A beautiful CHOiES skirt….on Cortneybre…

I’ve been quite the Chic Wish fan lately but decided to branch out a little and try some new shopping sites.  One of these sites is CHOiES, which is very similar to Chic Wish and just as fab.  My first purchase from CHOiES was a somewhat simple and safe one.  I decided on this beautiful black midi skirt you see below.

Shirt: Crown & Ivy
Skirt: Choies

Sunnies: Franco Sarto

I wasn’t sure if the quality and fit would compare to Chic Wish so I played it safe with this purchase.  Let me just say I was happily surprised and quite pleased with the purchase!  

The dress fit perfectly, the fabric was beautiful and the cut was perfect!  And…I do think CHOiES is a little cheaper than Chic Wish also!  Who doesn’t LOVE that!?  

I’m also trying a few new sites and will let you know how I fare with those also!  I’ve ordered a couple of items from Sheinside so stay tuned for future posts and reviews!  The pieces I’ve ordered are very unique and I can’t wait to style them!

For now, Chic Wish and CHOiES have served me well and I’ve many beautiful pieces to wear!  I also have a cool new Chic Wish dress to feature too…I hope to have it posted soon!  

Hope you’re having a great week!

Kate Spade Saturday on SALE…check out my fave piece on Cortneybre…

OMG…what can I say…these past few weeks have been a whirlwind!  I’ve missed you guys, my wonderful readers!  

Now..on to fashion!

First Kate Spade Saturday is running a tremendous sale!  As in 50% off their sale items sale!

I’ve heard rumors that Kate Spade’s Saturday brand is folding, along with Jack Spade.  How very sad!  

I will admit that I prefer Kate Spade NY to its younger sister, Saturday, however I do think Saturday has a place in the fashion market.  I’ll be sad to see it go.  

That being said, I took advantage of that sale I just mentioned and purchased this tres cute pink skirt!

Jacket: Banana Republic     Shirt: Crown and Ivy

Cute right!?  Love the skirt, great fit and color…short and sassy!  

This is a winter to summer piece also.  The skirt easily pairs with tights or without!  

I LOVE wearing a simple ribbon as a necklace.  It serves as the perfect accent without being too flashy!

Check out Kate Spade Saturday’s sale!  I bet you find something you love!

A Fashion Mid-Year Crisis…

I think I’m having a fashion mid-year crisis.  Or is it a mid-year fashion crisis.  Or is it even a crisis at all?

I didn’t post last week and it’s due to my inability to ground myself – fashion-wise.  I’m all over the place!  

Pinks and polyester-silk blends one day and understated black dresses with large hoop earrings the next. 

I’ve been wearing a lot of stripes lately too. Does that mean I want to change my own, figuratively speaking? 

Blame it on the weather or the season.  Or the simple fact that I can wear fleece lined black tights every day and be very, very happy (and warm). 

I do think it’s more than just the weather or the need for warmth.  I’ve been feeling the need to reinvent myself and to adopt a new look.  

I do like to dress on trend and find myself caught up in the whirlwind of ever-changing fashion “what’s hot now” fads.  

While I’m not giving that up, I’m thinking about evolving from a world of bows, pinks, polka dots and midi-skirts to one filled with bold colors and sleek lines.   I’m thinking of cutting my hair.   Images of a chic, Vidal Sassoon-esque (circa 1960) bob flash before my eyes.  No more buns or pony tails.  Gone are the days of the good girl.  Hello modern art maven! 

I might take it a step further and lean towards a more gender neutral look.  Tailored black suits with Italian made loafers and just the right bold bag.  Ok…maybe some ruffles. 

Who knows where I’ll land.  I do still love my polka dots, midi-skirts and cardigans.  Perhaps, until I figure out just who I’m becoming, I’ll just take it day by day.  For now…stripes are the answer.  

Have a great week!  xx…
