Trend Alert-Arm Party

It’s time for an arm party!  If you’re not familiar with this, here’s an example:

You can stack as many bracelets as you feel comfortable with but the minimum you stack should be three bracelets.  The bracelets should share a similar style, so the look flows.  Make your biggest bracelet the first one you put on and stack from there.  Of course, sometimes my arm party gets out of hand and the bracelets change places at will.  If this happens, I just let them do whatever they want.

I read a great article about arm parties where the writer wondered why you would spend money on a gym membership when you can buy tons of bracelets for your arms, instead?  Priorities!

Here are some arm parties ready to go at excellent prices.  Have fun stacking!

This is my arm party for today.

I went with a toned down, classic arm party for work.  All bracelets are from Premier Designs.

Poshmark-The Must Have Fashion App

I was recently introduced to Poshmark and have fallen head over heels for this app!  Poshmark is basically an online clothing market.  You can download it as an app on your Iphone, Ipad or Ipod Touch or you can just use it online.

Basically, you can buy AND sell fashion items through this site in “closets.”  I recommend it over Ebay because there is NO cost to list your items you want to sell!  The downside is that Poshmark takes 20% of your profit as payment.  That’s a high percentage but it saves you money in the long run by not paying for items that don’t sell.  If you pay Ebay 50 cents each to list 10 items, you would pay $5.00-even if none of them sell.  With Poshmark, you can list as many items as you want and only pay when your item sells.  Also, there’s no time limit, so you can leave your items up for sale as long as you want.

It’s incredibly easy to buy and sell items.  To sell an item, the app walks you through everything step by step.  You can have an item listed with pictures in a matter of minutes.  To buy an item, you just click on the “buy” button, enter your credit card and shipping information and you’re done.  You get an email confirming your order, an email when your order ships out and an email when the order arrives!  The person selling the item doesn’t receive the money until you receive your item.  When you get your item, you should unpack it and check it ASAP because you have to go into the app and click on a button saying you received your item.  When you click on this button, the seller receives their money.  All sales are final sale but some sellers will let you return items if they don’t fit.  I bought a pair of shoes and the process was incredibly smooth.  I received the shoes very quickly.  There are lots of great fashion finds for amazing prices!

When you sell an item through Poshmark, they email you a pre-paid, pre-addressed shipping label for US Postal Service.  You box up your item, put the shippping label on it, drop it off at the post office and you’re done!

You can take a peak at my closet here.  If you’d like to create your own closet, use code HDINW to receive a $5 credit!  This offer is limited to the first 10 people to sign up, though!

Hope you enjoy this app!  Let me know if you create your own closet-I’d love to look at it!

Fab Without A Fortune

I’m trying something new, so I hope you like this.  Today, I’m featuring an outfit that looks fabulous but didn’t cost a fortune.  The jewelry was the most expensive part of my outfit!  I love the lace and vintage look of the dress but I feel the shorter length gives it that modern touch.  I paired this dress with nude, peep-toe wedges and added a fun black clutch.  I wore gold jewelry with a darker, brassy tone.  See the pictures for more details.  Let me know what you think about this new feature!

This dress looks really expensive but I purchased it for $30 at a giant sample sale open to the public.  Search the internet for these types of sales in your area.  Here's a similar dress you can buy here.

What’s Your Color?

Here are some examples of colors and who they look best on.  I hope this helps you to add more color into your wardrobe this summer.  Don’t be afraid to give bold colors a try.  You’ll never know what you may fall in love with until you actually try it on!  You are too fabulous not to give fun things a try!  Let me know if there are any other colors you’d like me to feature!
