Funky Fall Favorites!

This fall is all about  funky trends that I am absolutely loving. When it comes to fashion, I love experimenting, stepping out of the box, and trying new things – it’s all about having fun!

Here are some fab new ways to update your fall closets:

1. Heel-less Platforms

The heel-less plaform is fun, sexy, edgy, and HOT! I absolutely love it! All thanks to Lady Gaga for making us all go gaga over these shoes. Lady Gaga was audacious enough to first step out in a pair. They may seem impossible to walk in, but I recently invested in a pair myself and they have proven to be quite easy, especially if you are used to strutting around in 5in heels.

Here are some great finds for less:

leather heel-less peep-toe platforms

Leather Heel-less Peep Toe Platforms – $42

spiked heel-less platforms

Spiked Heel-less Platforms – $68

Lace Up Platform – $195 

2. Studded Pointed Pumps

Rock out this season in pointed pumps covered in studs. The spiked and studded trend isn’t a complete newbie, but it definitely is making a statement this fall. It adds the right amount of edge and fierceness to your look. My favorite is a pair of pointed black pumps with gold studs/spikes all over. They are definitely my go to pair for this fall!

This is the pair I have from Steve Madden and they are on sale now! – $89.98

Studded Pumps with Ankle Straps – $99

Galactic Studded Court Heels – $120

3. Studded Leather Gloves

I’ve always loved gloves. A few years back I styled gloves with almost all my fall outfits. A little obsessed, I know. But now they’re making a come back with a chic and edgy twist. Once again we are seeing studs take over. Studded leather gloves are the perfect accessory to your fall outfit. Not only do they keep your fingers cozy, but they always vamp up your look. Perhaps bring out our inner Michael Jacksons as well?

Here are some pocket friendly finds:

TOUCH - Studded leather gloves

Touch Studded leather Gloves – $79.99

River Island Black Leather Studded Glove – $48

4. Wedge Sneakers

I must admit, I’m really not a sneakers kind of gal. Anything with a 5in heel is my best friend. However, I am really liking the revamped sneaker – it’s comfortable and casual, yet stylishly sexy with its hidden wedge heel. This fall is all about comfort combined with chicness, and what better way to update your closet than by adding this piece to it. You can pair these sneakers with skirts, skinny jeans, shorts, leggings and more! The options are endless!

Here are some great finds:

Studded Black Wedge Sneaker – $99.90 

Isa Wedge Sneaker

Isa Wedge Sneaker – $295

Bowie Suede Wedge Sneakers – $195

Update your fall closets now by adding these funky pieces!

TREND ALERT! Wine and Dine in BURGUNDY this FALL!

Spotted all over the Fall runways, this sexy hue is the best way to update an outfit this fall. Add a wine colored bag or shoe, or spice up your look with intense Bordeaux lips. Burgundy is the new neutral and can even be worn from head-to-toe without being considered too much. Its intense color provides for a chic, edgy, and versatile look, and can even be paired nicely with many colors. Burgundy is a rich, luxurious color, and is a nice medium between stark red and banal black.

I’ve always been a huge fan of Alberta Ferretti, but for the first time the collection is affordable while staying true to the brand’s aesthetic. What could be better?

Collaborations have become the hottest thing for high end designers and we wonder who is next…

TOPSHOP INVASION!

Not that we weren’t crazy about TOPSHOP already, but after visiting its freshly, so beautifully ordained Vegas store, we’re in love!

Walking in to this store is a fashionista’s dream! The amount of eye candy, from shoes, to clothes, to accessories, to makeup, to bags, is endless. I think I spent the first 5 minutes just taking in all the amazingness. I’ve always visited the online version of the store, but seeing the pieces in person, as well as the entire makeup of the store including the decorated mannequins, is entirely fabulous. This beloved fast-fashion chain is a little bit on the pricier side when compared to stores like H&M, forever21, and ZARA. But nonetheless, the store is absolutely fashion forward, so on trend, and a shopper’s delight!

Urvika and I made sure to snag a few fun/chic pieces before be left! We absolutely loved the glitter/coral heels, alphabet stockings, and gold body chain!

TOPSHOP just announced last month that it will be opening it’s first ever Los Angeles based store at the Grove this November! Can’t Wait! Keep your eyes peeled fashionistas ❤
