Orange You Glad You Wore Orange?

Hello, my little Pr0n Stars!  Don’t think I haven’t missed you.  Hopefully I’m back, as is the pr0n; we’ll see what form it takes.

Today I want to talk about broadening your color horizons.  A few years ago if you’d looked in my closet, you’d see all shades of blue, pink and purple.  I knew what looked good on me, but there were so many other colors missing!  Since then, I’ve been adding poor, neglected orange, green and yellow.  They may seem like tricky colors, but before we’re done you’ll all be running out to taste the rainbow.

Let me show you some of my recent purchases, and lusts (it wouldn’t be pr0n without lust).  It wouldn’t be Spring without a pair of cute little go-with-everything flats, but if you’re like me with very high arches (VERY), that may seem like an impossible task. Born Peony in Orange

UNTIL I found Peony, by Börn. Börn shoes are like the Birkenstock of shoes, with high quality that fit the contours of your feet.   Look at the adorable Peony flower that will tell everyone that you’re not afraid of color.

I picked these up in orange; other colors such as green, yellow, blue, black and pink are a bit harder to find. But what an easy way to add a pop of go-with-everything color to your wardrobe!

.

Kate Spade Tutti Frutti Maryanne

Speaking of easy pops of color – try a brightly colored handbag for spring!  PUT THE BLACK HANDBAG DOWN.  Din said so.  (My peeps call me Din.  That’s just how we roll.)

I’m always lusting after a Kate Spade (or 5) and throw in patent leather and I’m a puddle on the floor.  This Tutti Frutti Maryanne is on sale (ON SALE) for $228, including free shipping at Kate Spade.com.

You didn’t hear it from me, but there’s usually a sale on sale this time of year. Put yourself on a website’s mailing list to be the first to know about sales, get coupons, etc.

.

My new go-to website for cute clothes is Tobi.com.  They’ve got a great selection, and especially their sale stuff is super reasonably priced.  They ship usually same or next day, so if you live on the West Coast, you’ll get your stuff in a snap!  Everyone knows getting the stuff is part of the fun when you order online.

You know the feeling you get slipping into your favorite t-shirt? That’s the feeling you get putting on clothing by Velvet by Graham & Spencer – one of my new favorite brands for tops, sweaters and dresses. Their stuff is just to-die-for soft, and if you’re a bit on the smaller busted side, you’ll thank me in the heat of summer when you pull on their Lisbet Dress in Medium for $29! Scurry – this little melon darling won’t last long.

.

But not all of us can pull off such a dress, and most of us have lives wherein we’re in air-conditioning about 40 hours a week. For you, my little Pr0n Workers, I point you to your nearest Anthropologie for the Reed Shirtdress.

It’s sold out online in orange , but if you like it, hopefully you can find it in one of their brick and mortar stores once another pr0n star returns it (the horror!) or find it in a different color. It’s only $59.95 down from $118…

Which is a perfect segue (I used to be able to spell that word) to pimp one of my new favorite blogs: Effortless Anthropologie.

It’s author, Roxie, knows this store inside and out – to an extent that’s almost a little scary. :) But lucky for us she shares her knowledge with review posts, complete with pictures, and sale posts every week. If you’re not reading Roxie, you’re going to miss what you want.

>

Orange is so wearable my little Pr0n Stars: pale blonds, dark brunettes, and even redheads can wear this color in the right shade.  When you do wear it, you will get so many complements!  Most of them from non-stars who didn’t think they could wear orange.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post as much as I enjoyed writing it, and hopefully I’ll have another one later in the week!  Comments are love.  :)

Until next time, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

Net-A-Porter Super Sale!

Thanks to my friend Grechen, over at Grechen’s Closet, I was tipped off that designer mecca site Net-A-Porter had taken another 20% off their sale prices.  Net-A-Porter definitely runs towards the true designer end of the scale, so even deeply discounted is going to cost you a few pennies. 

Doma Stitched Leather Jacket, $242.50, Sz. L

Doma Stitched Leather Jacket, $242.50, Sz. L

But if you’re one of my readers who invests in this type of clothing, or waits for this type of sale to spend your money, there are deals to be had.  I’ve tried to pick out only the most worthwhile to show you.  FYI, all products are linked to via their pictures.

