Shop It to Me Sale of the Day

Doncian Dress in Lilac and Oatmeal
Original:  $425
NOW:  $255

Current Obsession: ideeli

ideeli is fabu new members only shopping community that offers authentic luxury items for 50-90% off the original price...and GIVEAWAYS (like that gorgeous Burberry Brook Hobo-originally $850) every week!  Regular membership is free and includes regular sale alerts.  1st Row Membership costs $7 per month and upgrades sale alerts via text message and first chance at giveaways.  

I have not yet purchased anything through ideeli but trust me...I have been tempted by just about every sale alert so far.  I am currently just a regular member...not sure about the paid membership perks as I have not been closed out of any of the sales yet.  (The items are often available in limited numbers and 1st Row Members get first dibs).  

Membership is currently closed but I have a ton of invitations so feel free to comment with your name and email address and I am happy to share!

Oscars 2008: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

I debated to Oscar fashion post or not to Oscar fashion post.  The blogosphere is littered with the remnants of fashion victims and award victories today, and I was not sure if it was even necessary to add my two shiny cents.  Yet, I absolutely fell in lust with the drama of Heidi Klum's runway look.  

Let the good, the bad, and the ugly commence...CB Style:

Dreaming Beyond the Sales...

So, I have lately been in a sad shopping state.  One in which I trudge out every Saturday morning, no-foam soy latte in hand, traversing in and out of many a dressing room entry...only to leave deflated and empty handed.  I think that trying to be so to speak "fiscally responsibility" (retch), I am losing the trigger ready credit card hand I once had.  This may be beneficial to my savings account...which has now morphed into our savings account...which carries with it much more thought behind each withdrawal.  

Still the many minutes I spend in front of my wardrobe every morning has seriously soured my mood so much that I decided I need to break the seal.  So I resorted back to one of my old favorites, the Urban Outfitters Sale Section.

A small win but an important leap towards my shopping re-birth.  Now counting down the days to my tax return...I have just the pieces in mind to complete the outfit.

So sorry to anyone who is out there and by any chance still checking in on little old CB.  After a cross country move and a life devouring first six months at my new job, I am finally rejuvenated and sadly missing my daily fashion outpourings.  So hopefully we can start anew...just as those resort collections hit the store fronts.
