Off the Rack: September Shoes at T.J.Maxx

Fall shoes at T.J.Maxx

'Tis the season for fall shoe shopping, and my local T.J.Maxx store has me wanting all sorts of new styles that I don't really need…or do I? I saw all the latest "trends" as it were, from moto boots to combat boots to buckle-embellished to tall two-tone riding boots. There were also edgy ankle strap heels and pointy toe pumps, including some convincing Valentino "Rockstud" knockoffs by Rampage (keep scrolling for the photo). Not a bad option if you love the look! I didn't buy anything on this trip because I had my son in tow and he was all "hurry up, mom!" Just kidding, he can't talk - yet.

Oh! And I nearly ran into another shopper with my stroller when I spotted an entire rack full of Rebecca Minkoff bags (scroll down for the photo), I kid you not! Everyone always asks me where I live and what store I shop at, and while I'd rather not say (I'm paranoid like that, must be a generational thing - not having grown up with the internet and all), I will say that I do not live in an upscale area. I'm in Connecticut about two hours from New York City. So I think my store just gets lucky!

Have you been to T.J.Maxx this season? Scoop up anything fab?

Here's What I Love From the Leaked Isabel Marant x H&M Lookbook

Isabel Marant x H&M

The Isabel Marant pour H&M collection lookbook leaked earlier this week (you can see all the items for men, women and children on here). Here's what I love: The cropped embellished jacket, tie-dye pants, studded knit pumps and suede fringe boots. I'm also loving a lot of the men's clothes, like the tribal print sweaters and cozy pullovers - things us girls can easily borrow and wear with ease. I don't see any wedge sneakers but I'm not surprised considering the designer has said she gets super annoyed by copy-cats. On the other hand, wouldn't this be her chance to make a legit dupe for less?

The limited edition Isabel Marant Pour H&M collection will be available from November 14, 2013, in around 250 stores worldwide and online - yessss.

Here are some highlights modeled by top models Milla Jovovich, Alek Wek, Lou Doillon, and Malgosia Bela. Which pieces are you excited about?
