Top 10 Trends for Fall in My Opinion....

hardly seems fitting that the Spring 2015 shows are underway
and WE are just now embracing Fall/Holiday ourselves.

here in Houston we're embracing torrential downpours so a change in season
MUST be imminent.

not to say we are seeing temps drop, but enough of a change to have me thinking this
past week about what is going to be important in updating our wardrobes.

a new hair-do
this, to me, is one of the most important things on the list of must-do's after the long hot summer.

but, that's not a Fall trend and doesn't count.

taken from Burberry Prorsum the 
huge blanket poncho
51" x 50 "

around here this is almost all we need for winter most of the time,
however, when we travel or when it really freezes here in Texas these pieces
are fabulous as they work well over our coats too.

the super slit skirt

from Balmain at Bergdorf-Goodman
the way I love to see a look finished off:  polished & sleek

everyday leather
don't you love this combo, with the red and tturquoise?
the plaid shirt?

fur accents
on anything/everything

you won't see me in this exact iteration, however, I do have fox flings that I dearly love, and
it's my only nod to fur any longer.  am I forgiven?

I know, could this possibly be true?
but with many shades of gray arriving on the fashion scene too these colors will work well,
and look new, so give it a quick try in front of your mirror.

ladylike leopard

you guys already know animal prints will NEVER totally go out of fashion anytime soon,
so if you haven't already jumped on board now is the time, seriously.
& every shop from here to China has leopard!


roberto cavalli

Burberry Prorsum
THAT bag is certain to be THE iconic bag of the season
or a variation of that bag, but you know a big tapestry/painted carpetbagging bag of some kind.

Nina Ricci

Mod Squad


the one I love the most

Ralph Lauren Black Label
Tom Ford


Victor & Rolf

also the gray is really really BIG,
perhaps as big as it was about 10-12 years ago, so go into your closets and
see what's back there that will work again, I'll bet you'll be surprised.

Gray Matters

which one will you be wearing ?

  1. GRAY for certain!To match my hair sparkles!

  2. My favorites are the pinstripes, the pastels, the blooms and the monochromatic!
    Hope you have a wonderful week ahead, Marsha!

  3. Such gorgeous fashions. Like you, I LOVE the monochromatic look - chic and sophisticated, and the leather in unexpected ways is gorgeous - adore the touches of leather on a blouse or sweater…happy Monday, Marsha!!

  4. Grey as a background and neutral -- it works for rooms as well as clothes --very restful and softening, and somehow also perks things up. Lovely fabrics in those outfits shown, but I do wish the models didn't all look like terminally depressed, androgynous teenyboppers. Anorexic, too.

  5. I LOVE "lady like leiopard"!!! I just bought a leopard jacket to wear with Pants. It is an inside jacket, not an overcoat. I wear alot of jackets in Fall, Winter and Spring. I love the ponchos but being "vertically challenged" they look like they are swallowing me. I will wear a wrap type scarf. I love what you have shown us and hope you get a little relief from your heat! XO

  6. Hello Marsha

    You have made a beautiful selection. The Ralph Lauren model in pink is the essence to good health and beauty. I also love Valentino.

    Wishing you a great week
    Helen xx

  7. I like all these looks (for different reasons), but I don't think I could carry off any of them! (I'm just too shrimpy and the chest is too ample.) But... I love red! I love gray! (I've seen some beautiful items in gray on the pages of fashion magazines and even in the Sunday Times. Delicious.)

  8. love these fall styles! thanks for dropping by :)

  9. Marsha...the first thing I want to do for the winter season is buy a pair of boots...than get my hair done...I love the long vests and I haven't worn a cape since the 70s!

  10. Ralph Lauren for SURE and Cavalli is absolutely gorgeous....
    By the way,Marsha all choices of you are so good and useful,really!
    LOVE poncho from Burberry Prorsum and those bag also of Burberry Prorsum is amazing!
    Indeed,very variable grey color for today....
    I like grey with very soft touch( not so dark).
    And this outfit #4 is also great( the first one with stripes)



Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, each of them mean so much to me. After all, the interaction is the reason we blog. xx's
