Yes, I have an obsession for boots. Short ones, tall ones, heeled, flat; you name it – I want it. It pains me to no end, as every time I look up, there is a new style that I want – this time, it’s the lace-up bootie.
Celebs everywhere are seen flaunting this look. Its varied style from suede to leather, open-toed to embellished buckles and studs, is sure to please your palate. No matter what your particular taste may be, you are sure to find a option that fits your desired look and price point.
Check out some of my favorite celebs that have been seen wearing lace-up ankle booties:
Rachel Bilson in Zara Suede Boots (sold out)
Kim Kardashian in Christian Louboutin Alta Bouton Ankle Boots
Blake Lively in Chloe
Cheryl Cole in Elizabeth and James Moxy Booties

Sequins are a really fun way to brighten up an outfit and give it a bit of life. It’s easy to go overboard, so one simple sequined item as part of your full outift is a perfect way to try out this trend. Below are a bunch of celebrities showing off their sequins; what do you think?
It’s as simple as adding a sequined vest over a tee with some jeans, or perhaps a blazer! For a night out that requires a more dressy attire, think about a sequined mini or even a sequined dress!
Continue on below for some great options to add to your wardrobe. I am planning on picking up a vest or jacket, and am loving the Steve Madden skirt! Adorable and so fun!

I am absolutely ready for the fall and winter seasons. Something about the cold weather, and the fashion fantasies it creates in my mind, makes me want to go out and get a whole new wardrobe. Unfortunately, it’s just not possible. Sigh.
Thankfully, there are a ton of smaller, less expensive items that will not only spruce up my closet, but it will absolutely add some life to your own! Simple and yet chic, printed and patterned tights are a must-have this year.
Check out these celebrities wearing tights: Blake Lively, Ashley Olsen, Rachel Bilson, Leighton Meester, Megan Fox, and Victoria Beckham. Do a quick search online, and you will see how many others are going for this look too!

Rachel Bilson was seen arriving back to the LAX airport in Los Angeles on September 14, 2010. Rachel always has a great sense for making comfortable clothes fashionable, and I appreciate that she wears outfits that we all can see ourselves wearing. (If not all of it, usually at least one part of it.)
