As we put this issue together New York Fashion Week was well underway and as hard as we tried (okay, not that hard), we just couldn’t pull our eyes away from the blogs and websites showing off what the big city had to offer. And then, as fate would have it, we heard of a store in Lansing — The Lansing Mall to be exact — that had a line of clothing designed right here in the Greater Lansing Area. Since the clothes at Kingdom Dreams are designed in our Home Sweet Home, we figured we’d feature three looks by the designers to wear in your Home Sweet Home. Whether curled up on the couch reading your favorite books, or hitting the town for a few errands, this look will keep you warm, cozy and chic this fall. Complete the look with a bit of sparkle in the necklace, tough black booties and a great bag. Gray skinny jeans, $44.50; top, $47.50; sweater vest, $47.50; necklace, $26.50; bag, $220 all by Kingdom Dreams. Booties, $64.99 by Mudd Footwear, available at Kohl’s. House parties aren’t what they used to be in college. When you host a gathering remember that it’s not just your decorations that matter, what you wear matters too. Try this unique dress, paired with a great piece of jewelry and killer two-tone shoes. Hosting your get together at a local wine bar? Don’t forget to grab this great bag for the road. Dress, $147; necklace, $29.50; bag $160 all by Kingdom Dreams. Shoes, $64.99 by Candies available at Kohl’s. Bring some of the rich, warm tones of the fall leaves into your wardrobe by using accessories like this great bag and bangle. A warm knit dress can be paired with leggings to keep stylish when you are laying low at home or heading out for a casual dinner with that special someone. Dress, $57.50; bag, $120; bangle, $18.50 by Kingdom Dreams. Knee-high boots with red zipper details, $99.99 by Candies, available at Kohl’s.
