My Five Fall Essentials

For the first time in a long time, I don’t need a fall staple- my grey Miu Miu coat is still perfect, ditto the beige Miu Miu boots from Spring and the Givenchy bottle-green tote will be better this year than last.  So, I am free to just cull out my favorite bits and bobs from the collections and add them to my wardrobe.

Many of the Fall shows were really strong and there are a lot of pieces I would wear forever. After my Valentino Rockstud binge (I now have 5 pairs), I am ready for a plainer shoe and the Valentino low heeled pump with an ankle strap is it. I love everything about this shoe and will buy it in every color except red.

With a simple shoe, I will wear more embellished dresses and tops. The Isabel Marant dress and Altuzarra sweater fit the bill perfectly. They have great texture and prints, but are still neutral.

I have been on the list for an Hermes Collier de Chien in Barenia and gold for longer than I care to admit. Last winter, I almost broke down and bought one in dark brown but I talked myself out of it-  I’m glad I did. When the barenia came in recently, I was happy I waited as the color is very me. This bracelet will most likely be welded to my wrist this fall…

Finally, it is no secret that I am obsessed with this Hoorsenbuhs ring. It’s clean lines will work nicely with my Cartier Trinity and signet ring. It should probably be top of my list.