.

At just under half price (was $505), this Doma stitched leather jacket is still a steal.  You’re looking at a red leather collarless jacket with stitched detailing around the neckline. 

The jacket has long sleeves, two zipped pockets, a zip athrough the front and is fully lined.  It’s available only in size Large, which is probably going to be around a U.S. 10.  It’s like buttah, and it’s going to be gone in a heartbeat. 

.

Tibi Bow Collar Dress, $177.60, Sz. M,L

Tibi Bow Collar Dress, $177.60, Sz. M,L

Tibi is quickly popping up on my brand radar for their beautiful blouses and dresses in feminine fabrics, colors and styles.  This particular dress reminds me of Milly NYC, which has been a great diappointment to me Spring/Summer. 

You all know what a fan I am of retro influenced styles, especially ’60s/mod looks.  This coral mini-dress is made in a heavy jersey with a large bow at the neckline, elbow length sleeves and a side zip. 

 Sizes medium and large, or about U.S. 8-10 can get this on sale for $177.60, down from $370.  Pictures, please!

.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Short Wool Coat, $264, Sz. S-L

Marc by Marc Jacobs Short Wool Coat, $264, Sz. S-L

Often you can get a good deal by buying off season.  If you’re good at delayed gratification, buying for next fall or winter is a great idea. 

Think how cheery this coral Marc by Marc Jacobs short winter coat will make you when you walk through a sea of black and grey.   Everyone should have a longer formal winter coat, and a shorter casual one.

This was originally $550, but is on sale for $264, and is still available in sizes small, medium and large.  It’s 80% wool, 20% nylon with a back pleat and satin lining.

.

"Calisten", Cotton/Acrylic Grape Cardigan, $78.45, Sz. L

"Calisten", Cotton/Acrylic Grape Cardigan, $78.45, Sz. L

Since I don’t wear wool, I find it difficult to find really cozy, soft sweaters.  This grape colored cardigan by Malene Birger looks so soft and so comfortable for a size Large.

It’s a cotton/acrylic blend with a round neckline, long sleeves, white beaded buttons and front pockets to keep your well manicured fingers warm. :)

I particularly appreciate the edging at the cuffs and hem, which will help a good sweater keep its shape.  “Calisten” retailed for $245 and is now an incredible buy at only $78.40.

.

I have a confession: I think these Tory Burch Jelly Reva flats are adorable.  I know, I know.  I can’t help it; every fashionista has their weakness. 

Tory Burch Jelly Reva Flats, $38, Sz. 8/8.5

Tory Burch Jelly Reva Flats, $38, Sz. 8/8.5

But listen: aside from cobalt blue, sunshine/schoolbus yellow is the color this season.  I snatched up a Dooney & Bourke handbag in the color on sale and I just adore it.  I get complimented on it all the time. 

If you wear a size 8/8.5  shoe, these normally $98 flats are on sale for $38! You all are lucky I rarely wear flats, otherwise we’d have to throw down. 

Sizing info says to go down half a size if you wear a half size, and they’re available in an 8.

.

Yesterday, I was reminded by my good friend Heidi (who writes a really thoughtful size acceptance blog) that a good handbag is an investment.  Especially if it’s not too trendy, it’s something that you’ll have and use for years.

Mulberry Large Soho Shoulder Bag, $278

Mulberry Large Soho Shoulder Bag, $278

That’s why I’m recommending this Mulberry Large Soho bag, for $278.  To start, you can’t get a good designer bag for $278 unless you’re very lucky.  

This is a classic shape in a not-too-trendy color.  Be careful, as it may be a touch more orangey than it appears, depending on your monitor.

Soho has an adjustable shoulder strap, and silver hardware including a turnlock, which is a very safe closure.  The inside is lined in twill.  

See here, and check out this picture for a sense of how big it is – it’s definitely roomie, and has a nice drop long enough to be worn on your shoulder. 

