Editor's August Picks

With Fall right around the corner, though we may not be packing away our short-shorts and flip-flops, we are starting to look at that cute little pea-coat or knee-high boots to rock into Fall and Winter! So I figure now is the best time to share my August picks for your stylistic needs! Feel free to share your thoughts on what you also think is hot or not for Fall of 2011!

I’m a bag girl, I admit it. It’s like your cell phone…you can’t leave home without a matching bag to rock on your shoulder or wrist. I came across a website, Voguette.com, where they have some FAB bags for your Fall needs. The one that I fell in love with was the neautral colored “Big Buddha Chloe” shoulder bag. If you’re looking for a bag that looks good and serves its function, then this is the one because it has plenty of pockets, an adjustable shoulder strap and top zippers. And I wouldn’t be the first to tell you about this bag, as it’s made headlines via In Style, Lucky, Teen Vogue, Women’s Wear Daily, Cosmopolitan, 0 Magazine, Marie Claire and more. But here’s a great note about the bag: it’s animal friendly and 100% vegan! This bag retails for $94.

The other thing that just gets me going is when I see an amazing necklace on someone’s neck. I recently walked into Forever 21 and fell in love…with a necklace. It had all the aspects of being highly fashionable, and yet at the same time, it was a piece that could be worn during a Red Carpet event or a night out in town with your girlfriends. The imported rhinestone choker featured faceted rhinestones and a lobster claw clasp. It’s about 14″ (chain length) and retails for $21. To me that’s a steal and you won’t find something else like that…and with a great price range!

So far, these are two great items which go great with one another! And what better way to rock these two items than with a fun, Fall outfit to go along! I couldn’t pick just one, as there were two dresses I saw at Macy’s which were too fun to go along with the bag and necklace! The dress to the left is a strapless, tiered, skirt-party dress, made by Tahari. The dress on the right is a sleeveless peplum, strapless cocktail dress by BCBGMAXAZRIA. The Tahari dress retails for $158 and the BCBG dress for $298. But don’t frown, because we all know that Macy’s is most well-known for their amazing sales throughout the year! So just save a little and you won’t feel bad when you spend * wink, winnk*

So there you have it! These are your editor’s picks for the month of August. Even though Fall hasn’t started, we can still use those neutral colors and add a little pizzaz through our colored outfits so we still feel summery in Fall!
