So, I forgot to tell you guys how I met Clinton Kelly a couple weeks ago. I'll save you the long story about me gushing to him and just let you know that by the end of the evening we were besties. Well, at least that's how it went in my mind. Regardless, he was really polite while I gave him my whole "I love you so much" spiel and even told me he loved my outfit! High praise indeed. So why did I meet him? He was a hosting a fashion show at Macy's -using clothes all from- you guessed it- Macy's! It turned out to be a really fab show- I bought a couple of the garments featured (no surprise) but was especially excited to see one of my fave brands on the catwalk- Brahmin! I've done posts about them before, but the Brahmin bunch is truly amazing. So well made, while being classic but on-trend at the same time. I seriously can't get enough! Which is why I am delighted to alert you all that they are having their famous tent sale this weekend! Shoppers can expect to see thousands of bags regularly priced between $200-$500 reduced an average of 65%! The tent sale is held twice a year, and I for one, am determined to get there!
One of the gorgeous bags catching my eye: The Tucker Satchel Bag

As I finally caught up with my boyfriend, TiVo, the past couple of days- I was stopped dead in my tracks by Zoe Hart's dress in the season finale of "Hart of Dixie". I won't tell you what happens, but the episode is worth watching- if for the dress alone! It's sold out- but you couldn't afford it anyway! Ok, fine, I couldn't afford it anyway. I found a couple other dresses that have similar elements- for me, the tulle is the big seller!

alice + olivia Ona Leather Bustier Gown (sold out)
This Adrianna Papell embellished Tulle Gown has a similar look
This dress by Corey Lynn Calter has the same feel of the gown- again with tulle and strapless, but shorter length.
Or you can get the alice + olivia kid sister to the dress- the Beckinsale Tiered-skirt dress- so cute!
OK, I know, I've been sleepin' on the blog- but come on- mama's got to hold down a real job, too! Anyway, if anything was going to bring me out of hibernation you know it was gonna be for this "shopping is my cardio" t-shirt. After Tuesday's "The Mindy Project" episode lots of people were asking me about the shirt/one friend said I am Mindy Kaling. I'm honored on all fronts. So here's the skinny. The shirt is by Wildfox Couture, but the exact match in the pink color is only available on eBay. It can, however, be yours in white. I just clicked to purchase...it was a workout.
