Can There Really Be Just One Piece For Fall?

September 20, 2011

I don’t love to write about this because it’s so subjective.  I mean really, who can say what piece you or I or Suzie Q needs?  But, with the change of each season there will be a bazillion articles on what you have to buy for that season.  So, I write.

But, this time I’m cheating and commenting on a contest Lucky Magazine did on what the one item was we needed to buy.  They began with  16  different pieces and as the votes came in whittled it down to just one.   I like it.   In fact, I have one.  My problem is I bought it right after my first breast cancer surgery, just 3 days later.  Looking back I was probably still under the anesthesia influence plus I was at the beach and who needs leather down there…what was I thinking??!!  As I got sicker, I didn’t go out much therefore didn’t have the opportunity to wear it.  Who even knows if  I’ll like it when I pull it out in a couple of weeks?   Oh well.

So, below is the contest diagram….I’ll only comment on 2 or 3.

I don’t believe the bag choices were great.  A good leather tote if you’re a working gal that is carrying “stuff” is practical.  A printed day bag, not so much.

And the poncho/army coat choice was a bit of a head scratcher.  But, the poncho and sweaters are very chic for fall.

And to me, the bootie wins by a landslide.  Unless you consistently have evening events to attend.  I mean, they said” sky high”.  What does that mean to you?  It means nighttime to me!


And then there’s the winner.  I must say, it is a piece you will treasure.  If you buy for fit and quality ( I have no idea if I did!  I need to get that thing out!) it is an item you will go to time and again.  Over the lbd or with your jeans, either works.  A motorcycle style leather ( buy leather) jacket will up your cool factor tremendously.

Here’s the link to the whole article.  What do you think, is it a winner?

As always, call me if you need any help choosing your fall buys!
