Wardrobe Wednesday – Summer Flats

ShoeDazzle is sponsoring today’s discussion, however all opinions are my own. You already know.

As a self professed fab mom I have the habit of purchasing a ton of dress up clothing and high heels but on those days when I feel like dressing down I’m finding myself being more drab than fab because I haven’t done a great job of purchasing nice kick around clothing and shoes for those hot days when no one has time for a maxi dress and fancy shoes.

Lately I’ve been hanging out in shorts, tops and dresses but to my dismay my collection of flat shoes is minimal, and I don’t really count the numerous pairs of colorful flip flops that I have accumulated over the years from Old Navy. At this point I have worn my Tory Burch flats to death because I have few options and I’m in dire need of a pedicure….but that’s neither here nor there.

I am on the hunt for a few pairs of cute, function flats/flip flops/sandals that I can throw on and that are reasonable in cost. With summer here I really have no desire to drag two children into the shoe store so I am going to turn to some online options in the next few weeks to see what I can  get.

One online shoe retailer I have been peeking at is Shoe Dazzle. I recently completed their online quiz and they supplied me with a showroom of shoes based on the pictures that I selected during the quiz. ShoeDazzle is currently offering 25% off your first purchase made within 2 days of taking the online quiz. Get started here!

Here are my top four picks and you will probably see me rocking at least two pair of these in the very near future.


In the past I have been leery of these online shoe shops but I have been purchasing from them more often and ShoeDazzle has proven to provide timely shipping with true to size fitting with my past experiences. Recently Rachel Zoe has come on board to offer her style advice regarding on trend shoes for those who may be a little style challenged…and in my eyes Rachel is always on.

In addition to Rachel’s style advice there is a Daily Fix shoe which is sold on that day only with free shipping. Once you get the hang of things there is also a VIP Membership program that provides members with free shipping on all orders and exclusive offers for 10-25% off regular priced merchandise for $9.95 per month.

ShoeDazzle is proving to be  a great resource for online shoe shopping while helping women make good, on trend shoe purchasing decisions without dragging a girl friend along or a depending on a small child to tell you whether or not a shoe looks good.

Wardrobe Wednesday: Headwrap Tutorial & Giveaway

Being well put together sometimes comes down to merely your accessories and other small touches that make a huge impact.

Earrings, necklaces, and even headwraps can turn a plain t shirt and jeans into a major statement. I have been in love with headwraps for quite some time and could never quite get them to work for me until recently.

In a little over 2 minutes my headwrap, earrings, necklace and sunglasses provided just the right amount of fab to turn my drab outfit of a plain shirt, jeans and Uggs into something I like to call “kick around chic.”

I received a lot of requests to complete a tutorial on how I managed to get my headwrap to look like that and I against my better judgment have submitted myself to the Youtube gods and created a video. I kept it simple and hopefully it will help someone.

In the video I explained the key to creating this look is to make sure your scarf is sizable enough. Lucky for y’all the scarf I am wearing was made by one of my good friends who owns My Head Tie, and she has been generous enough to provide me with three scarves to giveaway. They are not only good for headwraps but double as night caps. Made of imported silk they work wonders in maintaining your hair while you sleep. They are even available in smaller sizes for children. They get better with every wash. Like the silk becomes so soft and pliable and I can’t really explain it but I freaked out when I lost mine. You know how folks are about their head scarves!!

The giveaway will run for one week. Three winners will be selected on November 21. Good Luck!!!

Wardrobe Wednesday…Chunky Knits

I love anything knitted or crocheted. I just do…and if I could take out the time to learn and stop making Etsy shops rich I might have more in my wardrobe.

Like the cardigan, a chunky knit instantly transforms the drab into fab. Its a statement piece that needs no competition. Jeans, a shirt and a nice stud earring is all you need to let a chunky knit steal the show.

I have had some luck finding the best chunky knits at  TJ Maxx/Marshalls and in the thrift store, oh and on Etsy.

Chunky knits are another fab and functional item that is worth adding to your wardrobe.

Wardrobe Wednesday…The Crossbody Bag

A cross body bag is fab and functional. Two “F” words mothers find acceptable. These double duty doses of fabulousness enable one to be ready to sprint, catch falling baby debris and carry tantrum prone babies at a moments notice.

Cross body bags fit the build when you need your hands free but still want to look hip and stylish.

I’m not completely sure but I am 5000% convinced the lady from the post here, had this in her shopping bag

 …and this one too

I would love to own that Tory Burch bag…both of ’em. As if. Do you own a crossbody bag? Do you love it?
