'Cause Fall is on its way...

'Tis the end of the Summer season - the Summer clothing season, anyway - and as such, I've scoured my favorite online boutiques for the best deals and a few items, including the sigh-worthy Carmen Ho peep toes toward the bottom of the scroll, that are still well out of my financial reach but are nonetheless significantly less expensive than they were a few weeks ago.

(UPDATE: Carmen Ho peep toes now marked down to $151.20 -- see below!)

If you're in the mood today to indulge in a little lunchtime credit card damage, you're in luck, because here below are some very good starting points.

And please, if you do buy the Carmen Hos, give them a nice warm home with plenty of outfit options, a monthly pedicure and a place in your shoe display free and clear of anything that either flips, flops or heaven forbid, Crocs.

I love that first black dress! Quick Jo, think of somewhere for me to wear it so I can justify the purchase.

See you in three weeks!

knew you as hannie, too said...

Those J Brand jeans are fabulous! I can't do the skinny jeans, so I'm definitely in the market for a new wide-leg pair for Fall. These just may be the ones...

if only i could afford the phillip lim dress... sigh.

You tease, putting up that adorable polka-dot brown chiffon blouse with the puff sleeves that's only available in a six.

I also love the first black dress but it would never work on me so shall resign it to "admire, but do not want".

etcetera said...

love the red joe's jeans top. but i must say i'm never a fan of lace-up ickyness (as seen in those wide leg pants). always looks trashy to me for some reason. and you, my dear, are not trashy.

congrats on 1,000, btw. i eagerly await the ASJINE soiree.

That's funny, I love those boyshorts. Normally, I would never pay $50 for a pair of knickers, but those are deadly.

Tomato, tomahto.

i like the cutaway dress but what kind of body does it take to pull that look off? i think you'd have to have some boobs, a thin waist, not too big of hips... but i'm just guessing -- it is hard to read what that texture of fabric would do once it is on the body.

i want those carmen ho's so badly! but i don't think i can justify $150 (did you know they're on sale?) since i'll be back in school next year. also the 4+ inch heels would probably be impractical for walking around nyc. oh, if only we all had tom cruise's money AND a driver!

The biggest things for the cutaway dress would be toned arms, narrow set shoulders, slender waist, and a average to long torso. It would be linebacker city on me.
