Second Kors

There was a thunderously positive response to the post I did about Michael Kors' Fall 2008 show last week, which was gratifying (you all have such good taste!) and at the same time a little frustrating -- these clothes won't be in stores for months & months, and, being Michael Kors, they won't be exactly budget-friendly. So I did some surfing and after an exhaustive search (well, I was exhausted), here are some things I came up with (click photos for links).

Trim wool coats to throw casually over your shoulders, hopefully placed there by a man wearing a beautifully-tailored suit.

Under the coat -- shimmery blouses and trim skirts

Another bargain!


Yoana Baraschi Mystic Rose Party Tunic in Blue


Such a beautiful neckline.

Basic black pencil skirt -- an essential.

Love the lace peeking out from under the hem here.

Gorgeous fabric!

Super-sexy, and I love black watch plaid.


Boxy cropped jackets to balance out your pencil skirts:

LaROK Charlotte Cropped Jacket

Not too voluminous but still the right shape -- great for petites.

I love this -- it would also be great over some skinny slacks.

So adorable, and an unbeatable price.

This is actually a cardigan with a nice structured shape. So cute.



Curvy dresses...

D & G Belted Dress Black

A good basic sheath dress is something worth spending a little money on, because you'll have it forever and it can be dressed up or down as the occasion calls for.

Very dressy, but just lovely.

Note the detailing at the neck. I adore this.

Above three are great shapes at fantastic prices.

More beautiful fabric, and a more forgiving skirt shape that still reads as nice and hourglass-y.

And this doesn't even dip into the accessories -- the perfect little reptile pumps and the beautiful thin belts and lovely ladylike framed handbags -- but I hope it's enough to inspire you and get you started.

So, go! Shop!

I love the skirts and the black sheath dress--all will go so well with the coat.
