Fashions You Can't Help 'Fall'ing For - Inspired By Fall Food

The human brain is advanced compared to other living beings on our planet. This is apparent in many ways, and well documented by scientists and researchers over the years. To me, the ability to get inspired is one of the most important facets of the human mind. Inspiration is defined as the process of being mentally stimulated to feel or to do something, especially something creative. Inspiration comes in many forms and is instinctive, and spontaneous. It can come from reading a book, watching a movie, listening to a song, following a leader and sometimes it comes from within ourselves.

The world of fashion revolves around inspiration. It is a creative process, after all, that gives birth to the wonderfully designed dresses and accessories that we all so love.

As appropriate for this time of the year, we bring you a collection from America & Beyond that is inspired by Pumpkin Spice and other Halloween dishes. After all, food and fragrance are some of the most inspiring factors in our lives.


Sweet Potato Casserole

A sweet potato casserole is a staple dish at Halloween. The brown upper layer is when you know the dish is ready. Our combination of Brown Leopard Jumpsuit paired with the Enshrine Handwoven Jute Tote Bag and Champagne Slip-on Sandals is a perfect tribute to the casserole. The Brown Leopard Jumpsuit is made in soft silk and comes with an elasticated waist and lapel collar. It has convenient snap buttons in the front and a self-fabric belt to accentuate your waistline. Highly functional, yet elegant, we are sure you will love this creation.

The earthy, naturally brown Enshrine Jute Tote bag will complement the jumpsuit perfectly. This handwoven tote is spacious and sports an inner zipper pocket for your convenience. The white and brown pompom tassel ups the Cute Quotient and the comfortable shoulder straps ensure you can carry this bag the whole day without the slightest discomfort.

Complete the look with the super comfortable, 100% leather Champagne Slip-on Sandals.


Brussel Sprouts

Taking inspiration from a viral article, my mother pranked me one Halloween by serving chocolate-coated Brussel Sprouts! Horrifying, isn’t it? Seriously speaking though, the simple dish has many health benefits. The natural green, crunchy nutritious sprout inspired us to create the Bronze Green Velvet Embroidered Parka! This stylish parka is made with cotton blend velvet and embroidered around the front placket and collar. The front is zipped, and the parka sports a drawstring tie for a cinched waist.

The beautifully hand-crafted Bright Is Best Embellished Earrings in their neon hue and golden accent will add a glamorous touch to the look.

Continuing with the Green Goddess theme do consider adding our Embellished Novelty Convertible Clutch to the mix. This magnificent hand-crafted creation is made in jacquard and can either be used as a hand-held bag or a cross-body clutch, thanks to the detachable chain strap. The vibrant, leafy embellishments in sequins and beads bring about a wild, tropical look that is just irresistible.

We suggest going with the Prickly Cactus Beaded Slider Sandals, the intricate beadwork on these in a quirky cactus pattern makes this very interesting footwear. Handmade with 100% leather, these slip-ons are super comfy, for your outing or even for lounging at home.


Cranberry Sauce

Next on the plate (pun intended) is the combination of Purple Freesia Lightweight Jacket, Purple Freesia Maxi, Ella Tribal Embellished Tote and Sienna Haze Lace Up Sandals. As you may already have guessed, this combination is inspired by the delicious Cranberry Sauce! 

The Purple Freesia Lightweight Jacket is made with viscose, has a floral print, is open-fronted with a tie-up around the neck and pairs very well with denim. The embroidered lace detail at the waist, the hemline and the sleeve hem add an alluring dimension to the jacket.

The very trendy Purple Freesia Maxi with Lace is our hottest Maxi this fall! The combination of the pattern, the fit and the colours have come together just perfectly to make it one of our fastest-selling creations. The maxi-length dress has Bishop sleeves with lace details and a triangle-shaped lace detail along the front. The overall look is very feminine and elegant.

Pair the dress with the multi-purpose, hand-beaded Ella Tribal Embellished Tote. This tote is made in hand-woven jacquard and comes with a lined interior, zip pocket and pocket organizers inside. The double straps make it comfortable to carry and the lace details on the straps add to the beauty of this tote.

The comfortable yet cool crochet Sienna Haze Lace Up Sandals with intricate braiding detail and lace-up closure are our recommendations for completing this combination.


Caramel Apples

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. If the doctor is handsome, keep the apple away! We want to discuss the ingenious way of adding guilty pleasure to the healthy, wholesome apple. Yes, you are right, we are talking about the Caramel Apples! They are such a fun treat for the Fall season, aren’t they?

Our Myra Embellished Tunic draws inspiration from the sweet and tempting hues of the Caramel Apple. The slip-on tunic with long sleeves and embellished V-neck is made in a silk blend and sports an oriental print. You can wear this tunic with a pair of jeans or a skirt equally well.

We have the beautiful, eye-catching Red Dahlia Embellished Tote that can pair very well with the Myra tunic. The beads and sequins embellished in a floral pattern and the pompom detail around the straps give this tote a very distinctive, striking look. The tote comes with an internal zip pocket, mobile pocket and pocket organizer. The double shoulder straps with lace detail are designed with your comfort in mind.

Add the Poppy Red Bird Earrings to the mix to bring added hotness to your look – these hand-beaded earrings with feathery red fringe detailing are a must-have!


Pumpkin Spice

No discussion about Halloween food can be complete without mentioning Pumpkin Spice. This dish is an aromatic BLEND of nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger and cloves. The resultant pie is a mix of oranges and brown colors, tough to pin down but pleasing to the eye as it is pleasing to the palate.

The Ombre Embroidered Tunic Dress with Tiered Fluted Sleeves is a perfect manifestation of the Pumpkin Spice hues. This off-the-shoulder dress is made in viscose crepe and cut to above-knee length. It has beautiful embroidery around the neck, tiered sleeves and a drawstring tie with tassels at the neck. The dress is casual yet chic and will make you stand out in the crowd. The Peach Parfait Embellished Earrings are an oh-so-perfect match with the Ombre Tunic! These hand-made beaded earrings with golden accents come with easy slide-on pushers, the shaded fringed base imparts an absolutely stunning, unique look to the wearer. Highly recommended!

The beautiful combination can be enhanced further by adding the Burning Sun Bucket Bag. Brightly colored in the shades of a fall sunset, this hand-held Jute bag also sports pretty Pom-pom and Tassel details. The zipped inside pocket and snap-button closure adds to the functionality of this brilliant bag.

The style statement can not be completed without adding the Leopard Slip-On Sandals. The delicate beautiful beadwork in a Leopard pattern coupled with the open-toed design of these pure leather sandals makes this a work of art!
