YOU STUD: Michael Kors in the Fashion Valley Mall offers this great studded clutch that will look sleek on your summer nights out and transition easily into fall. While you can buy this clutch in black or brown here ($124), fern here ($113) and gunmetal here ($174), you can only pick up the summery vanilla color in-store ($148). While you're there, snag some metallic gladiator sandals and nautical patent platforms for less than $200 combined. All of their classic, dark denim is also 40% off.
RA RA RA!: Cuffs are starting to make a statement and they are going to be even bigger in the months ahead. This Egyptian Pharaoh silver cuff from local designer Serrelynda is shiny enough to set off your tan now, and primed for coordinating with fall staples. Order this piece through her store on Etsy for $48.00, and check out her unique shell and griffin designs while you're there.
I'M COMING OUT: The Closet is one the best kept fashion secrets of San Diego. Located in Sports Arena, Pacific Beach and Ocean Beach, their selection changes more often than you can visit, and the prices for trendy pieces are unbeatably low. While fashion tops and bottoms will last longer with hand-washing, basics like shelf-tanks, tube tops, "beater" tanks, athletic tanks, basic tees and a variety of other layering items can survive even the most careless launder. Plus, they come in a wide range of colors from neutrals to brights. Take three of any marked basics and pay only $10 total (ongoing).
