Related Pr0n: I Won on Polyvore!

We interrupt this shopping blog for a very special announcement: I WON!  From time to time you’ve seen me use this really nifty website Polyvore to show you lots of products at once, or an entire outfit altogether.  Polyvore lets you snatch bits o’ the web and put them together along with bits o’  the web that everyone else has snatched.

For instance, I used it when showing you How to Dress for Your Body Type  if you’re a pear shape; I used it when we were talking about Stretching Your Closet , to show you the outfit I’d pulled together from my own closet, and again when I was asking for your help the the very same dress in Dress this Mess.  I even managed to eek out a couple of men’s outfits when talking about Sample Sales and Sunday Brunch Outfits, and to show you how to (properly) dress like Michelle Obama. Oh, heck.  Just click the Polyvore tag and go wild!

.

But aside from being a really helpful tool for bloggers, it’s just a lot of fun, and lets you express your artistic or fashion skillz in a different way.

Just today your dear blogger WON a contest!  Through the Bloggers on Polyvore group, my set took first prize in the “Submit Your Best Set” contest.  here it is:

.

Yay! I’m really proud of my little set, but I can’t overlook some of my other favorites, too:

So if you’ve ever wondered what could possibly drag your dear blogger away from you, my favorite little pr0n pomegranates – it’s this… I’m playing with all my sets in Polvore.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Shopping Pr0n, with Pr0n Plus: the very best in plus size fashion, hopefully coming tonight.

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

Adam Midnight T-Shirt Dress at ChickDowntown.com

Adam Midnight T-Shirt Dress at ChickDowntown.com

ChickDowntown is having an absolute blow-out sale.  Use code “ADD40” and take an additional 40% off sale items. 

These are final sale items, and don’t qualify for free shipping, but with prices like $67.50 for this ADAM Midnight T-shirt dress, sizes 4 & 10, if you’re a fairly easy fit, check their size charts and go for it. 

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.

Theory Cargo Skirt at Neiman Marcus

Theory Cargo Skirt at Neiman Marcus

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.

Taryn Rose Helium Polished Leather Boot

Taryn Rose Helium Polished Leather Boot

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?

Handbag/Manbag Pr0n

Pr0n friends, I am one beat blogger.  But I always have energy for you, especially because I got to use my new toy for today’s post: Polyvore.com.  Using Polyvore means I get to show you lots more goodies, and who doesn’t like more goodies?  Today we’re going to talk about handbags and manbags: all colors, prices and styles.  Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Red Hobos

Red Hobos

Red Hobos – by dinsquared on Polyvore.com

This is a hobo*.  These are also hobos.  The hobo bag is a curious creature in the wild, in sizes ranging from just enough for a wallet, cell phone and keys, to “Excuse me, Ma’am.  Are you hiding an Olsen Twin in there?”

Hobos’ common thread is their slouchy appearance, which can also vary in degree of slouch.  The pro to a hobo bag is it’s comfy casualness.  It’s nearly always a shoulder bag, and comes in lots of variations.

The con to a hobo bag is that you risk looking like…a hobo.  Generally, the more structured a bag, the more “formal” its appearance is; the less structured, the more casual.

The other downside is that you wind up kind of throwing everything into one big smooshy lump.  Good luck finding anything in there.  Even an Olsen Twin.

All details and links are at the Polyvore link, but quickly starting in the middle and then going clockwise:

1) Kate Spade Northampton Charlie: $235.85 at Couture.Zappos.com; 2) Thugs and Kisses Oversized Hobo, $175 at LunaBoston.com; 3) Phoebe Canvas Tote, $19.80 at Forever21.com; 4) (bottom)Rebecca Minkoff red patent leather ‘Mini Nikki’ shoulder bag at Bluefly, $345; 5)Rebecca Minkoff Nikki Hobo Bag – Persimmons, $600 at TheHipChick.com; (top left); 6)  AE Large Textured Hobo, $39.50 at AE.com.

