Dear Creatures Fall 2010

I am obsessed with Dear Creatures, it is just the perfect mix of preppy, vintagey, cutesy.  Plus it's not TOO expensive.  Here are my favorites:

Paddle Coat, Audrey Plaid Blouse 

 Avalon Dress

Tudor Blazer, Audrey Gingham Blouse

I like how it's so easy to make a cute outfit, most of the looks include the black ankle pant + black shiny T-strap flats.  I've seen the biggest selection of Dear Creatures clothes on 80's Purple and there've been a few sales on Swirl.  I think I'm going to spring for the Blossom Dress.

Selena Gomez Dream Out Loud Collection at K-Mart & Sears

Yikes, I've been MIA!  My grad school days have started so I expect to be an intermittent blogger.

Anyway, I have been curious about Selena Gomez' Dream Out Loud Collection at K-Mart / Sears.  I know it is for juniors and it's K-Mart but I was suckered in by the whole Selena Gomez branding.  I'm not an uber fan but I do think she has an interesting style.  Ok, so here are my thoughts:

1) The dove theme sort of reminds me of the MJ Petal to the Metal stuff:

Marc by Marc Jacobs - Petal to the Metal Flap Pouchette (via Saks)

2) The graphic tees are cheesy (PEACE! LOVE! SMILES!), so I avoided.
3) The hoodies seemed cheap; the plaid shirts not my thing; stripey shirts in fugly popsicle colors.
4) Here are the items I did try on:

Ruffle Henley Top ($12) - This was really long and tunic-y, but soft and cute.  I liked it better in white.
Crochet Trim Tunic ($12) - I really liked this with the pockets and crochet, also very soft.  Unfortunately the underarms are cut really weird, like sort of flying squirrelish and not flattering.

Knit Blazer ($18) - Ok so my K-Mart didn't have this, but I am contemplating buying it online just to try it and check the quality.  The flower buttons are cute but maybe I would switch them out for something more mature.

Banana Republic Memoir Ballet Flat

I went window shopping over the weekend, and found a very nice pair of go-with-everything flats at Banana Republic.

$79 Banana Republic Memoir Ballet Flat in "Rose"

Things I like about these shoes include the nice memory foam foot bed - so comfortable, perhaps better than Gentle Souls; the rubber soles - no scuffs; and the shiny!  I'm not crazy about the suede, probably very easy to get dirty.  Gap Give & Get is going on now (30% off - Google it!) so the price is maybe not so bad?  Decisions, decisions.

PB Teen Chloe Jewelry Vanity Pinboard

I think this is a really good idea for a jewelry organization thingy.  Too bad it's $49, on sale!  Trying to figure out how I can DIY this for cheap.

Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Nugget Crossbody Bag

So I'm taking a break from blogging restaurants to show you my latest purchase.  It is the Classic Q Nugget Crossbody Bag, which is an awful cute name.  I got an awesome deal on it with 40% Bing cashback from - too bad Bing cashback is no longer.  Endless had awesomely fast shipping too.  Well here it is!

This is the "Chambray" color.

I loves it!  It's pretty small but should at least hold cellphone-wallet-keys.  I haven't seen this color available anywhere since I bought the second to last one from Endless...but it also comes in Black, Brown, Tourmaline Green, and Steel.  Personally I like Steel the best out of those colors, and it is available at Bloomingdale's.
