fall fashion trends for home

Typically, my labels are about as fancy as Target and Old Navy. I'll spring for something nicer if it's a classic staple, but I keep it cheap if I'm going to go out on a fashion limb. You're with me, right?

It's still eleventy billion degrees but the breeze has the tiniest... and I do mean TEENSIEST, TINIEST... hint of fall. I'm not quite yet busting out all things pumpkin, but I'm starting to look at what trends to expect when updating my wardrobe. 

I can't help but go Devil Wears Prada on you...

'This... stuff'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select... I don't know... that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent... wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.

Right. 

Here are some big fancy trends that we can easily incorporate into our homes so that we can be the most stylish on the block.

Velvet

Pinstripes

Pink & Yellow

Gray Plaid

And there you have it... I have to admit, the pink and yellow isn't making me crinkle my nose as much as I thought it would. Which one do you like the most?

If you're out at Target or Homegoods and see a gray plaid pillow... IN THE CART!
