1. ShopSavvy. Scan the barcode of that skirt with your phone and ShopSavvy will compare prices from over 20,000 different stores, while also providing product views.

2. Glamour Ask a Stylist. Not sure whether an outfit is appropriate or not? Need a little expert advice? Just snap a picture of what you’re considering wearing and send it to Glamour. Within minutes a stylist will respond with a yay or a nay. I LOVE this!

Then once you’d decided on the perfect pair of pattern pumps the app will forward you to an online store, or if you’re in 50 miles of the store they’ll call the store and the “concierge team” will tell you whether or not they have the item you’re looking for.

Texting Gloves - Would You?

I hate having to pull off my mittens/gloves in order to text so I usually just send something that looks a little like this: Wha aer ouy doig tonigt+

So why didn't I think of these gloves?!

These keeps you warm but expose your thumb and forefinger, your main texters. With designers like Roxy and Juicy Couture, these will keep you fashionable as well.

I didn't realize, once again, it had been so long since I wrote something in this. I am one of those recent college grads that basically has a full-time job trying to find a full-time job - so help a sista out! But anyways, CSN has asked me to do another review and I'm SO excited. Obviously with their 200+ stores, how could you not find something to love?

I've been looking for a really great pair of fall/winter boots and I know Shoes Got Sole will definitely hold what I'm looking for. Stay tuned for a review for my latest purchase!
Along with shoes, mailboxes, fitness equipment... check out these end tables. My mom definitely has her eye on this.

Summer on Sale! $20 and under...

We've still got a good month and a half, if not more, of quality sun shining down on us. But luckily, the fall clothes are on the racks and the summer clothes has been marked down. Here are some great finds for less than $20!

Rompers are hot for summer, and this one made by Roxy, regularly $43.99 is marked down to $19.97!

LOVE these cuffed capris! Only $19.97. Seriously ladies, check out Tillys!!

This bright skirt is a steal for only $9.97!

Dresses are all I wear in the summer. I love this one from Alloy. Ok, it's not under $20, but I love it, and I own it :)

Kathy Van Zeeland

Courtesy of CSN stores, I had the chance to review this fabulous wristlet made by Kathy Van Zeeland, one of my all-time favorite hand-bag designers.

While I own several Kathy Van Zeeland bags, this was my first wristlet and I was a little nervous because I'm sort of picky about the size of them. I like them to be big enough to carry everything you need for a night out, but still be small enough to just dangle on your wrist. They also must close correctly or everything will fall out when it is just dangling there!

Like all Van Zeeland bags, this was suprisingly roomy for a wristlet and I loved it! My roommate immediately asked if she could borrow it after she saw me with it. I definitely recommend you check out more purses from Kathy on CSN where they go for much cheaper than QVC, Macy's, Dillard's....
