fashion friday. dresses, tights, and ankle boots. June 12, 2009

Okay, so I decided to present these outfits in a different way this time (and future times, probably), by using Polyvore to put the clothes into one cohesive image, rather than a million different pictures. Those pictures were extremely hard to format, and while I do not consider this way any better, in terms of aesthetics (on the contrary, I did like the find the other way better to look at), I do find it much, much easier to do. So there you go. This week I put together a cute, sleeveless dress, footed tights, and ankle boots for your viewing pleasure. Once again, these outfits are put together by category: under $20, under $40, and under $1000. The over $1000 category is way too impractical and works mostly for single items, rather than whole outfits, so don’t expect to happen any time soon. Anyway, onto the outfits!

under $20
All of the items above are priced less than $20. What you can’t see in this picture of those white (“cream”) tights is that they have a lace pattern on them that is quite nice. You can get them here, at Forever21, and they are on sale for $2.99. I think that three dollars for tights is lovely, don’t you? Next up, the dress. It’s $19.50 at Wet Seal, here, and comes in sizes small to large. Okay, so the deal with those boots? Newport News (those bastards…) do not have a picture of the shoe color that I chose from their website. What kind of retailer are they?! Disgusting… But, they *did* have a swatch of the color, which is what is in front of you now. Yeah, that purple color. Your job: imagine those boots, in that color. And get them here, for $17.99, and choose from sizes 5 to 10 and 11.

save $40
All of the items above are priced less than $40. These tights are so gorgeously purple (or “lily,” as Shopbop describes them…), and I love them. Get them here, for $36. They come in sizes small to medium/large (with two sizes in between, so go check it out). Next up, that lovely dress. Lace is a love of mine, of course. I think the contrast of girly and down-to-earth (from the boots) make for a nice combination. Get it here, at Forever21, for $22.80. The dress comes in sizes extra small to large. I really like these boots, as well, although I know that some of you dear readers won’t. They are cowboy boots, after all. You can buy them here, in sizes 6 to 9, from Wet Seal.

under $1000
All of the items above are priced less than $1000. I like this outfit most of all (at least, I think so… I really like all of the outfits, though), mostly because of the boots and the dress. So retro! Anyway, the tights are available here, at Shopbop, and they come in size 4 (which I take to mean the regular tights sizing and not juniors or misses sizing…). Yes, they are foldover, but who’s really going to see that when you have that dress on? Also, I know that these only have one size available right now, but I’m so sure that that will change soon that I decided to post them anyway. So there. The dress is from Anthropologie (after that disgusting romper, I needed something to remind me how awesome this store is most of the time…), and you can find it here, for $128. It comes in sizes extra small to large. Finally, those fabulous boots! Look at that bow! Get them here, at ModCloth, for $42.99. You can choose from sizes 5.5 to 9, and you better. Who better to wear these shoes than one of my readers? Oh, right. ME.

thrifty thursday. cute flats. June 11, 2009

Filed under: shoes. — stylistanumberone @ 6:21 am
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Today for your thrifty pleasure, I have five nice pairs of flats, which are all under $20. I love flats. For one, they are very comfortable (well, only if you actually buy comfortable ones…) and can look both casual and dressy. Ah, the wonders of the modern shoe! Anyway, here they are, ascending price order:

Max Rave - Women's Bow Flats

max rave - women's bow flats.

First off are these super cute (and super cheap) bow-featuring, heart-printed (on the inside, at least) lovelies. Which you can find these pink ones here, at Walmart, for $13. They come in four different colors, though: the already-mentioned pink (sizes 6 and 7 to 9.5), blue (sizes 7, 8, and 9), gold (sizes 6 and 8), and black (sizes 6 and 7 to 9). Why, yes (I do love parentheses).

Product Image

These ones look so damn comfortable! Can’t you imagine slipping them on and feeling better about the day ahead because at least your shoes won’t hurt you? Or is that too depressing? Regardless, these shoes would probably make someone ridiculously happy. They come in sizes 5 to 10 and 11, and you can get them here, at Target. That happiness will cost you $17.99, though.

