Wedge-Heel Ankle Booties
Fall always makes me want to look a little fancier than the spring and summer, and high heels always do the trick. A wedge heel is a comfy option to step up your outfit, and a wedge bootie works with dresses, skirts, under wide-leg pants, or with your skinnies. There are many options available, from the high end to the affordable. Zara and Aldo both have some fun styles. Michael Michael Kors does a nice one, and there are always good ones from Prada! I have my eye on a cognac coloured pair with a wooden heel and a gold zipper from Zara...
Grey is one of my favorite colours for fall. It's such a fabulous neutral, softer than black and can be paired with shades of brown as well (so I could wear it with the booties!). My favorite way to wear grey is head to toe. A chunky knit sweater with some leggings or skinny pants a belt and some heels all in grey? FABULOUS.

Now, I don't need to go shopping for any fur, per se, as I already have some, but a girl can always use more. I have a faux mink jacket that fools everyone, a faux leopard collar, and a real vintage mink stole that my mum was given by a old relative, and then she gave to me. I have yet to wear it, but I think I should test out some outfits with it soon!

A Structured Dress
A structured dress is one of the most flattering pieces a girl can wear. With all the ladylike fashions coming down the runways, and now available in stores, there are many options to choose from. Victoria Beckham, who I adore, does some amazing dresses. Since I don't have a spare $2,000 kicking around I found an amazing magenta one from Diane von Furstenburg. Nothing is better and more lasting and versatile than a fitted shift-style dress with a nipped waist. It's the easiest way to look sexy and polished without much effort.
