this will be our little secret

I love a good bargain.  To me, there is nothing like the thrill of finding something you have been desiring from afar at a discount.  This is especially fun when you purchase an item that is this season’s merchandise at half the cost.  Take a peek into my closet and I will show you some of my most recent bargains.

Look at these peepers!  Prada white frames with gold and light brown gradient lens.  These are selling retail for $310.00 and I bought them for $103.99 (with an extra 20 per cent off coupon) at my local Loehmann’s store.    So holler!!!  This little gem is perfect for spring and summertime.  Put away your black darth vader shades and wear these to lighten up in every sense of the word.  Plus, you can channel your inner 1960’s diva and strut your stuff this summer when you prance about town.  I have owned these for a week and I have received about ten compliments on my Fun and Fabulous Find.

Now, during my same shopping excursion, I also happened upon this wardrobe essential:

Don’t stop believing..hold onto that feeling…Yes, that is right.  I scored this Vintage Wash Boxy Dolman  Journey T-shirt  in black by Chaser for $21.59 with my 20 percent off coupon.  This currently is selling online at designer stores for $62.00!

Now, don’t be sad if you don’t have a Loehmann’s store in your city.  You can shop online and be a part of the fun at www.loehmanns.com  Check out these cute shorts I found on their website:

Don’t these look comfy and easy to wear?  Plus the price is just right at $29.99!  Denim running shorts by Blank Jeans. I can picture myself wearing them with my rockin’ t-shirt and sunglasses.

So, go grab your wallet and get a shopping!  Let me know if you find something you want to share.  I am always waiting to hear from you!


It’s spring…feeling groovy?

Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin’ groovy.
Hello lamppost,
What cha knowing?
I’ve come to watch your flowers growing.
Ain’t cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in’ doo-doo,
Feelin’ groovy.Got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I’m dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.

So, let’s celebrate the count down to 4/25 by featuring some daily Fun and Fabulous Finds that inspire your creativity and make your heart sing.  (In the words of David Cassidy…C’mon Get Happy!)

This is one of my favorite things:

The most fabulous flower of all time-the peony

I would wear this, but not be posing like this! Let's keep going....

Lounging away at the Beverly Hills Hotel pool circa 1977

Fly away with me and think about what inspires you…c’mon get happy! I would love to hear your thoughts.


I am a Taurus. What is your decor and fashion sign?

I have thought a lot about how ones fashion sense tends to translate to the decor in their home. I started to analyze this after having a conversation with my good friend, Kari, on her wardrobe choices for an upcoming vacation. After we decided on her hip and happening outfit, we began talking about a chair she has always dreamed of purchasing for her house.  I hung up the phone and it hit me that Kari’s fabulous fashion sense has the same vibe as her home’s rockin’ decor. (Stay tuned, because her home will be featured in an upcoming post)!  My point for you to ponder today:  If what you choose to wear is an outside reflection of how others view you, then shouldn’t the decor in your home also be a bit of a window to your soul?
I love the carefree elements of fashion from the 60’s and early 70’s.  I am naturally drawn to that funky vibe in my clothes and I tend to incorporate some of that style into my home.

Here are a pair of boots I covet and want to purchase:

I bet many of you can appreciate this fun and fabulous find, but wouldn’t wear them! (If you would then I would love to hear from you, because we are “soul sisters”). Here is how I would traipse around the city in the above beauties:  I would wear them with shorts on a crispy fall afternoon while running errands, I would put them on after yoga when grabbing coffee, or I would pair them with a funky skirt and white t-shirt while having dinner and a cocktail with friends.   Anyone who knows me would agree that these furry finds fit my personality to a T and I would wear them all the time!

But, as you noticed in my last post I have been dying for this piece of furniture in my family room:

So…you get where I am going with this….my fashion sense and my decor choices tend to go hand in hand!

Here is the dress my friend Kari purchased for her trip (She is an Aries):

Kari's fabulous find from Rag and Bone

Now here is the piece of furniture Kari wants to buy for her house:

Womb chair and ottoman that Kari loves

Debra is another friend who is a good example of my theory.  Below is a clothing line she likes to wear. (She is a Libra):

Debra wears tops by Roberta Roller Rabbit and it is so her style

This Serena and Lily bar cart would fit in fabulously with Debra's decor and summertime soirees!

I would love to hear if you agree that fashion and decor follow one another.  Take a chance…Let the world see who you really are with your sense of style and home furnishings! Thanks to all my friends and readers for the constant inspiration.
