5 Under $50: Francesca's Collections

You know how sometimes you forget about a store, then revisit, and realize you want everything? Well, that's how I feel about Francesca's Collections (, one of my longtime favorites for super stylish apparel, shoes and accessories, priced mostly under $50! Keep reading for 5 of my favorite finds for fall.

P.S. My friends at Francesca's recently emailed me to say "hi" (that was the reminder I needed to revisit their awesome site) and they offered to share an exclusive discount with you guys! Use code BUDGETBABE to get 30% off a single regular priced item (online only) good through 8/31/11.

1. Going Places Dress, $48
This dress reminds me of Tucker for Target with its casual, vintage feel. Add a cool belt, tights and boots for the perfect fall look.

2. Delicate Demeanor Necklace, $24
This luxe-looking bib necklace is such a great way to update a little black dress for fall. You could also pair it with a boatneck tee tucked into a tulip skirt à la Cupcakes and Cashmere (here).

3. Destination Tote, $48
Here's a bag with a cool J. Crew feel that melds form and function, making it a smart option for work or school. The combination of leather and canvas makes it work year-round.

4. MIA Jay Flat, $48
I love a good cap-toe flat, there's something so chic and timeless about the look. Pair these with dresses or your favorite skinny jeans and top.

5. Freshly Picked Blouse, $44
This feminine blouse is a fun way to wear florals for fall, whether topped with a black blazer or tucked into a skirt. You could even wear it out for night with leggings and pumps.

I LOVE Francesca's!!! I want my closet to look like a Francesca's store!!! THANK YOU for the amazing discount!!! It will be put to good use. :-D
