Vegan Booties-J.Adams

Posted in amazon, budget online shopping, online shopping, shopping on a budget, Vegan Shopping with tags , , , , , , on April 24, 2017 by sorceressofthedark

Vegan boots and shoes.  That’s what I look for, since I am a vegetarian. With the internet, it’s easy. Shopping stores, it’s exceedingly difficult. I went into a big-box store looking for vegan shoes and handbags recently and was exceedingly disappointed. I found one handbag in TJMaxx. One. Really? Loads of designer bags with price points that went over $300 tho that were leather. But only one that was a vegan bag. I’m not looking for a straw bag or a canvas bag. I simply want a nice handbag that doesn’t look like it will fall apart and that it’s designed well. Is it so hard to find? Yes, it is.

Same for shoes or boots. Almost impossible if I try to shop the stores. If I ask a salesperson, they look at me like I’m crazy because I don’t want leather. When they ask why in the world I wouldn’t want leather, I really don’t want to go into details, I simply tell them I’m a vegetarian. Then I get That Look.

So I found these vegan booties by J.Adams on Amazon. Then scrolling through their other shoes I realized J.Adams also sells a whole lot of other vegan shoes, boots and sandals. I’m in heaven. I don’t have to get dirty looks from non-informed sales associates and I can shop to my heart’s content knowing animals are safe.

They’re comfortable and that’s what matters to me. The price is good, too. $29.90 with Prime (free shipping) is a great deal as far as I’m concerned.  Here’s my basic review:

I have them in tan and the color pretty much goes with everything. I like the perforation for the spring and summer for more of a cooling effect. The heel isn’t too high to make this an uncomfortable height. I normally wear a 9 1/2 so I went with the 10 which fits well enough but is a tad larger than I expected. However, since the toe is rather pointy, the 9 would have been too small, so the 10 it is. Bear that in mind when you’re choosing this bootie. Definitely a cute shoe. Length of a size 10 is 10 7/8 inches. The width of the cuff is 11 1/4 inches. Heel height is 1 7/8 inches with a platform of 1/4 inch. The heel base is 3 inches long by 2 1/2 wide, very easy for walking. Zipper height 5 inches. Heels are rubberized and quiet when you walk. I’ve had booties for a long time that I’ve worn for fashion’s sake that have made my feet hurt at the end of the day but these are quite comfortable. I don’t long to take them off. Perfect with jeans and long dresses/skirts.

Hope more companies care.

Peace,

Sorceress.

How To Shop Online At Amazon Or Anywhere…

Posted in amazon, budget online shopping, budget shopping, online shopping, Sephora, shopping, shopping on a budget, Target stores, The Gap with tags , , , , on February 21, 2017 by sorceressofthedark

black-friday-shoppers_zpsqpeze3be.gif Do I really want to go to the mall or do I want to stay in the comfort of my own home and shop online? Hmmm….

When I was a little girl, my Mom would go away for 6 weeks every spring to Miami. That was her vacation that she looked forward to all year. She’d either stay at the Eden Roc or the Fontainebleau and I could only imagine what it was like to spend 6 weeks away from the cold winter luxuriating in the Florida sun for that long. My first Spring Break in college, I was invited to spend with her in Miami.  The deal was that if I spent my first Spring Break supervised I could spend the rest of them with my friends. That was fine with me. I wasn’t going to spend Spring Break at home, and if I could spend it in Florida, I would. Especially in one of these old-fashioned, grande dame hotels.

Before she would go away, two racks of clothing would appear in her home from one of the local boutiques. The owner would choose clothing for her, send it along to the house, and she would have the options of trying it on, keeping what she wanted and sending the rest back. If she didn’t like what they sent, they’d send more. What a deal. I’d sit and watch her try the resort clothing on and think how easy this is to go shopping. Never leave your home.

She’d also often have packages sent to her from her favorite NYC department store, Saks . I honestly don’t know if she just didn’t want to carry these bags with her when she did go to the City, if she had a personal shopper or just called them to order items. The internet wasn’t available back then. Catalogs were also available so you could order that way if you desired. All I know is that somehow, stuff arrived at the home in ways that seemed unorthodox to me.

Well, that’s what online shopping is all about. Some companies have you choose the clothing, and some companies have personal shoppers that choose the clothing for you. Some companies don’t have shipping costs, some have minimal shipping costs and some charge you flat rate shipping. The best scenario is to find online sources that have no shipping costs, the best prices and obviously the items of clothing that appeal to you in one stop shopping. Navigating their site easily is highly beneficial too.

