Bend for Trends

Ok, so nearly everyone's fashion advice for fall is Don't Buy Anything Because You Will Feel Guilty. False! There are two things you should invest in: classic pieces that will last you a lifetime and off-the-wall trendy, fabulous pieces you drool over. Seriously -fashion this season is kind of all over the place as far as "what to buy." Just know that the 80's will be back in your closet in a very literal way, from zebra prints to shoulder pads (egads! but really) to neons and brights. So buy what makes you happy, whether that's a classic LBD from Valentino or those 6" suede Brian Attwoods. To get you ready and excited for the season to come, I've gone through's huge accessory report of the best fall accessories and whittled it down to a few things I think you should look out for. Keep in mind these are FANTASY pieces - knock offs will come fast and hard, I'm sure!