Best of all – handbags have no size.  Anyone can wear them. :D  Last but not least, for more deals check out The Outnet, Net-a-Porter’s “bargain” little sister.

Thanks for reading, my little pr0n plums!

As always, it was good for me.  Tell me, was it good for you?

Outfit of the Day: Totally Awesome ’80s Style

Sarah Jessica Parker and Amy Linker in Square Pegs

Sarah Jessica Parker and Amy Linker in Square Pegs

Like, welcome to the ’80s, my preppy pr0n pals.  Today’s post is going to be totally awesome.  I don’t know if you’ve heard, but the ’80s styles are back, and like, that’s a decade your blogger totally knows.

There are lots of different types of ’80s fashion; I mean there were the punks, and the Madonna wannabes – grody to the max – but the style I remember best is preppy.  Pr0nSis was a totally tubular dresser if you know what I mean.  She had The Preppy Handbook, and shopped at Talbots, which was like totally different back then.

So, like, put in your Beta tape of Square Pegs and pay attention – because before Sarah Jessica Parker was Carrie, she was Patty. And she was totally awesome.  Totally.

Lily Pulitzer Pink Polo , $69 @ Zappos

Lily Pulitzer Pink Polo , $69 @ Zappos

The start to any prep fashion worth its plaid is its polo shirt.  These are still easy to find, but there are three keys to properly wearing this retro style.

When buying a polo shirt, you want consider fit, color, and layering.  Polo styles should be fitted; I don’t want to see anything your mom would wear.  Colors should be bright and layering is encouraged – and always, always pop the collar.

Fitzwell LondonGreen Polo, $29 at Zappos

Fitzwell LondonGreen Polo, $29 at Zappos

I chose pink and green polo shirts; two colors any prep would be proud to style: a Lily Pulitzer true pink, and a Fitzwell Polo in minty green, both from Zappos.

Lacoste Cotton V-neck Cable Knit Sweater, $71.99

Lacoste Cotton V-neck Cable Knit Sweater, $71.99

In this instance I’d prefer to see the pink on top, because the Lily Pulitzer is pique; pique is a plus for ’80s fashion.

Go even further by layering a cardigan or tennis sweater on top.  For the moment the style is that the sweater is going to go draped over your shoulders, tied in front.

I went with a classic v-neck cable neck sweater from Lacoste.  Cable knit is definitely a plus, and you could do an entire preppy wardrobe at Lacoste if you were careful.

.

From here preppy style can go a few ways: preferably either  a skirt or capris; whichever one you choose the theme is still about color and fit.

Lily Pulitzer Georgie Reversible Skirt, $71.20 @Preppy Outlet

Lily Pulitzer Georgie Reversible Skirt, $71.20 @Preppy Outlet

Skirts should be straight or have a bit of an a-line, wrap skirts are a plus; anything with small animals on it is a big plus.  This is preppy fashion: skirts are above the knee and then some. No micro minis, but maybe mid-thigh.

.

Lily Pulitzer Georgie Reversible Skirt, $71.20@Preppy Outlet

Lily Pulitzer Georgie Reversible Skirt, $71.20@Preppy Outlet

Lily Pulitzer has merely updated its style since the ’80s, making it a choice fashion brand to use.

The Georgie reversible wrap skirt changes from a light blue buttoned slightly sailor style, to a pale green with pink embroidered monkeys on it!  Monkeys!  This is preppy perfection and two skirts in one for $71.20.

.
Let’s talk capri pants.  Why wear capris?  You can wear a full length pant for ’80s preppy fashion, but I think when you see what’s next you’ll understand why you won’t want to.

Ralph Lauren Stretch Golf Pants, $125

Ralph Lauren Stretch Golf Pants, $125

To start, these aren’t just any capri pants.  ’80’s preppy pants are flat front, slim fit, brightly colored pants, frequently with a split hem.

With this particular outfit I could have turned down the volume slightly with the Resort Kiwi color, but I went full blast by using the Classic Lemon color of the Ralph Lauren Stretch Golf Pants.  If you’re going ’80’s preppy style, you can’t be afraid of color.

.

.

