With designer bag prices shooting up the roof, it’s always great to find cheap (I mean, really cheap) everyday purses that still look good. This Old Navy Faux-Leather Crossbody Tote (on sale for the amazing price of $25) is one that won’t make you feel bad about the wear and tear. It’s a great size that will accommodate most of your things—maybe even a laptop.

Gloves are for keeping your fingers warm, but sometimes they can make it difficult to do things, like use your phone. That’s why this winter I’m opting for these Aerie Cadet Fingerless Gloves on sale for $11.95. Your hands will be warm and your fingers will still be useful!

It’s all about layering this fall/ winter, and cardigans are a must have. This J. Crew long shawl cardigan ($98) is a bit pricey, but having good quality wool is worth every penny. You can layer it, belt it, or even combine with a cute summer dress and thick leggings to make it look like a fall outfit.

I’ve always liked cute PJ’s, and now that I live with my boyfriend I have a good excuse to buy them. Wearing sweats and an oversized t-shirt to bed doesn't sound very appealing, but I still need something comfy. This Oscar De La Renta sleepshirt (on sale for $53.20) is super stylish and sexy, yet lose enough to sleep in. Who says style has to end once you hit the pillow?

Banana Republic is one of my top three places to shop, but it’s not until I go inside one of their stores and pass by their jewelry display that I’m reminded of the beautiful and well-made accessories they carry. You can always find classic (gold hoops), elegant (brooches), and trendy (cocktail rings) pieces at BR. Their tangled beauty necklace (bananarepublic.com, $45) is a fine example of all three, and my personal favorite.

I’m so into with these studded flats (fredflare.com, $28) right now that when I receive the box in the mail, I just might act like a five-year-old on Christmas day. They’re everything I could ever want in a casual shoe—flat, great color (navy is so in right now) and subtle accents (I'm partial to gold). Oh, let’s not forget the great price, too. Now do you see why I’m so excited?

During the cold months, dressing in layers isn’t just about style, it’s about being practical. While the temperature outside is dropping, the heat is rising inside. The temperature is blazing at the Latina offices, and the layers start coming off by the time we send our first email.

With the holiday season comes many parties and gatherings, so what better time to buy a cute little number than now? You’ll want to dance the night away in this elegant Belted Jersey dress (victoriassecret, $78). It’s sexy (but not too much), comfortable (very important) and looks amazing in any of the three available colors.
