Goddess of .. Autumn leaves are falling down

The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold
Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winters song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Yay ! Yay ! Hurray for getting away :o)

That's right bloggies, the travel bug has bit me again ! Of course, since I don't have any real time off from work until christmas .. I will enjoy a little get-away on the long weekend. This weekend is thanksgiving around my parts of the world so : Mom, her friend and I are going on a shopping trip !

This is absolutely the best time to enjoy good wine, good food, the folliage (awww.. Fall, i love you) and the clearance prices! We'll be heading down to Burlington, VT on Saturday morning.. spending the night and then to North Conway, NH on Sunday morning for another night. I am as excited as can be !

Mom, dad and I used to go to these parts of the states at couple times a year (usually around Thanksgiving) to enjoy some good food and shop stores that we don't have around here at home. Of course, with my parents' split it'll be different this year but I am guessing it'll only be better because.. last year was an absolute nightmare (Lolita was there, she could attest to that..) with my dad complaining and arguing with my mom the whole entire time !

Anywowzer, this year it'll be drama free.. except for my kick-ass personality of course.

I am ready to shop and fall is the perfect excuse, right ? I have (finally?!) discovered polyvore people !!! Watch out !

Autumn Leaves

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious things I absolutely must get for fall :
  1. Suede shoes / boots of a rich and bright color
  2. Leather / pleather jackets with studs, biker or military look
  3. Shiny leggings
  4. Loose, frilly or feminine tops
  5. Pendant necklaces
  6. Fresh lips and soft nails
See Liz, how I even managed to throw a little Balmain in there, for good measure ?!

I am not a fashion expert at all but to me, this feels sexy !  The leather is powerful .. the colored suede gives a little punch .. and the top with jewelry is fragile and feminine. 

Happy fall bloggies !

I'm sure my Lizzie will most appreciate her red Balmain beauties! If I'm not mistaken those blue gems are Steve Madden. I have them and I LOVE them!

I am heartbroken but I am strong.
I am missing someone but I am having fun.
I am alone but I don't care

Me in shiny leggings = WRONG. I have dancer/Latin legs, so leggings as pants just won't do it to me...

So I'll go with you in everything else, except for a good pair of jeans! :)
