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!

Gwyneth Paltrow comes up short…
May 6, 2008

Can you believe she’s had two children! The woman looks amazing and is married to one of the most lovable and sincere musicians of today…

However.

This to me is simply a faux pas.

Summer is fantastic for showing off those stems in a minidress, but lets keep it mid-thigh ladies.

I think I spy a  little butt cheek, and that just isn’t right.

So Gwyn, we love you, but please, extend the hemline juuuuuuuust an inch and keep your goods to yourself!

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,

Mixing Celebrity with Online Cheap
April 23, 2008

I found my muse in Stacy who recommended this awesome site to me as a great way to save bucks while saving face. No worries about looking amazing though, Asos replicates celebrity pieces that you know will look good in case some paparazzi are waiting behind the bushes.

In an homage to J’Adore Me, you don’t just have the Valley Mall for your closet to look like a celebrity. Asos is a British site that offers celeb lookalikes for maximum style. You don’t have to have grown up in the O.C. for some stress relief during this hectic time. This week, when time is of the essence, O.C. stands for Online Cheap.

Try this Mischa-inspired shirt to airily traipse around town or to dance the night away.

Have your currency converter ready though. In U.S. dollars, this style is only $13.21.

May your week be stress-free,

Lim.mie
