Alfred Sung at Mark's #FallFashion #Review

One of my favorite things about Fall (aside from Pumpkin flavored everything) is Fall fashion!  I'm not a big fan of cold weather, but there's just something about layering up in cozy sweaters, scarves and a cute pair of boots.  When I'm not obsessing over bohemian style dresses and flowy tops, I like to add a little bit of 90s flair and edge to my wardrobe.  Colder weather is perfect for that.  Think short floral dresses with leggings, boots and a black leather biker jacket.  I was always an artsy kid... Some things never change. 

Except for the fact that now, in addition to being artsy I'm also a Mom!  I look for quality, versatile pieces to add to my closet.  I like knowing that my hard earned cash is going towards clothes that make me feel good, and clothes that will last!  Gone are the days in which I had hours upon hours to spend at the mall.  When my kids are with me, I'm in and I'm out - fast.  

Mark's is such a fun place to shop.  I find they have a little something for everyone.  Last winter I purchased an extremely practical pair of very warm Winter boots there for myself.  They're like wearing warm, squishy, furry, happy clouds of love on my chunky feet.  Haha!  Really, though.  I've raved about them a lot, to anyone who cares to listen.  I should have spent the money on boots like that years ago!  

Mark's offered to send me an outfit to check out from their new Fall line by Alfred Sung.  

The first thing I noticed was that the quality is second to none.  These clothes will not wear out fast, they will last through laundering and the everyday life of a busy Mom, either in or out of the workforce.  

The Double Hoop Necklace is super cute - I'm obsessed with it and have been wearing it a lot, with all kinds of outfits.  It easily dresses up something more casual like a tank top and jeans, and it's the perfect touch to something more formal.  I'll be wearing it to a wedding this Saturday with a cobalt blue v-neck dress.  Love!  

The Ottoman Dress turned out to be not quite my style.  The quality is incredible.  The fabric is thick and textured.  The sleeves are a nice length and actually I love that the dress is not too short.  I'm not sure whether I ordered a size slightly too big, or whether it's just a looser fit, but it was not flattering on me at all.  I'll be passing it along to a friend!  It's still a gorgeous dress on the right person, but this free spirit just isn't diggin' it.  

As for the Rib Knit Riding Leggings... GO!  Go now and buy yourself like 6 pairs.  They are amazing!  They are thick, warm, comfortable and wonderfully structured so they hold in any mommy-tummy you might have leftover from giving birth to your *cough* now 4 year old ... And they are ridiculously versatile.  They go with everything.  In fact I'm wearing mine today with a black tank and a cuffed sleeve chambray button down shirt.  I beyond love them and I want more!  

I'm looking forward to seeing what Mark's has on offer for Winter wear.  How about you?  Check it out at www.Marks.com
