Did I tell you?

..that I love the fall. That means Halloween and Dia de los Muertos is just around the corner. This is my favorite time of year. We are starting to get cool nights and cool mornings here in Connecticut. Time to break out the sweaters!!! I wanted to share with you some of the things I have my eye on for the fall...
Fun and colorful sweaters...

Plaid. It's back! And I actually really like it. It looks like something I can wear on a cool fall day with leggings and my boots while eating my chocolate chip pancakes.

This is a plaid coat I found at Anthropologie...

I also need some fall dresses and I love this Rachel Pally Dress in Terracotta. I am thinking about painting my artroom Terracotta with white trim. It can give me a nice southwestern feel.

This dress would be perfect under a big sweater. You can easily take this from the summer into fall.

How about accessories and fun cosmetics?

Nordstrom is going to be premiering Luna Twilight cosmetics around November. Can't wait...
The lip venom is available now: Click here
The formula contains a venom-tinged conditioning oil on top and a rich red lip stain...

Did I tell you? I love boots. I have my favorite Frye boots, but I just loved these studded boots..

The other item I have my eyes on our these frilly and colorful scarves...

And these silk skull scarves are perfect for a fall gift. Click here for details.

And last but not least I need a new black or navy velour sweatsuit. Its perfect for the cool weekends I feel like lounging around in the art room.

I hope you like some of my fall wishlist...

Below are just a few more I have been working on.
