A Fabulously Frugal Fashion Find: The $12 Old Navy Relaxed Slub-Knit Tank

Published in: Fashion

Wearing my latest budget fashion find, the Old Navy Relaxed Slub-Knit Tank

Yeah, this green print Relaxed Slub-Knit Tank by Old Navy is only $12! But wait, it gets better. When I saw it at the store yesterday, it was on sale for $4!

I couldn’t say no, so I grabbed two — the print I’m wearing here, and another one in a bright solid orange.

They’re pretty basic relaxed-fit tanks, 60% cotton, 40% modal (which equals 100% soft), but you can jazz them up with some jewelry or other accessories.

They’re also machine washable (YAY!), although I won’t be putting them in the dryer. The material is on the thinner side, and every other thin Old Navy top I’ve stuck in the dryer has always ended up with holes.

So it’s air dry all the way, baby!

Also, if you can, try them on in the store, because these run big, and because you might be able to get a better price than the $12 listed online. I’d size down. Plus, Old Navy’s sizing tends to vary a lot, even among different colors of the same shirt.

Did you hit up any sales over the Fourth of July weekend? Inquiring shopping-loving minds want to know.

Would You Wear These Shoes? The Steve Madden Jillyy Platform Sandal

Steve Madden Jillyy Platform Sandal ($149.95)

Oh, hell yeah, I’d wear ’em, even though that heel is straight-up CRAY (it’s 5-1/2″ with a 1-1/2″ platform). I’d be so tall in these… It would be GLORIOUS!!

I’d have to keep them strictly as house-to-the-restaurant-and-back shoes, though. Things like that. Definitely NO stairs or everyday errands. I can’t imagine ever actually driving in these…

They’re the Jillyy Platform Sandals by Steve Madden, by the way ($149).

Would you wear these shoes?

Tan, Blue or Black?

Published in: Fashion

I spotted these suede wedges by Halogen at Nordies yesterday and fell in love (just to look, not to get), but I like all of the colors!

Which one do you like best — the tan, blue or black?

I’d probably go for the blue, just for that pop o’ color, but the other two would be more versatile (the tan pair would make my legs look longer, which is a high priority when you’re a shorty! — and the black ones I know I’d be able to wear with everything).

Fashion dilemmas… :)

P.S. On the subject of shoes, what was the last pair you got?

Have You Been to Ann Taylor Lately?

Published in: Fashion

I used to think that Ann Taylor was too stuffy for me, and I still think it’s kind of stuffy, but they’ve got some really cute clothes. I’ve purchased a few things from them over the past couple months, like I’ve gotten some accessories, a couple necklaces, a scarf, a linen tank top and a jacket (I wore it last week).

They always seem to have some kind of sale, too, and some of them are HUGE, like the 50% off ones, some for in-store and some are just online.

So check out Ann Taylor next time you pass by the store at the mall. I also think that the fit is better, and the fabric and the sizing are more consistent, than LOFT, their sister store.

I got a couple of linen tees from LOFT last spring, and also a linen tank at Ann Taylor, and the tank is definitely softer than the tees.

Have you done any shopping at Ann Taylor lately?

It’s been a hot one here in Marin County today! Tabs has been running the ceiling fan ragged all day long. I’m heading out to meet my friend Courtney for dinner, and since it should (fingers crossed) cool off a little this evening, I’ll be wearing this seersucker jacket by Ann Taylor, a linen tank, skinnies and few of my current favorite pieces of jewelry (including a pair of cat lady studs El Hub got me for my birthday!).
