Alexander Lace-Up Bootie J. Crew $250

Alexander lace-up booties
These would be so cute with jeans or a skirt! Oooh, I love’em! I need to stalk these to see if I can catch’em on sale!

  • I received my Lorissa pumps from–they are the bomb! The site and the shoes, lol.  They came in two days, free shipping, and I found a promo code for $39.99 of–totally sweet!


  • The MAC blotting powder is working okay.  For the first days it held up really well, but now I am getting more shiny.  Hopefully my new kabuki brush will help.  I’m anxious to see how it will fare in the summer. 


  • I finished Victoria’s book over the weekend and I liked it, though I thought the chapters could have been a wee bit longer.  I felt like we were just girlfriends trading fashion tips.


  • Clinique has a new product called Pore Refining Solutions Corrections Serum that I would like to try.  I had a microdermabrasion a couple of years ago that me with larger pores–ugh! Stay tuned!

NEW Pore Refining Solutions Correcting Serum

  • I need more workwear.  I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for any clearnace or bargain items.

You Can’t Touch This (and you probably shouldn’t!)

When I was pregnant, about 7-8 months along, I tried on a pair of harem shorts.  They looked ridiculous!!! In fact, my friend and I could not stop laughing!  Her stepdaughter burst into my dressing room to see why we were so amused.  She immediately piped up “What’s wrong? Is your baby tickling you?!” 

With that being said, I don’t think I can do the harem pants trend.  They remind of two things:

1. Cow udders

2.  M.C. Hammer

While they are comfortable it is just too much slouchiness going on in the groin region, lol.  It looks messy and less than feminine.  They really don’t flatter too many body types either.

Now I could possibly work with these.  I definitely wouldn’t spend over $20 for a pair.  What are your thoughts on this summer trend?

Essie’s Coral Carousel


25 Apr

I did some quick shopping this weekend.  I stopped in Kohl’s to find something to wear to my brother’s wedding and found a cute sequined Lauren Conrad sheath dress on clearance for $12! I also got a pair of black sequined leggings for $5, a Vera Wang skirt for $23, and a tuxedo blazer for $36.  The latter two pieces were on sale.

I also stopped by Niche on my break and picked up a cute navy and tan satchel with gold detailing and a very short ruffle, tiered mini. I plan to pair the skirt with a black boyfriend blazer– a la L.A.
