I love to observe local fashion, beauty products, etc. while traveling, which has led me to some really cool discoveries. My latest find is these insanely awesome XTRATUF Boots from Alaska. And after I spotted these on everyone’s feet in Homer (I kid you not), I figured they had to be the most amazing and functional boots ever. Even the Deadliest Catch guys wear them. (more…)
I’m currently obsessed with foxes. I mean, how can you resist their cuteness. And luckily, I’ve noticed a flourish in fox-themed fashions for fall. From sweaters to phone cases to smoking slippers (yes, these are trending now), check out my favorite foxy finds below. (more…)
As exciting as it is to receive a beautifully wrapped present with a gigantic bow, it’s equally as fun to dress up as the present yourself! We’ve rounded up a chic bow frock and accessories that will have you holiday-ready in no time.

Missoni for Target-obsessed, did one of the below happen to you?:
a) you fell victim of the Target website crash and weren’t able to get anything?
b) you were able to order online, but when your stuff arrived it was broken, or the sizes weren’t right?
c) you arrived at your local target right when it opened but everything was already gone? (more…)
I have a confession to make: I chucked my ever-so-warm UGG’S aside yesterday when I realized that although they may be warm, they’re sure not meant for walking in the snow. I know this for fact because I took the trash out yesterday while wearing them and when I stepped foot back inside they were soaking wet…and smelled like wet dogs. My solution to this problem: Sorel boots! They’re warm, waterproof, comfy and stylish – what more could you ask for? (more…)
I know the Holiday season has arrived when the December magazines hit newsstands with their drool-worthy gift guides. Perhaps if I didn’t spend all of my money on hoarding the December issues, I could afford some of their offerings! I’ve narrowed it to my top 3 magazine picks this year so you don’t have to buy them all like me! Read below for my favorites in People Style Watch, Real Simple and InStyle.
You don’t have to purchase something that you’ll never use again just to show your Breast Cancer Awareness Support. There are tons of items that you’ll be able to use throughout the year, so shop wisely! Below are some of my fun finds that can be used everyday:
Believe it or not scarves are always in style no matter what season it is. I use them in summer to jazz up sun dresses, and in winter to keep my neck warm. This Lindsay Phillips Belleview Scarf ($25) is a vibrant pink and orange color and looks amazing with a plain black dress. For the month of October 25% of the purchase price will go to The Young Survival Coalition and The Mammography Voucher Program at Morton Plant Mease Hospital. You can justify it as an amazing new wardrobe piece that will help fight Breast Cancer!
I am pretty much obsessed with my new Philips Sonicare Toothbrush ($59.99) and I’ve never felt like this towards a brush before. Not only am I cleaning my teeth, but Phillips Sonicare is a proud sponsor of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month in October 2010 and 2011, the company will donate $100,000 to fund breast cancer research. Brush away for BCA!
If there’s one thing I don’t leave home without, it’s my Smashbox Lipgloss. This Limitless Long Wear Lip Gloss in Forever ($21) was created in a limited edition package, and all proceeds from the month of October will go toward the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Not only does the gloss stay on for hours upon hours, but also protects with SPF 15. This gloss looks stunning on top of a dark red lipstick – you’ll fall in love, I promise!
Breast SOS ($65 for 3oml), a signature product from all natural skin care line La Isha, is a must for every woman who wants to keep their breast and decolette area looking youthful. It helps improve overall color, texture and moisture retention of the skin, and helps to eliminate the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, discolorations and restore a tighter, springy resilience. It’s also a favorite amongst Breast Cancer victims as it helps to make breast reconstruction more comfortable for patients with its soothing essential oils. A portion of Breast SOS proceeds will go to the Breast Cancer Fund.
Happy Breast Cancer Awareness shopping!
Yes, that’s correct. I was able to visit Target while back home in NC. It’s a privilege coming from NYC since you have to travel pretty far by subway to get to a store, and all of the good stuff (especially the designer labels) is gone within a day. Plus it’s extremely hard to carry a lot of stuff on the subway ride home. Anyhow, here are my fabulous finds – all for under $100 total:
There were only 2 pairs of these Dolce Vita Buckle Ankle Boots for Target ($34.99) left and thankfully one of the boxes had my name written all over it. They’re very comfortable, and will look awesome this fall with some of my favorite summer dresses and a blazer.
Nude is the new black so I was extra excited when I saw this Xhiliration Ruffle Dress in Nude ($21.99). It’s a great color for every season and I plan on getting a lot of wear out of this. Cute in summer with some sandals and wavy beach hair, and sexy in winter with tall boots, leggings and smokey eyeshadow.
Can you imagine the disappointment on my face when I scrambled to get online the day Mulberry for Target went on sale, only to find that the Cerise Leopard Crossbody was SOLD OUT ($34.99). I was lucky enough to find one in the Raleigh, NC Target but also discovered Milo.com, a genius website that locates hard to find items within your local area.
What would we do without Target?! Stay tuned for several more great finds for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
During the month of October I’ll be showing several great products that you can purchase to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness. There’s something for everyone, including the Fashionista, the cook, the outdoors person, the electronics lover, the sports fanatic and so on. See below for some fashionably fun (and practical) ideas:
Betsey Johnson created a limited edition oversize tote bag ($75) for her 2010 Breast Cancer Awareness collection. This fashionable carry-all will fit just about anything and makes for a great weekend bag as well. A portion of the proceeds will support two of Betsey’s favorite charities: the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund and the Weill Cornell Breast Center of the Iris Cantor Women’s Health Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where Betsey herself was treated.
Check out the other items in Betsey’s Breast Cancer Awareness collection. Each item is imprinted with her personal declaration, “I’m A Survivor.
BCBG teamed up with Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation and created these chic BCBG “Dream” sunglasses ($120). They’re the perfect way to show support while protecting your eyes from the sun and they also have inspirational words and phrases are printed on the inside of the glasses. 25% of retail sales from each pair will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure with a guaranteed minimum donation of $50,000.
Simply Vera by Vera Wang for Kohl’s is offering this adorable sequin coin purse ($10) for the month of October in order to show off your support. I hate big bulky wallets and always drop my change in the bottom of my purse, so this is great to cure my habit of loose change…and will help to find a cure for cancer too! It comes in several great colors including Begonia Pink, Lipstick (pictured above), Rose Shadow and Silver.
100% of the net profit from the sale of this item will support the fight against breast cancer. Visit the Kohl’s Cares® site to learn more.
You can feel and look great with all of the items above and you’ll definitely be putting your hard-earned dollar towards a good cause. Be sure to do your on charities before making a purchase to make sure they’re legit. And stay tuned for more BCA finds throughout the month of October. Happy Shopping!
