You may have noticed a new little button that popped up on me blog this week; but in the likely chance that you didn’t, I’m here to introduce the magical square box on the upper left hand corner of me site.

The box is a link to my brand new store over on Style Owner; a place where you can find everything from my favorite brands to the items I’m currently coveting to trends I’m digging like a dog for his bone. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m someone who spends a ridiculous decent amount of time browsing shopping sites and as a result, I frequently receive questions along the lines of “where can I find *insert clothing item*?” My goal for my Style Owner store is to not only share the items I want more than a double kettle martini with extra olives right now, but to also create categorized “Style Pages” (see under the “All Recommendations” section) where you’ll find clothing/shoes/accessories broken down into specific genres. Going on a hot date? Bitch, I got you covered. Shopping for music festival gear? Consider me your personal shopper. Hiking up Mt. Everest? …I don’t think you want my help there…

Though still a work in progress, do the right thing and check out my store; and as always, I love feedback and requests! So hit me up!

I know you guys were expecting a “Week in Review” for today, but let’s mix things up shall we?

Ok. Here we go!

The first store on my Mastercard Priceless New York shopping tour list is Flying A, where affordable casual chic jeans, jackets, and jumpers hangout with 1960s boho dresses and romper boots. I admittedly had never heard of this store before but now have it wedged into my hefty list of must-stop Soho shops. I must have tried on over eight pairs of their colorful denim this past weekend and am still cursing myself for not buying a pair of Pour la Victoire chestnut brown boots. Another item on my “curse myself for not buying” list are some ridiculously cute necklaces with teeny tiny animal charms (and when I say teeny tiny I mean it - a little piggy’s tail was less than a centimeter long!). As much as I try to convince myself that my style is sophistication at it’s finest, I have a serious weakness for cute animal accessories. Luckily, now that Flying A is on my radar I’ll have plenty of other opportunities to buy the aforementioned boots and necklaces and all those other pieces I deem as “necessities.”

Currently Obsessed

The virtual shopping cart has become my best friend and worst enemy. On a daily basis I check to see whether my favorite online stores have any new products, sale items, or anything I could have possibly missed on my previous day of internet browsing. Wall Street Journal? PSH! Gimme some Shopbop and Net-a-Porter, stat!

Though I do love me some shopping posts, there’s no way I could put one up everyday, plus I think that would get a bit redundant for you. Thankfully, RewardStyle has saved the day with the launch of Currently Obsessed; a little webpage where you can see all the things that tickle my fancy and will most likely end up in a style post. Plus it’s a great way for me to keep track of all those items I put into my virtual shopping carts that don’t exactly make it past the purchase button. Check out my store here!

Priceless Excursions

January 18, 2012

As I mentioned before, I’ve teamed up with Glamour and MasterCard to take Mastercard cardholders on a shopping excursion throughout Soho. This past weekend was the official kickoff and it did not disappoint! Starting at Ground Support, a Soho coffee shop which boasts some seriously good coffee and homemade peanut butter and jelly sandwiches that I can’t stop craving, I met my first few shoppers for a brief style consultation before we hit the frosty pavements to get our shop on. With a total of three stores on our itinerary - Flying A, Patina, and AvaMaria, all of which I will highlight in the next couple of days - my shoppers and I turned into serious scavengers as we scoured the racks trying on colorful trousers, vintage statement jewelry, and discounted designer shoes that make my toes wiggle with delight.

I’ll be doing this for the next few weekends and can’t wait to meet my next set of shoppers!

Is this something you guys would be interested in? I feel like I should do it again once it’s warmer…