Some of my friends are against online shopping today. They look at it as an inconvenience. It’s basically the same as what I’ve described shopping to be years ago. It hasn’t changed. You can save yourself time, money and a huge stress factor by shopping in the comfort of your own home.

I’ve shopped online thru Sephora, Ulta, Off Saks Fifth Avenue, Amazon, Bath, Bed & Beyond, Old Navy, The Gap, Target and all have been seamless shopping experiences. They all have great customer service lines who are more than willing to help you should any problems or questions arise. You don’t get the full shopping experience of actually going into a store and seeing all they have to offer, but in today’s world, that full shopping experience isn’t available anyway, as far as I’m concerned. What they have online is more than what’s in their stores. Some businesses also won’t charge you for shipping if you pick-up at one of their local stores.

So what actually convinced me to shop online now versus in stores? I believe I get better deals, I find what I want and I find items that are more unique. Add to that the cost of saving gas so I’m not leaving a footprint, either. The sites are safer now and you do not have to leave your credit card information. You can find almost anything you can think of online. Whatever you order it comes in a plain brown wrapper. Wink-wink.  It’s a win-win all-around.

And if thrift stores are your thing, you can shop them online, too. Just google them and you’ll find a plethora of sites. Who knew?

Peace.

How To Buy Boots at Amazon.

Posted in amazon, budget online shopping, budget shopping, fashion, online shopping with tags , , , on January 5, 2017 by sorceressofthedark

It’s time to confess. I’m a bootaholic. I wear them year-round. I probably own more boots than shoes. I would rather be wearing a pair of boots than sandals in the summer. I don’t see the point of sneakers. Ok, unless you’re a runner. Even then, the sneakers that are high enough to look more like boots are better  looking as far as I’m concerned.

Anyway, since I’m on a kick at fleamarket Amazon, I decided to shop for boots at the site.

Omg, there are so many! But how would I know if they fit? The above fit perfectly and I couldn’t be happier. Black faux suede Women’s Thigh High Boots by Dream Pairs Upland are so comfortable. I love the gold metal band around the top of the heel. And they fit my skinny legs without falling down because I can tie them in the back.

Here’s my problem with fitting. Or I should say my obsession. If I’m in a store, I’ll try my size on and the next size to compare. Then I can’t decide which is better. I know, weird.

But even weirder is years back once my big brother and I went shoe shopping and he noticed what I was doing. He started laughing. I asked him what was so funny. He told me he did the same thing. So we sat down in the shoe store discussing this eerie phenomenon. Decided it must have started in our childhood and our mother somehow, but we had no idea how. All we knew is that we both couldn’t decide which size was better and it was this big chore for us. See how parents can screw you up in adulthood?

Ah…my Mordenmiss boots in red. I’ve received so many compliments on these! Mordenmiss Women’s Size Zipper Leather Ankle Toe Cap Boot Style 2 Red, when I first saw these, I couldn’t get them out of my mind. I ordered them within days of first seeing them and never looked back. The leather is soft, I can wear these all day and my feet are so comfortable. Absolutely perfect.

These tan suede babies are my go-to boots. I’ve been wearing these since the beginning of October through all kinds of weather, including snow and ice and they still look good. These are my Bella Marie Marcy -26 Women’s Casual Side Zipper Flat Snow Ankle  Bootie in Camel. What first caught my eye was the side zipper on the outside of the bootie rather than the inside. They’re lightly lined for warmth and extremely sturdy and somehow just stay super clean.

My Charles Albert Knee-High Faux Leather Boot With Buckle in Tan*. These are more than knee-high, actually over the knee. Turned out, these are a little too wide for me so I’m thinking of lacing up the top so I can close it to tighten it. The idea behind the boot is that you can also fold the top down, kind of like a pirate boot, but I prefer it over the knee.The color is good tho and blends well with a lot of outfits.

Even though I own quite a few, every year I get new ones. A woman can never have enough. So when I started shopping I read the reviews. How could I tell if they’d fit? Geez, some say they run small, some say larger than normal….I’m breaking out in a sweat here just reading the reviews. Finally, I notice some of the boot listings tell you the actual length of the boot in inches. Yes! This will do it. So I go and measure my favorite boot to compare and that’s how I ordered my first pair. They arrived and fit great. And that’s how I’ve continued to order my boots….um…my next 3 pairs that I ordered this year. Ok , 4 pairs.  Alright….4 pairs and 1 ice pair for when I have to walk on ice. There. Total of 5.

