Buy This, Not That — Shoes!

I have had a few requests to expand spark!‘s recurring “Buy This, Not That” series to fashion.  So, welcome to the first edition!

Flats are so popular this Fall, so I have narrowed my BTNT shoe selections to loafers, moccasins, and ballet flats.  Also, I am showcasing my new fave bargain brand — Me Too. Enjoy!

Your Very Own Rachel Zoe — I Die!

Just a quick post to share with you my new (to me) fave blog….

Looking for a personal stylist, a la Rachel Zoe? (and who’s not?!)

Except with a whole lot less drama, clothes with smaller price tags and zero commission (versus the $6,000+/day that RZ charges!)? 

Look no further!  Introducing Jill from The Good Life for Less:

Jill is genius at putting together outfits for real life, busy people, who don’t want to spend a fortune, but want to build a functional and chic wardrobe.  I am loving her new “Back to Basics” series, complete with a video!

A few of my fave finds by Jill:

Shoes News

We interrupt your regularly scheduled blog for breaking shoes news!

I have been less than inspired in the past couple years with the fall and winter shoe collections.  As a result, I am still wearing some shoes from college (more than 10 years ago, if you are counting) because I haven’t found suitable replacements. 

So imagine my delight while perusing Piperlime when I found a fabulous assortment of shoes for the fall and winter that met my 3Cs of adult shoe-buying: Chic, Comfy and Cost-effective.  🙂
