I was reading a fashion article recently and they had a poll on what trends you wanted to keep for 2008. I was shocked to see that leggings and volume were on the keep list by a LOT, but I can at least see the benefit to leggings. So here is a pair on super sale, originally $65 at Intermix but marked down to just $19.

Sure it's bloody cold out right now, but just around the corner is Spring! Are you ready with cute new clothes? Get prepared with this great pencil skirt in bright yellow - and wear it now with some black tights and boots. Buy at Saks for $240.
I'm always looking for tops basic enough to throw on in rushed mornings, but with interesting details that make it look like I put in more effort than I really did. This is a great example, a basic black top with neat kimono sleeves and a belt. Plus, it's only $40 at Bluefly, hooray!

I love the Nepalese tiger on this tee! And it's extra long so if you're short like me you could probably pair this with leggings or maybe even tights to wear as a dress! Best of all it was originally $284 but is now marked down to $78 at DJ Premium. And possibly get another 25% off if you enter the code "MICDU" at the checkout.
these pants have a very subtle print that make them interesting and actually wearable! The only problem is that they're cropped but you can't see how long they are because the model is wearing boots. Somewhere between the knee and ankle. Buy at Yoox for the sale price of $112.
I really wanted a faux fur jacket to wear for New Years, but I realize there's not really much time left for delivery. She here's one that you may possibly find in store too! Buy at Ann Taylor Loft for the sale price of $99... buy it soon and you'll get an extra 30% off taken at checkout (it ends up being $70)!
There are a zillion post-Christmas sales going on right now, so time to stock up on cute clothes! I like the dolman sleeves on this sweater, and you can buy it in petite or tall as well. Find in pink or cream at Banana Republic for $99.

I LOVE pink and purple together and the sailboat print is so abstract that even when nautical is out you can wear this! Buy it at ShopBop for $228. Sorry if my posting is sporadic from now until after Christmas, everyone have a lovely holiday!

I know these have been out for awhile overseas, but I had no idea you could buy them online! I don't care if they're old news, they're still the new hotness for me! Buy then at House of Holland's site for £35 to £40 or about $71 to $81.
Now that it's cold out, I seriously wear my fleece pants every day to work. So I highly recommend on buying a pair, they provide just that extra tidbit of warmth that I so desperately crave. Get these on sale at Browns for £70 or about $141.

Screw Uggs, Khombus, Mukluks, Snowjoggers, Mannimals, etc! I'm going to stay with the original Winter shoe - the Moon Boot. It's surprisingly hard to find lots of colors options online at one store but if you go to Online Shoes you can buy in black, white, pink, purple, blue and green for $130.
This is a beautiful piece! I love the ruffle edging on the pockets and how it continues along the back for a sassy exit. Of course anything this cool is bloody expensive, even on sale! Originally $728 at My Wardrobe, it now costs $510.
Tux -inspired women's wear is currently big, but this jacket will never go out of style! The cut is perfect for emphasizing a tiny waist and would be great over a holiday frock. Buy at La Garçonne for the sale price of $234.
So far I think this is one of the best convertible bras I've found out there. And since racerbacks are in style this Spring, it's a good idea to be prepared! In fact, I think a convertible bra is something everyone should own. You can buy this at Victoria's Secret for about $50 (larger sizes cost more).

Dear lord, buy this before it's sold out, quick! It's actually available on the Chanel site as I write this but I don't expect that to last much longer. I know it's already sold out on Neiman Marcus and it's showing up on eBay. I'll look for something similar by OPI and let you know what I find.
Now I'm off to yet another holiday party event, gah.
UPDATE: So far the closest match is OPI's Russian Navy, which you can buy at Amazon for $6.

I recently saw a fashionable coworker sporting a bomber jacket and I was like, why aren't these currently in style??? So I'm going to take a leap and guess they will be soon, be prepared with this stylish one by Converse by John Varvatos. Buy for $195 at 80s Purple and get free shipping to boot!
This is another great last minute present, especially for a jewelry lover! Only $20 at Urban Outfitters, this necklace display is beautiful and great for showing off her favorite piece instead of hiding it in a jewelry box.

Are jazz shoes coming into style? British fashion has gone a little kooky lately, don't you think? But if you're into this trend, you might as well get these, which come with removable spats as well! Buy in black or white at Asos for £150 or about $305.
