Poll Results: Your Favorite Place to Shop

Based on the results of the poll which asked for your favorite place to shop, it appears that majority of you (75%) are like me and prefer to shop at discount stores. My favorite discount stores include TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Loehmann's. I can't bring myself to pay full price for too much of anything. And although it takes a lot more time to dig through it all, the bargains you receive are well worth it. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy shopping EVERYWHERE - department stores, boutiques and online stores. After all, diversification should not only apply to your stock portfolio but to your wardrobe as well.

Now, for the poll results...

Discount Stores - 75%
Department Stores - 12%
Boutiques - 12%
Internet - 0%


$12.50?! Could it be?!

I'm normally not a fan of inexpensive shoes. My favorite quote is "You get what you pay for". This is usually very applicable to the quality of shoes. However, I recently caught wind of this fabulous Pleated Satin Pump at Forever 21. It's available at an unbelievable price of $12.50!! These are perfect for those upcoming holiday parties and at a price like that, who has time to focus on quality. From the looks of it, many will think that you paid much more for these darlings. They are available in many luscious colors including purple, blue and hot pink. So, go ahead and buy as many as your heart desires!

To purchase these, visit your local Forever 21 store or buy online at www.Forever21.com. Happy shopping!

Happy Birthday to ME!!

So, when I found out that Joe Ponce had moved on from L.A.M.B. to create his own shoe line, I was immediately interested. Velvet Angels is a line of shoes that is made for the woman who who loves to make a bold statement and doesn't mind being the center of attention. The shoes are simply vivacious!

Upon my first visit to the website, I fell in love with the 'Catty' shoe. With its unique craftmanship (it even has an engraved bullet in the back) and the extreme high heel, the shoe is the perfect mix of beauty and sex appeal.

Needless to say, yesterday was my birthday and to my surprise, my hubby presented me with my very own pair! Although the warm weather has past, I can't wait to strut in these in the spring.

To obtain a pair of your own visit VelvetAngels.com.

And feel free to drop hints to your significant other to splurge a little on a shoe that I think you'll both appreciate. ;)
