Spied: J.Crew Wedding & Party for a steal

If you live in the greater Salt Lake City area, I discovered something everyone should know. The Sugarhouse DownEast store carries discontinued J.Crew wedding and party dresses for a steal. The wedding dresses are $100, and the party dresses are $50! (There was an extra 30% off deal on them too, but I think it might have been the last day of that promo).

I stared at the most beautiful antiqued eyelet wedding dress for 15 minutes today, and wanted to buy it because it was amazing and my size. I'll just wear it around the house as I am already married and only intend to do that once. If someone is a size 2, go get that dress for me, and let me know.

If you are getting married, know someone getting married, or just need a LBD (and who doesn't need one of those?) this is the place to go.

Has anyone checked out the selection here? Bought a one of theses dresses? Leave a comment!

A couple of days ago an anonymous commenter pointed me to a DIY tutorial for this:

Want to know what it's made of? Two DownEast Wonder Tees! I am so excited to make one of these that I ran to the DownEast Warehouse to find two tees of the same color (which turned out to be more difficult than one might think).

If you want to learn how to make one for yourself, find the tutorial at Tea Rose Home. I'll let you know how mine turns out.

Spied: ON Ruffle Neck Cardigan

Holy smokes! I was just wandering around the Old Navy website and lookie what I found:

Want. Need. Must Have.

The best part? The new batch of subtle colors! Every time I go in the store I shake my head at the brightness of every item, and they finally toned it down just in time for my favorite new Old Navy item since... the ruffle neck tee? I like a ruffle, so sue me.

Judging on the fabulousness of this, if you want one, run (don't walk) to your nearest Old Navy.

Ruffle Neck Cardigan - Old Navy - $26.50

Spied: Rolling Fog & Ruffles Dress

I am in loooovvee with this:

and for $30, who wouldn't be in?

Rolling Fog and Ruffles Dress - Ruche - $29.99

Look for Less: Fiona Paxton Necklace

Do you guys ever watch 'Accidentally On Purpose'? I do, but I have to be honest, the plot is only so-so for me. The real reason I have watched is to see the main character, Billie, seamlessly navigate her way through maternity wear. She mixes maternity basics with pre-maternity sweaters and jackets, and I am just in love with her style (with child or otherwise).

A few weeks ago she was wearing the most amazing necklace:

I saw this feature in Entertainment Weekly, giving the brand and price of the necklace after the episode aired. Then, I stumbled onto this look-a-like:

Fiona Paxton "Sylvie" Necklace - Bloomingdales - $300
Sequin Strap Draped Necklace - Forever 21 - $14.80

What do you think of the look? How about the look for less? Leave a comment!

Everyone is looking for ways to help with the devastation left in the aftermath of Haiti's earthquake. I am sure that most of you have heard about the text campaigns through the Red Cross and Yele (Wyclef Jean's organization). As I was looking for different ways to donate, I came across an organization that struck a cord with me. It's called Architecture for Humanity. According to their website,

"Architecture for Humanity is a nonprofit design services firm founded in 1999. We are building a more sustainable future through the power of professional design.

By tapping a network of more than 40,000 professionals willing to lend time and expertise to help those who would not otherwise be able to afford their services, we bring design, construction and development services where they are most critically needed."

As I work in architecture, this seems like the perfect way to help. Much of this devastation wasn't just because of the magnitude of the earthquake but because of the lack of infrastructure in the country. There was a similar earthquake (7.0 on the Richter scale) in San Francisco in 1989, and as devastating as it was, only 63 people died.

Here is a list of other ways you can give (link):

1) Text "HAITI" to "90999" to donate $10 to the Red Cross. Apparently this only works in the US.

2) Text "Yele" to 501501 to donate $5 to Yele Haiti -- Wyclef Jean created this foundation to permanently improve the lives of the most impoverished in his home country of Haiti. Check out more on Yele Haiti.

3) Donate to Partners in Health (click here) -- PIH is already on the ground in Haiti and mobilizing their relief efforts.

4) Donate to charity:water (click here)

I hope you can all find a way to donate!

Old Navy: Extra 50% off Clearance

On Friday, I lost my wallet. In retracing my steps I ended up back at the restaurant where I ate lunch (where they had located my wallet, thank goodness). On my happy stroll back to the car, wallet in tow, I spied one of my favorite retail signs around, plastered in the Old Navy windows:

My husband and I went on what is best described as a 'spree'. The men's section was especially good this time (I am talking pants for $3-$10 and sweaters from $2-$5). The women's section was also good, it was just picked over in the smaller sizes. If you happen to wear M-XXL, please go down there and find a killer deal in my place, k? Oh and hunt the store for sneakily placed clearance items, they seemed to be in places other than just where you would think.

Also, Gigi over at Gigi's Gone Shopping mentioned in her post about this Old Navy sale, some hints for the coupons at Old Navy Weekly (I've written about this here). So, you could really get an amazing deal, if you stop by and get a coupon before you go.

Today is the last day for this sale, so don't wait.

Let me know if you find any sweet deals!

Thanks for reading,

Happy Shopping.

Excuse my absence this week, it's a bit hectic. I'll be back soon.


Spied: Shimmer Tank + New ON Clearance

I saw these in store awhile back and was intrigued, but they were picked over and full price.

Shimmer Tank - Old Navy - $5.99 (Orig. $10.50)

Now they are discounted, (along with A TON of new stuff - check out the Old Navy clearance section here), and available in pretty much every size. These two colors are shimmery, but there are also solids at several price points.

I bought a shimmery shirt from the Gap over the break and love it more and more every time I put it on... What are your thoughts on the shimmer? Leave a comment!

1 - Ombré Dots Cardigan - J.Crew - $88.00
2 - Dapple Dot Cardigan - J.Crew - $98.00
3 - Iris Cardigan - Fossil - $64.00

I am especially in love with that lovely lady in the middle. Isn't it so fantastic? Even if I would drop $100 on it, it's sold out in my size.
