Sept 28 Nordstrom Sale Pieces

Weeee, I heart sales!
Maggy London Scoop Neck Brocade Dress (Plus)
This is a beautiful plus-sized dress prefect for holiday parties! Originally $158, but it now for $63.
Wood Handle Straw Houndstooth Clutch
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.
 Halogen Mandarin Collar Jacket
This mandarin collar jacket is just beautiful! Originally $110, but it now for $65.

Swimwear for 2008!

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"

Delicate Brass Earrings

Delicate Brass EarringsThese earrings have a beautiful luster to them and a delicate feel that make them seem much more expensive than they really are. Buy them at Out Of Hand Boutique for $22.

Faveo Freedom Bra

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.

Cow Shoes

Cow ShoesWhy go with an animal print that everyone already has when you can go with something unique like cow print! I love the contrast of a cow and a sexy stiletto! You can also get it in dalmatian print at Endless for $80.
