By the end of May we always feel bombarded by this diet-weight loss-beach murmur. And it might make us feel a little bit nervous, annoyed or even hesitant, in the sense that we should have probably lost the extra weight though the winter. No! Don’t even dare to fall into this I-have-to-be-skinny, rough, even hysterical, I’d say, state of mind. Long gone are the days that every woman should look identical, that every woman’s body had to lose its femininity and that everyone should fit a size up to 2-6. Don’t look at the “bible” on your coffee table! Look at the women on the street, ask your boyfriend, ask your dad or whoever you trust! Women have to be feminine, curvy and that’s all that makes you sexy as hell! Not to mention, that it makes you self-respective and not self-punishing. And for that women, that love their bodies, their curves, and their femininity after all, Torrid offers the hottest styles with the hottest deals!

Summer is almost here, and fabrics have to be softer & lighter, styles change from strict to playful and our mood is so lifted that we can’t wait to hit the beach! And to save you some time and money, I’ve picked up for you 3 adorable styles that will make you welcome summer in vogue!

The first one, which I would call work-morning meeting style, starts with the season’s hottest trend; a leopard print peplum top that can be worn day and night and its fit is absolutely flattering. You can match this one with the Torrid cropped skinny jean in black, a piece that will get you through many spring/summer occasions and because of its length it can be combined with any kind of footwear (sandals, heels, flats, pumps). For a morning casual outfit, I would add the crochet lace slip-on flat which is so comfortable but at the same time so hot, you’ll definitely stand out in the office! And how about getting this complete, super fashionable outfit while saving big with the 10% off Torrid promo code? Cool huh?

Then, for an evening cosmo with the girls, I’d definitely go for the floral chiffon hi-lo dress. And let me justify myself here. First, I think that hi-lo designs are the hottest style you could get. Second, tank tops with a high-waist skirt design flatter your curves as much as possible. Third, hi-lo designs can be worn with flats or heels without making your legs looks short. In other words, just go for it; you’ll love it! Now, if you want to flatter your waist even more, then you should add a belt. For shoes, since we are talking about a cocktail and not a tea, I’d propose the 4-buckle gladiator wedge sandal. Finally, to complete this hot outfit you should add accessories. What about the mixed metal multi-chain layered necklace and the pave gemstone wing earrings? Gorgeous! And the Couponology exclusive BOGO 50% off Torrid promo code? Even better!

torrid 3No self-conscious woman goes to checkout in late May without a new bikini. None! And this year, we’ve seen all around that vintage swimwear is a must. Especially when you have curves to die for. Speaking of which, you should try the peek-a-boo striped swim top + bottom which is super-hot and also, because of the combination of vertical and horizontal lines it adds or fades the parts you want to show off or not! Together with it, you should get the striped button front swim skirt. You know, for the time you need to get off your sunbed and head to the bar for another mojito! OMG! I can’t wait for that drunk-on-the-beach moment to come!

And since I’d like to dream of the beach for a little bit now, I’ll stop here. But one last advice before I go. Hurry up! Because deals and styles like these go fast! Here you go: click here!

 

It’s not you. It’s all of us. After a holiday, a short vacation or just a crazy night out we feel sad it’s over. And you have every right to feel that way–who doesn’t like a couple of days off anyway- but there is a quick and easy way to get over it and cheer up! Just do some online shopping and your post-holiday sadness will be absolutely gone! I swear to my brand new sandals! A new tee, a pair of shoes, a huge hair bow, or even a new mug for your morning coffee, can absolutely make your week (or your day, for the shopaholics among us). If you think my idea will uplift you but give your wallet the blues then you are wrong. You can brighten up while saving big time, but only if you choose the right store, in other words Hot Topic. The place to be when you want to update your wardrobe, your flat or even your fragrance, while saving with unbeatable discounts plus our Couponology exclusive $10 off Hot Topic promo code. That easy!

