Into The Gap

I was going to post my “How-To” on making greeting cards, but that’s going to have to wait until tomorrow because it’s going to take a little while to put together.  Instead, I’m going to post my latest purchase.  I’m sure you won’t mind!

I have been coveting these Pierre Hardy for Gap wedge sandals on The Glamourai for about a month (pictured left and seen here).  I didn’t realize that they just came out at the beginning of the summer.  I was looking to use a “Give & Get” coupon that my best friend sent me (she works for Banana Republic).  Feeding America gets 5% of what you spend when you use the 30% off promo code online, or the coupon in the store.  I was browsing through Piperlime.com and decided to check out Gap.com.  I found the shoes still online…and on sale!

Originally $98, they were on sale for $59.99.  With my coupon, they were just $41.  So I saved money and gave to a great cause.  And as I posted not too long ago, it’s still an endless summer for wedges (see the entry here)!

2 for 1: Great Clog Blog and a Shoe Discount!

Charli-C in Black Suede - Jeffrey Campbell

I entered a contest through a blog entry at Jeffrey Campbell’s official site, which was through another blog called “Every Clog Has It’s Day“.  When entering the contest, I mistakenly thought that the entry was from the JC blog and only realized after not winning that it is its own blog (click on the link or check out my Blog Roll).  

What a very cool blog all about…clogs!  This gal truly has a love for the shoe, and why not?  I’ve always liked clogs myself (I own 3 pairs) because of the vintage feel and bold look they provide any outfit.  Stylish and natural (due to the wood), it provides a sort of whimsy feeling for me.  I think of my bakya (wooden clogs) from the Philippines when I was 8 that I bought at the palenke (marketplace).  My family took a trip there and I brought back a pair of the colorful shoes.  I wore them until they couldn’t fit.  They were beautiful:  I remember the carvings in the heel and embroidered upper fastened with nails…I think I’ve found my source for all things to do with the wooden shoe.  What a great blog Lindsey and thanks for that little trip down memory lane! 

I didn’t win a pair of Jeffery Campbell’s shoes, but I did get a great discount at a site called Lori’s Shoes out of Chicago.  While you had to enter the contest to get the deal I did, first time visitors get $10 off of your purchase of $75 or more by taking a survey located on a link at the site or by entering your email to subscribe to their newsletter. 

(UPDATE:  I just bought the Jeffrey Campbell pair pictured in this blog!) 

Enjoy this 2 for 1 entry about a great shoe blog and a great deal!  I’ll surf a little on both while my little one is taking a snooze.

Deal of the Day: Pacifica Del Mar

My friend Angi and I went out to dinner last week at Pacifica Del Mar in Del Mar, California.  I had eaten there before with my friend Janice, so I knew it was a great place to have dinner.  The atmosphere is very California cool and they have a beautiful view of the ocean from their outdoor seating.  The food is fresh and flavorful, and their dinner prices range from $25-$50.  My favorites were the appetizers: Angi had the Ahi Tuna Tartare (pictured below) and I had the Dungeness Crab Cakes.  Tasty!

Bloomingdale’s: Cargo and Carry

Blank Skinny Cargo Pants - Bloomingdale's

I’m loving the “Skinny Cargo” style that I’ve been seeing lately.  Bloomingdale’s has a nice section on their site called “Denim Alternatives” that shows off the brands they have for this cute trend. 

My husband loves the cargo shorts to play golf in and to relax in for our mini family trips on the weekends.  So now my son has adopted his relaxed style with his own little cargo shorts.  I’ve always liked that rugged yet urban/utilitarian look cargos have, especially now that it’s in a slimmer more stylish look which fits my taste a bit more. 

What I also found on the Bloomies site was their “Bag A Day” give away.   If you just found out about it like I did (how did I miss that email?), then you also missed out on a weeks worth of  “Bag A Day” entries.  Fear not my fellow fashionista!  There is still time to get in on the action until August 15th.  Just go to the Bloomingdale’s site and click on the link on the very bottom of the page to enter your information, or you can click here:  Bag A Day.  I’ve already started my entries…is it wishful thinking to start making room for in my closet for them? 

Everything Old is New Again

Hermes Pale Green Silk Pochette Scarf Pierres d'Orient et d'Occident - Portero Luxury

The search for online vintage items is a fickle thing:  Sometimes the find is great and sometimes it’s far less than what you hoped.  Ebay is a good start, but I have discovered a better place. 

Portero Luxury is one of the best places to find luxury items for a fraction of the cost.  I’m not sure how many people are in the hunt for Hermès scarves, but I was able to get it at a decent price.  It’s a Pierres d’Orient et d’Occident pochette scarf by Zoe Pauwels, which was originally issued back in 1988 (from what I’ve read, and I don’t claim to be an expert by any means).  Granted, it’s not a shawl, stole or large scarf, but it is vintage Hermès.  

Portero labels their items by their condition (examples: Good, Fair, Very Good, etc).  This scarf was labeled “Pr” for “Pristine”, meaning it was never used and came with the original box.  Portero stands behind their authenticity or you get your money back.  Plus, there is no bidding.  Everything is has a static price.  

I will always use Ebay for my initial searches.  But if you are in the market for vintage items that are guaranteed authentic, give Portero Luxury a try.  It’s the difference between hoping and knowing.

Coach (coupon) of the Week

I think I’ll try the Coach Factory Outlet store at the Carlsbad Premium Outlet this time around to use the 20% off coupon that I received today in my inbox.  Then I’ll make a pit stop at the Juicy Couture outlet store and the Barneys New York outlet, too. 

The picture on the right should take you to a coupon you can print.  If you can’t click on the picture, click on this link to get your coupon:  20% off Coach Coupon until Aug 8

Happy shopping!
