in LoVE

I am love love loving this stationary company I just came across, Smudge Ink. Everything they have is sooo colorful and pretty! I want it all! They also have some really great Christmas cards. I usually stick to the $2.99 packages of cards I find at TJ Maxx or Marshalls, so these cards are a little out of my normal price range... could make a great gift though!

I had been looking forward to Anna Sui's new Gossip Girl line for Target since it was announced... I guess I should have checked it out online yesterday (the first day the pieces went on sale), because the 2 dresses I had my eye on are already OUT OF STOCK!?!? (tear) SOOO disappointed... hopefully they will have more stock soon.. check it out for yourself: gossip girl.

Gossip Girl returns tonight, at least we have that to look forward to!

Fall is in the air

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love the way the air feels, the leaves, and all the different colors fall brings. Fall also means, return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte at starbucks. WAHOOOO

FINALLY bargain time!

OMG I am so behind! I have been sooo busy the last couple of weeks- no time for bargains! Well this is a great great story to start back up again.

Last Christmas my mom bought me a tote bag from J Crew. Great bag for work, plenty of room of all my "stuff" ie, shoes, wallet, ipod, planner, make up case, card case, etc... everything for train commuting lifestyle. Loved the bag. Well about a month ago the bag broke :( One of the straps ripped on my way to work. Very inconvenient! SO I decided to write a letter to J Crew and send the bag back in hopes it could be repaired.....

What shows up in my mail box on Friday, a $42 gift card to J Crew!! And funny, my mom only spent $9 on the bag! Love you JCREW. Just in time for the extra 20% all sale items!!

Happy Birthday Coco!

Today marks the birthday of one of the most influential designers, Coco Chanel.
Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel (19 August 1883 – 10 January 1971) was a pioneering French fashion designer whose modernist philosophy, menswear-inspired fashions, and pursuit of expensive simplicity made her an important figure in 20th-century fashion. Her extraordinary influence on haute couture was such that she was the only person in the field to be named on TIME Magazine's 100 most influential people of the 20th century. - Wikipedia

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same.” - Coco Chanel
