Post-Holiday Wish List

January 3, 2010 by

What I love that didn’t come under the tree. I’m not bitter at all, because now many of the items are on sale and being marked down even more daily. The early bird doesn’t always get the worm, those who can stand to wait until after Christmas can delight in the deals.
This is just my personal little wish list for the season, and as you can see it is mainly accessories. Why? Because I am trying to save money by updating my wardrobe with accessories instead of clothing. Sometimes you can’t buy it all and you have to prioritize…

2. Christian Louboutin $595
3. Amazon Kindle $259
4. TOMS Shoes $54.95
5. Forever 21 $25.80

Holiday Happenings…on a budget

December 18, 2009 by

Hop on the holiday party circuit looking your best with festive and affordable frocks and accessories. I’m all about saving money this year, but looking fab is never not an option.

1.) Forever 21 $24.80 – With Forever 21 you have to really be an educated shopper in order to sort through the cheap and find the chic. This dress is silk, and coming from a lower end retailer I would typically say steer clear, but the tailored quality makes the sheath look more Alice & Olivia than Forever. So don’t stop at this red light – GO!

2.) Forever 21 $6.80 – A statement sparkling jewelry piece like this is the ultimate wardrobe must have this holiday season. If you’re on a budget this Forever bold bauble is a clever choice!

3.) See By Chloe black tights $55- Tights are mandatory with this outfit to set off the red satin and silver pumps – without some opaque black, I’m afraid you’ll look terribly trashy. Look, you can get tights anywhere at any price point – CVS and Walgreens even! So cover those legs and fool the fashionistas about the whereabout of your fashionable finds.

4.) Nine West $35- These mary-jane silver pumps might not be to everyones liking, but they sure do add that extra bit of holiday glitz and glam to your step. Make the pair pop with dark tights, with this ensemble black is best, and mini or fun frock like this. Not to mention they are on SALE, so even if you do only whip this out this time of the year or even just in the last remanding days of 2009 – you could possibly reason the purchase.