SILVER

mary jane ballet flat.

I really like that strap across the middle of these shoes. It reminds me of the kinds of shoes that dolls wear, which I find adorable. Hopefully, you do, too. Find them here, at Wet Seal, for $18.50. They come in this silver and a nice black, and the sizes available include 6 to 9 and 10.

jenny sequin ballet flats.

Okay, I understand that many people may not like the dazzling shoes that lay here before them, but hear me out: um, yeah, I don’t really have an excuse. Never mind, then. Get them here, at Target if they don’t scare you. For $18.80, you can choose from sizes 6 to 10 (with no half sizes in between) in this great gold color.

patent cut out flats.

Lastly, I have these interesting and dressy flats from Charlotte Russe. They remind me of summer and garden parties. Want some of that in your life? Buy them here for $18.99, in colors white, black, and yellow. They come in sizes 6 to 10 (once again, with no half sizes in between). Go forth and prosper in shoes.

sunday shopping spree. strappy heels. May 24, 2009

Filed under: shoes. — stylistanumberone @ 6:48 am
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

Hello, dear readers! This week, I have found five different pairs of shoes, that are mostly black (except one), and none cost less than $20. I guess all that material is expensive? I don’t know. Many of them remind me of those Dollhouse shoes I wrote about earlier but, you know, less expensive. Here you go:

BLACK

studded wrap platform heel.

These high-heeled loves are from Wet Seal, here, for $26.50, as the cheapest in the bunch. They come in sizes 6 to 9 and 10. Four and a half inch heel! Outrageous…

Product Image

I’ve had these shoes in my bookmarks for awhile, so I was surprised to see that Target still had a lot of sizes. Good job with supply, Target! Unlike some other places… (Charlotte Russe, I’m looking at you.) Get them here, for $26.99, in sizes 5.5 to 10 and 11, which is pretty wide ranged, if you ask me.

jada cage stiletto.

With way more straps than the rest and a heel that’s more than five inches, these shoes are easily the most extragavant in the bunch. Get them here, from Forever21, in sizes 6 through 9, with no half sizes in between. They also cost $29.80, which is what you’d expect from Forever21, with their weird prices.

studded peeptoe pumps.

Yay! The only brown pair! Look at those studs. Many people may not like the brown and gold combination, but I find it refreshing, next to black and silver ones. For $32.80, you can pick from sizes 6 through 9 (again, no half sizes), here, at Forever21.

Pleaser Women's Lip-153 Sandal

pleaser women's lip-153.

Last in the list, are these five inchers, from Pleaser, a brand known for their sexy shoes. You can find them here, at Shoes.com. They are $44 and come in sizes 5 through 16 (!!!) with no half sizes. Good luck walking in them, though.

fashion friday. graphic tee, vest, shorts, and necklace. May 22, 2009

So… another feature is born! I decided that I have way too many clothes in the backlogs of my bookmarks for this blog, so the easiest way to get rid of them quicker is to post them en masse. Every friday, I will post three different outfits that I have put together from the three categories that I use most: under $20, under $40, and under $1000. Each piece in the outfit will reflect the category, for you, the discerning shopper. This week, I decided to put together a combination of a graphic tee, a buttoned vest, shorts, a necklace, and shoes that matched the shirt. I would definitely wear each outfit, so decide your budget… I hope you like the outfits!

BLUE

embelished winged cross tee.

crochet back vest.

cross & coin drape necklace.

corduroy shorts.

neon flats.

kadjkfajdaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa All of the items above are less than $20. I really like how this outfit turned out. I don’t think that it’s too matchy-matchy at all, but maybe you’ll disagree…? You can find the tee (yes, I know “embellished” is spelled wrong, but I just wrote what Wet Seal had on their website. Pathetic…) at Wet Seal, here, for $12.90, in sizes extra small to large. The vest is from Windsor, for $13.98, here. It comes in sizes petite (which, I believe, is smaller than small) to large. Regardless of the picture, it is in black. The necklace comes from Forever21, here, for $7.80. The shorts are from Charlotte Russe. Buy them here for $16.99, in sizes 1 through 13. Lastly, the shoes. Those gorgeously-colored shoes… Get them here, at Forever21. They are $18.80 and come in sizes 6 through 9, with no half sizes in between.

