I am so excited to be writing another blog post with my friend and fellow blogger Cathy Williamson. We always have a blast shooting with our fabulous photographer Mary Summers Hafner and finding great clothes at Tootsie’s Dallas store was the easiest part. Thanks to store manager Nerisssa von Helpenstill and my friend and sales associate Betsy Gallagher for helping us pull everything together. The fall trends are many and varied this year and my motto is always “Fashion is meant to be fun!” Cathy and I tried on several outfits (really awesome playing dress up) and came up with some current trends to feature. Cathy makes everything fun and you have to check out her blog, The Middle Page. She is a great inspiration for me in many areas, not just blogging. I have seen her bravely tackle breast cancer with a smile and a huge heart for helping others. She loves fashion but her biggest mission is offering hope and dignity to women facing the obstacles ahead. Just look at that smile!!!
I am ready for a girl’s night out in Citizen’s of Humanity like leather jeans. (Rocket high rise skinny) This is one of my favorite brands and the coated denim (like leather) is so comfy! The puffer jacket is a huge trend and who could resist this Alice and Olivia with a fur collar!! Fur (real or fake) and feathers are everywhere this season. Anything with shimmer and shine, especially gold, will add pizzaz to your look and I couldn’t resist this Alice and Olivia gold sweater with a sequin collar (detachable I might add). You could dress this up or down. Remember, anything can go with jeans these days. Don’t be afraid to sparkle.
Tootsie’s has the best accessories and a variety of price points which always appeals to my budget$. Check out this perfect night on the town clutch from Kayu. Velvet with gold metallic stars is the best!!! One of my favorite jewelry designers is Alexis Bittar and these earrings are a must. I would wear them all the time. And I really need some new sunnies!!! Love these updated Krewe Du Optic shades!! Cool!! You can never have too many sunglasses and Tootsie’s has a great selection of the most updated looks. These are great too.
You can check out the details about Cathy’s outfit on her blog The Middle Page. You can also call Tootsie’s Dallas for any information on our outfits. 2124-696-9993 I love Cathy’s fun black and white fur from an amazing newish label Cinq a Sept. Be sure to check out the other pieces in this very updated and creative line. The bow blouse is great for jeans, girls night out or a serious meeting. I love everything that Alice and Olivia makes and this blouse might need to end up in my closet!!! Cathy”s velvet wide leg jeans are all the rage from J Brand. I might add that the chunky heel bootie is a must and we are both wearing our own versions. My bootie is by Isola and I bought it last year when I realized I had a major void in my shoe closet. I like this bootie because of the gold hardware and detail, also a huge trend. Everything seems to be decorated this year. Tootsie’s has the best shoe collection and I highly recommend that you check it out. They have the latest trends at different price points. Here is a great bootie option.
