Fall Transition

It's been a while since I've done the one look three ways.  With the transition of fall coming in and the new collections finally coming out, I'm finally feeling inspired again.  My husband always runs behind me saying, "What's my motivation" in this best thespian dramatic voice, as he mimics my creativity blocks.  We definitely like to have fun with each other, but it can be frustrating to have blocks in your own style creativity.  I guess I can thank Rebdolls (formally Custom-Plus) for helping me come out of my funk.  This two-piece set is gorgeous and the length of the skirt is to die for.  Do you know how hard it is to get a true midi? In my humble opinion, a true midi comes past the knees and covers the upper calf.  

Style Notes:  You will need to wear some sort of undergarment with this skirt.  It's has a sheerness to it.  I put a mid thigh shaper in black underneath this skirt.  I thought about doing nude, but I thought the black would be best since there is black in the skirt. I ordered a 3X in the set. I did order this on backorder from Rebdolls. I was traveling, but I think it took 2 weeks to get to me.  The gray top was ordered from Babooshka Etsy Shop.  This is a straight size designer that does a lot of oversized pieces.  I ordered the XL in this top.  It's split on each side.  The jersey is a nice weight, stretchy and isn't sheer.  The neon blazer (that's says it's sold out) is from New Look via Asos.  It's not the normal oversized Asos Sizing.  It ran small, in my opinion.  I got a 20, but I feel like I needed a 22. Just not that for any New Look items. Last, but not least, the piece de resistance, the 6th & Lane moto jacket is totally gag worthy.  It's sickening for no good reason.  The fit is great and true to size. I got an 18 in it and it fits perfectly. The leather smells like heaven, the collar, zipper detail, and overall quality is just gorgeous. I featured this on my moto jacket picks a couple of weeks ago and I must say this trumps.  I know this carries a hefty price tag, but I would be sure use some sort of coupon, be it real women dollars, buy one get one free (go in it with a friend LOL), or any of the regular gift cheques. This is definitely a piece that you want to have in your closet this fall.  It's just too beautiful and something that you can wear for the next 10 years.
