Hooray, it’s Friday! TGIF. I feel like I say that every week. I mean yes I do love the week days & getting things accomplished but it seems that whenever there is an exciting weekend in store the days just drag on and on. I am particularly excited for today/weekend because one of my best friends from college, her husband and their new baby are coming to Dallas for a little visit.
I am so excited to spend the weekend with them just catching up, hanging out around the house and playing with the new baby. We really don’t have any definite plans because I
know hear you have to be pretty flex with a little one but like I said, I could not be more excited. I often refer to this bestie as my soap opera friend. No, she does not have any drama and is not crazy at all, she is just that friend that although we chat regularly, I don’t get to see but a few times a year and every time we get together we pick up right where we left off. It is like not a day has gone by. She’s just the best. Do you have any friends like that? I hope you all have a fun, safe & enjoyable weekend with whatever plans you may have. Happy Weekend!
p.s. I am hosting an event at Trina Turk in Highland Park Village next Thursday the 13th from 5-8PM. If you live in Dallas I hope you get a chance to stop by for a glass of champagne, see the new spring trends and of course say hello to moi!
Best Weekend Sales
- Neiman Marcus: I know I mentioned this dress last week but you guys, the shape is so cute and it is only $88! Such a good buy. Love this yellow bow back dress and a couple of months ago I was SO close to buy this Rebecca Minkoff dress but honestly I thought it was a bit over priced. Now that it is on sale…well, game over because I am obsessed.
- Nordstrom: This Rachel Zoe tank is a great basic & can be worn year round. Love this cardigan, this flare dress & this red Hobo clutch could also double as a wallet!
- DVF: I love buying DVF dresses on sale. The silhouettes are classic and can be worn year after year. This strapless dress would be great for a cocktail party or a wedding. Really like this pink number for a casual afternoon & this tweed a-line dress would be perfect for a tea or luncheon!
- Shopbop: Lately they have had some amazing sales. Like ridiculous. They still are marking down some great pieces that you don’t want to miss out on. Love this romper and these Tory Burch sandals would be so cute for the summer! I am always a sucker for a great Equipment blouse & this sleeveless number is adorable.
If you hadn’t noticed already my personal style is classic, fairly conservative and very feminine so I wouldn’t say that printed jeans are normally my thing. They a bit out of my normal clothing comfort zone and I always associate pieces like this with my cool friends like Lynsey, Mary & Molly.
While shopping forever ago I came across these chevron jeans (on major sale & previously seen here) and I knew I wanted to find a way to incorporate them into my wardrobe but still make them very ‘me’. Since the printed jeans are so wild I decided to stick with my golden rule of if one of the pieces I am wearing is a bit bolder then to keep everything else pretty calm. By pairing a white silk blouse with the pants it really softens the look and doesn’t make it so bold because you guys trust me, if these jeans were paired with certain blouses or tops they would look even more wild than they already do!
To complete the look I threw on my favorite Zara red shoes and a matching statement earring for that extra lady like touch. Just remember that even though you maybe afraid to wear a piece (hello printed pants) because it is not normally your thing you can always put your own personal style stamp on it.
Shop the Look
As much as I do love getting out and shopping sometimes it is so nice to just sit on the couch in my sweats and shop on my phone. Lazy? Sometimes. Convenient? Yes. Thanks to one of my girlfriends who introduced me to House Account, shopping my favorite boutiques via my iPhone just got a whole lot easier & more fun.
Launched in January of 2013, House Account, combines the intimacy of a high-end boutique experience with the convenience of online shopping. Genius right? I think so. House Account is the easiest way to follow and shop the newest arrivals from your favorite local boutiques. I know you are probably thinking ‘Amy we have Instagram…why would we need to follow boutiques on House Account?’. Honestly, I thought the same thing until I downloaded the app (for free btw). House Account only picks the BEST boutiques in your city & you can see their newest inventory, get details on specific items and even contact them directly about the item you have your eyes on…all from the convenience of the app. The best part is that you are not limited to shop just your city, you can shop & learn about boutiques that you may not know about. Another bonus is that when you are traveling you can now know where you should be shopping, just open the app and you can see best boutiques that are nearby!
Say it with me now, AMAZING! If you haven’t already downloaded the app House Account, you can do so here or directly from your phone! Although House Account app is present everywhere (on your phone duh) it is made up of over 350 boutiques throughout 21 states. Since Dallas is my hometown I have listed below my favorite boutiques that use the House Account app, now you can shop at these boutiques too! Better get to downloading…Happy Shopping! xx
