Chic for Cheap

I'm totally in love with basic dresses this holiday season.When the dress is only 20 bucks, spend that extra money to make it unique by accessorizing!

PS... I bought the maroon dress with the bow and the high low dress in blue!

Holiday Sparkle and Shine on the Cheap!

I shop at the same stores over and over again (forever, H&M, Tj Maxx) and it always seems that they carry so many great sparkly dresses, then I pick them up and they are skin tight and would show a ton of booty. Not something I feel comfortable wearing, ever. I was killing time yesterday before a spa appointment in Northpark mall in Dallas, Tx... and I popped into Charlotte Russe which had sparkles in the window display that caught my eye and I figured, eh, I'll check it out! What I found were amazing party dresses for the holiday season that were FIT AND FLARE!!

In case we haven't met, I live in fit and flare. Everyday.

Pretty much all of these dresses were $29.99 but I just found out that they are having a buy one get one 50% off sale that started today... sorry for me, I was in there yesterday :(


They didn't have the dress I bought on the website... but here is my goober smiley pic from the dressing room. Yes, thank you, my holiday socks are awesome.

Floppy Hat: Splurge or Save

While shopping at Kate Spade last weekend at North Park Mall in Dallas, I found this FAB Kate Spade hat for $128. It looked so so cute, but I just couldn't bring myself to spend $100 on a hat, but now I can't stop thinking about going back and grabbing it. Which do you think is cuter, this Gap find for only $30 or should I just go with my gut and get the Kate Spade beauty?

Here is some inspiration on where/when/with what I should wear my new hat!

Gift Idea For Those You Are Pinterested In!

So many times I will pin a fabulous cocktail, chic outfit inspiration or a great quote to remember for the day. After I pin it, it goes into my little board never to be seen or heard from again. Occasionally, I'll go back and look at that pin again, but usually it just gets lost in the shuffle.

I generally find that if I have a problem, friends will have a similar problem. Everyone is always going to be proud of their pinterest boards, so why not show it off for them. Make your friends a book filled with all of their pinterest pins this Christmas! Clever, I know, you're welcome.

I would separate the book out by chapters, each chapter being their new board. If it is a cocktail you are placing in the book, be sure to include the recipe for them!

I will probably make one for myself first, ya know, just to test out the system and know that it will be cute! Here are the sites I recommend to use for photo books.

I would personally recommend because you can download a copy of your book for the ipad for just $1.99 on blurb! Have fun!

Weekend in the Rearview

I had a fabulous weekend with my partner in crime Magen! She came to Dallas for the first time to visit me. We had a fabulous (and by fabulous I mean uber-fabulous) brunch on Saturday at Bistro 31 in Highland Park with champagne and bloody mary's! The night before we pampered ourselves to blowouts at dry bar in Plano followed by dinner at Taco Diner, a Dallas staple. Then Saturday night we painted the town red in Uptown with dinner at Cru and drinks afterwards.

It was a fabulous weekend and much needed. I found some cute Christmas cards at Northpark mall, and you can see all of our purchases stacked up on my Kitchen Island. Successful is an understatement!

I also used Magen's visit as an excuse to finally properly stock my bar cart! Loving having this addition to my cozy little apartment!
