I have a new favorite trend for the remainder of fall and coming winter: emerald green velvet as seen at Cushnie Et Ochs‘ F/W 2015 runway show (I simply adore the matchy-matchy head-to-toe velvet look here!). There’s just something so hypnotic about this deeply rich color and sensual material mix that makes it absolutely irresistible to me! Emerald green velvet looks so luxurious, so mysterious, so noble. Luckily, a couple of fashion chains picked up on this bold trend and incorporated it into their fall/winter collections, most notably Topshop and H&M which both have an extensive selection of (emerald) velvet pieces available at the moment (check out Topshop here and H&M here). Below I’ve selected my favorite emerald velvet picks which are both fashionable and affordable. Set off your green velvet look with bold gold jewelry, a black faux fur vest or, if you really want to make a statement with your outfit, just add some glitter.

If I had to describe my person fashion style in three words, “feminine” would definitely be among it. That’s probably one of the reason why I’ve never been particularly fond of the classic combat boot à la Doc Martens. However, lately I have discovered so many beautiful combat boot styles with feminine details such as velvet uppers, floral prints or lovely pastel colorways that it made me rethink my stance on combat boots being too bulky and masculine (for me). What do you think? Can combat boots be feminine or not? And if so, which of the three versions below is your favorite? The Velvet, floral print or pink one? Take the poll down below and let us know.

So how HUGE was Balmain x H&M, huh? The highly anticipated designer collaboration went live online on November 5th at 8 am EST and it was only a matter of an hour until almost every item of the collection was sold out; all despite the hefty price tags (with prices set around $500-$700 for key pieces, the most expensive item peaking at $699), thus making Balmain x H&M’s collection the company’s most successful designer collaboration yet. The website continued to crash over the visitor overload all morning while eager shoppers in Seoul queued up in front of H&M stores over a week before the official collection launch. The hype surrounding this collaboration has certainly caught on to the masses and it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the collection is now selling for vastly inflated prices on eBay where some pieces are priced at twice their retail value. No word from H&M yet whether they are going to restock the highly successful collection. One of my favorite pieces from the Balmain x H&M collaboration is this gold and white embroidered black velvet mini dress. I love that it doesn’t look watered down and could easily be mistaken for a design from Balmain’s mainline collection. Now would I spend $549 on such a statement dress? Maybe. But due to the hype, I don’t even have to ask myself this question because just like all the other pieces, this beautiful frock is sold out.

bebe Bead & Sequin Crepe Dress

If you don’t want to pay the ridiculously inflated eBay prices and can’t wait a few more months for other fast fashion companies to catch on to this hype to come up with their own inspired Balmain x H&M; look-alikes (c’mon, Forever 21!), I suggest you take a look at this beautiful beaded mini dress by bebe. I know this isn’t a spot-on dupe for the dress above and it certainly isn’t a steal at $299, but the Balmain x H&M inspiration is clearly visible on this frock in my opinion. Plus, unlike the real deal, this dress is readily available for you to buy with all sizes still in stock and all. So you can either keep on stalking eBay waiting for a miracle to happen or you can snap up this dress instead and get your own kind of Balmain party going.

Seriously, just how pretty are these lace-trimmed net peep-toe booties? I am majorly in love and officially obsessed wit these, but not so much with the price tag. Oh well, a girl can dream…

Another great designer alternative are these booties by Chinese Laundry.

With this colder climate it’s safe to say that scarves are becoming an essential part of my wardrobe. Scarves can really add definition to any ensemble and are a staple piece on one of those “nothing to wear” days. This Burberry Icon Check Cashmere Scarf maintains a signature style with super soft cashmere, check print, and delicate fringe. It is the ultimate exemplar of how to liven a monochromatic outfit, or just a brilliant way to stay warm this season.
