Matilda Jane Shopping

It’s no secret, that my daughter and I like to shop. So when we were asked to host a Matilda Jane trunk show, we couldn’t say no.

I had never been to a Matilda Jane trunk show but it was so much fun! I loved looking through all the clothes and then getting to try them on. We had a mini fashion show going on.

Elizabeth (our hostess or as the Matilda Jane company calls them, trunk keeper), is helping Courtney decide on some things to try on.

Here’s one of the dresses from their spring line on Courtney.

These pants are so comfortable and cute! I purchased a pair to wear on my plane ride to San Francisco.

Their girl dresses are beyond adorable. If we had any little girls in our family we would be getting them one of these dresses for Easter.

Courtney tried on another dress. I love the mixed patterns in this dress.

I can’t wait to wear some of the pieces I purchased. Have you ever been to a Matilda Jane trunk show?

Beauty for the Heart~~I’ve had one of those weeks, where I’ve heard a lot of bad news. People around me that have been diagnosed with cancer. My heart breaks and I’m reminded again how fragile life is and we need to live each day to the fullest.

Psalm 46:1 says, God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. I’m so thankful for this.

I also read this quote by Audrey Hepburn and liked it.

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.” 

Have a blessed day!

Need a Personal Shopper?

Have you ever wished you had a personal shopper? Do you hate the idea of going to store after store trying to find something to wear?

Well, I might have the perfect thing for you! It’s called Stitch Fix.

Stitch Fix

What is Stitch Fix

Stitch Fix is a personal styling service. A group of stylists put together 5 stylish pieces of clothing (sometimes jewelry and/or accessories items are included) and ship them directly to you!  It’s a great way to add to your current wardrobe and get a hold of pieces that you might otherwise not have access to. No two Fixes are alike. Each one is hand–picked just for you.

How does it work?

1. Sign Up (There may be a brief waiting period based how well our current inventory matches you. Don’t worry, wait times are just a few days to a few weeks.) 

2. Complete Your Style Profile~~After you get your welcome email,  you can start immediately on your Style Profile. We need to know your size, shape, style, price preferences, and lifestyle to get your Fix right. It’ll take about 10 minutes.

They will ask you questions like, “What do you think of the style below?”

2. Schedule a Stitch Fix~~Pick a date, and we’ll send you a box of 5 clothing and accessory items we’ve hand-picked just for you. Schedule monthly, or as often as you like—it’s your call. You pay a $20 styling fee up front, which serves as credit toward anything in your Stitch Fix shipment.

3. Try it all on~Try on everything they send you—you never know what you’ll like until you see it on. Pair it with items already in your closet. Each item includes style cards with ideas and inspiration on how to wear it.

4. Decide~Take 3 days to decide what you’ll keep. Pay for just what you want to keep, return the rest in our pre-paid mailing bag at any USPS mailbox. Keep all 5 items and you save 25% off the entire shipment.

You can set up your Stitch Fix monthly or schedule them whenever you need them. You can cancel at anytime!

I’ll be receiving my Stitch Fix in two weeks, and I’ll be sharing it with you!

What do you think? Would you like to have a personal shopper?

You Have To See What I’ve Found!

Happy almost New Year!! 2012 is quickly approaching and I can. not. be. lieve. it!

I’ve spent this week catching up on all the things I got behind on the few weeks before Christmas. I would like to get 2012 off to a good start~~~if that’s possible.

One of the great things about the week after Christmas are all the sales! I always plan to put money back so I can snag a bunch of them but that usually doesn’t happen and this year’s no exception. :-(

Thankfully, I did get some gift cards for Christmas and I had some Kohl’s cash to spend, so I wanted to share with you what I bought.

My sweater I purchased from Banana Republic. I had a gift card and it was on sale, so I paid $17 for it and I love it! I love buying from Banana Republic because their clothes last forever.

My favorite find are these boots by Simply Vera at Kohl’s. I love the Simply Vera brand and I think these boots are adorable! I love the touch of bling! The boots were regularly $109 but they were 50% off. I had $40 in Kohl’s cash so I got them for $15.89. Woo hoo!!

So what about you, have you shopped for any great after Christmas bargains?

Beauty For the Heart~~Isaiah 26:3-4, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you! Trust in the Lord always, for the Lord God is the eternal Rock.”

This was one of my verses that I read this morning during my devotion and I pray I keep my focus on Jesus as I begin 2012 because He is the only one who can give perfect peace.

It’s The Weekend!

Aww the weekend is here! I’m always thankful for Saturday mornings when I can sleep a little later. Today I’m going to spend some time with this little guy……

Have I mentioned how much I love him??  I have kissed that face so many times, I’m surprised he has any cheeks left!

Courtney and I are heading to some specialty stores today to buy Colt’s Christmas outfit. We have an idea (or should I say she has an idea) of what we want so we’re hoping to get it today.

What are your plans? Are you doing any Christmas decorating yet?
