When you’re spending $78 on designer jeans, you know you’re coming out ahead. I selected these jeans as a pick for a couple of reasons. Reason#1: There are no weird embellishments, no cuts, no gimmicks, these are just a pair of sleek, black skinny jeans that can be paired with an entire closet, if you should so desire. And again, at the aforementioned price of $78, you could do a lot worse. This is also part of Bloomingdale’s Friends and Family sale. Get yours here before sizes run out.

french-connection-dress-encrusted-roulaux

I’ve got to say, I am all over this friend’s and family sale at Bloomingdale’s especially when it comes to very cool items like this. This French Connection dress comes adorned with faux pearls, I mean you don’t have to even think about accessorizing, because it is pretty much done for you. I think the really awesome thing about this dress is that it begs to be paired with booties and I can say that often with dresses. Yeah, you can do the heel thing with this, but I say, if you’re going to go with a dress like this, you wear a cute pair of booties to give you a retro stylish look. This dress is available at Bloomingdale’s for $148.50.

I must be on some sort of shoe rampage today, because everything I am featuring is a shoe that I’ve purchased or will be purchasing.

The uneven nature of this tunic tells me that it has a super unique look. I love it because Bloomingdale’s has styled this just right.

It never hurts to get ready for the season ahead. Even if that means 3 seasons ahead.
