If you were given $1000, what would you buy?
First of all, can you imagine? I have to admit, when thinking about writing this post, even I was having a hard time deciding how to spend a $1000 windfall! However, after years in the dressing room, I’ve learned that we all want to spend our fall clothing money wisely. We all like to make good, solid buying decisions, and invest in pieces we’ll wear over and over again. So, with a new season emerging, it’s fun to dream about how we would spend this kind of money … and I have a few ideas to share!
Fall is just around the corner, and there are 3 categories that really make a difference in our wardrobes. The first is coats and jackets, maybe because my first job was a Nordstrom coat buyer? I’m not sure, but I do know they complete every single outfit, and one can never have too many 🙂 Second is great shoes. Finding a comfy, stylish everyday shoe will get you SO much wear, and will keep every outfit elevated. Lastly, a stylish handbag is truly the piece that adds the finishing touch to every outfit, and it’s well worth the money. Keep reading for ideas on tips for spending your fall clothing money, and for a new style board I made for you!

Many of us want to get the very most for our money. Ideally, if you decide to buy a “chunk at a time” as I explain in the dressing room, then you will have outfit combos for days — if the pieces have been carefully chosen. In this style board, the J.Crew cardi and sweater blazer are very versatile and will make dozens of outfits. Currently both are on sale for $96. Also, a black, everyday bootie will get constant wear, as will a pretty wool scarf like this one. I recently picked up the handbag shown in the style board, and I’m wearing it in the above photo. This cute little purse goes with everything!