Men's Messenger Bags

Men's Messenger Bags - Manbags, baby

Men’s Messenger Bags – by dinsquared on Polyvore.com

Folks, men have stuff just like women. They need to carry their stuff places, just like women.  Isn’t it time for a little bag equality among the sexes?

I’m proposing the Bag Equality Act of 2009, whereby all men making under $250,000/year will be given a Man Bag – free!

Until my movement gains momentum however, I urge all men to invest in one with their own funds.  Few things say “I’m a grown-up” like a nice bag.

Many of them come big enough for your laptop,  they come in all fabrics and styles, and you can collect them for all occasions: work, weekend, dinner – you decide!

Again, complete details available by making with the clicky, but starting with our friend the gray man, and this time going counter-clockwise (humor me): 1) Marc by Marc Jacobs Textured Patent Zip Messenger Bag, $219.99 at Bluefly.com; 2) Mark Nason Messenger Bag, $625 at EBags.com; 3) Ben Sherman Commuter Bag, $79.00 at Tobi.com; 4)Jack Spade Greene Street Canvas Nylon Field Bag, $154 at Zappos.com.

I saved this red bag for last on purpose.  I love this bag so much, because it’s actually a daddy diaper bag! Check out the link for all the information on this DadGear Courier Retro Stripe Bag, there’s plenty of it.  I found it for $59.95 at Bagsbuy.com, and it also comes in blue, green and orange. ♥

Bowler Bags

Colored Bowlers

Bowler Bags – by dinsquared on Polyvore.com

Bowler Bags (named because of their similarity to actual bowling bags) are very trendy right now, and for the last few years.  It’s a fairly classic shape, so I’m expecting this style to stick around.  Remember the divine white bowler I showed you in Clearance Pr0n?

Generally a bowler is going to be a medium to large bag; they’re maybe 60% handbags bags, and 40% shoulder bags.  They frequently have shorter “drops”, but may look deceivingly long, so be sure to try them on.

Bowlers are also usually much wider at the bottom than at the top, making the bag somewhat bulky where it hits around your hip if you’re wearing it on your shoulder.  I’m not discouraging you from a bowler – I adore bowlers.  I’m just passing on my shopping pr0n knowledge. :)

Aren’t these bags adorable though?  It kind of makes you want one in every color.  Or maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, details at the Polyvore link; starting with the model and going clockwise: 1) Hayden-Harnett Trophy Bag in Blueberry, $678 at Haydenharnett.com; 2) Latico Leathers Candy Strip Bowler, $150.35 at ebags.com; 3) Vangi Front Pockets Grained Leather Bowler Bag, $261.71 at Forzieri.com; 4) Uptown Girl Bag by Big Buddha, $66 at Fredala.com; 5) Vera Bradley Black Microfiber Pleated Bowler, $50 at VeraBradley.com.

Spring Green

Green Totes and Satchels

Spring Green – by dinsquared on Polyvore.com

Don’t tell the other sets, but this one’s really my favorite; it just came out so pretty with all the springy green bags, don’t you think?

This set is about smallish structured bags; as shoulder bags,  they may be called “satchels”; as handbags they may be called  “totes”.  I call them pr0n.

Advantages: these are structured bags that can go from work to weekend, and things will more or less stay where you put them.  They may have an inner pocket or pouch or two or four, and they frequently have a space just for your cell phone!  They may be expandable, or have an outer pocket, and they’re just ubiquitous and classic.

A tote or satchel will never go out of style, you can always find it with the latest color or trend (buckles, zippers), and they’re easy to find in every price range.  If you’re stranded on a desert island and can only bring one handbag (quélle horror!) , bring your satchel or tote.

I love all of these; I want to bring them all home with me, and I don’t usually like green!  Starting with our fine headless model and going clockwise: 1) Chloe Ande Small Expandable Canvas Tote, $1375 at Net-a-Porter.com; 2) Cole-Haan Small Village Box Tote, $170.82 at 6pm.com; 3) Merona Green Tote, $17.99 at Target; 4) Michael Kors Push Lock Shoulder Satchel, $378 at MichaelKors.com; 5) Kate Spade Noel Small Coal Tote (Green), $123.55 at Zappos.com; 5) Olivia Harris – Grey and Green Leather Tubular Satchel Tote, $495 at ShopKitson.com, and finally – 6) Tory Burch Patent Burch Tote, $395 at saksfifthavenue.com.

