Turning Heads Linkup:Fall Trends: NYFW Potters Clay-A Satin Midi Dress from Mango: Look 2



Hello Ladies

I hope everyone has had a nice weekend. Today’s look I was excited to style. Again, looking ahead to NYFW ( my mom is going, I can’t this year) and some of the Fall Trends, this Pumpkin Spice/Rust shade is hot on the runways! Mmm. My husband laughs as each fall I get drawn in to everything “pumpkin spice.” Candles, bake goods, coffee.. lattes ( of course) and now clothing. ย This shade is indicitive of Fall, its rust colored beauty can be complimented by so many shades: olive, black, mustard, camel, browns., metlot , burgundy Another trend that would work quite well with this dress, is wearing a turtleneck under the dress. This is quite popular on the runway, and can take a dress from another season, into fall/Winter.ย If you missed my NYFW LOOK #1 inspiration: Fall Florals, click HERE.


Mango is one of my favorite stores, much like Zara, there is a similar style. When I saw this dress, I thought that color would be fabulous with my hair, for Fall etc. I didn’t place the order though. Then I saw it on Annette, and by the time I bought it, was on sale for a mere $30! Good timing! Later in the Fall-Winter season, I would do just that, wear a turtleneck top or sweater under the dress for more color and versatility, not to mention, on trend!


Today, it is still quite warm in NC, so my plan was to share this Pumpkin Spice trend. The richness and color is one of my favorites! The Pantone Institute calls it ” Potter’s Clay” and I could honestly have a closet full of this color! A bit at a time though.. This is a dress that, since sleeveless, and style-wise can be worn in the spring, and then in the fall-winter with a change of acessories, shoes and as mentioned above, a sweater underneath change to the Fall Season.

    I have always loved rust on redheads and this shade is to die for on you. That is the most stunning dress. Amazing satin, perfect length and style and that slit. What a steal of a price too. I miss Mango from Europe. Your gorgeous necklace and shoes go so well. I need some Potters Clay in my closet. Oh and how cool your mamma attended NYFW. Tell us more. =)

    Welcome by and join my new Thursday Moda linkup today and every Thursday. Come share this gorgeous outfit there. Thanks, Ada. =)

I have bought a few fall pieces from Mango and do like them. So glad you like the outfit is is one of my favorite dresses for sure! My mom had a great time, I will talk a bit about it next week. xx

    Absolutely gorgeous Jess.
    I had to laugh when you said you can just put a turtleneck under this dress. My initial response is a jacket or cardigan over it instead. But just last week (for a future blog photo) I tried to think differently and that’s what I did. See….you can teach an old dog new tricks!!

      Posted at 09:11h, 20 September Reply

      Haha! “Old dog” who are you kidding! Spring chicken is more like it! ( wink) I know, I would typically go with a jacket too, but have seen much of the turtlneck under midi dress or slip dresses on the runway and thought, “great idea!” It would have to be a thin one, but I would love a wine colored one under this. Have a fab day Jodie!
