August Manifesto

Tomorrow the calendar flips to August and while it’s still Summer in reality, most clothing retailers already have one eye turned towards Fall. Soon it will be both eyes. Fall is my favorite shopping season (I adore layers!) and ahead of this I want to back up a bit and share where my mind is headed for this next shopping…

Diving into Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale

It’s funny how pleasant sales like the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale — available now to Nordstrom Credit Card holders and in preview to the public til July 21 — mess with my shopping mind. The idea of getting deals on next season’s items is very appealing yet for whatever reason I find myself leaning towards always buying too much in this sale. It’s…

Madewell picks of the moment

Where am I doing my lunch break shopping these days? Madewell, of course. It seems like every time I go into the store there are new delights to try on, add to my wishlist and buy as needed.

When I want to brighten up my wardrobe with cheery embellished stuff and ultra-flattering chic casual elements, I head for Sundance Catalog! Though on the pricier side this retailer has become one of my favorites because their clothing is well-made, fun to wear and lasts. Add in that they consistently source from small businesses and artisans and I’m swooning! Let’s…

Discovering fashion finds has never been so easy…

Amazon is working to step up its fashion game and I’ve been reaping the rewards this Spring, big-time. From cute date night dresses like the Esther One Shoulder Dress ($198, above) to deals and steals on brands I’ve heard of before and brands I have not, I’m having tons of fun cruising their huge fashion selection for everything I need. For…

Let’s sit down and swoon over Boden

About a month ago I felt my wardrobe was missing some pops of summer color — and Boden was there to help me out! A couple of orders later (and a successful stop at their sample sale in NYC this past weekend) my closet feels nice and bright. Right now, Boden is offering 30% off select categories. Let’s take a…
