You probably already know that my New Years resolution was to wear more color. What better color to work in to my wardrobe than Pantone’s color of the year, Tangerine Tango, and what better pattern than the oh-so-popular chevron. LOVE this tangerine chevron top from ModCloth!
This tribal top finally made it from my “wish list” to “purchased” now that it’s on sale half off at AllSaints.com. I can’t wait to pair it with my bright rusty orange skinny jeans from Forever 21.
All Saint’s is also offering free shipping for most destinations, including US mainlands (check out the banner at All Saint’s homepage for full details). The savings don’t stop there – this top didn’t qualify, but you can also take an extra 20% off their knits using code ‘KNITWEAR’.
I am desperate for tops in general, but especially for fall. If you’re in need of refreshing your wardrobe, what better place to stock up on affordable fashion than Forever 21? I’m looking for a couple of pieces that can be dressed up for work and a few casual pieces for getting together with friends. I’m loving capes, ponchos, anything tribal, flowey, and tabbed 3/4 sleeves. What pieces do you need to add to your closet this fall?
Oh, I am so in love with these spiked earrings! I saw them in the “Deals and Steals” section of InStyle magazine, couldn’t stop thinking about them, forgot where I’d seen them, and then finally found them again at ShockBoutique.com hahaha.
Tarnished jewelry is so popular right now, in either gold or silver, and this spiked design is so edgy and unique. They are only $15 (take an extra 30% off ending Thursday at midnight) and are definitely on my wish list! LOVE!!!
Ok, so here’s my thing. I keep buying heels lately and I just don’t wear them. In fact, I’m actually nervous because I’ve been hooked on flats for so long that when I wear heels, I stumble around like a drunk girl. It’s crazy for me to admit that because not so long ago, my everyday (going to Home Depot and the grocery store) shoes were heels. So, I’m thinking, I need training wheel heels – you know a thick chunky heel as my gateway to all the amazing heels I’ve bought over the past couple of years.
Besides all of the above excuses to get these heels, luckily for me, chunky heels are way in style right now. In fact, I found these Chinese Laundry Sassyfras Mary Janes (Zappos $88.95) while looking for a Rachel Bilson look for less as she is seen in a pair of Chloe Mary Jane chunky heels all the time. This shoe is like a heel and a clog, both of which are very popular right now, had a cute little mary jane baby. It’s just adorable and because of the color, it can be worn with anything. Rachel was seen wearing her Chloe Mary Janes in a variety of outfits from a bow blouse and cigarette jeans to long denim shorts and a cardigan. So what do you think, should I go for it?
Have you ever been to a department store, something catches your eye, and you find yourself circling it over and over? This Jessica Simpson Lizza Leopard Platform Pump, also available in black patent or black suede, was the latest that had me in vulture formation. I am not one to wear animal prints, but the shape of this shoe, the colors and the pattern are gorgeous. If I dare to attempt the animal pattern trend, then I would defintely try it in a small dose such as a scarf or super fun footwear. For some reason, my eye is drawn to pumps with a built in platform lately.
The thing that I love most about Jessica Simpson apparel and footwear, is that she is known for her sexy style and I can see her wearing EVERYTHING she puts her name on (check out my most recent Jessica Simpson purchase). I can’t say that for the majority of celebs-turned-designers. These shoes are a bit pricey with a tag of $130, but if I have the urge to splurge anytime soon, this will be my prized purchase.
Update: Hey everyone, thanks so much for helping me decide on a Thanksgiving dinner party dress. I hoped this poll would help me control myself, but I ended up going with your top two picks, hahah! I’m going to wear your first choice, The Concord Drape Dress, to Thanksgiving dinner and the Fashion Fricasseee Dress on a date with my man or out with my girlfriends! I just got the dresses in the mail and they are amazing! Thank you all for helping me decide! So happy to take this post from “My Wish List” to “In My Closet” – I ♥ ModCloth.com!
Previous Post – 11.09.09 – Oh, ModCloth, why must you tempt me with all of your beautiful dresses. Thanksgiving is coming up and I need a dress for our family dinner gathering. My family is southern and conservative (no short dresses), but oh so fun, and of course, I always want to look stylish. I’ve painfully narrowed my choices down to 3 from many.
The red dress is so unique and I love the beautiful fold-over collar; however, I may pick this one up for a Christmas get-together. I thought I was sold on the black and white dress because it is so my style, pretty and a little bit edgy, but then ModCloth introduced the purple skirt dress – I believe it has my name all over it. I love the purple high-waisted pleated bow skirt with a hint of a sheen and the bell sleeves on the deep blue ruffle top are so pretty. It looks like jewel-tone separates that I so intelligently put together, hehe. Hope you’ll help me decide – please vote below.
PS – all dresses are under $53!!! How’s that for a look for less?
Charlotte Russe is having another free shipping sale. I always stock up because their site has more to offer and I can return what doesn’t fit at my local CR (no shipping either way).
Hope you’ll help me decide which color strappy cage platform pumps I should get. Whenever I’m stumped I turn to the fashion experts – my readers :) I was going for the black and then realized they came in taupe also. Oh decisions, decisions. Both will go with everything in my closet. They have a matte faux leather finish, cage strap details, peep-toe, and a back zipper closure. I do love the two tone of the taupe pumps – the platform below the peep-toe is a darker faux wood brown, which is very cool. Love!
Today is the last day of the Steve Madden super sale and this cut-out peep-toe platoform pump is at the top of my wish list. I love that they come in a mix of either a patent leather or suede finish and I want them in every color. The blue and purple are so vibrantly gorgeous, the pink is so soft, almost nude, the gold adds a just a hint of sparkle without bling, and the gray and black are must have basics.
The price is right for this pump at $89, and I may just get two to meet the $150 minimum to save 25% off (saves $44, basically a buy one get one half off deal)! Or maybe I’ll mix it up with something else from their amazing selection.
The Merrie’s very sexy slits slither all the way up to your ankle, while the side zipper allows easy on and off access. Dress these up or down as they will go with anything and everything in your closet!
