Shopping With American Express


A chance to win a $250 Shopping Spree with American Express

A few weeks ago we kicked off the fall shopping season with American Express. We're sharing tips for finding the best fashions online--and a few of our mistakes so we can shop smarter this year. Now the contest is wrapping up (only a few days left to enter). We're working with Membership Rewards again to share our 5 Fall Finds.

With a budget of about $500, I got to pick five pieces to add to my closet this fall. I wanted to jump on a few trends. take a look at my picks.

Jewel Tones are so perfect for fall. They work well with what's already in your closet (gray, navy, black) and are sophisticated and chic. I'm picking the Splendid Berry Tee ($66). Why it works: Though the material is t-shirt soft, the bold pop of color is anything but basic. This is a perfect item for the modern mom.


Scrunched Fabrics

(aka rouching) may not be here to stay, but we're jumping on the trend with an accessory pick. My next goodie--a pair of

Anthropologie gloves (

$98) in a green motif.

Why it works:

Boots can be pricey, and forget about runway ready when it comes to coats. When it comes to a trend that might not stick around we pick small touches like this one.
