Amber and Anitra chose the same Victoria Secret finds, with Amber saying, "I scoped out these cute leather jackets just for you (no faux, here!), all $160 and under! Enjoy!"

1. Cropped Leather Ruffle Jacket, $149. 2. Motorcycle Jacket, $159. 3. Halogen Crinkle Leather Jacket, $118

Vuitton
proposed these low priced picks:

1. Leather Motorcycle Jacket, $325. 2. Mjulian Leather Jacket, $140. 3. Marc New York Black Leather Banded Zip Jacket, $329.

Lastly, Jaida from the Blog The Coolest Period says, "I'm supposed to be going out to party with my sister for her birthday next weekend. I don't usually go out so I don't have anything to wear. I have skinny jeans and flats but all the tops I have are too casual and my flats are a little too casual too. Any suggestions? P.S. I'm a plus size college kid with limited funds. LOL I usually shop at American Eagle, Gap, Target, and Old Navy."
Suzy says, "I understand limited funds, I'm a college student myself! For tops you want something flirty, sexy or glamorous to pull off with jeans. Look for ruffle details and studs or rhinestones to give your outfit more drama. I also threw in some flat boots for comfort, and a vest for a polished look!"

1.Corsage Top in Black, $35. 2. Francesca Asymmetrical Ruffle Top by Aryn K, $55. 3. Jewel Studs Corset Top, $28. 4. Metal Stud Tiered Tunic, $23. 5. Estella Faux Leather Boots, $39. 6. Gianni Bini "Ritz", $50. 7. Gabriella Rocha Alyson, $40. 8. Jeffrey Campbell Find Mustard and Brown Combo Leather Flat, $89. 9. Kimchi Blue Tuck Vest, $30. 10. No Nonsense Vest in Black, $32.
Jemise found Jaida a couple plus sized options, plus versatile black heels:
1. Animal print smocked tunic, $44. 2. Corset Collard Shirt, $39. 3. Nine West Almond Toe Pumps, $79. 4. BCBGirls Pump, $80.
Ashley went the plus sized route as well, offering this advice, "I think nothing compliments an edgy skinny jean more than a flirty, romantic blouse. Also, throw on a pair of flats in a jewel tone that absolutely pops!" She offered a dozen options, here are a few of her suggestions:
1. PIAPO Sweet Lace Yolk Top, $24. 2. Sheer Bow Striped Blouse, $45. 3. Torrid Johnny Collar Halter Top, $38. 4. Steve Madden Kobraa, $69. 7.Paul Smith, $414. 6. Purple Snakeskin Flats, $18.
Amber says, "I found some great tops and shoes that will go great with the skinny jeans you already own. Best of all, these super-affordable tops come in a range of sizes. You’ll be ready to party in no time!"

1. AE Party Top, $30. 2. Knit Top-Cocoa Motion, $17, 3. Tie-Neck Fashion Blouse, $20. 4. Panya Ruffle Wedge, $30. 5. Valentina Peep-Toe Booties, $27. 6. American Eagle Kash Kitten Heel, $13.

I like Ashley's choices! She did a great job catering to curves. However, some of Vuitton's accessories were hot!

Heyy this is Jaida =D Thanks for taking the time out to give me ideas! I really appreciate it! I LOVED Suzy and Vuitton's options even though the websites don't sell my size, I could still get ideas for an outfit and go to a store that does sell my size to put those outfits together! I liked Ashley's ideas as well. Thanks, you guys!