So there we are.  I’ll be using Polyvore more in the future to show you how to put together outfits, or examples within a category or just because I’m bored and you’re a semi-captive audience. :D Really, thanks for being here, poppies.

Over the weekend, I’ll be doing a post on…something.  But Monday is always the latest edition of Pr0n Plus!

As always, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

A couple quick notes my pr0n popsicles: *a hobo is  a term that’s not really used any more because it’s actually a homeless person.  Homelessness is a serious issue; please don’t throw things at me because I made a joke.
A huge pr0n shoutout (sh0ut0ut?) goes to thefind.com, which is this amazing website where you tell it what kind of product you’re looking for, and you can narrow it down by color and/or price and/or store if you want, and it pulls from more sites than you could possibly find in a lifetime.  There’s also like.com, but I find that I like thefind better.  (Get it? Yeah…Sorry.)

Budget Pr0n!

Hi pr0nsters.  If there’s anything your blogger loves more than a sale, it’s a challenge.  Today I will be combining the two.  In this (first) edition of Dirt Cheap Pr0n, I will be putting together three pr0nish looks for $100-150.  Everyone knows the Fifth Rule of Shopping Pr0n:  A true pr0nista doesn’t depend on price.  You rarely have to pay full price, loveys.

.

A sale is a tricky thing; you want the best price, but you don’t want the item to sell out in your size, particularly if you’re in the 10-14 range, which generally sells first.  So choose wisely – decide what an item of clothing is worth to you, sign up for email lists at favorite stores so you’ll get advance notice of sales, and special discounts, and when the time is right – pounce!  Sometimes that time is right away.  But rarely.


Outfit #1 is a work/date/dinner outfit..

I’m going to start with this fuchsia silk cami on final sale over at J. Crew.  It’s a final sale, so you have to know how this particular brand fits you, but I like it because it’s versatile – wear it under a suit, or with jeans or a pencil skirt.  They have it available in most sizes, and it’s in ivory, too.

The cami is fully lined, with a side zipper and it’s machine washable.  So this gets a thumbs up for me for $29.99, originally $75.00.

.

Right now I’m thinking that I don’t like final sales – scary.  So I’m going to pair this with a classic pencil skirt on sale at Martin & Osa .

Because the cami has a slight A-Line I want something more fitted on bottom to balance it out.  This pencil skirt can go from work to evening, I like the above the knee length, and the slight sheen.

The skirt has a little stretch in it, and it’s fully lined.  Martin & Osa has free shipping and returns, and the skirt is still available in sizes 6-18.  So this skirt is a winner for only $19.99 on clearance from $69.99, and I’ve only spent half my budget.  Whoo!

.

I’m kind of flexible with how I can finish the outfit on top depending on how much money I have left, but I know I need shoes so that’s what I’m after next.  

Endless.com has free overnight shipping on regular priced shoes, but these are clearance, so it’s standard shipping, which is 3-5 business days.  Still – free! Loving these cute Bongo peep toe Thora pumps for$26.10.

Thora has a 3.5 inch heel with a .25 inch platform, peep toe, and is available in sizes 6 to 8.5.  I can still spend $24.00 or so on accessories or a jacket if I’m really lucky.

.

Overstock.com has $1.00 shipping, so I’m going to take advantage of that.  For $9.89 this pink ring matches the pink top, and will give the outfit another splash of color.

Finally I’m going to brighten the whole thing with a Sterling Silver Polished Flex Bangle Bracelet for $15.29.

Grand total, including shipping with J. Crew equals $110.76. *beams*  Throw in your own handbag and black tights, pls.

.

Outfit #2 is an outfit that can be casual, work or date.  Almost anywhere.

