Earth Day is here, and unlike a majority of American holidays it’s not one where we’re showered with Hallmark greeting cards, excessive candy, or presents. Though if you’re feeling in the holiday spirit I’d be more than happy to receive any of the previously stated!
Recently, I got an e-mail discussing Old Navy & TerraCycle’s team up for Earth Day that sparked my interest!
Once I heard about Keds new little adventure around the U.S. I knew a post was about to brew. (Like a magical blogger pot that needs to be stirred.)
I’ve always thought Keds were cool, even if my peers in high school or Skechers begged to differ. They can be stylishly worn with almost anything! Yet, they’re still comfortably chic. Their new lines feature eco-friendly shoes, canvas shoes, and design your own shoes!
Don’t get me wrong. I’m a sucker for Victoria’s Secret swimsuits, bras, and pretty much anything else, but that doesn’t discount the fact that punching Victoria and stealing her secret wouldn’t bring me some delight.
Each one of these online shopping sites will help in finding your personal style and pieces that actually fit into your wardrobe. It’s great for personal use, but ideal for this years holiday shopping!! When your best friend checks the tag of your Marc Jacobs shirt or wonders how you were able to afford 2 pairs of 7 for All Mankind jeans when she knows your salary can’t, you can make a decision.
Why is jewelry one of the greatest things in life?! Well, you never hear anyone saying, “I need to lose a few pounds so I can squeeze into that necklace,” it doesn’t shrink (that I know of), it’s one hand-me-down that actually could be worth something, and it might be the only piece of gold you ever own outside of that tooth filling you had done last year.
One of my favorite things about jewelry is buying pieces that are unique. Anyone can have a pretty necklace with a dangling diamond heart at the bottom, and if you’re a woman, it’s likely you already own one from an ex boyfriend you’d like to forget. Not to degrade the classic heart, but it’s probably time to give in and replace it with something new. So that brings me to this amazing jewelry site I recently discovered called ShopNBC. Not only do they have many options, but they have something that most sites don’t: the Far East Market!
Tucker for Target by Gaby Basora is so far my favorite designer spotlight! If it wasn’t for the flowy tops and the bold bohemian style patterns, it’s for the mere fact of not having to walk up and down the stairs to grab a giant cardboard box marked WINTER or SUMMER. Her clothes are simply…. SEASONLESS! So test them out (you can afford to), stock up before they’re gone (did I mention Oct. 17th), and then throw yourself a party and DANCE!
5 Ways to Wear Tucker for Target
As an extreme J.Crew fan with an ATM card that holds only enough for J.Crew Factory I believe a little gift from the heavens has certainly been sent down! I feel it is my pure duty to shop at an outlet anytime one is found, whether it be on vacation or a weekend trip, due to the fact J.Crew Factory will be there awaiting my likely purchase of a cardigan and the handling of a shiny debit card.
Without driving 45 minutes to find your nearest J.Crew Outlet or holding out for that one vacation with that one giant outlet store, it will be in the palm of your computer illiterate hands just a few ENTER’s and SCROLL’s away!
Did Kmart get bitten by Vogue?
Well, not exactly but they did hire Alexi Lubomirski to photograph an ad campaign that will pop up in the pages of the beloved September Issue of Vogue .
“Kmart in Vogue… What has this world come to?”
It looks like fashion with an affordable price tag shouting: REALISM!
Okay designers and parents…“this” is getting out of hand!!!! If you don’t know what “this” is please let me explain….
It all started with Huggies Jean Diapers, okay so they’re cute you might say, but then we have designer Cynthia Rowley for Pampers by Target and we’re not done yet. Next we have Fendi, yep the one that’s mentioned in Sex and the City for high end designer lines, who will have a childrens line out for newborns on up to 12 years old.
Because naturally all newborns need designer labels!!!! Right?!
One part of living in reality is knowing there is life outside of Project Runway, Twitter, and The Situation’s fist pumping. However, sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start, what to do, or who to help. Unlike A-list celebs, jumping on a jet plane and heading to Africa isn’t all that realistic and isn’t exactly realistic for our budgets. So think of this as a place to start, a way to be fashion worthy, and a cause beyond just a “fashion statement”!

It’s as if a little slice of Heaven was just given to us “real people”!
High Five God!!
RTR (Rent the Runway) is my NEW AND FAVORITE obsession! Let me explain…
Remember when you wore Keds (elementary school)? Then remember that time you were too cool for Keds (high school)? Alright, well now they’re back and better than ever (2010)! So it’s officially “cool” again to show up in Keds shoes without pretending you’re wearing Skechers (so maybe I’m pulling from my own story). Even better than that designer Alice + Olivia thinks they’re pretty cool too. So pretty much that confirms the awesomeness that I always knew lied within Keds!
