I absolutely love fall fashion!

Things I got/want for the fall/winter seasons:
Moto leather/wool jacket (on the top of my list)

Fitted military jacket
Statement coat (for winter)- maybe a pop of color, or maybe one that just really makes a statement

Moto boots (WANT)
Ankle booties
Pretty sure long knit sweaters are in too, but they look weird with coats
chunky sweaters and scarves
Infinity scarves
Patterned jeans
Color blocking with dark earthy tones
I don't know if equestrian boots are still "in" but I'm on the hunt for a new pair in black

Boxy/structured/Rectangular shoulder bags

Love your list :)

I'm also looking for black equestrian boots and chunky sweaters/scarves. Love me some layers.

Plus:

-long black menswear inspired coat a la Kasia street style
-black leather leggings/skinny jeans
-chambray shirts with slight unexpected patterns
-statement necklaces
-stacked heel booties with a toe cap (preferably calf-hair in black or leopard print)
-high waisted black tapered trousers
-boyfriend jeans (I have NEVER owned a pair)
-Celine or Chanel bag <3
-V-neck cashmere sweaters in rich jewel tones for layering over button downs
-chunky knee/thigh highs in neutral colours for under tall boots

I'm sure I have more but that's all from the top of my head :)

Does anyone know where I can get good LONG sweaters under 50$? Preferably something that would cover my butt so I can wear them with leggings. Or, at the very least, not end at my waist -____-

Bought these recently but they're hardly fall fashion
And insanely painful... like no amount of alcohol could cover up the pain
(my fault for not breaking them in) :facepalm:

Oh my goodness! Great taste :) I have been eyeing these for weeks. But, I'm picking mine from abroad because they're slightly cheaper so have to wait a bit before I get my hands on these babies. :p

I will go for some beautiful handshoes, handshoes, handshoes (is it the right English word?). Temperatures under 15Degress and my fingers suffer from Raynaud Syndrom.

I am not the biggest fashionista, so I will only look out for a new head scarf. I have most winter clothes in black, so I would consider them as timeless, and I save money for new clothes.

I have all the outerwear and clothing I really need to get me through the fall, but I did make a couple purchases recently.

This dress:

It is so cute on, and the cage detailing fits my shoulders perfectly. It is a bit of a muumuu though so I definitely like it better belted. I have a little leather waist belt from Diesel which works well with it, though I have to punch another hole in it due to getting tinier recently. I plan on wearing it with a pair of tights and leather jacket and leather boots, which I think will be very cute for fall.

Also, I have recently adopted the philosophy that no outfit is really complete without appropriate lingerie. I have some things in the mail and soon my first really ritzy lingerie set will be complete...

I already had the waist cincher/waspie thing but now the plunge bra (a slightly different cut from the one pictured here) and matching brief are in the mail, and I am sooo excited. Three cheers for AP's great sales!

Definitely a trench coat! But it rains so much here I need one of those very ugly rain jackets to protect my hair when I bike.. :(

Other than that, an infinity scarf, a pair of skinny jeans and warm, fuzzy boots (à la Uggs, but less ugly)
Oh an also a nice big sweater, and a pair of big socks.. :D

Also, any suggestions from you lovely ladies about a place to get good quality black leather riding boots without completely breaking the bank? I'm always tempted by designer brands because I feel there's a better chance that they'll be made well, but I don't have a huge fall shopping budget.

Does anyone have suggestions for a brand that sells great looking coats that accommodate long arms?
