We've had a week of weather right around 60 degrees so I've been pulling out all my plaid + flannels for my cozy nights at home. This is the time of year where Collin + I like to see how long we can take it before feeling the need to turn our heat on... it's been a pretty constant 62 degrees in our house.. brrrr. I've already started breaking out my plaids (here + here) but, some of my favorite "shirts" to wear with a circle skirt are actually bodycon wiggle dresses. They're really versatile wardrobe pieces because I can layer over them (skirts) or layer under them (stockings). I actually do this with all my wiggle dresses but the lighter cotton ones make exceptionally good tops and tuck in easily.
Also, if you like dresses 1, 2 and 5 pictured above, use promo code "SAVE20" to get 20% off sitewide on boohoo.com. Boohoo has a lot of cute, inexpensive things, all my favorite Bardot Tops are from there, lots of great staple solids.
I actually had some store credit saved up and just purchased the Gem and I Heel from Miss L Fire's new AW '14 collection. I love the green and I'm normally not a "sparkle" kind of lady but once they're on your feet, you really don't notice all that much. I'm also a huge fan of the little bows + chunky heels! Also, Houndstooth & mustard & subtly checkered blue laces = the perfect heel. I always love things by Poetic Licence but these Language Artist Heels are beyond amazing. For something a little more subtle, I love the look of the leather woven into suede in these Portrait Heels it almost looks like ribbon and it's such a great color red.

I ran across the art for Mad Men: The Illustrated World on Tumblr and had no idea it was a book so I was INCREDIBLY excited when I realized it was. Amazing illustrations. Paper dolls (for multiple seasons, you can have '60s OR '70s Joan). Illustrated hair tutorials with Betty Draper. A guide to '60s mixed drinks with cocktail recipes. Hors d'oeuvre recipes. I don't know that there could be a more perfect book, I snagged mine for $12 on Amazon.... SCORE.
I've been seeing great things about Besame Cosmetics popping up ALL over the internet lately. It's actually the primary cosmetic product featured in American Horror Story this season and you can see it lying on Bette + Dot's dressing table and in Wednesday's episode, Emma Roberts was rocking the Cherry Red, it's all so beautiful, I can't help but want it strictly based on the packaging. Has anyone tried it yet? I'm definitely more of a red lady but those pinks... might convince me to occasionally convert.
