Dress: Naeem Khan c/o HSN
Purse: Hal Rubenstein c/o HSN

As promised, I’m back with a second post showcasing HSN's fabulous fall fashion. (See post one here.) Today I’m rocking a Naeem Khan dress with crinkle fabric and cocoon shape. It comes in three colors, plus and regular sizes, and brings a whole new meaning to being comfortable. I don’t think I’ve ever tried on a dress that was this easy to wear and yet polished at the same time!

I’m also holding a Hal Rubenstein two-toned purse. It combines two trends with the satchel shape and colorblocking both being hot for fall. The craftsmanship is impeccable, it comes with a long strap as well as the short strap, and it has plenty of room for travel or for everyday use. The best part though? I’m giving this bag away to one lucky reader, a $368 retail value! There will be three winners total, because I’m also giving away two HSN necklaces (pictured below), and each winner will take home one prize each (prizes will be randomly assigned to the winners). To enter the giveaway, follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter box below.

You can check out HSN's fashion show every Thursday night at 9pm EST (on the HSN channel), or shop more of their great fall fashion on their website here. Which HSN item would you be most excited to win?

Today’s post is brought to you by HSN. All opinions are my own. Thanks for reading and entering!

Today's Everyday Fashion: The Tiered Dress

To really complete this look, I need a half-up messy braid in my hair. I love the bohemian-meets-lingerie vibe, it reminds me of so many Free People dresses I love (see options below, all but one are Free People brand). I also love the versatility of this dress. You could wear it with flat sandals to a festival, with a heels to a wedding (similar to how I've styled it), or with boots and tights in the winter with the ruffled hem peeking out below your coat.  Would you wear this style of dress?

I can't seem to kick this illness. I've been sick (sore throat/fever) for going on 7 weeks; it feels a lot like mono. I missed 4 days of posts last month and I'm afraid I'm struggling again with keeping up. One thing I have been able to do this week is online browsing, so today I'm sharing some coats & boots under $100 to kick off the official start of fall. 

First up are some coat favorites. Not surprisingly, most are from H&M. When I lived in Boston I bought almost all my spring/fall coats there. Not the same as winter coats, of course, which is a time in Boston when fashion is purely about survival. My winter coat looked like I wrapped my entire body in a down comforter (not so cute), but thankfully spring/fall allowed for cute coats like the ones pictured above. I also found some great deals on boots under $100, below. What types of coats and/or boots are on your shopping wish list for fall?
