Passport Chic

I recently booked a trip to Europe on a whim.  My best friend and I will spend the first couple of weeks in March gallivanting through Paris, Barcelona and Florence – oh my!  Unfortunately I lost my old passport and had to go through the painstakingly annoying process of securing a new one.  My fresh new book arrived just this week and I can hardly wait to break it in!

The only thing missing was a personalized cover to give it a little pizazz.  Hooray for Etsy!

Passport Cover

For a total of $10 this cover was shipped to my door.  I love the bright colors and the fact that it will stand out in my handbag when I need to grab it and go.  For this passport cover, or to customize your own, check out HotPink Lemonade on Etsy.

J. Crew Warehouse Sale Success

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to attend my first ever warehouse sale.  Nestled in the snug community of University Mall in Chapel Hill, NC, J.Crew emerged and set up shop.  After waiting approximately 30 minutes in line just to enter the store, I was given a trash bag and told “good luck.”  I entered to find hundreds of boxes lining the walls filled with shoes, clothing and accessories.  This store housed a mecca of apparel complete with not only the expected “sample” sale items, but current season’s clothing, amazing shoes and quality items from the factory stores.  As an added bonus there were several pieces from the Madewell line, it was like icing on the cake.  I waited until the sale was almost over to check it out, by the time I arrived all items were an additional 30% off.  That means J.Crew pants and tops were only $7, and the jacktets and boots were a mere $35 !

I scored the following wellies which retail for $199 for only $35!

J. Crew Wellies

Bring on the snow in the South, I am ready this time!

If you plan to visit a local warehouse sale, here are a few tips:

  • Don’t bring a large purse; you will get tired of toting it around with all of your merchandise
  • Wear leggings; there are no dressing rooms and this is the easiest way to “try on” pants
  • Wear layers including a thin tank top; this way you can try on tops over your tank top without showing the goods
  • Bring a friend; there are no mirrors and it is next to impossible to tell how a shirt fits by simply looking down
  • Bring a camera/cell phone if you can’t bring a friend; worst case scenario you take pictures of yourself in the clothes and then decide how you feel about the fit of an item based on the photograph

Happy Hunting!

Filmmaker Tim Burton re-imagines the season’s creepy creations.  Although these images are from 2009, they are still some of my favorite Halloween fashion photographs.