I don’t know why finding an affordable, pr0nish dress was so difficult, but trust me: it was.  I found the dress I chose in an unlikely place: The Greenloop.  This is an organic cotton wrap dress; you may have heard that wrap dresses are nearly universally flattering, and it’s true.  Whether you’ve got a tummy or hips, a wrap dress can camouflage.

Again, this is organic cotton, with a deep v-neck (throw a cami under if there’s too much cleavage), 3/4 length sleeves, and an a-line skirt that hits right above the knee (too long? the tailor is your friend).  It’s available up to an XL (16) in Black, Cranberry, Midnight Blue and Truffle (shown).

Diane was originally $95, it’s on sale for $75; use code sale25 and the final price is $61.75 (including $5.00 shipping). It’s a simple dress, but that just means you can do a lot with it.

.

I love it with boots, but thinking outside the box, I went over to Payless.  They’re following Target’s lead and teaming up with high fashion designers to produce pr0nish Payless lines.

These gray flats are Lela Rose for Target. Your dear blogger is all over gray tights right now, too. They go with everything and are such a cute change from black.  The flats $34, so this outfit is going to be more than the last.

Speaking of Target, while we’re running errands, we’ll swing into there.  Hayden-Harnett has a limited edition line there, and I’ll be darned if I’m going to miss out on that!

The website seems to feel this is a rectangular clutch with no straps; I beg to differ.  This is a brown rectangular PVC bag, with a fold-over flap (don’t know if the interior zips or not), with a square gold-tone detail on the front and a skinny strap.

The interior has the Hayden Harnett signature.

You can have your own Hayden Harnett for $29.99 (the clutch is $19.99).  We’re up to $125, so let’s throw in one more thing and call it a wrap.

.

In fact, that’s a great idea.  I’m going to throw on this purple ruffle-knit acrylic wrap.  It’ll keep me warm and give the outfit a little contrast color, which will go with any of the colors the dress is in, and give a little contrast texture.  It’s $14.99 on clearance.

Our grand total is about $140, and we got a dress, shoes, handbag and a wrap.  Not shabby!  If we’d used our own shoes, and bought the clutch, we’d come in right at $100.

.

Outfit #3 is for men, and I’m anticipating this is going to be easy.

Men, I’m going to teach you a very valuable skill: it’s called layering.  A few years ago, Scowley’s hubby came down for the weekend and I cleaned him up but good.  This is the kind of outfit we’re going to put together.

Here’s what you do: you take a button down shirt with a little personality, like this Project E pale green distressed ‘Rivington’ button down shirt from Bluefly.com.  Retail price: $84.99, Bluefly price $50, reduced to $44.99, Presidents Day sale price: $35.99.

Now you pair it with a nice t-shirt underneath.  A nice t-shirt.  A new t-shirt.  With some color and personality.  I like this coffee colored graphic-tee, also from Pr0ject E.  Yes, the top is green and the bottom is brown.  You can do that.  When in doubt, buy a color wheel.

(Okay, I’m being stereotypical here.  My guy friends are actually pretty hot and dress well.)  The t-shirt was blah blah, it’s now $16.79 when all is said and done.

.

Whee.  We’re only up to about 5o bucks.  We need jeans.  I have to impress on both men and women that jeans shopping sucks.  You may have to try on more than one pair.  You may have to try on lots of pairs.  Suck it up.

Don’t overthink jeans.  Head over to Old Navy, and pick yourself up a pair of medium/dark rinse boot-cut jeans for $29.50.  (I know, I just contradicted myself, but for the sake of this post, my point is that jeans don’t need to cost $200.)

.

We’re up to $80, and we need shoes.  I’m partial to a nice “sneaker” like this navy nylon “Kamikaze” from Gola at Bluefly.

As long as they’re not actual sneakers, and they’re neat and clean, you’re golden.

These are $39.99.  Bluefly shipping within the continental U.S. is a flat $7.95, bringing our fine gentleman’s grand total to $130.22.

Once you’ve got this type of dressing down, call your blogger! (Have I mentioned I’m single?)

There you have it!  Three complete outfits, which will stretch very far in your closet for under $150.  Yay!

.

