Faux Suede Shift

Posh Square Faux Suede Shift Dress, Zara heels, Pastels & Pastries Fall style

If fall is all about new beginnings, I am fully embracing this position for this season. Not to mention celebrating while I'm at it! Suede is kind-of a new fabric for me. Up until now I have never really dabbled into suede like clothing. Footwear and bags, yes, but never clothing. I don't know why I've been avoiding suede because it really does look glamorous and luxurious when paired with a pair of pumps.  I love this dress from Posh Square because it's such a statement on it's own. The colour is bold, the cut is structured, and the dress just feels soft like butter, but it's faux. The front and back both have a v-shaped neck, which make for the perfect going out piece. Talk about a switch up from the little black dress! 

I mentioned we're celebrating. Can you guess why? Well.. I did it. I purchased my very first vintage designer bag, and have had no regrets since. When I was in New York back in August I passed by a little shop called "Paris Stations" on West Broadway and from the overflow of vintage Louis Vuitton, Celine and Chloe in the window, I knew I had to go in. Immediately my heart leaped when I noticed the selection of vintage Chanel bags.  I had been in search of a bag for quite some time, and the owner was friendly, funny and welcoming, telling me stories of Paris and his collections. It made me feel at home, and at ease and it felt like the most opportune moment. I love that the bag is classic and timeless, but the shape and style is just different enough from the classic flap bag. The bag may have been an investment, but I know it's worth it. It already brings me back to this trip in New York with my family, and I can't wait for the future memories I'll make while wearing it. 

What's your take on investing in vintage bags?  Do you see it as practical or senseless?
