I haven’t really taken advantage of the post-Christmas sales…the whole month of December seemed like one LONG sale (which is nothing to complain about!) but I personally have lost the motivation to go out and find bargains – I’m shopped out! The only 2 holiday sales I went to were ZARA and Bath & Bodyworks.
|ZARA TRAFALUC Black studded heels ($79 on sale for $49) ZARA WOMAN Nude leather heels ($99 on sale for $49)|
At ZARA I picked up these black studded heels and nude platform heels. Although I love bags and have a suitable one for every occasion – I can’t say the same about shoes. I have everyday shoes – but on the rare “going-out” occasion – I never have anything suitable to wear. Hopefully these 2 pairs will coordinate with most outfits. I love the studded details on the black pumps – and I’ve always wanted a pair of platform nude pumps. Though they’re VERY high, they are deceptively comfortable & the perfect shade to coordinate with my skin tone (plus $49 is a BARGAIN for real leather shoes!).
At Bath & Bodyworks I stocked up on Wallflowers – I use these around the house instead of candles because of my kids – love the 6 for $24 offer. I purchased a lavender pillow mist (not on sale) to turn bedtime into a spa experience. I also bought Physicians Formula Organic Wear Lash Boosting mascara from the drugstore. I’ve had success with the Revlon Grow Luscious Plumping mascara – so am hoping this would be a good alternative – especially as it has more natural ingredients and a better brush – will definitely post an update!
Don’t you love flipping through a magazine with friends: pointing out
your favorite looks and wishlist items, then tearing out pages for
future inspiration? Grab a mug of Green Tea and see what caught my
attention in this month’s Stylewatch magazine:
Taylor Swift on the cover.
Sandrah Hellberg, the new Guess model is so pretty – her makeup is very Ava Gardner, and she looks like Bridget Hall – one of my favorite models from the 90s.
Love this gorgeous hairstyle on Nicole Richie – shoulder-length with waves.
Was hoping to find these sandals at ZARA – aren’t they the most sparkly & beautiful shoes you’ve ever seen?
More sparkles – love how the bold skirt is toned down with a chambray shirt and tan accessories. (The skirt is by Rafaella)
Although I don’t always like her choice of clothes, Katie Holmes is just stunning. Love her hair, make-up and black shirt.
Cute gift idea – I adore strawberry-scented bath products and am going to check this set out the next time I’m out shopping.
Hope you enjoyed flipping through with me! Have you been shopping the Holiday Sales?
HAPPY NEW YEARS – here’s to an amazing 2013!
