Every fall, we survey our closet full of cute boots that we bought last year and decide that we need just one more pair. This year, that pair will likely be Vince Camuto's Sultra Bootie ($169). The thicker heel won't send us flying when we encounter uneven sidewalks, and the gold details add just enough visual interest without breaking up the miles-long visual line created when we pair them with black skinnies or tights.

This Paper Photo Frame with Mini Clothespin Kit ($5) would make for a great way to show off some of those photographs you have lying around... that is, if anybody routinely printed their photos anymore. That said, we think this super affordable kit makes it totally worthwhile to get prints of a few of your favorite snaps.

The slogan of this natural beauty company is, "Skincare clean enough to eat," and with flavors like peppermint white chocolate, we're tempted to take them up on that. This shave cream ($15) not only smells like Christmas-y baked goods, it helps eliminate razor burn and moisturizes as you go, so there's no need to irritate your legs by applying lotion afterward.

We love the kimono tops we've been seeing on fashion blogs, but we also don't want to invest too much on a fleeting trend. Enter: Forever 21. This floral number ($23) would look killer paired with leather leggings and a pair of ankle booties, and by the time it falls apart in a few months it'll be out of style anyway.

Unfortunately, trail mix and freeze-dried stroganoff is not enough to sustain you on that fall backpacking trip you have planned. If you want to keep your energy levels up, pack a canister of this Hikers Tea ($14) and sip it around the campfire at night. It'll restore your depleted electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals, and it doesn't contain caffeine so you won't lie awake all night having panic attacks every time you hear a creaking twig.

Don't fret: using this new lip balm duo from OCC ($18) won't make you look like a KISS superfan. The dark side (Tarred) enhances your lips' natural hue, while the light side (Feathered) can be used under your lipstick to make it apply true-to-color. While they both serve different purposes, both sides make your lips super soft and healthy!

So the Strasbourg Chair ($899-1,235) is on the pricey side. We're beginning to realize that furniture options are either IKEA inexpensive or Restoration Hardware sell-a-liver spendy. Now that we've accepted that fact (and are recovering from elective surgery), we're psyched to get to pick out a pattern design and finish for this chair. We can truly make it our own, and design it around what we need to make our living space look lush and inviting.

It's time to stash your pastel cotton scarves in the back of your closet for several months. Le sigh... see ya later, pretties! Of course, that means you're going to need to grab a few new scarves in a more fall weather appropriate color palette. We like the Elodie Printed Scarf ($125) because it's dark and lovely, and would stand out dramatically with a camel-colored coat, but it's not so heavy that it'll make you sweat on those warmer fall afternoons.

We basically want every single card in this hilarious Etsy shop, but if we had to pick our favorite, we'd choose the one bearing our fellow food-loving lady writer Liz Lemon ($4). Instead of sending it, we'll probably stick it in a frame and place it on the wall above the couch so we can gaze at it while working on our night cheese and drinking Funky Juice.

As perpetual sufferers of resting b*tchface, we could use a reminder to smile every once in a while. We hope that keeping this mirror ($12) in our bags might just reduce the number of times we're asked, "What's wrong?" by strangers on the street.

Why should Christmas get the monopoly on decorative trees? Trees for every holiday, we say! We can't wait to put this Spooky Halloween Willow Tree ($90-170) in our living room come October - the orange lights will add a festive glow to our annual costume party, and we may go a step further and decorate it with these ornaments for maximum creepiness.

We're always going on and on about how much we looove fall, but when it comes down to it, what we really love are the elements of fall that only happen toward the end of the season. September is almost never cool and crisp, and we often sweat through warm days because we just had to wear corduroy and combat boots. Don't be as foolish as we are. Wear a pair of ASOS After Hours Ankle Boots ($72). They've got all the stylings of a sexy boot, but the cutout buckle uppers will prevent you from getting swamp foot when the afternoon peaks at 79 degrees.

Origami is the ancient Japanese art of paper folding - and what better way to practice it than by making tiny shoes, hats, suits, and frocks? This Fashion Origami Set ($10) comes with 100 squares of colorful origami paper and an instruction booklet for creating paper runway pieces from boots to bow ties.

The first step to fixing your skin issues is admitting that those heavily filtered Instagram photos are not an accurate representation of what your real-life friends see. The next step is using this mask trio ($45) religiously. The Cucumber Gel Mask soothes irritated skin, the Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask tackles signs of aging, and the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask exfoliates and brightens your skin. After few weeks, you won't need to rely on "Amaro" to look your best anymore.

We don't suggest you actually put a poisonous element onto your Tombstone Slate Cheese Board ($15). We doubt your party guests will appreciate it. Instead, stack it high with punny foods, like ghoulish Gouda, wicked White Stilton, and Munster cheeses.
