Fall Fashion Fixes

Ever since we got married, I've been on a bit of a shopping spree. I was so wedding focused & restrained for so many months that I guess it was bound to happen.

It first started on our honeymoon in Montreal, one of my all time favorite shopping cities. Before we even checked into our hotel, the super sexy W, we made a stop at Abe & Mary's, which is basically the Kitson of Montreal. Needless to say, my shopping urge was instantly woken! Even though I fell in love with numerous items, I showed what I consider to be admirable restraint, and only bought one item. A gorgeous eggplant strapless satin dress which I wore to my cousin's wedding this past weekend.

The next day we headed on over to Boul. St-Laurent and I picked up a few other things that I had to have, a striped cardi, a fringed ivory short sleeve bolero and a few other staples that I needed. Still not so bad. I definitely didn't go overboard.

Fringed bolero in Ivory

Well things kinda changed once I got back from my honeymoon. My shopping urge kicked into overdrive. I mean, who can blame me with NY Fashion Week being in town and no wedding to distract me, right? Fashion was in the air!

But I've still been pretty good, sticking mostly to H&M, Zara and Urban Outfitters and the like. I haven't ventured into Topshop yet because I'm kinda scared of what might happen. It's tempting me though....

Here are a few of the things I've picked up recently:

Silence & Noise motorcycle jacket

UO Patterned scarf

Alfani Cassy Pump

And this one I can't quite believe I purchased. I couldn't help it though. They were hot & less than $20! I figured I could wear them with some skirts & long cardis and jackets that I have.

H&M sequined leggins

Now I know I'm not the only one who loves to shop during the fall. There's just something about the lux fabrics, colors, shoes, to die for boots & accessories that makes me drool. So what are some of your latest fall purchases?

It's funny ... I've seen very few of these purchases. The wife's always the last one to know! You were probably waiting to knock me off my seat in those leggings. Trying to fulfill your lifelong fantasy of being Sandy from Grease?