Tods Heaven Boatstitch Loafers, $316 at Bluefly

Tods Heaven Boatstitch Loafers, $316 at Bluefly

Shoes and bags are needed to accessorize our ’80s style preppy outfit.  A relatively wide variety of shoes can be adapted, so long as you follow two rules: color and flats.

Something as simple as a pair of Keds would work,  or you could choose a pair of brightly colored loafers like these Tod’s.

Kate Spade Green Maui Jelly Thongs, $28.99 @Bluefly

Kate Spade Green Maui Jelly Thongs, $28.99 @Bluefly

For summer, a pair of bright flat sandals will also work very well for this style.  Make sure the style isn’t overly modern: no gladiator sandals, and no metallics.

Think simple and bright, like these adorable Kate Spade Jellies.  Jellies are sooo ’80s style.

Bright white sandals would also work fine, but I can’t stress this enough when talking about ’80s preppy fashion: don’t be afraid of color.

.

For handbags, think about “conservative” brands and structured styles in bright colors; no hobos, or other slouchy styles.  Structured totes are best, or a conservative satchel.  Kate Spade, some Tory Burch, Coach.  I’ve shown some examples of do’s and dont’s below.

Ray Ban Wayfarers

Ray Ban Wayfarers

Preppy sunglasses are definitely different from what’s chic today; no oversized round plastic frames.  I have two words for you Ray-Ban Wayfarers.

If you don’t know what I mean, watch Tom Cruise in Risky Business.  If you haven’t seen Risky Business, you don’t understand the ’80s.

So, like there you go and stuff.  You’re totally preppy, and it’s all, like ’80s fashion style.

Outfit of the Day: Stretching Your Closet

Pr0nstars, often the best way to stretch your closet is by experimenting a little.  Remember when you were little and played dress up?  Take some time to pull things out of your closet, put them together in new and scary ways and take pictures.  See what works.  

Monday I had a fancy work conference to attend; not only were my suit pants in need of dry cleaning, but they’re in need of me losing this winter weight. :p  Which was how I created my Outfit of the Day.

The best outfits come from experimentation

The best outfits come from experimentation

Here are the pieces that I worked with.  I started with my new Marc by Marc Jacobs dress, bought on sale at Cusp.  My normal instinct would be to put a cardigan over a dress, so I didn’t do that.  Instead, I pulled out my charcoal gray wool crepe suit jacket from J. Crew

Outfit of the Day: Conference
Outfit of the Day: Conference by din2quared featuring J Crew jackets

 A suit jacket in a neutral color can go with almost anything: pants, jeans, a skirt and even a dress apparently.  I tried it because I knew the colors would work well together (pink and gray were so ’80s), and the suit jacket was fitted.  A boxy suit jacket would have overwhelmed the dress.

I’ve been all about grey tights; they’re more fun than black, but don’t take you too far outside your comfort zone.  These tights were more of a dove grey; I stayed in the same color family, just mixed shades.  For instance, I could have put a bright pink cardigan over the light pink dress.

The shoes are Nordstrom’s Biala brand, and are actually a burgundy patent leather, but I couldn’t get a picture of that.  Again, red/pink is in the same color family. The bag is my cheery new post-conference treat: a Dooney Bourke , which was 30% off.

.

I have to share with you the story of this Laundry trench coat.  If you’re a regular pr0n addict, you know I’ve been searching high and low for a new spring coat; I haven’t had once since I lost a bunch of weight.  I’d looked everywhere online and hadn’t found anything I like. 

Laundry Trench Coat

Laundry Trench Coat

So this past weekend, Pr0nMom and I went to our local Giga-Mall.  Out of default we started at Bloomingdales.  Pickings were slim, but I spotted two trenches; one was white, and you know I am not the type of person to buy white things; the other was this one. 

I tried it on, and Pr0n Mom and I both laughed, because it was perfect and completely in budget.  When does that ever happen? Anyway, that’s the story of my new coat.
..

Banana Republic Chunky Necklace - My closet

Banana Republic Chunky Necklace - My closet

Finally, since I wanted to keep the outfit from looking too conservative, I put on my chunky double-strand necklace from Banana Republic, bought a few months ago. 

