11 Fall Boots Under $100

Fall Boots 2014 Under $100

There’s something about fall that is comforting as the days of summer dwindle to a close. It is a season with many wonderful perks that we all look forward to when September rolls around: pumpkin-flavored everything, steaming mugs of apple cider, chunky sweaters, Halloween, crisp cool air. Thankfully we have plenty to look forward to. My favorite part has to be that leggings are acceptable and needed once again, but most of all, I get to shake the dust off my stylish BOOTS. And the dawn of any season is always an excuse to restock…at least for me it is.

So here it is, my wish list is a plethora of all of fashions top boot trends—moto, ankle, riding, rain, and over-the-knee. Which ones will you wear this fall?

The Look for Less: J.Crew Camo Shirt and Cargo Jacket

J.Crew look-a-likes at Old Navy

Part of my Sunday routine includes strolling around downtown to check out the cute boutiques and my local J.Crew (I live in a college town). So while it's not budget-friendly, I love checking out the trends and scouring the sales racks (which are surprisingly good, possibly because it's a college town!) This past Sunday I spotted a camo shirt and cargo jacket and was instantly reminded of a camo shirt and cargo jacket I saw just a week ago at Old Navy...

The End of an Era: Juicy Couture to be Sold Exclusively at...Kohl's?! (Here's the Fall 2014 Look Book)


Juicy Couture gets a re-brand and a new home exclusively at Kohl's / coming September 2014

Did I just blow your mind? It's hard to believe that Juicy Couture, the once glamorous LA-brand created by Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor in 1997, would find itself at a budget retailer in 2014. And yet, this story says so much about the state of the fashion industry today. Brands that start out as cool, original, and presumably unique design expressions get bought and sold and licensed until they're really only a glimmer of their former selves - except for behemoth sales figures.
