In Anticipation of Fall

As retailers begin to stock new fall apparel in richer autumnal hues, I'm starting to compile my wish list. (I admit that it's challenging to buy fall items on a hot summer day.  Thick sweaters and faux fur coats are simply not appealing when you're perspiring.) Along with the Teddy Girl/1960s and Mod punk trends, I'm also warming up to the eccentric ladylike theme. Think pencil skirts with thigh-high slits, polka dots (thanks, Stella), bow blouses, mixed prints, Peter Pan collars, and animal motifs. My must-have shoe of the season? Creepers, of course.  Although I haven't bought any yet, there are a few Jeffrey Campbell styles that look promising.  I'm also on the hunt for an adorable sweater with an animal motif.  The face of a puppy, sheep, or bunny, perhaps? So what are you looking forward to buying and wearing for fall?
