Steals and Deals at Neiman Marcus

Turquoise Skirt Suit, $93.75

Turquoise Skirt Suit, $93.75

It’s getting to be that time of year, pr0n stars: where the temperatures are high and the prices are low.  It’s the time of year where you can find incredible deals even at stores like Neiman Marcus, that might otherwise be off your radar.

There were so many great finds that I had hard time whittling them down for you.  Let’s not waste any more time.

.

Have you ever found a bargain so good that you almost wonder what’s wrong with it?  Don’t wonder, just BUY this stunner of a turquoise suit.

The jacket has a portrait collar and button front with long sleeves. It comes with a peplum pencil skirt, made in the USA.

Here’s the kicker: this entire suit is still available in sizes 6, 8, 10, & 14 (classic sizing).  The site will take another 25% off the current price when you get to checkout, bringing this $250 suit down to $93.75.

If you need summertime suits, don’t let this one slip!

Gray Leather Trapeze Jacket - $103.00

Gray Leather Trapeze Jacket - $103.00

.Sizes 16/18 I got your bargain right here, and it’s a gem.  How would you like a grey leather trapeze jacket?  Yeah?  How about for  $100?  Yes?  Good?  Okay – here you go.

Exclusive to NM, a gray leather trapeze jacket, size XL (16-18).  I adore the feminine details; check out the funnel collar, 3/4 length sleeves and gathers just above the bust.

The trapeze shape is going to make it super flattering and easy to wear.

You’re not going to pay $295, oh no.  Your price is only $103.00.  Get it NOW.  Bargains like this don’t come around very often.

Bettye Mueller Two-Tone Sandal, $195.75

Bettye Mueller Two-Tone Sandal, $195.75

Pardon me for oversharing, but I want to lick these shoes.  I’m a huge Bettye Muller fan; she makes shoes that are feminine, fun and a little funky – frequently with just a slightly retro feel.

Think of these two-tone sandals as an investment:  an investment in deliciousness. Two-tone patent leather open toe sandals come in either blue/purple or hot pink/orange, with a t-strap vamp, and 3″ stacked heel.

If you get open toe shoes, I beg of you not to wear closed toe hose with them.  You can even buy footless hose now!  Seeing covered toes peeking out from an open toe has got to be one of my fashion pet-peeves right behind Visible Panty Lines.  But I digress.

Lots of sizes (5-9) are still available in both colors.  Normally you’d pay $390 for the privilege of slipping these on, but take an extra 25% off the sale price at checkout for a final price of $195.75.

Artist Colony Tunic in Baked Apple, $35

Artist Colony Tunic in Baked Apple, $35

.Let’s go bargain basement.  Is $35 low enough for you?  Buy the Artist Colony cotton tunic and wear it Spring through Fall with jeans or underneath a suit, or even with a pair of bermuda shorts and sandals.

“Boho chic” is still super stylish and popular; the embroidery bib, gathered empire waist and slightly puffed sleeve give this shirt a bohemian vibe without looking messy or out of date.

Pictured here in “baked apple”, it’s also available in black and taffy (ivory), sizes 4-10 contemporary, which runs a little smaller than a “classic” fit.  A size guide is available on the web page.

An empire waist tunic is really flattering if you’ve got a little tummy to hide.   Empire waists stop at your smallest part, just under the bust, and then skim over what’s below.  Three-quarter length sleeves are a great way to also bring the eye up.

.

Juicy Couture Flower-Button Trench Coat, $194.25

Juicy Couture Flower-Button Trench Coat, $194.25

Would someone please buy Juicy Couture’s flower-button trench coat so I don’t?  *cries*

The hardest part of writing a shopping blog is that inevitably you find something you want to buy, and I want this coat.

Juicy’s clothing is always colorful and slightly girly.  How can you not fall for a poinsettia red short cotton trench with 3/4 length sleeves and gold-tone flower buttons?

