Father’s Day


Father’s day is coming up soon, so here are some great ways to get great gifts (and save $$) for the father(s) in your lives!

With the “new” Bing live and running, I’ve checked out some cool electronics for all you gadget dads out there.  I personally would get an iPod, but I wouldn’t discount the Zune products either.  Coming from the land of Microsoft, it has very cool features that most iPods don’t have, but I would still get the iPod anyway LOL.

And with summer being on the horizon, check out the summer sales that DSW has for you fathers out there.  There are some good shoes on sale here that I wouldn’t miss buying!

Let’s not forget Your Personal Shopper’s favorites, like Armani Exchange’s summer sale event.  Up to 70% off of your latest Armani fashions!  Check out their Under $29 sale and their Tees selection as well!

There you go… That should give you some ideas on how to wear different types of shoes for your day.  Be creative, and always be yourself.  Have fun shopping!

Missing Nordstroms


Ok, so being from the Northwest, I am so jonesing for Nordstrom and am missing it terribly. If you’re in the south, you’ll probably notice that there are NO Nordstrom available. NONE. While Nashville is supposed to be a city that is getting a Nordstrom, it’s not coming anytime soon. So I thought, “Hey, online shopping is awesome, and I don’t have to be in any particular state to get stuff, so I’ll bring online shopping to you!”

Now that spring is here, Nordstrom always comes out with great products to fit the season. I always like linen in the spring – it’s very light, comfortable, and breathes easy on the skin, especially if it’s hot like it is here in the south.

Take this linen pants by Michael Kors, for example. White or off-white colors are classic in style and appeal, and Michael Kors creates timeless pieces very well. You can definitely dress this up by pairing this bad boy with either a bright/spring-color button down shirt (think baby blue, spring green, or yellow in either linen, cotton, cotton blends), a nice brown or black leather belt, and definitely some Kenneth Cole shoes, and accessorized by your choice of watch and rings. Or, you can tone it down a notch with either a short-sleeve polo pique from Armani Exchange and driving mocs from Sketchers or Banana Republic to make it a bit more relaxed and fun. Want a totally casual feel? Get some funky tees from Armani Exchange or Express and follow it up with nice spring sandals.

You can also switch the pants from belt-oriented to drawstring ties like this one from BOSS. This makes a great casual feel, especially with the right tee or shirt and accessories.

There are great sales going on right now at Nordstrom, so go check them out and have fun!
