Cynthia Vincent for Target

I have been coveting Cynthia's work in shoes for over a year, but the steep price tag has always prevented me from making them mine. When I heard Target was collaborating with her to say I was excited would be an understatement. I am now a proud owner of what I think she does best--overly strappy wedges--for only $30. They are super comfy, and I have already gotten tons of complements on them! You better hurry to your closest Target because they are selling out fast, or you can always buy them on eBay for about $15 over the current retail price.

My First Giveaway!!

I am so thrilled to be offering my readers my first ever giveaway. A dear friend of mine, Wendi, has a special talent for making sweet, feminine jewelry with a vintage twist (some pieces even use real vintage beads). On top of that, her prices are so reasonable! She has offered to let the winner of the giveaway pick her (or his) favorite piece! Here is how it works--you will receive one entry if you are a current follower or sign up to be a follower and you will get an additional entry if you leave a comment.

Check out Wendi's Etsy site to explore her whole spring/summer collection.

See below for some of my personal favs!

Denim, Denim, Everywhere

Have you noticed how everything has gone denim? I have wanted a soft, light denim button-up forever. One that is comfy, modern, and didn't break the bank. I found one today a Walmart thanks to Miley Cyrus herself. The original price tag said $18, but it rang up for only $10. I am totally wearing this tomorrow and turning denim Friday upside down.

Favorite Fashion Apps

The influx of smart phones has permeated every aspect of our life, including how I personally approach fashion and shopping. I thought I would share some of my favorite iPhone apps that have changed my approach to style forever.

Ask a Stylist by Glamour Magazine
Cost: Free

This app is brand new and uh-mazing. Glamour has offered up the services of several NYC-based stylists 24 hours a day. You simply take a pic of the outfit in contention, answer a few questions, ask your specific question and within minutes have a professional, polite, and insightful style answer. I am in LOVE!!

Trendtrack by Trendstop
Cost: Free

This app catalogs all the latest fashion shows from around the world. You have the ability to see the latest from Milan with a simple touch of a button. But my favorite part is the "Trend" tab where you can quickly scroll through Trendstop's latest and greatest trend observations. Some can be very easily integrated into a wardrobe immediately.

Cost: Free

BEWARE! This app is dangerous for the wallet. It is basically a one-stop-shop for all things fashion with all the hottest retailers. It is so easy to browse and buy that it doesn't even feel like spending money. I could get lost in this app for hours and spend thousand of dollars.
Cost: Free

It is like having Anna Wintour in your pocket. OK maybe not, but this is probably the closest you and I will ever get to her. This app is really like having Vogue magazine in a digital format.

Cost: $0.99

You know when you watched Clueless for the first time and you absolutely died for Alicia Silverstone's virtual closet? Well 15 years later you can finally have it. TouchCloset allows you to take pics and catalogue your whole closet. You can make outfits and even note when you wore them last. It makes choosing what to wear in the morning so much more fun and easy.

Do you have any fashion/style apps that you love?
