Fall Trends 2013 (Pt.2): Splurge Worthy

Welcome to part two of the “Splurge Worthy Fall Fashion Trends of 2013.”


No need to get discouraged stylish sweets, the savvy saving fashionista in all of us will be revived for next week series. For now, it’s time to let our eyes glisten with price tag envy!


1992 called and they told us to come get EVERYTHING!


 Yes! The 90’s are back like they never left so if you grew up wearing tartan flannel shirts, chunky heels and loose clothes to school almost everyday (like me), this fall trend is for YOU! Even if you didn’t go through the tomboy phase…there is no time like the present.

Where to buy: clockwise

$54 ~ Studded Plaid Shirt (black & white/red) ~ Pretty Rebel

$208 ~ Wren Moto Jacket ~ Mynt1792

$119 ~ Silk Tartan Tank ~ Ralph Lauren

I’ve gotta be honest here…I never really stopped wearing plaid or army fatigue. Not all out Bob Vila but I’ve bought at least one plaid shirt or dug out one of my exes old shirts for lounging around. This may just be a blessing in disguise! Kudos to me for not ever completely growing out of the 90’s!

There is a new trend for 2013…a more feminine grunge; ruffles on camo, studs on plaid…you name it, it’s out there!
