“Who’s behind those Foster Grants?” goes the famous line. Foster Grant being the legendary brand that invented sunglasses, first selling them on the Atlantic City boardwalk in 1929, then becoming a favorite among movie stars during Hollywood’s Golden Era. Now, who you will find behind Foster Grant lenses are everyday women like me, who want cute sunglasses at a great value – like the rose gold pair in today’s outfit, which go for only $15!

Foster Grant recently opened their first retail space here in Orlando at The Florida Mall, and I attended their Grand Opening event hosted by actress and musician Kat Graham on Saturday. Consider me completely sold on this brand, because getting to see hundreds of pairs in person, all of them within a price range of $15-68 and with 100% UVA/UVB lens protection – was like being a kid in a candy store. I love sunglasses and I’ve never seen so many cute styles that fit my budget under one roof!

Check out more styles below - which pair is your favorite? (I’m leaning towards getting the purple pair next!)

Vests are so clever! They contain all the sophistication of a blazer, while making - in some cases - an even bigger style statement. Take the catalog inspiration, for example. Pairing a long vest over a classic bow blouse is the perfect outfit for a casual Friday at the office, or any other time you'd like to feel a bit polished. It's an easy look I'd definitely try for a work meeting!

Who knew that pairing a plaid scarf with a full skirt and black tights could be so chic?! Just add some sparkle with a necklace or a trio of brooches and you're all set. (Bonus if you go with brooches: they keep your scarf in place when attached to the sweater!) Of course, there are always things I wish I could reach into the photos and fix - like switching to plain black pumps (no pouf), plus I've been meaning to buy a longer black skirt for AGES. (Today's look this finally motivated me to place an order: the 3rd similar skirt option below.) And while it may not hold a candle to the inspiration, both outfits have elements that are so perfectly festive for the holidays!
