Halloween is sneaking up on us this year! How did it happen that it's only one week away? Do you have your costume sussed out yet? We're still working on ours. (Can't decide between Maleficent and Miley Cyrus—the twisted pigtail version, bien sûr!)

Anyway, we felt it was time to take a break from costume brainstorming and just have fun with the spirit of the season. Haha! We're dying to get our hands on this bat print dress!

FashionGirl

Hi Fashion Girl: 

I always have trouble finding clothes to wear to school. I love fashion, but it always seems to be a hassle for me to pick out outfits. How do I make this struggle easier?

Thanks,
Mia

Dear Mia:

We all have days where we are more sartorially inspired than others. You're not alone. The trick is to just go with the flow. I recommend looking at the whole outfit selection part of the day as an opportunity for self expression. (And sometimes, jeans and a tee is how we want to express ourselves, right?!) Most of all, don't take it too seriously. Fashion is fun!

Stylishly Yours,
Fashion Girl

Le Labo

Estée Lauder has already purchased a number of our favorite beauty brands, including MAC Cosmetics, Jo Malone, Tom Ford, and most recently, Smashbox. Now the industry behemoth is acquiring Le Labo, one of our favorite perfume companies (its inventive and utterly gorgeous fragrances are layerable, and it has the most lovely apothecary-inspired labels). Le Labo, which already has stores in New York, London, Paris, San Francisco, Tokyo, and Hong Kong, already has sales of up to $30 million annually, but backing from a well-known giant like Estée Lauder will certainly give the company an even more significant presence in international beauty. And as Estée Lauder CEO Fabrizio Freda said in a statement, Le Labo is the "perfect complement" to its current line-up of beauty brands. The deal is likely to close next month.

 

& Other Stories

& Other Stories, H&M's younger sister, has finally hit the States! The women's lifestyle brand, which rolled out seven stores across Europe in just two months, has opened up a flagship store Soho, New York. The 6,400-square foot space is divided into four ateliers, each inspired by four different metropolitan cities--Paris, Stockholm, Berlin, and of course, New York. While the four collections aren't labeled shoppers will know which city is represented by the goods in each atelier: Paris has romantic, feminine pieces like beaded dresses and fringy chokers; the Stockholm collection is minimal and tailored; Berlin is full of tweeds; and New York is sophisticated with an edge. Animal prints tie each of the themed collections together. "It’s an interesting print to play with because you can do it in a really hipster-y kind of way, or you can do it in a crazy Italian way. You can do it in a French way, or you can do it in a New York way," said the store's ready-to-wear designer Behnaz Aram. But don't worry if you can't make it to New York to check out the store's cool layout or shop the city chic collections; & Other Stories also launched a US e-shop.

Cache Jet and Crystal Tassel Necklace

As far as we're concerned, one can never have enough jewelry (as evidenced by all the cool pieces we've featured on this site), so we're happily adding this Jet and Crystal Tassel Necklace from Cache to our collection. It's sleek and chic, with an art deco vibe that we simply adore. Best of all, it's incredibly versatile--we can wear it with anywhere and for any occasion. We're thinking it'll go great with an oversized sweater and pleated midi skirt for a date, then jeans and our favorite band tee for a movie with friends.

Homcoming dresses

Besides having a blast with your friends and dancing with your date, what’s the most important part of homecoming? The dress, of course! But homecoming isn’t the only occasion we’re looking forward to this season, and we know you’re already planning all of your outfits.Whether you’re going to homecoming with your beau or a holiday party with your best friends, you need to look fabulous. With so many choices (Cocktail dress or gown? Fitted or flowing? Lace or chiffon? LBD or a sensational print?) the possibilities can seem endless.  We already covered some tips on how to choose the perfect dress, but here are some styles we love for any end of the year occasion you have on your calendar.

The Essential LBD, Bedazzled
This LBD is seriously perfect for any occasion. Homecoming, cotillion, winter semi-formal, holiday RSVPs, you name it – this dress is your new go-to. The sequins are sure to catch the eye of that cutie you’ve been crushing on when you step onto the dance floor at homecoming, but the sleeves and high neckline keep it classy so you can wear it to a holiday party with Grandma.

The Drama
This stunning one-shoulder dress has just enough drama to be sophisticated and sexy. The cascading layer will draw attention to your sweet dance moves, while the crystals add a subtle sparkle. Already have a dress for homecoming? Wear it to a winter Semi-Formal or a holiday gift exchange party.

Luxe Lace
This dress would be the perfect New Year’s outfit to pop bottles (sparkling cider, of course), dance with your friends, and even move in for that midnight kiss. The delicate lace, metallic blue, and mesh detail give this dress a sexy, sassy edge. Can’t wait 'til New Year’s to debut this dress? Wear it to a Halloween party and go as your favorite female singer or celebrity.

Emerald Glamour
If you need a longer dress for a cotillion or family function (or just love how a side slit makes your legs look), this beaded emerald gown needs to find a home in your closet immediately. The jeweled neckline complements the deep emerald tone and adds a dash of glamour. Pair it with a shiny clutch and some chandelier drop earrings to complete the look.

So what are you waiting for? Make the dress of your dreams a reality! Grab your friends and head over to a Caché store, or hop on CACHE.COM and shop our entire dress collection. When you say yes to the dress (or dresses!), have a fashion show with the girls. Everyone can try out different jewelry and makeup to go with each outfit, and before you know it you’ll be all set, all season. Take a ton of pics and post them on Twitter or Instagram. And don’t forget to tag us @cachestyle or #cachestyle.

Romwe Army Green Jacket

Fall weather is nonexistent in L.A.; we're still wearing sandals and short sleeves around here. And while we are hopeful that we'll be pulling out our coats and scarves soon, we're being realistic about things and picking up lightweight jackets and vests, like this Army Green Jacket. It's light enough to wear now, and thin enough to layer under a bigger coat when things finally start to cool off. And while the army green color is so on trend, we can flip it inside out and wear the printed side, which is just as fabulous.
