Summer Statement Necklace Giveaway | #sp Kisspat Boutique

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.

Recently I had a conversation with a few girlfriends who admitted that they didn’t like wearing costume jewelry and preferred to only wear a small gold chain around their neck. You guys know that is not the case for me as I love wearing costume jewelry especially large rings and bold statement necklaces.  There are several reasons why I like to wear them but the number one reason is that they can add pop to a casual outfit or to a plain LBD.

Statement necklaces can also flatter your face and they look great in pictures. Being the frugal fashionista that I am, you know that I don’t spend a lot of money on anything, especially costume jewelry so when I discovered Kisspat Boutique I was happy that it was in-line with my budget. Kisspat Boutique offers inexpensive jewelry and accessories and they ship worldwide.  They also have weekly giveaways and 10% off your first order.

This Summer Statement necklace also comes in several other colors and if you want to see more of what they have to offer, check out their blog at Fortheloveoftrend.com or on Facebook and Pinterest

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday!

I love all jewelry especially necklace and earring sets because they can really jazz up an outfit.  You can put on a colorful statement necklace with a t-shirt, a sweatshirt or even dark clothing and the whole outfit appears brighter and a little bit dressier. The matching earrings takes the guess work out of what pair to wear especially when it’s early and you are rushing to work, as I normally am.

I actually did not plan on wearing a necklace this morning but then remembered this set that I received from Majestical Jewelry to review. Majestical Jewelry Review

 

Hopefully we’ve had the last snow storm of the year because the days are getting longer and soon the weather will get warmer.  I’m trying to wear as many winter items as possible all while thinking Spring can’t come soon enough.

Majestical Review

This lime green scoop neck top is enhanced by the sapphire blue stones in the necklace – what do you think?

Midnight Velvet | #Giveaway #ad

Disclosure:  I received this item free of charge from Midnight Velvet.  No monetary compensation was received or offered, all opinions are 100% my own.

Growing up in Dover I remember getting excited every time a Midnight Velvet catalog came in the mail.  As soon as one arrived my grandmother and I would snuggle up on the sofa and flip through each page.  She loved the large colorful church hats, and I loved the shoes, jewelry and decorative tops.  I liked seeing the beautiful clothing the models wore, but always secretly wanted an animal print bedroom set, however, I knew my grandmother would have said, “no”.

Midnight Velvet Catalog

 I still love looking through the pages of a Midnight Velvet catalog, and now I have an opportunity to review a product from their Spring 2014 catalog.  Of course I thought of my grandmother, knowing she would have been excited for me and wished I had chosen one of those big, colorful church hats.

Monte Carlo Gold Caftan However, for this review, I selected the Monte Carlo Gold Caftan.  It arrived in a zebra print box which I’ll definitely re-purpose later.  I loved that it was exactly as pictured in the catalog and fit perfectly.  The Caftan is two pieces with a machine washable polyester tank underneath.  Extra sequins are included for the nylon top which only needs to be spot cleaned.

The Monte Carlo Gold Caftan is perfect for a night out on the town with hubby or perhaps to a special church event which I know my grandmother would have liked.

Midnight Velvet

Midnight Velvet has fresh new Spring confident styles for a beautiful you and your home.  Check them out on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, YouTube,  and Pinterest, and be sure to follow their Beauty Blog for the latest fashions, styles and trends.

I am also excited to announce that they have offered to give one my readers a $50 Midnight Velvet Gift Certificate.  

This Rafflecopter giveaway begins today and will end at midnight on March 15, 2014, so hurry up and enter.

Once you take a look at MV’s online catalog, come back and leave a comment as to what item you would purchase if you won the $50 Gift Certificate.  

Have a Blessed Day – No stress in the New Year!

Dress for Less on NYE

Hello Friends and Happy Kwanzaa!

I trust you all had an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas and that you received everything you wanted.

Today is the first day of Kwanzaa and the first principle is Umoja or “Unity”.  As you go about your day I ask that you spread a little kindness with a smile or a simple “how do you do”.  This can make someone’s day brighter because we are all in this crazy mixed-up world together!

kwanzza

The last day of Kwanzaa is January 1st and if you have plans of going out for New Year’s Eve you’re probably in need of a new outfit.

