Nautica Fall 2011

Nautica can help you get layered for fall, with their selection of tie-front tops, striped sweaters and boyfriend cardigans, vests and peacoats. I love the soft, neutral tones of white, grey, tan, navy and black with a pop of orange.

Sorel Fall 2011

Believe it or not, to this day I still do not own a pair of rain boots. I have been looking for a great pair of rain boots for years but they were always either too wide, too big or just not my style. Sorel's Fall 2011 selection of rain boots have answered all my prayers! Sorel boots start at a size 5, have the perfect fit so I can wear them with a skirt or a pair of skinny jeans and don't look like your standard everyday rain boots! They are fabulously stylish, in neutral and fashionably fun colors.

These are my favorite picks for fall:

Since I wear a lot of black, I love how this boot in Chili Pepper red would add a pop of color and keep me warm and dry.
Tofino, $140

Shearling is a popular trend this fall. You can sport these boots on those 'chance of rain' days.
Wicked Work Boot, $215

Looking for a little height? How about 3"? Try this stylish canvas/leather wedge boot (this style starts at a size 6).

Cool Canvas Wedge, $295

These boots will keep you warm and fashionable with faux fur.

Cate the Great, $200

These waterproof, leather, wool lined boots are definitely my favorite and can be worn tall or scrunched down. These boots are perfect for trekking around the city, and can be worn with a dress, leggings or skinny jeans!
Firenzy, $200

Here are some images I took during the fall collection preview

Pour La Victoire / Kelsi Dagger Fall 2011

I instantly fell in love with Pour La Victoire when I had previewed the fall collection, especially since they start with size 5. Pour la Victoire carries everything from high heels, sandals and flats to wedges, boots and handbags.

The fall palette includes neutral colors of beige, brown, grey and black, and bold shades of red, green and blue.

The details are modern and edgy, including buckles, pleating and geometric cut-outs in luxurious leather, snake-embossed leather, suede and haircalf.

The Irina is one of my favorites styles and adds height with comfortability. Irina Tiles, $255, is the newest update, available in white, camel, red and black with a graphic sole. I'm also excited about the patent leather pointy toe pumps with ankle straps.

Pour La Victoire's pumps have a tall slim heel and concealed platform, which is great for lengthening the leg.

If you are looking for fall boots, you'll find platform, open-toe booties and longer length boots that you can wear with just about anything.

I have a weakness for handbags, and I couldn't even choose favorites between the clutches, crossbody bags, satchels and totes. I love them all!

I also previewed Kelsi Dagger, which is just as edgy as Pour La Victoire but also youthful and affordably chic.
