Buy This, Not That: Looks for Spring!

It’s been a while since I have put together a “Buy This, Not That” post.  I am featuring Boden today because I was so inspired by their Spring catalog!  This company, founded in the UK, is my new favorite source for versatile clothes with great quality and good value.  Boden’s Spring look reminds me of Kate Spade meets J.Crew, for less….

Check it out!  There is so many more fabulous spring items at Boden right now.  Happy bargain hunting and come on Spring!

P.S.  As I write this, a foot of snow sits on the ground and we have two more snow storms on the horizon this week.  Before last month, we didn’t even own a snow shovel!  Sooooo, as an understatement, I am desperate for Spring!

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!
