Fall Colors

Feeling inspired by some of the fall foliage. I thought the yellow and burnt orange trees were especially beautiful.

40 under $40: Day 21: Pave Ring

Posted in Jewelry with tags , , on October 28, 2009 by BEA'sBrideGuide

I rarely ever shop at Talbots or Chico’s but I’m always reminded my magazines that both stores have great finds.  I love this pave ring! It is a great mix of gold and gunmetal gray so it will go with everything and it is a steal at $39.00!

40 under $40: Day 20: Leopard Clutch

Leopard print is one of my favorite trends for this season (although I’m warming up to zebra as well). A leopard clutch is the perfect way to follow the trend if you aren’t ready for a full on leopard print dress. This New York & Company clutch reminds me of the new Jimmy Choo for H&M leopard clutch except you don’t have to wait to have it!

New York and Company Leopard Clutch: $26.95

A few days ago I posted about Jeffrey Campbell, a great shoe brand a friend had suggested. Today I found something that may be even better than the ruffled Jeffrey Campbell flat, a ruffled flat for $35 on Piperlime!

40 under $40: Day 18: Infinity Scarf

Try as I might I can’t will winter to take this year off.  I’ve managed to avoid putting a coat on but I’ve also started sprinting to my car to avoid freezing. I’m giving in and admitting defeat and purchasing an infinity scarf.

40 under $40: Day 17: Fringe

Posted in Jewelry with tags , , on October 24, 2009 by BEA'sBrideGuide

Were you as excited as I was to receive your new JCrew catalog? I fell in love with the jewelry immediately and at just around $100 – amazing. And then I realized they had layered four or five necklaces, all of which were over $100.  No thanks JCrew, if I want to spend $600 jewelry there are going to be some precious stones involved.

However, I loved the fringe necklace they used to layer.  Here is a less expensive alternative from Gap:

My favorite 40 under $40 post yet! I love Swiss Dot Tights.  I have been wearing them almost daily since the end of September (let me tell you they look amazing with wellies! HA!).  My pair is from Nordstrom but American Eagle has a similar and wonderfully inexpensive pair as well.
