Leftover Bags Totes

April 28th, 2008

Seems like everybody has their own favorite eco-friendly totes. And now pretty much every store offers its own reusable shoppers. I’ve collected about a dozen. My Mango tote is the most durable one I’ve used so far because of its tight thick canvas. It’s not the cutest but it’s really reliable, great to bring to the grocery store. I’m always looking for cute ones too. Check out these organic-cotton canvas totes from Leftover Bags. I especially like the fun graphics incorporated with the recycle symbol.  At 16″ x 17″, they sit snuggly on your shoulder, $38 exclusively at shopbop.com.

Posh’s Jeans are at a discount store

April 25th, 2008

Apparently Posh’s jeans aren’t selling so well. Gee, I wonder why, at $275 a pop at Kitson. But if you live close to a Loehmann’s, they are giving them away for $69.99. I bet she never expected to see her jeans go to a discount store.

Little Joe by Gail Elliott Aspen dress

April 25th, 2008

Little Joe by Gail Elliott Aspen dress $387.44 on sale for $167! Oh my this ultra-feminine dress is just to die-for! This is a caramel silk dress with semi-sheer elbow length sleeves. The square neckline is very flattering but very demure. And I just LOVE the sleeves with elasticated bow detail. You can either wear a thin belt like in the picture for a romantic and easy-going look or a funky wider belt for an edgier feel. Either way, this dress will get you noticed.

Did you guys hear that Ashlee Simpson just launched a new line featuring tees & tops now available exclusively at Wet Seal? Me neither. But I’m not surprised. Which celeb isn’t launching a clothing line thesedays? Above are two outfits that Ashlee herself put together. A tee and skinny jeans. How original! Interested in a top with Ashlee’s face on it? I’m too old for that. Darn!

Buying women’s shoes is not as simple as it used to be. Today a shoe illustrates a lot more than what naked eye sees. This means liz claiborne shoes are all about old money where as marc jacobs shoes are about money and that of steve madden shoes about style.

Thermaclear Acne Treatment

April 24th, 2008

Where was Thermaclear Heat Enabled Acne Treatment ($149.95) when I was a teenager? It would’ve blasted away those darn zits that loved popping up on my chin! Have you heard of it? It’s a heat-enabled blemish clearing skincare tool for mild to moderate acne. technology is similar to laser treatments dermatologists use, so it’s powerful. It only takes TWO SECONDS to treat a pimple. It delivers a controlled burst of healing thermal energy that reaches deep beneath the surface of the skin, neutralizing the bacteria causing the pimple. This speeds the healing process so the pimple goes away much faster than if it’s just left to its own devices. You know how much that’ll take. Mine take FOREVER! And during all that time of waiting, there’s a much greater risk of scarring and discoloration. So anything that can get rid of pimples fast is pure magic to me. It’s a best-seller at Sephora or learn more about it at ThermaClear’s website and get free shipping 🙂
