Fairisle Infinity Scarf- A Great Transition Accesory

If you have been in business for 130 years, chances are,  you know your customer. FRAAS does… and keeps bringing us beautiful pieces! FRAAS has another pretty but functional scarf that everyone will want, to make that transition between Autumn and Winter. The FairIsle Infinity scarf is the perfect accessory to take your warm weather tops a little further into the colder season. I happen to be addicted to scarves, all sizes, colors, weights and lengths. I can use a scarf to take a so-so outfit up a notch and make it special, or use it to bring together items in my wardrobe that I couldn’t normally wear as a finished look.  This pic is of me wearing the  Fairisle Infinity, made of a super soft blend of  acrylic, nylon and a bit of wool. It is so lightweight and airy, but has that little touch of warmth that I want this time of year. It is such a great  transition item, that perfect balance between warm, cool and cold. It loops easily and requires no tying which is one of the genius things about an infinity scarf. Not only will it dress up and function with outerwear, it will look great with a sweater, dress or blouse, and as an accent accessory. Colors include navy/turquoise, camel/ivory, rose/petal, and black/grey.  Of course I chose the black/grey because I think grey is one of the truly beautiful neutrals that goes with anything! This particular item retails in most stores for about $40.

Mikarose Modest Fashion for the Fall Season

I love it when the seasons change. My favorite has to be the Summer to Fall transition. I get to pull out my favorite sweater, jacket and long sleeve tops. This year I’ve been revamping my wardrobe, my newest addition comes from Mikarose. Mikarose is all about providing modest and stylish clothing for women. It can sometimes be tough to find fashionable dresses that are with a modest design, but Mikarose as an excellent selection. I received the lovely Bailey dress, in navy.

I love the way the dress is gathered in the front and back. The plackets that cross over and button have been added as a nice design element are my favorite feature of the Bailey dress. You can’t go wrong with a classic navy dress that has such a flattering shape. The fit is just perfect, not skin tight but not too loose. The dress is super comfortable, it is made up of 95% Viscose, 5% Spandex. It is machine washable which is really convenient, a lot of my dresses are hand wash and hang dry only.  At $49.99 it is an affordable, stylish addition to my Fall wardrobe.

The Bailey also comes in pink and slate, as well as navy. It comes is sizes ranging from XS-2XL, I found that the size I ordered and their sizing chart was very accurate and the dress fit true to size (no one size here).

If you are looking to update or add to your wardrobe I do recommend the Modest Fashion of Mikarose.

Fall Fashion: Emma Rose Plaid Ruffle Purse


Fall Fashion: Emma Rose Plaid Ruffle Purse

Fall always makes me think orange, reds, browns, pumpkins, hayrides and Halloween. It also makes me think plaid. I love plaid patterns, especially for Fall and Winter Seasons. I really like the grey and wine plaid pattern of my new Emma Rose handbag from Alexa’s Angles. The bad itself is cute, fashionable and affordable. It also has plenty of space for everything I need and everything that always seems to end up in my purses (mom’s, you know what I’m talking about).

This handbag measures about 13.5″ x 3.5″ x 9″, as I said before it is so roomy and has plenty of space inside for everything I tend to stuff in my purses.

Oasap Fall Fashion Plus End of Summer Sale

**Editor’s note: All links to Oasap have been removed from this post, after receiving a broken item, refusal of exchange and dishonesty about renewal of credits I can no longer support this company or recommend their products, service or blogger program.**

With Fall just around the corner I wanted to update my wardrobe with a few items for the season. It is also a tough choice when trying to make my monthly selections from the Oasap High Street Fashion web store, they have some fabulous pieces in their new arrivals sections. This rhinestone embellished deep V-neckline ruched dress was one that caught me eye. I love the purple, but they do have several other colors available. It’s not badly priced at $29 and can be worn with or without leggings.

I fell in love with this belted trench coat with double breasted button closure. Sadly it’s too tight in the shoulder area, so be sure to take a look at this coat on the model from their website for a better look at the fit. This is a nice coat and sells for $86.

These cat cut out earrings are just too adorable, they come in several colors and are priced at $8.