Sizes petite (0) to XL (14) are still for the taking, but Juicy definitely sizes contemporary so check the size guide.  Save another 25% at checkout, for just over half price off $398 – final price $194.25.

taryn by Taryn Rose Driver Ballerina Flats, $98.25

taryn by Taryn Rose Driver Ballerina Flats, $98.25

.
If you’re like me, you love the look of little flats, but your feet hate them.  Enter taryn by Taryn Rose’s Driver Ballerina flats.

Is it a driving moc?  Is it a ballerina flat?  It’s both and it’s ergonomically designed to fit your feet.

You may care that Taryn Rose was an orthopedic surgeon before she was a shoe designer, or maybe that these oh so cute shoes come in blue and camel patent leather, were made in Italy with fantastic stitching detail.

You should care that instead of $195, they’ll cost you $98.25, and there’s still size 12 available in camel!  Someone tell me I don’t need the blue ones…

.
There’s lots more to see, like this Nanette Lepore Buzz sundress for $81, so don’t wait, and be sure to enter code NMSUMMER for free shipping.

I just saw that Saks is having a big clearance, so I’m off to see what’s there. That’s it for this edition of Shopping Pr0n, my little pr0n panecotta.

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

Pr0n Lust List 6/15

I’m often asked to explain the concept of “Shopping Pr0n”: actual pr0n could be defined as looking at sex that is displayed in a  highly stylized manner which has been made to look appealing, in order to arouse you. 

Shopping is my pr0n.  I love to look at fashion, some of which has been made to look particularly attractive and is certainly appealing to me.  “Pr0n Lust List” will be what I’m lusting at around the web.  Hopefully some of these pieces will find a “forever home” with one of you, most precious pr0n stars.

..

I’ve almost bought this Juicy Sundress at Tobi more times than I care to admit.  It’s just so sunshiney and comfortable looking.

Juicy Linen Sundress, $131, Tobi.com

Juicy Linen Sundress, $131, Tobi.com

I love the wide straps and the empire waist with the wide sash.  So why haven’t I bought it?  One, it’s $131.  For a sundress.  Even I have my limits.

Two, I’m uncertain about how Juicy fits.  The one time I tried on their tops they were cut small in the chest and um, that’s not going to work. 

Finally I’m worried about the low back.  If the entire back of my bra is going to show, it’s a deal breaker.  If you’re pear-y, but smaller on top, consider this dress (and send pictures!)

.

Julie Brown cotton/silk, "Margie" at Bluefly, $172

Julie Brown cotton/silk, "Margie" at Bluefly, $172

Speaking of dresses I shouldn’t want, but do, I’m gaga over this Julie Brown diamond print “Margie” dress at Bluefly.  It’s just so…fabulously Twiggy to me. 

Margie has a rounded neckline with a button close panel, it slips on and has 3/4 length sleeves and a cotton voile lining.  I’d like to see this on a fabulous brunette or Norweigan blonde maybe.

Sizes 2-8 with great legs can still snatch this up for $172 (and send pictures!).  Step away from the white go-go boots and try a pair of retro-stacked pumps.

.

Priorities "Off-Shore" Jacket, $82, Bluefly

Priorities "Off-Shore" Jacket, $82, Bluefly

This Priorities jacket from Bluefly will be mine!  I love layering shorter things over longer things; it can be a really flattering style because it draws the eye up to where you’re smaller, but still lengthens (with the longer piece underneath). 

Normally I frown on one button jackets for busty girls, but because the stance (where the top “V” on the jacket) actually hits here, it’s an exception to the rule.  It’s not a classic one-button style, which are typically for petite women.

$82 is a little high…maybe I can wait until a 20% off sale rolls around.  But omg, how cute is the lining??

.

