6pm shipment arrived!
Anyone who knows me knows I have a bit of a shoe fetish. Anyone who works with me can you about my 15+ pairs of shoes under my desk….which are just “work shoes” & have nothing to do with the mounds I have at my apartment. 6pm.com feeds that addiction quite nicely.
6pm.com (same parent company as Zappos.com) has amazing deals. The site features an array of designer brands and boasts prices up to 70% off retail. They have “daily deals” on their homepage every day highlighting some of their best sales. They specialize in shoes, but have bags, sunglasses, apparel & an array of other items.
They (like many savvybrands) are on Twitter & provide their followers with ADDITIONAL deals I often find even more appealing & even better then what I see on their site. The recent tweet that caught my attention? KORS Michael Kors on sale for $24.95. A. Maze. Ing. They had other deals that day, as well, so here’s what I ended up with:
KORS Michael Kors wedges: $24.95 from $185 :)
While it’s still February & spring doesn’t technically start until late March, I’m ITCHING for spring to get here. Trend: I’m seeing a lot of colorful, small prints this year from some of my favorite designers. There’s a difference (& arguably a fine line) between fun florals & hippie garb (which has never worked on me). Here are some of my favorites:
DVF Spring 2010 Dress
This light & airy dress is from the DVF spring collection. I like how it starts mostly white at the collar with the floral print collecting around the hip, then transforming into a different floral pattern towards the hem. Continue reading
I love White House Black Market. They have beautiful, chic dresses & amazing jewelry, among other things.

They’re also offering free shipping through the end of the week when you purchase $125 or more.
$25 off your purchase of $125 or more coupon code: 9019
50 off your purchase of $200 or more coupon code: 9018
I’m seeing asymmetrical dresses popping up everywhere. Whether it’s a one-shoulder frock from American Apparel or an angled hem from Alice + Olivia, asymmetry is in. It makes even a seemingly “standard” dress more exciting. Here are a few I’ve found & love – priced from low to high:
Olivia Rubin One Shoulder dress: $37.93 from $129.32
I love the fun pattern & flirty sleeve on this Olivia Rubin dress. Adorable, right? It retails for $129.32 but is currently on sale on asos.com for $37.93. :)
American Apparel One Shoulder Dress: $42
American Apparel is known for soft, comfy, fitted basics. This cotton American Apparel is just that: it can be dressed up or down. It retails for $42 – not too shabby. Continue reading
Once again I loved the episode, almost as much as last week’s & the first week’s. Again, so many reoccurring themes, such as the importance of attention to detail and it’s hard to please someone when they don’t know what they want and have unclear (or unrealistic) expectations. Seems obvious….but it’s not always so easy, right?
My key take-aways from today’s show can be best-expressed in quote form:
- “If you can’t figure out who the top 126 most important people are then maybe you shouldn’t work here.” -Emily
- “What are you guys doing – you guys are scaring the f*ck out of me.” -Kelly
- “I’m the boss, I give you a paycheck & you’re suppose to give me work. -Kelly
- “NYC: where the girls are mean but oh-so-pretty.” -Kelly
AGAIN with the labels!! Poor Stephanie V. can’t catch a break. She doesn’t pay attention to details. Looks like it might be “peace out” for her.
Anyone else watching this? Am I the only one who thinks this show is so fantastic? :)
I love sale-perusing. Using Shopittome.com
, I found some fun items for spring. :)
It’s always good to be on the lookout for items that are fun together and (of course) on their own. Below are some leaning-towards-spring items I found via Shop It To Me
that look great together but are also versatile enough to be mixed & matched with tons of items you have in your wardrobe already – making them that much more valuable & the deals that much more worth it.
I created the image below using polyvore.com
. You can click the images for larger details about each of the items.
This outfit would look great with some light pinks & greens mixed in with the accessories or makeup tones. I could see a fun pink or green ring or green-rimmed shades completing the look.
Episode 2 started with Kelly’s team updating a seating chart 2 hours before a Chado show. They were dealing with of a nightmare not being able to have printed lists. The seating chart wouldn’t print correctly from their computer, so their list was 1/2 on the computer, 1/2 hand-written.
15 minutes before the show, the lobby is still packed. People were trying to take other people’s seats, lying about who they were, etc. Chaos. BUT It looked like they got everyone who was invites and suppose to be seated. Kelly: “Mistakes happen that are out of our control.” True. The show went really well, they got fabulous reviews but didn’t end up being featured in Women’s Wear Daily.
Result: They got fired.
Next they worked on a show for Genetic Denim. A mini-crisis arose when someone used $0.61 stamps instead of $0.44 stamps. A bigger crisis arose when interns put editor gifts into white paper bags with addresses written in Sharpie. Oops. Not exactly professional. Continue reading
