{State}ment Friday and New Arrivals!

I love bringing new arrivals to you each week! {State}ment Friday is one of my favorite days of the week and Fall is my favorite season to buy for.  It is possible I've gone completely overboard.  Hey, what can I say? It is my job to keep us looking fly all year long but especially in the Fall!  

Today the gorgeous ruffled sleeve, black blouse and deep teal jeggings are making their debut! I chose this top as a Fall transition piece when I went to market in Las Vegas this past February.  It was my first time at Magic and it lived up to the name.  The atmosphere is amazing.  You can feel the excitement the minute you arrive. Over a thousand vendors (no kidding) bring the best of their Spring, Summer and Fall lines and every fashionista is in heaven! 

I always plan my route and make sure to visit my favorite's.  I also make sure to check out a few new labels as well. Gotta keep it fresh! Being able to touch and feel a piece before I offer it at State of Lovely is key.  I can't always do that, but developing a list of labels that I trust and that I know offer good quality piece, helps me buy from home with confidence. 

This trip, I met the gals at Polagram.  I was so impressed with their selection and quality and definitely this blouse! I always want to buy everything in black. It takes some restraint on my part for that not to happen! This piece was different.  I knew I wanted it. Although it is basic black, the fabric and the cut of this piece make it special.  The ruffled sleeve hits at the perfect place, just above the elbow. Featuring a subtle high-low hem that provides a little extra coverage in back.  I love the simple neck line. It is perfect for a statement necklace which are HOT this season!  Did I mention this is fully lined?  Doesn't it just keep getting better? 

I paired this with a deep teal jegging. I'm obsessed.  High-waisted.  Super stretchy.  Gorgeous color. Great price point.  I promise you will love the cut, fit and quality of these too.  Must have.  Say it with me, Lovelies, MUST HAVE.

Remember my trip to Target this week?  I picked up this adorable floppy hat for $19.99. It is perfect, really! And the perfect addition to this outfit.  Black, ruffled sleeve top +  deep teal jeggings + floppy hat = anything but basic!
