Lending her expertise to Silhouettes Style, Francie has selected her five favorite pieces your wardrobe needs for Fall.

Roll Sleeve Cardigan - $54 "I love this cotton sweater, it's easy to throw on with jeans. I love it in black with a white tee."

Wide Leg Jean - $39 "The wide leg is always a flattering look, the proportion balances most body types."

Leather Weekender - $159 "The leather bag is perfect for a weekend get-away, it's classic without the look of basic tote or duffel."

Status Print Big Shirt - $49 "The equestrian look is a great for fall. I love this shirt with paired with denim, for weekend, and brown flannel pants for business."

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!
