Don't you wish there was an app for that?

Warning: this is long...there seem to be new apps out everyday that are catching my attention.

I want an app that tells me what mag I'm subscribed to and when those subscriptions end...that way I don't get 2 issues of one mag and know when it's time to sign up again...

Also, wish I knew of a great resource for building apps...I get so many great fashion app ideas...wish I could just develop and share them.

Until are some great apps I've been using recently:

-New Zara iPad app

-The All New AE App + 20% Off

-App: thankfulfor journal
-App: Locavore app/find local farmers markets

-New lucky shopping app

-From bof:
Upcoming Zappos iPad App Mimics a Fashion Magazine (All Things Digital)
“The new black this fall: Retailers producing content alongside their products, like an online version of a glossy fashion magazine. Zappos expects to launch its first attempt at recreating the catalog experience on the iPad in early December, just in time for the holidays… Instead of being generally available in iTunes, the Zappos app will be found on Apple’s Newsstand, which organizes magazine and newspaper subscriptions for those who use iOS 5. It will be free; a new edition will appear monthly.”

-Steve madden iPad app

-Zappos Founder Launches New Site,
Zappos Founder Launches New Site,
New online platform and mobile app is a loyalty program connecting consumers and brands by rewarding people for what’s in their closet

-Shopkick, CW Network Team Up
Users will be able to turn on the app while watching any show on the CW network and get their “kicks” during commercial breaks.

The perfect wedge pump

This wedge pump has the comfy look of a "wedge", but has a sexy edge that has caught my eye over and over with the sleek look that the shoe takes on by combining wedge & pump...I keep seeing this style everywhere and I'm trying to decide which I like the most...ok, I know the J. Crew is my fave, but it's also the most expensive:)  So, we shall see where I meet in the middle:)

Twilight Style & more...

The main thing that caught my attention fashion wise in Breaking Dawn Part 1 was the luggage that Bell carried on her honeymoon.  I found out it was by Bric's and it was all over.  It's on my list for future purchases:)
I'm also looking into who Bell's wedding shoe was by and a few of the attendees at the wedding had great dresses I have to look into.  Once I find out who they are all by, I will share:)  Have you seen the movie?  What fashions stood out to you?

Bric's luggage a la Twilight

Bric s hat, $360

Two jeans I will be checking out on Monday at the Gap

I'm not sure how I missed these styles, but my mom had a pair of high waist cropped 1969 jeans while I was visiting in Portland for Thanksgiving. I sadly wasn't able to make it into the store, but did my research online and found there are two styles I need to try!!:). My mom said she paid less than what's online, so I'm hoping I get lucky when I go in on Monday...we shall see:)

Trend alert: Sweaters with balls

Via Man Repeller's instagram-Not sure who her sweater is by...
I keep seeing this sweater EVERYWHERE!  First, I saw a version of this sweater on the owner of Avenue Boutique in Tucson, AZ where I bought my James Jeans...I just thought it was cute and maybe vintage and went on my way.  Then, I found a similar style on Old Navy and got excited...and then, spotted another version of the style by Juicy Couture...Finally, I was searching through my past pics on my phone and came across a copy of what the Man Repeller had shared on her instagram and felt the need to share this sweater with everyone:)  I'm planning on getting the Old Navy version while in Portland to get the non-taxed version and maybe even a discount:)  We shall see.  I will also share how I style it...I already have ideas:)

Old Navy version, $40 (also comes in a variety of colors...I want this color or gray.)

By Juicy Couture for $178, I also like it in the rose color:)

Looking back...inspiration from the fall 2011 J. Crew show

They never stop inspiring's good I looked back:)
I love how they styled:
-a blazer under a puffy vest...great layering.
-a laid back way to wear a cape.
-love the color combo of burgundy (which is on the trend radar right now) and mint (which I'm loving!).

Talbots, I'm in love...

