Saksy Savings & Event

My friends at Saks recently sent me an event invite and a coupon, and told me I could share it with you.

The event, cleverly named “Choos Your Shoes” is a night to pamper and spa with your friends while shoe shopping. Not unlike what my heaven will look like…

If you do realize that you have a few Benjamins to spare (I unfortunately do not thanks to house renovations and landscaping bills…boo) and spring for a new pair of Jimmy Choos, you’ll get a free Choo 24:7 tote bag. I talked about the new 24:7 line here.

Saks also sent me a coupon to share with you. BTW, I’m not being paid to tell you about this and I don’t get any residuals if you use this, just so you know. I just want to share in case you were planning on buying something, and could use the discount!

I’m on the hunt for some new mascara (aren’t we all). I read this article about the top five mascaras based on expert reviews, so I’m going to stop in and give them a try and use my coupon if I decide to make a purchase! I’ll let you know if any of the mascaras rock my world! : ) Have a great weekend!

Win a Jimmy Choo Shoe Wardrobe

They are some of the most expensive shoes money can buy. Each one hand-stitched and haute couture. They’re Jimmy Choos.

Normally, you’d have to shell out a good $800 to own a pair of these show stopping shoes. But I just got an email from Cincinnati Saks telling me about a contest where you can win an entire Jimmy Choo shoe wardrobe!

Apparently, here’s how it works: You create any outfit using at least one pair of shoes from the Jimmy Choo 24:7 collection and save it on this Closet Couture site. You can style outfits using Choo handbags, too. Contest ends on April 10th. Jimmy Choo will pick the three winners to receive a shoe wardrobe.

Not sure what they’re basing their decision on (doesn’t even explain this in the contest rules either) but I do know that there are Jimmy Choos at stake so I will be creating lots of outfits on this site to hopefully fit their fancy. Can you believe that? They’re not just giving away one pair. They’re giving away a whole wardrobe of these posh pumps! (I did some digging and it only ends up being three shoes they’re giving away, but still, that’s pretty good!)

After playing with this Closet Couture site to submit my first look, I’ve decided I REALLY like it. You can “follow” certain designers and/or stores, and see what their latest and greatest stuff is. You can style your outfit using the dresses, tops, skirts, pants, belts, blazers, shoes, etc on the site. It looks like you can even upload pics of your own clothing to incorporate those items into the outfits you style on the site. I didn’t try that uploader function out yet, but I love the concept.

I did, however, create a look that I absolutely LOVE! For the past month, I’ve been on the look out for a pretty white dress for our Night in White event this weekend (tickets are almost sold out by the way, get yours today!). I had in my mind that I didn’t want a bright white, I wanted it to be kind of a winter white/cream or even beige-y color. I actually really liked the dress Stacy London was wearing when I interviewed her last week. In that interview, she mentioned that nude, beige, and other muted tones are in for Spring/Summer, so I for sure want to get a dress in one of those colors.

I found the perfect dress and shoe for this week’s big event! (Pictured below – using Closet Couture’s cool outfit sharing tool!) Now, all I need to do is find an extra $1200 laying around to purchase this lush look. :-/ Hey, a girl can dream, right?

And while we’re talking about Choos, we published an interesting article on Cincy Chic a while back about heels raising havoc on foot health – and why Jimmy Choos are an exception to the rule. Click here to read the article and learn why you get what you pay for when you buy Choo’s shoes.

I Think I Love Choo

Me: “I touched my first Choo. I think I love Choo.”

My Sister-in-Law, Melissa: “I love Choo, too.”

chooWell, I’m no longer a Jimmy Choo virgin. I have heard of these magnificent creatures, studied them online, but never been close enough to touch one. Let alone try one on.

But after last night’s gala at Nordstrom, I had the pleasure of meeting Jimmy Choo and all his soleful friends like Valentino, Nanette Lepore and Tory Burch.

They only had one pair left of the Choos you see to the right and let me tell you, they were a sight to be seen. They were as light as a feather and super comfy (according to Melissa, who had the Cinderella luxury of being able to perfectly fit in them). But I would have had to sell my car and walk home in them had I purchased them… they had a – get this – $1100 price tag!! I think that’s the most expensive pair of shoes I’ve ever touched in my life! But hey, a girl can dream.

Studs were everywhere. On clutches, ballet flats, even a beret! “What I Wore Today” called that trend long ago though. Good eye, Kasmira!

Speaking of fun fashion, I have a couple things I want to mention. This Friday (tomorrow, Sept. 25), Cincy Chic is hosting a Wearable Art fashion show at Sandra Small Gallery in Covington. I definitely encourage you to check it out if you want to see the latest fall fashions, with an artsy twist and cutting edge flair. (Check out the video below for a sneak peak of the fashion show)

Now, I am off to meet with Rihanna’s Stylist Mariel Haenn to talk about some hair and makeup trends that we can take from Tinseltown to the Tri-State. Stay tuned…
