Next on my fall/winter wardrobe list is a pair of boots, even though I won't be able to wear them until maybe January. I'm starting to see a lot of flat styles in the stores now. I still love my heels, lol. Here are a few styles that I found for under $50.

Skinnies can take a back seat for now. Give yourself room to move with a nice pair of wide leg trousers. Here are a few styles that I've found for less than $30.
I've started my fall shopping a little early. The first thing I said I was going to get was a pair of plaid shoes. I saw this pair at Tar-jay, and I just had to have them. The only thing that sucks about these flats is that you have to go up 1/2 a size, but other than that, they're fine. I want this tote. That may be the next thing on my list, lol.

I don't think I could wear all this black in this summer heat, but whatever works for Halle, works for me. I think this is a cute simple look for her, and here's my frugal version of her outfit.
Grand total for this look= $112.80

FORUM TOPIC(S) OF THE DAY: What's your wardrobe staple?
So, we drove over to Orlando this Friday to see comedienne, Sheryl Underwood, at the Orlando Improv. The first thing we did when we got into town was go shopping. We went into a Steve and Barry's and I ran right over to the Bitten stuff because I've been wanting to check it out for a while (we don't have a Steve and Barry's here in town). The stuff was okay. I tried on a few things, but they didn't fit me right. I ended up getting two pairs of thong sandals. As we were leaving, I noticed that the salesperson was putting away a new stock of white sailor pants. I wanted to try those on, but we had to leave.
thong sandals $7.98 each
I see that there are some Bitten items being sold on Ebay. If you don't have a Steve and Barry's in your town, then this might be the way to go, but some of the prices are ridiculous. The Bitten line is under $20, but I see some of the prices are well into the $30-$40 range.
I also bought these shoes from Wally World for $7. They look much cuter on.
Add a splash of this beautiful jewel tone to your basic blacks and grays for fall. Here are a few pieces I've found for under $30.