Kate Spade Tarrytown Small Maedea, $???, KateSpade.com

Kate Spade Tarrytown Small Maedea, $???, KateSpade.com

Kate Spade is taunting me.  That’s right, they’re doing this just to hurt me personally.  They keep putting on sale their Tarrytown Small Maedea in Robbin’s Egg Blue when I don’t have money, and it’s making me cry.  Dear Kate Spade: I can has July 4th sale pleez?  Luv, Din. 

I saw the bag when it first came in and nearly cried because this bag is made for me.  For me, people!  Except that I can’t buy a $575 handbag. 

The other day it was on sale for $4something and then another 25% off, which brought it down to around $350, which is still expensive, but realistic for a really nice handbag.

I’m not getting an iPhone ’til the holidays, so this could be my birthday present! (I really can justify anything.)  Still, I wait.

Bettye Mueller "Bingo", $129 at Simply Soles

Bettye Mueller "Bingo", $129 at Simply Soles

Bettye Mueller sure got it right when she named these shoes “Bingo”.  They’re on sale over at one of my favorite dream stores, SimplySoles.  $129 is a fair price for a pair of designer shoes, and a great price for a pair of Bettye Muellers.

These are just the cutest things I’ve seen.  Where else would you find a red, white and blue Madras plaid on a pair of 1.5″ kitten heels?? <3  Simply Soles has them in stock in 5.5, 6 and 9.5. 

I’m tempted to wishlist them…just in case.  But if you buy these, my little pr0n pudding, send pictures!

 

See by Chloe Daisy Rosette Dress, $347, Tobi.com

See by Chloe Daisy Rosette Dress, $347, Tobi.com

For my last lust of the week, I want to show you a dress that is so unique.  This See by Chloe Daisy Rosette dress looks like a painting. 

The combination of the simple design and the dreamy pattern make this dress a winner for somebody, and not this poor model who looks so unhappy.  What gives, Tobi?

$347 on final sale (was $695), European sizes 38 – 44, which are U.S….4-10?  I can see this on some fashion-forward beauty with dark hair and pale skin.  Or maybe a redhead! 

I played with this dress over on Polyvore (and actually if you’re a 40 or 42, you can get it for $240 on Net-A-Porter) but I’d love to see someone rock it in real life.

.
Alas, if I were to share with you everything I was lusting after it would probably take up this entire blog.  But I hope you’ve enjoyed some of my favorite pr0n this week!

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

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?

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?

Sample Sale Pr0n: Navigating Sample Sales

Hi pron friends, I hope you’ve been well during our time apart.  Today in Shopping Pr0n, we’re going to discuss the “Sample Sale”: websites that are devoted just to designer extras and samples.  With patience and determination you may be able to find top designers, at deeply discounted prices; they may be new or straight off the runway, but they’re almost always in limited quantities and sizes.  Act quickly!

Jenny Dyer London Turquoise Dress

Jenny Dyer London Turquoise Dress

Even if a store is not just for sample sales, if you’re willing to risk losing a piece of clothing, or buy for next year, you may be able to get what you want drastically reduced when there are only a few sizes left.

Two of my favorite colors for Spring are cobalt blue, and turquoise – I’ve been showing them to you non-stop: in Spring Color TrendsSunday Brunch, and the Almost March Edition of Pr0n Plus.  

This turqoise Jenny Dyer dress is from Catwalk to Closet, which is designer samples and extras.  I chose it also because it’s available in UK 12-16 (US 10-14ish). 

This dress retails for £325, but is selling for £60 or about $85, for a top of the line designer dress.  Do you pay for the name with designer clothing? Sure.  But you also get outstanding fit, fabric and quality.

.

Here’s my first attempt at a suit outfit.  This matching thing is harder than I thought!  I’m working with a suit by the unfortunately named Hickey Style.  It’s a tan cotton/wool twill suit, originally $1095, now $385.  The jacket is a 3-button, with flat-front pants.  It’s made in the U.S.A., and available in a smattering of regular and long sizes.

