I am really excited to start my fall shopping. I am pricing motorcycle boots, docs, heels, oxfords, sneakers (given), you name it I’m pricing it. The only issue is, I shouldn’t even be pricing anything. Student loans and living necessities come first. However, if I did have an extra $1,195 to throw around on a pair of shoes, I would buy these Jimmy Choo motorcycle boots. I’ve been into this style of boot for a while now and I suppose now I am just looking for a way cheaper alternative that will satisfy my empty pockets and luxury lusting heart. I love the silver and gold tone studs, adds a little something extra to a silhouette that is so masculine. I really want these. No I need these. Oh Jimmy Choo! Don’t you do this to me!

Chris Habana isn’t even meant for this blog. His stuff although sometimes uber expensive, is a little on the affordable side (if that makes any sense at all). If you care about good accessories that are versatile and long lasting than the expensive part kind of goes out the window because Chris’ products are worth it. Awhile ago my sister showed up with his WORK! hat on and I fell in love. It’s so bold, so out there, and so fun. Its one of those pieces you don’t wear anything else to distract attention from it because it’s literally making a statement all it’s own. His jewelry is pretty amazing as well, you can see some examples after the jump. If you feel inspired to purchase Chris Habana’s goods, you can find them at Oak NYC and Karmaloop

A Peace Treaty
I’ve been a fan of the Peace Treaty brand of scarves for a couple years now. I think Katya might have been the one to turn me on them, but I’m old and senile so I can’t really remember. The problem with Peace Treaty is that although their scarves are epically drool worthy, the prices are not. I’ve got two scarves from them and both I’ve recieved on special occasions from parents and siblings that have way more money than I. With a scarf going for at least $200 would you expect anything less from a broke college student? I mean really…

Dico Copenhagen 'Brazil' Flat
Everyone knows I have a thing for flat shoes. I’m a fan of heels and especially how they elongate my legs, definately not a big fan on how they feel after standing in them for more than 10 minutes. My obsession with flats is currently focused on Oxfords and Loafers, I’ve found a couple pairs I’m thinking about purchasing, but their all muted dark colors not very suitable for summer weather. Dico Copenhagen apparently heard my cry and created their Brazil flat just for me. Or at least thats what I like to tell myself. Now available at Revolve. Get them before I do.

Oh Diesel, I can always count on you to have some fly item or other. Let me introduce the women’s laime leather jacket, running for a cool $600. Is that the French way to spell ‘laime’/lame or something? Anyways…Maybe I’m dreaming of cooler days way too soon, no way I can bust out a leather jacket just yet. Considering it has been 105+ degrees in Phoenix, but can you blame me? I mean really. Check the delicious-ness at 80s Purple, where other affordable items do exist.
In my constant quest to find fashion that’s actually attainable, I stumbled onto Nasty Gal, and almost instantly fell in love. The brand carries clothing that reminds me of Top Shop without the ridiculous price tag. I found a bunch of pieces that I’ll be saving for, including rompers, some destroyed jeans, and this really cute ruffled top. On top of carrying clothes, shoes, and other accessories, the site also sells vintage finds. It’s like one stop shopping!

Everyone has heard of a party in your pants, but these Maison Martin Margiela mirrored leggings make for a party on your pants. I can’t help but yern for a black pair of these sparkly beauties. One can only hope though, at around $2,500.00 these babies are sold out. Apparently we aren’t in a recession?
