It’s A Wrap or is it a Poncho?

Poncho, Wrap, #poncho #wrap, Zara #zara

Browsing through the Zara website, I found this lovely go to item, and now I’m totally in love with this poncho/wrap.  I love the earthy colours; you can do a lot with this, throw it on over a pair of skinny jeans and a chunky turtle neck, add a pair of Minnetonka knee-high fringe boots, and you’re off to the races! At $49.90, the price isn’t bad either.

Available here.

Stylish Shaggy Wear…

October is really and truly here!  This morning it was 35 degrees, but thank goodness it got up to 55.  I’m more of a summer 90 degrees person myself, but I don’t mind this part of autumn, where the air is crisp and the sun is shining brightly.  October is layering month and if you’re looking for something funky to dress up those jeans and your heels, this shaggy cardigan jacket is a must have.

I bought this shaggy jacket a couple of months ago for exactly this time of year, lightweight, stylish but warm and cozy at the same time. I love it because it has a 70’s vibe to it and I love clothing from that era. I purchased this one from eBay where I buy a lot of my things, because I’m sure to find unusual and quirky items, which makes me stand out from the crowd.  I’ve had so many compliments on this jacket, I’m thinking of buying another in black!

Available here.

If you’re looking for a pair of inexpensive funky leggings, these just arrived via H&M. They were $7.95 down from $17.95 {sale ends tomorrow}.  The quality is lovely and the splash print looks even better in person.  Shop yours today here.

Also, remember tomorrow is Small Business Saturday.  Shop your independent small business retailer, whether online or brick and mortar; it’s important as it’s the beginning of the holiday shopping season, small businesses really depend on you.  You’ll love the unique and one of kind items you’ll find for yourself and for holiday gifts.

Too Late Marimekko…

Banana Republic & Marimekko Polka Dot Dress #bananarepublic #shopping, banana republic, Banana Republic & Marimekko, Marimekko Well guess who overslept and woke up at a 7:00 a.m. to try to snag that gorgeous Marimekko skirt from Banana Republic, only to find out that the sale was open to card holders (which I’m one) 2 days early, and that it was the first item to go!!!!  This is what happens when you have too many things going on at the same time!! I need an assistant… Stat!

I was able to snag the strapless dress, which if I like it, will become my Saturday running errands dress.  For all of you who were able to grab the skirt… Congrats!!  I do have several skirts in the same style as the Marimekko skirt, so I’m not too crushed about it.  Apparently it’s also in stores, but I really don’t have time to run around looking for it.

Banana Republic & Marimekko

Well Darlings, I for one, cannot wait for the release of the limited edition capsule collection from Banana Republic and Marimekko.  Now this is a collaboration I can work with.  I will have my Banana card at the ready, especially for the skirt above.  I love a full midi skirt with side pockets, which is always a classic and timeless look.

Marimekko’s signature bold prints have graced clothes, fabrics, furniture, and tableware; and now Banana Republic has collaborated with the Finland based brand to come up with what in my opinion, will be a sell out collection {especially that skirt!}.

The two looks below are also on my radar, I’m loving  those cropped pants!!

Set your smart phone/tablet a few days ahead, to remind you, the collection debuts in select stores and online May 22.

Sparkle Friday Compressed

Hello Darlings, today is Sparkle Friday.  This has been the most challenging week to date, and these shoes, which I found in the back of my closet, just this morning, did the trick.  Don’t you just love shopping in your own closet?  I have no idea why these shoes got relegated to the back of the closet, but here they are to cheer me up on this beautiful (yet overcast) last day of the week.

Wishing you the most fabulous and chic weekend, and to all the Beautiful, Caring and Hardworking Fabulous Mothers, who shower unconditional love to their families every day, have a beautifully blessed U.S. Mother’s Day

And remember…
