Rock the bling and really shine for summer
May 31, 2008

Hello bejeweled beauties.

Sure, there is urban outfitters jewelry, but if you love the vintage-y feel and don’t want to see another bohemian princess rocking the same thing, swing by Eclectic Eccentricity.

It’s a UK-based company, but they ship internationally and have similar prices to UO. I love this Japanese heart necklace with those birds that are so in style right now.

happy summer!


Exam Break at Tilly’s
April 29, 2008

Maybe it’s a final that you’re stressing so you put a little less effort into what you’re wearing.

After getting coffee at 4 a.m. at Sheetz and then heading back to the library, you figure it’s all right to stroll in wearing a bulky sweatshirt.

I almost agree, but I also feel dressing cute can beat the exam blues. Today is gloomy, the basement at my mother’s house flooded and the worst thing is? I packed all of my winter clothes away. So of course it’s cold.

Rather than unpack, I checked out Tilly’s to feel the warmth of bargains and to see if any great sweatshirts had gone on sale. Look at these.

Even if you’re not a fan of swing jackets, you can not beat a beautiful red one for only $4.97

The jacket is pretty springy, but it’s always a good idea to check out what is out of season for maximum savings. I love this sweatshirt for $39. 97, originally $68.99. I adore the all-over leaf print.

Good luck on finals, we’ll be rooting for you here at Newest Wrinkles, despite being buried under our academics as well,

(A little sad) But also an Opportunity!
April 18, 2008

Well yesterday I swung by Second Edition to pick up my final consignment check. The much loved and locally owned consignment store will be closing its doors for good on April 27th.
Yes it’s very sad. The mother and daughter that work there are the nicest people.

However, they are also having an ENORMOUS closing sale. Everything must go!

So take advantage of the opportunity to buy brand name, very gently used clothes for less than you have ever seen them before!

Enjoy the sunshine!


Flash Back to the 60’s (i.e.-MOD!)
April 7, 2008

Innovative, Creative, Bold & Brash. No, I’m not talking about a new rock band. I’m talking about the re-birth of the 1960’s Mod fashion trend and is THE trend for all of the A-list celebrities. Since the fashion trend doesn’t have strict guidelines, this “anything goes,” youthful oriented trend can easily be found in your local department stores. I shopped some great spring dresses with contrasting hues at Maurices & also check out Express for their bright spring looks—both stores are found at the Harrisonburg Valley Mall! ~ Ritzy ‘Razzi
