Lovely Lace

January 17, 2013 at 2:13 pm , by

In our February story, we answered all your burning fashion questions and one of them was about lace. Lucky for you fashionable folks, there are lots of lace options that are pretty and fun (not skanky and trashy, we promise!).

(For credit info on this pic, click here.)

Let’s take a peek at some other lacey numbers available for your shopping pleasure.

I can think of endless layering possibilities for this eyelet lace tank from American Eagle.

At Piperlime, you can pick up this navy blue (swoon!) Joie top on sale!

I have these lace capri pants from Ann Taylor in navy and I loooove them. The fit is amazing!

Love this lace collar tee from Madewell.

Lace ballet flats from Loft. Yes! And 60% off? Yes! Yes! Yes!

And who wouldn’t love a little trompe l’oeil dress from J. Crew? 

The lace top we featured in our November issue from Talbots is on sale for a song!

This lace skirt from Anthropologie is super pretty in that berry color.

It’s no surprise that Anthro has tons of lace. I love the idea of something that sweet and feminine on a comfy sweatshirt-style sweater.

Happy Shopping!

Shopping at J Crew’s Little Sister: Madewell

April 5, 2011 at 2:35 pm , by

If you’ve ever read my blog posts before, you’ve certainly noticed that I have a major crush on J Crew. In fact, many days, I look down at my outfit and it’s a little “J Crew-heavy.” Example: Today’s ensemble is jeans, a t-shirt, a cardigan, a necklace and a blazer — all from J Crew. (Sorry I can’t help it!) But I’m not here to write another ode to the Crew. This blog is about Madewell, J Crew’s little sister. And she’s all grown up!

Today we went to the Madewell fall ’11 preview and it looked fantastic. Sure, the jeans and tees that we’ve always loved are still there but now there are more polished pieces, like the beautiful long skirt pictured here.

But as you know, I do love a good sale so here are a few of my picks from that will make you feel like you’re getting a steal.

This fringy scarf is so fun, it’s almost like a necklace. And at $19.99, down from $58, how can you say no?

Legging jeans – down to 29.99 from $98.50 should be enough to make you say “Yes, please!” but I’ll also mention Madewell’s “Genius Jeans Guarantee: Free shipping and free returns on all jeans, all the time.” There’s nothing wrong with that.

A silk georgette floral print dress for $134? Amazing! Even better since it kinda looks like the D&G one that Emma Stone is wearing on the cover of Glamour. Except that one sells for  for $1,395!

So, for now, we’ll have to wait til fall for that gorgeous long skirt. But hopefully you can find something else fun on in the meantime. Happy shopping!
