The Shopping Diaries: No Excuses Needed

Don’t you hate having to justify things you’ve purchased? I can’t help it that this pair of shoes (below) just had to be mine! They were literally saying my name as I walked past them. OK, maybe not, but once I picked them up I couldn’t put them down. And since I was already returning a few items, I could use that money to buy the shoes. In fact, there was even some money left…

Spring Trends: Color Block

Although half of the United States is experiencing chilly winter weather, we do have spring trends to look forward to. The first of many trends is the color block design. It’s a very Mod style and reminds me of the 1960’s. I can see myself wearing #4 from Dorothy Perkins or #7 from Missphit. Which one is your favorite? Do you see yourself wearing this trend this spring? Lane Bryant Colorblock short sleeve sweater $59.95Wet…

Torrid has a Maternity Line?

Yes, like you, I had no idea Torrid carried maternity clothes. Most of the pieces are “internet exclusives” and very basic pieces. Have you actually seen any of these pieces in the store? And if or when you’re pregnant, can you see yourself shopping for your maternity clothes at Torrid?

There were even a few interesting sightings. It was held in “The Living Room” inside the W, which…

Topshop’s Got it Handled

Move over handbags, the satchel with the handle is making it’s mark as one of my favorite bags of the season! I love all handbags and I don’t discriminate, but this style is definitely on my to-buy list. I found a great selection over at Topshop. It doesn’t hurt that most of them can be worn as crossbody bags which is a bonus in my book. Especially, since I need my hands free for shopping.…

Just My Size…Proving me wrong.

If there’s one thing I love more than anything, it’s getting proven wrong when it comes to clothing. I know that sounds weird, but it’s true. I love that feeling of thinking a clothing brand is one way and then finding out I was completely mistaken. I’m kinda ashamed to say that’s how I felt about the Just My Size clothing line. I had this whole idea that because it was sold at Walmart that I…

Snow Boots for the Fashionista

As I write this, the snow has already begun to fall in the Northeast. Brrrr…I love the snow, but what I’ve heard about this storm is not appealing. So, what does any fashionista do in the snow? Put on fabulous snow boots of course! As a California girl, I’ve never owned a pair of snow boots. The closest I’ve gotten to any cold weather boots are my trusty Uggs. Sad, I know.Boots by MICHAEL Michael…
