Want it Wednesday

Want it Wednesday – Blazer Story

Want it Wednesday

If you’re an adult female, in years if not in attitude, you should have a suit or two for business and a casual blazer or two JUST for pleasure. The blazer is so versatile and classic that it can be paired with virtually everything you own, short of your bras and underwear. Actually, we take that back, that would probably look amazing. A casual blazer with jeans and sneakers and a graphic tee is perfection. A casual blazer with a summer sundress? Sure. With shorts and wedge sandals for a BBQ? Why not? Get yourself a solid black or navy blazer and one printed blazer and you’re set for serious style. In this case, we’re seriously covering Alexander McQueen’s Patchwork blazer, but let’s be honest, its not in the credit cards. Check out some of our (more affordable) faves!

Tuesday Shoesday – The Love Boat

You don’t have to own a boat to look like you just stepped off one, that’s what makes the boat shoe one of our favorite summer styles! We call it a style trifecta because it’s comfy and casual but it still makes a statement. The best part…you won’t need a life vest at the cash register for many of these styles, so picking up a pair for the season is a no-brainer. Check out some of our great finds!

View from the Sidelines: BattleShop Trends

Who says we all can’t be stylists, fashion editors, or just basically fabulous?   BattleShop is both a game and a way to show the world your personal style through your fantasy wardrobe.

We’re going to reveal more and more details about BattleShop in upcoming weeks, but for now, we can tell you this:  when you play our game, you’ll not only have the chance to win great prizes (can you say “gift cards to shop with”?), but you’ll also show off your serious shopping skills.  When we ask you to set your inner fashionista free, we mean it!

We just wrapped up our second round of Beta Testing, and we have to say, we’re pretty impressed with what our BattleShoppers have added to their Closets.  When we launch, you’ll find a Trending Items page on our site that will highlight the items most popular in BattleShop Closets right now.
