Fall Picks from a Penny-Pinching Style Blogger
Kimberly Smith, the blogger behind Penny Pincher Fashion, shares her fall wishlist
These luxe booties look so similar to the Rachel Zoe version I've been lusting after, but at much more affordable price. I'd pair them with everything from floucy skirts to skinny jeans.
2. Marc Jacobs Beauty Nail Lacquer in Jezebel, $18
Not only is this shade the perfect dark vampy red for fall and winter, but the polish also covers well, dries fast and has such a shiny finish you almost don't need a topcoat (but I use one anyway).
3. Bar III Necklace, $58
I fully admit to having a jewelry addiction, which is why I've been focusing more lately on buying unique pieces that aren't similar to ones I already own. The architectural feel of this necklace would add just the right amount of edge to any look.
4. Zara Checked Top with Zips, $79.90
I've always been wary of the plaid flannel trend that seems to surface every fall, so thus far I've avoided it for fear of looking like a lumberjack. But this top changed my mind -- with a slightly oversize shape and zippered details, it's a totally modern take on this classic print.
5. Skies Are Blue Sueded Jacket, $79
This rich cognac jacket is the perfect color for the season, and the soft finish looks and feels like real suede, without the hefty price tag.
6. BareMinerals Conceal & Reveal Kit, $25
My search for an under eye product that would actually cover my dark circles has finally ended! This is like the holy grail of all concealers -- the reviews speak for themselves.
7. ASOS Stack Pack Rings, $21.36
One of my favorite trends from the runways -- I'm taking full advantage of layering these gold rings before the cold weather and glove season hits. These are great for mixing, matching and stacking in so many different ways.
8. ASOS Leather and Boucle Weave Clutch, $71.19
I love finding clutches that are unique and will make a statement on their own. The texture and shine of this one makes it ideal for both evening and weekends, and will have everyone asking, "Where did you get that?"
9. Felt Cap, $12.95
This cap is the perfect solution for bad hair days and the easiest way to make an outfit instantly more effortless and cool. Baseball hats are not just for weekends anymore. Try wearing with a schoolboy blazer, distressed denim and heels for a totally chic look.
10. Contrast Trim Quilted Skirt, $68
Quilting is a huge trend for fall 2013, and this skirt blends the sporty element with a feminine shape. I'd wear this with a chunky sweater and ankle boots or a button-down blouse and trench coat.
