There's 20 More Where That Came From: The Latest Top 20 Shopping List Picks

The Top 20 Gets Updated. Shop the Latest...

It's Monday which means, well, it means a few things... Sure, some of those things can be a little Debbie Downer (read: morning commutes, classes, a futile dependency on hitting the 'snooze' button, and so on). 

Why not elevate the end-of-the-weekend, 'meh'ness' mood and change it up a bit, right?

Sure, you could go get a triple, mocha, double shot, milkshake (let's be honest, it's not 'coffee'; b. why throw down $5 on that when you can get TONS of deals and free stuff by subscribing to the monthly Body Type Lookbook anyway?), or possibly chow down on the cupcakes that are still in the break room for an instant sugar-high followed by the inevitable sugar-low/internal 'why did I eat that' guilt-ridden internal dialogue...OR, you could take a mini-break and feast your eyes on some fashion.

Is it really that tough of a decision? Nope. Step away from the week-old cupcake. You can thank me later.

Click on the image below to check out the latest Top 20 picks in one edited-down, uber-curated, shoppable hit list. There are so many pieces out there that we simply cannot squeeze it into our monthly, on-line, Body Type Lookbooks (if you haven't already, pick up a FREE version um, like, right now), but that doesn't mean these gorgeous picks shouldn't have their day in the StyleShaker sun.

Sure, these shopping picks may not have made it into the What's Your Type Style Guide (also FREE; what? I know, it's getting a little ridiculous over here) or monthly Lookbooks, but we just couldn't leave them behind, hence the Top 20.

One final note: these picks sell out. I'm not just saying that to be cutesy (technical term) or create a false sense of urgency. Nope, it's a fact. They won't ALL sell out, but enough do, hence weekly updates or else you'd be looking at a list of gorgeous things that are no longer available and nobody likes that.

Enough chatting, on to the Top 20. Click thru to the Closet (the mother-load of all our edited shopping on The StyleShaker) and scroll down the page. They're all there waiting for you!

Fall Essentials 2012 | The Shopping Checklist, My Pride & Joy (and obsession).

Bring on the Listing Madness (I Love a Good List). Check Out the Fall Essentials Shopping Checklist, 2012

This all-encompassing shopping list is carefully broken down into essential Fall categories and subcategories, because, well, I have an affinity for a well-organized shopping list. I'm not ashamed. You should see my grocery list, impeccable.

 Shopping, on-line or in store, for each season can be overwhelming to say the least. Baby steps to pulling together a Fall wardrobe are in need (I look at product day in and day out, styling out Closet clients and consulting, and I STILL need this quick reference to organize my style thoughts), so, here they are:

The list is dynamic. We check off essentials featured in previous posts (see below) that have been added to the StyleShaker closet, and keep the forward fashion momentum going strong.

Step one, shop your closet. Narrow it down to what you have and come to grips with the essentials you need to invest in. You're about to create your 'Core Closet,' for the season so show it some love. Step two, walk through the un-marked listed items, shop it up, and pull it all together just in time for the temps to drop. We all can appreciate the absurd joy that one feels when crossing out an item on a list. I mean, c'mon, it's bliss.

See what we've pulled so far to put a dent in the Fall essentials shopping list:

The Fall essentials are a biggie. Take the list with you wherever you shop, I promise you it will prevent those pesky, and seasonal, "why did I buy this," and, "what do I need to stock up on,"  questions we all know and love, or wait, loathe.

List in hand, you're all set. Time to get back and take in the inspiration. It never ends. See more on what to wear, how to wear it, and where to shop here.

Shopping List! | Tori via Generations Collective & her Top 10 Picks

One of my favorite pieces to the not-so-complicated StyleShaker puzzle would have to be the dynamic shopping lists. They are all hand-picked pieces living in the StyleShaker Closet, that run the gamut across all fashion categories from shoes to dresses, tops to denim, jackets to jewelry, and the list really does go on.

When I go into a store for myself or my clients, I hit the ground running like I would at my Whole Foods down the street (shout out). The list is a crucial part to this, telling me what I'm looking for and where to get it. Sure, there's definitely playing-dress-up moments and random browsing, what's life without things like that right? But the list keeps me on point, focused and able to walk out of wherever I am (or sometimes click out since this girl loves her on-line shopping) feeling good about what is on it's way to me or in the bag I'm obnoxiously swinging from my hand (there may be skipping involved, but that usually happens when I'm with my clients/friends and there's wine involved).

My second favorite thing about The StyleShaker you ask? The people I get to meet. Collaboration is key and brings amazing ideas and  outside perspectives to the table. Whenever someone asks to contribute to the site, the first step is usually them submitting their wishlist/shopping list from our hand-picked, heavily edited 'Closet' of goodies. I always love to see how it comes together, and this time around is no exception.

Meet the one-woman powerhouse behind the blog Generations Collective, Tori:

Tori and I met via IFB and she was kind enough to send over her own Hit List, aka top 10 picks and why she fell in love with each. She pulled together this fabulous montage in her Generations Collective aesthetic (which is why I had to have her as a contributor on the site in the first place), so check it out and read about why Tori chose each piece below. Oh, and shop of course!

From Tori:

Fall is just around the corner. For someone like me who loves the Summer, it’s a little bittersweet, but there are some things I’m looking forward to in the coming season. Being able to wear faux fur and flared pants are immediately what come to mind, along with Fall colors and fabrics. I’ve chosen some favorite pieces from Style Shakers’ “What to Wear” that reminded me of the feeling and vibes I’m looking forward to in Autumn.

The shopping list line up:

1. Andros Wide-Legs - Anthropologie

Like I said, flares flares flares. I am crazy about bell bottoms, and these ones are a great color for Summer and Fall. Add a high waist and I'm in love.

2. MINKPINK Wisteria Lane Dress - Revolve Clothing

If you know me at all you know that I am obsessed with florals. I don't care which season, what the weather, I will be wearing florals. I think this is an adorable floral dress, a great transition piece.

3. Rachel Zoe Delfina Silk Chiffon Pants - Saks Fifth Avenue

I can't get over how beautiful this is. The movement, the color, Fall fashion at it's finest.

4. Angie Panorama Twill Pants - Piperlime

Another terrific pair of flares, these ones even more suited for Fall, being that they're thicker and a deeper warmer color. :)

5. Muubaa Charme Aviatress Jacket - Boutique to You

Another love of mine: shearling. I love the aviator style of this jacket. Nothing is more perfect for Fall than leather and fur in one.

6. Rosalina Heel - All Saints

I have been obsessed with wooden heels lately. I adore the look of them, and they are perfect for autumn- the color, and wood reminds me of the trees and the falling leaves.

7. Kendra Scott "C and y" Allison Earrings - Endless

 I love the color of these earrings, they're so bright and fun and could add life to any outfit.

8. Hudson Dress – Tibi New York

 I adore this dress. I instantly loved it because I thought of it as a perfect transition piece in between Summer and Fall. The colors and beautiful and I love the leafy looking print on the bodice.

9. Burnt Sienna Shag Jacket - Anthropologie

I LOVE faux fur. So far I own two faux fur coats but I cannot get enough. This is one is a great Autumn color too.

10. MISSONI Deep V Long Sleeve Dress – Forward

 I am crazy about the print of this dress. The print plus the colors scream “Fall”.

And there you have it. Tori's shopping list, her top ten picks, and hopefully some inspiration for you, the reader, because at the end of the day, that is what it's all about.
