fall has arrived. the leaves are turning yellow and orange. the air is crisp and cool.  and as i walk the streets of nyc, i see boots, scarves, mittens, and beanies.  

i pulled out my betsey johnson cape for the first time this season yesterday. i hope capes stay in style for several more years.  they are flattering, feminine and functional. and if you can use the "3 f's" when talking about an item of clothing, you know it's a keeper.     

i also am loving bringing out these short brown boots. i got them at aldo a couple years ago...and i like them more than my frye boots. they are not as clunky, but still give the western/vintage look.   

the bag in this shot was something that i picked up in thailand. i think it cost me about 6-7 bucks. but go figure that later this broke. oh well. i think i still got my money's worth.     

happy fall, friends.
