If you didn’t already know this about me, I live to keep my eye out for blazing deals in an ongoing hunt for hot items at hot prices, without them actually being “hot”.. Speaking of hot, the long weekend Memorial Day sales are firing up and there are white-hot deals to be dealt with. I hope you are gearing up for some sizzling fun in the sun (another hot thing), eating hot dogs, and not just dealing with your hot mess of an apartment like me. However, if you’re looking to burn through some disposable income, herein are my top 10 picks from the hot-off-the-press Anthropologie fresh cuts (that are an extra 30% off this weekend at that). Geez, I’m on fire.
What can be one-size-fits-all and yet one wardrobe must have for the Spring and Summer? What can be worn over a dress, a tank and bottoms of your choosing, or even over a bathing suit? What comes in florals, aztec prints, with lace and fringe, and even embroidery? Kim-On-O I know you must be picking up my hints by now! I give you: the kimono.
Just in case you hadn’t heard, I love a pop color. Just in case you didn’t realize, I especially adore a pop from the red hue family. Just in case you wanted to know, these ankle strap ballet flats are a flat out good deal right now.
The continual search for the perfect white button down; am I the only one? Does it ever end? Or do you just end up with a ton of different white tops (like me)? Are they too boxy, too plain, too man-ish, too tight in the arms, too blah, too long, too short? Wait, are we still talking about white shirts here or the guys I’ve dated?

Warning: nerdy finance humor mixed with cheesy wardrobe talk contained in this post. Due to excess inventory and a fixed amount of storage space, I now force myself to adhere to a semi-strict policy of inventory control that we’ll now term the New In Something Out (“NISO”) method. If something new is going into my wardrobe, something else must come out. These decisions often pain me, but it is slowly forcing me to ensure that I not only like that new item, but love it too because I have to make room for it. Today I share with you a few pieces I’ve found worth making room for from the Gap.
Roses are red, my shirt is blue, as are these jeans, and so are these shoes…
Am I the only one that is feeling the blues lately? No, I don’t mean the down in the dumps depress mode blues, but it seems to be a solid case of the blue hues. In the spirit of all things blue, this is my blueprint for this outfit:
First, I don’t know why it shocks me when people haven’t heard of Nordstrom Rack, but yeah that’s a thing and it almost hurts my feelings. Is this you? If so, consider me shocked and you now enlightened. Over time I hope to give you the down low on all my flash sale prowess and deal hunting skills, but today we will start with an easy one: Nordstrom Rack.
Everyone seems to want them, I was on backorder for weeks before I received mine, I practically “sold” a few pairs to women in the doctor’s office and at work, and they are comfortable. The Jeffrey Campbell Taggart boot is my light and airy booty of the season! If you are willing to splurge, these are the shoes to do it on.
I wasn’t always a watch kind of gal. In fact, I didn’t really start wearing watches at all until the bigger chunky watch craze. Then on a whim, I decided to get my first big girl fancy watch: this Kate Spade Gramercy watch. It had the perfect mix of a large face, wide band, just a little bling but not too… View Post
Ok so I am the first person to roll her eyes when people say just about any new thing is “the best ever”, it “changed my life”, “I can’t live without it”. So if I’m asserting such a claim, while it isn’t entirely factual and life would actually go on, I really must love it , use on the regular,… View Post
There is just something about the pop of color a red shoe can give to an outfit that really makes all the difference. You can throw on a red shoe with an otherwise neutral outfit, standard jeans and a white top, or even with something unexpected (i.e. camo). I love red shoes so much that I actually have to stop… View Post
One of my favorite things to do is mix feminine pieces with edgier ones. I love the look of delicate laciness with super destructed jeans. This look is a combo where I’ve done just that, and even roped in my peplum obsession. These Frame Denim Le Skinny destructed denim jeans are my favorite black destructed denim to date. They are… View Post
