Tis the season for shopping for the new pieces for fall & winter.  We are all on a budget though so when is it time to spurge or steal?  Here are some awesome finds that are totally worth stealing and saving your designer funds for something very special.

Rory Beca for Forever 21

I am so excited to for the Rory Beca 2012 line at Forever 21.  Beca’s colorful and feminine pieces are usually sold at boutiques, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and other high-end department stores.  Being able to purchase her collection at Forever 21 is such a great opportunity for all of us thrifty shoppers. You can check out the collection here.
