Inspired by a future first lady? Get her look is having an interesting yet inspired sale.

Pick a designer dress that's like one worn by either Cindy McCain or Michelle Obama, and you'll get 20 percent off today through Nov. 4.

So if you like McCain's look, which includes dresses by designers such as Escada, Carolina Herrera and Oscar de la Renta, you'll be able to pick from dresses with large collars or those nipped at the waist.

Or pick a dress with Obama's more casual look of belted shifts and chunky pearls. She's also more likely to show off her shoulders and arms and experiment with prints, so you'll find those on sale too.

Vintage jewelry show and sale

Don't let the boss know, but one of my favorite sites to browse each week is, the Cary jewelry store at the Arboretum.

I just adore looking at the old (and sometimes new) jewelry. I wish I knew the story behind every single piece. I'm often struck by what circumstances caused someone to part with some of the pieces. They're that gorgeous.

Starting tomorrow, the pickings get even better when the annual vintage jewelry show and sale gets cranked up. The dealer coming in is a third generation family from the Northeast that collects pieces from the Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco periods. Need I say more?

More than 300 pieces will be at the show, and they're all marked off 25 percent. The sale runs through Oct. 23.

For a teaser, check out what they have here.
