Blurb Holiday Gift Guide & Sale

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

Can you believe that the holidays are right around the corner? I am still trying to hold on to the freedom and sunshine of summer, but I must admit that I am loving the lovely red leaves on the liquid amber trees outside of my kitchen, and all of the fabulous fall boots in the stores. Before we know it – winter will be here…

Rather than waiting to the very last minute to shop for holiday gifts, I think it might be my year to get personal, unleash a little creativity, and create one-of-a-kind gifts for my family.  I know my parents and in-laws will love receiving something special and this is the weekend to get started…

High Heel High Tops

I am not sure if I would actually wear these high tops but I found them to be rather fun and quite perfect for the stiletto loving woman who is not in the mood to actually wear a pair of heels. These Maison Dumain by Be&D Trompe L’Oeil High Top Sneakers are a great gift for the girl who has everything – including a sense of humor. Timing couldn’t be better – right now they are on clearance so you can save a bundle too.

Layla Grace Apparel Sale

ELLA MOSS STELLA TIE FRONT POPPY TOP

I get a lot of questions from women asking me about my favorite maternity clothes. Back a number of years ago when I was pregnant with my son there were not nearly as many options for cute maternity wear as there are today. I actually shopped at Forever 21 for a lot of the tops I wore throughout my pregnancy. One thing you will notice if you open any magazine is that there are a lot of celebrities who wear ‘regular’ clothes while they are pregnant too. Of course, you want elastic waist bands ASAP, but I always tell people to look for stylish tops right off the racks of their favorite stores. It might be easier than you think to find great transitional clothes – especially for those first few months. Some tops will also work great after you have had your child when your stomach is adjusting back to its former state. At that point you are no longer pregnant so it seems a little weird to still be wearing maternity clothes. Though it is hard to give up all that elastic!

I was checking out the sale going on now through March 31st at Layla Grayce (you can save 20% off all apparel with promo code style20) and I found a lot of great pieces that would fit the bill for newly pregnant women and for anyone looking to keep their little waist top secret.

WAVERLY GREY LEI LEI BLUE & WHITE TOP
The red top above is the Ella Moss Stella Tie Front Poppy Top. Don’t you love that color?  I also thought this Waverly Grey Lei Lei Blue & White Top would be perfect for work or evenings out. The simple detail at the neckline will hopefully draw attention away from your tummy. They also have a number of pretty scarves that are perfect to layer over t-shirts.

Don’t miss your chance to shop this fabulous sale! Go check out Layla Grayce today to see if there is anything you can’t live without…

Lamps, Rugs & More

It is time to hop over to One Kings Lane to dream about all of the new home furnishings we desperately need to obsess about for our homes. I must admit, I get a little sucked in to OKL because I  have so much fun picking out items for my dream house. Tonight I was totally obsessed with all of the fabulous black and white I found. And these patterns – love them! It makes we want to paint my whole house and have a do over of sorts.  But I have also found a few things that I can use today. In an attempt to follow my new year’s resolution to cut back on online impulse purchases (it is not going that well by the way) I am going to sleep on it before I put the items into my magical shopping cart.

They are an ever stylish home furnishing brand offering incredible deals on so many of their products right now, so you can check them out too.

Style Tips from Anya Sarre

Creating a Trendy Look on a Budget in 2013 by Anya Sarre

The coming year can be just as much fun as you are willing to make it. Great fashion is essential, but filling out your wardrobe with trendy separates and accessories may look challenging if you have a restricted budget. Be strategic as you plan your fashion steps this year. Make every fashion dollar count by making the most of your existing clothing and accessory items. Shop carefully as you follow the trends closely.

The benefit of online retail is obvious when it comes to knowing what styles will be at the forefront. If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on new trends, though, this can be discouraging. Don’t fret. Rather, start with contemporary favorites like StyleMint and ShoeDazzle to see what’s being stocked, what’s being put on clearance, and what’s sold out. Check out Stella & Dot and Birchbox for accessory, beauty, and jewelry ideas.

In store inspiration is important as well. A bright color may be popular, but trying it with your complexion will tell whether it’s meant for you. Handle textures and try different separates to get a sense of what works for you. Make notes as you explore. You know your existing wardrobe well enough to know how new components will mix and match. You can try things on to your heart’s content. This will give you a sense of what to buy when the funds are available. Forever 21 is one of the best spots for discovering great options at affordable prices. Old Navy is a favorite of young adults. H&M is another great stop to include in your exploration.

You may be intimidated by the DIY fashion craze. Pinterest may change your mind and revamp your wardrobe. Look for fantastic ideas for making your own shawls, scarves, skirts and bags. Find creative jewelry projects and materials. Don’t miss examples of cute outfits. Nearly every member seems to have a fashion wish list pinned. Whether you want to know what your favorite celebrities are adding to their closets or whether you need some color inspiration, you can track down unique options and pin your favorites.

The new fashion year isn’t always predictable, especially if finances make it tough to shop for yourself. Do your research so that you know what pieces will effectively work for you. Spend strategically, being willing to create your own accessories and separates.

Spruceling

spruceling-clothes

I don’t know about you, but after the holidays I am totally ready to clean the house and get organized. The first place I am going to start is my son’s closet. And this time I am going to try using a brand new company called Spruceling to help me de-clutter, make a few bucks and help others too.

Have you ever taken clothes to a consignment store? It is nice to get rid of things and clean out your closet but I found that I hardly got any money, and the money I did make was spent on gas to drop off the items and to go pick up the ones that didn’t sell. And it is never fun to have a stranger inspecting all of your clothes and telling you that the $75 dollar sweater your son wore once (for about 7 minutes) just wasn’t good enough. Uggh – never again!

clothes clothes

Spruceling is great because it is all online so you can do your selling and shopping any time of the day or night. For sellers, they make it easy with free shipping labels so it is easy to just drop off your box and go. And they handle all of the returns too so you don’t have to. Best part of all, you get a full 60% of the sale instead of the typical 25-35%. And for buyers, of course you get the perk of saving money (who doesn’t love that?) and not having to walk into a mall with your small children (so not fun!). The other thing that is kind of cool is that you basically purchase a box of items that are all the same size, instead of picking out items one by one. Just like getting a whole new little wardrobe. The interface of the site is super easy to navigate and you simply find a box that has cute things you think you and your child will love. And if you end up not liking the items, there is even a 30 day guarantee. You get to rate the seller too, and Spruceling makes sure that people who try to sell dirty, ripped, or worn out clothes will get a permanent time out. Who has time for someone else’s dirty clothes?

So you are probably thinking that there are many options when it comes to selling and buying gently worn kids clothes. Yes that is true. But there is one thing about Spuceling that made me love it – the charitable giving component of its business model. They donate a percentage of all sales to a different children’s charity every month. And for the month of December they are actually donating 100% of their proceeds to St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital. Love that!
