Shoe Update

17 Apr

I want to give you a quick update on my Gladiator Sandals search. I decided on the MIA Ariel Sandal from DSW in the color black. I decided on them because I am really into the strappy look right now and I think they would be the most versatile. I am also excited that I was able to get a really good deal on them. DSW had them priced at $39.95. I had two DSW Rewards for $5.00 each and one for $10.00. I ended up paying $19.95 for them. What a great deal huh! I just ordered them tonight and they should be here in 4-7 days.

I also want to let you know that I think I found the perfect shoe from Kohl’s to go with 1920s Flapper style skirt that I told you I had  bought a few weeks ago. I think these shoes have a 1920s look to them with a modern twist. The color should match perfectly with pale pink color under the gray lace of the skirt. I also love the flower detail on the t-strap. I just ordered these too and got a Great deal on them also.  Kohl’s had the original price at $59.99, but they are on sale right now for $29.99. I got 30% off of that by using my Kohl’s card (I pay it off as-soon-as I use it). I ended up paying  just $20.99 for them. Yay!!! Can’t wait ’til they get here!

Gladiator Sandals

15 Apr

I love gladiator sandals and I’m so glad they’re still in fashion this season. I would probably still wear them even if they weren’t just because I love them so much. I love the trendy and edgy look they have.

My only problem is that a strap broke on the pair that I bought last season. This means I have an excuse to go shopping for a new pair. I have searched my regular places on the web and this is what I found for gladiator sandals.

Now all that is left is deciding which gladiator sandal I like best. Right now I’m leaning towards either the Mila Gladiator Thong from Kohl’s or the MIA Ariel Sandal from DSW. What do you think? Which pair of gladiator sandals should I choose? Leave a comment and let me know.

My Fashion Sense #4

Yesterday I shared with you that I like to wear trendy hats to work. Today I decided to continue with that theme and share some of my recent work outfits with hats.

 

This black hat is my staple hat. I wear it more than any others.

My Fashion Sense #3

2 Apr

Last Friday, hubby took me to a movie for my birthday. We watched “The Adjustment Bureau” starring Matt Damon. It was a really good movie and I recommend seeing it. It’s different from all the other movies out right now. Different is good.

My new fedora hat from Body Central finally came in the mail that day so I just had to wear it. This was my going out for my birthday outfit.

Lauren Conrad Fashion

1 Apr

I first learned about Lauren Conrad when she was the spokes person for Mark. That’s when I fell in love with her style of fashion. Her fashion is both trendy and feminine. I later found out that she had a starring role in MTV’s “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County” and its spin-off “The Hills”. I haven’t ever watched either one. She is no longer Marks spokes person, it is now Ashley Greene who plays Alice Cullen in the “Twilight Saga”. Now Lauren Conrad has her own fashion line available only at Kohl’s. This week I want to share some of Lauren Conrad Fashion pieces with you that I really like.

Lauren Conrad Slubbed Rosette Top-$36.00-Kohls

I like the fun feminine flowers on the shoulder of this top. I also like the slubbed, banded bottom, it gives this top a blousy feel.

Lauren Conrad Ruffle Chiffon Top-$34.00-Kohls

 I like the diagonal ruffles on this top. They give it a different, unique look.

Lauren Conrad Crochet Slubbed Vest-$40.00-Kohls

This vest has a dressy look to it and the back has a nice crochet detail. I like pieces with extra detail

Lauren Conrad Faux-Leather Motorcycle Jacket-$72.00-Kohls

This is fun, trendy looking jacket. It would work great for cool, spring days.

Lauren Conrad Pencil Jeans-$54.00-Kohls

 These pencil jeans will give you an updated look. They would look great with one of the above tops.

Lauren Conrad Lace Surplice Maxi Dress-$60.00-Kohls

 
Lauren Conrad Bow Crop Cardigan-$50.00-Kohls

 This Lace Maxi Dress and Bow Crop Cardigan would be a good spring look.

Lauren Conrad Milo Platform Sandal-$64.99-Kohls

I love the ankle straps and peep toe on this healed sandal. The neutral color would go good with any of the above Lauren Conrad fashion pieces.

You can find the complete line of Lauren Conrad Fashion at Kohl’s. I would recommend waiting to buy anything until Kohl’s is having one of their sales. They have them all the time. You could also sign up for the Kohl’s Charge card. They are always sending me coupons for and additional 10-30% off. I just pay it off as-soon-as I buy something.