I love a man in a suit

Clearance Sale Suits

I picked out two shirts: the dark blue is $89, down from $225 at Barney’s Co-Op.  It’s cotton poplin, which is kind of a heavier weight cotton. 

With either shirt you could skip the jacket and put it with the pants and these Ted Baker perforated boots from Bluefly, or use the jacket and a pair of dark wash jeans.

I loooove a man in nice shoes, but even I fall asleep eventually looking at them, which is why I like the detail on the top and sides of these boots, size 13; they were $210 and are now $87.99.  The shirt has a small navy, white and burgundy floral pattern, and I chose a sky blue, navy and burgundy tie in a wider pattern by Moschino at Forzieri

If you keep things in the same color genre…it should work.  We’ll learn together, my little pr0n papayas!

The other shirt is a beautiful bright blue with alternating blue and purple stripes.  “Vibert” is at Bluefly; $54.39 down from $125.  I tried two ties from Hickey Style at Bluefly; a brown with white, and an orange with little green army men. :D  Men, please let me know how I did here!  Would you wear these?

.

Here’s another way to wear orange: with green and brown.  This outfit ended up having almost an ethnic feel to it.  The orange and white tunic is from Tory Burch, a designer whose logo flats became so ubiquitous so quickly that every bone in my fashionista body rebelled.  Eventually more of her line came out and I was in love. 

Tory, Lily, Robert & Kate

Ethnic Casual for Spring

 Anyway,  the tunic is from Catwalk to Closet and retails for £165, but sells in a Size 6 for £65 (about $90USD).  Buy it before I do! 

With the tunic, try these Robert Rodriguez Latte Capris (or any capris) with an embroidered waistband (multiple sizes!).  Normally $275, yours for $90.89.

We’re working with orange as the main color, and accenting around it.  I didn’t intend to put the outfit together this way, but usually colors will be “in” for a season, and you’ll find lots.  The necklace is on sale for $98 at Shoptwigs; the flats are Lily Pulitzer: originally $248, now $79 at Simply Soles.  Why?  Because they’re only in brown, size 6.5.  But we could have worn them in green to match the necklace. 

Finally this cutie pie of a Kate Spade tote!  Usually $295, but at SmartBargains.com for $119.97!  You’re lucky I don’t buy totes…

.

I always save my favorite for last; this set just makes me squeal with delight!  I’m such a girly girl, so anything that makes me feel that way makes me happy.  Again, every piece in this outfit just kind of came together.  Start with this Chloe (!) A-line purple skirt at Catwalk to Closet.  Pronistas, this is a £475 skirt for £99!!!! 

Iris

A girly set in yellow, green and purple

So…$130, 100% linen, French sizes 38 & 42 or US 10 & 14ish. Unbeliveable!

Choose from two blouses: the yellow is Juicy Couture: $89 down from $178 – sizes 10-14!  The white blouse is from Graham & Spencer at FunkyLaLa (funky!).  Originally $250, now $75!!  I can’t stop using exclamation marks!! 

The cute purple clutch is at Bluefly, and about half-off at $53.09.  The croc flats are Sam Edleman’s  from celebrity-fave Kitson L.A.  Once $95, now $41.

Okay – my favoritest pieces.  These adorable yellow/green sunglasses are dvb, which I actually didn’t know is Victoria Beckham’s line.  LOL. Bad Fashionista!  At £60, they’re still a fun splurge, but it’s better than £165.  Finally these pumps!  Yellow patent leather Colin Robertson, peep toe, slingback, gradiated 4″ heel for $65 at Kitson, sizes 6-10!  Are you ready for this? Originally $345!  I wish you could see how excited I am. :D

.

Well!  Good deals are exhausting!  If I’m lucky, I’ll have ready for you tonight Pr0n Plus: The very best in plus size fashion.  Pr0n Plus is every Monday, my lovely pr0n addicts!

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

Sales Pr0n – Dying of the Flu Edition

Thanks for coming back my pr0n muffins.  I’m dying of the flu and wanted to make sure I showed you these sales before I did.  If I trail off mid-outfit, just administer apple juice.