The necklace didn’t cost more than $40 or $50 and it’s been a great investment since it goes with everything. 

.

Conference Cutie?

Conference Cutie?

I hope you’ll agree that this turned out to be a chic, fun way to look professional, but show a lot of personality. 

Plus I didn’t buy anything specifically for this occasion.  Everything that I wore here I’ve already worn lots of times, or I expect to wear lots of times.

.

Any questions before class is dismissed?

Thanks for reading, my little  salmonella contaminated pr0n pistachios. 

It was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?


Digg!

Outfit of the Day: Dress Me!

Outfit of the Day is back, my little pr0n peppermint, and I need your help! Even fashionistas get the blues.  I’m going to show you two pieces that I’ve just bought and you’re going to help me put together an outfit with them.  It’ll be fun!  Just like those Choose Your Own Adventure Books we used to read.  So put on your best thinking caps and dress this mess!

.

Me and My Marc Jacobs

Me and My Marc Jacobs

The parameters are this: I just bought this Marc by Marc Jacobs dress on sale at Cusp.

 (Yes, Cusp! They can’t throw me out anymore!).  I feel the need to explain that it has to be taken in a little on top.

Anyway.  Me, dress, sale.  Yay!  It’s a cotton faille – sort of ribbed; the zipper is meant to be exposed and the hemline is a wide band of fabric.  It’s my first Marc by Marc Jacobs and my first Cusp purchase.  *snif*  I’m so proud.

Then this Dooney & Bourke handbag I’d been eying went on sale. The chocolate brown disappeared, and this bright yellow appeared.

Yellow Medium Chiara at Dooney Bourke

Yellow is scary!  But I’ll have it today and know whether or not it works.

Betsy + Iya Asymmetrical Copper Necklace

Betsy + Iya Asymmetrical Copper Necklace

The third thing that I’ll have is my asymmetrical copper necklace that I bought from Betsy + Iya.

So, keeping all that in mind, here is your mission, should you choose to accept it.

Dress this Mess

Dress this mess!

Give me your fashion guidance, my pr0n addicts!  I have the dress, the bag (unless I hate it), the pink cardigan and the sunglasses (a steal at Loehmann’s).  The rest are ideas: Do I mix yellows?  Will a jacket look better than a cardigan?  Am I completely off my rocker mixing a pale dress with a bright bag? Should I mix pinks, not yellows?  A little help here!

The two Moschino pumps on the right are scrumptious, but at $600 /pair they’re a not so much. Have you seen anything similar?  Seen anything different? What do you like? No slingbacks or heels over 3.5″, please.

The  brown Bettye Mueller pair I lurrrrrrve, but they’re a final sale!  And with my fussy feet that’s just asking for trouble.  I’m trying to stretch my fashion wings this season, so don’t be afraid to show me something totally off the wall.  I’m open to ideas.  I want participation!

Help me, Obi Wan Pr0n Stars! You’re my only hope!

I’m off to a meeting, then home.  When I return, I expect opinions, links, pretty pictures, diagrams, photoshops, etc. etc. etc.  Don’t let me down!

I’ll post pictures of the outfit as it takes shape.

Until then, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

Sales Pr0n: Shop Bop 20% off 70%

Hello my lovely pr0n puffins.  I’m so sorry for being absent these past days – I’ve had a touch of blogger’s block.  I keep starting posts and deciding they’re just not worthy of you!  But to paraphrase the immortal words of  the Goddess Nike: just do it

Calvin Klein Kenney Gown

Calvin Klein Kenney Gown, $429.60

To that end, this is the first of two posts today – ShopBop.com is giving you 20% off all items that are currently 70% off.  Confused?  Go here.  Find something you love.  At checkout enter code 20off70 before 11:59 on Thursday the 19th – save another 20%. 

As always here at ShoppingPr0n, we shop so you don’t have to.  I’ve taken the liberty of pulling the cream of the 70% off crop and I will deliver them into your greedy little laps.

.

