Gloomy Days Got You Down?

I know the recent days of rain, clouds, gloom and even snow are hard to stomach when it should be spring, right?! It’s Iowa for crying out loud.  By now, we’ve usually skipped completely over spring temperatures and heading right into the 80 degree days.  Maybe this is how Spring is supposed to be?  I don’t know.  I do know it’s not doing much for my standard cheery attitude.  So… we gotta work with what we can control.

Try on some of these BOLD pieces that are certain to brighten your day … and the ones around you!  How can you be gloomy in a pair of HOT PINK skinny jeans???  Exactly!  And that electric blue…definitely one of my major crushes this season…I’m up to 5 shirts in that color alone.  All of our stores are currently gathering up these BOLD beauties waiting for you to pluck them from the racks like flowers in a garden.  Watch for our colorful displays and tell mother nature she can be gloomy all she wants… but you’re taking another route!


New Year’s Eve Attire

So now that my New Year’s plans have been finalized, it’s imperative that I find the perfect evening attire!  I was flipping through In Style magazine on my lunch and stumble across this beauty.  I am absolutely crushing on this electric blue shirt and silver just happens to be my best friend so on paper it looks like a win/win.  I happened to be at the Iowa City store today (Hwy 6E next to Slumberland), and thought I’d see if I could replicate this ensemble in some fashion (especially the blue).

GUESS WHAT??!!  It’s even better than I could have imagined…check it out!  The shirt is the most amazing color of blue BUT the cherry of this outfit is the large silver rose necklace…it is To. Die. For!
