gap maternity jeans

We've had a request for more maternity, and since I am currently in the market for maternity clothes, here are two outfits from Gap to start off with...
Gap maternity, jeans, $68, cami, $28, cardigan, $60.
Gap maternity, three quarter sleeve crewneck, $38, tank, $16.50, wide leg jeans, $68, scarf, $20.

Project Couture Vintage

Kelly has another great tip for everyone: Project Couture Vintage. The clothes are really different and affordable. The styles actually remind me of the kinds of things I saw all those hip ladies in Tokyo wearing. Thanks Kelly!

ELIZA magazine

"Eliza Magazine is created for women who want to be stylish, sexy, and engaged in the world while retaining high standards in dress, entertainment, and lifestyle. Eliza strives to bring you the best of fashion without any of the trash."

I recieved my copy of the Spring issue a couple weeks ago, (after ordering it in April, my only complaint)and I give it a thumbs up. Beautifully photographed fashion editorials, professionally presented graphics, well-written articles, covering a range of topics. At four quarterly issues for $16, I encourage modest and modern women to support Eliza magazine!

sensible strappy heels

Darcey said, "I want a pair of somewhat strappy, yet comfortable, sandals - with an ankle strap - in either black or tan, with a short heel 2-2½". Oh, and it's gotta be under $40. Preferably under $30."
These sandals below are Anissa by Clarks, but they are $84.

Here's the good news. I found a pair of Clarks very similar to these at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago for just $30. And they are extremely comfortable. Finding quality shoes on sale is the ideal situation, but here are a couple other finds for you just in case...

Some super inexpensive ones by Payless, Hoffman sandal, $23. Or how about these from CutesyGirl, just $17. A lot higher heel than you asked for, but they are an attractive low-cost option.
