Vince Camuto Celeste Multidirectional Stripe TopSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Everyone and their mother will tell you: you must get a striped t-shirt.  It’s a classic! It’s so versatile! It’s French!  Well: I’m not actually a fan of the striped T-shirt, at least for my own busty self.  That is, until I saw this long-sleeved tee, which is actually making me reconsider my stance against striped T-shirts.  It’s part of the great clearance sale going on at Nordstrom — it was $69, but is now marked to $41; it’s available in both regular and petite sizes. Vince Camuto ‘Celeste’ Multidirectional Stripe Top 

Happy Labor Day, ladies! Check out our sales posting (we’ll try to keep it updated over the weekend), and may everyone enjoy a long weekend.

Urban Decay Super Saturated High Gloss Lip ColorSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I have thus far bypassed the “super bright saturated color” lip trend of this summer, mostly because I’ve been too lazy to go to a Sephora and try stuff on, but the prices are so good at the Sephora sale that just started that I may just indulge online.  This Urban Decay gloss stick is normally $20, but is $10 during the sale, and there are lots of great, super saturated colors to choose from.  (The rest of the sale is pretty great also: I’m eyeing this CC concealer and this anti-aging sunscreen stick. Prices are up to 75% off, and the sale just started.

Zappos has this gorgeous heel in six colors, and it’s hard to choose which to drool over more.  For me it’s gotta be the blue, but it’s a really close call with the purple or the taupe.  They’re $129, available in sizes 5.5-10.   (Note that Nordstrom only has it in four colors, but is worth checking for the 96 (!) positive reviews.)  Steve Madden Fringly

Tory Burch SunglassesSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I’m not usually one for fancy sunglasses, but: WOW. Love these, in large part because of the interesting purple/blue glass, which looks almost ombre. Plus, let’s face it, you can never go wrong with large dark sunglasses. These are $175 at Nordstrom. Tory Burch 55mm Round Sunglasses

Fossil Monica Turnlock Crossbody | CorporetteSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

Crossbodies are big business right now, and some of my favorites are the ones that are really just a wallet on a chain. There are many high-end versions of this, but this $88 Fossil version looks great for a good quality, yet affordable, leather. It’s available in malachite (pictured), black, and beige.

Psst: ooh, it looks like Last Call still has a number of crossbody bags available from one of my favorite bag brands, Botkier, marked to around the same price — love it.

Update: Zappos has sold out of the malachite, but Amazon has it in stock.

I’ve seen this blouse on a zillion bloggers, so I broke down and bought it — quality is about what you’d expect for a $27 blouse, but I like it. It’s big and drapey, but fluid so it feels more flattering. I plan to wear it with leggings and skinny jeans on the weekend. It’s available in a ton of colors and prints, sizes XS-XL, for $27 (it’ll go back up to $42 after this weekend!). (I’m also keeping this top in the dark green — so so pretty! — but the regular, at least on my 5’4″ frame, is super, super long, so it’s also a weekend top.) Lush ‘Perfect’ Roll Tab Sleeve Tunic