All necessary as you can see. All different from each other. Different colors, different styles. I adore each of them.

Just do a basic search for “women’s boots” on Amazon and you’ll come up with about 461,533 hits on women’s boots to choose from in the leisure of your own abode. You can narrow the search down to dress, casual, snow, above-the-knee, below-the-knee, booties, color, etc. and even by size and color. Think of shopping online this way. You’re not leaving an imprint by  driving around from store to store to store. Instead, you’re looking online and finding pretty much the same merchandise at the same or even lower prices. You don’t have to shop Amazon. That’s just one online site. I like them because of Prime benefits. (Read about Prime in yesterday’s post.) Oh, and for some, the best part? You don’t have to deal with any sales associates.

Regardless, have fun shopping, watch your money and always look for the best buys!

Peace.

Avon Timeless Perfume…40 Years Strong.

Posted in aldehydes, amber, bergamot, budget online shopping, budget shopping, cedar, chypre floral, gardenia, iris, jasmine, lemon, musk, opoponax, patchouli, peach, rose, Timeless, tonka bean, vanilla with tags , , , , , on June 24, 2014 by sorceressofthedark
Timeless.

Timeless.

While  vintage Timeless plays the aldehydes strongly, the newer version is a creamier mix of honeyed vanilla that hits home right away. The honeyed vanilla mix takes time in the vintage to arrive, but the wait is well worth it. The vintage version lasts much, much longer, is deeper in tone and reminiscent of Shalimar. Gardenia brings greenness, iris brings a rich earthiness, while jasmine carries this scent strongly to wonderful heights. There are so many notes in this perfume that mix together wonderfully to make it a blend that is pleasantly aromatic, elegant and one that belies its’ own price tag.
Timeless is a perfume that could be worn anywhere-to dinner, to an event, to a gallery or with jeans. It is a perfume that wears the person, the person doesn’t wear it. It is a mature fragrance, one that reminds you of notes found in many other remembered classics, like Shalimar or Emeraude or one of the Chanels. Its’ rich warmth is its’ own elegance.
This is a fragrance that is wearable year-round and since Avon offers shower gels, body creams and deodorants at a ridiculously low price, you can pamper yourself with a complete set.  Yes, Timeless is an Avon production that was created in 1974 and is still going strong today in 2014, 40 years later.
Timeless wraps itself around you with a graceful quality reminiscent of older perfumes. You can wrap yourself in its luxuriousness easily just as you would an over-sized cable-knit sweater or a tuxedo jacket. It just fits quality, whatever you’re wearing, whatever you’re doing. It ripens into a mature scent that fully explores its many faceted notes as the hours go by.

For its price, it absolutely cannot be beat. It fools many when they attempt to guess what perfume it is that you’re wearing, and there is a reason why. The tonka bean, the opoponax, the vanilla, the patchouli and the amber are all similar ingredients to a few heavyweights in the classic perfume market and Timeless incorporates them excellently.
Vintage Timeless takes longer to develop on your skin, works longer to develop through its notes and stages and is more full-bodied. With today’s version of Timeless, its end is its beginning. It packs a punch, yes, but you miss the soapy aldehydes in the beginning. The older bottle is amber glass, silverish-gold cap, cognac-colored liquid splash and 2 oz.

The new is in a clear spray bottle with a rose hued cap, a light golden liquid and 1.7 oz. Longevity is about four hours for the new and much longer for the vintage.
Both versions are wonderful. The choice to make is whether you want to explore a more vintage feel for aldehydes and a soapy feel, a journey through a perfumes character when you choose the older version or if you’d rather go for the gusto with the newest version which gives you the immediate sense of scent. There is no wait, you arrive at your final destination immediately. Either way, Timeless should be a perfume every woman should try.

Frankly, for under $10, it’s a chypre floral that keeps on giving that lasts an incredible amount of time. It’s sweet, warm, smoky, spicy, powdery, balsamic and can be a bit thick if sprayed on too heavily. Avon has been producing perfumes for decades, some have been hits, some have been misses. Timeless is one that is a hit. Give it a shot.

Top Notes: Aldehydes, Gardenia, Peach, Bergamot, Lemon.

Middle Notes: Iris, Patchouli, Jasmine, Cedar, Rose.

Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Amber, Opoponax, Musk, Vanilla.

Timeless is available online, directly through the Avon catalog or through an Avon representative.

Peace.

Dollar Store Bargains For Make-Up and Assorted Sundries …Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things?

