It’s sad to see Summer go ( not for me as I adore cooler weather and avoid the sun like a vampire) but at least you can look forward to end of season sales and some pre Fall sales as well.
This Fall we are once again seeing Global Nomad take over the runways..(think tribal designs, heavy embroidery, tapestry fabrics and furs; real and faux) Every model looked like she just came back from an exotic vacation and was dripping with heavy beading and lots of ethnic prints.. So I have put together a series of blogs based on these trends and how to find them; all as always will be under $50! So if you haven’t tried any of these looks you can do so without breaking the bank..
The tapestry tote is so pretty and will take you all the way into next season as it’s look is so versatile and the print can be worn with jeans or dressed up with a nice little black dress or you can Anna Sui it and go head to toe embroidery with the tote as an accent! Either way it’s such a nice statement piece that will get so much wear! Here are my choices below!
Everyone knows that April showers bring May flowers so why not take this time to update your rain wardrobe? I know I am tired of heavy Wellies that are too big and uncomfortable. So if we have to bare the wet, cold rainy season; why not do it in style?
We found some fun and stylish alternatives that are under $50
This Spring is coming faster than you know it; what better way to welcome a new season than a new handbag?! Yellow is usually reserved for Summer but this Spring it makes a debut in a variety of shades from lemon all the way to chartreuse. Yellow can go great with neutrals and add a pop of color to any outfit.
So with all that in mind, I have dedicated this get it for less to yellow handbags featuring handbags and clutches all under $40!

The bomber jacket has been in this entire year! It’s versatile, comfy and adds a layer of coolness previously reserved for the motorcycle jacket. Alas there is no way of knowing if this trend will continue (unless your like me who has plenty of bomber jackets because I use them in my punk and Japanese street style looks) so why spend a ton of money on something you may not want to keep after the trend dies. Here are our picks and all are under $50!
Our final trend is my absolute obsession and that is the quirky bag or as the Japanese call it Kawaii (which means cute) these bags add a touch of whimsy and fun to any outfit.