swimYou might be surprised but I decided to start with accessories rather than clothes. To make matters a bit stranger, I also decided to start from summer essentials–a new pair of sunglasses, a hat, or maybe a swimsuit. But before I start, let me share my speculation. May is just around the corner, and that means that summer is almost here. No, it’s not that we don’t have much time left, it’s just that even preparing for summer can make you as happy as looking at your calendar and realizing it’s the 1st of June. My favorite for the season is matching Misfits gear. So, for her, I chose the Misfits Fiend Skull Flounce Swim Top for less than $20, resonating the latest flounce (or fringe) bikini top trend. For him, I chose the Misfits Swim Trunks, lightweight and simple to make enjoying your favorite watersport that much easier! sunglasses

When you prepare your daylight outfits, there is one thing you can’t leave aside, your sunnies. And as it happens with most women (and men in some cases) we have different ones for the beach, the pool, the party, the working days, the car, vacations and so on. For that very reason, you can’t spend a fortune on every single pair. You can do it on one or two (perhaps the pair you bring on a cruise vacation), but not on all of them. And in comes Hot Topic, to rescue you from the embarrassment of having one hundred selfies with the same sunnies! With less than $13 you can get two pairs that are super fun and in vogue (I would never want you posing with last season’s styles)! For example, you can get the Mint Clear Front Retro Sunglasses for her, in an all-time classic design and the hottest summer color: mint. For those looking to adopt a trend-setter attitude (and pose of course), opt for the Pink Glitter Round Sunglasses, the season’s round and bright must-have! For the guys, I picked up 2 simple, classic styles. First up are the Black Soft Touch Aviator Sunglasses and the second, much more modern option, the Two Tone Faux Wood Retro Sunglasses. You can get both of them for less $16. Unbelievable, huh?

After browsing Hot Topic’s summer accessories and Couponology deals, don’t tell me you aren’t ready to jump in your car and drive to the nearest beach. Just don’t forget the sunnies!

After enduring a tough winter, snowstorms and, worst of all, all those huge coats and winter accessories that don’t really allow for much style and hairdos to be shown to the public eye, March is here to remind us that spring is on its way. The temperature is still low but the sun is making its first appearances and every woman knows the new season calls for a closet makeover.

As with every new beginning, we have to start with the basics. Would you plan a trip without having your passport renewed? Never! So how could you plan your new spring styles without some classic basics? When I say classic, I wouldn’t dare think of boring, old-fashioned, ancient items. I’m thinking of a piece of clothing that goes well with (almost) anything, and can be modified to be as classic or as trendy as you choose. In other words, I’m thinking Christopher & Banks. Because for me, when a store can dress me (aged 27; top secret) and mom (53), that equals to shopping success.

Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication (Leonardo Da Vinci)  

When I think of classic pieces that every woman needs in her collection, I aim for simplicity. Yes, I also have that extravagant shirt with gold details that would blind someone in direct sunlight, but that’s a statement piece. When I look for my next closet staple, I focus on color and follow the season’s palettes of the world’s top designers. For this season, the color palettes have managed to accommodate something magical. The prettiest pastels together with bright floral colors–think greens, blues, and oranges.

I compiled a couple of looks that focus on simplicity, the latest color trends, style, comfort, and (as always), savings! This weekend Christopher & Banks is having their incredible Friends & Family event that will save you an extra 40% on everything!  The first outfit revolves around a beautiful skirt that mixes the floral trend with the all-time-classic purple (Purple Ribbon Challis skirt). The A-line shape and decorative details allow enough room to experiment with the top–opt for a tank and cardigan combo (I love the Satin Trim Tank in white with The Perfect Cardigan ¾ Sleeve in Dahlia Orchid), or a plain top like the best-selling ¾ Satin Trim Tee in Byzantine Purples, in complementary shades.

christopher & banks 2The second outfit I’ve picked out is much more classic but very convenient for all those days when you want to look put-together but not overdressed. I based this one on a shirt I love that has gotten me through many situations–from the most formal to the most casual–the Petite Gingham Essential Shank Button Shirt with metallic buttons. A shirt that can be worn buttoned, unbuttoned with a nice tank, or underneath a sweater. Versatility wins major points from me, so this shirt is a gem. You can combine it with the Signature Comfort Denim Capri in dark stonewash and a nice pair of flats or sandals, or with the super flattering Signature Slimming Colored Jean in classic fit that can be worn with hot pumps for a beautiful dinner date outfit.

