Perfume or cologne is a great accessory for any outfit! Now that the weather is cooling off I like to wear perfume more regularly... these are some I have loved in the past. Each scent reminds me of certain times and places in my life. Kate Spade's Twirl I am enjoying right now - it's super sweet, but calms down once it's on my skin. What are some of your favorite colognes or perfumes?


Last week we discussed fur vests, and if we would be comfortable wearing one. This week, I'm going the safer route and picking out some good ol' fashioned sweater vests! But, just to be edgy, I've picked one with a fur trim! Ha!


I love belts. Skinny belts, wide belts, brown belts, sparkly belts any type of belt I probably love. Here are some ones that I would wear in a heartbeat!

top 15 under $100 - week 8!


How are we all feeling about fur vests? I have mixed feelings. I like the way they look on the models in magazines, but I have a feeling I would be self-conscious wearing one. If I find one at the right price, I might be willing to give it a go. All of these below are (of course) under $100, and the black one on top is only $25! That might be the one to experiment with!


I have a real weakness for boots. Particularly riding and cowboy boots, here are some pairs that are pretty dreamy for less than $100!


Boots and fur vests and... turtleneck sweaters! That can only mean one thing... fall is certainly here! I just love a cozy turtleneck sweater for a cool day. Here's some great options to keep you warm this fall!

Diane Kruger look for less < $120

I love the idea of this simple outfit formula for a night out on the town! It's so easy yet so CHIC!
