Budget, Bold and Ballin Buys

Sadly my favorite season is ending, but what keeps me excited for Fall is the fashion! I have many things I am eyeing up to buy, but my first purchase will most likely be a motorcycle jacket. I love, love, love, a great leather jacket. It is something that can turn jeans and a t-shirt into a chic little number. I especially love it thrown on top of a dress because it gives an otherwise totally feminine look a bit of an edge. 
Here are a few additional wallet friendly choices for a black leather jacket: Forever 21/Nordstrom/Nasty Gal

It's looking like colorful and bold eyes are going to be something you'll see this Fall in the world of makeup.  Having a great eyeshadow palette is the perfect start in being prepared for any creative eye look you may fancy this season.   These are all great choices depending on what specific products you need.  Sephora offers great value while incorporating eyeshadows, lipgloss and eye pencils to their palette, while Smashbox offers eyeshadow plus blusher and cream eyeliner.  The MAC palette is somewhat of an investment.  This is perfect for someone who loves eye makeup and likes to try new looks.  This palette is totally customized to your very own color preferences (this specific palette was customized by me.) While this palette only offers eye shadow, it may be worth the pretty penny since you can hand pick the colors.  

Booties, booties, booties how I love the. I am obsessed with booties of all colors, heel heights and styles.  Here are a few examples of some of my favorite basic black booties.  I have been stalking the Coclico pair and have already tried them on in my favorite local boutique, Peper & Parlor.  I can honestly say they are super comfy and that this brand is worth the extra $$$ for great quality alone.  I haven't made the purchase as of yet but I will probably bite the bullet quite soon.  If you have reservations about spending too much on booties, the Michael Antonio pair is extremely reasonable and for a bit more the MK pair is so pretty with the gold zipper detail.

Which products would you choose?
