Have you been to @lulusdotcom?

Tuesday, March 29, 2011
I discovered this website while catching up on my celeb gossip at my favorite website DListed (Michael K is hilarious!) I rarely click on the advertisements on the sides, but these shoes caught my eye and well they were shoes so of course I was going to check them out! Smile
The shoes are by Soda and are called Octet Black & Beige Striped Slingback Wedge Heels. I think they’re sold out on LuLu’s website because I couldn’t find them on the site anymore, but I did find them at Amazon, but depending on your size they can be limited! The fit is true to size so if you wear a 6 order a 6. I received so many compliments the first day I wore them, I seriously thought someone was going to try and rip them off my feet! The day I wore them was quite busy at work (I wore them on Casual Friday with my capris) and I then had a mini mommy and son day and we went to the mall and I will admit, by the end of the day they did hurt a bit, but I didn’t get a chance to break them in, since I wore them the very next day after receiving them! I will definitely wear them again and see how my feet feel at the end of the day.
I love the silver circle accent on the strap and the bow is not too cutesy and they give the shoe just the right touch.

Sometimes a girl needs some sparkle…

Monday, March 28, 2011

…and when dear Edward isn’t around I’ll settle for @kohls_official’s Candie’s Platform High heels. Not only are they a great pick-me-up, but they’re also very comfortable! I’ve worn these grocery shopping at Walmart and walks around Target and I wasn’t looking for some $5 flip flops to put on. You know what I’m talking about. Winking smileI’ve also worn these with different types of outfits from business attire to the more casual Jean Fridays. And it looks like I’m not the only one that’s falling in love with these shoes because they’re no longer available online and it doesn’t look like anyone is willing to part with theirs. I know I’m not!

I love my new Cardigan!

Sunday, March 20, 2011
And so does everyone else. It’s such a great Spring color and everyone is so sick of this cold weather I can understand how a simple cardigan could brighten up someone’s day. I must admit, it did put a bounce in my step! And the two days I wore it were a bit chilly, but it did keep me warm while I was outside. The big test was whether it would keep me warm at the office and I’m happy to report it did! Here’s how I wore it for the first time.
Trench: Daisy Fuentes for Kohl’s
Purse: Kathy Van Zeeland
Sunglasses: Oakley Dangerous Breast Cancer Awareness Edition
Cardigan: At Target by Merona
thanks to
A Fashion Fixation
Tee: Simply Vera Vera Wang for Kohl’s
Skirt: Ralph Lauren
Tights: Hue at Dillard’s
Boots: Carlos by Carlos Santana Women's Duel Tall Riding Boot,Purple Suede,6 M US reviewed here

Have to give a shout out to my hubby for taking the pics, thanks Babe. Red heart

Hello Mr. Postman

Saturday, March 19, 2011

The Postman has arrived at Dillard’s! I must admit looking at this bag online didn’t make my heart skip a beat, but once I had my hands on it, it knocked the Word Up satchel right off it’s pedestal! The Mr. Postman satchel actually has a back pocket that opens unlike the Word Up that only appears to have pockets on the outside. It comes in two different colors a light pink/rose color and a black/newspaper print shade. I prefer the light pink. Here’s a look at the two colors side by side.


I love the lock accent on the front, which is not an additional pocket, from what I could tell anyway. And of course it has the detachable strap so that you can carry it as a cross-body, which I love. If I know I’m going shopping I definitely carry a purse I can wear cross-body, which is why I own two of Kathy’s Croco Club Cross-body bags.


You would be amazed at what you can stuff in there! I originally bought the yellow at Dillard’s and when I spotted the other one at Ross I had to snap it up for a Fall bag last year.

So there’s a preview of the Mr. Postman and if you don’t have a Dillard’s in your town it looks like the only place to order the Mr. Postman is at QVC. Except it looks like QVC may be out of the pink color and only has the black and white in stock. Also if you look at the Mr. Postman QVC is calling “multi” it looks like it has a much darker tint to it than what I spotted at Dillard’s and the smell that was mentioned in the reviews I didn’t notice at the ones in Dillard’s. So which is your fave of Kathy’s newest bags?

Woo hoo! Thank you @afashionfix!

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

A few weeks ago I entered a giveaway over at A Fashion Fixation. Imagine my surprise when I won! I couldn't wait to get my new cardigan!! Well it arrived today and I love it! It's a perfect color for Spring and its a 3/4 length sleeve so it should keep you warm in the office but is still lightweight enough to be worn outdoors. I'm actually considering wearing it tomorrow because I can't wait to wear it. Lol If I do I will write up another post and let you know how it held up during the day.

Thanks again for the giveaway Ashley!