This was a pain in the butt, but the thing is that good sales are usually much easier to find in person.  Stores like Loehmann’s, TJMaxx, Marshalls and Filene’s Basement will save you money on good name brands right off the bat.  Sign up for their email lists, find out about sales, and get coupons via email and save even more!

Dress like a million bucks for just a hundred.  Now that’s pr0n. Thanks for reading, lumpkins.  I’m a bit under the weather, so I hope it was up to par.

As always, it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?

Hayden-Harnett Sale Pr0n

Hiya Pr0nsters – I got a hot tip in my email this morning that Hayden Harnett is having a saaaaaaaale! So I scurried over here to tell you all.  Get 20% off anything – even sales stuff and new stuff, just by using code LOVERLY (through 2/15).  Spend $100 and get their very special iTunes playlist.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For instance, with 20% off, this luscious fitted gray leather jacket with 3/4 length sleeves would no longer be $578, but a mere $461.80. And wouldn’t you just look scrumptious in it?

.

If you travel, do check out this Clarice Train Case; I’m showing it in Amber. It even has an attached interior mirror – no more fumbling for your compact!  Now if only it came with a light…

Front and back slit pockets, zip top with one of those little leather tabs, and the whole thing is stain guarded! Scoff in the face of  $278, and say hello to $222.40.

.

Your dear blogger insists on immediate gratification, but if you don’t, invest in this adorable clutch/carryall shipping in April.

Even if you don’t eat blueberries, you’ll love this case in blueberry (or one of the other colors), when your 20% off code lowers this piece from $64 to $51.20

.

With all the money you’ve just saved, go ahead and pick up this beautiful leather harness belt. I like it in saddle. Originally $130, on sale for $48, type in LOVERLY at checkout and you only pay $38.40. That’s almost $100 off!!!

.

 

Now I’ve never seen anything quite like this Staci Crossbodi handbag. Yes, handbag. I’m partial to the violet crinkle patent, but it also comes in platinum.

Is it a handbag? Is it a clutch? With it’s removable strap, you decide!

The strap will go as long as low hip, but the small string can be tied to make your own creation. (If you buy this, send me pictures!)

 

So it’s $258? With 20% off it’s only $206.40!

.

Those are my favorites pr0n darlings. Tell me what you like!

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

Pure Pr0n

It’s good to see you my little pr0n dumplings.  Did you miss me?  Say you did.  Tonight’s post is what this blog is all about: pure pr0n.  No holds barred, the best of the best of the fashion the web has to offer at any price from any designer.  The only requirement is that it gets your engine running: heart rate faster, pupils dilated, slightly flushed – the whole nine yards.  But enough talk, let’s get busy.

.

I have good news, dumplings; I’m in love.  It’s true: I’m in love with a handbag.  This is via the store/site Hayden-Harnett NYC , which I’d never heard of until I read Shopahol Hangover, and really – who among us hasn’t had a fashion hangover? Amirite?

Be warned this is a slim tote. “Din?” I hear you asking, “What means this ‘slim tote’?  What are the implications for me?”  Due time, dumplings.  Due time.

What it means is that a) the handle drop is 3.5 inches.  This bag is meant to be carried jauntily in the crook of your arm. “But Din,” I hear you ask, “I can’t carry much if it’s hanging on the crook of my arm.”  Precisely, lumpkins.

This “Oryx Clutch” is meant “for a night on the town”.   At 1.5″ deep, there’s enough for a light cardigan, your cell phone, wallet, condoms (we have had this talk, haven’t we?), and perhaps a pair of slippers for when those fabulous pumps feel a wee bit less than fabulous.  $325, coincidentally ships 3/25.

.

But my love is fleeting and fickle.  From the people at Simply Yours who brought you Gok Wan, comes Simply Be for plus-size clothing like this Big Button Jacket, available in (UK) sizes 14-32!

This jacket is made in machine washable, uber-soft velour and is fully lined.  Looks like 3 buttons with a tab closure on the bottom.  It’s car-coat length, so it’s hitting around mid-thigh.

