I stumbled upon some great fall pieces that will do double duty on my cruise. Check out what I purchased and how I styled them for two seasons.Read More
One of my favorite movies is Almost Famous. I love the story, the characters, the dialogue, the music...literally everything. Truth be told, if I'm having writer's block, this is the movie that gets me out of it every single time. The styling in this film captures exactly what was happening in early 7o's fashion. Kate Hudson's iconic character, Penny Lane, dreams of going to Morocco and her style in this film stays with you long after the credits end. It's that gorgeous shearling coat. That coat is her armor. It's her safety net. It's the piece that transformed her from Lady Goodman into Penny Lane.
I like to think Penny would approve of today's boho-inspired looks. Lanvin's entire Fall 2015 collection, with its nod to Morocco, seemed designed with Penny in mind. This season is full of brocade, shearling, flared denim, crop tops, suede, velvet, band tees, maxis and more. It's the modern take on the 70's that make these pieces look less vintage and more like Penny all grown up.

Continuing down the road of fall trends, let's talk about one of my favorites. I like to call it Victorian Moto. It's one part goth, one part Victorian lace & ruffles, one part rock and roll and a dash of Red Queen for good measure. Next to this season's 90's redux, this is my other favorite trend. My own personal style falls somewhere between these two, so if you know me, this is absolutely no surprise. I am particularly obsessed with Chelsea boots, particularly the ones of the Saint Laurent variety. They tend to be a little more mod, but they're so sleek and sexy with their almond-shaped toe and barely-there heel. This is the bootie I want to wear every day with a pair of black faux leather leggings or distressed skinny jeans and a relaxed blazer or cape. Now you know my fall uniform.
Here's how I would style those dreamy Saint Laurent boots. Click on the "+" to get more information on the pieces in the collage below.
