Happy October- today I'm going to be sharing a few of my favorites from this last month. If you follow my Instagram, you've likely seen all of these pieces time and time again, but I haven't had a chance to speak about them specifically. Because I photograph these items so heavily, you might notice some overlap of favorites in photos!
DISCLAIMER: Some of these items were sent to me! I am very particular about the companies I work with, and the items I specifically get sent to me. And I do not get paid to share my opinion with you!
My first favorite is a watch from the 5TH. This company is a minimal girl's dream for time pieces. Even in the age of technology, I still rely heavily on watches to tell the time. The one I am wearing is from the Tokyo collection, and it's the watch "AKI", meaning autumn in Japanese (perfect for the season!)
You can purchase AKI here.
My second favorite has been a classic pair of vintage Levi 501s. You know those fashion pieces that everyone and their mother owns? This is one of those, and for good reason. I used to think that American Apparel made a good dupe for vintage Levi's, but I was wrong. I was ignorant, and I didn't own a pair of vintage Levi's. As far as I have searched (and I own a lot of denim), there is nothing quite like vintage Levi's. I wear my 501's constantly, and I will wear them until they deteriorate on my body.
While we are looking at these photos, I'm also going to talk about the bag, which I haven't stopped wearing since I received it.
The bag is from a brand called Closet Access. Closet Access is a company that makes high quality imitations of designer bags, and this one is obviously designed after the infamous Chloe Faye bag. Speaking as a broke college student, I absolutely love Chloe's designs, but absolutely cannot afford the extra $2000 to have the brand name embossed on a bag. What makes Closet Access better than, say Forever 21 or H&M, is that the bags are imitations, but they are still great quality. Closet Access bags are made with genuine leather and suede, so they are incredibly durable and beautiful.
I own the Kendall bag in camel: you can buy it here.
My final favorite is a pair of sandals from Forever 21. These have actually been a favorite of mine for the last couple months. My love of these was definitely inspired by a pair of Celine sandals (that I can't afford.) What I love about the F21 pair is the square toe box. Most of the strappy sandals that I see have a rounded toe box, but these shoes are quite square, which is why they remind me of the Celine's (photo directly below.)
I snagged my F21 pair up on clearance, but they are back to regular price on the Forever 21 website. (Still cheaper than Celine!) These fit true to size.
