Bargain News! Sweater Dresses on Sale

sweaterdresses on sale

I love sweater dresses. But sweaters are expensive. And dresses are expensive. So much sweater dresses are – you must be a genius because you guessed it – expensive. But I worked to find you sweater dresses on sale for under $100.

Sweater dresses for fall are perfect to wear all the time. You can also wear them for winter, these sweater dresses are great with boots and tights.  Sweater dresses and tights? Love it. Sweater dresses and boots? Love it.

Victoria’s Secret is loaded with sweater dresses, but most of them are 1) Way too form fitting/sexy to want to wear without being self-conscious, 2) Way too expensive! This is why Victoria’s Secret Sweater Dresses are mostly a no-go for me. However I did find one that I like a lot and included down below, it’s a gorgeous chocolate brown color and looks like it would move well. It has enough detail to make it interesting, but it’s all in a solid color so you can layer it with accessories like crazy (rings, tights, boots, hats, whatever).

How to Wear Shoe Boots (And Five Shoe Booties Under $100)

Buckled Zipper Booties from Charlotte Russe $20

Shoe Booties by kudumomo on Flickr

When it comes to shoes for fall 09, booties are still hot. Whether you call them a shoebooty or shoe bootie (or ankle boots), they’re cute. Calling them “booties” reminds me of the little booties that babies wear, but no one seems to mind. So, what shoe boots are cute for right now? And, even more importantly, let’s discuss how to wear shoe boots. Because the worst thing is to buy something great and then have no idea what to do with it besides look at it longingly in your closet.

June of JuneLin.com has posted pictures of booties seen on the runways for Hermes, J Mendel, and Marc Jacobs. Those shoes are BANANAS, as Rachel Zoe would say. But seriously, I PINE, I YEARN! And yet, I still can’t buy them because then I would have no ... Read More

How to Wear Kimono Sleeve Sweaters

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

kimono sleeve sweaters

Kimono Sleeve Sweaters have caught my eye. As it gets colder you might think you’d have to rule them out of your wardrobe, huh? Wrong. For one, they’re great to wear to places where you know you’ll be getting overheated (or even at home if you’re always too hot). For two, if you pair a fitted henley shirt or long sleeved shirt under them, you can wear them through all of fall and winter.

Jewelry for kimono sweaters? Aside from pairing a kimono sleeve sweater with a henley top I believe you can totally go overboard with jewelry. It can be boho chic or boho luxe. Wear earrings for sure – the bigger the better. Bracelets are great if you’re not wearing the top under the kimono sweater, but otherwise I’d go without bracelets and focus on rings and then either statement necklaces or a bundle of tiny necklaces piled onto your neck.

What else do you wear with a kimono sweater? Right now skinny jeans and leggings are hot, and if you pair those with a kimono sweater those look great because it’s such a great balance of proportions. But you can wear jeans or pants of any kind, really. If you go for the skinny leg look you can show off your newest winter boots or shoebooties.

Why wear a kimono sweater? What I like about kimono sleeve sweaters is how comfy they are – theyR ... Read More

Fun Wallets to Enjoy Like the Rockstar You Are

fun wallet plaid

I’ve put together a grouping of seven different fun wallets for you to peruse whilst (do I sound British?) you procrastinate about doing work, or homework, or those sorts of things that you inevitably have to do. Speaking of, I have dishes to unload from the dishwasher… Eh. But maybe I’ll just keep shopping online. It feels, somehow, much MUCH more rewarding.

From rubber, plaid, cats or owls – I’ve got you covered when it comes to the funkiest wallets under $50.00.

Item: Clubhouse Plaid Wallet from Zappos $31.00

Kiss closures at the top of wallets are my favorite kind, they’re so easy to use when I’m out shopping for more stuff. The plaid has enough pink in it to look cutsey.

Updating your Little Black Dress for Fall and Winter Parties

"What do I do with THIS?" Photo by le vent le cri on Flickr

You Asked the Style Question: I don’t want to have to buy a ton of new dresses and skirts. How can I update a black dress for Fall & Winter parties? When I add different shoes and a necklace it doesn’t feel like enough. I wanna be stylish, but I also need to save money. – Marie, Georgia

She’s Smart Answers: Ah, a common question that’s not always easy to figure out! Let’s tackle it. It’s great to actually get some wear out of your LBD (little black dress) since too often we disregard them and they stay hanging in our closet. We rationalize that we’ll wear them all the time, so we accumulate many black dresses (I admittedly have).

Style Inspirations! Whitney Port's Silver Party Look

Sunday, July 5th, 2009

silver dresses on sale

I was watching The City on MTV.com the other night and Whitney Port was in an outfit I LOVED. To recreate the look all you need is a silver dress, pearl earrings, pink lipstick, and black nail polish. The beauty products are easier to find, but you can shop around for the silver dress and pearl earrings. I did some shopping online for you and now I’ll share with you what I found. The thing about the pearl earrings that’s important is that they have a little more to them than just being pearl earrings. You’ll see what I mean.

Whitney Port’s style for less:
