Fall fragrances are some of my favorites and I am very picky about what scents I wear. I tend to just wear body sprays or hair perfumes in the summer because it’s too hot to also pack on a strong fragrance, but in the fall and winter I really love to get into my perfumes. These are some of my old and new favorites including the new Le Labo Baies 19 that just launched a couple of weeks ago. Luckily, I have a friend who works in fragrances at Nordstrom and she sent me a sample of the Baies 19 which I promptly ordered!
When I met my friend Mrs. Coco Wyse in person last month she was wearing the best smelling perfume (Cartier Baiser Vole) and I just had to have it. I ordered it and now I have people asking me what perfume it is when I wear it. I really like this scent for fall because it’s not too heavy and doesn’t overwhelm you when wearing it. This is why I always ask people what perfume they’re wearing if I like it because I would have never thought to smell or try this one otherwise.
I need to find a better way to organize my scents – this is my current situation because I am still looking for a dresser for our bedroom. Right now I have an old entry-way table set up as a dresser and it looks janky AF 😛 I also buy a lot of travel sized perfumes to try first if I’m not sure about the scent or if it’s a particularly strong smell and I know I won’t use a whole bottle.
Switching gears, I wanted to share some cute Amazon items I got in last week. I know a lot of bloggers are sharing Amazon clothing finds lately, and I love that because it makes it easier on me. However, I have ordered a few things that have come in and have been terrible quality or fit, so I want to make sure I am sharing things that are good quality and that you all will actually like when you get it in the mail.
I love all of the dresses above because they are affordable and very well made. The two tie-waist dresses are only $23 and I was super impressed with the quality and fit. These dresses are great basics that you can wear alone or you can layer with a fur vest or jacket and take into winter. I actually just ordered a couple faux fur vests from Amazon and I will share them later this week if the quality is good.
This is another dress I picked up on Amazon and I am definitely going to order some other colors since I live in dresses like this when it gets really cold. I talked about these black OTK boots last week and I am here to report that they are amazing in person and are exactly like the Goodnight Macaroon ones that are triple the price and take 3-4 weeks to ship. You can get the exact same pair with these boots and not have to wait so long for them to ship because these are on prime.
