My Splurge vs. Steal look this season is from Sears.
I purchased these lovely slacks from the Kardashion Kollection, pictured below (marked down just $34.99)
I bought these lace up boots, also from the Kardashian Kollection (marked down just $29.99).
Compare to these variations, retailing for $425 or these at $375
The products I bought were a total steal, at between $30-35 a piece!
In these hard times, when we want to continue to look good, who has the money to spend on the high end looks, when you can look just as good by shopping at Sears! I’m very excited to show off my look, and I am very happy with the look and quality of these stylish products!

Here’s how it works:
Inventory and upload your wardrobe on your smart phone. Then, when you’re shopping either in-store or online and find that have-to-have jacket or accessory– simply scan it, try it on and mix and match it with your existing wardrobe. View up to five different looks side-by-side — to make sure it works. You can even be your own mannequin! Select your favorites; send them over to your personal stylists/friends for instant opinions and approval before you buy it. VIZL allows you to take a virtual shopping trip with your wardrobe and trusted friends with you anytime.
The best part is, no more expensive bad decisions hanging in your closet from faux pas shopping.
Try it. Share it. Buy it. VIZL works like your personal stylist allowing you to access the latest fashions from your favorite retailers and brands– even track coupons or sales! VIZL uses augmented reality rather than clumsy webcam-based technology and of course, capabilities including social and mobile commerce functionality. Shopping just got a lot more fun with VIZL app.
The free app can be downloaded at iTunes and is available on your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch (coming soon on Android)

Do you agree?
I agree with quality shoes. I still wear shoes that I’ve owned for a decade, and they are the shoes I paid more money for. I think that if you want quality shoes, more often than not, you have to pay more. I’m not sure about the other items on that list.
I also agree with designer pocketbooks; I still use my designer purses that are over a decade old. Of course, the compliments are no question. Costly items tend to be more sturdy; but who has the money to shop just designer?
Are there things you would spend more money on?
Are you a brand enthusiast? I must say I am. When it comes to fashion, brands are at the top. They dictate designs, cuts, colors; whether you can afford them or not (don’t worry I’m in the “not” group) I think you would have to agree. That’s not to say that there aren’t unknown designers out there who have original designs that may one day “take off”; after all, it had to be the same for some of these now ‘big honchos’. We all have to start somewhere.
Michael Kors is a refreshing designer. He’s not too complex, which is what I like about him; that’s not to say that he’s not talented and original. I like designers who make clothes that can be worn, without being too couture. If I could afford high end fashion Michael Kors would be close to the top of my list.
Cole Haan is another very down to earth designer, I love easy to wear, sensible fashion. I never was able to get away with wearing anything too flashy or risque. So, I enjoy the seemingly simple style (I say seemingly simple because I hesitate to call any designer simple) of Cole Haan.
Now, I’m a shoe and bag enthusiast. I love shoes and I love, love bags. I have plenty of both. Stuart Weitzman is a shoe and bag genius. If you have a high end budget and you’re looking for beautiful, elegant shoes– look no further. Stuart Weitzman designs delicate, sophisticated shoes for any occasion.
All of the above designers are available at bluefly.com if you’re a designer lover like I am, even if you have no budget, you can browse through the site when you have some time. You’ll certainly enjoy the “show”.
It has been busy around here. I hope you are all well. Which brings me to: I need a vacation. Has anyone been anywhere nice, or are you planning a nice little (or big) family vacation anytime soon? (I am envious of those of you who are, or who have been.) We have no vacation plans, but I am really hoping that we go somewhere.
Our news from the home front. My little munchkin still isn’t walking (not really, as I am not counting the 15 or so steps she takes at one time). She loves her Stride Rite shoes and does everything from bounce to tippy toe in them, to reach something that is out of her reach (everything except for walk/run). My guess is, she’s a very cautious baby. She really is. She is very careful with her food and just about everything she does on her own. So, I think walking is one of those things that she will take one step at a time (literally). Seriously though, she.is.so.cute. She puts a smile on my face everyday.
We are now using Earth’s Best diapers, and I am relatively happy with them. I am still wishing the original Cruisers make a come back. Pampers people if you are reading this, please bring them back!!!
I promise to try to get creative over the weekend and come back and post something more interesting next week. I have a couple of reviews coming up– coffee, make up, skin care… and I think that’s it.
Don’t forget The Little Looster Giveaway – a Booster for the Loo, a great product for those of you who are potty training your little ones, is still open (last day to enter is Monday, July 12 at midnight).
We bought our little munchkin a pair of Stride Rite shoes, she seemed to like them at the store, let’s see what she does with them in the coming days. She takes up to maybe 10 steps before plopping down on the ground, and takes many more steps if you hold her hand. She also uses a push cart, or a pink toy car that she has to “walk” all over the room. So, I suspect that she’s almost there.
My little munchkin is taking baby steps! She takes 4-5 steps at a time and then sits (plops is actually more appropriate) back down on her bum. This probably means she is going to be walking in a short time. That is so exciting! She is 13 months old today.
Which brings me to, what are good first walking shoes for toddlers? If you have any advice, including any shoes to stay away from, please share.
She now wears these Smaller shoes by See Kai Run; which were a Birthday gift. She loves them, and they seem to be working fine until now, she’s been mostly just standing; but I don’t think they will be any good for walking.
We have been thinking about buying her Stride Rite shoes…. — It’s going to be a whole new world in our household.
