hmmm Indian Summer, Fall in New York is gorgeous, the temperatures as opposed to Northern Europe can still get very pleasant, and with the falling leaves and all I get really into a soft color palette and everything cozy, I started to channel Florals,

I actually really really wanted this Mink Pink dress, but since I’m on a budget I had to go on an Ebay search and found this one for about $15, The Roper boots are a $20 Ebay find too,

    Fantastically ’80s! I love it. I saw Yeardley Smith on the Food Network last night wearing an awesome floral dress underneath a cardi w/more floral detailing. It rocked and made me lust for some serious florals. Nice Ebay finds, I need to get a better handle on scoping out those online deals myself (I never want to pay for shipping- ha).
