Back when I was just a wee Huntress, I used to have a book called “All for Fall.” I’m pretty sure the book was about jumping in leaves and generally enjoying fall. Maybe that’s where my love of all things fall began. Either way, I am definitely all for fall as an adult: fall colors, throwing leaves, wearing tights, you name it, I’m all about it. This is my all for fall look…welcome, Autumn. I missed you, girl.
Dress: Savers ($4, retails for ? no idea!)
Necklace: vintage via Greg’s Antiques in New Orleans ($3)
Tights: Hue via Nordstrom Rack ($3 marked down from $15)
Shoes: Banana Republic via Crossroads ($20 marked down from approx $120)
Jacket: Banana Republic ($30 marked down from $175)
Fashion Huntress tips:
1) I was a little on the fence about a short sleeve sweater dress, but I ended up really liking it! It’s especially perfect for a fall-ish/summer-ish day. And, of course, I can easily add a long sleeve tee-shirt underneath to add more warmth in winter. So if you’re on the fence about short sleeve sweater dresses, fear not, they are a definite go for fall and winter. I think this one is a little on the short side, so I wore completely opaque tights to ensure looking work appropriate.
2) I found this dress on my first visit to Savers and let me tell you, readers. I. Am. A. Fan. They have a very interesting business model that helps support local non-profit agencies. The Savers in my area support the Epilepsy Foundation. Super cool. From what I gather, Savers is essentially a for-profit discount chain that provides local charities with financial support for bringing in clothes, regardless of whether or not Savers ends up selling the clothes in their store. The prices are just slightly higher than at Goodwill (approx $5-$6 for a top versus $3-$4). If you donate there, I’ve been told that they will give you a 20% off coupon for your next visit. I definitely found myself digging quite a bit, but the stores are very spacious and well lit. There are even big changing rooms, carts, and baskets. If you have 30-60 minutes, I definitely recommend trying out a Savers near you. You can read more about them here: http://www.savers.com/
Anyone else have feedback about Savers? Tips? Thanks so much for stopping by, readers! As always, I appreciate it so very much! Happy almost mid-week!

I’ve never heard of Savers but it seems like a great bargain hunting place! The dress (just like everything you own 😉 ) looks great on you. I love the floral print in fall tones. The tights are a total thumbs up! You look so genuinely happy in this post too. Autumn never looked so good! 🙂
