6 Coats under $200

My biggest complaint about winter (other than the cold, and the weather, I could go on…) has to be the price of the clothing.  Summer is easy with a dress and sandals, but in the colder months, there are sweaters, boots, and the worst offender…..COATS!  Everything is so expensive that one cannot possibly stay as [...]

ThisThatBeauty Reviews: GIVE apparel meaning

ThisThatBeauty and GIVE Open Cardigan

Talk about a long overdue blog post. . . bad (busy, super pregnant) Blogger! I can’t believe I haven’t covered GIVE apparel meaning sooner.

Now THIS! This simple little number from Narciso Rodriguez captured my heart right from the start.

I like to think I’ve got a pretty deep closet. I’ve accumulated some choice fashion finds over the years. . . a killer statement shoe here, a dope-azz tote there. Ya know. I do OK. But sometimes an invite comes across my desk. . . for let’s say — a super duper formal gala and [...]