Posted in 99 Cents Only, budget online shopping, budget shopping, cosmetics, Disco Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Giant, Dollar Tree, E.L.F., Family Dollar, Jordana, L.A. Colors, online shopping, Real Deal Dollar, Retailers, shopping on a budget with tags , , , , , on December 17, 2013 by sorceressofthedark

Ever shop the dollar store for make-up?Have you perused the beauty aisle to see what’s on the shelves? You just might be surprised. Brand names for a dollar. Items that do the trick for a lot less. And hey, for a buck, you can’t go wrong.

Every time I hit a dollar store I make sure I talk a walk down the beauty aisle just to see what’s on their shelves. What brands they might be stocking today. I’ve seen E.L.F., L.A.Colors, NYX, Sally Hansen, L’oreal and Jordana just to name a few. Not sure of these brands? Google the names for reviews of their products and see what other consumers have to say about them. That should give you a good idea whether you’d be happy with putting out a buck for that mascara or lipstick.

The founders of E.L.F. developed their business after noticing women shopping for cosmetics in a dollar store. The story goes that they noticed women in high-end vehicles, dressed in designer clothing, filling their carts with dollar bargains of make-up and other assorted sundries. They quickly designed a plan to develop affordable make-up and market it at a price-point beginning at dollar. That was in 2004 and the rest is history. Read more about E.L.F. here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E.l.f._Cosmetics.

Here’s another dollar store find that’s ridiculously fabulous for a buck and I wouldn’t be without it. Not to mention the compliments that I’ve received on my make-up when I’ve only used this color stick as a lipstick, blush and eyeshadow. That’s right. It’s called the “All-In-One” by LA Colors for a reason, and believe me when I say, you don’t need anything else, besides your mascara, setting powder, and eyebrow powder for a natural look that is so very easy and looks really good.
The color that I chose is Pink Satin. I’m fair, blue-eyed and blonde and it works wonderfully for my skin tone. I’ve been asked what color lipstick I’m wearing, or what color blush I have on, what eyeshadow I’m wearing, etc., when all I’m wearing is just this pencil. It’s a creamy, lush, thick pencil that goes on smoothly wherever you place it. It glides up, so you don’t have to worry about sharpening it. It lasts forever. This color is a deeper rosy hue that seems to fit my complexion, and it bring depth to my eyes. I use it in the creases only for a more natural look. It seems to last all day long, but I also do use a setting powder. What a find for a buck! A similar department store stick will easily cost you twenty dollars or more.

I shop department stores, Sephora, Ulta and online for my make-up. But that doesn’t stop me from haunting the aisles of any dollar store to see what they may have. I’ve picked up nail polish, mascara, lipsticks, eyeshadows, highlighters, makeup brushes, under-eye pads, and assorted other goodies, all  name brands at a buck apiece. In today’s economy, it’s worth shopping around. Know your brands, know what you’re looking for and know your products.

Dollar stores go under a lot of different names, and here are just a few:  Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Disco Dollar, Real Deal Dollar Store, Family Dollar, Dollar Giant, 99 Cents Only. More are popping up every day and I’m sure you can ask in your location where they might be. Most if not all  take credit and debit cards and some also have online shopping.

But here’s the important caveat, don’t waste money, even if it’s a dollar on something you won’t use. Shop wisely, be educated about your products and you’ll always be the educated consumer. Just have fun shopping with that dollar bill. It’s easy to spend it, thinking it’s only a dollar. But if you’re not going to use the product, don’t buy it. And some of the dollar stores have a “no refund” policy.

Peace.

Why Do People Buy and Wear Those Things? Understated Elegance…Do You Wear It?

Understated Elegance, Do You Wear It?

Understated Elegance, Do You Wear It?

Understated Elegance. It is an expression of what you are. Who you represent. What you wear. All that you encompass. Some people are born with it and others work all their life to obtain it. All the money in the world cannot attain it. Buying the most expensive clothing in the chicest boutiques or the most exclusive department stores will not grant you admittance to the world of elegance.

Audrey Hepburn had it. So did Katherine Hepburn. Coco Chanel exuded elegance. Barbara Stanwyck graced both the movies and television.  Madeleine Carroll, an early film star, considered a beautiful woman, was known for her extensive career in film, television and radio. Elizabeth Taylor’s violet eyes shone elegance at their viewers. Grace Kelly won the heart of a prince. Lauren Bacall simply had to look you in the eye and you knew she had it. Marlene Dietrich’s voice and sultry gaze did it all. Suzy Parker sold magazines in the 1950’s because women wanted her elegance.

