BUYING TIME: Function and fashion rarely combine successfully, but watches are proof that it can be done. Tourneau in the Fashion Valley Mall carries gorgeous designer watches in the latest styles as well as vintage classics. Now through August 31 they are having a 50% off sale on all certified pre-owned timepieces (regularly priced from $200 to $2,000). Even if you have a watch, stop by and admire the Dior "La D" line of watches which feature stainless steel, mother of pearl faces and diamond accents.
ROBES REMODELED: Silk scarves add class to any outfit and can save your hair from wind, sun and convertibles. San Diego and Denver designer sewKimono creates silk scarves and other accessories from vintage Japanese kimono silk.

The Red Tones scarf combines raspberry hues and rich red panels for an eclectic and interchangeable look. Pick it up for only $14 in their Etsy store.
THE PAIR YOU WEAR: Basic black flats are an important addition to any wardrobe, and Target in Mission Valley is boasting a wide selection of slightly pointy-toed versions for just $16.99. They are also available in a fashion forward black or red plaid, and blue, red, silver and gold versions can be found online.
