Roses are Red...

Over a year ago H&M did the Garden Collection and one of the must have items from it was the rose dress. I got one in each color ( white and red) and I've worn them a few times, seen here and here and here.
Ever since I posted the lovely rose dresses I have been getting questions, comments and emails on where to find something similar. I have always kept my eyes peeled for something that is equally as fabulous and last week while in Zara I saw a lovely dress that is about as close as it gets.

Do A Good Deed

Photobucket

It's that time of year... spring cleaning! Need a little motivation? Gap and Goodwill have come together to get people to clean out their closets and donate to a good cause!

Starting tomorrow, May 19, bring your old clothes to any Gap location, and they'll donate them to Goodwill for you. On top of that, they'll hand over a 30% discount off your entire purchase (full-priced items and sale!) YAY!. The program ends May 29, so get to it and starting cleaning out your closet!
The donations will be made in support of the Donate Movement, "an effort powered by Goodwill to educate the public on the positive impacts donations can have on both people and the planet," according to the non-profit.

Happy spring cleaning and shopping :)

Micky London

I'm back from vacation and those pictures will be coming soon but first I had to share this amazing new scarf line, Micky London.

Micky London was launched in September 2009 by Abba and Micky Manchanda. The sibling duo set out to offer a brand that brings sophisticated, sexy, unique assortments of fashion scarves, jewelry and item ready-to-wear pieces to its customers. The designs represent an attitude inspired by glamour and glitz of New York, London, Dubai and Bombay, the cities that the siblings consider home.


I'm borderline obsessed with these scarves! They will be perfect this spring and summer over a crisp white tank. The beaded necklace design is so unique and fabulous! You are able to wear the scarf so many ways and with so many outfits, the options are endless!
