Current Elliott Boyfriend Jean=Good Investment

I so thought I would breeze over the boyfriend jean trend without having to engage. If they make even Katie Holmes look frump, I had no chance in them. But on a recent Europe trip, after about three days in the same skinny jeans, I needed some jean liberation. I was sick of a) wearing the same jeans and b) feeling like I was busting out of the skinnies with each night's creme brulee. So I went on the cheap and bought a nice comfy pair of generic boyfriend jeans...I mean, why pay the big ticket for a trend that will be over before it began. Here comes the testimonial: I've worn them at least four days out of each week since I got them. I pop them on to walk the dog, I wear them when i want to feel skinny (since you will drown in any good fitting pair) and I merch em up with heels sometimes and wear them at night. So by now, I have invested in the Current Elliott pair, they are now in frequent rotation, and I won't skimp on a good thing again. They are like my new wooby!

She'll wear this again! Dresses by Simple Silhouettes

How many times have bridesmaids said that? If they shriek with excitement when they see the dress and say 'I will totally wear this again!', they probably won't. (Big tip: shrieking is overacting which signifies lying). But seriously, I would wear one of these again if someone made me purchase it. Heck, I might even buy one with no wedding in mind and wear it to a cocktail party. Or maybe I'm just being lured in by the cute flags in the background. Marketing....got me again!

I love Makool, who loves you

I stumbled across this dress on etsy.com, and after pulling on the thread, found my way to this lovely site, makoollovesyou.com, with very original and interesting pieces. In tough money times, I try to only buy pieces that are totally unique and different. Not necessarily of the current trend, but more of a timeless piece that you will treasure. I also think that wearing something unique just makes me feel better about myself...a reminder that I am also unique and different and even if I don't have money, I have that!

OBSESSED-Sarah Seven

Not only is Sarah's work totally dreamy, but it's made to order, meaning it will fit like a glove. But wait, there's more! She donates 5% of sales to charity...which should be the new norm these days.