I just spotted the spring 2012 line for Talbots on and I'm in love! They had stripes, paisleys (my favorite), and I loved the color combos of pink & orange and blue & green.
I can't wait to see the line in person. Tres chic! Great styling inspiration!

Weekend DIY Inspiration

Hope these images bring as much inspiration to you as they do me!  Happy DIYing!

Probably from another street style blog.  Loving the dramatic, really LONG tassel earrings:)

Just more fun grommet add ons for a basic white top. They kept the detail going down the button front.

This is probably from a street style blog...I think it would be fun to wrap a fabric around your waist to add some fun to a basic shift.  There is a black dress kind of like this at H&M now for $15 I think.  (I'm remember the dress from a Nate Berkus show I recently watched:)

I think this shot is from Sincerely, Jules...I think it's fun to add "ankle candy" to your strappy sandals:)

Love what they did with the All Stars here!  I would so add a pendant to my to spruce them up:)
*I'm not sure where all of these shots are from...but, I had to share what I had in my phone since I was uploading everything:)

tracee ellis ross on fashion -

I agree with everything Tracee says about fashion and style here! Such an inspiration!

On my radar: Bow Flats

The inspiration:
I really want the J. Crew flats, but at $228, I can't afford to drop that on one pair of matter how cute they are...
Bargain buys:

ASOS (ASOS LEVAN Double Bow Flat Point Ballerina) for only $45!

ASOS (LEVAN Double Bow Flat Point Ballerina) for only $26!  Same style, but had to share because they are on sale:)
Loving the leopard print on these!  From Hot Topic! Only $22!!

Get a pointy flat like Gaps on sale for $27.  Then, add bow shoe clips by brands like Absolutely Audrey that are $19.

Get yourself glowing with a new lotion by GOLD BOND Ultimate

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Triad Retail Media for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


I'm always a huge supporter of the body glow, that look like you've got bronzer and oil but all in one.  Anytime I hear about a brand that has something new that promotes glow I'm ready to try.  I just heard about this brand and had to share my find with all of my fashionalities.   Gold Bond has a new brand called Gold Bond Ultimate that offers a new lotion, Sheer Ribbons Pearl Radiance.  Sheer Ribbons Pearl Radiance adds subtle luminosity and radiance which I think can be worn both day and night.  I'm also addicted to all things rose so I'm excited about the fresh scent of rosewood that this lotion has too.  I feel like rose is a light fragrance that can be paired with any fragrance you have on and can be worn alone for something sweet.  I found the lotion on for less than $8 and now, you can use a $1 off coupon to make this deal even better!  There are a ton of other great new products to check out that are perfect for everyone so check those out on  Get glowing now for winter weather and make every look more complete!

My must-have for this fall: The fedora, inspired by the Kardashian sister's

Last year, I was ADDICTED to Kourtney Kardashian's Gucci hat on Kourtney and Kim take New York.  I had looked all over and couldn't find anything that really fit the look for me...but, this year that's all changed!  There are so many cute options.  Plus, I spotted another cute fedora that Kim wore this year that I liked and saw on Fashion Police.  These can be worn with everything and are perfect for fall weather!  I know that their stylists, Monica Rose must have helped them with these, I'm still watching her blog for updates on where Kim's hat is from...but, until then...these are all "inspired by" finds.  Where are you shopping for yours?  What are you rocking your hats with this fall?

Just so chic!
Here are Kourtney hat options (high/low):

Catarzi for Asos, $34.14, I LOVE the styling here!  Great inspiration for how to rock any of these hats!

By Malene Birger, Houetta Fedora $140.
Black Poppy, $19.50

Only $14.95 at Target!  How can you say no?

Nine West, $21.99

I'm not loving the rest of Kim's look (excluding the Hermes bag of course:)  I love how the bands make a statement on these hats!

Rag & Bone, $150 I LOVE the color!

Club Monaco, $109, this just screams boho to me!
