Fauxionable Outfit – Winter Rainy Day

Here’s an outfit for a Winter rainy day. Yes, I’m without an umbrella because it isn’t pouring rain but drizzling and misty!

Burberry Rubber Riding Boots

I bought these Burberry Rubber Riding Boots back in F/W 2010 and they have been serving me well. I admit to neglecting them a tad since I bought the Cole Haan Dorian Boots which can double as a pair of snow boots and is slightly more comfy with the Nike Air technology. But these boots are too pretty not to be worn and since I vowed to decrease cost per wear for my garments this year, here they are for an outfit pic! 🙂

Fauxionable Outfit – Burgundy/Oxblood Sweater & H&M Coupon

I wore this outfit some weekends ago to run errands and just realized that I didn’t get around to posting it. I absolutely love this H&M sweater and it’s the only piece of clothing I’ve bought during my clothing ban to replace an older sweater. I had a coupon and scored it for only $9! It is made of 90% acrylic (yes, I know it’s material to be avoided but I plan on dry cleaning it) and 10% mohair and definitely keeps me warm and cozy!

I would also like to share this H&M coupon for 20% off that I just received in my inbox. Perhaps you’d like to snag one of these sweaters or use it for a gift. Either way, happy shopping! 🙂

Fauxionable Outfit – Maroon Monday

Rushed to get these outfit pics taken as the sun was setting and I was being eaten alive by mosquitoes! Here’s my maroon Monday…

I’m glad that maroon/burgundy is going to be one of the main colors for this Fall/Winter. That along with oxblood red for Fall/Winter would make for an interesting season for me. Translation: I will have to try even harder to contain the shopaholic in me since I do like both colors!

Are you a fan of maroon/burgundy or oxblood red?
