Charlotte Russe or L.A.M.B.?

So not only is my obsession with shoes becoming more apparent to me but also finding look-a-likes for waaaay cheaper than my favorite designers. Charlotte Russe is having a huge sale right now so I went in there the other day and find these designer look-a-likes! Can you figure out which is the $356 pair (on sale) and which is the under $30?! Probably, but still, a girl has to pay rent!

AO3 Designs

I'm new to etsy and was thoroughly impressed after looking over a few sites and finding AO3 Designs. Angela makes originals handbags, purses, and clutches and you can even customize your own. She also specializes in bridal clutches if you're looking for a unique bridesmaid gift. I own an Alexis clutch and have gotten so many compliments but she also has many other styles that I love. Check out her etsy shop or website!!

Cardboard Robot

When first visiting this site I thought that the clothing wouldn't be my style and my mom was a little freaked out when I sported a "Bloodmania" shirt, but I absolutely love the clothing they have. When receiving the shirts, I actually checked what fabric they were made out of because they felt so soft and high-quality! (100% cotton!)

Usually smalls are too tight on me and mediums are too big, but these shirts felt like they were made for me and fit perfectly. My favorite was this shirt:Cardboard Robot is a group of self-acclaimed misfits, dorks, geeks, and rejects. They're a unique brand that also makes recyclable furniture, short art films, and limited edition posters. They do all this while addressing important issues like poverty-stricken neighborhoods and corporate takeovers.

Jimmy Choo = Affordable?!

Once again, another shoe post.. and I may be behind on the times since this was announced in the summer but I just heard of it and am ECSTATIC. On November 14th, less than 2 months away, Jimmy Choo will be launching a collection of shoes and bags to about 250 H&M stores worldwide. I will be there right when the store opens its doors!! I've also heard there will be a clothing line to go with the accessories but I'm not sure about that launch date. And if you're worried about your guys' look, there will be shoes and accessories for them as well!! Here are some pictures of the collection:

Doie Designs

I've already mentioned Doie Designs before and I just can't say enough good things about this company and the designer Sara. I just got my hands on the Melrose Dress from the Los Angeles collection and I love it! Not only do I feel like the dress was made just for me but you can tell it's of high quality and the fact that it's made of organic materials gives it even more points. I have it in black and now that it's getting colder I plan on wearing it with leggings or some thick tights. Did I mention this is half-off as well?! Go to her site now!!

Got a $20? - Go Jane

So sorry I haven't been posting, I've been extremely busy lately, but expect lots of reviews soon!!

Gojane.com is one of my favorite places to find bargains on the cutest things, especially SHOES!! They have been introducing a lot of new things basically everyday so make sure to check the site often. It was really hard for me to do this post and pick only a few things and also to not spend my paycheck, but here's some of my favorite things under $20 from the site.

First up, slouchy suede boots. Boots are expensive and I have the hardest time not blowing my money on them but Go Jane always have the cheapest AND cutest boots. These bad babies are only $15.99 and come in 10 colors!!

Zippers are hot this fall, as are headbands - so why not combine the two?! This headband is only... $1.60!!!! What a steal!! (Also in multiple colors)

Have you ever tried to buy cowboy boots? They are crazy expensive! Luckily, gojane.com has several options but this pair was my favorite AND under $20!! I can't wait to pair these with a dress and look like Taylor Swift! :)

Ok so maybe it's getting a little chilly out but I had to share this steal -this button trim dress is only $9!!! Slip a little sweater over it and you're set! Or save it for spring break, which I'm already counting down for!!

I told you in the beginning of this that I loved Go Jane for their shoes.. so that's my explanation for ANOTHER pair of shoes being on this list.. and yea, it's another pair of boots.. these look super warm and comfy! Not in an area where you need to keep your feet warm? Gojane.com is having a sandal sale and they have hands-down the best selection of pretty and affordable sandals.

Jillie Willie

When first going on the Jillie Willie website, I wasn't looking for aprons but had seen an ad for her scarfs to wear in your hair. As I continued to browse the site, I was very impressed by the number of products offered and the cute styles featured. Then I contacted her and was even more impressed!

Jill Grover has amazing designs and a wonderful personality to boot and I fully recommend visiting the site. I now own her apron style, Baby Doll, which is a sheer floral fabric with pink ties. I've never been much of a cook, but after receiving this I got down to business! It even has a cell phone holder to keep you in touch with the world while cooking. Also check out this mop slippers.. clean your floor while just walking around!

Look for less!

Check out this pretty and sophisticated dress from revolveclothing.com that can be worn for all sorts of occasions.. the only problem? It's $325. If you have that kind of money to spend, go for it, I love this dress.. but check out a much cheaper version from Lulu's for all you broke college students like me! Only $33!!!

Can you even tell which is the more expensive one? (Hint: The one on the top!)

Yours Truly Brand

I came across Yours Truly Brand the other day and fell in love with their shirts. They have tees, tanks, tops and sweatshirts for all budgets and they only have a limited amount of each piece so you won't be seeing other people in the same clothes! The best part? They're offering 15% off with the code: Twisted. Here's some of my favorites:

Ruffles and Fringe!

I'm sure you already have something in your closet from summer, since this was a very popular look, but it seems the trend has continued... ruffles are still in for fall. Get this pretty look without spending hundreds... but still look like you did!

Booties are still hot and definitely good for fall and winter. Get them in one color or a couple! ($89 at piperlime.gap.com)

These are a steal for only $50 and also come in a few different colors.

I'm honestly about to order these right now I love them so much. Seriously, right now go to piperlime.gap.com!!! They have so many cute ruffly shoes!

Not a fan of heels? Try these flats with a ruffle!

Fashion Week - Spring 2010 Preview

Ok so I'm not in New York but I've been looking at the new Spring 2010 collections online and I'm excited for April already!!

Derek Lam: He had a lot of fun, bold colors and also lots of florals which I LOVE!

Lela Rose: She had a lot of dresses, which are my favorite for spring and summer and they were all in pretty "beachy colors" like coral, sea-green, and teal.

Vivienne Tam: An array of neutrals AND bold colors, they seemed to be very bohemian and hippie-ish.. but still very feminine. I wasn't a huge fan of all the butterfly prints though.

These weren't my favorites, but just some that caught my eye... Who were your favorite designers?
