more fall fashion, friends! are you ready for it? let’s go!
fashion editorials. you have to hand it to the brits. or maybe i’m just an anglophile {and a francophile} and prefer the european view of things…especially fashion.
elle uk recently featured stunner coco rocha for their breathtakingly beautiful spread on the must have autumn classics. the scarf. the animal print. the cigarette pant. the cashmere sweater. the ankle boot. the white shirt. the breton top. and the leather jacket, to name a few.


the styling by anne marie curtis and photography by david vasiljevic are in a league of their own and remind me of scenes from a sultry, smoky 60’s jazz club. hot.
for me, i cannot live without my delicious cashmere sweaters, french striped tops, chic ankle boots and a wear-with-anything khaki trench. they are my foundation for any outfit.
what are the must have classics in your wardrobe this season, my glamourous friends? 
three cheers for fall!

  1. Such a fabulous editorial! I’m with you-my classic trench, french stripe shirts, cigarette pants and a few classic dresses are my wardrobe staples. Oh, and a good pair of black ballet flats.