The jacket comes in three colors – this is Ochre; there’s also Burnt Orange and Green, which is sort of…minty.

Let’s talk turkey £50, which Google tells me is about $72.00 these days.  Sadly, Simply Be does not ship to the U.S. yet, but I’m thinking about a Pr0n Cultural Exchange program.

If someone wants to buy from Simply Yours or Simply Be, contact me and I’ll see if I can arrange for a UK friend to ship in exchange for sexual favors my undying love and a favor to be returned later.

.

But my lovely lemons cannot go naked underneath their new coats!  No no, that will not do.  And so I give you this actual vintage 60’s  red wool knit suit, courtesy of  Couture Allure.  When I say actual vintage, I mean actual vintage. There’s one of these, so if you want it – go get it.  We’ll still be here.

The chest is 40″, the waist is elasticized, so it’s 30″ not stretched out.  I would add several more inches to that in terms of actual capacity.  The sleeves are 18″ from the shoulder seam, so 3/4 length? and the top is meant to be looser than the skirt, which is 20″.

It’s 100% wool with a side zipper on the skirt.  Check out the website for actual condition information, but it’s $55.00.  Pr0n Approved.

.

Now, my under size 14 pr0nistas love vintage as well, and I have something for you.  Can you say Vintage ’60’s DIOR??  Let me repeat myself VINTAGE DIOR, PEOPLE.  I’m calm – I’m calm.  This is an original Christian Dior from the 1960’s sold by Neiman Marcus.  The fabric is tobacco brown in ribbed silk (ribbed silk!)

Please look at the detail on this dress.  The darting at the bust that leads down to the side seaming.  The skirt portion hits at low waist with a pleated bow detail.  The bodice is a scoop neck with cap sleeves. *sigh*

The dress closes with a center back metal zipper and has a brown China silk lining.  It is interlined in cotton batiste for added body.”

The measurements are kind of interesting; they’re not what you typically see in sizing today.  Bust – 37″, waist 27″, hips 40″.  Shoulder to waist – 16″, shoulder to shoulder 16″.  I’m envisioning someone curvy and petite in this dress.

If you have a special occasion coming up, look no further – plunk your $450 right here.

.

Why don’t we finish these outfits?  Try these green and yellow tear drop dangles from ShopTwigs.com. Or these simple yellow stone earrings, also from Shoptwigs.

The teardrops combine yellow and lime green; wear them with neutrals, wear them with anything that has either color in it, wear them with navy – just wear them!

Originally $163, they’re on sale for $82. (Makes me want to get my ears re-pierced).

The yellow stones, which are just so classic and will go with anything are 3/4″ wide with a 1″ drop, and sell for $110.

Both these dresses cry out for a wonderful pump (Can you hear the dresses crying, Clarice?)  For the vintage red wool, I recommend simplicity and modernity, both of which you can find in these suede Bottega Veneta platform pumps.

Did I mention they were suede?  Yes, well – 4.5″ heel with a 1″ platform (remember pumpkins, that means it’s going to feel like a 3.5″ heel).

They have an almond shape toe, cone shaped heel and a molded platform and heel.  You can purchase them for $690 at Net a Porter.  Save the economy, buy Bottega Veneta!

The Dior calls for something more delicate – Dior generally does.  One must be a lady in Dior. Once you’re out of the Dior, all bets are off – I’m just saying.  These red patent leather Jimmy Choos are all wrong but I’m showing them to you anyway.  Because it’s my blog; I can do that.

Red. Patent Leather. Mary Janes. Jimmy Choo.  Do you need to know anything else?

Fine.  Rounded toe, leather upper, leather lining.  Adjustable leather strap along vamp. 4″ heel, made in Italy

Ah, men!  I’ve neglected you!  Unless you have a shoe fetish in which case you should be all set.

Well that was exciting.  I opened up my men’s file and found…a belt.  Fear not! I come bearing pr0n.  Feast your eyes on this Vintage by La Rosa ’60’s car coat.

This is a mint condition original car coat from the ’60’s.  Traditional collar, long sleeves with rolled cuffs and decorative buttons.

