Memo 144: On the Foot

To: All
From: Me
Date: July 29, 2014
Subject: Make A Statement with Sophia Webster

Nothing does my spirit right like a good statement shoe. I will be the first to admit that this Sophia Webster Mila Sandal was a good mix between intriguing and intimidating. I just didn't know how it would look on the foot. Some statement shoes can be a little too much for life but that wasn't the case with this particular shoe. She turned out to be a real black-suede-caged-sandal winner.

TWP Approved! - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Top Picks

I like a good routine from time to time. So, it should come as no surprise that I'm pretty religious about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. The super sized 32 oz. Purity facial wash by Philosophy gets purchased every single year. When I am getting low, I know the sale is nearby. It is hands down the best and most gentle facial cleanser that I have had the pleasure of experiencing. Also, I don't mind spending my hard earned pennies with Nordstrom because they probably have one of the best customer service and return policies known to man.

A few things about this sale:
  • If you haven't had time to shop the Anniversary sale, don't freak out, you have plenty of time. The sale ends on August 3rd.
  • If you shop the sale and decide later on that you don't love your items, there are free returns and free shipping and I quote "all the time". Understand me when I say, they are the best at this customer service game.
  • If you get overwhelmed by the stores or even the online experience, again don't loose your cool, I've shopped the sale for you and selected a few of my top picks from the sale:

Memo 143: The Bronze & Army Green Brigade

To: All
From: Me
Date: July 23, 2014
Subject: Studs + Sequins

Who doesn't love a little sequin and stud thrown into the mix? I mean really. For a night out on the town with your main squeeze or with the girls, add a little sparkle to your life with a mix of studded sequin texture. This look has just the right mix where it's not an over powering gaudy mess but more of an army green and bronze sexy hot freshness.  For date night and a night out with the girls, sexy hot freshness always wins!

Memo 142: Brunch & Bottomless Mimosas

To: All
From: Me
Date: July 10, 2014
Subject: A Few of My Favorite Things

Singing "These are a few of my favorite things…"

You all already know how I feel about brunch and then don't let there be unlimited (fill in the blank with your favorite breakfast cocktail) because that is my dream meal! 

So, when I saw this "Brunch & Bottomless Mimosas" t-shirt from Tees in the Trap, I felt as if they made it specifically for me! Tees in the Trap is all about all things pop culture. Most of your favorite quotes from some of your favorite reality TV stars will be found in the trap. Besides this "Brunch & Bottomless Mimosas" t-shirt, I may be a little obsessed with the "My Ideal Weight is Idris Elba on Top of Me" shirt. Somebody had to say it! 

And yes, you can even "wake up like this".

Memo 141: Put the Blue in Red, White and Blue!

Subject: The Statement Shoe

Happy Fourth of July Eve! *twirls with sparklers in hand*

So, we are all pretty clear that I have a shoe obsession, correct? Back in the spring, I highlighted these Colorblock PVC Sandals from Fendi as one of my top picks for Spring. 

Well, that end of the season sale hit and I was stalking these babies like they were on sale at the end of the season (because they were). It's a tricky game to play but sometimes you come out a winner. 

Paired with this simple t-shirt dress, the shoes are definitely making a statement!
