Oh, readers, it is that beloved time again: Fashion Week! I’ve been loving all of the the street style posts; seriously, could the attendees look any cooler? And the shows….swoon. So many amazing show posts. And, of course, last but certainly not least, the September issues are all gloriously out and include hundreds of pages of glossy ads and articles. I’m just swooning…and to top it all off, fall weather hit Chicago today, so I’m even busting out my seasonal mugs. All in all, long story short, this is fashion heaven, if you ask me, and I am loving it. This outfit is my ode to Fashion Week; even though I’m not attending the shows (maybe one day??), I’m pretending I am in my painted and patterned kimono.

Fashion Huntress tips:
1) The mules/wedges pictured here were purchased on Amazon.com. This is actually my first pair of Amazon shoes and let me tell you, I am quite pleased. I actually saw these shoes on the DSW website, but realized they were cheaper on the Amazon.com and came in more colors on Amazon. Hmm. I don’t have enough experience in this area as of yet, but I think it’s worth checking for shoes on Amazon to potentially snag better prices and color options. I’ll report back, though feel free to share feedback, if you have any!
2) I read an interesting article about nail polish in Consumer Reports the other day. Umm, Consumer Reports is where it’s at! I love that magazine- I’m sure no one is surprised by that. They don’t accept payment for any of their reports, and they put out great unbiased reviews. Anyway, check it out; they recommend the Sinful Colors nail polish ($1.99) as their top pick for quality and cost! I love Sinful Colors and normally get it at Walgreens.
Anyone else have feedback about buying shoes on Amazon? Or Sinful Colors? Thanks so much for stopping by readers; I appreciate it so very much! Have a good rest of the week!
