Splurge vs. Save

I'm a girly girl and love all things fashion, so when asked if I'd like to participate in a campaign on splurging vs. saving, I was delighted to join in on the fun.  Recently, I've been looking for a pair of nude pumps to add to my growing collection of shoes, so while searching in-store & online I found a beautiful pair of Christian Louboutin's Rolando Hidden-Platform pumps at Bergdorf Goodman for $795.  Pretty shoes, but a little on the pricey side.

So, I continued searching until I found a pair of Vince Camuto "Kain" pumps at Nordstrom for only $88.95.  SCORE!  What a great price, not only do I love my new pumps, I get compliments every time I wear them.  I'm so happy I didn't go with the Bergdorf Goodman pair.

Pack A Hat!

The Pack A Hat!, will be introduced this spring/summer and is an adorable tote-style miniature wristlet bag in cheerful summery stripes contains within it a stylish and matching packable sun hat with a 4 1/2 inch brim.  Like every Cappelli Straworld product, it's practical, it features superb craftsmanship and the best materials, it comes in beautiful colors, and looks fantastic.

In fact, with an affordable retail price of $25, the Pack A Hat! is just perfect for vacation and for everyday use, it's ideally positioned to appeal both to shoppers buying for themselves and to those looking for the perfect gift, appealing to all demographics.

Pack A Hat!, joins the Cappelli Straworld collection with almost 200 styles of resort and lifestyle bags and headwear, comes in two options:  Bag 869, where the 9 1/2 w x 7" high bag features bold horizontal stripes in 7 different colorways- black, red, toast, navy, green, lime, and turquoise, and Bag 870 with subtle, narrow stripes in natural, black, toast, white and royal.  Both versions feature toyo/polyester materials and have a matching solid 4 1/2 inch brim sun hat, the lined bags feature faux-leather wristlets, zipper closures and the beautiful Cappelli Straworld etched wood logo.
The Pack A Hat! is ideal for resort, beach or everyday, and easily slips into a beach bag or everyday handbag or tote.  So, women can take it everywhere, and it's always for whenever the sun comes out!
Also, the Pack A Hat! is UPF 50 plus because of their materials-no add on treatments, and there are huge health and beauty benefits as well ;)
What I loved about my Pack A Hat! wristlet & hat combo was it's affordable price, colors, fit, and how lightweight it was in my handbag.  Although I haven't been to the beach recently, I can't wait to use my Pack A Hat!
Here some photos of my Pack A Hat!...

The Nail Files: Only in Hollywood

For today's Mani Monday, I applied a red glitter gel polish from Red Carpet Manicure called Only in Hollywood.  Also, I'm so in love the red & glitter combination, that I actually look forward to doing my nails each wee.  Hey, maybe next week I'll try some designs, so stay tuned ;)

The Nail Files: Star Power

Hey everyone!  Recently I decided to remove my acrylics from my nails, so I could start doing my own nails for the summer. YEAH!  Also, I got tired of going to nail salons only to be waiting for long periods of time, so I bought the Red Carpet Manicure Pro Gel Kit.  I'M IN LOVE!  I used my gel kit for the first time last week and really liked my gel nails, so much so that I went back earlier this week and bought 3 more gel polishes.  Below is a photo of my Star Power gel manicure ;)

I received several samples of Kushyfoot foot covers and fell in love with all three sets.  My favorite was the Lace Foot Cover, not only was the foot cover cute, but it was easy to put on and I loved how my feet felt with them on.  I was able to wear my pumps a little longer without my feet hurting.  So, go ahead and try Kushyfoot you'll definitely enjoy them, like I did.
