Today’s Marshall’s Haul!!

12 Dec

P.S. Don’t forget to enter my Pea Pod Paper & Gifts Giveaway, only 2 more days!!

It’s been a while since I took a stroll through Marshall’s, (read: writing my senior thesis prevented me from seeing the light of day for the past four months so thank the lord that’s over) so I was excited to spend a leisurely afternoon searching for deals with my mom now that I’m home in Austin for winter break. You can never go into Marshall’s looking for something specific, and yet you always find something new that you need! In addition to the things I found below, they also were fully stocked with Juicy Couture jackets, Michael Kors trench coats, and Cynthia Rowley dresses. Miraculously, I left the story without purchasing any clothes… but here’s what I scored instead:


I scored a gold Cynthia Rowley clutch for $24.99 almost identical to this $58 Lilly Pulitzer version that I was lusting over at the store yesterday! This will be the perfect clutch for NYE and is just big enough for my phone and new digital camera that Mom and Dad gave me for Hanukkah :)

I scored two packages of 10 lilly Pulitzer notecards for only $4.99 each, regular price $20 each on the website. These are going to make lovely stationary for writing sweet notes to go with holiday gifts, as well as sending out thank yous! I love handwritten correspondence.



Last but definitely not least, I was absolutely shocked to see a copy of one of my favorite blogger’s books in the book section for $4.95, even though it’s still available at Target for $18.95. My Mom The Style Icon collects vintage photos of readers’ moms to highlight retro fashion and offer equivalents for today. It is a fabulous blog and this will make a perfect coffee table book!

Overall I was really happy with all of these finds and I know they will be put to great use. Some of them would even make fabulous gifts! Have you found anything fabulous at Marshall’s, T.J. Maxx, or Homegoods recently?

TxSC: The Poshmark Sponsor Party + Sparkly Dress

19 Mar

Saturday night at the Texas Style Council Conference is always one of the highlights. They hosted a fabulous party full of pop-up shops and great giveaways by several of the conference sponsors. I just wanted to take this opportunity to say what an absolutely wonderful time I had, and also to highlight a few of the great companies I learned about at the party that I was particularly drawn to!

Laura, Cassie, and I at the Sponsor Party. I wore a silver dress from Luxe Apothetique and a gold Cynthia Rowley tote to carry around all my awesome goodies :)

Upon walking in to the party, we bloggers were each treated to a pair of Dr.Scholl’s Fast Flats, a really comfy pair of ballet-flat like slippers to give our feet some relief from our sky-high heels. They were super comfy and made walking back to the car much more bearable! We were also gifted a beautiful Stella and Dot bracelet from Whitney Fields. I have purchased from her before and she is a great Stylist to work with! She is adorable and sweet, and I strongly recommend going through her if you plan to purchase anything from Stella and Dot.

INPINK also graciously provided me with giftcards totaling $100 to spend on any of the amazing jewelry on their website. I haven’t quite finished spending it yet, but when I do I will be sure to let you know what I picked out! Another jewelry designer I was enamored by was Manic Trout. I love how she mixes vintage and modern to create really unique pieces. I absolutely adore this necklace made out of Amazonite and a metal seahorse ($85). And of course also this bracelet featuring a stegosaurus, $50 (although it’s a toss up whether I would prefer that one to the brontosaurus!)

Lastly, I really liked the mission behind Radiant Cosmetics. This makeup company was founded to help victims of human trafficking and support charities that combat the illegal sex industry. At a minimum, at least 20% of their profits are donated to these causes. They had some great lip glosses and my best friend loved their mascara, so make sure to check them out!

There were tons of other awesome sponsors at the party, including Lulu*s, ModCloth, Land’s End Canvas, Francesca’s Collections, and Electric Frenchie just to name a few. Unfortunately I just can’t individually highlight them all, but I want to thank each and every one of them for helping make the Texas Style Council Conference weekend a huge success! You can check out that website to see who else was there too :)
