Twenty fashionable gifts under $200, #11-15

By Andrea Thatcher on November 27th, 2008

20 under $200 11.jpg

You get some of your greatest shopping ideas from your friends, right? Me too! So for the next few items in our gift guide I’ve kind of copied off of my friend Jill’s Christmas list (maybe I should let her husband know!).

The Frye Harness boots, $198, aren’t going anywhere. They’ve become one of the modern classics of affordable boot styles that you know will stay en vogue for years to come. A little bit cowboy boot, a little bit motorcycle boot, this style takes cues from both of those but makes them cleaner and straighter.

Check out items one through five here, and six through 10 here, or keep reading for 12 through 15!

This year, we know everyone is all about the budget shopping. So we’re compiling four mega gift lists made up entirely of items that cost less than $200.

Find the perfect Thanksgiving-at-the-boyfriend’s outfit at Anthropologie

By Andrea Thatcher on November 9th, 2007

Anthropologie%20outfits1.jpgWith the holidays coming up, there are a lot of family gatherings that require just the right outfit–sophisticated, slightly conservative, but still fashionably you. I remember my first Thanksgiving with my boyfriend’s family and how nervous I was about spending a major holiday with his entire family and, of course, the big question that lurked in my mind: What to wear?? But don’t worry, Anthropologie has just the right collection of sweater and pant couture (a dress is too much and jeans are too casual) to ease your fashion anxiety. I really like this Mountain Air Wrap with tie on the side for $138. It’s stylish, but not flashy, and can be dressy, but the hoodie adds a slight casualness to make you look like the perfect girl to take home to Mom and Dad. Anthropologie’s trouser pants are also very chic and classy. And this sweater would go great with the Idra Brushed Twill Trousers for $118. Another more conservative, but stylish top is the Innovation Mockneck for $98 in Clover and Paprika. The perfect pants to complete the look are these Charcoal wide-leg Top Hat Trousers by Taikonhu for $148. For more outfit picks, continue to the jump.

A casual winter look from Bluefly’s Cold Weather Shop

By Andrea Thatcher on October 25th, 2007


We decided to raid Bluefly’s Cold Weather Shop for some discount winter fashions to create a casual look for keeping warm. We chose a muted, but still colorful outfit with blues and grays and a pop of red. The coat is Kenneth Cole Reaction, $168, and we like the seaming at the waist of the wool spread collar topper. Underneath that you can wear this $78 Design History sweater. In a silk-cashmere knit, this crossover V-neck drapes elegantly down from a pleated nape. The rosette and leaf appliques on the $37 Portolano gloves provide interest on the muted loden. You can keep this embroidered teal Elizabeth Gillett scarf, $64, on to prevent a chill in that V-neck once indoors. On top? A red cashmere Portolano beret for $27.

Work wardrobe staples on sale at the Gap

By Andrea Thatcher on October 22nd, 2007


It can be really hard to scrounge together an appropriate work wardrobe when you get your first job, your first office job, sell out to the corporate machine, or score a new, higher-level position. And then once you do you gain weight or lose 10 pounds or spill something on your best suit. Your basic pencil skirt, blazer, that go-to sweater … these are items that constantly need to be replaced because you wear them so often. That’s what the Gap is for, and especially what Gap sales are for. We’ve chosen some workwear staples you should have in your wardrobe that can be pieced together or worn with more stylish, unique pieces in your own closet to mix and match into a more individual ensemble: a classic three-button blazer with modern detailing, a v-neck sweater, black pencil skirt, and wool coat. Click through for more details.

J.Crew regal cashmere sweater for keeping toasty

By Andrea Thatcher on October 10th, 2007

Finally! The weather seems to be changing and I can wear my cute new J.Crew sweaters. I’ve always been partial to happy colors, and this bright poppy sweater is no exception. J.Crew’s cashmere regal lion critter tee is lightweight Italian crewneck cashmere with a 12-gauge knit, and comes to hip length. Cuffs and hem have a rolled edge. And what’s more, it looks and feels divine! At $160.00 it’s a steal, and perfect for fall!
