J CREW on GG




I heart J CREW and I hate to admit that I must have been checking J CREW web several times a day. And to memorize what Maureen was wearing on last Monday's episode "The Grandfather". I was stoked when I saw her outfit.


Alabaster Tweed Coat


Victoria Ruffle Cami

LIP GLOSS


I love Lip Gloss the way I love my Rose bud Salve and Mascara. I love CARGO where they have a time strip on this lip gloss. What I do is I write the month and yr I bought it or received it.


Then after 5-6 months I toss it. Similar to the timestrip you put on your ketchup or days ago timer you put on spaghetti jars in the refrigerator.



These are so cool. I still do the old fashion way of writing the day it was opened. Anyways, will go to Sephora and check this out.

Spring...

....has arrived!





Ahhhhh-choo. Yes, Spring, sweet spring at long last is finally here! Oh, I am so excited. The flowers have begun blooming like gerber daisies and daffodils and tulips. Of course there will still be snow BUT the worst cold is over.



Sure you're antsy to start spring cleaning or maybe you have been "spring cleaning". We've been purging and spring cleaning since the start of the year. Will post pics soon. This weekend has been Windy and in the 50's. But looking at this week's weather in the 70's. It is evident that Spring has sprung.

Happy Spring!

I went to ON and BR today for the Fam and friend event.
If you have not gone there yet, you have one more day tomorrow.
When I posted the Spring 2009 last yr. read here
Pamela Rolland was one of my favorite designs. The colors, the details and ruffles.
Bee-autiful!
Back to my ON and BR
I am sure you've noticed the different styles colors even fabrics
from BR.
New Creative Director Simon Kneen.
he's launching the new, great-looking,
eco-chic Heritage line, 95% of which is made
from sustainable fabrics and trim.
Here are some of BR's spring collection.



This jacket looks
different IRL.
It's too Star-Trek-y
for me. IMO.

I went home empty handed. And went to Target to check
for Miss Trish of Capri.
But I did not see any yet.
Patience...Patience...Patience...

Laundry

I have tons of errands tomorrow and I need to squeeze in some of the boys shirts for "bed sheets,linen laundry day tomorrow". I remember when Paul went to Japan for his MBA 5 yrs ago, one of the many things he told me was "How to fold a Shirt in less than 2 secs- Japanese style". My response: Ummm OK. I might have to do that tomorrow since I also go to the boys school on fridays. No taking my time, it's chop chop time. Nana, will you teach this to me next time we see each other? =)

GQ anyone?



Would you like me to get you a copy of the new GQ?

Modest...

.....and Stylish

Finding a "modest and Stylish" clothes are so hard to find especially buying it for Friends daughters. I remember telling my DH, it is just so hard to find something Cute and stylish, comfortable and yes COVERED. This article from USA today talked about how Modesty is the "new trend". Modesty is IN.

Even flashy Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld declared "bling is over" and noted the economy is prompting a "new modesty," in an interview with the International Herald Tribune this year.

And here's a letter from an 11 yr old.

"Dear Nordstrom, I am an 11-year-old girl who has tried shopping at your store for clothes (in particular jeans), but all of them ride way under my hips and the next size up is too big and falls down," she wrote, according to an excerpt on PureFashion.com.

Gunderson's story made national news, and Nordstrom responded with higher cut jeans — and more — when it realized hers was hardly a lone cry. "Around that time, a fair amount of people were looking for modest options," says Nordstrom spokeswoman Brooke White.

And here's the FUN and COOL part my favorite Stores

Anthro,J.Crew, Banana Rep. got high marks and thumbs up.

American Eagle, Anthropologie and Banana Republic got the Washington, D.C., group's highest ratings, while Delia's, J. Crew and Ann Taylor all got the Pure Fashion thumbs up elsewhere.

"J. Crew is my favorite store, " says Ashley Nowak, a 14-year-old Pure Fashion member from Alpharetta, Ga. "Almost all of the other stores today have booty shorts and tube tops, that are not only revealing, but also set an inaccurate image of what beauty is supposed to look like."

Oh so fun, I would love to have a Modest Fashion Show Themed party. Hmmmmmm

Browsing

I went to Target last night and I was just BROWSING. Making sure that "McQ" has not arrived in our neck of the woods. I have read here that it was already in. Anyway, like I said in my previous post that my computer is acting up and this post could not be found. About 3 weeks ago I went to Target and yet another "browsing" for "SPRING". And I found this. There were flipflops, gladiator sandals and thongs sandals arrived. And Merona flipflops on the Right
"almost" the same as my JCREW flipflops thatI got last yr.


I also found this.

Summertime in February


Yesterday was Elisa's baptism and we were there to witness it. She is so cute and such a good baby. She did not Fuss at all. NOT EVEN ONCE!!! She slept right before the "Baptism" and She did not cry. What a very cute,good and calm baby she is. Karen and I were telling Sharon that Elisa will be late to class just like her Mom =).




It was a HOT Day yesterday and today.When I checked the weather yesterday it said 70's. Of course I did not change the City I was checking. When we left the party it was 88 deg. We were all wearing long sleeves and yes Suffer for Fashion.


They had a jumper and the boys were so Hot and Sweaty. They had an undershirt BUT because the undershirt was not nice we just removed the undershirt and folded the sleeves.Another lesson learned from experience =). Congratulations again Sharon, Anjo and Elisa.
