One. Looking for a small work bag or a stylish crossbody for the weekend?  This is the bag before you.  It mixes animal prints and neutrals to create a bag that is anything but ordinary.

Looking for stylish crossbody bags that don’t cost an arm and a leg?  I found this red Liz Claiborne bag with clean lines and nice details.  I also like the look of this Rachel Roy crossbody, it’s modern, yet classic.

Two.  I’ve been admiring this dress for awhile, but I can’t seem to pull the trigger on it.  I love the tonal details and the fact that it has sleeves.  I’m a sucker for sleeves.  In the under-$50 category, I found this stylish long sleeve dress from BB Dakota.  For plus-size readers, I found this black and grey dress that would be a great look for dinner dates or holiday parties.

Three.  As I mentioned earlier today, Shopbop is having a friends and family,  I’m digging this Minkoff pendant necklace, especially at 25-percent-off.  Still too rich for you blood?  Try this $10 Modcloth necklace.

Four. I absolutely adore this blouse.  Not feeling it from the picture above?  Look at it on the model.  I had an AllSaints gift card, so I’ll let you know how it is when it gets here.  I’m hoping for magic.

Five.  The asymmetric skirt has been popping up all over blogs and magazines lately.  This Tibi skirt is a lovely specimen, but a bit pricey, no?  Trouve has a black skirt in a nearly identical cut for under-$100.

Six. First, it was skinny rings.  Now, my heart has been stolen by skinny bangles.  This chevron cuff is right up my alley, and I wouldn’t say no to this wave-shaped Nashelle bangle for $30.

Seven. I have too many cards. Not credit cards, rewards and membership cards.  A card sleeve like this chic one from Everlane is perfect for carrying them around without overfilling my wallet.

Eight.  I’ve really come to appreciate shirttail hems on sweaters.  Just a little extra material in the back can make a big difference.  This inexpensive sweater from Target is a versatile piece in a neutral color combination.  I also like this Asos sweater with a gray and red color block.

Nine.  Metal accents on shoes are all the rage this fall.  These Ann Taylor boots have a chic bar on the heel.  I also like the metal trim on these Dolce Vita suede pumps.

    Hi there – FYI that Chico’s (I know, right?!) sells an almost-identical version of the All-Saints blouse. I got it in the smallest size (their sizes are generally for older women) and it’s gorgeous!
