Zig Zag Jacket from Forever 21

I am in love with this jacket.


The fact that it comes in SEVEN colors makes it even more fantastic.. I am a huge jacket wearer (thanks to What Not to Wear) and saw this one and drooled. You could wear it with almostanything. Wear it with a skirt, wear it with jeans, wear it with dress pants. You could put a ruffled shirt under it, a downeastbasics/shade/layers tee under as well. This is perfect for three of the four seasons in most of the country. I think I might could get away with this in the winter time.

At this price I can get more than one and expand my ever growing wardrobe. I do know Navy blue is first on the list. What color would you get?

Spice It Up!

Spice it up!
Your look that is!!
Spring and summer are just around the corner, which means bare legs.
No more constricting tights ( personally never wear pantyhose, they are so stress inducing!)
What better than to hide the flaws and use light to your advantage, than to use a shimmer lotion..
One of my favorites is By Soap and Glory (which is found at your friendly neighborhood Target)
is great for all skin colors and types and only runs $9.99. I bought some last spring and is still 3/4 full and I use it liberally!!
This is great for us gals that prefer to be free from the tyranny of pantyhose!

Cute Shoes from Payless

$19.99 for Mary Janes with a low heel from Payless.

These really match anything. You could wear bare legged, with tights, even knee high socks for a funky look.

A red plaid wool skirt, with turtleneck in black and these with black tights would be adorable..

$24.99 from Payless.

How cute, they would match any style of jeans.

Or khakis paired with a white blouse and a jean jacket..

Navy pretty much matches anything..

$27.99 from Payless.

Some really great Retro Navy Blue Dot Peeptoes..

Just think of all the skirts, trousers and dresses you could wear these with.

A cute white dress with a blue cardigan, heck even a red one would be fun!

Favorite Body Lotion!! C. Booth 4-in-1 Multi-Action Body Lotion, Lemon Sugar

I just love this lotion!
It smells so yummy, yet fresh and clean.
I bought me a bottle of it over a year ago, use it almost nightly and still have half of it left.
So in my mind this is a bargain!
$9.99 for 32 ounces of lotion.
The ingredients are the following.

A potent combo of alpha hydroxy acids works tirelessly to ditch dead skin cells and even out skin tones so even sun-damaged areas look healthy and happy.
Sweet almond, apricot kernel and shea butter oils work in perfect harmony to hydrate needy skin.
Vitamins and minerals perform like superheroes, valiantly fighting off the dastardly deeds of the harsh environmental forces that threaten our skin.
Caffeine firms and tones less-than-taut skin, making it feel youthful, revitalized and wide awake.

Ruffle Tube Skirt from Blend Fashions

Ruffle Tube Skirt from Blend Fashions, used to be Mod Bod. The grey color is a color that is totally in style right now and it is stretchy , so it can grow or shrink with you.. It is only $29.00. They have some cute stuff on that site, so be sure to go and check it out!!!

Vintage Hem Newbie

New Flirty length extender slip from Vintage Hem.
Add length to the dresses and skirts that can be too short for us modest mavens..
It is $60, so it isn't cheap.
I would love this, but will have to wait until it hopefully goes on sale.
The one good thing, it is black and black goes with EVERYTHING!
I have several of the slips and wear them almost with every dress I own.
I am tall , so everything is short on me.
What do you think about this?
Is it worth the investment, especially in a downturned economy??

Fav, Fav, Fav Moisturizing Face Stuff

Origins A Perfect World
White Tea Skin Guardian..
Oh my gosh I use this three times a day.
It makes my skin feel like velvet.
Doesn't cause skin irritation or flareups.
I wear it alone, under my moisturizer or my makeup.
It smells divine.
It feels wonderful going on.
A little goes a long way.
Is on the $$$ side, but in my opinion worth it.
One of Origins best sellers and for good reason!

Yet Another Different Haircut

Yes I change my hair, as much as I change my clothes.. I always have and would be so bored if it were the same all the time.. I have been red, blonde, light brown and strawberry blonde. Haven't tried black or brunette, that might be to far of a stretch... The blonde is the most recent. I got it done in Idaho while I was home for my uncles funeral.. I am now supposedly trying to grow it out a little longer, to have a really asymetrical bob..

Cute Sailor Dress for All Year Round.

This great dress called Anchors Away is on sale at Shabby Apple for 62.00. Really not a bad price when it could be worn year round. The site says it runs small, so I would order a size up.. What kind of shoes and accessories would you match with this dress??
