I am Looking for Blouses On Sale

I realized when I was packing for our recent trip to Florida (did you see these great Resort pieces?)  that I don’t have any blouses I really love and want to wear.  I thought I would take a peak at the sales and see what I can find that might fit my budget and my style.  I tend to gravitate to neutrals that are season-less so I can wear them all year long and most of what I selected below are basics. and they are all under $150.  I also couldn’t help my self and found a few other things on sale.. these  Waterproof Snowboots, these Cropped Jeans, this Bandeau Bikini (Great Deal!) and these Suede Lace Up Sandals.  Now I am way over budget ..even with everything on sale. Seems to be the story of my life!

Blouses are one thing Ridgely Brode is looking for on her blog, Ridgely's Radar, and what is better than finding them on sale?

I Love Finding a New Designer That is so Me

I was looking for a black blouse and happened upon Co – a line of luxurious essentials with “a sense of grown-up sophistication.”  I had never heard of them and the line is just how I want to dress, beautiful fabrics with classic lines and unique details.  I first saw the Marigold Belted ruffled midi dress and then searched further on Net-a-Porter for more of the line.  Be sure to click through because they look so much better on the models then in the flat collage below.  I especially like the keyhole detail on the ruffled sleeveless blouse and the double sided ruffle on this crepe pleated top. This is one collection I will be watching each season.  I found my black blouse, times two!

Classic and Elegant Pieces for Every Wardrobe

One of my on-line shopping secrets is Reiss, the brand has classic, elegant pieces that work well together and with other things in your wardrobe.  I tend to gravitate to solid colors, as you can see from the below images I chose, but there are some really pretty, feminine prints that caught my eye among their blouses and dresses. I think these shoes are very pretty, this batwing sweater would be great at night with jeans, and this whole look would be gorgeous with this coat.

Romancing My Closet

I have a section of my closet that is dedicated to trips out west.  I must have been a cow girl in a former life because I like to tip my toe in a romantic, western style every now and again.  I really do enjoy flipping through the Sundance Catalog to find feminine blouses to intersperse with my classic, city clothes. What I hadn’t realized is that they have expanded their jewelry collection to include handcrafted artisan pieces, gemstones and fine metals.  There is a huge range from delicate to bold that caught my eye in prices that fit a wide range.  I also tagged a few other things I didn’t include below, namely this  Oxy Belt, this Jasper Springs Dress, and this Golden Tassel Necklace.. Happy Shopping!
