Fabulous Friday!

Has anyone out there ever tried Send the Trend?  This is another subscription service I just recently came across.  This service offers you trendy accessories.  You take a style quiz and each month you choose from a variety of accessories that are matched to your style.  The cost is $29.95 for most items but some handbags run $39.95 and $49.95.  Shipping is free for the US and $10 per item for Canada.

One of the things I like is that this service offers a lot of ways to earn credit for purchases.  You get credit if you send a link for an accessory to your friends and they buy that item.  You get credit if a friend signs up and purchases something using your link.  You even get credit for every purchase you make.

I haven’t tried this service because I have a FABULOUS accessory store very near my house.  I usually prefer to shop at the store rather than buy things online.  I’d love to hear from you if you’ve tried this service or any other!

Here are some examples of items you can get from Send the Trend.  Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Friday Eve!  Labor Day is this Monday so I get an extra day off from work!  I LOVE three day weekends!  I LOVE holidays!  What will I do with all that spare time?  Shopping, of course!  I won’t have time for much shopping but there’s a resale shop not too far from me that’s having a big sale.  For $5, you get a bag full of all the clothes you can stuff into it.  Sounds like a pretty good deal to me!

Trend Alert-Wedge Sneakers

Wedge sneakers-the new big trend.  I’ve received numerous emails recently advertising them.  What do you think about them?

I know several people who have ordered a pair or already have a pair.  I really do love the wedge sneakers but I won’t be adding a pair to my collection.  I reserve the right to change my mind about that, though.  It’s so important to know your own style.  You don’t want to jump on every trend that pops up.  This trend is one that just doesn’t speak to my personal style at this point in my life.  Don’t be afraid to say no to a trend if it just doesn’t speak to you.  It doesn’t mean I hate the trend-I can enjoy it on other people.

For your enjoyment, here are some wedge sneakers at very reasonable prices if this trend speaks to your personal style.  If you get a pair, I’d love to see a picture of you wearing them!

Wardrobe Essentials: Jean Jacket

What are the classic items that you can add to your wardrobe that will never go out of style?  What are timeless pieces that add style and class after fashion fades?  That’s right…it’s time to talk about another essential piece you should add to your wardrobe.  The jean jacket!

The jean jacket is a perfect purchase if you’re looking for something that will always be fashionable and is something you can wear with everything.  I’ve heard differing opinions on wearing denim on denim (jean jacket and matching jeans.)  Some people don’t like wearing the “denim uniform” and some people love the look of matching denim.  I say, if you love it, you should wear it and be fabulous in it.  If you don’t like the look, you can wear the jean jacket with summer dresses, skirts, capri pants, leggings, slacks/trousers…the list goes on and on.

Here are some steals on amazing jackets if you need to add a new one to your wardrobe!  Happy shopping!  And a special Happy Birthday to Susen!

Fabulous Friday!

Have you heard of the new subscription service-Svbscription?  This one is very different in the fact that it’s for men!  It was created by Andrew Apostola of Portable and Dino Siampos and Sam Wheeler of Aux Armes.  According to the website, Svbscription is “a new ser­vice for men that deliv­ers lux­ury, curated prod­ucts and expe­ri­ences to your door.”  If you have a man in your life (husband, boyfriend, brother, friend, etc.)  that’s hard to shop for or if you just want to do something nice for that man in your life, this is a fantastic idea.

Mem­ber­ship enti­tles you to a new par­cel every three months. Each par­cel has a unique theme and con­tains prod­ucts that include design, cul­ture, tech­nol­ogy, apparel and entertainment.  The July 2012 parcel is sold out and they’re now working on the October 2012 parcel.  There is a big catch-the price.  This service is NOT cheap-it costs $300 for one parcel or you can get a one year subscription for $1100.  YIKES!  I did read an article about this service that said the products your man will receive are well worth the $300.  They’re supposed to be unique and rare items.

What do you think?  Would you spend this kind of money for your man?

I have my first vacation of the year coming up soon.  You better believe I’m counting down the days until I can get away for some time to myself!  For a brief period of time, I don’t have to put up with all the stress at work, I don’t have to worry about any of my regular responsibilities, I can just sit back and be pampered for a change!  It’s so important to get away from everyday life to recharge!

One of my favorite pictures from a past vacation. The ocean is calling me!

Now, it’s time to find some spectacular deals for you!  I hope you have a magnificent day!
