:: roam if you want to ::

Kate Pierson of the B52's is still the coolest thing. The hair, the go-go dancing, the eyeliner...the hair. I thought I'd take the liberty of updating her look from 1989's Roam, but to tell you the truth, it actually doesn't need much updating. Which makes her even cooler. Twenty-four years later and she's still got it.

Oh, and that teal sequined number? It's $100 from French Connection. Is it too early to start prepping for New Year's Eve?

:: take the cakestyle ::

Oh my gosh, I love when this happens. Cakestyle is having their seasonal sample sale! I've only had the pleasure of getting styled by them once (thanks to a Gilt City deal where I paid $150 for $300 of clothing), but their stuff is just divine. And once again, they're selling off their extra inventory at just a fraction of the cost. We're talking up to 50% off DVF, Joie, Chaiken, Shoshanna...okay, I'm getting light-headed.

Here's what I'm grabbing...I'm dying for anything with a dainty little collar lately:

All sales are final, and shipping is free! Go, go, GO!

:: chambray all the way ::

Anything too trendy makes me nervous. And self conscious. Unless I really love it on its own (ponchos, ballet flats, rose gold anything), I won't wear something just for fashion's sake. But the chambray wave that's hitting summer 2013 is something I'm happy to let smack my closet in the face. It's classic and versatile and so easy to transition into fall.
chambray all the way

:: rent the runway dress sale. i die ::

I came late to the Rent the Runway party, but I am a total fan now. From their descriptions to their search functionality to their super organized shipping processes, I have had nothing but the BEST of experiences with these folks.

And now, I hear that they're SELLING some of their dresses. Be still my retail-loving heart. Here are a few of my favorites:
