Weekend Update

Sale PSA: Some great items went on sale today! First is a light tweed/terry mix knit jacket from Caslon, perfect for layering and in three great neutral colors, now under $40, next is a thicker but still soft and cozy sweater scuba jacket from Vince in gray and black, now 40% off. A great armor print neoprene dress from Clover Canyon is now nicely under $200, and finally if you’re starting to layer up for fall, I’d check out these classic wool/cashmere shawls from Nordstrom – they’re a staple for me at work, in my car, on planes, at home – now under $80, 

1. I recently had a reader ask for a good wedding guest dress under $300, and I loved the one we found so much that I had to share.

The dress is by Tadashi Shoji, a brand which I’ve gone to throughout the last few years for gowns for both myself and friends. I like Tadashi because the brand’s gowns are usually nice quality, while still being affordably priced. The dress above is well under $300, and comes in a huge array of colors, sizes, and even petites!

I do find that Tadashi runs a bit larger at times, so I usually size down if I’m in between…just my experience, by the way.

I found her take on many different aspects of fashion refreshing, and found myself re-reading certain bits so I wouldn’t forget some plum pieces of advice. My personal favorites? She doesn’t get her happiness from collecting shoes, and she loves George Michael. What a woman! Continue Reading

A friend unexpectedly stopped by my place this weekend (well actually they kind of invited themselves up…that’s how you know it is a very close friend) and remarked that it looked like a clothing tornado had blown through. I…
