Target Peep Toe Wedges

I have to thank my mom for this find! I must have inherited my love for "steals and deals" from her. Growing up, we did frequent the T.J Maxx down the street :)

The black peep toe wedges above are totally in style and really cute on. For only $29.99, these are a must have for the season. I think these would look adorable with black tights and a cute Fall dress, bell bottom jeans and a blouse, or even skinny black jeans and a tunic. These shoes have endless possibilities!

Happy Shopping!! :)

Reader Request

I had my first reader request. Whoo-hoo. She wanted me to find a tweed blazer under $100.00...well I finally found one and then I couldn't resist posting another great find!

Urban Outfitters has the tweed blazer above for only $49.00. I love the look in the picture and how they have styled it with colored jeans and just a simple white T-shirt.

The second blazer is actually herringbone and you can find it on piperlime for $69.00.

Happy Shopping!! :)

Sculptural Cuff

I have been looking for a "larger" cuff bracelet for a long time. I started looking when I saw Gwyneth Paltrow on "Glee" this past season and she was wearing a beautiful long black jersey dress (probably Ralph Lauren or something...) and she had two over sized gold cuffs on each wrists. It looked so chic!

After much searching, I finally found the "one" at Ann Taylor. I especially liked the price at only $68.00. I think this bracelet would be a good buy for any one's wardrobe!!!!

Happy Shopping!! :)

Urban Outfitters

Did you know that Free People, Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters are all owned by Urban Outfitters Inc.? Kind of obvious once you think about it. They are all different in their own way, but definitely intertwined. I love them all for their distinctiveness

Urban Outfitters has always been the more edgy and dark one of the three. I wouldn't classify myself as either one of these things, but I definitely can find a thing or two there that I like. I appreciate how different it is from the mainstream.

When shopping online recently, I found these pieces above that would look great with the rest of your Fall/Winter wardrobe. I love the chandelier earring for only $18.00. They would add punch to any outfit this Fall whether you were dressing up to an event or dressing down with jeans. The purse was so adorable I couldn't resist or the price tag at$34.00. The cross-body bag is so in for the Fall and I just loved the print on this one making it more of a casual day bag. The last item is an adorable sweater wrap. I love the option shown above, but it does come in another color if these colors don't fit your palette :)

Happy Shopping! :)

Black Wedges

I have been trying to find some cute black wedges for the Fall. I wanted a black shoe that would look cute with a dress and then I could put it with jeans for a casual look. While I was perusing http://www.piperlime.com/ the other day, I found two cute pairs that are just what I am looking for.

The first pair is by Seychelles and even though they are $110.00 (a bit over my price range...) I really liked the style. The would look really cute under some high waisted flare jeans (I know...flare is back!) and a loose fitting blouse.

The second pair is by Kensie Girl and is definitely within my budget at just $69.00. I would pair these with black skinny jeans and a blazer. I also think these would look cute with a long sleeve wrap dress in the Fall.

Happy Shopping! :)

Lipstick for Everyone

While I was on vacation, I read a ton of magazines. According to most of them, this lipstick from Poppy King for J.Crew is supposed to be a great color for everyone. The website calls it "the last lipstick you will ever buy." If you are in the market for a new lipstick color, go for it!

Happy Shopping! :)

My New Fall Favs at Old Navy

I constantly stalk the Old Navy website and visit one of the stores as least once a week. It has to be one of my favorite all time stores! I was perusing the website the other day and saw these three things that are must haves for the Fall.

I love the utilitarian vest. I think this could be layered under a sweater with jeans and boots or worn with a maxi dress or skirt like the one shown above. The buffalo checkered button down shirt is a great buy for those crisp cooler days (hopefully sooner than we think...) This shirt would actually look adorable with the vest and some jeans. Last, but not least, the maxi skirt is cut to be very flattering since it will cinch you in at the waist and would look great with just a plain white tee and some brown clogs!

Happy Shopping! :)

P.S. if you buy one of these items online by tomorrow (8/19), you will get 25% off your purchases...whoo-hoo!

Mango by JC Penney

I have always been a fan of Mango since I lived in Spain where I first discovered the brand. Since then, I have only seen Mango stores in Chicago or New York. Who would have thought that Mango would actually be in our own city of Memphis? I have ventured out to the JC Penney at Wolfchase and they surprisingly have a great supply of the clothing line and lots of jewelry which I could not seem to find online at http://www.jcpenney.com/.

The articles of clothing above caught my eye because I thought they could be good transitional pieces for your wardrobe.

The tie-blouse is a must for the Fall. If I have seen this style in all the magazines! This one is great because it has a fun colorful floral print that would look adorable with jeans and brown clogs. For only $35.92, it is a steal!

I love the dress in the second picture. Not only because I love the neutral print, but because it has pockets. I am obsessed with dresses with pockets! This dress is a little pricey for my budget, ($79.92) but it has endless possibilities. I love the way they have it styled in the picture. All you need is brown riding boots and you are set for a casual look. For a dressier look, I think it would look great with brown suede pumps and dressier gold jewelry.

The last picture is a chambray skirt for $55.92. You can't go wrong with having anything chambray in your Fall wardrobe! You could start wearing it now with a striped sleeveless tank or with some boots and a poncho when the weather gets colder.

Happy Shopping! :)

Gone To The Wild Wild West

I will be leaving for the Wild Wild West tomorrow and I wanted to post some adorable "Western" clothing items to keep you all satisfied until I get back :)

I love the scarf from Forever 21 not only because it is $8.80, but because it is a lightweight scarf that will be perfect for early Fall and definitely the Winter. I actually think it would look adorable with the blue skirt from Anthropologie that is on sale for $49.50. All you would have to do was put on a white t-shirt, some boots (or black clogs...more to come on this new obsession of mine) and fun earrings.

The sweater wrap in the adorable Navajo print is from Francesca's Collections. I have always found that they have great jackets and fun jewelry. I liked this wrap because it was $38.00 and a great statement piece over all black or all white. I liked the pop of color the girl is wearing in the picture and would definitely add colorful jewelry to this outfit.

Happy Shopping and Yee Haw!!! :)

Linea Pelle for Target

Target has yet to disappoint me when they bring in a designer to design more affordable, yet still fashionable items for people like me. I was in Target the other day when I spotted these purses. True to my usual Target shopping spree, I bought something for me! I didn't realize until I got home that I had bought a purse that was part of the Linea Pelle line for Target. Linea Pelle designs great looking purses that are bohemian chic in my opinion.

The first purse is perforated leather handbag in an olive green color perfect for Fall. The second purse is a cute cross body bag with adorable studs to give it that extra edginess. The third purse is a great tote to use as a purse or even a bag for your ipad or laptop. The best part is that all these handbags are $35.00 or less!

Happy Shopping!

P.S. Missoni is coming to Target September 13th!!! Whoo-hoo!

I have been doing my research and colorblocking is apparently one of the big trends for the Fall. While I was at a Sephora in Wolfchase the other day, I stumbled into The Limited. They seemed to take this trend to the max and had some really cute things.

The first picture is a colorblock boxy tee that is $46.90 and would be a great buy for the Fall. I saw this top in the store and it was really cute in person. It would look great dressed up with black skinny jeans and suede pumps or dressed down with regular skinny jeans and maybe some snakeskin flats. The colors of the top get me in the mood for Fall!!!

The second picture is of a jersey dress that I am in love with. This dress is $79.90 and is a great transition piece for us Memphians. Since it is still hot here in the beginning of October, I thought this dress would look cute as is with sandals up until it gets a bit chillier at night and then you can pair it with jean jacket and flats.

Happy Shopping!
