Promising review: "As others have mentioned this fabric is soft, stretchy, and lovely. I ended up ordering a second one of these because it was nicer than expected.

Promising review: "Very beautiful skirt! I am usually a size medium, my waist size is 27 inches, 5'3" in height, and I am 125 pounds. The small was perfect for me. The hem fell a little above the ankle — it is a little long but you could always wear with heels." —Lucy

7. A pair of acrylic and resin statement earrings to have you on trend without breaking the bank.

Promising review: "Okay, I honestly had low expectations because it was only $10, but these are so cute! They aren't too heavy, they aren't too big or too small, and they don't look real cheap or anything. Also, they came with a pair of gold heart stubs that I hadn't expected. I'm really happy with it." —LeAnn Get them from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 12 colors).

8. An ultra-luxurious cashmere-blend sweater, because you deserve to be drenched in only the finest of fabrics.

Promising review: "Soft, cozy, and a beautiful sweater. Cashmere that is reasonably priced. Runs slightly large, but I am going to keep it because it definitely speaks to the new oversized sweater trend. If you like your sweaters to be true to size, buy one size down. I got the brown color and it is rich and saturated like chocolate." —CJ IN AZGet it from Amazon for $27.37+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 13 colors).

13. A leopard-print chiffon blouse, because leopard print is a neutral and goes with everything and I won't have anyone telling me otherwise.

Promising review: "Yes, it is sheer but that is kind of the point. I will wear a sleeveless mock turtleneck, tank, or cami under it. Unless you are petite and short-waisted, it might be hard to tuck in completely due to the splits on the side. However, I wear it with just a front tuck and hanging out in the back." —RedGet it from Amazon for $17.99 (available in sizes XS-L).

Promising review: "This dress is very simple so you can add extra accessories. The material is also lightweight. The length is perfect for me since I’m 5’2: — it comes right to my calves. I got a size small and it fits true to size." —Jalissa QueenGet it from Amazon for $3.99+ (available in sizes S-XL and in 34 colors).

15. A cushy oversized faux-shearling coat fluffy enough to keep you warm during those chilly autumn nights.

Promising review: "Awesome jacket! It's so soft and moves around freely. This jacket feels like what I imagine cuddling unicorns is like. Heaven! It hits mid-butt, and the sleeves reach my wrist no problem. The inside is the exact same as the outside, the consistency is nice. There's also no under arm bunching but following the other reviews, I did order up one size. I'm normally a large but purchased the XL. (For size reference I'm 5'7", 180 lbs, 38DD bust.) There's plenty of room for me to curl up in this thing without looking swallowed by it, which I truly appreciate. As far as actual warmth, well, five stars on that too. My job keeps it 60 degrees, which is why I bought this, and for once I'm not constantly shivering. Perfect for a Florida girl!" —YasGirlGet it from Amazon for $7.89+ (available in sizes S-3XL and in 12 colors).

Promising review: " This skirt is nice, it feels real even though it's not real leather (thank goodness :-)). The skirt is more A-line than it appears in the picture. Also, it's a nice length, I'm only 5'4" and it is a nice length on me. The zipper works fine and overall it's a really nice skirt — no pockets but nice flow to it." —KatKanDoo

18. A comfy leopard-print cardigan long enough to cover your butt — plus it's leopard print, which is the best damn print for fall and winter.

Promising review: "I love it. It’s soft and good quality, especially for the price. Usually, a sweater/duster is a bit more expensive than a traditional-fitting sweater so I wasn’t sure what to expect as far as quality but I’m very happy. Zero complaints. I’m excited to wear it this fall/winter." —TabithaGet it from Amazon for $28.99 (available in sizes S-XL and in five colors).

Promising review: "LOVE THIS DRESS! I was worried about the material maybe showing every little lump and bump, but this is great! It's flowy and not super fitted, yet still gives a good shape. I’m 5’2”, 155 lbs, 34DDD, and the large fit great. I could’ve possibly gone down to a medium (it’s roomy). The material is pretty thin, but I love that for the summer. I think it’ll be cute with leggings for the winter. Great buy!" —Sandra Jean

Promising review: " Beautiful...gorgeous skirt! I got so many compliments on it. I'm very happy! I'm about 5'2'' and 120 lbs, it fit like a glove and very easy to move in. If you've got a bit of a rump, beware brightly colored panties. I was able to see a pair of mine through the white dots on the color I bought. Ha ha. Otherwise, this is a wonderful purchase." —Kristal GlennGet it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in sizes S-2XL and in six colors/prints).