All of the items above are less than $40. I know that this outfit, with its wide range of purples, will not appeal to everyone, but I absolutely love the top that I chose for it. Skulls = my obsession, remember? Of course you do… Well, to recreate this outfit, buy it here, at Plasticland for $25. The shirt comes in sizes small, medium, and large. Next, the vest can found here, at ModCloth for $34.99 and also comes in sizes small, medium, and large. The necklace you should buy is the “mist” color (it’s actually white.) for $20, here at Plasticland. Those cute shorts can be found at LuLu*s for $24, here, in sizes 0 and 3 to 11. Finally, those cute shoes! Don’t they really remind you of the Jetsons for which they’re named? Grab them at ModCloth for $34.99, here, in sizes 6 through 10, with no half sizes available.

All of the items pictured are priced less than $1000. Like the outfits before this one, I love this shirt, as well. Look at that gorgeous plum color! And that crazy-ass dog! Fascinating… I think the white vest really makes it pop out at you, too. So… get it here, at Bluefly. For $69, you can get it in sizes extra small to extra large so that you, too, can have a sequined dog on your chest. Next, the white vest, which you can buy at Urban Outfitters, here. It comes in sizes extra small to large, for $48. The necklace, which I also adore, is $135 at Bluefly, here. Those black shorts are available in sizes 24 to 32 for $133 at Shopbop, here. Last, the shiny shoes are also from Shopbop, here, on sale for $227.50 (An odd number, I know. Are they taking tips from Forever21?). They are available in sizes 5.5 to 9 and 10.

Well, that’s it, dear readers! I hope you enjoyed my new feature, and look forward to next week’s equally fun outfits!

thrifty thursday. ruffled shirts. May 21, 2009

Filed under: clothes. — stylistanumberone @ 6:30 am
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Did anybody have a doubt about my love for ruffles? …I didn’t think so. Anyway, this “Thrifty Thursday” post will soon become routine. In short, everything written in a post like this one will be under $20, hence the “thrifty” part, of course. This week, I found a lot of ruffled shirts (nine, in total.) from various places (but mostly from Forever21, where the ruffle rules apparently). Unsurprisingly, a lot of them are white, but I did find some gorgeous colors, with equally interesting names, such as “aqua” and “sage,” which is really code word for “light blue” and “teal,” respectively. Go figure.

rosy ruffle top.

First up, is this little number that features puff sleeves and an interesting trim that Forever21 has taken to calling “crochet-like bubble edge details” (but I’m guessing they didn’t know what to call them, really). Regardless of the weirdly-named detailing, this shirt would be a great addition to any wardrobe. Buy it here, at Forever21 for $15.80 in yellow, pictured, and “ivory” (white, for all you non-elephant-poachers). Both comes in sizes small, medium, and large.

sleeveless ruffled blouse.

Next, I have this tuxed-like shirt to show you dear readers. The ruffling in this shirt is considerably less eccentric than many of the pieces featured here, but it has the addition of a waist tie that I really like (you know bows and me…). Buy it here, at Papaya, for $15.99, in sizes small, medium, and large.

ruffled cap sleeve top shirt.

This beauty is next. Look at all those ruffles! Except, this is nothing. Look down at the bottom of this post, and then you’ll know how many ruffles Forever21 can stuff on their blouses… It is a very classic-looking ruffled shirt that will lend itself well to an accompanying vest, especially because no ruffles lower at the waist means no weird bunching under said vest. Buy it here, at Forever21, for $17.80. Sizes include small, medium, and large.

sheer ruffle top.

Oh, no! Another white top! I told you this would happen, didn’t I? Well, don’t despair; most of the rest have other colors to choose from. Anyway, this one here is definitely ruffly. I mean, look at that fan detailing in the collar! Gorgeous… Buy it here, at Forever21, for $17.80. This white top comes in sizes small, medium, and large. Am I sensing a pattern here, Forever21? Do they not have such sizes as extra small or extra large? How droll.