If your little black dress has turned grey from its countless washes, don’t worry! Christopher & Banks carries these staple pieces for as little as $26.97! To dress up your LBD, try on a pop of color with a pair of bright earrings or a statement necklace. Browse their selection to put together your own classic outfit, and don’t miss the Christopher & Banks Friends & Family event to get spring-ready on a budget!

Trend Spotting at PacSun

On December 10, 2013, in Deal of the Week, Featured Merchants, by nbourma

Today, I switched on my computer with one single wish! To talk about fashion. Haha! You got me, I do that every single day. But! Last night, when I was dressing up for a girls’ night out, I was quite surprised with myself when I decided to put on my cheetah print booties, AGAIN. And when I got to the gym this morning, I put on my leopard Burton jacket. And from those two moments, there is something spinning around my head. What is that? I’ll tell you what… Usually, when I see trend being circulated too much around I’m getting so sick that I can’t even stand looking at it. You know, I get this eye-hurting feeling of boredom and lack of originality. So not-acceptable by an Aquarius- for those of you who know a bit about birth dates. :) And to my surprise, this is happening to me this season (and maybe the previous one too). I’m getting this fashion-routine attitude that makes me choose styles that look so much alike and to be honest, I’m just lovin’ it! And after a lot of brainstorming and put-the-blame-on-others situations, I got it. It’s not just that prints whether animal or camo is an ongoing trend, it’s mostly that PacSun deals are also timeless that I can get as many similar outfits as I wish. So, yes, I put the blame on the unbelievable PacSun coupons available on our site. You see? I’m not actually boring, I never wear the same items but they just look similar!

pacsun leoSpeaking of similarity let me show you my next targets, all based on similar patterns. And I promise, after that I’ll stop shopping for this kind of prints. You know I love to shopping-lie sometimes, don’t you? So, starting from top to toe, the number one on the list is the LA Hearts Animal Mesh Cropped Top, which I would wear as shown in the pic or with my black joggers or maybe my brown harem pants. Tip: don’t you try this top with leggings unless you are on the catwalk. Next on the list is the LA Hearts Leopard Printed Leggings, which come with the perfect fit and can be worn with flats, sneakers or high heels, depending on your mood- or your height, kidding! Then, the second variation of the trend, the camo print should definitely be welcomed to your dressing room. For me, the best you could choose is the LA Hearts Camo Printed Leggings and as for matching it: see the previous one! Finally, if you are sick of your little black dresses, you can wear them with the With Love From CA Leopard Tights and a pair of flats and you’ll have a whole new morning look. And the best of it? Now, you can get all of the above and save big with the 30% off PacSun coupon code. See? Shopping doesn’t always mean spending!

Now, as I said before, when we talk about shopping we need to have a complete plan- otherwise we are wasted. Don’t you ever go to the checkout without a new pair of shoes. And in our animal-instincts-awakening case, it couldn’t be other than the Qupid Ritzy Leopard Mesh Flats which come in two colors, black and pale pink (for which I’ll definitely dedicate a whole article next time). This pair is so cute but also so hot because you already know how hot transparent textiles are- even if it is on shoes and feet (another story). LOL Also, it’s quite cool to wear them at a night out so as to make a difference of all these sky-high heels around- my Aquarius nature is awake again! Also, for those of you who are more Jessica than Victoria, then you can go for the Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Flashee Hi Top Sneakers which can be called anything but sporty (you know, in that messy, non-pompous-just-comfy sense). Hey wait! I’m not done yet! How many times do I have to say that an outfit is nothing without a nice accessory? And in our days, we know that the most easily-shown accessory is our iPhone’s case- it’s ringing 24/7 anyway, so there is no way you won’t show it off. And here comes the cats again and the lovable PacSun iPhone 5 Case with Ear Buds. I fell for sure! Especially now that I can get it for less than $12.

