Fall Forward

Here are a few things that the Fashionable Kiffen wants to be wearing this fall:

Long black leather gloves like these opera length ones from LaCrasia. They're perfect for layering under one of fall bracelet-sleeved jackets.

A feminine black lace skirt toughened up with a black leather motorcycle jacket and knee boots. This skirt is by Y&Kei.

Statement jewelry. I wish it was these Cartier pieces, but realistically my fall jewelry will probably be some interesting vintage finds (by the way, can you tell I like cats?)

Now for the shoes. I'm all about the platforms (more height and easier to walk in!) and the high boots. I'm liking metallic gold, shades of gray, all varieties of animal print, and of course, glossy black. These Gucci disco gold sandals are perfect for a glam night out and the Rochas nude pumps are the ultimate basic shoe. An added bonus: any shoe that matches your skin tone will make your legs look a mile long. And the Egyptian-inspired Louboutins in the center? Some girls dream about Brad Pitt, I dream about these sublime shoes.

Now, I'm, not that into bags. Give me a big leather tote and I'm good. However, these two fall bags, by Bottega Veneta (right) and Philip Lim (left) are simply gorgeous.

Now for the clothes. I'm feeling the sort of edgy, neo-gothic, futuristic vibe at Versace, Dior, McQueen, etc. Lots of black and deep cool tones warmed up with gold, tons of leather, and a destroyed yet elegant vibe. This Dior flapperish dress is absolutely stunning - I want the whole look.

For daytime, these DVF outfits are visually interesting, and would be perfect with my fall accessory choices.

So when's this heat wave going to end? I think I'll keep cooling off by shopping for my fall wardrobe.
