I love Spring....I know, it's almost Fall

Okay, some of you may have heard of this website (I may have to un-friend you for holding out on me) but Aldo makes another brand called Spring. I discovered it today while reading Chloe's blog(she always has the cutest shoes!). I grabbed up two pairs of shoes, both for ridiculous prices. I hope they fit well as I've had some issues with Aldo shoes. For these prices, if I wear them once I've gotten my $$ worth AND the shipping is free!
Danniels $10.49 (but them here)

Piper $13.99 (buy them here)

I also picked up a really cute pair of nude, low heel peep toes from Aldo. They aren't exactly the nude shoes I was looking for but the price was right and the shoe was cute.
Kea $26.24 (but them here)

What's your favorite place to shop for shoes?

I did however, snatch up these adorable pumps from Banana Republic:
My shoes for the fall will be these great gray wool pumps and hopefully a pair of nude pumps of similar style (still looking for those...let me know if you see a great, comfy pair)

Motorcycle jackets are going to be HOT this fall. Whether you want real or faux leather, their are plenty of options and styles to find the perfect one for you. Pair your jacket with a soft, ruffle skirt, a floral flowy dress, a dark and sexy pair of skinny jeans. The options are endless. The only rule...if you go faux leather as many will since it's 1) affordable, 2) animal friendly, please make sure your leather doesn't look plastic EEK!

Banana Republic $298

Express $98

Victoria's Secret $198

Victoria's Secret $98

The Limited $129

Mindy's Pick of the Week

OMG how fabulous are these ruffles?! I spotted this fabulous find on another blog today and think I might not be able to live without it. This fall is going to be all about structure, military, soft mixed with tough, and this jacket has it all! To beat it's $39.99 at Kohls.

Purple is the New Chocolate

I am absolutely crazy about this Chocolate Cherry Heather. Here are three great pieces from Victoria's Secret to considering adding to your closet this fall. How great will these flowy tops look with you dark skinny jeans? AHHH-mazing!

I went to Street Scene this week (a great little local vintage consignment store) to see if they were interested in carrying my flower line, dog silhouettes, and dog tutu's. I had a great response from the buyers there. The requested 15-20 broaches, 10-15 headbands, 15-20 dog silhouettes in a variety of colors and dogs, and one doggie tutu to test out. I am stoked, but not sure how I am going to get this all accomplished in the next week and a half. Guess I need to stop blogging and get to painting, cutting, and sewing.
