Replacing the quiet elegance of the dark suit and tie with the casual indifference of these muted earth tones is a form of fashion suicide, but, uh, call me crazy — on you it works.

I love Fall.  The leaves are gorgeous this year and it's making me excited for Halloween.  I rode the elevator today with a man carrying an extremely accurate Poppin' Fresh jack 'o lantern.  Had the hat and everything.  Not sure what the story was there, but the guy looked super serious for someone carrying a pumpkin fashioned to look like Poppin' Fresh.
