Off To Pennsylvania...

Hello everyone! I just wanted to drop a quick note that I'm heading to Pennsylvania this morning (through Saturday) with my husband, in-laws, and dog to visit my parents for a late Christmas and New Year's celebration. Posting will be very light for the rest of the week...but we will be back to our regular posting next week.

I hope everyone has a great New Year's Eve!!!

Today we're featuring a look sent in to us by Julie who is from Ottowa, Canada. This sexy preppy look is probably better suited for warmer weather...but with the weather acting as crazy as it has been maybe warm days are just around the corner.

Right now you can get this great gift set for only $22 at Sephora (a $48 value).


Pick of the Day

Looks like ruffles are here to stay! This trend doesn't seem like it's going anywhere anytime soon...and thank goodness for that! Check out this amazing Hawks by Geren Ford Ruffle Tank available at Urban Outfitters. This knit tank comes in two colors: black and blue. We love the top worn alone...and we love it even more when it is layered (see the image below).


Lookin' Fab

Wowsers! I almost didn't even recognize Kate Winslet in this picture. I always thought she was beyond beautiful, and never really understood why Hollywood gave her such a hard time with her weight. So what if she isn't a size zero...she's by no means overweight. Anyway, when I came across this photo I was blown away. The dress (by Balmain) she wore at the L.A. premiere of her latest film, Revolutionary Road, was fabulous! And her new hairstyle is totally working for her! Kudos Kate...you look great!

The Hills Fashion

The Hills has got to be one of my all-time favorite reality television shows. One of my favorite things on the show has to be the FASHION! Between design classes, runway shows, and working at People's Revolution you know you'll see some amazing styles...and don't forget about the individual styles of the cast of the show. Personally I like Lauren, Whitney, and Lo's styles. Which person's style on The Hills do you identify with most?

I was tickled pink when I received my Shop It To Me Salemail (which gives me a sum up of all the designers that I personally pick in my sizes that are on sale) today and it had a number of pieces from Lauren Conrad on shopbop.com that were on sale! These prices are so great...some are even half off! Also, for two days only you can save 30% off ALL non-sale items. Use code HOLIDAYLOVE at checkout (expires 12/17).

Don't forget to watch the
45 minute season finale of The Hills next Monday (December 22nd) at 10pm. And on December 29th Whitney's new spinoff show, The City, will be making it's debut at 10pm. Will you be watching? You know I will!!!

Trend Block

Mini-puff skirts are a new trend that we just adore! These super short skirts are being seen all over the place. We have found three that we just had to share with our readers---

Elastic-Waist Skirt from Alloy- $26.50-28.50. This skirt is available in three colors: dark red, black, and teal. One thing that we really love about this skirt is that it has pockets.

Cranberry Puff Skirt from issarocks- $30. Issa from We Wear Things has her own Etsy shop where she makes the cutest puff skirts. Her inventory is always changing...so keep an eye out on her site!

Frozen Raspberries Skirt from Mod Cloth
- $44.99. Nothing makes us smile more than a bold purple mini. This skirt may be short, but the unique high waist makes it very sweet. Buy one and be the talk of the party!

*Great Deal*

French Connection has some amazing sales going on right now. We absolutely love this Kazbar Top in their collection. It is now on sale for $89.99 (regularly priced at $138). This top would look adorable with a pair of skinny jeans or even a pencil skirt. Perfect to wear on a first date or a night out with your girlfriends.

Volcom Jezabel Party Dress- $68.00

Best Holiday Dresses---J. Crew

The fact that I have my husband's work holiday party to go to tonight has me really thinking about holiday dresses. Obviously I am a little behind this year...and I'm going to just dig through my closet and find something. Oh well! But for all of you that still need a holiday dress for an upcoming party, we continue our series.

Here are the best dresses from J. Crew---

Silk Taffeta Delores Dress-

Feather Chiffon Dress- $199.99

Silk Taffeta Ruffle Wrap Dress-


*Great Deal*

Everyone needs that one item in their wardrobe that they can wear with practically everything. For me that item is a denim skirt. I think I personally own like three or four of them...and I'd love to have more in my wardrobe. If you don't have this go-to staple in your closet we suggest you check out this 5-Pocket Denim Mini from American Eagle Outfitters. Right now it is on sale for only $29.95 (regularly $39.50). Also, head to American Eagle now and take advantage of the BUY ONE GET ONE 50% OFF sale they are having on everything in the store!


Mischa Talks Style

Mischa Barton has just revealed her style icons...

“I think my favorite fashion icons have always been women of the ’70s – real rock & roll chicks like Anita Pallenberg and Marianne Faithfull.” The actress finds it a little more difficult to get inspired by today’s stars, however. “I like quirkiness in people,” she explains. “And I like people who just dress like what suits them and their personality.” Her choice for a modern fashion tastemaker? Fellow actress Zooey Deschanel, she says, “has awesome style.”

Now I must admit that her admiration for women of the 1970's comes to no surprise to me. She's always looking very retro. I do love that she loves Zooey's style! If I had to list my celebrity style influences this would be my list:

~Zooey Deschanel
~Rachel Bilson

~Mandy Moore
~Drew Barrymore

~Lauren Conrad

Who would be on your list? Which celebrities inspire your fashion???


Stocking Stuffers

We know many of you give out gift cards or even cash this time of year...but how about making these gifts a little more personal and unique? Visa's Gift Card Lab does just that! Here you can upload a photo and put it directly on a gift card. It's pretty neat. I actually got one of these as a wedding gift with a photo of me and my husband on it. Even after the balance was used I still hung on to the card because it was really too cute to just throw away! CLICK HERE and make a card of your own.


Old Navy Doorbuster

Make sure you head on over to Old Navy on Saturday December 13th. They are having waffle knit tees for everyone for only $5!!! This doorbuster sale is only going on tomorrow...while supplies last!
