Finding a great pair of sunglasses that also look good on you is sometimes a tough task, especially if you’re looking for a designer name. The price tags associated with the top brand names will usually run you a couple hundred dollars (you’ll be looking at even more if you need prescription lenses). However there is an alternative out there for shoppers looking for brand name, great looking sunglasses, without the designer price.
In the world of fast fashion, our wardrobes are often teeming with clothes we wear once or twice, and then they never see the light of day again. Either we forget about them, or a new trend has arrived which we are lusting after – so last season’s clothes get relegated to the back of the wardrobe.
A lot of us recycle by donating our old clothing to charities which is great if you are definitely never going to wear the clothes again. However, why not update your old clothes instead of getting rid of them? Not only will you be recycling, you will be saving money which is always a welcome bonus. Here are some tips to help you create some new looks from your old t-shirts.
We love Target because it’s fashionable, affordable, and we can get everything we need in one place. Speaking of fashion, Target has collaborated with many high-end designers in the past including Jason Wu, Missoni, Zac Posen, Anna Sui, Thakoon, Erin Fetherston, Luella Bartley, Proenza Schouler and Jonathan Saunders.
More recently Target has collaborated with five specialty boutiques across the country including The Webster of Miami, Privet House of Warren, Connecticut, Polka Dog Bakery of Boston, the Cos Bar of Aspen, and The Candy Store of San Francisco. First, Target offered designer looks for less, then allowed us access to high-end specialty stores. So what could possibly be next for the bullseye?
If you’re a woman, the need for shopping is never enough. Though you may have way too many clothes that you actually need there is always this craving for more! Perhaps for a new skirt that’s in fashion or a designer wear that has caught your eye in a store display.
Although it is easier said than done to cut short your shopping spree it is not always possible. You will need to go out to attend social functions or parties in order to fulfill your social responsibility and be a part of the crowd. You can afford to stop shopping altogether and stay at home in order to save.
So it would be better to frame out certain rules that can help you save money on shopping instead of putting an end to it altogether. Apart from the fact that you need to control your shopping instinct for everyday wear, here are some frugal tips to help you save on designer wear meant for special occasions.
I recently got a new smart phone that I’m crazy about (an Android HTC Incredible 4G LTE) but it is so hard to find phone accessories (i.e. creative phone cases) for it! However, I’m content with the few cases that I found on Amazon simply because I love the cell phone so much.
My cases are in two of my favorite colors: blue and pink sparkles. Oh, what I wouldn’t give for a fun chevron case with the initials of my name on it! I won’t give up my search.
With today’s modern designs you have endless possibilities when it comes to accessories (for most phone designs). There are cases, phone charms, fun earphone buds, car mounts, and even more accessories to utilize and discover. Since I’m limited with only a few cases for my phone (even though there are many other accessories), I thought I would dream with you via this post and show you some of the awesome accessories that you can use with and on your phone!
Summer is the time of the year when we can really let loose with our fashion. In winter we have to contend with keeping ourselves warm and in spring we have to keep ourselves dry, choosing big, cumbersome coats and jumpers. The summer is a different story.
Men and women alike have no major concerns other than picking the most stylish clothes they can and keeping up to date with the hottest trends. The only problem, however, could be making sure that your wallet can afford all these great new styles you have seen. It takes a shrew shopper to update their wardrobe without breaking the bank but it can be done! Here are a few tips on how to look stylish this summer without bankrupting yourself:

Athletes, performers, and fans celebrated the end of the 2012 Olympics last night during the Closing Ceremonies, which were held in the same London, England stadium that saw many of the 26 Olympic sports take place.

Yesterday I took some time to go shopping and I couldn’t believe that fall time fashion has already arrived and is officially in the shops! I always feel so odd during the middle of summer time surrounded by fall fashion, especially when it is 100 degrees outside, but I have to admit I’m excited for fall time to arrive! With all of the beige colors and maxi skirts, I actually bought a few items myself. Check it out:
Lately I’ve really been into rompers. Even though I’m considered short, well, at least by my standards (I’m 5’5″), I still love to wear a comfy romper. It doesn’t matter where I wear my romper – whether it’s at the beach, lounging around at home, or lounging on an outside chair like this lovely model is doing in the picture to the left, a romper is a versatile piece of clothing that you definitely should own.
Rompers feel comfy because they usually are made out of cotton or terry cloth, both which are very soft and relaxing materials. But the good news is that a romper also can be dressed up with a pair of pumps for some added height and style. So don’t be afraid to hit the town while wearing a romper and sporting a new pair of sparkly pumps. Rompers are great for either dressing up or dressing down – let your mood fuel and create a fun outfit!
Here are some rompers that have caught my eye:
