A Fashionable Earth Day

Though we all love new clothes, how about celebrate Earth Day by making a little change? Buy a resale dress, shop your closet, look at Pinterest to see how to style clothes you already own. Try Rent the Runway and rent a dress for an upcoming event. Our obsession with new and cheap fashion, if left unchecked, may ultimately lead to our planet’s demise. Buy used when you can. And buy new, if you really want to, but maybe think a little bit before you do.

Some Tucson stores to try: POSH Boutique; Buffalo Exchange, Green Monkey Boutique and Girlfriends Closet.

 

Target’s New Dressing Room is a Love Letter to Women

Thank you, Target, for the beautiful and kind redesign of your dressing rooms. Not only do they feature stylish wallpaper and modern chandeliers, they really give women an important gift: ONLY ONE MIRROR!  What’s more, the mirror is positioned in a corner of the dressing room, so it’s possible to hide from that accusatory and judgmental thing until the desired garment to try on is safely on your body.

I recently went to My Sister’s Closet in Scottsdale and the dressing room had a mirror on both sides!!! WHY on earth would you do that to women? Because I want to see what’s become of my back side after 46 years? Yeah, not so much!

Thank you Target, for allowing me to live in denial and happily so!

Cash Cow

Since the day Meghan Markle wore cow print heels on an official royal visit, this trend is on! Amal Clooney followed up with a cow print clutch, Kylie Jenner posed in a cow print maillot and now, cow print is an official thing. I’m finding a lot of items on Etsy, including vintage Just Cavalli heels, a bikini, leggings, workout tops and numerous clutches. And also a little search on Shopstyle shows some very cute blouse and skirt options. The Texas girl in me loves how fun this print is, especially in the midst of planning a cowgirl-themed party next week, I’ve become a little obsessed. Enjoy your own little online searches for this pastoral print!

In the Mood for Blue

A little blue dress inspiration. Cinderella had it right, blue is the most beautiful color on everyone of any age. If I was lying, Anna Wintour and Meghan Markle would not be featured wearing it so there….

Clutch Play

When you can’t find an evening gown to save your life (me), at least you can carry a cute clutch! This one from TheBrodieBride on Etsy is $68, can be personalized, has a mirror inside, fits a cell phone and makes me feel like Barbie. And it’s just one of several options you can choose, including different fonts and colors. Why should brides and bridesmaids have all the fun? One thing to note – the personalization is applied by adhesive, I’m pretty sure. There are definitely more expensive options in which names are created in the acrylic, but for as many times as you will carry a box clutch? Kind of makes more sense to go economical, in my opinion. Cute gift idea too right?

Logo Looks Familiar

I kept looking at the new Burberry logo and wondering why it rang so familiar. Oh yes! I finally figured it out…it looks just like one of Tory Burch’s logos. I wonder if anyone else agrees? Don’t they have research teams that can prevent this from happening?