AQUA

smocked waist blouse.

This shirt is one of my favorites. Partly because of the color and partly because of the little ruffled cap sleeves. Adorable! Buy it here, at Wet Seal, for $18.50, and choose from the aforementioned aqua, which is pictured, and black. Unlike Forever21, Wet Seal offers its customers sizes extra small to extra large, in both colors.

ruffle button top.

I like that this shirt would look really great with a wide black belt around the waist. The collar is also lovely, and I adore those little buttons at the top of the collar and at the bottom of the keyhole. It’s $18.99 here, at Charlotte Russe. This top is the last white one, which is the only color it comes in, but you can get it in sizes small, medium, and large.

crepe cotton ruffle top.

What a great color! I’m lusting after it already. Except… the crepe turns me off just a wee bit. The texture can be unsettingly, like old people skin, but other than that disturbing fact, I really do like it. If you do, as well (and don’t mind the old people skin), get it here, at Forever21 (where else?) for $19.80. It comes in the pictured sage, yellow, and white, which all are available in Forever21’s only three sizes (apparently): small, medium, and large.

sheer pinstripe ruffle top.

Like cotton candy? Then, you’ll love this shirt. Isn’t it just the epitome of cotton candy clothes? I assure you, dear readers, it is. Lightly striped and immensely ruffled, this shirt is fantastic. The smocked waist will also help to give an illusion of an hourglass figure, which is always nice. Get it here, at Forever21 (stop hating! the last one is from there, as well…), for $19.80. Buy either the featured peach (pink) or cream (white) in sizes small, medium, and large.

ivonne ruffle front shirt.

Okay, last one! It seems as if Forever21 just crammed as many ruffles as they could onto this shirt. It’s like some sort of ruffle factory… Do you think that they keep appearing the longer you wear it, and before you know it, they’ve eaten you? …shudder… Maybe I wouldn’t mind, though… I do love those ruffles! Anyway, enough horror stories. Get this ruffle monster here, at Forever21, for $19.80. Both the orange, pictured, and the white come in small, medium, and large. Way to break the mold, Forever21… NOT!

sunday shopping spree. coats. May 10, 2009

It’s that day of the week again! I love the Sunday Shopping Spree because it gives me an excuse (even more than this blog gives me) to hunt for cute things that fit a theme. Yay! Okay, this week, I found nine different coats for you, dear reader, from five different retailers. Rejoice in the coat! Yes, I realize that it is very nearly summer, but you could always buy these coats in preparation for winter. Right? Right! On to these lovelies, in ascending price order:

CHOCOLATE

twill self belt jacket.

Well, considering the name has “jacket” in it, you can guess that it is not really a coat but is quite cute nonetheless. This, um, jacket is $22.50 here at Wet Seal and comes in three colors: chocolate (or brown, which is pictured above), khaki, and white. You can buy khaki or white in sizes small, medium, and large and chocolate in small.

houndstooth wool swing jacket.

Yeah, yeah. I realize that this one also has “jacket” in the name. Whatever. It’s adorable. I love swing jackets. So there. If you want this cute thing, go here to Forever21, where it is $29.80 (again, with their weird prices). The site only carries this one color, in sizes medium and large. Very retro. Also, it probably won’t keep you warm. Just saying…

Wuthering Heights Jacket

wuthering heights jacket.

This next one definitely won’t keep you warm and is called a jacket, as well. And looking down the list of things to post, only one item is actually called a coat. Maybe I should have called this Sunday Shopping Spree “Jackets,” instead? Oh, well. I don’t really care to change it. Moving on! I love the name for this piece: Wuthering Heights Jacket. I hated the book, but the name calls up images of romanticism, which is also true for this jacket. Just look at. Super cute. Buy it here, at Modcloth, for $47.99 in sizes small, medium, or large.

Fawn Brown Canvas Bib Jacket by Tulle Clothing

fawn brown canvas bib jacket.

