Ready or not….Fall is here…at least in stores that is.
It is hard to even fathom black, sweaters, boots and scarves when it is 100+ degrees outside….welcome to the fashion world! I have always been somewhat of a buy now wear now type shopper (except at market)…but I used to always miss some of the most sought after pieces of the season by waiting until it gets cold here in TX.
Here are the must have items for every fashionistas wardrobe for Fall 2010…don’t miss out!
Leopard print was in just about every collection I saw at Fall market back in February. From textured furs to trendy accessories (and everything else in between), leopard is a must have for Fall. I ordered my fair share of leopard this season so you know where you can find it!
Remember, animal print can be flawlessly chic or turn you into a fashion disaster. Try limiting your ensemble to either one garment or a fab accessory to let out your inner animal! Pair a leopard blouse with a clean pair of denim or a neutral pant….or throw on a scarf to jazz up your look!

The color of the season is army green!
Army green is not new this season, but it is still a must have for Fall! This color seems to have some serious staying power in the fashion world…we have been seeing it show up on runways for several years. A couple of good things about adding this neutral color to your wardrobe is 1) it goes with everything…black, brown, beige, and denim and 2) you can dress it up or down for the easy day to night look. Wear it by day with your favorite boots or gladiators and throw on your bronze metallic wedges for a night on the town. This color has been around for many seasons…if you don’t already have it, this Fall is the time to add it to your wardrobe.

LEATHER…..available in just about all items of clothing. You will find leather pants, skirts, shorts, jackets, capes and vests. I mean EVERYTHING leather for Fall 2010! Of course everyone needs a staple leather jacket in their wardrobe. My favorites from this season are Mike & Chris and Poleci….Mike and Chris has arrived, but you will have to wait until October for Poleci…think buttery soft black leather with a touch of fur!

FURRRRRR…while I realize how controversial fur can be in todays world…I am not one that is opposed to the real thing; however I kept it clean for my Fall purchases and ordered the look for less! There was so much fur for Fall that it was hard to choose which pieces to buy. Here is my favorite that you will see here at MEADOW ! If you read my blog regularly…you already know this is my favorite….I think I have posted pictures of it two or three times since I found this treasure in their NY showroom!

The DVF Octavia is a clog/wedge combo…which was also done by See by Chloe…another favorite!