pacsun menOmigod! Are you a man reading this? If you are planning on making your girl happy then it’s fine! Otherwise, I’m so sorry! You see, I’m overwhelmed with excitement and I forgot that I and my fellow fashion addicts are not the only people on earth. So let me pay back and share some shopping ideas with you too. I know you are not that much into following trends –although you should do sometimes, no offense! So in your case I’d just go for the items I’d love to see worn by my boyfriend. And you’d better trust me because I’m paying too much attention on clothing so you bet I got it right. You need a new pair of pants, I know, but not a usual, boring one! You need a BANG (!) one like the –God I love its fit- Levi’s 511 Corduroy Surf Blue Pants. Yes you do and you’ll get all eyes on you! Even the ones that force you to light a flare to turn! :)  And also, you need a new top. What about following a trend yourself and getting the Ezekiel Now You See Me Cardigan in black camo? Yes, you’ll look handsome my dear and you’ll also save 30%, so let her drink champagne tonight. :) Wasn’t that too easy my dear boy? You know it was! Oh! And before checkout, get something for her too! You got some tips from above so don’t screw it up. No! Photoluminescent clothing is not in vogue!

In Love With Fashion-You Bet!

On September 18, 2013, in Deal of the Week, Featured Merchants, by nbourma

Let’s play a game. When I “say” a word you “say” the first thing that comes to your mind. But because of the current circumstances, I’ll play both roles- you can try that at home too, it’s safe. But you have to be as quick as possible- we don’t want extrinsic factors to affect your answer. Ready? Let’s go!

New- Season. Do- Shopping. Women- Hot. Style- Originality. Fall- New Wardrobe. Clothes- Obsession. Accessories- Prerequisite. Fashion- Art. Online- Checkout. Save- Big. In Love- With Fashion.

Yes, it might sound very James Bond-like but if you play that game too, you’ll probably come up with the same outcome: In Love with Fashion; a way of life that turned into the hottest online store for women that respect their image, style and wallet of course! And since we are already approaching the new season- Fashion Week reports all over the world are buzzing the media and our favorite fashion magazines- all a woman needs is to get the hottest AW 2013 trends. Easy enough. We get online and get them all while saving big with the Couponology exclusive 25% off InLoveWithFashion promo code. And now, let the special shopping mission begin! A mission we (women) are way too good to get it accomplished!

jumpsuitsFirst off, the jumpsuit is here to stay. It came into the fashion spotlight a couple of seasons ago but it’s still on the top items for the new season to come. How I see that? Amazing! A jumpsuit can make your life so much easier because it’s a one-piece outfit that doesn’t allow for styling mistakes and it will definitely save you from the fashion police penalty. You get it, add some accessories and a pair of shoes and you are all set! My favorites? Sleeveless for sure, and strapless even better. A jumpsuit covers too much to allow for long sleeves or high necks and still make you look feminine. To the point! You can get the Love Forest Green Jersey Cross Over Bust Jumpsuit or the Blue Love Cobalt Strapless Jumpsuit which can be worn day or night, depending on the shoes and bag you add. Both of them come in other colors too, so you should go for the ones that flatter you the most, I chose green and blue for that reason.

Another trend that first appeared last year, but won’t leave the catwalk until next spring (at least) is the cropped tops one. I loved this trend and honored it a lot this summer (we work out all year long for God’s sake) and I’m surely gonna do the same this fall too. Apart for the whole show-off issue that we might have, high waisted trousers and dresses are also absolutely in fashion and we already know that you can’t wear a long top with a high waisted bottom. Also, keep in mind that cropped tees are sort of a trick, because they always make your beautiful legs look longer. So, why don’t you try too to get the super cute Love Blush Fluffy V-neck Cropped Tee or the Love Cobalt Fluffy Cropped Knit? Caution! They do the same job as usual knits, but (!) they save space and it’s easier to get the matched than any other length of knit. Be it with shorts, playsuit, dress, jeans –high or low waisted- with a cropped tee you’ll get the perfect fall outfit!

ilwfLastly, as far as footwear is concerned, suede and platforms is the next big thing! No matter what’s the height, the design or anything, just choose a neutral or dark color and you’ll definitely walk the walk in style! Starting with my top pick, I’d propose the ILWF Nude Suede Platform Shoe which can be worn with everything! Also, because of its design it promises maximum comfort and foot support- no way to get tired in that shoe. Or if you want something more wintery, you can try the ILWF Black Suede Cross Strap Wedge with a 13cm heel. But careful! You don’t have much time to think about it, you either trust what you are reading or you lose it- they are so good, they disappear in a blink of an eye!

Let’s go back to our game now… Style- Forever. Trends- Got them. Wallet- Full. Mission- Complete. Adios!
