Brooks Brothers Red Fleece

It being the first day of fall, I thought I’d share some fun news. This past weekend something very exciting happened…drum roll please.

I made my first Autumn 2014 purchase!

I was wandering down in the Financial District near my old apartment after attending Oyster Fest 2014, when I stumbled upon the FiDi Brooks Brothers. I have always been a fan of Brooks Brothers, but found their price range to be a little too high for a 23 year old, just-starting-out (hope you’re reading this Mom and Dad) New Yorker. I was on the phone with my best friend at the time, who reminded me that they were having a 25% off sale. The moment I heard the word sale, I couldn’t resist checking it out. I headed straight for the women’s section, and finally had the opportunity to see their Red Fleece Collection in person. The verdict?

I loved it.

The price range is so much more reasonable than their other collections, and the style is a bit trendier than typical BB. I got a little carried away and tried on a few outfits, but immediately fell in love with their “Long Sleeve Cotton Black Watch Dress“. It was super soft and comfortable, and the dark green and navy blue plaid was perfect for the fall. I’m on the shorter side so the dress was a little long, but otherwise it was a great fit.

When I realized I had spent more time in the store than was socially acceptable, I made an impulse decision and bought the dress. In my defense, 25% off? Can’t say no to that.

A few other looks I saw in store and loved:
