Spring/summer 2011 is all about the neutral accents in colors like, nude, blush and camel. Neutral accents are great because they go with everything that’s in your closet and is a great way to update your wardrobe. Try buying a neutral color bag, belt or shoe( or buy all of them just don’t wear them all at once)

I picked these Nude colored Michael Kors sandals because they have a nice edgy zipper detail and they r on sale! So get em quick! The next are awesome camel colored sandals from forever 21. They have stunning cut outs and look like genuine leather! The handbag I chose is from Nicole Lee and it is a deep blush color, the details on this bag are amazing and you’ll want to carry it through to summer!

The lace top is one of the key pieces I look forward to getting for spring. Anyone can look good in the right lace top. here I give you 2 versions. Free People’s body hugging top is perfect worn alone or under your favorite jacket and at $58 is a great price!
Forever21’s version is just as sweet and $19.80 who can’t afford to be on trend!

Some of us with a psychic fashion sense may have saw this coming and have a motorcycle experienced jacket stashed in the back of thier closets (;) like moi). For those deprived of a fashion sixth sense, here are some alternatives to the pricey models on the Market!

1. JCPenny’s and thier anti-trend vibe have already began to clearance off thier motorcycle jackets. A 72 to 105 dollar jacket is priced right now from 34.99!

This worthington Jacket is on sale right now for 34.99

2.Macy’s is also onto sales mode with the motorcycle jacket with clearance starting at 26.99.

3. Forget Forever 21 and H&M for this trend. Forever 21 is still in cold weather mode and is offering wool versions of the motorcycle jacket. H&M’s motorcycle is priced at 84.00 and its lace counterpart is 59.00!

Here the department stores have won the day! So run out now and get those clearance jackets; you will need them this spring!

Never before has animal skin been more trendy!! Its been seen in all levels of accessories this fall: handbags, shoes, belts, and even clothing!! No its no surprise that we are all searching stores for this slick print and it could get pricey!! No worries though because I have trended through the shops for you to bring the best priced leopard accessories from shoes, handbags and even scarfs.

Shoes

With kitten heels in for the fall, we can look at a wide range of shoe types for the every look.

Giuseppe Zanotti Design shoes
$995.

We love these leather shoes but we are only looking for the print and not the fact it is leather. Instead of paying for materials like leather, opt for a cotton fabrics like this Target pair.

 

Target - Merona Leopard Maudie Flat - 24.99

 

If you want a little heel, go for Sam and Libby!! They have them at Sears which I know is not know for their shoes but recently they cleared out their shoe section for more trendy designs (although, i did snag a pair of shiny oxfords for 4.99).

 

Sam and Libby from Sears - 32.99 (on sale now)

 

Handbags

The fur vest has graced every runway this fall and we loved the fact that it quickly trickled down to the lower end stores. It is amazing that I thought this trend had peaked at two years ago when I found a molted brown version at the lower end boutique at Sawgrass mall. Here it is back in full force in a range of prices.

1. The high end fur vest

Alice + Olivia added metallic charm with fur and priced it at $396.00. Chanel, Prada and Nordstrom offered prices in this range and higher.

2. The mid-priced fur vest

Steve Madden did it right and well with the use of luxe fur and bright bold colors. O-Fur Multi Vest, $78 (Steve Madden)

We find alot of fur vest in the 65 to 98 dollars. Stores like Macy’s, Dillard’s and even Sears offered a variety of styles and brands.

3. The low-end fur vest

Charlotte Russe has this feathery vest for 39.50 (above). Kmart has a Jacquelyn Smith brand for 35. Forever 21 has fur vest starting at $22.50(below).

The usual part of this list is that faux fur quality doesn’t shift much from the extremely expensive to the low end. In fact the main difference is just how much fur they use and the delightful play on texture and color seen in the higher end furs. Still, our lower end prices are a lot easier.

This holiday season is all about the sequins andwhat better way to show off that glitz then on a pump! Especially the cool two-toned sequin designs that have been seen all over the place. These two designs I chose are awesome in high and low end!

I never thought I’d speak the words lanvin and H&M in the same sentence but yes I can now! The amazing designer Alber Elbaz has teamed     up with the swedish clothing company H&M to bring you the frugal fashionista an amazing collection of tulle dresses, jewelry, shoes and handbags.  The prices range from $19.99 for accessories to $250 for a dress. Now considering that the french designer’s regular line can cost upwards of thousands of dollars I say grab all you can from H&M! The collection debuts in stores November 20.

Its all about denim this fall! All washes in jeans, accessories and most important jackets! At the same time rocker will not die (Thank God!!) so for the third seaon in a row accessories and clothing with studs and zippers are still in. So I’ve decided to find outerwear that combines the two trends…. Denim motorcycle jackets! Wear them dressed up or down but these 2 versions will be a splurge AND gentle on your wallet!

Since military has been showing up all over the runways this fall and we talked about it in our “trends” section; I decided that I must give you a military jacket “get-it-for-less”. Suprisingly I found two versions that are both quite affordable. One, the military jacket  from American Eagle being dirt cheap and the other from Bloomingdales you have to be able to drop a “Benjamin” on.

All the rage this fall are Oxfords for Women. This shoe staple is usually reserved for business men only but designers this year decided since women seem to be wearing the pants lately why not give them shoes as well. I’ve chosen to versions that are a little  more soft than more masculine versions I’ve seen on the runways, one by Sam Eldman that adds sequins and another from Payless’ newest designer to offer a low end line Isobel Toledo that chose to use cut outs for a sexier version..
