This has been a crazy week! I honestly don’t even know what day it is today…Friday? Sunday? Who knows. Well, whatever day it is, I’ve got some fancy new kick-ass tops to wear, thanks to Elizabeth & Clarke. Fashion show time!
Have you heard of these guys yet? If not, prepare to be super stoked about your wardrobe. Elizabeth & Clarke knows that “you need basics”. Whether you’re a chic fashionista or just your average “Jill” this subscription service will make you feel in style, current and totes fab. Featured in the Huffington Post, The New York Observer and Fab.com, Elizabeth & Clarke’s quarterly boxes of high-qual fashion stapes are right on the money. Cha-ching!
Here’s the Scoop:
Get designer quality blouses & tees delivered to your doorstep each season for $30 bucks or less.
WHAT’S IN THE BOX:
- You get a box of neutral color, fashion-forward seasonal shirts
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST:
$ 60 bucks a season (including shipping) for 3 shirts

It’s awesome! And, you can return anything you don’t love.
Here’s what I got in my box:
This baby was my fave of the bunch (a little big on me, but I kinda like it that way). This is most def a top that can be worn for more than one season.
and, last but not least, a while linen button down. I typically don’t gravitate towards linen, which is why this is the only linen piece I own (as of a week or so ago!). But, once I learned how to style it via the Elizabeth & Clarke blog, I was like, “watch out world. This girl’s about to rock a linen top”.
The moral of the story? I’ve never received a box like this and am SO happy I had the opportunity to try it. I’m fo-sho going to be asking the birthday Santa and real Santa for this as a gift! Feel free to scope on more awesome subscription boxes in my Insanely Huge Directory of Subscription boxes!

It’s the most beauteous Tuesday ever created! Not only am I killin’ it in week 3 of Jillian Michaels “Ripped in 30“, my tootsies are rockin’ a sweet new pair of awesomely fun socks. It’s a party over here, people!! The only thing missing is a salad made completely out of cupcakes. Oh, my god what I would give for just one fluffy lil’ cupcake. But I gotta keep my eye on the prize for now (the prize being putting on a bathing suit without scaring small children and cute animals). And besides, today is all about the skinniest part of my bod – my feet:
Thanks to my friends at Sock Panda, my feet are looking extra fabulous today! I’m a total sucker for good quality, groove-a-licious socks. So, when I heard about this super sweet sock subscription I was all over it! Their motto is simple: “You sign up. We send you cool socks every month. You are happy.“ Boom. Done.
Here’s the scoop:
Sock Panda is a monthly subscription service that provides you with fun socks every month. Grow your collection, give them as gifts, and wear them to school, to work, or out and about. ALSO AVAILABLE FOR MEN!
WHAT’S IN THE BOX:
- You get 1-4 pairs of socks per month (you choose the # of socks you want each month when you sign up)
WHAT’S IT GONNA COST:
$ 11 bucks (per sock) per month (including shipping)
HERE’S WHAT I GOT:
I was excited to receive 2 pair of flashy socks in my package. When you subscribe, you get to pick the quantity and category you’d like to get. I received one pair from the “Cool Category” and one pair from the “Bold” category.
The first pair were from Happy Socks. These knee-high geometrical gems are SO comfy and also way fun. The only thing that would make them better would be if I was wearing them while eating a cupcake salad.
The second pair (by Frank Dandy) are made from bamboo! Um, how cool is that? Apparently, bamboo keeps your feet nice and cool. It also absorbs way better than other materials, so if you have stinky ones, these lil’ numbers might be your saving grace. Pair them with a cupcake salad and you’re a winner.
Wow, my size 5 feet look ginormous in these pics. Ginormously cute that is.
Bottom line? Sock Panda is where it’s at. Treat your feet to something awesome! Go ahead, you know you wanna.
I for one, am off to walk around my neighborhood flaunting my nifty new socks. My neighbors are gonna be wicket jealous.