Chest width from underarm to underarm is 20″, sleeve length from shoulder to cuff is 24.5″, and length from neck to hem is 40″.

La Rosa is a vintage boutique on Haight Street in San Francisco, so if you’re nearby – stop in!  If not, head over to eLuxury.com and make sure you have $400 available, credit or debit.

.If vintage isn’t your bag, never fear.  Barney’s Co-op is here!  I’d love to see my suitors in this Marc by Marc Jacobs Happy Face Cardigan.  Exclusively at the Co-op (man that cracks me up.  $900 clothes at a “co-op”), this light grey cotton v-neck cardigan sweater has a contrast yellow placket , two front pockets and a happy face logo over the left chest.

It’s also available in sort of a heathered gray with a contrast pink placket.  Equally cute!

Why not slip on a pair of dark jeans and these Alexander McQueen bark zip-up ankle boots, and call that special gal pal of yours to go out for a malt?

.Now it seems to me that every time I feature lingerie, my hits go up.  Maybe you all are just a bunch of pervs, but as long as you keep reading, I really don’t care.

Besides, I want to show you this handmade cami and shorts from On the Inside (via Smashing Darling):”Sassafrass” cami and “Forget Me Not Panties”.  Each are handmade in New York City, and the pantiliner is made of organic cotton.

The designer says it’s a very soft cream colored lace with pink detail.  The panties are definitely low rise, but flattering to one’s booty.

The cami has curved cups and plush, adjustable gold straps.

If you’re a small C or below and need just a bit of support rather than underwire, these pieces really look delightful.

The Cami is $35, panties are $20.  Comparable to less that anything you’d find in a good department store, and wouldn’t you rather your money go to a real person anyway?

.

I’m going to show you lovelies two more pieces from On the Inside, because I stumbled across someone’s blog earlier, who was complaining that she couldn’t find a simple cotton, non-underwire bra (I swear it was complete coincidence.)

You have no idea how much I wish I would wear this organic cotton “Summersweet Bra” Mint cotton lined in cocoa with a cross-back for extra support.  The bra is $34 (which I would totally pay if I thought it would work on Olga and Helga here). Matching low-rise panties are $20.

Okay.  Is there anything we haven’t covered (get it? covered? get it? yeah.)  Oh, crap. I promised like 12 million people skirts.

If you’ve got a little more flexibility in your wardrobe, or just want a cute skirt, check out this classic Collectif pencil skirt.  It’s meant to be worn slightly low-rise and it comes in baby-blue, pale pink and lovely lemon yellow.

It’s available in UK sizes 8 – 20 and they do ship to the U.S. and Europe.  Only two left in this particular style and it’s £10 . Check out the rest of their selection to make shipping costs worthwhile.

.

For a more classic skirt with a more classic fit, over at ShopBop I found this purple crepe skirt by Black Halo.  It has rounded pockets at the hip with button flap detail, a hidden back zipper and notch at the back waistband (perhaps for a better fit?).  It’s 23″ long, made in the U.S.A., sizes 0-10 for $230.

.

.

.Rounding out tonight’s catch is this cute as a button “Shorthand” skirt, back at Smashing Darling .

White cotton denim with a front tab with buttons that cover a zipper.

.

This is by designer Laura Dawson…annnnnd I don’t have any manufacturing information.  $50 – currently available xs – m, which the site tells me is going to run a little small.   I’m calling it 0-8, even though they say 2-10.

.

Last one for tonight, and then I leave you.

If any of you are truly and I mean really and truly fashion forward, then I have a gem of a skirt for you.

High waisted, black skirt, with gathers going down the front and sides. 100% cotton, machine washable. by Zeto Clothing.

“Zeto pays utmost attention to detail – using only the highest quality original fabrics, custom-dyes, light weight inks, and in-house artwork to punctuate each piece of clothing”.  $88, with more specific styling details at the website.

My most precious pr0ners, good night good night! Parting is such sweet sorrow, that I shall say good night ’til it be morrow.

.

Once again – it was good for me; tell me, was it good for you?
