Fauxionable Outfit – Orange & Gray Argyle

Argyle is one of my favorite Fall/Winter print and little did I know it originated from tartan. Thanks Wikipedia! In any case, here’s another outfit featuring orange and gray argyle. (Previous argyle outfit here)

I love pleated skirts and can’t quite get enough of them. I’m glad that they are back in trend as that enables me to stock up! Heh. That aside, this $5 shirt from H&M Men is awesome. It’s cotton but not wrinkly and I even have one in white! What can I say, I love black and white. And oh, let’s not forget the classic tuxedo pleats, too.

Do you like pleats?

Fauxionable Outfit – Burgundy Wednesday

As mentioned here, burgundy will be one of the main colors for Fall/Winter this year and I couldn’t help but pick up this H&M dress in a classic cut (despite on a clothing ban!). I have been eying this dress since it was featured on H&M’s site and been checking out the stores frequently for it. I finally picked it up when I read ExtraPetite.com’s review on it. Love the invert pleats on the neckline, the cap sleeves, and the key hole on the back (not shown).

Fauxionable Outfit – More Stripes & Polka Dots!

Quick run to the mall for some lunch at Elevation Burger in a stripes & polka dots outfit (again!).

I love the Old Navy polka dot scarf that I bought last month as it is much softer than the Ann Taylor scarf that I originally wanted. In my opinion, here’s a case where the “beer budget” truly won! Definitely packing this with me for my Fall vacation!
