Ann Taylor LOFT is probably that secret gem that no one likes to admit they shop, but truly shop for all their closet staples. I am a proud shopper of LOFT. They carry the best jewelry, sunglasses, and blouses at a reasonable price. I have found some of the most adorable sweaters there as well that I have been wearing for YEARS from LOFT. The clothing line is feminine, cute, and very comfortable. The fabric they use is high quality, and easy to clean. These are all the components I look for when shopping for closet staples.

Old Navy is one of those brands where you can find the most unlikely steals and probably the most comfortable pajamas. Especially flannel pajamas. I find that Old Navy does a great job with Fall and Winter clothes, and layering pieces is one of their specialties. The price is always a win with on going sales and already low priced pieces, making the dollar go a long way. I would recommend going to the store to find your correct size before ordering online. Their clothing can run a tad bigger than other brands. Just something to keep in mind!
For this roundup, I have included all my favorite Old Navy picks that are perfect weekend casual outfit ideas. This includes pieces that work well for shopping with friends, brunch, or game day. As well as some clothing options for casual date night to the movies, bowling, or dinner. Of course I threw in a few of my favorite comfy pajamas for those mornings of sleeping in and having breakfast in bed! Let me know in the comments which options you love!
I remember when I was in high school I would LOVE to shop at Express in the Short Hills Mall. When they first launched their shoe collection, I nearly fell over. I still remember the leopard print wedges I bought from them. They were the most comfortable shoes I owned.
I still shop Express, especially for their work outfits. Whenever I need a nice pair of black slacks, I immediately think of Express. Somehow the fit is always right and I know they will have plenty of options to choose from. I recently scanned Express’s selection and fell in love with some new pieces that would be perfect for the office. For this roundup, I also included a few outerwear options to get you to work warmly and in style. I may have sneaked in a couple additional looks for those after hour drinks with coworkers. Everything you may need for your work week outfit options are below, let me know in the comments which items you are lusting after!
I recently caught myself in a tunnel vision scouting out the best bodysuits on the web. I was surprise to find that Free People offered a massive array of bodysuits that completely fit my personal style. I then checkout out what other accessories and Fall pieces they carried. I was shocked by how many items I was obsessed with. I rarely shop the brand, and often don’t even consider them for clothing. However this season, I am at awe by the collection.
Today I wanted to share a few of my favorite finds from Free People. These picks are perfect for Holiday parties, everyday wear, and could even be carried throughout the year. I’ve sorted each style out to help you select the styles you are looking for in particular, while adding a few style notes. In the comments, let me know which styles you love. Also, do you like online shopping?
Nowadays, you can buy anything online. Some of the best and most trendy clothing is purchased on a website. For instance, Fashion Nova is killing the game as an online retailer for women, men, and plus size apparel. Pretty Little Things, co-founded by Umar Kamani, is also topping the charts as a fashion retailer. Most of these trendy clothing websites became popular with the help of mega Instagram influencers and endorsed by the Kardashians. But nonetheless, buying online has become the new place to shop for trendy and affordable options.
Happy Saturday! We made it to the weekend, and sometimes the best way to celebrate is with some online shopping. There are a few incredible sales happening right now that I thought you may want to check out. Whether you are prepping for back to school, or need a few last minute summer looks, here is some perfect options in this edition of August Weekend Sales Round Up!
Trend alert, paper bag pants are making a massive breakout. The signature silhouette of a paper bag pant is loose fitted with a tied waist. The pants typically hit right around the natural waist line and have a straight leg. This Summer in particular, striped paper bag pants are becoming increasingly trendy to rock. They encompass the nautical theme effortlessly while having a relax fit. Cropped paper bag pants are also very trendy, and can be easier to styled if your more of a minimalist.
Like with much of the fashion trends emerging this year, 70s vibes are big! Music Festivals are the perfect places to wear these chic, inspired disco trends. Think flared pants, kimonos, Birkenstock sandals, and of course printed baby doll dresses. If you have any vintage 70s pieces, pull those out for the occasion. Vintage tees, ruffles, and straw totes are still big this season as well, so don’t be afraid to weave those into your look. Keep on reading to find out how to style and where to buy the perfect festival approved outfit for 2018.
Did you know that Balmain has a sister line called Pierre Balmain? It originated in 2011 as a way for consumers to own a piece from the Balmain brand without having to pay the heavy price. The design team, the same group who oversees Just Cavalli, takes inspiration from Olivier Rousteing’s collection and create pieces that reflect the Parisian military style Balmain is known for. You’ll find a plethora of well structured, fitted blazers, skirts, and Moto jeans within the Pierre Balmain collection. If you take a look at Balmain newest arrivals, you can see the similarity in the two lines (just the price is different!). I have found the most challenging part is finding a place to shop the Pierre Balmain.
So where can you get the latest from Pierre Balmain?

It’s here! Gucci’s Spring Collection has hit most retailers for pre-order and online ordering… And it’s pretty insane. Take a look for yourself to see if you are willing to buy one of these designer pieces for Spring 2018.
The nice part of this collection is that most pieces are classically designer and will last a life time. The sequin jumpsuit is just something to completely marvel at. I seriously want to know which celeb will be spotted int it. I personally can see Jeffree Star rocking the look.
