Insisting on Fall

Similar to the rushing seasons thread, I think it is still technically summer in LA, but I'm invoking a Fall vibe anyway. Hopefully the bare legs and arms, along with the short boots, mean I don't look too seasonally inappropriate.

Also wearing a new $2 wrap watch from the flea market... Got extras to sell, so this find actually made me money. ;-) At least that is the girl math standpoint.

    Love the dress, the boots, the necklace, the vest... hehe. Love it all.

    You look perfectly appropriate

  • Mona replied 5 years ago

    You are all ready for fall. I really like the midi dress with booties.

  • JulieJohn replied 5 years ago

    Perfectly pulled together, and virtually willing Fall to arrive. I think that dress is so pretty on you, in a RATE kinda way. It's like a distressed lace pattern, or impressionist urban camo.

    The brown boots and gold dainty necklace lighten the mood, and make you look really approachable. Totally taking notes.

    I bet you get lotsa good comments at work today. So fab!

    I adore this outfit!  You look fantastic!

  • Suz replied 5 years ago

    LOVE this. I don't remember seeing this dress before, or maybe the colour photographed differently in the past. Fab outfit. And I am still in love with your bag and very distressed that Una posted it today. It is tough to resist.

    Yay dress twin! It looks fab on you! I need to start wearing mine more too.

    I love this dress on you, Rae. And Ceit answered my question - I was wondering if it was the same as hers :)

  • Thistle replied 5 years ago

    This looks soooo fab on you!

    Sigh. I am totally fine with fall taking its sweet time to come. Fall and winter and long enough already!

  • Beth Ann replied 5 years ago

    Love this, and the neutral palette doesn't read too wintry.  I'm always amazed, however, by the number of boots I see in LA, since  I can't wear boots when it's above 60!  I lived in SoCal (Arcadia) for 4 years, though, and I remember making my own seasons, and I wasn't alone!

    Great dress, I like the body con fit and longer length with the fun print.  I am also stuck on fall already and trying to wear all my new NAS things. :)

    I think I am going to copy this tomorrow! Thank you for the inspiration.

  • kellygirl replied 5 years ago

    SOO fab. I love the vest over the body con dress. Super flattering and stylish!

  • Adelfa replied 5 years ago

    I love the outfit too, and am hoping I can rock the dress/skirt with booties look this fall... always been too scared to try.

    Re: seasons, DD went to law school at UCLA (but is from Northern California) and reported feeling mistified when, on some magical 70 degree day in Los Angeles, all of her classmates showed up to school in scarves, jackets and boots. Fall had arrived by consensus, but poor DD was completely out of the loop.

    But fall is too lovely not to invent, if you don't really have it.

    You are on a ROLL Rae! This is a fabulous outfit. Love the vest with that gorgeous dress. And the boots are perfect with it.

  • shevia replied 5 years ago

    70 degrees is also considered boot weather in Tel Aviv. I think you look fab whatever you want to call the season.

  • amiable replied 5 years ago

    Ooh - love it!

  • Marley replied 5 years ago

    Great outfit!  I totally "get" insisting on fall - even though we are having the hottest weather of the summer!  We can always pretend!

  • Firecracker replied 5 years ago

    I love the vest over the dress and your mix of neutrals. Great outfit, and you look fab.

  • Vickie KY replied 5 years ago

    I like the whole look. I am really anxious to get into fall wear as well.

  • cheryl replied 5 years ago

    Gorgeous! Love the dress and the bag and the necklace....

  • Janet replied 5 years ago

    Hey, dress triplet! 

    This looks great. This is driving me nuts -- you and Ceit both get to wear your dresses! I can't wait to wear my dress too, but upper 80s with humidity index making it feel like 95 just won't do. Come on, fall! 

  • CocoLion replied 5 years ago

    Fantastic look Rae!  I don't know how you do it all -- full time job, flea market, eBay business ... and never miss a day of great style.  I really admire that.
