What to buy your man for the holidays (without breaking the bank)!

November 29, 2009

Ususally for the holidays, instead of a gift, my boyfriend and I go to a Broadway show and a nice dinner. I find this to be more sentimental than the designer jeans I’ve been lusting after or the new Marc Jacobs bag I’m dying for. Instead, I love to spend some one-on-one time with my BF – but this year all of our weekends seem to be booked with Birthday parties, family dinners, etc. Soo now I must go through the tough task of actually purchasing a gift…specifically something he would never get for himself (this is key)! Hmm what to get??

What do you think? Have any ideas of your own? What do you and your significant other do for each other during the holidays?

Need a pop of color? Add YELLOW!

July 22, 2009

Any time I’ve ever needed to add a touch of color to my black and white wardrobe, I always grabbed something red, until now. All over the city my eyes jet back and forth at the vibrant yellows I see all around. There is something about yellow that just screams summer and I love it! The way it bounces off a fresh tan is flawless. I just bought myself a yellow cardigan and I feel so alive in it…like I have gotten 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep (wouldn’t that be nice?)How do you feel about yellow and have you been sporting it this summer?

Check out these options below. I wish I could buy them all, don’t you?

Forever 21 at ShopStyle

AMAZING new shirts and dresses that I’m DYING for (and you will be too)!

May 29, 2009

When I saw the new pieces that Banana Republic just came out with, my jaw literally hit the floor. The printed dresses, handkerchief-like blouses and embroidered shirts– all sooo up my ally! My first reaction was…”OMG, I have to have it all, what if it sells out before I get to it? I will be devastated!” On the flip side I know to never buy anything at Banana Republic at full price because it is guaranteed that it will eventually go on sale. Do you splurge on maybe just one piece because you obviously NEED it right now (NOT!)? Or do you wait for it all to go on sale? Quite the predicament…what would you do?

One Shoulder Ruffle Tops: What makes you feel sexy?

May 22, 2009

I made a quick stop at Target the other day and passed by the cutest shirt. $15 later I had the greatest addition to my wardrobe! I put it on that night with a pair of skinny jeans and tall sandals and I’ve honestly never felt more sexy…and classy. I’m loving this new one-shoulder look. It’s such an easy way to spice up an outfit while showing just enough skin…simply flattering for every body type (Target also has this shirt in plus sizes). Definitely pick one or two or three up, there are so many different color choices, you will NOT regret it.
