The summer time is over. That means it's time to trade the two piece and the speedo, for some lace and collared shirts. Those are just two of the must-haves for the Fall 2012 season. For the next few weeks, I will show you how to keep up with "Joneses".  And you won't have to break that piggy bank. 

We all love to shop, but in this economy some of us cannot afford to go broke. Whenever I have extra money, one of my favorite places to shop is at bebe. This week I recieved my catalog for the 2012 fall season. They had great piece, but super expensive. So, I went on another mission to find Affordable fall fashion that we all can enjoy. First, let's start with blazers, blouses, jackets and tops.
Look 1- Leopards, Cheetahs and Tigers. Oh My!! Animal prints are in for the fall. For this look paired a Leopard cardigan with a red belt(for a splash of color) and black shirt that has a sash tie. I purchased the cardigan and the belt from Love Culture, both for $11.90. A similar blouse can also be purchased at Love Culture, for $17.95
Look 2- Smooth as Velvet, shinny as Silk and classy as Lace. No, not Lace Fronts ladies. I'm talking about lace shirts, because they are the rave for the fall. Lace can easily take you from day to night. For this look I paired a black lace shirt, a pencil skirt, long earrings and a clutch. I purcashed the Lace shirt at Love Culture, for $7.90. Online you can buy it for, $3.99.

Look 3- Back in August in did a blog on Colored Block shoes. I love Color Block clothing because you have more than one color to work with. This look is paired with a colored blocked, shirt(coral and royal blue and a royal blue blazer. That will take you from the front desk, to the night club. I found two color block shirts for under $20. Love Culture, for $16.90 and  Forever 21, for $19.80. The blazer can be purcased from, Forever 21, for $32.80 and Love Culture, for $22.90.

Look 4- This look is also a Color Block shirt, but in the high low style. I purchased this for Nordstrom Rack, for $16.99. I found similar styles(under $20) at, Love Culture, for $19.90 and Forever 21, for $17.80.
Look 5- For my final look, the Collared Blouse or button up. Button ups are usually worn by men,with a suit and tie. Fast forwarding to 2012, they are now worn by many women. Ditching the suit and tie. I paired this look with a pencil skirt and a clutch bag or shoulder bag. I purchased this blouse from bebe, on sale for $34. I found similar looks at Love Culture, for $19.90 and Forever 21, for $17.80.
