The weather has been absolutely gorgeous this week and I am lovin’ every minute of it! As the month of August quickly comes to a close, I find myself in deep reflection. Is it me…or has the summer completely flown by? How is this possible? Am I ready to trade in my sandals for riding boots? Before we know it, the crisp Fall air will be upon us …..and to be honest – I am so hyped! It is my belief that we are standing on the precipice of an extremely exciting and eclectic fall fashion season! Don’t get me wrong, I will be sad to bid adieu to the summer sun, but seriously, who isn’t hyped about donning bourgeois chic fur and rich winter hues!
If you have just recently joined Thriftjuice, (*sidebar* greetings!) you should know this little tidbit *aboot me. Fall is my all time favourite fashion season! As a child, I remember loving that my birthday fell in August because it coincided with the delivery of the Sears Catalog. Know what that meant? B-day deniro for back to school clothes! Laugh not at my Sears catalog yearnings dear Juicealots, my fashion prowess had not yet been fully developed.
When I think back to those days, the sequence of events usually went something like this: catalog arrives on door step, Victoria stealthily slinks down stairs, swipes it up, and then darts back up to room. *door slams* From that moment on, not a peep was to be heard from me for hours.
Then the list making began:
- turtle neck – check
- corduroy pants – check
- denim jacket – check
- pleather pants – check (I would always try and slip one “extravagant” item by my Mum. But she wasn’t “haaaaavin’ it”)
When I reappeared from my room: face flushed, eyes beaming with excitement #fashionhigh – a trip to the mall inevitably ensued. Back to school dudz were purchased and I thought I was going to be the shit in my corduroy pants and ribbed turtleneck. I have evolved a tad since then: Flare, Lou Lou, Harpers, and of course…the coveted September issue of Vogue, are my go to mags for fall fashion! Lou Lou is my fav mag of the moment. This publication has it all: Trend Reports, the Look for Less, Make-up and Hair Trends, Style tips and much more. If you want an accessible and comprehensive look at Fall fashion then Lou Lou is the magazine for you. In today’s post, I have prepared a collection of tear sheets from my fav fashion mags. Lots of inspiration to get you fired up for Fall!! Enjoy ;)
*aboot – derived from the word about. Means the same thing.
