Weekly Bargain: Embellished Tunic

By Sarah Conley · August 12, 2009 · 0 Comments ·

As the calendar begins to slide into Fall, we're all tempted by the thought of new clothes - but not so fast! Summer's sales are so easy on the wallet, what's a gal to do? Introducing the Weekly Bargain, a new feature highlighting a steal we're sure you can't resist.


This week we're loving the Embellished Print Tunic.  The beaded neckline adds just the right amount of embellishment to take the basic tunic shape to the next level and the print's Autumnal colors will help you seamlessly find a place for it within your early Fall wardrobe.  Originally $49.00, snag it now for $29 and save yourself $20 off the original price.  We would take the $20 savings and buy more shoes....After all, a gal can never have enough shoes.

Best Bets: Fall Jackets

By Sarah Conley · August 10, 2009 · 0 Comments ·

Jackets are an essential piece for early Fall and one of the easiest pieces to help your wardrobe transition into Winter. Here are our picks to help give you a jump start before the chill sets in.

Gillian Grey Ponte Di Roma Riding Jacket - $99 - This jacket takes the equestrian look one step further, with a relaxed fabric that makes looking chic easy. Fully lined, you might think this jacket costs twice as much as you actually paid for it.

Gillian Grey 2-Way Stretch Ruffle Collar Blazer - $84 - Just when you thought the classic blazer was boring, this jacket brings femininity back into the workplace. Plus, the stretch fabric hugs your curves in all the right places.

Open Front Jacket - $69 - Menswear takes on a whole new meaning when paired with a free-flowing ruffled edge. The abstract shape also helps to balance wider hips for a more proportioned silhouette.

Gillian Grey Open Front Duster - $79 - This jacket can complement nearly every outfit, from a daytime classic to evening cocktails. To take classics to the next level, opt for Eggplant instead of Taupe.

What is your favorite fall jacket? How do you style it? Tell us in the comments!

Summer may be half over but the truth is, it's always the season for great swimwear. Here are our picks for the best swimsuits for this season and beyond!

Animal Print Bandeau Suit - $89 - Who can say no to an ombre leopard print? This flattering halter bandeau is great for smaller busts, plus the added slimming illusion provided by the ombre fade makes this suit a poolside classic.

Jewelry Detail Suit - $49 - Add a little glamour to your poolside ensemble with this suit's centered jeweled detailing. The gathered bustline makes this suit ultra flattering for those with a larger bust.

Stone Surplice Suit - $79 - Glimmering metallic stones add flair while the ruched crossbody detail visibly whittles the waist. A win all around!

Multi-Dot Triple-Tiered Tank - $79 - Who doesn't love a ruffle? The triple layers of ruffles are great for balancing wider hips and for enhancing a smaller bustline - not to mention, the polka dot print adds an extra dose of fun in the sun.
