Stack 'em Up!

Yippee! Heels are stacked this spring and summer. And, I don't know about you, but I'll gladly trade my stilettos for a pair of right-on-trend, stacked heel sandals. Their chunky heels are sturdy and super chic. I found a couple pairs recently, each under $25, in Burlington Coat Factory. There's no need to break the bank to embrace this trend.

Easter Fashion on a Budget

Easter's coming, so it's time to pull out our Easter Sunday best. Nothing says Easter style like a print dress in spring's favorite hues. This geo flag print dress by Kate Spade Saturday is currently 60% off in-stores! If you have a Kate Spade Saturday nearby, stop by to shop the sales before the store closes for good. You wouldn't believe where I found the Arturo Chiang sandals? In Burlington Coat Factory. And, the sandals, right on trend with the stacked heel, were under $25.

The Marc by Marc Jacobs "Ligero" tote, which retails for $448, is another designer bag that'll be available at this year's Old Bags fundraiser on April 28. Bid on this bag, win it for a fraction of its value, and help the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition find forever homes for children in foster care.

Bargain Shopping for a Cause, Part 3

Today's all black look was inspired by the Kate Spade Cobble Hill Straw Mini Minka bag that I'm carrying. This bag, which usually retails for $278, is another one of the designer bags that'll be available at this year's Old Bags, a silent auction hosted by the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition to raise funds to aid in finding forever homes for children in foster care. Be sure to check out a sample of the other available bags by visiting the Old Bags Pinterest board.

This bag is a sure bet for spring style. The combination of textured straw and smooth leather exudes warm-weather luxe. The bag also has an adjustable and detachable cross-body strap. When you open the bag, be prepared to be wowed by its book stripe print lining. Did I forget to mention that the bag is brand new?

Bargain Shopping for a Cause, Part 2

On Monday, I launched my first post, Bargain Shopping for a Cause, in collaboration with the Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. The Coalition is hosting its annual fundraiser, Old Bags, a designer handbag auction, on April 28 at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac Hotel. This event raises money to support the organization's important work with children in foster care.

In today's post, I'm excited to share another fabulous bag that'll be available at the auction. It's a Kate Spade Post Street Little Nadine handbag, new with tags. This bag has a retail value of $458 and can be yours for much less. This polished crossbody carryall has been featured in Vogue magazine and sold out instantly in this red and black color.
