...you need tummy control without VPL.

Hello!  Why yes, it's us!  No, we didn't fall off the face of the earth.  We've been in fashion limbo, that dark time between seasons.  We are gearing up for fall and will be writing more frequently soon!

Summer always brings some undergarment dilemmas.  Strapless bras, backless bras, with many missteps along the way.  But, have I got an item for you!  A good friend turned me onto a couple of Gap Body products and while I was searching the Gap Body site, I found this, which has been an amazing piece to own!  Behold, the tummy control, 'sculpting' thong

Buried under 'Slips & Shapewear' on gap.com, these tricksters have full coverage in the front and a thong back, to eliminate panty lines yet keep your tummy smooth and 'sucked in'.  While the model certainly doesn't need them, I do.  And I have to say, my shorts and pants look better with that added layer of support.  Reviews on gap.com were mixed, but I give them 2 thumbs up.  If this is something you think would work well for you, I encourage you to give them a try.  At $19.99, it might be worth it! A 'brief' note - they are currently only available in a size L, so check back often for a restock! ~ JH

It's the most wonderful time of the year...Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

We take a break from summering to remind our dear readers that it's time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  This IS the time to jumpstart your fall clothes shopping.   
Right now, it's PREVIEW; if you have a Nordstrom card, you can start shopping NOW.  Sale opens to public on July 19th.

Since Lisa and I have Nordstrom's cards, we have started shopping!  Lisa has an upcoming appointment with Amy Swartz (personal shopper extraordinaire at Nordstrom in Natick) and Amy has already pre-ordered several items for me.

Things we are liking this year?!  This Caslon tunic is cute in the black; a different and easy mommy-top.  Price can't be beat at $39.90.
This DVF wrap dress is a great addition to any wardrobe - it's about $125 off the regular price!
I love, love, love this Joie mixed-media sweater.  I'm going to give it a try since it's only $159.90.
I have a friend who is a little obsessed with blue suede shoes (ahem, Lisa, ahem), and another friend who is also on the hunt (you know who you are!).  Why not play with these for $89.90?

Loving the jacket and t-shirt - they are also part of my order!  

These Harrow rag & bone booties made my heart stop!  I was going to look for them this fall, and here they are!  On sale!  With brown leather piping. Ahhh...come home to me.

Hope you get started on your fall shopping too!  More to come as we start getting excited about fall.  Until then, back to flip flops.  And if you want a flip flop refresher, click here! ~ JH
