designer dress up

April 16, 2014

The other week I had the fun opportunity to visit the Shop Hers showroom in Santa Monica and play dress up. Shop Hers is the only luxury marketplace dedicated exclusively to pre-owned designer fashion.  While I love designer brands I only have a small handful of pieces that I own. I usually can never justify spending the money even though I can appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship of the pieces. I do however love hunting down a good deal. One of my favorite dresses is this 3.1 Phillip Lim dress that I wore to our wedding reception. It’s absolutely stunning and a piece that I’d never sell. The best part about it was the cost-$35 from a consignment shop in San Francisco. One of my favorites parts about Shop Hers is that you can create a style profile with all your sizing information, and the site matches you with other “Style Soulmates” who share the same size to make it easy to find clothes you like that fit. It totally beats looking through racks and racks of clothes to not find your size or the styles you like. When I went to Shop Hers there were so many pretty pieces it was hard to not gush over everything. Remember these Miu Miu booties? Yep, I almost died!  It was so fun to style this pretty outfit for a fun afternoon in LA!

Shop Hers is offering $50 off site-wide for 24 hours after you register! There are so many pretty bags and shoes which makes that offer so tempting! What would you pick?

Shopbop and East Dane's Friends and Family Sale

April 15, 2014

Woo hoo! Shopbop and East Dane are having their Friends & Family Sale! I've always been a fan of Shopbop and it's so cool that they now have their men's site East Dane. Last night Matthew and I stayed up late waiting for the Blood Moon and put together a list of our favorite items for the girls and guys in your life {or maybe just you hehe!}. Since everything is 25% off it's a good excuse to do some spring shopping, am I right? Make sure to use code: INTHEFAMILY14 at checkout. It applies to full-priced and sale items! I'm excited to finally get a pair of espadrilles {deciding between peach, lace or striped!}, and I'm so tempted to get my favorite Karen Walker sunglasses in black. I wear them enough in tortoise that it might be justified!

Matthew has been on the lookout for some cool printed tees for spring, as well as a new pair of sunglasses. Just like me, he has a little bit of an addiction! Also shoes.. he does like his sneakers!

Make sure to use code: INTHEFAMILY14 for 25% off sitewide on both Shopbop and East Dane. Love that you can use it on both full-priced and sale items! 

Happy shopping!

Eclectic prints are a must-have for me in spring. {I love them for dressespantsoutweareven in home decor!}. My favorite thing about these pants, besides the fun print, is that they're so comfortable and easy to wear. Since I didn't want the look to seem too pajama-y {yes, that's the kind of comfort we're talking about}, I paired it with this embroidered blouse. While I didn't go to Coachella, this is just the outfit I would wear in the desert!
