Hautelook! Steve Madden

I don’t know if you follow Hautelook.com, but its a great way to buy designer items, for way less than designer prices.  Today one of their specials is on Steve Madden shoes.  There are several that I love on the site, but I think I’ll pass, as I’ve been buying too much as of late.  Here are a few that I thought were really cute:

1. Gretta

Comes in a few different colors and if I buy one today, this is it!  Regular $130.00, Hautelook $60.00

2.  Draama-very cute everyday pump in a very hard to find cognac color…Regular:  $170.00, Hautelook:  $70.00

Draama Platform Pump

3.  Nockout-3 words, Leopard print wedge, gotta love it!  Regular: 200.00, Hautelook:  $70.00

Congrats to The Carter’s!

I missed getting to salute Beyonce and Jay-Z on the arrival of their baby, Blue Ivy!   I’m excited like I know them personally!  And come on the baby has already set a record, for the being the youngest person to chart on Billboard!  You gotta love it.

Spring Wardrobe Wishlist #1

Don’t shoot me…but we got a new puppy, and that’s why I haven’t posted.  But I’m here now, right!

I wanted to share some of the items on my Spring Wardrobe Checklist.  I stop buying winter clothes at the end of Dec. b/c the climate in my part of the world is fairly mild most of the year.  When I do shop the Winter clearance sales, the pieces have to be able to transition for Spring/Summer/Fall, because otherwise its not worth it for me!

These are some items that I saw today, or either bought already!

1.  Floral Wingtips(Forever 21)

I almost hate to post these, for fear that the entire stock will be sold out.  But I can see these paired up w/summer dresses, linen or lightweight trousers, or shorts…too cute.

2. Cute Dresses

I fiend for dresses!  Unfortunately, I don’t really like to wear them in the Winter.  So another reason I can’t wait for March!   H&M has some really cute ones, in awesome colors.   Can you say Papaya?  That’s the name of this color…beautiful!

 

3.  MAC Hot Gossip Lippy

My current fave!  How did I miss this one all these years?  Its a cream finish lipstick, you just have to try it!  I bought this one last week, and can’t stop wearing it.

 

I’ll be back with more goodies tomorrow.  I promise!
