My Vegan Fall Shopping List

My Vegan Fall Shopping List

Fall is here! Or at least in my head it is, because it's September. September to me means fall, and that it's now acceptable to wear boots again. I usually do most of my shopping bi-annually, corresponding with both the fall and spring seasons. Fall is my favorite because I love sweater weather, scarfs, boots and cozy stuff. Here's a quick peek of some things I'm currently wanting to add to my wardrobe this season. All are cruelty-free and vegan of course.

Fall Shopping List

ONE // Turtlenecks!  (similar here) // TWO // Ripped Up Boyfriend Jeans (similar here) // THREE // Ankle Boots with Hardware (similar here) // FOUR // Cat Eye Ray Ban Wayfarers // FIVE // Obsessive Compulsive Stained Lip Tar in New Wave // SIX // A dual tone trench.  I scored a very similar one from Calvin Klein // SEVEN // I adore this black and neon scarf from ASOS.  I'm debating buying it, or if I should just learn to knit one myself.  Decisions, decisions.

What will you be picking up to complete your fall wardrobe?

Keep It Conservative

Keep It Conservative {What I'm Wearing: Sweater: no name brand (thrifted); Skirt: Michael Kors (thrifted, similar one here);  Boots: Aldo; Bag: Cornelia Guest} I learned a few new things this week. First is I should always let Jim take my outfit photos for me. He helped me out twice this week because I was short on time and didn't feel like setting up my tripod. It took way less time, and the photos came out great because he has such a great artistic eye. In fact, in these photos he insisted on using this wall as the backdrop, and I didn't understand why until I saw the images. Rock on Jim, rock on. Second thing I learned is I can't wear what I used to wear to work now with my super red hair. The hair is accessory enough, and if I wear something else really colorful or busy looking it doesn't come across super professional. The hair color is pretty punk rockish. Before the change I would very easily pull off neon heels and bright graphic blouses at work and with the new hair it's almost sensory overload. While I'm lucky my job adheres to a business casual dress code (plus most of my colleagues are men, and know nothing about professional women's attire), it's still extremely important to me that I'm taken seriously. While I don't really talk about it on the blog, I have around 40 people who report to me just within my own company, and scores of colleagues who are vendors or customers. So this week I've learned to lay off the bright accessories and let the hair do the talking. It seems to be working well, since most people noticed the hair but didn't really make a huge deal out of it. That alone helped assure me that I towed the line between conservative and punk to the best of my abilities. Now what I wear on the weekends, that's another story. I'm really excited to experiment with my faves, like leopard. That and I'm excited to do some shopping. For some reason I'm really feeling I need more gray to compliment this red. What additions do you think I should make to my wardrobe that will compliment my new hair color? I'd love some suggestions!
