Finish off with a squeeze of lime juice
I need to finish up laundry and getting ready so I can go shopping. Christmas money is already burning a hole in my pocket... I briefly checked out H&M yesterday but I didn't have time to really dig through the racks. So I'll hit up Short Pump Town Center and Regency in a little bit.
I'll keep you posted if I find anything good!
Earlier this week on Wednesday, I managed to record my Bargainista Babe spot for Q94's Melissa and Sid which aired on Thursday morning. I haven't heard the official end result myself but I talked to a few who caught it on air and said it was really good.
So here's a re-cap of what I featured!
You always want to look fabulous on New Years Eve and a classic little black dress (L.B.D.) is always a good choice. My two picks are by Old Navy and AB Studio at Kohl's. Both dresses feature empire waists which are great if you enjoyed a bit more than your fair share of cookies, fudge and other holiday delights. The AB Studio dress is good for covering up any "arm jiggle" but still shows a bit of tasteful cleavage (sounds like an oxymoron but trust me on this one).
A great dress always needs a great pair of shoes to go with it! I've liked some of the shoes for the Hollywould line at Target, these red shoes are too cute and will add a nice pop of color to your outfit. Check out the matching clutch too!
I'm still a Payless girl at heart so check out their massive collection of cute party shoes. Ladies, remember that you do need a bit of a heel when wearing empire waist dresses so you don't look frumpy and make sure to wear your heels around the house a bit to break them in before New Year's Eve!
If you decide to stick with a black or metallic shoe, why not add some color with some fun footless or patterned tights in a bright color! Target always has a great selection of fun hosiery but also check out DOTS, Ross, T.J. Maxx, and K&G Fashion Superstore as well. You never know what you might find! DOTS also has a good selection of cute metallic and sequined clutches so if you want to go the metallic route for a handbag, check them out!
For jewelry I'd suggest a pair of dangly earrings and a cute bangle. Target has a cute jewelry selection including their Marvella line. A fun pair of earrings will work for New Year's Eve as well as any fancy event or to dress up a simple outfit.
I hope you all have a great Christmas and a happy holiday season! Happy New Year too!!!
So if you're looking to treat yourself or someone else during the holidays, give Let's Face It a call at (804)364-1112. They've got lots of great specials going on so call to find out!
So the lovely ChicArmoire requested I show off my new boots I ordered from Nordstrom.com. I should be able to upload a picture later on in the day but here's the link to the Trotter's Audrey boots online.

I'm in a migraine induced fog today so back to being passed out on the couch... Ugh.