How can you translate their elegance into today’s vintage styles? How do you become the elegant woman of yesteryear? It’s not as difficult as you might think. It’s a transition of thinking, of feeling and wanting to be special. It is a way of carrying yourself. It is an air of confidence. It’s how you tell you the world “I’m me, it’s great to be me and I feel good today!”

Dorian Leigh, older sister of Suzy Parker, signed with the Ford Agency on one condition. That they would take her little sister. Her little sister was Suzy Parker. Dorian also went on to become the “Fire and Ice” spokesperson for Revlon’s makeup line. Fire and Ice is one of their top red lipstick colors and is still available today. Pick it up at where Revlon cosmetics are sold to recreate the elegant siren look of the 1950’s. It’s a complementary color for many skin tones and is why Fire and Ice has been around since 1952. It’s a great vintage color that is just as popular today and gives you a feeling of old-time elegance.

The original ad read…”For you who love to flirt with fire…who dare to skate on thin ice…a lush and passionate scarlet…like flaming diamonds dancing on the moon”. What woman wouldn’t be enticed to wear this lipstick and feel absolutely enticingly elegant with pouting lips? It is a beautiful shade of red with just the right amount of blue in it to mix with some orangey tones. It does have a semi-gloss finish. Below is the original 1952 ad with the quiz that asks women if “they are made for Fire and Ice”? Click on the image and take the quiz to see if you are indeed a Fire and Ice woman of today.

Hedy Lamarr, Jessica Biel, and Dorian Leigh were just a few women in the ads for Revlon. I’m sure many actresses have worn this color. It’s been around for 59 years and that certainly says something for staying power in a  lipstick color.

Fashion repeats itself, always. It goes around in cycles. We all have our favorite decades that we admire. I always admired the women of the 1940’s. In high school, I would mix and match clothing from the 1940’s with store-bought items. I scoured thrift shops and the Salvation Army looking for pieces that had good labels. People still ask me today where I buy some of my pieces. When I tell them how old something actually is, they are astounded.

It’s important to learn how to take care of the older pieces. Back in those decades, clothing was not wash and wear. Most of it was dry cleanable. Some of it is hand-washable now. Some pieces you can put in your dryer with special cleaners that you can buy yourself. The most important part of buying older clothing when you want to look elegant is knowing what looked good back then will look classic now.

Study pictures of the old movie stars. Look at Hollywood icons and how they dressed. Find your style and adapt it to you. You don’t have to copy it exactly. After all, it’s 2011 and what worked yesterday isn’t going to work today. But you can take a jacket from 1945 and wear it with a great pair of skinny jeans or cropped trousers, wedge booties and a pashmina scarf. Add some great rhinestone jewelry or a string of pearls easily found at thrift shops. Throw on a Fascinator hat and the world becomes your audience.

Like hats? The stars wore them all the time. Look at the styles and head to your local department stores to try on what looks best for your face shape. Wear a hat with confidence and chutzpah. There’s no better feeling in the world than a woman with confidence, and you can have that feeling when you know you look good. A head-turning online shop for hats is villagehatshop. I’ve included one of their Fascinator hats in the last collage. They can be located at http://www.villagehatshop.com/womens-hats.html.

The next collage features ten pictures, five from the past, and five from the present. The top row are all present-day runway photos. I’ve compared those designs and put them on top of vintage photos that resemble similar outfits. Fashion designers look to the past for inspiration. Amazing!

Fashion Repeats Itself, The 1940's.

Fashion Repeats Itself, The 1940's.

Designers from the runway above listed from left to right: diesel, unidentified, John Galliano, MiuMiu, and Gucci. What goes around, comes around, as the saying goes. Fashion really does repeat itself. Borrow from the past and make it your own.

Take a look at the next collage I’ve put together. It shows a blazer from the 1940’s. Shop around at vintage stores, thrift shops and you might find one. It takes time but if you’re persistent, you will. I found a pattern online for a top that you can knit. It’s also available online from Barnes and Noble. The crop trousers are new, as are the wedge shoes. The trousers can be located at http://shop.dollhouse.com/.  The hat, so stylish, so impeccably chic, is reminiscent of the 1940’s but new. Persistance pays off in putting together a vintage look that will make people stop and ask you where did you get that outfit?

1940's Outfit You Can Put Together.

Look Likes Vintage & Some Of It Is...

Vintage clothing is without a doubt worth the time, patience and extra care you put into it. It’s individuality. It’s the you that you choose to be. It class and elegance. It’s understated elegance.

Peace.

Sorceress.
