Fashion Subscriptions…Yay or Nay?

 What’s Your Favorite Way To Shop?



Image result for images of food subscriptionsTo say that the internet has taken the world by storm is an understatement.  More and more people are turning to the internet to do their shopping for almost everything.  There are sites for people to do their food shopping (including daily meals), purchase their perfume, purchase their pet clothing and pet items, shoe sites, make-up and accessories sites, athletic wear sites and fashionable items.

Finding myself curious about the fashion sites, I did some research and was a little surprised that the fees were quite reasonable, but as I mentioned, they only applied to stylish or membership fees. Silly me.  Continuing my research, I actually went to the Nordstrom subscription page and signed up.  I found out that one is asked a series of questions in reference to style (by way of different styles of clothing match up together), then comes sizes of blouses, pants, and shoes, there is also a category of which styles one prefers, (Business Formal, Business Casual, and one other but I forget what it was).  Then I came a  series of items such as a purse, pants, and shoes and the question how much do you normally spend for each.  It was Nordstrom the lowest price was $50-$100, which I left blank, pressed continued, where I was introduced to my stylist.  Now I know that getting a subscription with Nordstrom is definitely not in my budget.  🙂

There are many others to choose from, and to help you along, should you choose to try your hand at subscribing.  I found this wonderful article entitled: “32 Best Women’s Clothing Subscription Boxes,” written by Anna and can be found at

This article is very informative, so give it a look-see and decide whether a fashion subscription is for you.  Until later…LP



Fashionable Shoes

Hello Again,

Fashion Friday is one again upon us and I think you are going to pretty happy with today’s postings. It’s all about the shoes!!!  I have to tell you I came upon this incredible find by accident.  You see I went onto, “The Zoe Report,” (my go-to place for fashion advice) and there was this article entitled, “The Only 5 Shoes You Need for Spring,” which I was going to bypass because I wanted a nice selection.  Lucky for me I did, there are  5 examples, of Low Heels, Slip On Sandals, Mules, Satin Styles, and Platforms! A great find, don’t you agree? Enough of the chitter chatter, let’s get to the shoes!

Now that you’ve seen the collection, which is your favorite? Mine are the kitten heels, I don’t have pretty feet, so any shoes with the toes out are not my favorites. Plus the fact that I am pretty tall, so I don’t like to go above, 2 1/2 inches as well.  

To find out more information on the above shoes, just click on the title link, (2nd link) and you’ll get the name of the shoe, descriptions, and price.  Happy Hunting, Lois

Fashionable Jeans

Today’s latest fashions are courtesy of The Zoe Report and Pinterest.  Accordingly, the below are The Best Street Style From New York Fashion Week.  In my opinion some of what is considered, “The Best,” are little too out there for me, but most of them I can actually see myself wearing.  You’ll notice that the colors do correspond with those of which I posted last week.  Ok, without further ado…

Let’s begin with the jeans–Dress Down Friday Look

I don’t about you, I have a problem with purchasing jeans that are distressed,  However, these jeans were done tastefully and I really love the frayed look at the bottom of the jeans. I absolutely adore the jacket and I feel the plain T-shirt fits perfectly.  Now the shoes, mmm, the color is nice but to me, they throw everything off.  A darker blue pair of shoes would be ideal.  Otherwise, everyone is going to be distracted by the shoes, and notice the outfit and how nicely it comes together. (Notice: The jacket is sporting dark denim).  What are your thoughts?    

The top is nice, the jeans ok–I have a problem with the rope on the pockets.  And those shoes, the right color but that bow. No way!   

Miroslava Duma street style

Is it just me?  But doesn’t it look like there was an additional roll up? The shoes are cute and I suppose the color was chosen to help bring out the pinstripes in the jacket.  I am just not too thrilled about ensemble at all.  You?  

NYFW Aziza azim street style

I Love Everything! The white crop top with collar goes perfectly with the jeans, it does overshadow the designs of the jeans. If anything the top makes the designs on the jeans stand out more.
