Black is the New, Well, Black

I'm so ready for Fall to come. I remember writing about how much I love Fall last year, so instead I'm going to talk about things that I love in the fashion world for the fall, and it mainly has to do with the color black.

Let's talk about Fall, and the color black:
~It's a beautiful color that goes with everything. 
~You can mix a variety of textures when they're black, even when you have different shades.
~Black dresses, skirts, pants; everything goes so well with them.
~Black shoes, especially boots (as pictured above, maybe with a shorter heel!).
I'm looking forward to mixing long colored skirts, black tops, and statement jewelry together this year. I'm also looking forwards to my coats that I love so much my red wool peacoat, my London Fog trench coat, and my vintage dress coats that my Great-great Grandma and Aunts made when they were my age.

The other thing that I'm looking forward to is the makeup that is my go-to look: black winged eyeliner, sculpted cheekbones, and red lips. My favorite red is Russian Red by MAC Cosmetics, eyeliner by Sephora. I also love mixing a smoky brown or gray eye with plum lips (Media by MAC), or black winged liner with pink lipstick (Snob by MAC), similar to Audrey Hepburn's look in Breakfast at Tiffany's . Makeup can really make or break an outfit, so choose wisely! 
As the summer ends, kids go back to school, the sweaters come out and Fall begins. All I have to say is: bring on the new season with love and good fashion.

So no one told you life was gonna be this way...

My life would is really crazy right now-friends with babies coming, getting married, just living a crazy life-I really don't know what I'd do without the help, love, and support of my friends. They are the ones I can text anytime, day or night, and they will be there for me. I can SOS and they will come and rescue me. It basically comes down to this: I love them. This group of 5 special women-"The Girls"-are one of the reasons-the best reason-my week goes better.

Well, we have a favorite tv show-which some of you know and love-called F.R.I.E.N.D.S., and we enjoy getting together and watching it, or hanging out every week at the local coffee shop and talking about our lives. We have even figured out which person resembles each character from the show, and it's scarily accurate. Here are my comparisons; let's see if I'm right!

                                                      Rachel is: Hannah & Danielle

Hannah and Danielle are definitely Rachel; a good friend, loves her hair, and wasn't sure if she could ever settle for the right guy. They're confidant, loves to shop, and loves, loves, LOVES shoes. Danielle is more country-Rachel, while Hannah is city-Rachel. 
Hannah and Danielle are funny, and have a smile for everyone, 
even when they don't feel like smiling herself!

Phoebe is: Camille & Michelle
To say that Michelle and Camille aren't Phoebe would be a total & complete lie. They play guitar, are eccentric, get along with the most random of people, and sometimes even sing Smelly Cat. 
Loyal to the end, and always there for you! They're also both tall and have a great sense of humor and always make the people around feel comfortable and loved!

Monica is: Danielle & I

Danielle & I are the Mother Hen of the girls, making sure that everyone has everything they need. We are get-to-it, make sure everything is right kind of women. We love having people around us, even though we enjoy those quiet times by ourselves or with those we love. I love to cook, and I clean when I stress. Or when it's messy. Plus I like to have most things in a certain space. Except for my closet. No one looks in there! 

In conclusion, I've decided to post most of the lyrics from that famous song, "I'll Be There for You" by The Rembrandts:

So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job's a joke, you're broke, your love life's D.O.A.
It's like you're always stuck in second gear
When it hasn't been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, but

I'll be there for you 
(When the rain starts to pour) 
I'll be there for you 
(Like I've been there before) 
I'll be there for you 
('Cause you're there for me too) 

You're still in bed at ten and work began at eight 
You've burned your breakfast, so far things are going great 
Your mother warned you there'd be days like these 
But she didn't tell you when the world has brought you down to your knees and

I'll be there for you 
(When the rain starts to pour) 
I'll be there for you 
(Like I've been there before) 
I'll be there for you 
('Cause you're there for me too)
