Saturday, February 28, 2015's Spring 2015: Pink

Lisa and I had a first, great shop this spring on Thursday with the one-and-only Loren Munro at Bloomingdales.  Maybe because we're sick and tired of the snow, winter sweaters and winter boots, but one thing stood out to us:  pink.  Theory had some great blush/tan/pink items, Ted Baker had some lovely pink and floral pieces, and Vince had some yummy pink cashmere.  Even I, the queen of neutral, got in on the act.  A Vince sweater with a MaxMara scarf and a Ted Baker t-shirt - all in pink.  What is the world coming to?!

Lisa has been known to dabble in pink, so she had no trouble jumping into the pool.  Next time you are out, gravitate towards a springy pink.  See some of our favorites below. ~ JH

W2WW News Flash - Head to T.J.Maxx - New Designer Arrivals in store now

There may be 89” of snow on the ground here in Boston, but I’m thinking spring!  

With yet another blizzard on tap for the weekend, it was time for another day of snow forts, hot cocoa, movies and Legos.  So my hub and I loaded the kids in the car to Toys R Us for a Lego shopping spree.   Shopping for clothing YES!  For Legos, not so much.  Oh look!  It’s a T.J.Maxx next to Toys R Us.  Drop me off people.  

I bee-lined straight to the Runway Section.  If you’re not familiar, Runway is separate section in the store that has designer clothing at 1/3 of the original price.  Usually it’s one season behind or sometimes, current season.   

It was eerily quiet (as most sane people were already home and hunkered down).  Just me and racks and racks of New Designer Arrivals.  Hello Vince and Helmut!  My dear, dear friends, Rag and Bone, and Theory.  DVF, Missoni, Tory Burch, Moschino.  Clothing! Shoes! Purses!

 I spy with my little eye some Valentino and Chloe with a sale tag on it….

In the hopes that someday summer will come, I tried on this red La Blanca swim suit to cheer me up.  $30, originally $115.

If you’re in the Northeast, grab the shovel and dig yourself a path to TJMaxx.  There’s some deals to be had! ~ LB

My February obsession - these Chloe Sandals

Sometimes, there's an item of clothing or an accessory that I can't believe isn't on the market.  Or at least, I can't find it.  For a long time (ask Lisa), I've been searching for a nude colored, strappy sandal.  Would go with everything, right?  A classic pair of shoes.  SO hard to find.

And then this week, finally.  At Bloomingdales.  I gasped when I saw them and didn't hesitate to purchase them immediately.  I did try them on, but really, I didn't need to.  And, come to find, they are REALLY hard to find online.  I did find a photo of them to share with you.  Check them out:

The heel height is perfect at about 2 3/4".  The color (nudes can be so tricky against your skin tone) is perfect.  Ahhhh.  Now if the snow would just stop/go away/melt so I can wear them. ~ JH
