More Shoes Under 50 Bucks: Summer Transition

shoes under 50.1

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you will already know my deep and abiding love of shoes. My mother says this is a trait passed on from her mother, who also adored all things shoes. My mother, on the other hand, is not a shoe person. If it is practical and comfortable then it is just fine by her. This not how I roll. I am all about color! pattern! style! In the past it used to be the only cute shoes were also expensive. But now a days it is fairly easy to find adorable footgear for a decent price. I happened to notice an abundance of  shoes under fifty bucks at ModCloth, so I thought I would put together this round-up so I could share my finds with you! Happy shopping!

It’s Summer Sale Time!

summer sale

July is commonly known for pools and picnics, beaches and barbecues. But did you know it is also the month full of summer sales? Because the retail stores still run on ancient calenders, autumn clothing starts being delivered in August, therefore the summer inventory has got to go. Here are some of the items I think are the best buys right now.

summer sale 5

I am shocked that this dress (HERE) is on sale. Why? Because it seriously looks fantastic on many different body shapes. Want proof? Click HERE. You will see that two of my friends tried this dress on in two different states at exactly the same time and they both purchased it because it looked amazing on them. And let me assure you, they have completely different body types.

summer sale 3

I find summer sales are a great time to stock up on basics, like this tee shirt (HERE). I have the boatneck version of this shirt and I buy them by the half dozen. They wash really well and maintain their shape for about a year. Not bad for the price!

summer sale 1

Speaking of basics, how cute are these eyelet skirts (HERE)? You can buy this now and wear it until it falls apart because this shape and fabric will never go out of style.

summer sale 8

This fun, brightly colored striped dress (HERE) reminds me of the skirt Carrie Bradshaw wore in Sex & The City (HERE). Want to hear a random story about that skirt? It is actually a Nanette Lepore dress and it was a sample. For some reason when it was supposed to go to production they couldn’t get that fabric so it was never made. That is the only one of its kind in existence. I worked for Nanette Lepore at that time and had to take dozens of calls a day regarding that skirt, which is how I know about its history.

summer sale 4

Why hello lemon purse! So happy you are on sale! (HERE) Sometimes when I see something whimsical like this purse I have to purchase it on the spot. Other times I wait for that type of thing to go on sale. Now that it is marked down, I can’t think of a single reason not to buy it!

summer sale 7.1

I have this exact shirt (HERE) and love it. Though it looks really bulky at the bottom, it is actually pretty body conforming. I purchased the small and tucked it into a skirt with no problem. Also, just in case you were wondering, my bra doesn’t show through the cutouts at all!

I have this fabric in a dress (also on sale HERE) and adore it! It is so vintage chic! If you like this skirt (HERE) you should snap it up quickly because Boden tends to sell out fast once it goes on sale.

If you see anything you like and decided to click through, be sure to check out all of their sale items because there is a lot of really great stuff out there. I had a difficult time narrowing it down for this post.

Beach Day with Heart Of Haute

heart of haute 1.1

Having lived in Southern California for practically my entire life, I have spent a lot of time at the beach, and yet I have never really done a beach photo shoot!  After receiving this gorgeous dress c/o Heart Of Haute, I realized that the shore was the perfect place to really demonstrate the gorgeous aspects of this lovely frock.

heart of haute 2.1

Isn’t it a beauty? I just adore the red, grey, and blue floral print, and the cut makes my boobs look quite perky! Bonus! I also like that the dress is 100% cotton because it breaths nicely, which is perfect if you live in a humid area.

heart of haute 4.1

I paired it with some funky rings and my ubiquitous sunglasses (sold out but similar here).

heart of haute 5.1

There is something so relaxing about watching the waves crash on the shore. I can feel my shoulders lift because the weight of my stresses seem so light when I am at the beach.

heart of haute 3.1

For fun I put together a little video of my day at the beach, which you can see HERE.

To purchase this dress and/or to see the rest of what Heart Of Haute has available, click HERE.

Be sure to sign up to my weekly newsletter! Every week I put up a video that can only be seen by those who receive it.

Trend Alert: Fresh Fruit Fashion Trend

This week it is all about the fruit fashion trend. Has anyone else noticed the plethora of garments with fruit on them? I know I have. But I actually really like them. I happen to have a cherry sweater and jewelry, plus a purse and bracelet with lemons on it. After putting together this round-up, I’ve got my eye on the watermelon pajamas seen below. Which one is your favorite?

A Burst Of Blossoms

floral dress 11.3

Guess who was in the latest issue of Vintage Life Magazine? The ladies there are so wonderful and they asked for a photo of me in a floral dress, so of course I had wear my newest Trashy Diva frock which I purchased because I think the crepe myrtle pattern is stunningly gorgeous. There was no way I was going to not have that dress in my closet. Isn’t it perfection? Since I have received it I have worn it at least half a dozen times, which is fairly rare for me. I usually try to spread out my wearing of clothing so they will last longer, but in this instance I just can’t help myself.
