Fossil Watches: A Timely Discovery

Warm weather is almost here, which means that it will soon be time to show off your tanned arms adorned with bangles and other accessories. I’ve never been much a watch wearer. I own a couple of watches but not wear them occasionally, i.e. when I feel they add something to my outfit.

Some of the new watches from Fossil, though, may make me reconsider. These ‘clocks’ are so stylish and sharp that I may start looking at my wrist again for the time instead of my cell phone.

Gotta Get Gap Shoes for Spring 2010

As things get busier and busier at work, I find myself with less and less time to go shopping. I’ve started buying more things online. If I do end up going to the mall, I usually don’t have time to go to one store for a dress, another for shoes, another for jewelry, etc.

As a result, I’m always on the lookout for stores where I can get everything I need in one stop. Gap has become one of my new favorites for this exact reason; I get get an outfit and shoes in one place. It’s not always easy to find a brand that does both equally well. I’m really loving the flats and sandals at Gap this season, check them out below:

Nude Pumps: Splurge vs. Steal

Nude and tan-colored shoes are another big trend for Spring 2010. Since they go with every other color, they’ll quickly become one of your most dependable staples. You might as well say that nude is the new black. As an added bonus, nude pumps have an incredible leg-lengthening effect, making your them look a mile long!

Spring 2010 Trend: Nautical and Sailor-Inspired

Stripes, anchors, seersucker print, macrame details–these are the themes for this spring. Whichever you choose, be sure to pair navy with white. Think summer spent yachting around or hanging out on white sand beaches as you channel your inner sailor.

Croco Rainboots: Style for Rainy Days

Croco  rainboots are my new obsession. I think it’s a genuis idea to use a croco embossed texture, which we often see on designer handbags, on a functional shoe. It instantly gives the black rubber boots a touch of city-chic. I could easily see these croco boots with jeans and a cute cardigan, without worrying about how they affect the overall look of the outfit.

This week I joined SmartShoppersUnite.com, a social network for, as the name suggests, smart shoppers. The site features discussion boards, member profile pages that include photo albums and a blogging section, games, a coupon section and more. I’d describe it as Facebook for people who love scoping out the best deals on fashion, home decor and other areas.

Today was my first day of posting and hanging out on Smart Shoppers Unite and it was so much fun. I’ve already “met” a bunch of great people and picked up some super useful tips like how to give your room a makeover for under $150. There is so much neat information on the site, with everyone sharing their favorite savings tips and latest bargains.

I’m going to be contributing to the site on a regular basis in the coming months.  I highly recommend that you guys sign up on SSU and join the conversation. If you like the type of stuff  we talk about here, I guarantee that you’ll like what you find on SSU.  It will be a great opportunity for us to talk; my profile name is StealThisDress. See you there!

Pink Pumps Make the World Go Round

This may be my favorite StealThisDress! post to date. Pink heels! What more could you ask for? If your style is similar to mine, nothing. The shows below, all of which I found on Zappos, to me all scream Carrie Bradshaw and it’s fabulous. Just imagine how amazing any of these pairs would look with a dark-colored dress or dark jeans and a fancy top.

My favorite pair is probably the second one from the top. That jewel-encrusted heel is to die for. Let’s see, only about three more months until it gets warm enough to wear shoes like these outside. Here’s to a summer of pink pumps coming soon!

GoJane.com, a Must-Visit Site

Suede Zipper High Heel Boot ($22.99, www.gojane.com)GoJane.com is an online clothing and accessories retailer that should be part of any budget-conscious fashion lover’s arsenal. The shoes are, by far, my favorite thing at GoJane. If boots are your footwear of choice, let’s just say that you may never want to shop anywhere else again after you see the inventory at GoJane. I’m going to leave it at that and let you be the judge when you check it out. Stud Embellished Suede Finish Boot ($24.99, www.gojane.com)

The site also has some seriously fabulous deals on selected items–I want to say every week, but don’t quote me on that. This week, for example, you can get a long-sleeved V-neck t shirt for $4, some dressy tops in the $6-$14 range and sweater boots that look very similar to Cardy Uggs for $14.99.

So, have a look. This site is really a gem. I heard about it through another blog and have been hooked since.
