Face Candy Fall Fashion 2008


It's no secret that I love a bargain. It's unfortunate that I have such high-end taste. No, that just means it makes the hunt for a good deal more fun. I recently invested in a pair of Gucci Oversized Sunglasses from Overstock.com. I actually think that Overstock is an awesome place to get sunglasses, they have tons of designer brands for much less. I believe mine were around $300 and I got them for $150. My husband likes to make fun of me and call me a bug when I wear them, but I don't care. I won't be getting any crows feet!

Besides purses, sunglasses and makeup, one of my favorite obsessions is SHOES! This month I needed a lot of things, so spending over $50/pair was out of the question. I usually like to go to TJ Maxx or Marshalls, but sometimes finding size 5 or 5 1/2 is really difficult. It's hit or miss. So after I hit up Nordstrom's Rack (unsuccessfully), I stopped at Payless, where I took advantage of their BOGO offer. I picked up the Tripp Tailored Boot ($37.99) for work and the Airwalk Sand Pine Boots ($24.99) for snowy weather.

I ALSO needed a new winter coat. Somehow my old one from J. Crew disappeared mysteriously. I hit up Victoria's Secret online for this Double-Breasted Peacoat ($109.) I chose Camel, the same color as the model is wearing. The sleeves are a little too long, so I have to make an appointment with my tailor to have them shortened. I LOVE my tailor. I'd walk around looking like a little girl in women's clothes if it wasn't for him. Altering is totally worth it, it makes you look "finished." The coat is soft and warm, my only complaint is the fake pockets. I see no point in fake pockets. They just don't make any sense to me. I'm constantly reaching in there- only to find nothing.
