... mixing stripes, brocade... and fur for fall ...

With fall's official arrival this week...
and some beautiful SOCAL weather here...
I couldn't be happier...
to do some
new fall wardrobe styling.

I am so happy with my new fall mix.
Shopping my own closet of fall favorites...
I have styled some old favorites with a new twist...
and I'm loving this...

stripes + brocade ankle pants + fur vest + ankle strap heels + accessories

as always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life

  1. I want to know who takes all these gorgeous pictures for you? I have no one! And, I'm the most horrible photographer, of anything, not just me. xx's

  2. Marsha... my youngest son, who is becoming a gifted photographer, takes many of the photos of me. i take most all of the other photos... and as with anything... I have improved with LOTS of practice :))

  10. Stunning. Just stunning photos and outfit.

    The styling of the photos is great too, the apples and the wicker, the bag and the apples. Did you take the photos on a bench?

    I have to say...should you ever feel so inclined as to no longer require that bag, I will gladly take it off your hands! It has me drooling, and I don't even like bags.

    What kind is it?

    bisous

    1. Thank you Suzanne! I did shoot the pieces on a bench on the trail.

      The bag is a Dooney and Bourke... I got it two years ago for my trip to Napa... and i still love it!

      Loved your post today!

  15. I knew we were going to be in for a treat when you announced last week that you were gathering your fall wardrobe, but I had NO idea it would be this special. Wait, yes, I kind of did, it's you I'm talking about. This is just awe-inspiring. Perfect way to bring in Fall in grandiose fashion, my friend. And, talk about layering with detail and surprise, just lovely.
    I especially like the pop of fuscia in the one photo with those fun shoes.

  19. The brocade pants are gorgeous! I am so looking forward to cooler weather but unfortunately here in Dubai we have to brace another couple of months of summer and the last bit is normally very humid!

  26. Every element a star! Just like you ... so eloquently and elegantly expressed. I do prefer the handbag to the basket of apples for carrying you stuff around, though. Just sayin ' ...
