I Shop All Day for a Living—These Are the Coolest Things I've Seen This Month

The end of the month is always bittersweet for me. There's, of course, that "where did the time go?" feeling, but there's also a sense of accomplishment for having another 30 or so days in the books, and it means I get to do this story again. I know one shouldn't choose favorites, but I'd be lying if I didn't say this was the roundup I most look forward to doing every four to five weeks. There are no rules, no restrictions—just cool pieces and good vibes. And depending on what you're shopping for to complete your winter wardrobe at the moment, there very well may be a find or two in here for you, too. Regardless, you'll be entertained at the very least because these are the most interesting items I came across this October, and that's saying a lot. Ahead you'll find the 38 pieces—from statement outerwear and party dresses to knits, pants, and next-level boots—that stopped me in my tracks and that you simply had to see.

Totême knew what it was doing with this one.

My two favorite pant styles, together in one.

The color is amazing, but the fit is the unsung hero here.

If you can't make it to Paris, at least you can pretend like you did.

The celeb-loved ring now comes in bracelet form.

Where were you when you first realized fashion oven mitts existed?

It also comes in brown, and I'm truly torn between them.

This is what I like to call winter accessory goals.

I could easily fill this entire slideshow with just Jacquemus.

Why not adorn your hair with a sparkly, green clip?

I look forward to velvet weather all year.

This is one of the prettiest dresses I've seen in a while.

The perfect shade of taupe-ish gray.

When something is new but marked down, I don't ask any questions.

I'm always game for a white-sneaker upgrade.

The holidays can't come soon enough.