I once read that everybody loves a parade; I’m not sure how they reached that conclusion.  Frankly I’d like to see their research methodology,

Originally $395, now $198

Originally $395, now $198

but my point being that everybody likes a sale.  Feel free to insert the comment of your choice about the recession here.  Kind of like those Choose Your Own Adventure Books I used to read.

Remember the Fourth Rule of Shopping Pr0n: Just because something is 75% off, does not mean you need it.  It’s very much related to the First Rule. Almost Rule 1a.  My father taught me to ask myself this before buying something: Where will I wear it? If you don’t know, no matter how fabulous it is, put it back.


Take for instance this butter yellow cropped leather motorcycle jacket from Domaleather.  Let’s look closely: slightly puffed shoulders, stitching detail at the neck and along the zipper, angled front pockets, 3/4 length sleeves with an elastic wrist, and a slim cropped fit.

RevolveClothing is selling this jacket in yellow (sizes M,L) and dark violet (which I might actually like more, size M only).  This piece of art was originally $481 and is now $241.

Half off leather. *cries*  Someone please buy this and send me a picture so I can pretend I’m you.

.

Now here’s something you will wear over and over and over:  From Thomas Pink‘s “Richard Nicholl’s Collection” is this “Ruth” women’s dress.

The image is crap, so click to see the full size one.  This really is classic design at its best.  Thomas Pink is top quality and style.

This is a 100% cotton shirt dress with trims on cuffs, pockets and hem, a  pleated bib (just what you’d think it would be), roll up sleeves, self fabric covered buttons and detachable fabric belt.  It looks gray, but it’s actually a black pinstripe.

These are UK sizes, but their handy dandy size chart will conveniently convert you. For future reference they go up to a U.S. size 18, but the highest this dress is in stock is a 16. Why? Well it was first selling for $500 (yes, that’s right) and it’s now $189. At better than half price, remember the Second Rule of Shopping Pr0n: Get it while it lasts.  Supplies are limited, first come, first served.

.

Now, almost all – if not all – of the shoes I’ve shown you here on the Pr0n (as I like to call it) have been heels.  Often very high heels.  (You know what they say: the higher the heel, the closer to God), but that’s really only because I haven’t found flats pr0nish enough to meet my standards for you, muffins!  I care!  Look at these and tell me they’re not the cutest things you’ve ever seen (go on – tell me.).

“Foxy Ballerina” from Marc by Marc Jacobs; once these beauties were $425, now they’re $213. And if you had $213, wouldn’t you spend it on these fuchsia (so hard to spell) or charcoal patent leather flats?

They’re actually a 1″ heel, which is better for your feet, and have a fox ear detail at the vamp with a square toe.  They’re available for your foxy pleasure at Bergdorf Goodman.

.

But really, really what makes my heart go pitter pat are a pair of drool inducing heels, like these at ShopBop.com.  Please ignore the idiotic caption on the website; what you need to know is that these are “Folded Ornament Wedges” from Leopoldo Giordano.  If I ever meet Leo, I’d like to hug him. That’s all.  Just a hug.

It goes down like this: 4″ patent leather wedges in Blue or Taupe (get the Blue), made in Italy. Marked down from $545, these shoes-of-a-lifetime can be yours for $163.50.

There’s a tab detail at the vamp, and if you look closely you can see a seam detail along the heel.  If you go to the website you can look at the shoe from all angles. *giggles*  (No, you don’t need to tell me I lack maturity.  I know.)

.

Really good fashion is all about details.  Details and quality.  Details, quality and fit.  Never mind – before this turns into the Spanish Inquisition, let’s look at this zip front skirt by Michen, which has all 3. 

Take a beautiful wool/nylon/cashmere pencil skirt with a silk lining, add a waistband with a tortoise shell colored button, a bit of pleating just to kick it up a notch, and a zipper running on the diagonal, and you’ll have this skirt.

