A Little Coco

I was happy to see that White House Black Market has taken ideas from my favorite designs to give some really affordable options for this fall. I love these designs because they mimic the classic Chanel styles without being downright knockoffs.

This bag ($85) is a nice alternative to a large shopper tote. It's a great option for hauling your files and paperwork to and fro the office. I might buy it for travelling this fall, since it would hold my Netbook and all the accessories, snacks and water for the plane, and a light sweater or wrap. The more I think about it, the more I need this! I'll probably remove the bow though.

If I were a flats kind of girl, I'd buy these in a heartbeat. WHBM's shoes are usually pretty good quality; I have a couple pairs of heels and they have held up well. They are a steal at $88, especially considering the prices J Crew and Banana Republic charge nowdays.

If you're drooling for a classic Chanel flap bag, check out this little number. I compared the structure to my Chanel and it's pretty darn close, for only $48. Carry this if you're saving your dough for the ultimate bag!

Also, once you spend $300 at WHBM (you can do this in several visits) you'll get 5% off for life. You also get that discount on sale prices and can use it with coupons, too! They also offer 2% off through Ebates, making it even easier to justify some little fun purchases!

Fall is my favorite season, and I can't wait to do my fall shopping. I definitely want some new sweaters and tall black boots. I've already bought a pair of Tory Burch Revas to wear in our "in between" season, since it doesn't cool off until October in Houston. What are you planning on buying this fall?
