Trend : Leggings

In summer, leggings were paired with tunic tops and dresses.
This trend has made the transition into Fall, and looks great with sweater dresses or knitted tunics. You can dress up the look with boots, or go casual with a pair of flats.
And it's great for travel too. It doesn't crease, takes up minimal space, and you can wear it in so many different ways. Check out the many ways that leggings can be worn :

Did you know that actress Milla Jovovich has a clothing label?
Jovovich-Hawk was launched last year, and is a collaboration with her friend Carmen Hawk.

Having seen her in movies like Fifth Element, Resident Evil and Ultraviolet, I had somehow assumed her personal style in real life would be similar to those kick-ass characters that she often plays.
So I was quite surprised to see that underneath it all, she's a girly girl after all ;)
Check out these pieces from their Spring 2007 collection.

Frock Horror

I don't quite know what to say about this dress, except - what was he thinking when he designed this??? I can't decide if the skirt looks like an ostrich, or a bush. Either way, I can't imagine anyone who would want to wear this.
OK, perhaps Bjork.

5 Sweaters

URBAN OUTFITTERS Kimchi & Blue tunic sweater $58 - The model is wearing a short skirt, opaque tights and boots. I like that it looks kind of mod.

NORDSTROM Frenchi puff sleeve turtleneck $40 - Perfect for work.

DELIAS Vanessa scoop sweater $39.50 - In a longer tunic style that's in right now.

DELIAS Dresdan hoodie $34.50 - Available in assorted colours. My favourite is baby blue. It's so pretty and a very unexpected hue for A/W.

NORDSTROM Halogen boucle cowl neck sweater $58 - The low neckline and sheer knit proves that sweaters can be sexy too.

A/W Colour Palette : Grey

Grey is one of the hottest hues this season, and so for today's post, I've found some pretty grey shoes to rave about. What I like about grey is that it's not as predictable as black, and much less severe looking. Best of all, you'll have no problems matching them with dark or light coloured outfits. Need I say more?
Steven Lalo $62.95 (This shoe also combines 2 other current shoe trends which are patent, and a platform heel)
Gabriella Rocha 'Callie' $69.95 (The cut-out pattern makes it interesting, and sexy in an understated way. Perfect with a killer suit.)
Ted Baker 'Jasmine' $173.95 (Ankle boots are in this season, and this is one of the most decent pairs I've seen so far)
Steve Madden 'Brinkk' $93.95 (The wedge heel is an interesting contrast to the pinstripe pattern)
Steve Madden 'Elaa' $93.95
Jeffrey Campbell $68.95

Blink 'Nikita' $62.95
Betsey Johnson 'Brace' $163.95

Eva Mendes Loves Her .....

Jimmy Choo tote. And notice how the bold red colour didn't stop her from matching it with a purple(!) dress.

You can get her Jimmy Choo calf/suede tote at $1895 from Saks Fifth Avenue.
