Have you seen this?

I love reading other blogs. It has been funny because I have seen this same jacket on several different blogs. It got to the point where I was a little jaded and thought how many times can different blogs show this jacket. But then I tried on this jacket and figured out what all the fuss was about. It is a soft cropped suede in the moto style which is all the rage currently. I went up a size because of the cropped style and also because I wanted the option to layer underneath. It comes in fabulous colors from a classic coffee bean to purple haze to burgundy. I bought the silver grey but I’ll be honest before the year is out I may break down and buy a more classic […]

Shopbop Super Surprise Sale

Shopbop just announced a surprise three day sale yesterday which means they have some merch sitting around that they are wanting to move.  Now is the time to be judicious and to pounce when that thing you have been waiting for finally wanders into your trap. So, I have tirelessly waded through literally pages upon pages of sale items (find them here) so that you wouldn’t have to. What have I got for you?  A couple of choice pieces.  So, Thanksgiving is literally three weeks from today.  That means holidays.  If you know you’ve got that holiday event/party coming up, you will thank yourself if you go ahead and get that sitch taken care of now and mark it off the list.  I am gobsmacked by these gorgeous numbers by Keepsake (I can’t even talk […]

Blush and Bashful

Shelby’s wedding colors or possibly the hottest colors for Fall???  Both, right?  The virtual shelves of the interwebs are filling up with some fabulous pale pink options for Fall.  And, while Pantone did predict this about a year ago, we may just be in a chicken and egg sitch here.  There are two truths about pale pink: it compliments most complexions and it looks cool AF with denim, especially faded denim.  You can hedge your bets and barely stick your toe in on this trend with this cutie from Topshop – good lines, practical, on fleek – OR you could totally lean in and grab this amazeballs coat. My favorite is the jacket below.  It will totally crush any Saturday night “going out” outfit sitch.  And, the clutch.  Seriously: so inexpensive and such a perfect pitch for […]

Happy Halloween…No tricks just treats

  With Halloween setting a record this year, a record high temperature, being cool will be the name of the game but I want pieces that will (1) be comfortable and (2) that I can throw on a layer  when the temperature  eventually drops. Plus Southern Living listed my neighborhood as one of the top ten places to trick or treat and we have a band party next door so I need my A game going tonight. Luckily Bergdorf Goodman 5F has some great pieces that just happen to be on sale. This sale goes on through November 9th but don’t delay these treats won’t last long. All items found under Shop the Latest. Frame Jeans in Black (69.00!) with this Kate Moss for Equipment Silk Blouse that gives me a disco feel. […]

Just loafing around

I’m obsessed this season with metallic. Ever since I wore my metallic pleated skirt from Zara and got sooo many compliments I’ve been grabbing anything metallic.  I recently came across these metallic loafers from Banana Republic. Y’all know that I’ve been feeling their shoes this season. Check out the post here. And these loafers do not disappoint. Oh and by the way, they’re on sale…$65.00. Yes you read that right. Another plus, they are so comfortable, no break in required. Take them out of the box and go! So what to wear them with? I love these cropped jeans from DL1961. If you missed the ShopBop sale  last week then no worries just go to DL1961 and enter code DLOCT16 for 30% off. Top it off with this Cashmere stupid long sleeve […]

Steals and Deals for Everyday Chic

You don’t have to spend a fortune to look fab every single day of the week.  Word.  This poplin blouse from Mango is a steal at only $49 and is a pitch perfect example of everything on trend this season with a little length, a little volume, a little poplin, and a little stripe.  And, this high-waist, let-down-hem denim from Madewell is a deal, to be sure.  You’ll look high and low for a better jean this Fall and this price is, well, it is way better than most jean prices these days.  These are great with great lines and very flattering. Some parting notes: Belgian loafers are where it’s at for everyday comfort and way high style.  Your velvet investment this Fall need not be expensive — AT ALL.  And, yep, the statement […]

Check. It. Out.

Psst. . . want to know the hottest ticket for Fall???  The checked blazer.  I know, right?  Doesn’t sound too sexy. Until you check out all the street style picts from Paris and Milan Fashion Weeks.  The ladies of the street are looking way hip and jaw-droppingly gorgeous in their wool, checked blazers.  You can totally rock your LSD when you take the checked blazer in a fresh new direction — pair it with a slim pair of black, cropped, boot cut denim (ones from Madewell are my all time faves – having a hard time taking them off these days), a chic tote (like the Balenciaga ones that have by now attained cult following status), and a smart poplin blouse, with maybe a . . . wait for it . . . […]

Patch it Up

After refreshing some jeans for Fall with the Shopbop sale, I decided I needed to do something with my old jeans. You know because they fit just perfectly now after being worn for a few years. Browsing through Zara I saw there they have a Comic meets Denim section and it came to me. I needed patches. Luckily I remembered that Saks had a great selection. I also found assorted patches here and here But don’t limit yourself to pair of jeans. Have fun and patch it up on a jean jacket, denim skirt, vest or even a small clutch. Also check out this article from InStyle  It has some great ideas on how to style your patches. The trick is don’t limit yourself. You can do one patch; twenty patches; in a circle, […]

Just a few more

Today is the last day of the Main Event 16 at ShopBop so if you still have a few more pennies left after Caroline and my suggestions then here are just a few more fun finds. I am in love with this Free People Bomber Jacket in Merlot. Pair it with this awesome Kiss Tee from Madeworn Rock. And what about a new pair of jeans. I’ve been coveting these Mother Ankle Fray Jeans. Finish it off with a camel/hot pink clutch from Clare V. This Vince Satin Camisole would be great underneath a blazer or a cashmere sweater for day. If you are going out then wear with a wide leg pant like these from Parker and these Madewell Octavia Tassel Sandals (which by the way would look great with the Mother […]

What to Grab Now

The time has come for Shopbop’s Main Event Sale – otherwise known as the mid-season sale, my favorite of all sales.  Especially because Amazon Prime.  And, even though it just got cool here in Alabama a minute ago, by now, I have figured what kind of vibe I am wanting to rock for Fall. Velvet is major this year and I have been eyeing this clutch for months now.  I intend to rock this baby with just about everything I have for Fall.  Or, try this super chic velvet blazer with jeans and a t-shirt all Fall and be as hip and with-it as Vogue UK’s Sarah Harris (one of my all time favorite girl crushes!!). If you aren’t planning on rocking a long floral dress with some boots this Fall, then you aren’t […]
