Cozy Fall Knits

Hey, hey!
So Fall is the perfect time to throw on a cozy sweater in lieu of a jacket or coat; the weather is in that mild period between warm and chilly, and a knit is a great solution.
You can go with several different options:
Pair a warm sweater with a pair of dark washed jeans, a la Jill Scott...
Or throw a cool cardigan or wrap over your favorite dress like Rachel Roy or Halle Berry...
Slip on a cute sweater dress like Eva or Rihanna...
Or get knitty with accessories and rock a cozy hat, a la Beyonce...

Random What Nots:
* Get excited! The Fashion Bomb is wayyy overdo for a contest! Stay tuned for details.
* Ran into this great quote on a cool blog, The Brown Girl Journal, and had to include. From Tyler Perry...
...“When you start to dream and see yourself in a better place, don't share it with everybody. Long ago I stopped telling people my dreams because I would always run into dream stealers--people who are so miserable and so mad at the world that all they can do is bring you bitter words of hopelessness. Stay away from these people! They are poison.” Ok!
* I don't know, but I think this blog is kinda funny...
*The blog Chic and Untroubled talks about the Salt N Pepa show...
...am I the only one who thinks Pep looks like Janet Jackson at times? I say nayno to the nose job!
