Style-ish Fall Buys!

I love fall fashion so much and have been happily buying some great fall pieces.  Here are some of my recent purchases and since some of them are on sale, I wanted to share before they sold out as sometimes it takes awhile for my newly purchased stuff to make it into a lookbook.

First, my two recent boot purchases that I'm SO excited about.
Roberto del Carlo Over the Knee Boot
I got these in brown and I am in love.  They are the perfect height and the over the knee length is perfect even for my shorty legs!
These are my "holy grail" boots.  I have looked for a great platform knee-high boot with a perfect heel (not too thin, not too thick) for ages but have never found anything as perfect as these.  I got them in black (sold out online) and they are to. die. for.  They are much prettier in person, that picture doesn't do them justice at all! 
Here's a sneak preview of them on.  I am wearing thigh high socks with them so they don't really go that high!  (Please excuse the mess, eek!  That's why I don't usually take pictures in this area)

Just a handful of the Madewell purchases that I made this past weekend...
Such a pretty girly blouse and will be perfect for work but also way cute paired with jeans too!

Madewell Triple Tiered Tank -on sale!
Paired with a blazer and a long necklace, this tank is adorable and a great fall layering piece.

Madewell Corded Stretch Tank -now $29.99!
The embellishments make this top really fun and a perfect way to add sparkle to your outfit.

And my latest beauty tool that I HAVE to share.
Tanda Clear Acne Light Therapy Treatment

Thank you so much to Gabby from Tractentenberg and Co. for sending me this acne treatment tool after I mentioned my problem skin.  My skin has been breaking out so much lately, mainly I think due to stress and travel.  I was desperate for something to not only take care of my current blemishes but also prevent more breakouts.  The Tanda is a light treatment tool that all you do is just hold the tool up to your problem areas for 3 minutes and a blue light will come on and basically treat it!  I'm sure there are more technical terms to it but that's just how I think of it working!  For a better explanation, here's what the description says:
"The device's Blue Light LED produces a targeted 414 nm beam that kills acne-causing P.acnes bacteria, helping to eliminate current imperfections, keep future breakouts at bay, and improve skin texture, color, and tone."

I've used it for a week now and I am super impressed.  I had one giant blemish come in and I used the Tanda that night and by day two it was smaller and by day 3 it was basically gone.  I've never gotten results like that with anything before and I've tried a lot of products and tools.  The Tanda also has a separate anti-aging interchangeable head that I have ordered with the Sephora Friends and Family.  I can't wait to get it and see how it works on my fine lines and wrinkles!

Have you bought anything lately that you are excited about?  I would love to know!  If you write a post about it, let me know and I'll link to it here!

p.s.  I had a few of you ask about the nail colors in my purple ombre manicure.  Sorry for the delay, I finally looked up the colors.
China Glaze Flying Dragon | China Glaze Grape Pop | OPI Do You Lilac It | China Glaze Matte Magic



**The Tanda was sent to me as a gift, please see my disclosure on gifts from companies**