Yes, another jacket, under the guise of “Coats.” I hate you all. Anyway, this deer-colored (Get it? Fawn? I crack myself up.) jacket is quite nice, and you can find it here, at Plasticland for the not quite so nice price of $56. The site says that the jacket tends to run small, so check out their size chart before you buy. This jacket comes in sizes extra small to extra large, so availability shouldn’t hold you back.

Green Cord Cropped Swing Jacket by Tulle Clothing

green cord cropped swing jacket.

Oh, my goodness, another swing jacket! How did that get there? The swing jacket fairy must have dropped it here… It would be a shame not to tell you where to find it, now wouldn’t it? Yes. Of course. So… buy it here, also at Plasticland, in this gorgeous green color that comes in sizes extra small to medium. Once again, the site says that this item runs small, so I’m sorry for those readers who wear larger than a medium. Feel lucky, though, that you don’t have to spend $59 on this swing jacket and go buy that houndstooth one.

in the city jacket.

Okay, so even though this caption says, “jacket,” it really means “coat.” Look at it. It’s obviously a coat, right? Right. If you want to buy this misnamed black coat, get it here, at Cutimus for $68 in small, medium, or large. Look at all those buttons… and the bell-like sleeves… and the sash… Le sigh.

Polka Dot Retro Cropped Jacket by Tulle Clothing

polka dot retro cropped jacket.

Fine, this one deserves the jacket name, but I swear it’s the last one in the list that is a jacket and not a coat. Does that make you feel better, dear readers? I hope so. Buy this adorable polka-dotted charcoal jacket here at Plasticland for $86. You can get it in sizes extra small to large, which should be true to size.

Magical Mystery Tour Coat

magical mystery tour coat.

Finally! The one true coat in the list. I know you’ve been waiting for it, and isn’t it gorgeous? Look at that magnificent color! It’s almost blinding how purple this Magical Mystery Tour Coat is. The name even goes with the color, doesn’t it? Buy it here, at ModCloth, in sizes extra-small to large, for the magical price of $99.99. Maybe all those nines are somehow special and mysterious? In the my-money-is-gone-before-I-knew-it kind of way.

Notre Dame Bell Trench

notre dame bell trench.

Lastly, a coat that is called a trench. Oh, well. It has a pretty, retro feel to it, and you can buy it here at ModCloth for $104.99, which will remind you of Notre Dame and why you didn’t go there in the first place. Private schools are so expensive… This coat comes in sizes extra small to large and is definitely worthy of that bow.

sunday shopping spree. chandelier earrings. May 3, 2009

Filed under: accessories. — stylistanumberone @ 11:20 pm
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

Okay, folks. Today is the day that I present more than one awesome fashionable thing to all you readers out there. I found six different pairs of chandelier earrings on six different sites for your viewing (and possibly, buying) pleasure. I think that chandelier earrings are really classic-looking and can brighten up any outfit. Without further ado, here they are, in ascending price order:

SILVER

filigree chandelier earring.

This pair is from Wet Seal, and you can buy them here for $6. They only come in silver but are a nice addition to any jewelry box.

evelyn chandelier earrings.

These gorgeous earrings are from Forever21, and you can buy them here for $8.80 and in two different colors: this black and a weird-looking yellow that might appeal to the bright and cheery populace of the world. Definitely not me.

Our next pairs hail from Urban Outfitters, and you can find them here. Since the style you receive depends on the color that you choose, I decided to show you both of the colors. The left one is silver and the right one is burnished gold. They are both $9.99 and on sale from $24. An item that is more than 50% off! I patted myself on the back for that one. No worries.

Mardi Gras Earrings

mardi gras earrings.

The fantastic earrings above are from Modcloth, here, and they only come in gold. Look at that magnificent craftmanship! Sadly, you have to pay extra for shit that good, and the price for them is $11.99.

ancient tree earrings.

I’ve never shopped at Anthropologie before. Namely because of their pricey nature. So it’s no surprise that these earrings I found there are $28. They are very pretty, though, and you can buy them here in gold or silver.

earrings

fringe chain and charm earrings.

I really like this last pair, too, but because I found them at Express, they are also very pricey. Coming in at $29.50, you can buy them here. Express is also having a sale right now: buy one and get one 50% off. Good luck finding something else!
