Fall in Love with Fall

Here are some fashion & beauty pics inspired by fall…..

Fur coat

I just purchased this beautiful coat from Forever21…I paid full price ($60) because I know it won’t last until a sale…it’s too pretty and they only had one left in the store in my size! Can’t wait to wear it!!

Fall scarves

These are my favorite fall scarves…the first two a purchased from Charming Charlie and the 3rd I made my self. See DIY blanket scarf post here.

Fall nails

Some of my favorite fall nail polish colors! I’ve collected these colors over the years..the brands range from Marc Jacobs to Ulta.

Fall makeup

Some makeup lip colors I’ve been loving…the especially love the Milani cosmetics metallic lipsticks.

More makeup I’ve been loving for fall

This is a turquoise handbag I purchased on sale from Charming Charlie and I added a fall colored scarf for a dressier touch.

DIY Blanket Scarf

blanket scarf DIYScarves are by far one of my favorite accessories especially in fall, but they can be pricey…some going for over $30 apiece.

I’ve been seeing really pretty pictures on Pinterest of blankets scarves but there was a certain plaid pattern I was searching. As luck with have it, on a trip to Jo-anne fabric one afternoon I saw the pattern I wanted! They had quite a selection of plaid fabrics. I love the green with red and blue.

I waited a few weeks for the plaid fabrics to be marked down 40% and then I used a 20% off your purchase coupon.

Regular price the fabric was $9.99 per yard. I purchased roughly 1 1/3 yards. So it would have cost about $13. With the 40% off I got the fabric for $5.99/yard and an additional 20% or $1.50 of so my final price was roughly $6.20 before taxes.

The 1 1/3 yards makes the fabric square in shape, so I basically just fold it up how I like and there is my blanket scarf. No sewing required.

A $6 blanket scarf!

If you personally would like to add fringe edges there is a how to tutorial here from jo-ann’s website.

ULTA SAVINGS

ULTA SAVINGS 32%

Ulta is one of my favorite places to shop. I love their mix of drugstore and high end beauty products. But I love saving money too! That’s why I create a wish list of products I need / want and wait for sales. Often they have 20% off you purchase, BOGO 50% off or you can use a $3.50 off your purchase of $15 or more. And those are good deals but those promotions don’t usually qualify on “prestige” brands at Ulta (which of course are the products I want). For a list of those brands check here

So I wait..and I wait..

At the end of October the sale I have been waiting for finally came!

20% off your entire purchase prestige brands included. YESS!! I had anticipated this sale would come some time before Sephora’s VIB sale in November but I didn’t know exactly when. Even though I didn’t know the exact date I did scope out a discounted gift card a month ago in anticipation. Thanks to that I received an additional 15% off my purchase!!

The Ulta 20% off your entire purchase was for an online purchase only and the promo code came via email. Make sure you are signed up as a Ulta rewards member and receive promotions to an email address that you check often. This sale lasted for one day only!

Total purchase: $240 before discount + 20% applied = $192, additional discounted giftcard 15% off: total paid $163 (does not include taxes). Total savings 32%

Fall Handbag Collection

fall handbags 2

I have some amazing fall colored handbags to rotate through the next couple of months!

3 fall handbags

All three of these handbags were less than $30 each, the green bag was less than $15! I purchased all three of them at various times from Charming Charlie. None of them are from this season so I doubt they’re still available, but Charming always has new handbags for every season of the year and such an awesome color selection!

If I were looking for another fall handbag I’ve already noticed a few from this season that I would love to grab.

A plaid tote would look great with my collection. Leopard is also another weakness! Or even this dark wine colored purse! Charming charlies always has something I would love in their store! If you sign up to be a rewards member then you receive promotional coupons in the mail via email that you can use for additional savings on already cheap prices!
