The temperatures are expected to go below freezing tonight in New York. However, winter isn’t here yet. There isn’t any snow on the ground and the orange and brown leaves are still falling off of the trees. I’m going to enjoy the fall as much as I can before December 21; the first day of the winter solstice. Other than the beautiful scenery, I love fall style. I asked a few A*cute readers what their top style picks were for fall and here’s what they came up with…
Face: Purple and Plum Lip Colors
“Plum lips are super sexy during the fall and winter seasons“- says Ashlee Murph.
On Tuesday night, CBS aired the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. While some may argue that a show featuring a bunch of skinny women dressed in lingerie is sexist, I love the glamorous models and extravagant designs. Of course, no regular person would strut outside in lingerie, 5 inch heels, a neck full of jewels and large angel wings, but it sure does make for a great show! And while we might not be supermodels, that doesn’t mean you can’t feel like one. For a limited time, you can shop Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show: Model Essentials. Below are a few items that I thought would make great gifts either for a friend or yourself (wink, wink).
The Stocking Stuffer:

On Saturday, I woke up at 8:30am to make my 10am hair appointment in Brooklyn. Yes, that’s right, I went all the way from Harlem to Brooklyn to get my hair done. But that’s not the topic of this post 😉 As I dragged myself out of bed, I looked outside through the window and saw nothing but hot sun. I could actually feel the heat through the window. I needed something quick to put on that wouldn’t make my body burn from head to toe. There was a flower patterned sun dress laying on my ottoman that I’m sure I’d worn earlier in the week. The light material kept me cool throughout the day as the sun beat down on me. Although I wore the dress for a quick hair appointment, I’ve just decided that I should have been wearing sun dresses throughout the summer, no shorts, no capris, just dresses! They are suitable for running errands, going to lunch with friends, and you can even dress them up to look hot for late night cocktails. Even our favorite celebs have been spotted wearing sun dresses. So, since the hottest month of the year is here (Hello Mr. August!) lets all do ourselves a favor and just throw on a sun dress!
I love this time of year. Like a child on Christmas morning, I got all excited when I opened my mailbox to find the promo card for Victoria’s Secret Semi-Annual Sale. On my commute to work, I often see otherwise well-dressed women commit horrible offenses: quadruple boob syndrome, visible panty lines, peek-a-boo underwear, etc. The wrong foundation can ruin a great outfit. With the deep discounts at VS starting today, there is no excuse not to look your best underneath it all.
My top undie picks:
I have searched the world over for the perfect strapless bra. Ok, ok… Maybe not the world over, but it sure felt like it. They’re either too tight or don’t provide enough support. Alas, I struck gold when I found the Body By Victoria Multiway Bra. It forms to your unique shape and is seamless under clothing. The secret to this gem, however, is the reinforced band.
Body By Victoria Full Coverage Bra
This bra is an instant cure for quadruple boob syndrome. In the right size, it fits well, is seamless, and uber comfy. While fancy push-ups may be fun for your after-hours outfits, the 9-5 calls for modesty and wearability. I’m not a fan of padding, so this lightly lined bra that allows me to breathe is a must-have. I will probably get one in every color during the sale.
