One thing that I just love about the cooler weather is wearing coats. I think they add a little something special to just about any outfit. This might also be why I own countless coats...I just can't get enough of them!
There is a new coat that I am lusting after. This adorable tulle coat from ASOS. I love the color...and I can't get enough of the tulle detail. It's just so pretty!
What do you think of this coat? Is it on your must-have list for the fall???
No, I am not a country fan. But I do love Taylor Swift's sense of style. She always looks so pretty and feminine. This satin canary Dolce & Gabbana dress knocks it out of the park! I love the bright yellow and the red Mary-Janes. She's not afraid of color...or having some fun with her looks. And because of that I don't look at her as a country star...but a fashion maven! Bravo Taylor, bravo!!!
Animal print is a huge trend for fall. I find it so crazy that so many people I know are afraid to wear this trend. The key to wearing animal print is wearing it in small doses. If you wear it head to toe you're going to look like that animal...and that's not the look we're going for! :-P
Today the Five Fashionistas are showing you how to embrace this trend, and wear it right.
Jen- If I could be any animal in the jungle, I would see myself being a monkey since I love moving around and I can get pretty obnoxious.
Diane- I'd be a zebra---kind of nervous, yet rather social.
Issa- I'd want to be... a gazelle... graceful and exotic!
Mel- I'd be an animal from the south, that way I know I'd be in nice weather all the time.
Tramanh- I'd be a monkey - quick witted, playful, and humorous.

Claudia Schiffer was recently seen out and about in London looking beyond chic in jeans. Lots of layers and great accessories are her secret to this amazing look that is perfect for fall. I *love* this outfit so very much...I had to put an affordable version of this look together for my readers. Click the collage below and see where you can find the items to help you get a similar style.
Over the last few months my hair has looked terrible. I'll be the first to say it. I was born with very thick hair and lately it just looks thinner and weak and not pretty. I have heard a lot of positive things about Samy Fat Hair products and thought I'd give it a try. I had nothing to lose! So last weekend I picked up a bottle of the Samy Fat Hair "0" Calories Thickening Spray from my local CVS. I gotta say, the spray works MIRACLES! My hair feels healthy and thick. This spray has definitely earned a spot into my morning beauty routine.
Have you tried any of Samy Fat Hair products? Are there any other brands of thickening sprays that you love? Please feel free to share.
I recently asked my blogger friends Meredith and Lindsay from Cubicle Chic about the looks they are loving for fall. They were kind enough to write up this guest post and share their amazing looks with us here at Snapshot Fashion. Thanks so much girls!
When Diane asked us to do a post for Snapshot Fashion that was fall-inspired, I immediately thought of this dress. Its colors and pattern remind me of autumn foliage, possibly seen as a reflection in some body of water... in the mountains... while leaf peeping and drinking hot apple cider... ahhh how I love fall in New England! Because the dress is on the short side, leggings are an obvious choice to make the outfit appropriate for leaving the house. I have a love-hate relationship with leggings, though, because I often feel like some kind of trendy teenage girl when I wear them. So how to make the the outfit come across as more mature? Throw on a pleather jacket, and suddenly I felt like an adult! Worn with my Kelly & Katie sandals (sometimes it’s still just warm enough!), this outfit makes the transition from summer into fall.
Dress: Forever 21, $12
Jacket: Unknown brand and borrowed from a friend
Belt: came with $40 vintage dress
Shoes: Kelly & Katie, $35
Watch: Vintage, $10
This sweater is definitely a piece I wish I could take out more often. It’s cozy, but not as warm as a conventional sweater robe due to the large “knit” holes; because New Yorkers experience a shortened spring and autumn (when compared with summer and winter), the span of time I have to wear it is extremely limited. This past Columbus Day weekend proved to be the perfect fall weather, though, so I was stoked to take it for a spin. I always forget that it has a hood - one of the most fun things to wear in the fall! It also goes nicely with this top I bought at the start of the summer. The top was a great value because it goes great with jeans, looks stylish with piled-on jewelry and for it’s high comfort factor. The only thing I don’t like about it is how low it goes... once in a while, I have to adjust it to ensure my pretty underthings aren’t showing!
Top: H&M, $25 (ish)
Jeans/Jeggings: AG, $85 (on sale)
Boots: Frye, $250 (so worth the investment)
Sweater: Unknown, can’t remember price (bought 4 years ago!)

This week we're talking about everyone's favorite fall accessory...SCARVES! No matter how you wear them, they always add a little something to any outfit. Check out how the five of us rock this key piece while staying true to our individual styles.
Mel- Whenever I find myself wearing solid pieces head to toe, I throw in a scarf to mix it up.
Issa- I'd wear this outfit to work, brunch, or a night out at Houston Fashion Week (which I did)!
Tramanh- Mixing textures and patterns with a scarf makes a cool club-worthy accessory.
Diane- I love wearing a scarf to add a pop of color, or to take place of a necklace.
Jen- This outfit is definitely something I'd wear if I was going to meet up with a couple of friends for a cup of coffee on a brisk, autumn day.
Alexa Chung's current obsession---blue dresses! She was seen attending Paris Fashion Week in a number of blue frocks. Which of them are your favorite? Personally, I think she looks great in ALL of them (and just about anything she wears!). Looks like blue is the new black.
Is your wardrobe in the need of a blue makeover? I put together a list of my MUST HAVE dresses of the moment. Click on the collage below to see where you can purchase them.
Last night was the event at Bella Jules! Thanks so much to the people that came out for it. Juli, Bella Jules owner, had taken 20% off of everything in the store last night! I got a fabulous new coat, that I'm sure I'll be showing everyone in upcoming posts. Now if it would just get about 20-25 degrees cooler so I could wear it. Cool fall weather can't get here soon enough!
Juli and her dog (a yorkie-poo...awww!) that loved giving me kisses.
GIRLS NIGHT OUT!
