Xmas Countdown

It’s official. There’s a mere 15 shopping days left till XMAS. Whatttt?! How did this happen? If you’re anything like me you were adamant about making a list and checking it twice somewhere around Cyber Monday.But as the holidays go…you blink and it’s Christmas.

Bearing in mind that time is ticking away, I woke early this morning and hit the malls.  Now I know you’re probably thinking, sit right back down and hit the web, cruise Amazon at warp speed or check out the 250 retail emails littering my Inbox. You’re probably screaming at me or at least saying in your mind: “You don’t have to leave home to shop these days.” I KNOW THAT… but I like to go “old school” and actually see,feel and inspect an item that I”m going to be gifting. Well, there’s  THAT and  truth be told, I like to add oodles of personal touches to my gift giving boxes because most of them will be mailed out of state to friends and family.   For the past several years I’ve always included some sort of homemade item baked fresh in my kitchen. If you’re looking for some easy breezy recipes and some holiday inspo to wrap them before hitting the SEND  button on your postage purchase stay tuned this week.

If you’ve been looking for the perfect pleated skirt for holiday parties I may have found your stylish solution. Today on Haute Look (A division of Nordstrom-so you KNOW it’s good) are two, count um, two beautiful pleated skirts that should fit the bill. One is in silver and one is in gold and both are sale priced under $50.00 (originally priced over $100.)0) so basically a steal of a deal. Complete with pretty pleats and an elastic waistband which  translates into a perfect fit that won’t pinch if you should happen to have one appetizer too many. Pair with a beautiful off the shoulder look, flowing blouse, or a camisole and moto jacket. This item will most likely sell out fast so clickety click and buy it ASAP.

Tuesday Tip-Be Heeled.

O.K,.MAJOR disclaimer. I can’t take one ounce of credit for the following information but when I came across this article that touts determining heel height and COMFORT, I have to share it with you my wonderful readers ASAP. Bearing in mind that all things concerning fashion and style are of utmost importance, what could be more life changing than being able to determine if your high heel purchases are going to be comfortable prior to purchase!

Thanks to the peeps at She Finds.com I  share their 2 second trick to determine if your heels are going to be comfortable . I mean seriously….2 seconds. I’m in and so will you be after reading this: Enjoy!

Buying new heels is always dicey. Especially if you buy them online or can’t try them on in the store–you have no idea of knowing whether they’ll be the most comfortable shoes in the world or if they’ll be horribly painful and wreak havoc on your feet. Some shoes that you assume would be comfortable, like low heels or wedges, can turn out to be the worst culprits. You just never know! Or–that is, until right now when I’m going to drop the most amazing truth bomb on you: there is a way to tell if heels are uncomfortable just by looking at them. This 2-second trick is a game changer and every shoe lover should know it.

What is it? It’s all about the distance from the sole to the heel. The longer the distance (ideal: 3cm or greater), the more comfortable the shoe will be. As Glamour points out, this is because this distance dictates the pitch (read: incline) of the shoe. The shorter the distance (2.5 cm or less), the higher the pitch and the more weight that’s transferred to your toes. Ouch!

So, when buying new shoes in store, ask the salesperson for a tape measure and actually measure this distance. You will get an immediate read on whether they’re comfortable or not. (Don’t forget to ask if they run true to size, wear them around the store for as long as possible, and order your exact size).

If you’re ordering online and can’t psychically measure the shoe, what you can do is measure your computer screen and compare it to other heels on the same site. The heels with the longer distance from heel to sole will be more comfortable, and the heels with the shorter distance should be avoided.
