Top Glitter Picks From Wardrobe Stylist Gretchen Bell

Gretchen Bell is a veteran wardrobe stylist who's worked on photo shoots for American Express, Target and Microsoft. She also does personal styling for real people and believes great style is about how you wear your clothes--not how much you spend on them. We agree.

That's why we invited her behind the scenes, onto the Glitter Sale floor, where she walked through racks and racks and racks of clothing. Below are a few of the pieces that caught her eye, and what she has to say about them:

"This vintage faux fur jacket is amazing. It has a darling empire waist with big pockets on the sides. It's very Mad Men. What I especially love about this coat is that it has the look of a leopard print without being traditional leopard. In fact, it's ocelot! The lining is impeccable, the details are spectacular, and the coat is only $24.99."

"This full-length sequin skirt is a total showstopper piece. I love the different gradations of gray and black and silver--it almost has a Missoni pattern to it. It would be amazing with just a white tee-shirt, a white tank, a white blouse. You don't need anything flashy on top because it's such a stand-alone piece. For a holiday party, it would be absolutely incredible. And it's only $14.99!"

"I love this Pendleton suit. It's great as separates. The skirt is just the perfect length. It would be terrific with a pair of boots and a short sleeve sweater for the holidays--navy blue, red or even a little fisherman's sweater. The jacket would be great with a pair of pants or a pair of jeans and a white blouse. You could wear it with a skirt and a turtleneck sweater or even a sequin top. It would be darling for Christmas. Plaid is so popular now. This is a classic plaid suit and it goes with everything. It's $19.99 for the two pieces, and it will never go out of style."

"This incredible men's cape from Edinburgh, Scotland is in impeccable condition. The quality and the workmanship is amazing. It's a beautiful plaid with gorgeous greens and chocolate browns. Look at the horn buttons. It's very Sherlock Holmes. This is gentleman's coat for a man who likes to be well-dressed. It's only $49.97, but it was probably hundreds of dollars originally."

"Look at this amazing blue brocade cocktail dress. It's the most stunning color. Imagine yourself in a sea of black, wearing a fabulous blue dress like this. It's really a standout. The styling is darling, so simple and classic, and the color is just unbelievable. Plus, it's only $29.99."
