The real excitement, however, is the Derek Lam optical glasses for $78. Take them to your eye doctor and get your prescription put in these, because they're cute, and you aren't going to find designer eyewear there for under $100. Purple, raspberry, and gray colored frames available.
Sorry for lack of photo evidence; working on a PC and grandma's confused.
Oh, and for my masochistic readers, they're having a Chloe sale, too. Beautiful florals, draping, colors--nothing under $200. No shoes though, so I'll sleep at night without buying something from this sale.

Loads of great items at ShopBop on sale now that I learned about from Shop It To Me. If I were in a buying mood (and looming bills have spoiled that for me somewhat), I think I'd have to get this Elizabeth & James Long Convertible Dress for $206.50. I would love to wear this all summer with a blazer thrown over and those Jeffrey Campbell lace up sandals I got.

I'm just saying. It's an incredibly well edited site, decent prices, and it may be where I found beautiful items such as these Jeffrey Campbell Asti shoes.
Of course, I couldn't help thinking of Stephanie when I saw these G-Shock Data Bank Calculator Watches.
And if these Short Arc Earrings were in stock, I offer my guarentee that they would be mine.
They have loads of great slouchy T-shirts, too, but I'm more drawn to these Free People Rugged Cut-offs--the perfect addition to my random collection of jeans shorts.
I love the color and the length...now if only the temperature would go above 40°F!

OK so I got a little raise at work and I was thinking I'd go ahead and take a look, and Anthropologie usually makes me happy but rarely surprises me. But I actually had a couple of "what the...?" reactions last night.

ShopBop.com had a couple of super cute Alexander Wang pieces, including the Thermal Shorts that were all the rage.
Alexander Wang Thermal Shorts on sale for $130.90 at ShopBop.com.
While I dream of how comfortable I know these are, I still can't justify that price. (Easier than the original $187, but still not cheap enough.)
I really like this Marc by Marc Jacobs take on the classic trench--nice collar and tiger print--but at $369.60 (on sale at Bloomingdales.com), it's still a little too rich for my blood. Especially since I'm very happy with my collection of trench coats.
Finally, there's something about these Frye Billy Pull On boots that are calling to me. Maybe it's my Appalachian upbringing. At $187 I know they're a good price--nice cowboy boots can be expensive*--I still can't do it. Maybe you can?
Frye Billy Pull On Boots $187 at Tobi.com.
I'm going to investigate this Tobi.com. I haven't been on here much, but the sale section seems good. They have a couple of pairs of Melissa shoes for under $50!
Melissa Joy+Ah Oxfords $49 at Tobi.com.

Project Runway season 5 finalist Kenley Collins is in jail right now for allegedly using her cat as a weapon in an assault on her ex-fiancé, TMZ reports. Cops arrested Kenley at her Brooklyn apartment early yesterday morning, alleging she attacked her sleeping ex-fiancé with her cat, a laptop, several apples, and water. She has been charged with six crimes, including second-degree assault, third-degree assault, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree (would that be the cat?). It's unclear when she'll get out of jail. Kenley reportedly told the ex, "You're lucky ... it could've been a lot worse." Yeah, she could have tickled him silly with all those feathers she likes to wear on her head.

Silence and Noise Shredded Leggings $38 at Urban Outfitters.
If I didn't just find the Sam Edelman's on eBay, I would probably be buying these. I'm not crazy about the top, but pair these with skinny pants--fierce.

This Acer Aspire One 8.9" mini would fit the bill nicely at $289.98 on Amazon.com. Sure, it's not designed by Vivienne Tam, but it's TINY, and I could take it EVERYWHERE. Bah.

Recently I took to my twitter page wondering if anyone would pay 5x retail for a pair of shoes that he/she was Obsessed with. I was thinking about this of course, due to the hunt for my white whale, which has left me like Ahab, drowning...in debt. I'm not complaining though, because I am a winner.
The only response I received was from a dear friend, KL Pereiera, stating she would if the shoes were Campers. I chuckled because we definitely had some nervous conversations about spending on those comfy kicks. I then though, however, that I haven't been in to Camper lately. After today's SaleMail, however, I see that I just haven't been looking very hard.
So in KL's honor, here are some awesome Campers shoes. I'm really thinking about getting the pelota sneakers with the black patent details as I had a similar pair that were pink and black, and I wore them until they literally had holes in the sole and were falling apart.
And of course, no KL-themed post would be complete without this.
