Chocolate hues and vining grapes set the tone for this label heavy autumn display. Go from day to cocktail hour in that one-pocketed Prada on the right with a toss of the cardigan/blazer. It’s a super versatile workhorse of a dress! That centre Pucci- not so much. It’s more of a show pony, meant to dazzle your on-lookers with it’s fab print and poet sleeves. Separates are not to be overlooked over on the left. Dior ruffles and ribbons abound on that romantic crochet cardigan. It’s paired with a warm wool Celine pleated skirt which would look sweet with some tall leather boots. And there is loads more in store kittens!

Ok, let’s cut straight to the chase! How terribly chic is that 1950’s trapeze coat on the right! It makes me swoon and let out random “ohhhhs” while looking at it. From the oversized pockets & sleeves to the HUGE abalone buttons; this is perfection in a coat. The label is long gone, but we have a feeling that this is from a New York designer. Very à la Balenciaga. Side note; MIA labels are the bane of my existence…. Oh well, c’est la vie.

Zebras know how to work a dashing look, refusing to be tamed like their horse cousins.  Why not take a cue  from our wild equidae friends and do a black and white print? If a full ensemble print is too much,  you can always mix and match like our centre Judy (or like this fellow).
