Fall Shipments

Getting soooo many fall goodies into our store the last week! AH! Even though it has been in the '80s this week, it is fun to see fun new fall clothing arriving. I know, it is not even labor day, BUT I work in apparel, on the retail side and in merchandising/product development, SO you have to be thinking seasons ahead!

Here are a few ladies favorites we are carrying...that I want in my closet!

You know I love this vest, but HOW CUTE is this scarf with it?!

and quilted jacket with wool overlays....
Okay, and this bag....LOVE.  Dark green wool with brown leather trim. What a great travel bag this would be? Or a great bag to carry at a fall festival. I ordered it for the shop but I think it's my #1 (though not sure how I can get another bag into my house?)

And this staple, classic Barbour plaid vest liner....over a fisherman cable. An amazing fall outfit with skinny jeans and riding boots!

Fall Casual Uniform

Fall Casual
This will certainly be my one if my go to outfits for casual fall Saturdays. 
These prairie underground sweatshirts are the best! Expensive, so you have to stalk for sales, but I live in mine!

I'm also stalking these black frye boots.....

You had me at stag....

Ruffles and antlers? This little Elizabeth McKay number is on its way to me...... I cannot think of anything that looks more "Rebecca" and that immediately needed to be added to my closet!

I scored mine on Ruelala, but the Lucky Knot still has it (here), as well as a great assortment of Elizabeth McKay styles.

I cannot wait to wear this this to follow.

My name is rebecca and I'm addicted to outerwear....

 I know, lots of summer left....but I can't help but find a few fall things I am lusting for as fall goods are  popping up in stores and  online. 
I'm am outerwear anyone who knows me knows.

Totally lusting for this camo vest (here)...not surprising I know. I have this vest in the herringbone, from two years ago from J.Crew.  And I wore it to death. (Last year it was at j.crew factory and I heard stories of people going insane trying to find them, and them being on ebay for crazy amounts of money.)  But I now need the camo...I mean, NEED.

and this field jacket (here). This reminds me of Naomi Watts in Eastern Promises....super cute. Total style crush on that woman. 

Except hers is Barbour (LOVE) and mine was sub 40 bucks on jcrew factory.  

and this EB convector jacket (here). I just was on a camping/cabin weekend coming up, and I lived in this. Perfect thing to pack. Lightweight, and won't be harmed by water (it has synthetic insulation).  I have had the prototype for a few months and I live in it!

I also just got an fabulous protoype fleece for fall 2015...stay tuned....

Just a note...

Maybe because my mind is always going 100 miles an hour, but I have an obsession with notepads. I literally carry one around in my purse, I have 3 on my desk at work, 3 at my home office, all that I actively use.  

I never know when the next new product idea will pop into my head, so I like to be prepared! Plus, even a bad idea is prettier when it's on a cute notepad! :)

My friend Bridget, of Bridget Rose Fine Stationary, makes custom notebooks.  The first, is one she created just for me.  Camo....obviously.....
The second, my favorite flower, a hydrangea.


I have the pen obsession that goes along with it:)

Spot on....

Have any of you seen this dress?? WOW. Calling my name.....combining two of my most favorite things...
I saw it in a loft email earlier this week, and then just saw it on shopdandy's instagram (here) and it is even cuter on than you think it would be. 

What makes this even better? One of my dearest friends I worked with at Eddie Bauer now works for Loft, and is on the women's dress team. So yes, I am biased. But regardless of that, this is the cutest (also can be belted, which I prefer)

When building a new product, I always visualize the customer I am making it for and where they will wear it....usually it is someone I have met or know.  I wonder if Michelle thought of me when she worked on this:)
