Cute Cactus

How cute are these cactus masks? Courtesy of the new K-beauty trend that’s sweeping the nation, you can find these sheet masks at Urban Outfitters for $3 each! The writer side of me, though, wants to correct the grammar to “I’m A Cactus!”

Zulily Good for Sulking

It’s taken me two days to get over the debacle that was UA’s first football game! So disappointing for us long-suffering, non-Rose Bowl-going Wildcat fans.

But, online shopping—or endlessly browsing and putting things in my cart and then never buying them–has proven to be a perfect distraction.

Zulily.com has been my kryptonite of late. It’s a funky, addictive shopping destination that prides itself on offering “something special every day.” Named the fifth most innovative retail company by Fast Company magazine in 2015, Zulily continues to be that successful site that no one knows about. It offers limited time sales and then, places a large order from the company, shipping you items about 15-20 days after you order them–a bit longer to wait. But worth it!

And while there are some random choices on the site, a little post-football, depressive browsing can unearth some unique dresses, tops, faux fur jackets, even some designer goods. Zulily is also a great way to find new, emerging labels you haven’t heard of or can find anywhere near T-town.

Reboot Your Wardrobe

What’s better than wearing boots? Wearing ones with your initials stitched on them. You can personalize long boots, ankle boots and even rain boots on EtsyΒ for unique birthday, holiday or just-because gifts. Or even just for yourself.

While many of the Etsy options are definitely not real leather, they can be a stylish alternative to add to your cowgirl, rattlesnake-dodging closet.

And in the corral of life, everyone will know which boots are yours…

MSK Masters the Statement Sleeve

A little-known brand named MSK has a stylish selection of dresses that caters to the cold-shoulder trend–a fashion statement popular with us 40-and-overs–because as one comedian so perfectly puts it, “Here’s a part of my body I’m confident about!”

What makes many MSK dresses so beautiful are the intricate sleeve designs, weaving metallic thread or rhinestones within the long sleeve, and thus exposing only parts of the arm, which isn’t everyone’s favorite thing to showcase. While there’s not a lot to discover about the company online, MSK dresses can be found at Macy’s, Amazon, Stein Mart and sometimes, Nordstrom Rack.

Find Your Fendi!

On the heels of the Gucci grab by Millennials, the Italian label Fendi is getting its groove back. Thanks to stars like JLo, Bella Hadid and a small family you may have heard of called the Kardashians, Fendi is definitely popular again. Not bad for a label approaching 100 years. Even InStyle magazine just recently ran an article about its newfound appeal, what with bold logos being coveted again.

Now, here’s where to find Fendi in Tucson – Posh Boutique. The store has a handful of Fendi bags right now in good condition and meeting that young demand for lots of “Fs.” So, go find yours before they are gone!
