I guess there's a reason the "little black dress" now has it's own abbreviation. It definitely has become a staple. I was down with Alison here in Houston, thrifting, when she came across this particular black dress. She asked me if I wanted to try it on, but my closet seems to be filled with black from my NYC days (is there anything more chic? But I've been trying to get outside the depths of my black, white and grey closet in order to literally step, like dorothy, into the technicolor world of Oz). But when I found that she had yet to find the perfect little black dress for her closet, I realized a purchase would ensue.

Some of you may wonder when you do find that perfect dress, how to wear it in an everyday way. The key here is accessorizing. Don't be scared of brown...brown seems to pull the black into the realm of casual. And of course what's the all time best way to dress down anything? A motorcycle jacket. Here's what Alison is wearing...bag Forever 21, shoes are DSW, jacket H&M, dress vintage. Want your own vintage black dress? You could try ebay (always check measurements), your local goodwill, salvation army, or DI.

I spotted this girl and her fantastic style from across the Lincoln Center. I love how she pulled all the different elements together - the front tied button down, printed dress and the amazing red bag (Zara has one that is similar...). Normally I'm all about super, super natural looking hair styling and color but I love what this girl has done with her hair color. The whole look is so cool and seemingly effortless.

We're going for a 70's Annie Hall feel with this look and thought wide leg jeans, a tie-neck blouse and fedora hat would do the trick. Tie neck blouses are always chic and they seem to be having a moment this Fall. Topshop has a lovely red tie-neck blouse right now.

One of us good girls at Thread Ethic is in denial that fall is approaching. She saw Tera here and wanted everything about her outfit to be locked in time. The warmth, the perfect late summer weather, the slight cool breeze; the bright yellow, nautical stripes, boat shoes, and bright orange accessories... it all just needs to remain in a capsule for the perfection of late summer. Boating, beaches, picnics and pools are coming to an end. Isn't this just a bit sad? We think so. Anyway, enough of the summer nostalgia, Tera's pants and amazing cat eye sunglasses are Urban Outfitters, shirt is Forever 21, shoes and bracelet are H&M. We're excited to see what she may do with the yellow pants come fall. Fur anyone?

Brights, brights and more brights my friends. What better way could there be to get in on this trend than with your accessories? These stylish girls show exactly how to go bright, right.

Color was everywhere at FW - even apparently in the form of green lipstick. Even though we're not going to be sporting any green makeup, we definitely love this beautiful gold blouse (which I happened to see being sold at Zara, in case you want to run out and get one yourself, but a modest girl might need to put a little underpinning, or liner, in the drop V back) blue pencil skirt and purple bag combination.
