Bella's Picks for Fall

Bella's Picks: Take a fresh look at Fall staples with timeless appeal. This 90s takes on 1960s style fills the bill.

Fall for me, means tree leaves changing colors, chilly mornings, overcast days and warm woolens. Somehow traditions come into play, more so in the Autumn, when it comes to fashion too. Perhaps, because Autumn, more than any other season, cues us to the cycle of seasons, draws us to the inevitable return of what already was, what went before and ultimately, steers us towards what will be.

OUTFIT POST: tall socks, super high tops

SUPER HIGH ME: pairing tall socks and high tops with a long sweater for a casual look.
Seattle spring means you wanna look fresh and spring-y but still need to stay warm. It's usually a bit chillier than it looks. No problem when you've got a fun and funky thrifted sweater to pair with a super old pair of thigh high socks (first worn here!) and a extra funky pair of kicks: super high, high tops sneaks.

A Woman's Dress

The detail of this dress is a lot like me: bright, cheerful, perhaps a tad too loud, worn and a bit flawed because of it. It a wonderful frock made from stiff cotton woven fabric, with added charms of white embroidered trim. There's an extra thrill: the sweet detail of white thread tassels attached to the drawstring belt.

Here's a selfie I took sometime last month wearing the red dress, pairing it with a brightly Ethnic flavored shawl-sweater thingy. I felt quite fashionably Internationale.
