Bag Obession: Chloe Marcie

Houston we've got a problem!  I'm currently crushing on the Chloe Marcie bag.  The other day I walked into Starbucks and saw a woman carrying the bag in the most luscious red color, dubbed Peony Red by Chloe.  The color was reminiscent of the color on the Starbucks holiday cups, which made me think that this would be the perfect bag to pull out during the holidays.  It definitely adds a pop of color to a bleak winter day.  Of course, it would work well in other seasons.  I can picture this bag paired with a white dress eyelet dress in the summer.  The photos online do not do it justice, you must see the color for yourself.   The bag comes in other great colors and I'm loving the bag in nut (brown) and cashmere grey.  Oh, and it's also super cute in the mini satchel form!

Drugstore Pick: Wet and Wild Mega Last Lip Color

A few weeks ago one of my close friends and fellow makeup addicts turned me onto Wet and Wild Mega Last Lip Color.  I was a bit apprehensive to try such an inexpensive lip product.  What if the formula was bad?  What if there was not color pay off?  But much to my surprise, the formula and color pay off was amazing.  Other bloggers go as far as to compare them to some MAC lipsticks!  I first purchased Think Pink, a brilliant baby pink shade and upon applying it to my lips, I quickly purchased Wine Room and Bare It All.  Sure the packaging isn't my favorite, but you can't beat the price.  Each tube retails for about $1.99.  Most drugstores often run buy one get one half off promotions on Wet and Wild, so you really have no excuse not to try them!  The main downside is that your lips must be well conditioned prior to applying the lipstick because it is a matte formula it will cling to dry lip flakes.  A swipe of vaseline on your lips each night should fix the problem though.  As of now there are 26 shades in the collection, so I'll probably be picking up just a few more...okay maybe a lot more!

Currently Craving: Fall Edition

In most parts of the country, fall is full swing ahead.  Although I'm loving the changing of the leaves, I can't say that I'm the biggest fan of the brisk weather.  It's so chilly in the morning!  Thankfully there are some pretty great fall items out in stores.  As you can see from my list below it's all about layering.  What I love about these pieces is that they are all super versatile and can be worn into winter as well!  Here's what I'm currently craving:

Faux Fur Trim Parka from Banana Republic

This is the quintessential casual fall coat.  I love the army green color and it incorporates one of the biggest upcoming trends, faux fur accents.  Throw it on over any outfit and go out and frolic in the foliage, you won't be cold!

Factory Novelty Quilted Puffer Vest from Jcrew Factory

Last fall I purchased this Excursion Quilted Vest from Jcrew and I've been living in it ever since. It's light enough for those days when it starts out chilly in the morning and warms up in the afternoon but it's also really easy to layer for cold days.  I just add a thick long sleeve shirt and a scarf for those colder days.  What I love about this vest is the herringbone pattern, how classic.

The problem that I find with booties is that they often cut off the leg which make for a totally unflattering look.  What I love about these ankle boots is that they are cut to give the leg the longest appearance possible.  These booties would pair well with tights and a skater skirt or with some super skinny black jeans.

Over-the-knee Socks from Forever 21

I'm all over the whole over-the-knee sock trend that's coming into style!  What a great way to still be able to wear a dress or a skirt but also keep your legs warm.  You can layer them over sheer tights for even more warmth.  Over-the-knee socks look great paired with both booties or knee high boots.

I can't believe that I don't own a flannel shirt, it's a fall wardrobe staple.  What I love about this flannel shirt is that it's so simple yet so chic.  I never thought that I would call a flannel shirt chic! I absolutely love how it's styled on the model in the image above.  I could also see myself wearing it open with a silky blouse underneath.

While I could add more to the list, these are the five pieces that I can't stop thinking about!  I've already indulged and purchased the booties and I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival in the mail but I'm still hoping to add more items from this list into my wardrobe.  What are you currently craving?
