Digital Studio The $400 Budget 01 of 13 mptvimages.com, courtesy, mcv Three InStyle staffers give us the lowdown on what they're craving for fall. The catch? Each one has a limited amount to spend ($400, $2,000, $4,000). Over the next four months, you'll see just how they strategize to round out their wardrobes. 02 of 13 My Fall Inspirations Time Inc. Digital Studio Fall is by far my favorite season. I like getting cozy in jeans, sweaters, boots, and socks. And autumnal hues are easy to work with. From top to bottom:I'm just so into birds and feathers right now. I'm searching for a taxidermy peacock for my apartment. They're so beautiful. I loved the layering at the Haider Ackerman show-and the colors, especially the dark peacock blue. One of my best friends lives in Turkey, and I'm dying to visit her again. I can't wait to search for kilims in the Istanbul markets. -Wendy Wallace, senior market editor 03 of 13 Leather Leggings Time Inc.
