Macys Clothing and GIveaway Winner

Hey everyone, I had a question in the comments about Macy's and plus sizing. The Macy's I used to shop in Tampa has a large plus size section on the second floor. This department carried most of their store brands, such as Charter Club and INC as well as some other brands such as Tommy Hilfiger and Michael Kors. And they carried 0X/ 12W! Which I love, its hard to find that size. Also, if you are an inbetween, many of their brands offer an 18 in misses sizes.

Confession: I have this weird thing with Macy's - when I feel like I have a lack of patterns in my closet, I go into Macy's and just grab some tops until I feel fully "patterned" again. Haha. They carry the best "non-solids"

At any rate, here are a few items from Macys I have featured on the blog.

1. This pattern blouse:

2. This Navy Linen Blouse

3.The floral top

And finally, our Macy's winner: FAWN!

Thanks for reading, and playing everyone! :-)

I have another giveaway coming up that is for ladies size 8 - 30. So stay tuned! :-)

Talbots Coupon and Gigi's Sale Thread

Hey guys, currently, Talbot's has their sale items marked down 50% (prices as marked on site), some non-sale items are 50% off (prices as marked on site) and now, there is an additional 25% off coupon (and free shipping) if you use 024840756. This coupon worked for me, while I was logged-in to my account, so I will say it is probably a coupon anyone can use. (I did not receive the coupon directly, a friend emailed it to me.) Please note, sometimes they turn these off when they "get out" online, so just be aware of that.

Be sure and watch for what is final sale, and what is not as well. Gigi has opened a weekly "swap/sell "thread for Talbots final sale merchandise, which is awesome! We never needed one before, but this might help ease the sting of final sale choices gone wrong ;-)

As always, thanks for reading! :-)

Talbot's on What Not to Wear Tonight!

Wow! So on tonight's makeover, Aleishe, they took her right into Talbot's after she had a tough day finding clothes that fit, and she looked lovely in their clothes :-)

I wish TLC's website was updated, but it appears to have been abandoned after last season LOL. Should her photos and or shopping list ever come available, I will post. :-)

They had her in the above blouse during the in-studio reveal, and it looked so pretty.

Hoping to be back on my regularly scheduled posting soon. I have another giveaway starting tomorrow, which is going to be nice. :-)

As always, thanks for reading~!

Basic Stuff

Hey everyone -

Its back to the cold weather basics for me! Sweaters and scarves seem to be my life these days. Hoping for the sun to come back soon.

I know everyone has been asked, but do you guys have any resolutions? I usually don't do resolutions, but I thought I would try it this year. So I came up with one. I plan to try and wean myself off regular soda. I drink ALOT of soda. Like 2-3 cokes a day, every day. So, my big resolution is to cut waaay back. Exciting no? :-P

Also - glad to see you guys signing up for the big $130 CSN giveaway! I was really excited about that one. I have a few other cool giveaways coming up, one starting later this week, in fact, so hope you like giveaways!
