Lo Shopping – A Few Fall Picks

The weather is getting cooler.  Soon it will be time for me to switch out my summer clothes for my fall/winter clothes.

My winter wardrobe is non existent after living in Los Angeles for ten years.  One, it doesn’t get that cold in L.A., two it’s a much more casual place than New York or Rome.

I am slowing adding pieces to my wardrobe.  No more fast fashion.  It looks like crap on me and never lasts.  No more impulse buys.  I can’t afford to spend what little funds I’ve budgeted for clothing on items that sit in my closet because I wasn’t sure what I was thinking when I bought them.  No more buying items that are just okay.  I have to love the fit, the color, the style, everything.  I don’t care if it’s a simple t-shirt or a leather bag.  If I’m not swooning, it stays on the hanger.

There are so many things I want. What I need however, are tops and dresses.

Jules Dress – J. Crew

Tie Neck Top – J. Crew

Victoria Beckham AW10

I’m a big J. Crew fan.  I haven’t had much luck with their dresses.  They tend to be too small for me in the chest area, but I have found some great blouses and sweaters.

I adore the simple Jules dress.  It could be casual or dressy depending on the accessories.

You can’t go wrong with a classic white blouse.

The neckline on the Beckham dress is AMAZING.  I couldn’t find of a photo of it in the graphite color, which is the color I would buy.  It’s a pity I can’t afford it.  I will have to appreciate this dress from afar.

  2. Layers!

    As you get closer to the date, check the weather. We do have cold snaps sometimes but overall it’s a lot warmer in Rome during the winter than say New York or Boston.

    Paris and London are usually colder than Rome.
