fall twist on the basics

When it comes to fall I immediately think neutrals but even basic colors can have pizazz. My favorite twist on basic black this season is when it is adorned with ruffles...

And when it come to taupe, loving everything with luxurious textures and golden touches.

Now if only I could afford that cape! I think it may be about time for a cheap(er) chic post!

OMG I tried those shoes on at Barney's and they seriously are the most exquisite things I have ever seen! I was THIS CLOSE to buying them but the only problem is that they can't really be worn with pants--the hem gets in the way of the beautiful detail on the shoe. And I wanted them in brown but don't have enough skirts and dresses that go with brown shoes...sigh.

So maybe my solution should be to a) buy the shoes in brown and then b) buy some skirts and dresses to wear with them!

or
c) dream from afar
