My friend and I were just talking about how fast time has flown by-- there are already Halloween stores popping up in San Diego. It seems crazy to think that we are going to be in fall before we know it. In order to make a smooth transition into fall it helps to take it slow. Gearing up for it, I decided to embrace and spotlight studded fashionable items that make the transition fun and worth it. Plus, this trend also is goes hand in hand with the vests I featured last week.

Studs are popular, making an appearance on everything from jeans to bracelets. The way I see it, if it looks good on you, and you feel like you will wear it, then buy it and wear it! It’s always nice to switch up the look anyway. Stop making people yawn by wearing the same kind of clothing all the time. Sometimes, you have to break the habit!

My first feature is sure to break the habit with its heavy, rocked out personality. The “Traxx” shoes by Steve Madden are very high-heeled, and belong to a woman who knows how to walk in heels. These shoes are complex looking, which gives them sex appeal. These multi-studded black killer heels are perfect with some leggings or a simple short dress. Every gal needs some shocker shoes that make you taller and make your legs look thinner. Why miss out on the fun? …I didn’t think so!

For those of you who like to wear style around their waist, I found a nice very casual wearable belt. The Vine & Thistle Allover Embellished Wide Belt is the perfect width. It’s not too thin, or too wide, as some studded belts can be. It’s something that definitely would wear well with some shorts, over a long tee-shirt dress, or with a pair of jeans. Either way, this belt is reliable every time. There isn’t a moment it will let you down with its metal studs and geometric design across the leather belt. Trust me, you’ll never wonder why you bought this belt once it’s wrapped around you.

Getting simpler, and paying attention to detail, I found an awesome wallet. Maybe it’s because I’m in the market for a wallet, but whatever inspired me to search, I found one! I like this Mixed Fabric Studded Wallet from Bebe because it’s unique… and I love the gunmetal color. The wallet is made with mixed fabrics-- there are little rectangular snake print patches with little tiny studs. It definitely has more than enough room with a back zip coin, an interior zip pocket, three billfolds, and 8 slots for cards. When pulling out this wallet you will be envied, and known for being a detail-oriented fashionista.
