Fabulous Finds Of The Week

I've been poking around trying to see what kind of fabulous finds are lurking around just waiting for me to purchase them:)  or at least add them to my wish list:(  Here are my Fabulous finds for this week.

 This first boot is really on my "purchse them" list.  It's a grey suede lace up OTK !! 


This next piece is a cropped jumpsuit by Michael Kors (love Michael:) It's so cute and looks very comfy.

These booties are just fabulous!  I must admit, I've just recently become a fan of this type of shoe and now I just love most of them, especially this one!


What do you think?

  So, I'm on my blog browsing through all of the fabulous comments that have been left for me, and lo and behold I read a comment from The Photodiarist that says she has awarded me the Divine Award (pause) uh, huh?  Whaa?? Me??? For real??  LOL!!  I really had to read the post twice because it just caught me off guard. First let me say that the Photodiarist has one of THEE BEST photography blogs that I've come across.

So if you haven't yet visited her blog, please do.  You will not be dissapointed, especially if you like/love photography. the award is about my guilty pleasures..5 of them.  Let's they are, in no particular order.
  1. Sleeping ( I love to sleep and I'm serious about it.)  Don't wake me, don't call me to the phone or door..matter of fact if the house aint burning down, just let me sleep..I'll let you know when I'm up:)
  2. Bubble Baths (same rules apply when I'm in the tub)

My Brazilian shoe size..a mini post

Hey fabulous folks! I just wanted to share with you a purchase that I made.  I bought this fabulous shoe online from Aldo.  Now, I own several pairs of Aldo boots/shoes and they are all a size 37 (US 7).  I get these in the mail the other day and I'm super excited, can't wait to wear them, try them on or should I say, squeeeeeezzzzeeeee my foot in to them,  they were to small!
 I call Aldo and was advised if the shoe says it's made in Brazil (which this was) they usually run small. Well it does not say where the shoe is made when purchasing online but no worries, I was able to return the shoe to my local mall and they are going to have my "Brazil" size shipped to me from San Francisco because none of the stores in Sacramento carry this shoe:( So keep in mind about this Brazilian sizing if you ever purchase a shoe from Aldo.

I must say though that Aldo's customer service was EXCELLENT!
(Just fabulous, isn't it:)

My trip to my once favorite flea market

Well, as promised I told you all I would let you know what I came across at the Berkeley Flea Market.  It had been a little while since I'd been and boy had things changed.  Needless to say, I couldn't fine one good vintage booth and was very dissapointed that all of the jewelry booths had pretty much the same jewelry.  Not a lot of variety. Here are some of the things worth mentioning that I purchased.

These were handmade by a very talented young lady named Kalia.  She approached me as I was walking around and asked if I liked accessories, but of course (LOL) So I followed her over to where her jewelry was and I was quite impressed.  If I go back to the flea market, it would  strictly be to see what this young lady has.

These were also handmade from seashells by a young man...didn't get his name but he also had some pretty cool jewelry.

This was purchased at a random booth at the market...Not a very good pic but I love the ring. It has a vintage feel to it.

Just me...a mini post

 I purchased these Michael Kors clogs last year and couldn't wait to put them on again this Fall. Today was the perfect day for them. They are one of my favorites because they are SO  very comfortable.

Leggings.....yes, they are back!

Leggings or as me and my girls use to call them, "stretch pants" have made a comeback.  I, for one am kind of glad to see them back.  They are super comfy and you can easily dress them up or down.  Now, I personally would not wear them with anything that doesn't cover the butt.  Although I try to accentuate my butt whenever I can because I think it's kinda cute..LOL!  Trying to accentuate it however with leggings/stretch pants or whatever you want to call them...ehhh, not so much. I pulled together a few   looks if you are wondering what to do with these leggings/stretch pants or whatever you want to call them.

 (I'm off to my favorite Berkeley Flea Market to do some Vintage shopping...I'll let you guys know what I find!!)

Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize!

It's no secret that I LOVE accesories!  I also love "Gaudy" rings, necklaces & earrings..I just do!  I am a firm believer that with a good statement piece you can dress up an otherwise plain outfit.  Below are some really cute pieces I've come across.

Below are a couple of my vintage pieces.

This owl is one of my favourite pieces!

Sweater Hunt!

Aptly named title because I have none!  Well, ok I have a few but every season it seems I look in my closet and wonder, "what in the world did I wear last year this time?"  So, I get up this morning, play hookie from church and find my way to the mall.  I come home with ONE sweater!!  It wasn't a complete waste, I did find a few pairs of leggings and some very cute accessories.  I come home and get on the internet and see all KINDS of cute they only carry cute sweaters online?  AARRGH!!

The very first sweater is the one I ended up coming home with.  The rest of the items are ones that I will eventually come home with.

Well, well, well, wellies!

Yes, we are just at the beginning of Fall, but before you know it the rain will be upon us and since no Fabulous Fashionista's closet is complete without a pair of fabulous rain boots, I thought I'd get you prepared.

My Vintage Finds

So, I've been poking around a few thrift stores in the area lately.  I've found some pretty awsesome finds.  One of which is this grey suede vintage coat.  This coat is an original vintage item made by Lantry Leathers.  I've seen Lantry coats online from $99 to upwards of $300.  I found mine for $20:)

This nice little leopard piece I found for $6!!

(Not too bad,huh?)

This next jacket is a nice little Wilsons leather jacket I picked up.  I'm not a fan of jean jackets, so this is my subsitute.

This next one, I must confess is not reaaalyyy a vintage find.  I bought this jacket about 4 or 5 years ago from Wilsons Leather.  It's a patchwork (Vintage Inspired) Rabbit jacket and it's still one of my favorites!

Last but not least is a faxu fur collar shawl I found for $10.  The broach was purchased seperately from Macy's.
So ladies, don't discount (pun intended)thrift stores, they harbor some fabulous finds!