If you’re a size 4 or 6, head over to Tobi.com and plunk down your $150 for a half off skirt.  This beautiful skirt is made in the U.S.A. used to be $301.

.

One of the things I love, especially on bigger women, is a beautiful, large print in a bold color.   Apparently the stylists at American Idol agreed, because they used this Diva Halter in red from Missphit.

.Admittedly, I find the clothing at Missphit hit or miss, but their hits are bullseyes, and so are their prices. This was originally $45, and it’s now $32.

This chiffon high neck halterneck actually has a full front and back lining so your not showing anything you don’t intend to (*cough*) and a smocked bottom band. It’s sized (and available) 1x-3x, which Missphit says is about a 14w to 24W.  Can’t miss.

.There’s another saying (Yes, another saying. Deal.): into every man’s life a little cashmere must fall.  That’s right isn’t it? If you or someone you know needs a little cashmere to fall into his life, head on over to Bluefly.com.

If you’re a small or an extra-large, you’re in luck!  Imagine slipping into this charcoal/silver/blue basketweave v-neck sweater by ADAM.

Original price: $375, the actual retail price of your showcase sweater is $179.99 for a small, $109.99 for an XL (No clue, don’t ask.)

My friend and reader, Rachel, turned me on to LunaBoston.com, which is filled to the brim with different brands of handbags, shoes and accessories.  Bright color is everywhere for spring, and it’s all over Lorelai’s “Madison” tote.

Madison comes in green only, with a bright pink fabric lining.  Black and yellow sold out, and green is apparently available only in very limited quantities so don’t hesitate if you love this bag (Damn. I really should be on QVC.)

.

.Men should not be afraid of a little color either.  Take for instance this 1960s blazer from Juicy Couture. Now, can we all agree that this is in fact a nice blazer, and not over the top? Thank you. It’s just that my friend Deka over at That’s Hideous, found these truly atrocious Juicy ski goggles., and felt the need to denigrate Juicy. *snif*. So I felt the need to show her some very subdued Juicy.

I’d be happy to go on a date with any man wearing this blazer.  It’s nice, it’s purple and I like purple, it’s stylish and proves he put some thought into his outfit, and it’s Juicy!  Someone I’m on a date with wearing Juicy? Bonus!  Either he dresses well or knows how to find someone who does, which is equally valid.

Anyway, they’re calling this burgundy, and cotton.  It looks like corduroy to me, but it could just be a nubby cotton (yeah, i know corduroy is cotton).  It once was $218, and it’s now $163.

.

Before we wrap up, you must see this organic cotton and bamboo “Alison” dress from Sublet.

One thing you should know about your blogger is that she has ridiculously sensitive skin.  I wear very little wool, no angora or lambswool (which I guess is a type of wool).  Your dear blogger only wears cotton, silk, cashmere, or soft synthetics.  So I’m adoring all the new clothing that’s coming out in organic cotton and bamboo. Bamboo!  Who knew?

This dress is just sexy as all get out.  It does have a deep v-neck, so if you can’t wear stick-on boobies or similar, put a silk or cotton cami underneath.  This is beautiful detailing that is great to expose an upper body and camouflage what’s going on below the waist.

Oh – the site I found it at is The Green Loop.com.  They were selling the dress for $242, and it’s now $121 in black.  Made in the U.S.A.

.

It wouldn’t be pr0n without lingerie (plus it gets me site hits).  I searched high and low for some lovely cotton lingerie on sale, but it was not to be found.  So we’ll skip the sale and go for the comfy and sexy  from sheandme.com .

How yummy are these boyshorts that are solid in the front and pattern in the back, with a little lace trim?  The solid comes in pomegranete, ivory, mocha, navy, chocolate and sienna. 94% modal, 6% spandex, made in the U.S.A $30

Happy bargain hunting, my little pr0nistas!

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