I really want these Chloe platform sandals! I just found them on theoutnet.com and have been staring at them all day wanting to pull the trigger on the "Add to Bag" button. They are marked down 50% from $455 to $228, such a great deal for Chloe! I love everything about the shoe especially the double interlocking ankle straps with buckle fastening. I love when straps hit my ankles. I want them!

Due to American Idol continuously running over during the season I set my DVR to record the show 5 minutes longer than it was scheduled to end. I learned that tough lesson after I missed Adam Lambert's performance of which Simon Cowell actually gave him a standing ovation. By the way, why is it such a big deal right now that Adam is gay?! Anyway, after the American Idol finale FOX aired a new pilot called Glee. I was not interested as I already record way too many television shows, however this one caught my attention from the very beginning. In the first 45 seconds they showed a car being driven with Ohio plates (my home town!), and a boy trying to avoid being thrown into the dumpster by the high school football team by shouting he is wearing Marc Jacobs' new collection. I died and wanted more, but five minutes was up and so was the show! I'm just now writing this post because I finally watched the entire episode of Glee on Hulu.com and I must say I was so moved. I love the concept of the show; The football jocks, the cheerleader clicks, the nerds who get stuffed in porta potties, and of course the caring teachers. One teacher in particular who runs the Glee club and hopes to recruit some singing and dancing talent. If you haven't watched the pilot for this hour-long comedy please check it out, I think you will be as delighted as I am. I'm looking forward to adding another show to my repertoire this fall television season. I guarantee this will be a hit with pop culture.

My girlfriend and I ventured over to a wonderful boutique to do some window shopping, and my eyes were like saucers. I wanted everything I saw! They have the most awesome BCBG collection apart from a BCBG store I've ever seen. There were a lot of dresses there that I fell in love with (by BCBG and others), but this one is the one that actually made me take off my clothes to try it on. The BCBG pleated cotton poplin dress with pockets in violet purple. The dress was a little big on me and they did not have the next size down, which is probably a good thing. I did manage to find it online, however I'm most sad to say that cannot spend $158 on a dress right now no matter how fabulous.

How cute is this 10x9.5 Marc Jacobs Palais Royal messenger bag! It's on sale at Saks.com at 40% off for under $400. It seems to only come in ivory at this price which is a fine color, and for a Marc Jacobs this size is a fine price. The strap looks to be nonadjustable so I would wear the bag across my body instead of on my shoulder. Anyway, I'm daydreaming.

Stylish Me just forwarded me the best website! Let me backtrack. I've been eyeballing a certain dress in Express for a couple of weeks now, however I'm trying to be responsible and not spend money on clothes especially full-price items. Stylish Me being the resourceful fashionista she is told me about www.retailmenot.com where legitimate printable coupons and coupon codes are available. Where have I been?! This website actually works for many many different stores, including designer brands. This website also tells you the unreliable coupons codes that did not work for a lot of customers. Retailmenot.com is now added to my favorites... No shopping without it!
