its in this spirit of fun that SHOP IT TO ME constantly exists, and here's the best bit i mentioned earlier: as if you needed any extra incentive to take part in this fun fun fun exercise, they're giving away marc by MJ accessories (wristlets, umbrellas, key fobs) too!!!!
right now, its probable that you're thinking WHAT"S THE CATCH?

either way, its a free, easy and FUN activity that combines fashion with good old competition-- i mean, doesnt everyone love a winner? ;)
shot by daniel schroeder in south africa for MAXI magazine, these images remind me completely of the season we're about to enter into. the saturated colors, sunset hues and glow from the light cast on the model's face all synthesize to a lovely warm pinkness set in nature.
it really was love at first sight for me...
and while i have no doubt the photos were enhanced, i would still love to see a park full of colored leaves.
now i dont get a particularly fall-esque vibe from her clothes, which in fact are rather summery, but reds, blues, and girlish ruffles with the quintessential girl shoe, the Mary Jane, make this model quite the ingénue!
i especially like that this is juxtaposed with her edgy hair...reminds me of karla from karla's closet. i don't think i can pull such a hairstyle, but i can certainly try adopting this primary color palette!
HAPPY FALL EVERYONE.
to a good season and good things ahead.
