I cannot believe that we’re already celebrating Labor Day! Seriously??? Where did the Summer go?

Bearing in mind we are at the end of another season, I thought now might be the perfect time to review our Summer wardrobe before we pack it away and take note of any items we might be needing to replace or replenish for next Summer.

Items of note to review in your closet before the last hurrah of Summer sale shopping ceases might include:

  • Figure flattering Summer Dress (A simple white dress is always a good choice)
  • Floral Skirt
  • Shorts
  • Great fitting white pants
  • Swimsuit// Chlorine and salt water create havoc on a swimsuits.
  • Beach cover up
  • Summer handbag
  • Sandals
  • Sneakers
Likely Terry Dress @ Shopbop ($198.00 Sale price $99.00)

Labor Day Sales are the perfect time to review and replenish your Summer wardrobe for next year… Note to self when shopping at any time of year… only purchase item in the size you are now..not the size you hope to be.

Sale Shopping 101

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Christmas in July is officially a thing. A very big thing! In the past 5 days we have had two MAJOR sales open to it’s “Members Only.”

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access July 12-18

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has Early Access entry for it’s cardholders and an assorted number of selected influencers / fashion bloggers that promote Nordstrom with their list of “favorite items from the sale posted on their blogs and you tube channels.

Then there’s “Prime Day” on Amazon. Originally designed as a “holiday” to celebrate the birthday of Amazon, Prime Day has morphed into a 2 day extravaganza . This year the sale boosts over a million deals to their Prime “Members Only.”

All this sale shopping with limited access and a set amount of sale days to shop, bring about a “buying frenzy” where people can be glued to their devices sourcing and stressing to find the best deals possible.

If you’re looking to shop any sale and not feel deluged by the wide assortment of offerings available, I would like to suggest a little Sale Shopping 101.

Here’s a short list of things to consider in shopping and sorting through any sale to find the best deals for you.

  1. Make a list of things that you actually need. As we all know,needs are far different than wants. You “need” an item when it is essential or important to your way of living.
  2. Break down your list into categories: Technology, Home, Fashion, Garden….this will allow you to shop more quickly and efficiently.
  3. Compare BRAND item pricing on other websites to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
  4. Set a budget for what you can afford to spend on each item.
  5. Before the sale opens, put items that you are considering in your cart. This will allow you to edit down your selections and check out before the items are sold out in record time and keep you focused on what you really want to purchase.

Two Words…Shoe Sale

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

Alfani (Macy’s Private Label) 


  Carlos Santana “Starlet” Shoe  

Ah.h.h.h. The end of Summer and with that comes massive end of Summer sales -especially on shoes. 

Truth be told: A Glamour Girl can never have enough clothes, compliments or shoes.

Last weekend I just so “happened “to be in Macy’s last Saturday during ANOTHER one day sale  (which P.S. by the way started on Friday and went till Saturday evening-call me crazy but if you do the math that would be a 2 day sale…Right? Right! But, hey it’s retail and they are always messing with the numbers). Anywho-I came across these two pairs of sale shoes that had just the right amount of summer glam and would go perfectly with a number of dressy outfits..Originally priced out totaling over $200.00 for both pairs/I walked away from the counter after the 75% off and of course the $10.00 extra Macy’s saving (since I am a card carrying member)for the grand total of $34.78..

Shoe Sale (two of my favorite words)

Summer’s on Sale

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion

July….the time of year when everything SUMMER is on sale. This is the perfect time to purchase great summer staples (hence the Ann Taylor Ad above which P.S. by the way is the perfect place to pick up a pencil skirt,a great pair of classic capri’s or a simple dress that won’t go out of style by next summer). You can run through the malls at warp speed or cruise the web to find whatever your heart’s desire. Happy Shopping!

Might I suggest:

Seafolly Swimsuit @ Nordstrom .com (Animal Print will never go out of style-Promise).

Maxi Tee Dress @ Victoria’s Secret  Sale: $59.50

 Exotic Clutch @White House Black Market Sale: $34.99

Selima Sun for J. Crew Lou Sunglasses Orig $115.00 Sale $88.00

What’s your Favorite Four Letter Word?

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

If your favorite four letter world is SALE… then this Memorial Day weekend is going to be FABULOUS!!!! With the sluggish economy and gobs of fashionable finds on sale grab that Macy’s 15% off extra coupon, your Bloomies Preferred Customer card, your Neimans Last Call email and flock to the stores. Just one little reminder when building your wardrobe and expanding your closet…

Buy well…Buy Once.”

In other words don’t spend a fortune on trendy items pick them up at sizeable marked down prices. If you do have money to burn then… spend- spend- spend, on those timeless pieces that you will wear forever. Look for luxury fabrics, fabulous fit and designer details.
