Cute Shoes on Sale!

I'm a sucker for anything with snake, and this shoe is no exception, the shape, the not-so-high heel, the peep toe, and the low price of $67, I LOVE it:

Women's shoes: BCBGirls Lions - Black

They will look great with your summer pedicure and dress!

The peep toe slingback below is lovely in silver leather. I was thinking of getting them for a bridal shower, I have also suggested it for a bridal shoe - it would look great with anything, and it's only $51 -

Women's shoes: Nine West Falcoin - Silver leather

The modern heels below are sharp, and at the right price ($51) for experimenting with a really trendy shape -

Women's shoes: Nine West Dollface - Black

Clothes are cheaper AND more expensive...

I'm back in CA so back to regular postings, and I'll start with this article in the Times today - more "common" clothes are getting cheaper because the prices haven't been going up for inflation in quite a while, the whole time though the price of luxury goods has risen far beyond inflation. Interesting... Are people who pay more suckers? The article just glances over the fact that the cheaper clothes are cheaper mainly because the people actually doing the work to make them are paid practically nothing, but the majority of shoppers probably don't like the think about that either.

Barney's big sale started, as did Nordstrom's.

And I'm not posting a lot because I got engaged on Tuesday and went home to Chicago to go to a friend's wedding and start planning my own! Someone I told guessed that there would be more bridal stuff on the blog after this, that might indeed be true...

Spring Sales Come Early This Year

The WSJ article about earlier spring sales was no joke, net-a-porter just marked down so much stuff it's making me dizzy scrolling through it all.

The flailing retail sector is good for shoppers, for now at least.

Summer Clutch Sale

For summer events a fun clutch is a necessity, but it's just no fun if you don't find it for a good deal! I found a few that are totally on trend, and totally affordable -

like this wicker clutch, just like the more expensive Kate Spade and Michael Kors versions -

Then there is this cute gold one with a big buckle front and center -

I LOVE this pewter leather clutch -

There is something I love about this clutch, I think it's the detail in the leather on the front and the color of the leather, navy is a great summer alternative to black -

And this white one, which is also the most expensive of the bunch-

Happy shopping!

Shoe Sale at Pink Mascara

Pink Mascara Logo

is having a shoe sale - 20% off selected styles, use code shoesale until Monday.

Black Halo sale at Couture Candy and bikinis for small busts

has special Friday sales, today's offers 30% off of Black Halo, Aristocrat Denim, Syla, and a few other brands.

I love this Black Halo dress, and at 30% off it's not unreasonably priced, originally $328 it goes down to $229. If you have summer parties to attend (showers, rehearsal dinners, birthdays,) this is a great dress you can wear to all of the above. Just dress it up and down with jewelry, shoes and jacket or cardigan.
Black Halo Jersey Detail Bodice Dress in Print

Syla makes adorable bikinis, great for women with small busts, and at 30% off, a great deal -

Syla by Sylvie Cachay Ava Bikini

This one below is totally adorable, and please don't disregard it because the model has absolutely so meat on her bones so to speak - her hip bones jut out, it will look even better on a woman who doesn't have a totally visible skeletal structure - the scrunched waist of the bottom means it won't pinch like some bikini bottoms do.

Fashion Editor Shake Up

I had a friend who a few years ago questioned how it was I could read women's magazines because she assumed they were all about 'how to please your man' and 'how to hook a guy' but I showed her the ones I read and she couldn't believe that they truly were all about fashion.

Nina Garcia (of Project Runway fame) left Elle, and is now going to Marie Claire. Not sure what this means, some people said she didn't actually do anything at Elle anyway, but I hope that it means Marie Claire might become more about fashion. I get that magazine for some reason. I must have ordered it in a moment of weakness, I flip through it once and move on, either giving it away or throwing it right into the recycling bin. I just don't buy magazines for those stupid articles, while in Marie Claire it's not necessarily about how to find a guy, but about what men think about what we wear. You know what, I don't really care. I also don't buy fashion magazines for some scary story about cancer or disease that your doctor might miss. It's too sensational. I guess that's why I prefer Bazaar, Lucky and Vogue.

Bikini for Everyone...

so many readers find me because they are looking for advice about bathing suits, so I have another one I like, from Couture Candy and I think it will work for larger busts as well as smaller, and the bottom won't cut into your skin or create any kind of "roll," -

Gossip Girl Addiction

my Gossip Girl Addiction has gone from bad to worse this week. First Monday's episode was fantastic, and now these pictures of Blake Lively and Penn Badgley on vacation together in mexico. Since they aren't working out so well on screen these pictures are keeping the hope alive...

eLuxury Spring Sale Clothes

eLuxury still has a ton of sale stuff that are great for spring and summer weather,

like this adorable Karta white shift dress,

and this geometric print mini-dress,

I also love this Juicy Couture white pintucked jacket,

I think I've seen this dress in ads for the new Sex and the City movie, it's a really cute dress,

A lot of great pieces on sale, with one of these dresses just thow on a pair of sandals and grab a cute bag and you are all set. I love the jacket to toss on over anything from a colorful dress to a pair of jeans.

Happy Shopping!

Free Shipping at J.Crew

on orders over $100, until tomorrow (Wed 14th) use code SUMMERTIME

Gossip Girl

It was so good last night, the most satisfying part I think being Blair, Nate and Chuck all rallying together behind Serena and going off to get evil Georgina. Why oh why does the nice guy(Dan) have to be so stupid and easily duped though?

Warm Weather Inspiration - Affordable Dresses

I have been less than inspired lately by the clothes I see, so I looked around for some fun stuff and found this -

BB Dakota Esmerelda Dress

Such a cute dress, and it's only $90. That is fantastic, you can wear it with a jacket or cardigan, and also figure out how to layer shirts underneath if it's cool and you don't want to cover the adorable top.

I also like this one -

Soda Blu Contrast Flutter Dress

This one is so fun, and can take you into the fall, wear it with sandals in the summer and brown flat boots when the weather gets cooler. I love it. It's also only $93.

Phew, I'm re-inspired. Happy shopping.

Shopbop Sale today only!!!

Shopbop is giving 20% off of everything you order today only, use code MYDAY08!

There are so many things I want, how to decide....

People Really Do Win

I got home yesterday afternoon to a shocking email - I actually won one of Fabsugar's quiz sweepstakes. I have been entering things like that for a long time and was beginning to wonder who the lucky bastards were that won them because it sure wasn't me, but now it is - check out the bag I won (I haven't received it yet of course, but I can post a picture when I get it)

The Jill Stuart Sabrina Patent Tote. Apparently Lindsay Lohan was seen wearing it for a minute, which is not a high selling point for me, but I like the contrasting colors and I do like Jill Stuart bags, I even bought one not so long ago. So lucky me, went from pondering what bag I might buy for the summer, to winning one!

Politcs of Style

Back to one of my favorite topics - politicians, their 'style,' and idiotic public opinion. Hillary Clinton stopped wearing Donna Karan because she didn't want to be accused of dressing too nicely. What is this world coming to?

I don't get it. Everyone knows she has money, at this point she is financing her campaign with it. Shouldn't she dress as well as she can? Will people really hold it against her? Or is she just preemptively being stupid?
