Editor Picks: Top 10 Must-Buys for Fall 2009 – Andrea Thatcher

We continue our 2 week series highlighting over 100 things we’re loving this season. Check back daily for a new editor’s Top 10 list filled with the hottest clothing, accessories and beauty products to update your look for fall.


Stud Leather Jacket

I love grey as an unexpected color for tough pieces you might typically see in black.

$320 at topshop.com


Betsey Johnson Recycled Wool Blend Coat

Cute, classic and with a flare for the dramatic, I love this Betsey Johnson coat. This can serve as your basic black winter coat – but it’s so much more than a basic. It has such special details, like a velvet bow in back and signature Betsey heart buttons.

$218 at nordstrom.com


Sense-Of-Touch Tote

I always want a new black everyday bag – especially this time of year. The woven texture and knotted straps give this a little something special and it’s the perfect size for me.

$228 at anthropologie.com


Rock & Republic Nika Studded Pump

These platforms are right up my alley. They come in pink or grey, too, but I think they’re best in black.

$295 at endless.com


Ecote Colorblock Shredded Scarf

I’m not a huge scarf person, but I love the disheveled look of this shredded scarf. If I’m going to wear a scarf, I pick one a season and this will add a little rocker edge to my outfits.

Silence & Noise Moto Sweater

It wouldn’t be a fall favorites list without a sweater. This has many things I love going for it – it’s asymmetrical, has a zipper, it’s purple and kind of slouchy.

Sarah Utter Reading Is Sexy

I know it’s a T-shirt and not very fall-y, but I buy T-shirts year round and this one is too cute to pass up. I could only love it more if it said “Blogging is sexy.”

$14.95 at buyolympia.com


Henry Holland For Pretty Polly Alphabet Tights

I love tights – black tights, colored tights, printed tights, you name it. While my real goal for the season is the perfect pair of star-print tights, these alphabet tights by Henry Holland for Pretty Polly are pretty awesome too.

$14.86 at mytights.com


MAC Style Black Collection

I love the MAC Style Black collection for Fall 2009, it’s perfect for girls like me who love rocker eyes. My favorites are the black greasepaint stick and Young Punk Mineralize eye shadow.



Mrs. Prindable’s Traditional 6 Large Apple

I love candy and caramel apples in the fall, and Mrs. Prindables are a super-special treat and also make a great hostess gift or shippable gift for family and friends at the holidays. You can get 6 holiday candy-coated apples at QVC.com for $30.
