I am writing this from Rhode Island where temperatures are well above 90 degrees – I’m going to the beach tomorrow, except if it is supposed to rain as I have been told. I’m slowly loosing my mind and I can’t wait for the fall, as many of  you already know since I’ve been writing about fall fashions since July. Thankfully there’s only 6 weeks left of this weather and then I can go from complaining about the heat to complaining about the cold.

Take a look: Snake bracelet, $5.00 Family tee, $24.00 These items featured above are available at Marc by Marc Jabobs stores. Also… Most of  the fall footwear from is incredible.

Leather + Blue Jeans

Posted on July 23, 2009

I found absolute inspiration from Alexander Wang and from the Fall 2009 pieces from William Rast with this look that I plan on wearing in the Fall along with a red lip, studded boots and statement bracelets.
