Yes, I shopped the Altuzarra for Target collection. I bought a bunch of items and settled on the Python Long Sleeve Shirt and Embroidered Pleated Georgette Dress. My closet was sorely lacking in long sleeve shirts that I can layer through the Winter, so this top was a perfect addition to my closet! And the dress is just fun, everyone needs a fun, flirty dress, right? Did you buy anything from the collection? (P.S. International folks can order from Net-a-Porter)

Top: Altuzarra for Target, Skirt: Old Navy (old), Boots: vintage (eBay), Bag: Lauren by Ralph Lauren, Jeweled Necklace: Grandma's, Gold Necklace c/o Marrin Costello, Ring c/o Kendra Scott, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La)

I'm continuing with the French Wardrobe Challenge, but changing the rules a bit for myself. Looks like both Jessica and I had the same idea! I'm switching it from 5 to 7 items and allowing myself to buy as many shoes as my heart desires, within reason, of course. While I will still be discerning with all my purchases, it will be nice to have a little more freedom. I'm also going to be more lenient when it comes to "basics" by not restricting to black/white and gray since I wear a lot of burgundy and purple. I have a clothing budget for each month that I'm usually pretty good about sticking to, so that helps curb my purchases as well!  Will you be doing the challenge this season?
This first month I told myself I wasn't allowed to buy anything since I splurged on a pair of Chanel flats last month. But, as per usual, I couldn't  keep that promise. Most of what I bought was paid for with gift cards, so it wasn't a total fail! I did buy a new Marrin Costello necklace and a couple Altuzarra for Target pieces without gift cards. But the Target stuff would have sold out if I waited, so I had to, right? Not really a good excuse, but the collection had lots of purple and burgundy! What's a girl to do?
Near the end of the month I used up an Amazon gift card to buy a pair of Cole Haan sandals I've been wanting since May. They were the last size 8 in the purple color I wanted so I went for it! I paid more than the $49.99 price tag at Marshalls, BUT it was a gift card. The design is simple enough that I'll be able to wear them for years to come. They aren't technically a Fall item, so I won't include them in the remaining roundups.
While I wasn't totally successful in not buying anything I was thoughtful with my purchases, so it's alright.  This weekend my mom is taking my sister and I out birthday shopping (mine is in a couple weeks!) so maybe I'll be able to hold out the rest of the month and not buy anything... (doubtful)

Rather than doing a ton of posts featuring collections from New York Fashion Week like I usually do, I decided to be SUPER picky and just share some favorites from the whole week. Will hopefully do the same for the other cities. I went through as many collections as possible but there are far too many to go through them all. Ha ha.
