Support your Local Yocals

With Mother's Day approaching, I have begun the search to send out a small trinket that shows our mums how much we appreciate them. While signing into my Etsy acct., I noticed these beautifully decorated truffles and they are from Fairlawn, Ohio.
Bees Knees Creative is their name and making me drool is their game! Check them out on Etsy.com

New Town, New Bags!

My friend, Mary Gillis(my new photographer) and I went into the city yesterday to photograph my new line of handbags. Of course, graffiti had to be in the photo. Those who know me, know I love the city! I believe this photo captures the essence of my character and line.

Cool-laborations II!

I noticed the other day one of my blogger friends mentioned they bought a shirt by Miley Cyrus at Walmart. To the average reader this could be a major turn off -seeing Miley Cyrus and woman's wear together. What my clever friend forgot to mention was that Miley's name is not the only one on this label. Max Azria is top designer on this collaboration. You know... the BCBG designer! The line at Walmart is skewed for a younger crowd, but if you want a cute t-shirt or tank on the cheap- take a look and you might be pleasantly surprised.

Another Walmart collaboration that many aren't aware of is with Norma Kamali. In the 80's she was well known for her active line and has collaborated in the past with Everest performance wear and Speigel. Currently she has a line on ebay, Walmart and her boutiques. I haven't bought anything of hers yet, but at the bargain basement prices- I am foolish not to. Still regretting a menswear vest of hers @ Walmart that I let pass me by. It fit like a dream and for $16- I should have nabbed it. Here are some great items that I would suggest and do check out her swimwear. Oh, did I mention that everything is under $30. Incredible!

Some of you have complained that the neutrals- greys, blacks and whites are holding your closet hostage and would like color to infiltrate the regime.
Today, while heading into the city to see the coif master- I stopped by H&M to have a looksy at the new collaboration with Sonia Rykiel.
Sonia Rykiel is infamous for her knitwear in the 70's, which she has now brought to H&M- and brought she has! The bright pinks, oranges and yellows take me back to the era of florescents. She has intermingled them with black to keep them neutral-closet-friendly. Everything is knitwear, right down to the handbags, and so well made! Everything is reasonally priced from $25- $60. What?! Crazy, right?
In the past, I have been extremely excited about big name collaborations with Target, such as, Anna Sui (crap!) and my beloved- Alexander McQueen (crap!). As you can see, I'm not quick to endorse just any collaboration. This is why I waited to see Rykiel's collection in person, before giving the green light.
I have to say- I loved all of it! I bought two pieces. They gave me a special bright pink bag with Sonia Rykiel's name and symbol on the side. You could have got me to buy anything- if I knew that bag was coming with it. Awesome!
Here is the link to see the entire collection...
As I mentioned about Target and collaborations, they have two coming out this Spring. Jean Paul Gaultier(released March 7th) and Zac Pozen(April 25th). Two very different designers...but again, I will have to see what the quality of fabric is like, before I would tell anyone to purchase something. Look out Target...it looks like H&M knows how to do collaborations right!

And this little piggy went wee, wee, wee all the way to DSW!

My hubby and I were casually shopping and decided to step into the local DSW. You know....the shoe Mecca! We went in to get running shoes, but that is not all I came away with...I discovered the most amazing, sexy gladiator heel around for $70 and another for just over $100. You might be thinking..Budgetista! These aren't so budget friendly! But once you get a gander of these bad boys, you might start saving your milk money. My fashion elitist friend Heather might even wear these! Love ya!

The first pair are definitely for the working gal. I mean the 9 to 5 type, not the red-light district! They are buttery, sexy, edgy and sophisticated all in the same shoe!
Grrrrrr! Get um' girl!

The second pair are for people more like myself that have a little more edge to their style and would go perfect with that look-alike Alexander Wang outfit!

These shoes are just a little over $100, which is what I will be telling my husband. I absolutely have nothing to wear with all my pairs of harem pants and jumpsuits!

Another fabulous thing is at DSW.com, if you spend over $35 they will ground ship your shoes for free! If you enter the code SHPFEB by the end of February, they will next day your shoes free!
Awwwe... the joys of shopping!
