Major VS Panties Deal for Valentine’s Day

Major VS Panties Deal for Valentine’s Day

I may live in a tiny studio apartment with negative storage space, but a whole heck of a lot of it involves undies. If you are planning on loving yourself tomorrow — whether or not someone else is as well — what a good excuse to treat yourself to a pretty awesome sale! Right now Victoria’s Secret is offering a free pair of panties with a bra purchase. (i.e. it’s sort of like free, you really have no excuse). Use code CUPID to get a free pair of Lace-trim Cheeky Panties, or code CHEEKSTER for a free pair of Lace-trim Mini Cheekster PINK panties ($10) with any bra purchase. Plus code SHIPBRA gets you free shipping, but only through Valentine’s Day 2014! And the ones pictured above? I want them. All of...

Giveaway: Win a $50 Gift Card to The Limited!

Y’all, I’m all about birthdays, even if they aren’t mine. And so I’m excited that The Limited is turning 50 and in celebration of its Golden Anniversary, the brand is launching a multi-faceted campaign focused on helping women succeed. This involves sorts of celebrations including a special initiative to support Dress for Success — an organization I hugely believe in that  offers professional apparel, support and career development tools to women who are entering or re-entering the work force. To raise funds for this amazing organization, The Limited is inviting women to share their success stories/life lessons (both personal and professional) online at www.thelimited.com/50th.

Planning Black Friday? Here’s some great deals to look forward to!

Planning Black Friday? Here’s some great deals to look forward to!

Myself, I’m not a big Black Friday shopper — brick and mortar, that is. I’m all about the online bargain, and will likely spend all of Friday in my robe, eating my mom’s leftover turkey. But once upon a time, we were. We’d high tail it to the Green Acres (Valley Stream, Long Island, for you non NYCers), at 6 am, thermos of coffee in toe, and shop-fight our finest. But then we got jaded, and tired, and, well, the Internet was here to pick up the pieces. Shopping online or off can be an Olympic sport — if you have a credit card that offers reward points, you can get something back for all the purchases you make during the holiday season. This is another great way of saving money while you shop! Ultimate gift with purchase, I...

Making the most of your wardrobe

Making the most of your wardrobe

I’ve been in Nashville all this week and I’m having an AMAZING time — I can’t even begin to share how great everything has been. But one think that hasn’t been so great? My packing. I am disheartened to share this, because I’ve written in the past sharing tips on how to streamline and make the most out of less when preparing for a trip. Throw in a series of events, activities, play dates, and plain old fun and I have no idea what I was thinking because at this point in my trip (when it’s sadly winding to a close) I have six dresses left, and yet nothing appropriate to wear tomorrow. It’s hard. And the truth is that our favorite dresses (or other fashion pieces) can absolutely be adapted in several ways. I wish I had...

Giveaway: $50 Kohl’s Gift Card!

Giveaway: $50 Kohl’s Gift Card!

I’m one of those girls that get very set in my ways — I find something I like that’s convenient, and I’ll do it all the time, and not be open to any substitutions. (Actually, the same could be said for my choice in cocktails. And coffee blends. And men.) And, I feel that way, quite often, about the variety Kohl’s  affords me – there’s very few places I can drop by and get lingerie, k-cups, and new sheets all in the same spot — and all at a pretty bargain price. The store is celebrating their 50 years  anniversary and is opening 12 new stores this fall. To celebrate, they asked me to share one of my savings stories – and then award one of you a $50 gift card to do the same! The grand opening sale is winding down...

In honor of today’s Cancun shopping foray: Flea market survival tips!

In honor of today’s Cancun shopping foray: Flea market survival tips!

Greetings from sunny Cancun! I’m not getting to spend nearly enough time online this week (I’d complain, but look where I AM spending my time…) – but I needed to share that this morning’s itinerary involves checking out the local flea markets! I recently wrote a StyleUnited article on the best ways to survive a trip to the flea market – absolutely check it out if you get a chance! Shopping in a resort area though is a bit different – especially in a place like Cancun. This is not going to be my first time at the flea markets of Cancun – a picture from my most recent visit, last summer, is at left. (Not that beautiful beach – that’s the view from my suite at Live Aqua Cancun!) Truth is, when one arrives in...

Style Bargain: Calvin Klein Powerstretch Skinny Crop Jeans

Style Bargain: Calvin Klein Powerstretch Skinny Crop Jeans

I’m having surgery in a few days, and anticipating a pretty lame next few weeks as I recover — meaning I’m making the most of the few remaining days of freedom I have. I’ve been calling these days “freedom fest” – but all that really means is the decision to live large, bright and festive in every way possible – and lo and behold, these bright pink cropped denim from Calvin Klein are on sale and fell right into my plan. The Powerstretch Skinny Jeans are destined to be my summer staple- they fit great, and are super versatile (making them very travel-friendly) – but if pink is not your color (shudder),  they are offered in a range of colors, from ultra blue to jade green, bright rose to sunshine yellow....
