Happy Labor Day Weekend!

One of my favourite things to do towards the end of a season, is to scope out Shopbop for bargains during their final sales period. Sadly as much time as I spend stalking Shopbop, I have no actually bought anything from there besides a pair of Marc by MJ shoes which I'd been pining for months and have tried on in real life first. But alas, I keep trying. Here is what I've scout out this season- and for those of you interested, don't forget to act fast on the Labor Day weekend sale! It IS the day to reap the rewards of your labor after all (or so my friend tells me).
A elegant silk red top (Rebecca Taylor) that is sexy yet feminine and girly at the same time, with the cute rosettes lining the bodice. And no, these YSL heels are not from Shopbop, but I thought I'd include them anyway since these two items clearly belong with each other (they are also on sale!).
Items that I probably wouldn't mind wearing next year- and maybe in the next month or so depending on the weather. Only the blue color of this BopBasic top (left) is on sale, but this was the color that caught my eye anyway. You should go check out the back- it is a pretty fabulous design! And this dress is like the navy version of the little black dress updated with cute ruffles.
Lately I am loving the wide legged pants and these blue jeans from J Brand (right) will carry you into fall. Not so much the khaki one from Robert Rodriguez (left), but then it looks really airy and comfortable- it's one of those things that you will wear again next year- even if it is just down the street to run errands!Speaking of things I will wear next year, I will definitely wear this floppy white hat by Eugenia Kim with this simple white dress by Milly. This is just a summer classic outfit. I just love the hat, the construction of it is perfect. It droops and flops at just the right places! This dark floral top from Rebecca Taylor (left) is a hot item that will mix well super well into your FW08 wardrobe i.e. under blazers, with layers etc etc. Ok, so maybe this Anna Sui top (right) is not exactly very versatile, but I wanted to include it in anyway, just because I love the mixing of prints and the over all quirkiness of this top- it will definitely make a statement.

Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone!

That Eugenia Kim floppy hat is adorable! It would be perfect for an outdoor wedding or party.

I love the Anna Sui top. Never mind that it's not versatile. It has character! It would be lovely to pair that AS top with dark denims, no-nonsense trousers, and shorts.

That hat is so cute! If I did have money though, I would definitely get the wide leg dark jeans.

As a true and hard working fashionista I have to be honest, a large majority of those outifts are not appealing or goodlooking.
The basic things like the hat and shoes are nice, but those outfits just seem like casual wear, not fashion wear.
The white wide legged jeans are not stylish to most levels, but the nazy ruffeled dress is a must.

Please don't be mad at me for being honest.

I really like the look of wide legged pants too. I'm a sucker for skinny jeans, but variety is good.

Is it wrong of me to want to iron those khaki pants?

I've always known I was a little obsessive compulsive...

Good job!
