Lace in Autumn

I am over-the-moon excited to share a beautiful shop I've only recently discovered (most of you have probably already heard of it) called: SHOPBOP . Shopbop is essentially a shop dedicated to aquiring the most beautiful and current designer pieces to showcase and sell in thier shop. They carry one of my favorite brands, as I've metioned before, FREE PEOPLE . Which is where this timeless dress comes from by the way! It was one thing to fall in love with it when I saw it online, but it was a whole other thing to see it in person too. The material is so soft and comfortable, the ruffles and lace so vintage and romantic... and the free people socks I've paired it with are just as soft and lovely! I'm also wearing a UO hat and vintage purse, however, with fall approaching, I think this dress and socks along with some dainty tights, some tassled jeffrey campbell loafers, this casual coat and handsome hat .

I suppose that's what makes fall fashion so fun, the layering! It gives so much more options with our outfits! Not to mention they add to the feeling of being "cozy" wherever you go. This dress is really great for transitioning into fall, although it is a thin lace (a slip or bralet is required underneath), it is long sleeved, soft, and so fun and easy to layer! I look forward to seeing all the different ways I can wear it this season ^.^

I'm very excited to share another front row shop treasure with you. This adorable blouse (which is currently on sale), is a very welcome addition to my closet. I paired it with this checks skirt from forever21 and a pair of thigh high socks for rather  a "school-girl" look, which never gets old in my opinion. As a comic book reader, I find the "POP!" on this blouse completely charming. I mentioned before how unique FrontRowShop is, even with something as classic as a white collar shirt-they've managed to add quirky details which makes thier product stand out! 
I'm a little sad the weekend is over already, it passed much too quickly and the work week  seems so looong. Oh well, coffee, sweaters and good company make the time pass sweeter (I do try my best to have at least two out of three of these at all times). Have a happy lazy sunday!

If this is the first you're hearing of this shop 1: I'm sorry you've missed out, 2: TODAY IS YOUR LUCKY DAY BECAUSE I WILL INTRODUCE IT TO YOU. Let me ask you something, do you like shoes? Of course you do, you're a human aren't you? This store has a crazy variety of different shoe styles, all of which are to die for. I made my own little fall shoe wishlist with MY favorites from the shop:

Autumn Chills

 Sweater weather has arrived, and I couldn't be more thrilled. Exploring new places with the cool autumn wind and a coffee in hand is perfection. As some of you have probably noticed...I'm prone to jewlery as of late. Hoever, most of the jewlery I'm wearing has been thrifted or passed down, except for my gorgeous watch from DanielWellington (by the way, shop there anywhere from now until september 30th you can get 15% off using the Code: curios-doll  at the checkout). I honestly don't even take it off, it gows with everything and ads an extra charm to my outfits . You'll have noticed that even when I'm wandering through fields and forests, I'm still in a dress or skirt. For me, it is more comfortable. I loathe wearing pants, so even on expeditions, I stick to my typical feminine style, which doesn't slow me down or inconvinience me in the least. Looks can be so decieving that way...a dress gives the illusion I tried really hard to look nice that morning, when in reality I like them because it's one piece of clothing, and nothing sticks to your legs (except tights which are like a second skin to me). For this advanture I paired two of my favorite fall items from last year. The colors reflect the coming season well, and the knits kept me warm through my adventures.

Autumn WIsh List

One of the very best things about autumn is the fashion. Who doesn't like being swaddled and cozyily surrounded by knits? I am currently obsessed with Urban Outfitters new fall pieces (most of the items demonstrated above are items currently available here). I wanted to show what my specific autumn essentials are: 
1. gray wool hat (As I've yet to require a gray hat and this color is perfect)
2. black loafer: while I'm typically all about boots and booties during the fall, I also love the look of a loafer paired with fall colored tights and dresses.
3.go-to knitted sweater: a self-explanatory must.
4.a collection of over the knee socks (one can never have too many)
5. Plaid. Plaid anything. Plaid anywhere.
Not to mention anything forest green, burgundy or burnt orange *