I try not to show very many high end items; until I know that I have a following out in Web-Land for them I assume I mostly don’t (if I do, speak up!).  But occasionally a piece is too beautiful to resist.

Back View Calvin Klein Collection Kenney Gown

Back View Calvin Klein Collection Kenney Gown

Calvin Klein is known for femininity in simplicity and elegance; this buttery yellow “Kenney Gown” is classic Calvin Klein Colelction.  It’s a stretch silk (98% silk, 2% elastic; lining 100% silk) available in a size 6, made in Italy. 

If you don’t understand what’s so special about this dress, look at the back.  This gown was originally $1790.00, and it’s available for $429.

If you have a special once-in-a-lifetime event coming up: a non-traditional wedding maybe?  A gallery opening?  Choose a once-in-a-lifetime gown like Kenney.

.
For a slightly more down to earth dress, consider this adorable mod “Pocket Pleat Shift Dress” by Milly.  By now you know I’ll show you Milly any chance I get; really this blog is all about me. ;)

Milly Pocket Pleat Shift Dress, $108

Milly Pocket Pleat Shift Dress, $108

The trick to getting really amazing deals is to be flexible; pick up this sleeveless shift for next fall and winter.  As of this writing, it’s still available in a large, which is probably about an 8/10.  Check the size chart, peanuts.

 If you do invest in this dress, make sure you’re a person who can wear a natural waist (i.e. neither raised nor lowered).  Generally you should be pretty proportional to do this, particularly with your torso. 

Your dear blogger probably couldn’t pull this off because she has a very long torso.  Short torsos should go for no waist, otherwise they’ll look cut in half. 

(How do you know what you have? Do you wear one-piece bathing suits easily or do you find them too short/stop too low on the boobs.  If you wore a pair of higher rise jeans, would it just look unfortunate or would it stop under your boobs?  The former is long-waisted, the latter is short.)  Michelle Obama looks great in natural waistlines.

Check out the inverted (inside-out) pleat in front (kind of hard to see), it’s a detail that I’m seeing more of.  An inverted pleat should keep a skirt from looking too wide of boxy.  Pair this one it with a a pair of brightly colored tights and a grey cardigan.

 

Maloles - Party Pochette

Maloles - Party Pochette $79.20 (orig. $330)

The wonderful thing about handbags is that every size is yours!  Like this “Party Pochette” by Maloles.

A pochette is simply a pouch; Malole’s is bigger than it looks at 6″ x 11″.  Most clutches are much smaller and not terribly functional, unlike this one which has 4 interior sections, an interior zipper pocket, and a zipper pocket under the flap.

I prefer it in pink (I prefer everything in pink), but it comes in silver, too.

.

Leopoldo Giordano Folded Ornament Wedge, $130.8 (Orig. $545)

Leopoldo Giordano Folded Ornament Wedge, $130.8 (Orig. $545)

Shoes come in sizes, but they’re frequently seasonless!  I know I’ve shown you these divine blue wedges from Leopoldo Giordano before, way way back when in Sales Pr0n: Dying of the Flu Edition, but they’re even more on sale now!

Pancakes, these are $545 shoes for $130!  Please, won’t somebody think of the children and buy these shoes?  And if you do, send me pictures! (Shoppingpr0n@gmail.com)

These patent leather wedges have a tab detail at vamp, and a seam detail at the 4″ covered heel.  Made in Italy. 

Your podiatrist will not approve, but who asked her?  Oh – these are still available while they last in Euro sizes 38 -40.5 (about 8 -9.5). 

I know you won’t disappoint me.

.

Leopoldo Giordano Broken Top Line Pump, $116.40 (Orig. $485)

Leopoldo Giordano Broken Top Line Pump, $116.40 (Orig. $485)

Leopoldo (Mr. Giordano if you’re nasty) has also been kind enough to design for us what he calls “Broken Top Line Pumps” .

Regular pr0nsters know how much I adore details like this: the smallest style change that can turn a very nice pump into a sublime one.

Suede is kind of a cold-season fabric, but it’s not like anyone’s going to send the Fashion Police after you for wearing it past March.  It’s just a heavy fabric/cold season style generality. 

