The colors in the ‘Jardin‘ dress are perfect for fall.  The crimson and chartreuse are vibrant, so I paired it with neutral accessories.  I couldn’t believe I had this fedora that just so happened to be the perfect color….match made in fashion heaven.

The ‘Le Day Off’ dress reminds me of the 70s which is very on trend for this 2011 fall and winter season.  To amp up the 70s attitude, I paired it with sky-high wooden platforms and a floppy felt hat.  Don’t forget the chunky knit!  The cream color helps pop the print in the dress.

Gotta love a Mata mini!  When hemlines rise, I lower the heel.  Or loafers in this case.  I paired this ‘Petite Coquette‘ skirt with a ruffled blouse and cardigan on top.  This outfit could take me almost anywhere!  I love Mata’s ‘sunburst‘ necklace here; it matches the wooden buttons down the front of the skirt.

Mata’s ‘Parisian Pant‘ rules.  It’s really refreshing to wear a wide leg after wearing skinny jeans for so long.  They make me want to get all sharp and spiffy looking, as shown here with a Colonel Sanders necktie and leather jacket.

These ‘Ruby Hoop‘ earrings are fantastic for upcoming holiday parties.  They look beautiful against cream.  Pull your hair back to really show them off.  Also, a little cat eye/red lip combo never hurt anyone.

Another jewelry tip:

Pair the ‘Leaf Cuff‘ and ‘Bastille Bracelet‘ together for a sweet arm party.


Hands down, Fall/Winter is my favorite fashion season!  Mata makes it fun with their use of color and flattering silhouettes.  After thought:  Pair any of the outfits above with sweater tights for a toasty layer in the upcoming chill.  After all, it is December now!

I hope you’re inspired to try some new looks and get creative, because the holidays are the perfect time to do so!



P.S. My apologies for the iPhone pics…and the sparsely decorated apartment.  I tried to snaz it up with an angel statue –  I promise better pictures next time!
