After a long hiatus, I’m back… and sporting new wears from Anthro… love this color!


eShakti – Made to Order Clothing!

June 2, 2010

I hope everyone had a sunny Memorial Day weekend! I surely did and have two bright red sunburned knees to prove it.

Recently, I’ve been hearing a lot about “made to order” clothing – and also how complicated it can be to actually place an order because of all the strange measurements they request. The gals and I were just talking about this at lunch today.

Low and behold, I sat back down at my desk and found what looks like to be a new, very promising “made to order” clothing site called eShakti.

. . . and they have some REALLY cute stuff.

It looks like you can order any item through their standard sizing (0-26), but still can choose the length of the skirt, for instance), or you can totally customize your outfit for $15.

The Perfect Summer Accessory

May 24, 2010

I love, love, love this little ring! How cute is this? For $45, this Betsey Johnson fish ring is the perfect addition to any summer outfit. I might just have to snatch this up (post spending freeze, of course).

Outlast Lipcolor – Best Bang for Your Buck

May 21, 2010

The ladies in the office know of my recent conundrum with lip color (I know, what a problem).They also know of my obsession with red lips.

On Friday, CVS was having a BOGO sale on my favorite new lip product, CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lipcolor. Since Friday, I’ve returned three different shades. I couldn’t decide! What if I made the wrong choice!

My favorite, and final choice ended up being the “Ever Red-dy” shade, #507. I LOVE the color… and what I love about the product the most is that it DOES NOT fade. I actually need to use makeup remover to take it off at night so I don’t go to bed looking like… well, you know.

So, if you’re looking for a good, solid, drug store lipcolor, go straight for the Outlast.

Steal of the Day

April 23, 2010

I saw these Mossimo sandals┬á on Amy from ShopMamie last night… and they’re great! I have been eyeing a very similar, more expensive pair by Steve Madden, but seeing these in person, you really can’t tell them apart. For $22.99, there are no excuses!

UPDATE: I received these sandals a week or two ago and wanted to let you know that they do, in fact, run a little big. I had to return the 7.5s for 7s. Otherwise, they’re great!

To Clog or Not to Clog?

April 21, 2010

Hi folks,

Sorry I’ve been quiet the past few weeks… I feel like I’ve been in a fashion/writing funk recently, but I’m feeling back in the groove. I sadly didn’t get a call back from Rachel Zoe’s people for that contest, but I suppose my big break is yet to come : )

So, to start off, I thought I’d get your opinion on yet another new – old – trend: the clog. I never really liked clogs when they were popular back in the day, but the latest iteration is making me look twice – maybe. What do you think of these two?
