to autumn with love

Since this will be my first winter in central Florida, I'm not really sure how possible all the leather and layering will be...but I'm gonna damn sure try.

See Spot Go

I love how leopard print can take so many different directions in a look.

drugstore therapy

Sometimes on this blog, my proclamation on what I'm inspired by and what I want to execute is pretty far fetched and most likely more important things come bills and purchasing a leather jacket in mint green will never happen. The heartache last for a while but subsides pretty quickly from the relief of having a roof over my head and netflix.
But sometimes, I can't go on with my life until I have that "thing" that is occupying my brain/notebook/sketch pad/pinterest board/blog posts/etc! 
Bright orange lips was the most recent culprit and I'm happy to report that my obsession was for good reason! 
Seriously, I don't know how I went this long without a shade of orange lipstick in my possession!
Yesterday I even applied it to clean my bathrooms. I was in frumpy cleaning clothes with gross hair but having that lipstick on made the chore of housework a little more enjoyable.
Being a woman is pretty rad.

take a little time

Messy, slightly fuzzy up dos and bold lips are on my mind for the coming months.

know what you don't want

As mentioned a few posts back, one of my Fall 13 "must find" item is the perfect over the knee boots. I have been searching ever since then and I won't be done until I have a pair in my possession. I have come across some pretty good pairs and as of now I'm just narrowing my finds and saving up my money.
Finding the perfect pair of boots is hard enough, but the perfect over the knee boot is damn near impossible. Especially since I'm so picky and with my budget.

My stipulations go as follows:

Black or Dark Grey...That way they will go with everything
Real Leather...nothing worse than fake ass leather boots (IMHO)!!
Thicker/Classic Heel....In order to wear season after season and to not look like a hooker.
Mid Thigh Length....not those just over the knee boots..go big or go home! 
Top of boot is not angled and/or has no slit in the back of thigh...I do not want to look like a pirate
Under $500...because I'm not made of money

Easy......Right!?! yeah...welcome to my world of fashion snobbery on a budget! **sigh**

These are my top picks so far! 
These are my favorites thus far! Super perfect!! You can find them here

These don't meet my heel requirement but for the price they are a great casual OTK boot. Buy here! 

I like the rugged heel and classic toe shape. Find here.

I really like these! They come in black or brown. I like the suede finish. And the height of the heel and shape are perfect.
Bonus points for the bit of platform toe for comfort and great price! Buy here!

Fall Black

Definitely into the Autumn Lookbook from Maje.
 The combinations/proportions/feel to each look is spot on.
Right up my alley.
