Since Fall is officially here I think it is time that we get into some hot beauty purchases for this season!

It’s no surprise that Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is a fan favorite of many makeup artists, beauty gurus, and makeup lovers, me included. The quality of the product is impeccable and it’s 100% Vegan. The lip tars and pigments last all day and the colors are bold and bright, so you will definitely be the center of attention.

The weather in New York City has been marvelous for those who love fall. Around the evening time the weather is perfect for a nice jacket and you can begin breaking out those fall boots. Although a few days last week we were in the 90s and high 80s summer is officially on its way out.

If you are still looking for some pieces to add to your fall wardrobe look no further than Vince Camuto. Many people are fond of the brand’s footwear, but they have great apparel as well. Take a look at my Top 7 picks for fall from Vince Camuto under $100.

The black and white trend is still going strong this fall, so I picked this mixed print cardigan to stay on trend and modernize your look with the forbidden stripes and polka dots, and also a black and white striped blouse. Different shades of blue also ruled the runway for Fall 2013 so i selected a cobalt blue long henley top that would look great with solid leggings, faux leather pants/leggings, or skinny jeans. Cranberry is also a great color for fall so I chose a solid color top, and also multi-color geometric print blouse with black skinny trousers as well. Last but not least, I chose a printed pencil skirt that would be great for the office and drinks after work.

What styles are you adding to your wardrobe this fall?

It seems like every few seasons plaid makes its way back into our lives. I used to own quite a few plaid shirts, but I have no idea where they are. My favorite was purple, black, grey, and white and I always wore it with my grey skinny jeans. I couldn’t get those skinny jeans to go past my knees a few years ago so they are long gone, and I guess my shirt is too.

Anywhoo, this season plaid is making a huge comeback and it’s not just with the tops. Think jackets, coats, blazers, skirts, dresses, shoes, and more. I think I still have this plaid jacket that I purchased from H&M a few years ago. I really love the coat, but it takes some work to put it on, well maybe not a lot of work, but it has more buttons and strings that need to be fastened and tied or you will just look ridiculous walking down the street.

Here are 5 pieces that I love that would be great additions to anyone’s wardrobe. Remember, when it comes to trends you want to pick trends that work for your body type. So be mindful of what you choose. Plaid is a busy print and you do not want to pick an item that draws attention to your problem areas. Take a look at the pieces that I selected below.

Would you rock this trend?

Usually in the fall and winter I rarely wear skirts and dresses. The I’ll do is throw on a sweater dress, tights, and knee boots and keep it moving. I’m trying to break that habit by purchasing more skirts and dresses in heavier fabrics for the fall and winter and that brings me to the quilted skirt.

I remember when I was in elementary school my mom made my brother, sister, and I take our school picture together. I was in 3rd grade and I wore a yellow/gold quilted skirt with a purple shirt with gold buttons. My sister wore the same skirt but with a red shirt and my brother had on some type of shirt to compliment our colors. We looked cute (too bad I don’t have a picture to confirm this) take my word for it lol. We didn’t call them quilted skirts back then, they were called popcorn skirts, but you get the idea.

I felt a little nostalgic as I was looking through my September issue of InStyle Magazine so I had to hunt down some modern options of what I once wore back in elementary school. Here are my picks
