Thank you for all the great financial, career, and entrepreneurial advice you've given me these past days.


It's becoming my new go to for all this type of information and more.  They recently posted this great article by Tina Chen called "How to Stop Being a Slave to Time".  Probably one of the best time management posts I've read in a long time, that came at the most perfect time for me.  My favorite take-aways were "Redefine Your Measuring Stick" and "Set Up a Routine for Yourself"  You can read the whole article below on

While there I also fell in love with these two quotes from the post...

Do It In Denim

Ok...take away the ridiculous boots, but keep everything else and you've the making of a keeper of an outfit!

...who really chose these boots??

I am in love with this Button Down Denim dress from Forever21.  

It's a nice little nod to 70's with it's choice of color, button front and front bodice detail and length.  I've been holding out on this post for a day or so and I've watched the reviews on this dress go from 2 to almost 5 stars.   

It's on my list.   I know where I'm going this weekend.

Rag & Bone vs Everyone

Well...if they say "imitation is the best form of flattery"
                                                                   Rag & Bone must really be feeling the love.....

Their Talia v-neck sweater has been imitated SO many times it is ridiculous!

It is a great sweater I must say,  and I'll admit I'm actually wearing a knock off version of it by Derek Heart I picked up for 8 bucks at Rue21 as I write this post.  Although I do feel some type of way about knocking off designer pieces, in reality we all can't afford R&B prices.

Excuse the tired expression.  I working with a stiff neck here...

So while browsing around on  I wasn't too surprised coming  across this.

This is Vero Moda's Varsity Style Long Line Sweater.  I will admit...I do like it just a tad more than the R&B despite the absence of the deep V neckline which I'm quite fond of.  
I like the length, added stripes on the hem and that it's 100% cotton.   I also like the price.  $47.38

,,,,,what an odd price.....

Give Me Lots O Sweaters! Thick Nordic Warm Sweaters!!

I'm a sweater junkie.  I have a lot.  Not a ridiculous number that's just unmanageable, but perhaps too many to pull out every winter.   Lately I've been all about quality 80's style sweaters from the thrifts.  I don't care how much I look like I just stepped out of "She's One of the Guys" of my favorite 80's movies btw.

Anthropologie's offering this beautiful Barnegat Pullover by Knitted and Knotted for $98

While Ralph Lauren is giving away this Snowflake and Reindeer sweater dropped from $298 to $94!

                                             however, is offering up some of the yummiest sweater dresses I seen in a long time-

This complete look is def. on my wishlist.

...can I get the above pieces in a medium, and an 8 and a half.

No More Skipping

So I was all ready to skip this month's charge from Jewelmint, like always when I seemed to be having the most difficult time finding the button.
...Low and Behold!!..We No Longer Need To Skip To Not Be Charged!!!!!!!
Oh My Gods...someone heard my prayers!! (or rants) and I don't have to dread the 1st to the 5th of every month!!!!   What a friggin blessing!

However...unfortunately for Jewelmint it will be quite difficult for me to buy anything anymore being I haven't intentionally made a purchase since after they first launched.  My money is always spent better elsewhere.  You wouldn't know it today tho... I was all Jewelminted out.  I realized it when as resident at my job pointed out all my jewels and asked where I got them from....

In this shot I'm wearijng the Phoenix necklace, the Lady Luxe cuff which EVERYONE loves.  I get more comments on this dang cuff than anything else I wear, and my In the Rough ring which was my very first purchase.

I'm noticing now just how many pieces I have brought, or been forced to buy from them.  I must be a fan.