Happy “stupid word I hate to spell” day! Let’s get straight to biz-nass. Everpurse. Have you heard of it? Do you own it? Are you with me, that this is the coolest techy-fashion piece ever made, ever? Really, it is. And, thanks to PureWow, we got to meet in person. Well, not really “in person” but “over the internet” which is sorta-kinda the same thing.
Lady geeks and fellow fashion fiends, I bring to you, the Everpurse:
I won’t pretend that I’m a huge fan of technology. Primarily because anything that could be argued as technology hates me. I’m serious. I look at my computer and it gives me the middle finger before flaunting it’s disgusting blue screen of death. Apparently, my computer has had a pow-wow with my mouse, my iPad, and my toaster. Freaking, jerks.
Anyway, the point is that despite my feud with electronical stuff, I am IN LUST with this bag. I was immediately drawn to it the moment I saw it and cannot wait to get a job as a stripper so that I can afford one in every style and color.
Let’s talk Everpurse -
WHY IS IT THE AWESOMEST?
Function meets fashion. The Everpurse has a secret hiding pocket that is super special. You slide your smartphone into the dock connector thingy at the bottom of docking system (patent-pending) and – Viola! Charging your phone while also looking super-cute!
When you need to charge the Everpurse itself, you plop it on it’s charging mat. And (here’s where it gets super technical) it uses “inductive charging to send energy wirelessly from the mat to the purse“. That’s fancy talk for Science, which is enveloped in an 8.5 x 7 slice of awesome (oh, that’s the size of the bag itself).
SOME OF MY FAVES:
Um, so these babies are not cheap by any means. They are most definitely an investment piece, that seem to be really worth your investment. Plus, although they are totally cute enough to use on their own, they are also tiny enough to fit in a bigger purse, which let’s you use it daily.

Ha ha. The pic below is hilarious. Let’s start off by saying that Modern Family is probably one of the most hilarious shows ever made (a super-duper close second to New Girl (love!), How I Met Your Mother and the Mindy Project). Love it. And, I love Jesse Tyler Ferguson. I would totally marry him, if I was single and he was into ladies. Ok, well that’s a lie. I wouldn’t marry him. But I would totally add him to my best friend circle.
Anyway, I’m pretty sure you’ve heard about what’s happening at the Supreme Court this week. If you haven’t, I ask you to crawl out from beneath that comfy lil’ blanket you’re snuggling under and turn on your telly! I’m so bossy aren’t it?
No seriously though. I’m not here to impose my views on you…clearly, I support marriage equality – If you have read any of my past blog posts you will recall that I’ve asked several types of foods, websites and subscription box companies to marry me. I don’t discriminate. Love is love people. But today isn’t about me. Today I wanna show my support by sharing some kick-ass charitable bow ties made by my best friend Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Tie The Knot was founded by my Bestie (JTF) and Justin Mikita, having the goal to advocate for the civil rights of gay and lesbian Americans (with somethin’ UBER fancy, I might add). Their super fun, stylish and unique neckwear is inspired by some of their faves: Art, Fashion, stuff they see on the street, etc.
Thier bow ties are created in limited quality to “promote uniqueness & individuality”. And, (best part) all proceeds from the sale of bow ties go to a variety of organizations that are in the fight for gay and lesbian civil rights. To break it down further, that means that $20 bucks of every $25 dolla fancy neck accessory YOU buy goes directly to taking a stand & making a change. Pretty sweet. And, it’s pretty simple, as they say: “suit up, and Tie The Knot—so that someday, we can too.“ Love it. Buy some freaking bow ties people!
I THOUGHT THESE WERE THE CUTEST

Thank you Pure Citizen for featuring this cutie-patoot sweatshirt by Vaute Couture!
This Friends Not Food sweatshirt is Easter Bunny approved for a couple of reasons: (a) it’s painted with water based inks on a sweatshop free eco-heather fleece (that’s recycled polyester & organic cotton baby!), (b) it has “peeps” on it which makes it super easter-y; and (c) it has a kangaroo pocket – and well, Kangaroos are both the cutest, and also cover up your Easter face-stuffing belly rolls. Bow chica, bow, wow.
Find it: here for $49 bucks (originally $70 – On sale today only!)
