I know what you’re thinking. No, it’s not the 1994 Blackstreet hit later popularized by a remix with a line dance number. No, it’s not a late night call or message from an ex that innocently starts out as “hey”, but you naively answer out of boredom or curiosity. It’s a call to all my booty lovers. No, not Sir Mix A Lot “Baby Got Back” type of fans. The fans of getting real “Ginuwine” leather and suede booties at a fraction of the cost. I’m talking brands like Lucky, Dolce Vita, Marc Fisher and even Frye for $35-$99 so “come on and jump on it”!
Yes, these are 100% MY lashes without the use of an eyelash curler or mascara. I seriously thought I had crap lashes and people were just being nice when they’d comment on me having nice long lashes. Then my eyebrow aficionado told me about a great service that transformed my lashes in about an hour from flat to fleek (I might hate myself just a little for coming up with that cheesy tagline). These are my lashes, and this is their story.
You might be throwing away free money! A dolla bill here and a dolla bill there can really add up. Especially when you’ve earned them for free with minimal effort from purchases you were already going to make. Did you know that I’ve earned over $2,000 in real cash just for online purchases since 2013? Did you know that, in addition, I’ve barely spent any actual cash on household products in the last year, unless I needed something right away? Before you start hitting the Black Friday deals, and most definitely before you spend your entire day scouring the deals on Cyber Monday, check out a few ways I’m making the most from my shopping addiction.
Holy Crop! We knew flares would come back eventually, but who’d have thunk we’d practically be styling highwaters…and loving it? Well maybe you don’t love it, but I for one was certainly ready for a break here and there from skinny jean after skinny jean after skinny jean. So I tried out these released hem crop jeans and was on the band wagon!
Maybe it’s my love of Austin Powers and his blue velvet suit, or the strong desire to belt out the lyrics to “Black Velvet” by Alannah Myles at the top of my lungs every time I think of the fabric, but I’m seriously crushing on velvet right now (this velvet burnout dress included). So if you’re looking to dip your toe in the velvet sands this season, I’ve rounded up a slew of velvety smooth pieces of all sorts in all different price ranges.
Never fear the deal hunter is here! I’ve reconstructed this outfit of neutral grays and taupes for you with options for the girl who has to have the real thing to the girl looking to recreate this look on a budget.
Remember in the 90’s when we wore our floral printed spaghetti strap dresses atop a baby doll tee, some chunky mary jane-esque shoes, and a choker? Hear some things in that question that sound an awful lot like what’s in the stores right now? Then you heard right. Yes, some 90’s trends are back, but when something does come back, it doesn’t always come back the same way and that’s my favorite part. Here is my play on the 90’s spaghetti strap dress with two looks in this cami midi dress (that won’t break the bank either).
The correct online ordering or searching terminology and fashion magazine lingo is “denim skirt”, but how many of you just like to call it a good old fashioned “jean skirt”? If you didn’t catch on to this denim craze trend this Summer, you might want to rethink it now, because I’m taking my jean skirt with me into Fall fashion with two outfit ideas to share (with photos from a new photographer), plus I’ve rounded up some of my favorite jean skirt choices from pencil to buttons starting at just $18!
Have a tunic and think you only have one option for wearing it? Here’s how I transformed this one tunic into 3 slightly different looks just by tying it (which you could also do by knotting). I bring you The Tunic: Three Ways!
Confession: I am a Free People fanatic! Ok ok, I’m obsessed over a plethora of things, Free People just happens to be one of them. The fabrics are flowy, the prints are fun, boho chic just so happens to be very in right now, and the quality is typically superb, but the price can be steep! Try as I may to find similar styles in the off brands, my little brand snob ways can just feel the difference in quality. Heck, I can even smell it in the cheap fabric (maybe that’s just the scent of the crusty warehouse it came from or the barrel of oil it sat next to as it made the voyage across the ocean, but I will send back a funny smelling garment in a hot minute or throw it in the giveaway pile if its nonreturnable). That’s how spoiled I have become! So how do I pack my wardrobe with scentless Free People items at a fraction of the cost?
Insert: the deal hunter!
I’m ecstatic to announce a new feature to my website that makes my retail sharing much simpler for you and, quite honestly, me too. Don’t fret, I’m still going to write punchy and humorous posts (and if you like those, you’re going to love what I’m working on next), but for those of you that want to skip all that and just get down the brass tacks of an outfit, where to get exactly what I’m wearing (like this vest and these shoes) or a close runner up (like with this older dress I’ve paired them with), this is for you.
Tops off to this Anthro top, and every other full price Anthropologie top for that matter with 20% off all tops and free shipping over $150. It’s only a feels like balls hot temp of 110 degrees or something crazy outside right now, no big deal, but I’m looking ahead to Fall and have stocked up on a few transitional pieces. Check out the deets on this “matchy matchy” look, featuring an Anthro top that made me say “it will be mine, oh yes, it will be mine”, and some other items either currently in my wardrobe, officially ordered with this sale, or on my “I’m probably going to purchase before the weekend is out because I NEED them list”.
