designer deal: kate spade

I am loving writing the Friday Find. It’s making me excited to shop and this designer deal is one you won’t want to pass up. These fun Kate Spade clutches are more than half off, coming is at $35.

The bags are technically considered canvas cosmetic pouches, but are clearly meant to wear as the main attraction – they’re far to cute to keep inside your purse. Bags have a zip-top closure and are trimmed with leather.

Style Tip: Store your key essentials in the bag for quick trips and fun outings and toss in your bigger bag for work and days that require carrying more.

So which bag do you prefer?

Nice In Nude: Steal The Golden Globes 2013 Trend On a Budget

Wow! The stars really brought their style A-Game last night for the Golden Globes … well, not everyone, but that’s another story. There were a few popular trends going on – red, gowns with sleeves, fishtails hemlines, and nude tones. And, judging my this post’s title, you can guess that nude is our trend of choice.

So, who was looking nice in nude?  J.Lo (obsessed with her entire look – BEST DRESSED!), Megan FoxHayden Panattierre, Isla Fisher, and Amanda Seyfried, to name a few.

Nude is perfect for right now. It always looks clean (as long as you pick a shade very close to your skin tone), and is a nice break from all the glitter left over from the holidays.

So how can you wear nude off the red carpet?  Continue reading…

 Jen Ramos, the creative blogger behind MadeByGirl , is an entrepreneur, artist, and a graphic designer based in NYC. Seeing that she’s so artistic, Jen has a great eye and also happens to know how to score a deal. Check out her ascetically-pleasing style on budget.  – Jessie


Personally, I do most of my shopping online because it saves me time & money. If you look, there’s plenty of discount codes/ free shipping codes always floating the web. However, just because something is on sale, doesn’t mean you should buy it. I usually like to find trendier pieces on sale, or an item I’ve had my eye on for a while! Continue reading…

#4U2Read: Floral Crowns & Bar-Cart Cravings

Hi there and Happy Sunday. This week was struck with tragedy in Colorado. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the victims in the movie theater shooting and am deeply saddened by such an unbelievable event. It’s hard not to think about it and watch every piece of news on the matter, but sometimes you have to step away from all that heartbreak and give yourself a break. Hope these four blog posts I found add a little light into your day. We all could use a little distraction.


If you enjoy the articles below, be sure to share on Twitter using the hashtag #4U2Read.


Showoff your inner flower child. Floral crowns are in full bloom (check mine out from Freed Love in this vid). Now you can craft your own using a headband and some fun flowers. It’s very Lana-Del-Rey-esque – Fuji Files

Bar carts are all the rage in fashionista living (I’ve been dying to DIY one!) and here are ten essentiasl for a super-fab mobile mini bar. – Glitter Guide

Translucent accessories are trending and this DIY see-through clutch looks so luxe, I can’t even believe it’s a DIY. Bonus: this is modeled after a Charlotte Olympia bag I LOVED, but HATED the price ($995 -eek!). So, the fact that there’s an awesome how-to version is seriously exciting me. (Thanks Stripes & Sequins for linking to this! ) – Sprinkles in Springs

Are you a bride on a budget? Topshop now carries bridal by Richard Nicoll and everything is under $600. – The Budgetista

Wired: Eco-Chic + FREE BAG!!! You want?

In honor of Earth Day it’s time to conserve, especially when it comes to fashion! P.S. It def fits a skinny budget!!

BYOB: When you shop bring your own bag! A reusable bag is more sturdy and it’s good for the environment. Use it when snagging the latest new clothes, cosmetics or even groceries.

Another thing to bring when out and about? Your own cup! Those Starbuck’s cups are piling up and if you can help cut down the production and use, then why not? Starbucks rewards good behavior with a FREE cup of coffee or tea on Earth Day!

VINTAGE: As for your outfit staying eco-chic opt for vintage. This can mean buying a leather coach bag from a thrift shop for under $10.00 (my most recent purchase), or wearing your mom’s belts and earrings from the 1970’s – cheap, unique, and retro is very haute!

PAY IT FORWARD: Cleaning out your closet? If something is in good condition take to a consignment shop. They’ll sell it and pass it on to a new owner while you’ll make a few bucks. Whatever they don’t take can go to charity. Now others can enjoy your old favorite jeans as much as you did!

UPCYCLE: Hit up a thrift store and make old new again or rework what you’ve already got. Make a bracelet out of an old shoelace or use an old ice-cube tray to store cocktail rings. Check out on of my favorite blogs turned book P.S. I Made This. You’ll get inspired by this blogger’s stylish creations!

Get aFREE BAG that’s made from upcycled materials by Nahui Ollin that’s made from candy wrappers!!!