Brown and black are still available sizes 36.5 and up, but not for long!

.
Since I’ve shown you two “out of season” fashions, I’ll make it up to you with one more “in-season” top.

Karta Printed V Sleeveless Top, $74.88 (Orig. $312)

Karta Printed V Sleeveless Top, $74.88 (Orig. $312)

 

Surely this is one of the most unique tops I’ve ever seen.  Karta’s  Print V Neck Sleeveless Top is a black and white woven v-neck floral (lined), with a faceted-resin appliqué daisy on one side.  

I love the way bright colors are being used to contrast against black here.  The shirt is 25″ long, and on the model it stops just below her hips. 

I feel like this top would be fun to wear to the Kentucky Derby with some retro pumps, a cute skirt and a big ol’ hat. 

.
Our time is up for the moment, my lovelies.  I have one more post for you this evening: a product review. After that, hopefully I’ll be back on track.

By the way, Pr0nMom was supposed to go shopping for trouser jeans today, like the Lucky Brand ones I showed you in my most recent Outfit of the Day (erm – why didn’t you all tell me it said ‘Outfit of the Dayo’?).  We all know how awful buying jeans can be, so let’s wish her luck!

Until next time, it was good for me; tell me: was it good for you?

This is 100% silk charmeuse, lined in 100% silk chiffon.  Seriously, people – buy this!

They’ve got absolute pages upon pages of sales items to browse through; it’s not the best layout in the world, but you’re shopping – it could be worse!

Tibi Red Gerbera Shell at ChickDowntown

Tibi Red Gerbera Shell at ChickDowntown

How about this Tibi Red Gerbera Shell for $54? Size 8, 100% cotton.  Brilliant blossoms top with back button closure.

Oh – I’m looking at this size chart and these are definitely not true-to-size.  I wear a size 6 on top, and according to their size chart I’d be about a 10 on their site.  So proceed with caution. 

If you have a store nearby that sells this brand (say a better department store) and can try a few pieces on just for size, that would be a good idea.

Juicy Flocked Shirt at Neiman Marcus

Juicy Flocked Shirt at Neiman Marcus

Finally, I was reading just the other day about how venerable luxury retailer Neiman Marcus posted a 20% loss compared to this time last year.  So it occurs to me – pr0n stars: it’s time to do our part.  We too must sacrifice in order to save the economy.  We must shop at Neiman Marcus.

Think you could never afford to shop at Neiman’s? Think again. Think about this Juicy Couture Flocked top. Very bohemian. Very mint. Very $59.00.

Or this Theory Cargo skirt for $75.00.  They call the color “Myrrh”; I think Theory would have made an excellent gift for the baby Jesus, don’t you?

You know what this post needs? More cowbell handbags and shoes.

These Taryn Rose boots are an incredible find.  Taryn Rose is a former Orthopedic Surgeon turned shoe designer who creates stunning shoes that are good for your feet.

Unfortunately for us humans, the prices are stunning, too. 

Her Helium Polished Leather boots are still available in a wide range of colors and sizes, and are half-off, at $203.   If you’re in the market for a pair of black or brown boots try these.

My BFF, K, was recently treated to a pair of Taryn Rose boots worth nearly my monthly rent! Now that’s pr0n!

Lauren Merkin Eve Clutch at Luna Boston
Lauren Merkin Eve Clutch at Luna Boston

Handbag pickings at Neiman’s were pretty slim, so I went to old faithful, LunaBoston, to show you Lauren Merkin.  I looove Lauren Merkin clutches. 

I’m not normally a clutch kind of a girl, but these are so stylish and chich that I’m drawn to them.

Like this Eve Textured Lambskin clutch in Coral – it was $180, and it’s now $135 – plus free shipping for any orders over $100 and free returns.  What are you waiting for? Go! Shoo!

By now certainly you’ve found something to stimulate the economy with. I hope you enjoy your purchases (send me pictures!), and I hope you enjoyed today’s edition of Shopping Pr0n!

Until next time, my lovely pr0n pickles – it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?
