Fashion week is over, Spring 2010 collections are out, trends have been set, buyers are in a frenzy, money is being spent and fashionistas everywhere are craving, starving and ravishing for new Rags and accessories. One trend that stuck out to us were BIG BOWS.  They were all over the runways from Marc by Marc Jacobs to the ever obvious Betsey Johnson. Tell us what you think... will you be donning this new fad?

Boyfriend Turns Tricks

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE... this is my super cute boyfriend who was a nonbeliever in the art of online sales and cash back programs. A skeptic at its best. He was searching for appliances for the house he is building. We had been EVERYWHERE. Home Depot, Lowes, Best Buy, Conns, Sears, JCPenny- and if anyone knows me- you know I was not happy to have been in more than one hardware store in less than a day. Dreadful really.  So we got home (empty handed)... he got online and started shopping. I told him about our "few tricks of the trade" post so that he could get some money back from his purchases by using ebates. He was reluctant to say the least- but I got him all signed up and he SAVED over $130 by shopping Home Depot thru

a few little tricks of the trade...

Looking for that perfect piece of clothing online can be a daunting task.  BUT look on the bright side, searching online can afford you a wider search while allowing you to keep that budget in check. Here are a few helpful ideas to help you get that perfect piece for a perfect price!

Join ebates or Lucky rewards (must be a subscriber to Lucky Magazine); these sites allow you to search for the merchant you want on their site and then they transfer you to that site while giving you a ticket number.  You get a certain percentage of the money you spend back!  AMAZING.  Honestly, since late 2008, I have received over $200 back- embarrassing, but true!

Shop at websites like:, and when possible.  Oftentimes, these websites offer discounts upwards of 70% and there can be such great deals to be had! 

  The DIRTY DIRTY TRUTH is some websites offer coupon/ promo codes that they do not particularly advertise on their websites.  If you just "GOOGLE" or "BING" (whichever your preference), "_(website)_ coupon codes" you might be surprised what pops up.  Sometimes, the codes are expired, but when they are not, they are completely worth it!

We LOVE these sites- 2 of our all time favorites

We LOVE Lulus for those Rags with really great Tags!!! 
Everything on the site is super cute and with a Tag that will definitely to make you smile. 
Prices are unbelievable!

It was love at first sight with this Burnt Pumpkin Handbag. The perfect accessory for any outfit- the color is awesome and so is the price- $36. 

Always a favorite- FEATHER ACCESSORIES- try this Feather Bracelet at this stellar price - $12

Save the Day Dress is super cute with flats for some summer fun or throw on some heels and dress it up for a night on town. The back is absolutely adorable and the price is to die for- $35!

We HEART these Greco Studded Sandals. A little pricey for sandals but sometimes a little splurge is necessary for the perfect summer sandal. $97
The perfect Wide Leg Black Trouser but hurry- not too many left on the site and understandably at this price- $32

Yoox has got to be one of the best sites around-BAR NONE.  
The selection is amazing and the prices are very reasonable for the designers offered. 
ALSO, if you are an online shopper who likes to know they are getting a good deal at a legit site (which is always nice), perhaps a positive review from NEWSWEEK would give 
you extra security in your potential investment.  There are so many great pieces on this site, 
but here are some our favorites for starters!
Up to 80% off End of Winter Sale on!

1. A little M Missoni hummm, why not (esp for $25)?  This would be perfect stacked with some of your other favorite bracelets and bangles!

2. Golden Goose, We love this sweater, love the pockets, love the draping, great piece.
Only $59.00 originally $190

3. A girl can dream can't she? Alaia $395 a great discount from originally priced $590

4. Belts are always a great accessory. This would be great over a dress in the summer or a larger sweater in the winter- simply put...and investment piece! Yigal Azrouel $49 originally $128

5. The angles on this dress are fabulous and can't you see wearing this piece once (if you so choose) kids come into the mix? LONGEVITY in a dress? Always nice. Rogan $65 originally $160

Who Dat!!!

We will be cheering on our Saints with some of our favs from this season.  
 We will be HOOTING on Drew Brees with these adorable owl earrings from Lulus.  Only $9.00!!! And head banging and dancing our way to victory in this Free People Heavy Metal Top from one of our favorite sites Billion Dollar Babes. Shirt is originally $118 but its only $25.00 on this site!!! Don't worry if you are not a member of Billion Dollar Babes, just send us your email and we will send you an invite.  Don't feel like getting quite that dressed up- throw on a slouchy Tee from American Apparel. We love it in Slate but maybe try it in Lemon or Gold for the game.
 Definitely need some comfy pants for the evening to cheer, dance, scream, eat and drink. We absolutely LOVE these Joe's Jeans The Legging. Try them with a tunic, boyfriend sweater, boots or heels. Check them out at Joes's Jeans. Only $89.00.  And to complete our WHO DAT outfit, our biggest love of all this season, the Faux Fur Rachel Roy vest.