As a stylist with the Goodwill 2014 Runway Show I’ve had the opportunity to pull together outfits for the various models. I’ve also pulled some dresses for the show that I think would be great for a New Year’s Eve event.

Dress for Less on NYE Dress for Less on NYE Dress for Less on NYE Dress for Less on NYE 127

All of these dresses were under $20.00, most were only $5.00, so if you broke the bank at Christmas you can definitely save money for New Years.

Dress for Less on NYE 144 Dress for Less on NYE 146 Dress for Less on NYE Dress for Less on NYE

Dress for Less on NYE 153

Whether you’ll be dancing and prancing or just sitting and staring at others on the dance floor, you’ll look good doing it in a new dress or gown from Goodwill. Accessories such as new shoes, scarves, jewelry and handbags can also be found at your local Goodwill.

Dress for Less on NYE 154 Dress for Less on NYE 157 Dress for Less on NYE 159 Dress for Less on NYE Dress for Less on NYE Dress for Less on NYE 166 Dress for Less on NYE Dress for Less on NYE 170 Dress for Less on NYE

As you can see, several of these dresses and shoes are new with the tags still attached.  There are definitely bargains to be found at Goodwill and you’ll be giving back and helping others in your community not only with your purchases but with your donations as well.

So what do you think, will it be a “Breakfast At Tiffany’s” or “Sex in the City” type of night?  

Have a wonderful time and be safe!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Flea Markets & Swap Meets

Would you consider yourself a Flea Market Fanatic or Swap Meet Maniac if in every state you visited you had to seek out one?  

I wouldn’t but I love finding them in my state as well as others that I visit.  The first discovery was in 1976, the year we moved from New Rochelle, NY to Dover, DE and it was Spence’s Bazaar.  As a family we bought and then sold every Tuesday and Friday during the summer.  Buying fresh vegetables, clothing, jewelry, books, and games at a Flea Market was awesome and cheap!  Making money selling at a Flea Market was also awesome, however, my first experience wasn’t so positive.  I sold several cases of 1950’s and ’60’s Barbie Dolls with clothing and accessories to a women for $5.00 – I didn’t know, but she knew that she had ripped me off!

Tayair and I were there in September (here)

In college during the 80’s I discovered Cowtown Flea Market across the Delaware Memorial Bridge in Pilesgrove, New Jersey.  It was the place to go for sneakers, knock off designer bags, tight Sergio Valente and Jordache jeans as well as items you needed for your dorm room before heading back to campus.  As a matter of fact hubby and I had our second date there, shopping then eating sausage sandwiches at the counter was where I fell in love with him, a man after my thrify heart!  I’ve also gone to some fantastic Swap Meets in California, New Jersey, Maryland and Virginia.

Even while vacationing in Florida we always dedicate one day to visiting Flea Markets and Swap Meets.  Malik looks for watches and has a pretty nice collection, when he was younger it was model cars of which he has a large collection.  Hubby would seek out new ties for work, me shoes and purses, and Tayair T-shirts.  During President Obama’s run in 2008 we must have purchased a dozen different styles of campaign T-Shirts.

In the ’90’s, and during our early years of marriage we would rent space at New Castle Farmers Market.  Selling surplus household items as well as those tight jeans and barely-there club dresses with hubby practically giving those away – lol!  Now as a couple we go for fresh veggies, vitamins and herbal teas, boy how times have changed!

JC Penney Clearance Sales

Do you remember my previous post about the clearance sales at JC Penney?  Did you go?  If not, I suggest you go there as soon as you can.  Today I went back to return the $5 skirt and ended up getting 2 more, a Worthington black and white tweet and a pencil skirt; a patterned scoop neck top and a Comfort Revolution sports bra for a grand total of $12.00!

There are $3/$5/$10/$12 and $14 clearance racks in every department, men/women and children clothing, jewelry, accessories, shoes, purses, lingerie, housewares, etc.  If you need a last minute Valentine’s Day gift, get to the mall with a quickness  because you will definitely get more for your money!

These pics were taken when I stopped in last month.
