Weeee, I heart sales!
This is a beautiful plus-sized dress prefect for holiday parties! Originally $158, but it now for $63.
Houndstooth is always hot for Fall and this day clutch is a perfect example of how to update your wardrobe. Originally $188, but it for $59.
This mandarin collar jacket is just beautiful! Originally $110, but it now for $65.
Victoria's Secret has a preview of swimwear for 2008! I like this apron top tankini's batik pattern. I makes me think of steamy Summer, which is soon going to be a distant memory. Buy it for $48 and $28 for the top and bottom. And if you spend more than $100 at the site (US only), you can get free shipping with the code "VSFall"
This is a strapless, backless bra (really just two cups) that is made specifically for large chested women. I dunno about you, but it looks like some painful S&M top to me! You can buy the Faveo Freedom Bra at OK Lingerie for about $70. If you do buy it, please email me and let me know how it is! Their website is http://www.faveo.co.uk/ but it's currently down.

Queen Bee would like to offer 10% off ALL basics. Sale ends 10/4. To redeem, simply type "email927" in the discount code at checkout.
I'm leaving to go to a DC Fashion Week show, everyone should go and support DC fashion!!!
T-Mobile and a large bunch of designers (Tommy Hilfiger, Cynthia Rowley, DVF, Philip Lim and more!) have teamed up to redesign a Sidekick mobile. The money from the sales will go to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer and the phones are unique one offs.
Classic enough to be matched with almost anything but funky and stylish enough to avoid being boring, this sweater is a perfect buy for Fall! It's got a slim shape, so it won't add bulk while keeping you warm, and it's in the season's big color: gray. Buy it at JB and Me for $194.
