Looking Ahead:
Chic and Cheap Faves for Fall

This summer heat is draining me! Even in my airy halter and strappy gladiators. Last weekend while I drove through Sacramento my car told me it was 108° outside. Blasted heat waves. Just seeing those numbers emblazoned on my GPS screen made me wilt, even with the A/C blasting away. Lucky for me I keep a spritzer of H2O Oasis Hydrating Mist on hand for just such occasions. One quick spritz (or two) and my face feels cool and refreshed, which makes me feel cool and refreshed! Problem solved.

The idea of cooler weather has me longing for fall to arrive, although in reality I am truly just dying to break out some new fall pieces after Fashion Week’s big reveals.

Like a good Girly, I have been doing my research. Though I desperately want to go out and purchase all things Lepore and Kors, (and I must admit that I will most likely snap up a couple of timeless classics) I’m opting for the designer-substitute route. (Wallet-wise purchases make for a happy Hubby.)

This fall season brings less new fashion than, well, ‘80s revival. With a twist. From neon tops to ankle pBodenants, heck, even leather pants are popping in for the season! And if you plan on looking hot in those leather pants, you need to be wearing your Reebok EasyTones when you run errands after work and on the weekends! I noticed how sleek and toned She She Me's calves were looking, and she told me her not-so-secret weapon in the war on flabby legs.

Maybe I should go dig through my auntie’s attic for some real authentic ‘80s stuff? How great would that be? All my friends would ask, “Where did you get that amazing velvet dress?” I’d shrug and answer, “1982.”

Moving on, these are a few of my favorite chic and cheap replacements for fab fall designer finds:

Neon Hues: Particularly pink. Honestly, somehow this über-bright color looks fab with every skin tone. It’s like Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, except with color. But still. You can share it with your girlfriends.

Fashion Week boasted hot pink dresses, but if that’s a bit much you can simply go for bright accessories, like a scarf, bracelet or clutch. My perfect combination of color and style is this gorgeous blouse dress; sleek and sexy with just that added punch of color.

Feminine Jackets and Cardis: Girly, ruffled cropped jackets are all the rage this fall. They’re dressy-casual, the perfect piece to perk up an otherwise everyday outfit.

This ruffle-hemmed cardi is a pretty, cozy lightweight alternative to the jacket. Wear it with an embroidered skirt for a casual, feminine look. Finish with a pair of chic platform pumps and a saucy little handbag. And speaking of handbags, I've just found the most fabulous little "accessory"! The FUMI Pursehook is so gorgeous that you can actually wear it as a bracelet, then whip it open to hang your handbag from the desk, table, chair or wherever! Keeps your bag clean and safe while keeping you stylish as well! After all, you spent a pretty penny on that gorgeous bag; don't take chances with it getting stained or damaged! The FUMI also makes an excellent gift!

Velvety Soft: Yep. Velvet. But I’m not talking George Costanza drape-me-in-velvet obsession; more like cozy/sexy/chic short velvet date night dress. Pretty velvet dresses are hitting the racks in earthy hues, perfect for the coming season.

This Marc Jacobs velvet bubble skirt would pair beautifully with a light silky top, heels and a great clutch.

It’s a Blanket; It’s a Sweater: Actually, it’s a comfy von Furstenberg creation for this season, though you can save a paycheck by going for a pretty—and more real-life friendly—knockoff.

Welcome back belted and draped cardis! These are the perfect casual piece to pair with your skinny jeans and pumps for a night with the girls.

Dig That Denim: With Georgia May Jagger, youngest offspring of Mick Jagger & Jerry Hall, as the new face (and body) of Hudson Jeans, I am looking at denim in a whole new way. Perhaps I, too, could be rock-n-roll royalty in a pair of these gorgeous and fabulously figure flattering jeans!

You have your choice of denim designers this fall my friends, as everyone is right on trend with the skinnies, the leggings, the boyfriend, the ripped and ragged, et al. And you know you can never go wrong in a pair of classic Levi's. And the perfect complement to this fall's denim? The boyfriend blazer of course! A must-have for fall.

That wraps it up for now. Stay cool and stay beautiful. Happy fall shopping, ladies!
