It’s the end of the world!

OK, not really, but at least my world is going to feel like that. Why? Well I’ll tell you, because I know you’re wondering why! I have decided 2016 is the year of living frugally, for me anyways. Now before you start rolling your eyes and think “ugh, another resolution post”, nope this is not one of those. I have just come to the Carrie Bradshaw realization that everyone, including my son, are saving their pennies and have bank accounts to show for it and all I have is a closet office full of shoes and bags. Gorgeous, to-die-for shoes and bags, but that’s it. So, I’ve decided 2016 is the year I start to invest in my bank account. Lord have mercy, I don’t know if I can do it, but like Yoda says “Do or do not, there is no try.” And who am I to argue with a Jedi Master? So here goes everything…into my bank account!

The Hopeless Romantic

Prabal Gurung for Target

Dress in Apple Red ($49.99), Crystal Stone Cutout Bangles in black and silver ($24.99), Bangles in First Date print/Dresden Blue, Calypso Coral print/black, Nolita print/Sulfur Spring ($16.99 each), Ankle-strap heels in Blazing Yellow, Dresden Blue**, black** and Apple Red** ($39.99 **Target.com exclusive)

Have you taken the Love Style quiz at Target’s website? Well I did and I’m a hopeless romantic. Go figure. 😉 I was actually surprised how accurate the result turned out to be considering that I had put this list together before I took the quiz.

I’m really excited for this collection to arrive in store and online. The pieces I’m after seem to be evenly split between “Target.com exclusive” and in store purchases which could be good or bad for Target. So long as they can handle the volume of people that will be shopping online at midnight I think the complaints will be low, because let’s face it, you’re always going to have someone who has to complain about something. It’ll also keep the poachers to a minimum so that there isn’t such a fiasco like there was for the Jason Wu collaboration (I hope). I may actually have to set my alarm and head to Target as soon as they open…or maybe not my husband may think there’s something seriously wrong with me if I wake up that early. Either way, one thing is certain my bank account is going to feel this one. FIVE MORE DAYS PEOPLE!!!

Look at what I spotted at Old Navy!

How cute are these wedges? I tried on a 6 and they fit, but if you plan on wearing them with tights or socks or if you’re a half-size then I’d suggest going up a size. The heel is also pretty short, my guess is they’re 3 inches (which is short for moi) ;-). Price tag says 29.94, but if you have Old Navy bucks and can wait a week they would be about 19.94. Anyone plan on picking up a pair?

The siren call of @lastcallnm…

Last Call by Neiman Marcus has been having a sale with select items an additional 30-65 percent off! I was then surprised to find that if you were in the store you received a coupon for an additional 40 percent off of one item on top of the 30-65 percent off! Love it! I found five pieces for the price of one! Stay tuned to see what I found…
