ModCloth Fall Style

Nov 6, 2014

Since I moved -- to save money -- I've found myself with more money in da bank than I'm used to. I mean, that's how it was supposed to work. Less rent = more money in da bank. Why do I keep saying da.

All right y'all, I think you know where I'm going with this. It's fall, I recently lost some weight (albeit weight that I'd lost this same time last year so most of my clothes still fit, but still...), there are new trends to be tried, I'm still single, etc. etc. etc.?

Here's the thing: I really do want to change my relationship with money, and that means not giving too much credence to the above excuses for shopping. That's why I tried to get it out of my system when I went to NYC in September and got this skirt (among a few other things):


The moment I saw it in the window of the retro store, Tatyana, I had to have it. It was a splurge buy at $90 and I couldn't wait to show it off!

But it didn't have to be a splurge buy, y'all, because ModCloth has it for $62.99. Duh! Why didn't I think to look there first? I'm on the website all the time anyway. This is what we call a very specific type of a #FashionFail.

We mustn't dwell on our mistakes, ladies, so in the interest of chic, affordable shopping, I put together a little sampling of my ModCloth style for fall:


Modcloth Fall 2014


I lurv the drapey cardigan (find all their cardis here), and I am especially obsessed with those booties, since this is the first year I'm trying out booties. I know I know, another #FashionFail on my part. Don't ask me why I was so scurrred. Or why I keep talking like I think I'm a rapper.

That wine color is on the top of my list for fall 2014, and I love the idea of mixing it with minty and emerald greens, mustard and gold. Those Aztec prints -- subtle enough so I don't feel like I'm making too much of a statement about Aztec -- are so graphic and interesting, and who doesn't love woodland creatures? MUST HAVE KISSING FOXEN. Yes I said foxen. This is a look I want to live in all fall and into the winter!

Do you have any ModCloth fall finds I should know about?
