Fashion Obsession - Camilla & Marc

I recently discovered this Australian designer and fell head over heels for their dresses in feminine shapes and details. With fall around the corner, I wish I had these sweater dresses and coats to keep me warm.

$10 Fridays! Umbrella-ella

I thought it was April shower's bring May flowers, not July downpours bring delayed pool days?  What's going on Atlanta weather?  I'm glad I'm keeping my makeup in place and hair perfectly placed with these ridiculously cute umbrellas available at Old Navy.  I've learned my lesson too, keep an umbrella in your car, your house, and of course your desk!  I can't begin to tell you how many times I've ran to my car from work and ended up soaked.  Not to mention the one time I went to grab my morning bagel and got caught in a torrential downpour.... thank you rain... my silk blouse is now see through... and we all know how much my work just LOVES my trendy looks.  Sheer blouse and bold bra?  It's in Vogue haven't you seen it?  No?  I guess that explains the Mom pants and Christmas sweaters you wear (This is no exaggeration, my old boss literally wore them for pleasure, not for tacky sweater day).

Fashion Obsession - Mara Hoffman

The more work I do for my blog in researching designers, the more I realize I've been living under a fashion rock. It's mostly due to the fact that I'm on a tight budget and am not a celebrity with a completely disposable income. So since I'm on a shopping moratorium anyway, I figure it doesn't hurt to look and dream a little. Mara Hoffman has a great sense of girlish style with easy flowy fabrics. Take a look at some of these Fall looks available here.

Oh leopard, how I love thee...

Can't get enough leopard these days!  With fall lines slowly coming out, I can tell you one thing I HAVE to have in my wardrobe to keep me warm this winter... a leopard coat!  I came across this leopard coat from by Malene Birger... priced at $895.00 I figured I should start bargain hunting ASAP.  I'll continue my hunt for the perfect affordable leopard coat, but for now, these choices will keep me satisfied with my search until more fall items appear in my favorite stores.

$10 Fridays! Say Hello to Bold Shades

Today's cheap pick is an absolute summer necessity.  Leopard sunglasses!  (Also available in floral but I'm a bit overly excited about the leopard)  I love the idea of using a print on sunglasses especially for someone like me who tends to go a little plain with the prints for the rest of the outfit.  I like to use prints to accessorize that way my clothing can go farther.  These shades are cool and trendy and will definitely be the talk of the party boat this weekend.  Buy them here for only $10!

The Big Reveal!

Officially did my presale with my favorite sales associate at Nordstrom today.  Loving the sweaters, flowy feminine blouses, and lots of boots!  Check out some of my purchases!

Stick a Feather In It

Urban Outfitters Hair Extension Clip (A lot less permanent!)

We've seen feathers on just about everything these days from purses, earrings, jewelry, tops you name it, feathers are BIG.  Can't find another place to put your favorite summer feather accents?  Throw it in your hair.  New feather hair extensions are quickly becoming all the rage in fashion.  Check out some of these celebrity do's with feather hair extensions.  Many salons are offering to put these in your hair just like any normal extension.  They last for about 3 months and you can wash, blow dry and even curl or straighten the feathers just like you do the rest of your hair.  It's crazy if you ask me.  I may soon be putting one of these in, but a 3 month committment is a long time.... I can't even keep the same top on for a whole day without changing my outfit to something completely different.  Indecisive? Yes... Do I care?  No.. my clothes thank me, they get great exposure this way.  So you aren't ready to commit either?  Check out these clips that you can interchange with every outfit in your wardrobe.  Urban Outfitters has a great selection of options from big chunky feathers, to subtle and delicate ones.

It's Time! Nordstrom Anniversary Catalog Has Arrived!

It's my version of the bible... I'll carry it around with me for several days to memorize the looks, the prices, the trends, all so I can be well prepared for the extreme sale shopping.  You can compare me to the extreme couponers, I'm pretty sure my obsession would get just as good of ratings as that show.

Now with the pre sale feature, I can get my hands on these things a little earlier than the rest of you folks... unless you have a card then you get access too.. I'm not THAT special.  Here's a sneak peak at the catalog and some of my favorite items.

This Fall we'll be seeing two trends that designers I guess couldn't choose between, menswear and feminine details.  Lots of boots with hardware, satchels galore, chunky vests and sweaters and capes.  Not to mention lots of pretty bows and blouses.   Skinny jeans, bootcut jeans, and jeggings too.  And purple!  Lots of purples and burgandys and plenty of camel and grey.  Some designers that have great discounted options are Trina Turk, Hudson Jeans, Fergie footwear, Steve Madden, Cole Haan,  Michael Kors, Tory Burch and so much more.  You'll be sure to find your favorite designer here and new ones to fall in love with.  What are your favorite looks for fall?
