Fall - One Outfit

If I could buy only 1 new outfit this season
it would definitely be this one...


the reason being that I live in a climate which is never extremely 
cold for long periods, Houston.  
So this 1 outfit would do many things for me.
The turtleneck sweater could be paired with almost anything 
I already own, so can the leather pants.  
Leather is fabulous when you travel. 
The big poncho/cape/ruana can be worn with jeans 
or a longer skirt...
Escada even showed it with a silk satin dress in the 
same tones & it looks so new.

Further, if I go somewhere cold, like Vail, Colorado, New York City,
Chicago I can wear a big coat & throw the cape over the coat,
wrap a pashmina around my neck and/or over my head & I'm warm.

The final reason, Escada apparel is made with the finest fabrics 
known to man, nothing wrinkles ever...
and the designs are pretty much timeless...
they do have a lot of extremely edgy things in each
collection though, just depends on your personal style.

Also, I can promise you, if you buy black from any of the big-name 
designers it will stay BLACK, unlike the really inexpensive things.
Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Escada, Tse.
Buy a black silk jersey tee and you will have it the rest of your life.

more to come around Labor Day

I will be guest posting for Simone
at The Bottom of the Ironing Basket
August 22 & 23
& there will be a fabulous
one of my pieces of jewelry, which can
be worn as a necklace or a belt.

My dear Marsha,
I so need individual attention when it comes to dressing. I love all those beautiful styles but tend to buy the SAME things! I love the turtleneck and poncho. I also love the leather pants but would NEVER be able to get into them and look good or feel comfortable. But you... I could see your sweet self in those. I am always looking for fabric that doesn't make me look like a wrinkled mess!
Could you do a post on jeans for the "fuller figure"? I need to find a pair that fits, while I am getting into better shape.
You are my most fabulous and fashionable friend!

Good Morning Marsha Sweetie...
Oh I can see you definitely in this one. This says "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha" all over it. Have you already ordered it?

I have always loved poncho/capes. They are so versatile. I have a couple that I drag out here in the winter. Believe it or not even in the desert sometimes we need a little covering.

I pray you are well. Have a gorgeous Sunday sweetie.

Country hugs and much love, Sherry

I agree completely with you on this choice. I have seen it on Net-a-porter and love it. It really could work in so many ways and the gray tones are something I always tend to gravitate towards. I hope your weekend went well and the start to your week is smooth sailing. =) Have a great week.

I love the essence of this style; it says Fall, fashion and favorite! I love the colors, the hints of the classics!

Oh this is super stylish, love it. Yes it's worth getting items that actually stay black!!

I definitely have shopping on my mind these days, and am in the mood for some new clothes- but I don't think I am ready for fall yet. Summer has been so great, I'm still enjoying it too much!!

Marsha, just my style... gorgeous! hope you are well.

Nuit said...

I LOOOVE this outfit!!! too bad it's crazy hot all year round here... on second thought, I would buy it anyway. And I totally agree on the black designer clothes, they STAY black forever.


Mary Jo from TrustYourStyle said...

I agree, this is a wonderful addition to a fall wardrobe and the separates can be worn so many ways. I have an Escada jacket and it truly is the most exquisite quality.

Hope you are having a wonderful week so far!

I just love it, Marsha! It would work very well here in NY. Come and visit! And I'm actually starting to get a bit excited for fall. It happens to me every August when I get a little tired of the same summer clothes and start to look through the September magazines :)

Hope you're doing well, sweetheart! xoxo
