Cravings for fall :)

As you know, while you guys are waiting for summer to start, we, latin-americans are getting surrounded of fall what to wear guides, fall campaigns and stuff like that. Fall is supossed to start by the end of march and winter by June. Anyway, it's not always like that and in the last years, hot weather in the morning usually stays until May (sunny days and sometimes we get a little cold at night) and it's in June when things really start to change (although we don't reach below zero temperatures, only temperatures between 12ºC and 15ºC).

That's why, in the last couple of days, I have been making a list of the key things i want for 'fall', that as stated before must include fall (runway fall 2008) items and also some singular pieces for sunny days (that's why i also considered some spring pieces from spring's runway for this year). Of course, inspiration came also from all the lovely street style sites out there (i believe the coolest trends start on the street) and from some of my fellow bloggers too ;)


Some of these may take a while to be found, but i know I will. The search will start this weekend (malls, thrift stores...) and will keep on going until i get at least, most of the chosen items. I'll try to keep you updated on this, and as there are nearly 16 items in my list, I'll take it easy, I don't want to be broke, so I will also try to get them on affordable prices.

I like the bag and the floral dress. I think they work as well for spring AND autumn.

ambika dijo...

Nice list. It's interesting to see the reversal of seasons and how that affects trends in other regions.

The Seeker dijo...

I think you chosed great stuff.

I always have this doubt about your seasons, your trends now are F/W 2008/2009 or F/W 2007/2008?

I'm guessing this is quite a common opinion but all the stuff is lovely. All of it I either have or want basically.

my staples for fall have been brown ankle boots, a black leather jacket, and black jeans (three things that are already on your list)
btw that floral dress is pretty.

fashionfake dijo...

Haha your needs list is almost identical to mine. We're going into Autumn(Fall) here too in Australia, but it still is hot as it ever was.
Where did you get the pics for the items for?

jen dijo...

i really like the way you edit your pictures...how do you create that shadow to make it three dimensional?

Aisha dijo...

Fashionfake : The pictures are from various shops from the US and UK i believe. Includes topshop, UO, forever 21... oh and there are also pictures from amazon and ebay.

Jen : I use the drop shadow tool on photoshop CS (layer>>layer style>>drop shadow and then set the distance, spread and size). Hope it helped :)
