In New York City everyone always seems to be wearing black. Though this seemingly eternal trend transcends seasons, it’s most apparent in the winter. Personally, I love wearing black. Not only is it slimming, but it never fails to give you a classically dressy look that can be worn to almost any event or occasion. While it’s fun to play with color, black can take you from the office, to dinner and finally to drinks at the club without ever having to change. After all, what New Yorker has time to change?
This time of year, one of the many things I wish for is a fabulous designer pair of suede over the knee boots. I just love how they can be sexy without revealing anything at all. Plus, they’re super warm and go with almost everything. This fashionable dichotomy is what makes OTK boots a staple in every woman’s wardrobe. Lately, I’ve had my eye on the “Lowland” over the knee boots by Stuart Weitzman. However, with a price tag of over $700, they are regretfully not a part of my winter wardrobe.
Knowing that a number of fellow fashionistas were being faced with the same footwear dilemma, I decided to search for a more affordable pair. During my search, I found a practically identical pair for nearly a third of the price at Goodnight Macaroon. Happy holidays (and shopping) to boot lovers everywhere!
What I love most about fall is breaking out my skinny jeans, boots and light sweaters. The comfortable chill in the air, gets me thinking about Halloween and apple cider. The changing leaves also play a huge role in my style choices during the fall months. In celebration of fall, here’s my shopping list of fab fall fashions:
3. Camel Detachable Fur Lined Hood Contrast Trims Cape: I’ve always wanted a cape and this one is to die for! Fall is the best time to wear capes as they can be a stylish alternative to a light jacket. With winter being so cold, they often get covered up. So take the opportunity to show them off during fall.
4. Sephora Favorites Draw The Line: I love black eyeliner, especially liquid. However, I don’t wear it much in the summer because the heat often melts it off. So in the fall, I kind of go crazy with the liner.
5. Vince Camuto ‘Karita’ Over the Knee Boots: There’s nothing sexier for fall than over the knee boots. Aside from being sexy, they keep you warm and go with anything. With all the walking I do around NYC, I wore out my old pair last year. I’m dying to get these.
