Style For Less: Zara Lace-Up Sandals vs. Zigi Soho Barrel High Heels

cheap-vs-cheaper-zara-lace-up-sandals-zigi-soho-barrel-heels

Lace Up Heels are the current “it” item in heels. I have added a few pairs to my collection recently myself. Black lace up sandals with delicate cut-out are the perfect complement to a casual or dressy look. They even work for fall, just a cute pair of tights! Zara is always right on trend when it comes to fashion. The have  or shall I say had the cutest pair of lace up booties priced at $129. They are currently sold out. Please do not fret! I found a dupe and the best part is that they are priced for less!  So not only are they spot-on identical and readily available, they also happen to cost ~50% less than the Zara version! That is a fashion win-win!

Many of us, myself included fell in love with the wedge sneaker trend started by Isabel Marant, I must admit that I really liked Marant’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection. Especially the shoes!

If you continue reading I have a style for less option and more details on the featured boot.

Nordstrom to Expand Partnership with Topshop

nordstrom-store

Last year,we shared that Nordstrom would be launching in-store Topshop departments, and now WWD is reporting that the brands’ partnership will be expanding significantly.

Currently, Nordstrom has Topshop departments at 14 of their U.S. locations, but this will expand to another 28 stores this fall, either in late September and October. By early 2014, the Topshop line will also be carried at an additional 30 Nordstrom locations.

Nordstrom’s President of Merchandising, Pete Nordstrom explained the reason behind the expansion:

“It behooves both Topshop and us to get it going as quickly as possible. I would say in general it’s been productive — more productive than the average department in women’s. So, when you combine that with the fact that it attracts a lot of new customers as well, it’s been a good thing

 

Style Watch: Crochet Shorts

Shorts: 12, 3

Just like their lace counterparts, crochet shorts are a huge trend for spring and summer. Simultaneously girly and boho, these trendy shorts can elevate a casual look to fashion perfection. I suggest hitting the stores for this trend, these shores can be styled so many different ways.  Whether your style is hippie-chic, ultra-feminine, eclectic-boho, or somewhere in between these shirts are sure to add a girlish on trend flare.

Style Watch: Lucite Sunglasses

One of my must have summer items are sunglasses. Yes, I know they can be worn year round but there is something about sunglasses in the summer my sets my day. Clear sunglasses are all the rage this summer. The lucite trend has been around in various forms for a few seasons but it has been pretty dramatic as of late. Lucite shoes and clutches are still a bold choice but lucite sunglasses are a great way to add the trend to your everyday wardrobe. Continue reading for some on trend shades for you!

Pray For Boston

timthumb.php

 

I’m a Boston Girl and the bombing that happened on yesterday in Boston at the Marathon saddened my heart. Although it is a sad sight to see my heart is uplifted at the unity and selflessness shown on the day of the horrible event and from the various cities across the country and people at the race. This is not only an attack on my city, but it is an attack on our nation, on our world as the marathon is a world wide event. I pray that the persons responsible are brought to justice and I pray for healing and strength for my  my state, my city, my neighbors, the injured and the families of the ones that have passed on. God Bless their souls. Please pray for Boston, pray for Massachusetts, pray for our country pray for our world! Boston will solider on!
