TREND TROTTING THURSDAY- fall shooties


Call it booties or shooties, these ankle-high boots have enjoyed a noticeable amount of popularity amongst our gal pals. They are everyday neutrals with an edge,  but it's their versatility that accounts for most of it's popularity. Stay ahead of the crowd by wearing them with anything and everything in your closet. 
Today Darci of Diary of a Southern Shopper and I have partnered together to show you two ways of  nailing this shoe  trend. Both Darci and I share a common fetish for one thing- 'SHOES' ! No one could have been a better co-host for today's edition of TTT. It's apparent from her blog that this chica takes her passion for shoes really seriously. 






I'M WEARING :

floral coat- via Macy's ( buy another option )
scarf- gift from mOmsimilar )
bag- Aldo rise  ( similar from H&Mdesigner option )


Hope you like how Darci and I styled our favorite fall footwear !
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

IT'S IN THE BAG- brought to you by CRAZY & CO.

As far as I can recollect, I have never posted phone pics on the blog. Honestly, when doing outfit shoots, clicking pics from my phone is always the last thing on my mind. I can either focus on the camera or on phone pics and the former always seems of greater significance than the latter.  But today's post is an exception. Well, the new IPhone could be the predominant reason and my forgetting to take the camera, the second. I had no choice but take pics on my new IPhone 6. Not the greatest as I am still in the process of learning. 
Changing gears, let's talk about the bag, that I am carrying. It is from an online shop called Crazy&Co.   ( A lil secret, I have legal rights to call this company  mine .... )  
This e-commerce store specializes in handmade, exquisite, one-of-a-kind accessories from around the world and this bag featured today is no exclusion. It is hand painted by an Indian artist. The base is coated canvas that has been treated to give it a structured finish.  It is a statement piece, featuring the Indian God of success : GANPATI ! The colors are so versatile that styling this piece would be a breeze. 
Since I wanted the bag to take the center-stage, I decided to keep the rest of my look neutral with a sequin jacket atop, for that hint of glamour. Looking at the pics, I now realize,  could have done a better job with the pictures, but thanks to the rain that dampened all my planning.....so better luck next time !


Ganpati Clutch  - CRAZY&CO

Crazy&Co. is now offering a Halloween special, 20% discount on everything and for everyone ( even international customers ) , just use code ' TRICKORTREAT' at checkout. 






Thanks for bearing with my poorly-lit-pics .
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.

THE GRAYSCALE - brought to you by SHEINSIDE.COM



Sorry for the radio silence on the blog. I have been trying hard to keep my blog posting uninterrupted , but admittedly the entire packing for the trip thingy and a few other new projects up my sleeves, is taking a toll over my timely performance. I hope things will get better by next week !
Nonetheless, I was able to squeeze in time to shoot this look. Work is work afterall, and there is no excuse for not doing it ! This tweed coat was a gift from Sheinside.com. My partnership with sheinside.com continues and this marks the third month of this ongoing collaboration. Head over here and here to see the other looks featuring sheinside.com clothing.
Talking about this coat today- " so it is warm, relaxed  textured, fits true to size and is well constructed ". It has a subtle gold weaving throughout the bodice. To say that this outwear is everything and is the most coveted fall piece in my closet, would be an understatement. It was love at first sight and I can see myself pairing them with pretty much everything. Today the look is grayish, kind-of monochromatic,  but brainstorming for a more color-rich look is underway. So stay tuned for a color burst, soon on the blog. Meanwhile head over here, to shop more of this brand. 



I'M WEARING :

gray coat - Sheinside.com ( buy ) , ( under $100 )
printed top- via Piperlime ( similar from Gilt.com )
cords- Gap ( designer option )
bag- Kate SpadeMK option )
