Check Out These TOMS Designed by Charlize Theron! @thefind

Check Out These TOMS Designed by Charlize Theron! @thefind featured on
We already thought Charlize Theron could do no wrong – from her stellar acting skills to her flawless Oscars red carpet style (shaved head and all!) – and now she's partnering up with TOMS to bring her charitable work in Africa to the forefront.

Comfy-chic shoe brand TOMS is known for being charitable – TOMS founder (and Amazing Race alum) Blake Mycoskie gives a pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair of shoes sold. And now TOMS is teaming up with Charlize for her own line of TOMS. The cheery orange-hued flats, dubbed Outreach Classics, help benefit the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, which helps keep African youth safe from HIV/AIDS. Find out more about the organization, and how you can help benefit CTAOP and get your own summer-ready pair of Charlize-designed TOMS, check out the official website here.

Waxelene trumps Vaseline, now in a convenient flip-top tube! @waxelene

Waxelene trumps Vaseline, now in a convenient flip-top tube! @waxelene featured on

Waxelene renders petroleum jelly-based products null and void, in my book! This creamy, beeswax gel is my go-to beauty product: dab a little on your lips to moisturize cracked lips, or turn you fave lip color into a sheer gloss. Try some on heels and elbows or massage some into your cuticles to look as if you had a manicure the day before. A delicious concoction of Vitamin E, rosemary oil, soybean oil and beeswax gives this creamy gel an infusion of natural goodness. Look for Waxelene at you local Whole Foods, CVS or Anthropologie stores. It's $4.99 per tube.

Available in three different color combinations, designed to mimic the ever-popular dip-dyed look, these watches provide a fun, modern pop of color to any warm-weather ensemble! And like most of Nixon's must-haves, these dip-dyed watches are wallet-friendly too at a reasonable $75 a pop.

A Brooklyn Industries shift dress pays homage to Lilly Pulitzer! @BKLNIndustries @LillyPulitzer


With a nod to Lilli Pulitzer, the Queen of sunny florals who recently passed on, this cheery shift dress could be your spring go-to piece. Just add a navy cardigan, strappy heels and a little clutch purse for an evening out. Make it office-friendly with sheer hose and pumps, and maybe a shrunken blazer. Either way, it's a print that would make Ms. Pulitzer smile. Carmen Print Shift dress is $44.99 from Brooklyn Industries.

Ankle booties with a Western edge for spring, from @ALDO_Shoes!

AnkleI was NOT shopping for booties when I, on a whim, stopped into the ALDO store. But these ankle booties are just about perfect, with a hint of western styling, clean lines, not-too-high heel... I can imagine them with skinny jeans, or even tights and a skirt as spring approaches. The leather is soft and supple with a solid sole. A veritable steal at $100.00 from an ALDO near you!

Let them eat cake! These handbags are IT! @IntlCulCenter

Can you spot your favorite bag? How about that cherry red Chanel? Look again closely, because all these handbags are actually cakes! It's amazing what a bit of creativity and craftsmanship can produce. These "purse" cakes were made by the students of the Cake Techniques and Design program at the International Culinary Center in NYC. Bravo, students!

Sky Box view of BCBG & Richard Chai at NYFW, thanks to @AmericanExpress! @BCBGMAXAZRIA,

Sky Box view of BCBG & Richard Chai at NYFW, thanks to @AmericanExpress! @BCBGMAXAZRIA,  featured on

Fashion Week opened in NY on Thursday, and thanks to my friend, I was able to catch a glimpse of the BCBG Max Azria (top) and Richard Chai shows (left)! I've been blogging about fashion deals since 2007, so it was a wonderful experience to see the clothes at the beginning of the fashion cycle, before they've hit the stores, and ultimately the sale racks! As we sat in the AMEX Sky Box, perched high above the runways, sipping prosecco, we watched the fall lineup for BCBG Max Azria, filled with loose, layered silhouettes in subtle shades of black, white, grey and oxblood. I might start sporting a knitted cap next fall (see top photo), since all the models were wearing them. It seemed to make all the clothes "les Mis" cool. Then, the show by Richard Chai (mostly menswear) had a handful of women's wear looks that caught my eye (see the jewel-toned purple dress, lower left). I might be inspired to work more of that vibrant purple into my fall pallette... maybe it will even be the Color of 2014!

Delightfully deco, a la Marni at! @BarneysNY

Nothing makes a statement quite like a cuff bracelet or heavy bangle. You can throw on a vintage T-shirt, or dress to the nines, and the minute you slip on one of these bracelets, you'll be screaming "was running late, but had to dash off to that opening...", so nonchalant, and breezy. And now that Barney's has launched, designer deals are just a click away! No more scrummaging at the Warehouse Sale--or maybe you enjoy the thrill of the find! Either way, check these out: Marni's Ridges Bangle, regularly $415.00, here $169.00 and  Marni's Coal Square Deco Bangle, regularly $$480.00, here $189.00, both at

Get Ready to Welcome Spring With Full Force, Thanks to These Floral Booties! @thefind

It may still be only January, but let's face it – the fashion world is way ahead of the present dreary winter weather. Flouncy skirts, festive maxi dresses, and brand-new swimwear galore – it's hard not to feel a little premature spring fever with so many warm-weather fabulousness surrounding us in every shop window and online boutique email newsletter. While you can shop these new springy arrivals until you drop, sadly you can't wear most of them yet while the snow is still threatening to fall, but this season's floral booties may be an exception! A great winter-to-spring transition piece, these cold-weather-friendly booties won't leave you freezing your toes off, but they're undeniably fashion-forward and ready to embrace spring! From chunky lace-up booties to pull-on ankle boots you can wear with anything from skinny jeans to a sweater dress and tights (or a sundress when spring finally arrives), it's nice to find a spring fashion item you can actually enjoy now! Pictured above: Forever 21 Floral Lace-Up Booties, Charlotte Russe Lace-Up Platform Heel Bootie, Rag & Bone Floral Newbury Booties, Maison Martin Margiela Line 22 Floral Boot, and Topshop ADONIS2 Heavy Cut Out Boots.

Dove gray oxfords with a lacy twist, $98 from @Anthropologie! @Anthropologie featured on
Never thought lacy and suede could be used to describe a single item, but true to the moment, these oxfords are indeed both! And just in time for a lighter spring pallette, too. Picture them with rolled up boyfriend jeans, even cut off denim shorts. Or maybe a denim mini skirt... possibilities are endless. They're $98.00 from Anthropologie.

Simple life, simple beauty, wearing jewelry by @Pantheia !

Simple life, simple beauty, wearing jewelry by @Pantheia ! featured on

If there was ever a time when the simple life seemed most appealing, that time must be now! Let your mind now wander off to the balmy shores of Bali, where local artisans use age-old techniques to craft beautiful jewelry in bronze, silver, resin and semi-precious stones for Pantheia. My treasures from Pantheia arrived in a handmade box shaped from dried banana leaves, only hinting at what was to be found inside! The Lunar Pendant (top, right) is a craggy, textured disc, with a lone stone, beautiful over a black blouse, for $75.00, and the Four Seasons earrings in silver capture the texture of a soursop leaf under amber resin (bottom, right), for $100.00. All from Pantheia. Just divine!
