Fall Fashion Shopping Wishlist!

Finally, I know for a long time I’ve been promising to hit you guys with a Fall Fashion Wishlist post! Well it’s time! Normally I hate online shopping when it’s a wishlist but the holidays are coming around so maybe this post can serve as a public wishlist for people to know what I want this holiday season. hint hint.

Here is what’s on my Fall wishlist!

-Leather Jacket; I mean who can say no to a leather jacket. It goes with everything and can turn your daytime work clothes into a great outfit for dinner and a thrash punk show. Yes, you are probably going to a punk show after your day at work.

Corduroys- Now I know people think think that cords should have gone out with grunge in the 90s but not me! More specifically I’m drawn to this berry color. It really is the appropriate fall pant since 1991 if you ask me.

similar options; Blank Denim, Rag & Bone, J Brand

Graphic Tees- Now I love a good graphic tee as much as the next girl. I especially love graphic tees that are super awesome and from local designers in the LA area. This “trill shit” shirt by Eighty5Keys is from right here in the City of Angels. Erin, one of the designers gifted me one so check out the instagram to see what I style it with. Of course we also can’t forget UNIF.

Boots- It just wouldn’t be fall without a new pair of boots. Fall is not fall without Dr Martens. Use all that crappy rain and snow to break your boots in and they will be with you for the long haul. I swear by them.

Similar options: ASOS, All Saints, Rag & Bone, Jeffrey Campbell, Cheap Monday (loove these)

Hardware- Yes, I’m one of those people who wears sunglasses in fall and winter. Including when I lived on the East Coast. The snow does blind you. Who doesn’t want another reason to stock up on more accessories?

Similar options; Ray-Ban, Alexander Wang, Karen Walker, ASOS

Hope you all enjoyed my Fall fashion picks! Maybe I could make this a regular thing! I do love to online browse for more outfit inspiration.

Shopping Haven: Aloha Rag in Hawaii

One of my favorite stores for years has been Aloha Rag in Hawaii. The boutique started in Hawaii and recently opened a store in New York. Sean, our intern in NYC was headed to Hawaii last month and it was a perfect opportunity to see where all the madness started! Sean met up with Makoto Kambara, the vice president of Aloha Rag for a tour around the shop. Divided into mens, womens, new arrivals, and accessories there are so many different options to choose from. One of the most interesting aspects is the merchandising of the shoes below the racks to complete the look. A detail that many shoppers seem to overlook when searching for just singular pieces. It’s always great think of a look as a whole when browsing in a shop. Filled with designers like Alexander Wang, Proenza Schouler, and Rick Owens the buyers really stick to an avant garde contemporary theme of the shop. There really is nothing better than a clean presentation of all your favorite designers.

If you’re in NYC or Hawaii definitely check out Aloha Rag!
