Oh sweet blogging friends it's a glorious day because it's Big Mama's Fashion Fiesta. Y'all know I love to chat fashion and I'm super excited to share two of my favorite closet must-haves. Now it is a fiesta as well so I feel we can only do this properly with food, so grab some guacamole and chips and have a seat.
1. I'll start with my favorite. Have I mentioned to y'all that I'm 5'9"? For years I have searched Banana Republic, Gap, Old Navy, you name it for a tee long enough so that I would not have to spend my days pulling down it down for fear that skin would be showing. And to top it off I live in the great state of Texas where layering is really out of the question for fear that one may pass out from heat stroke. Oh it drove me crazy. But just a few weeks ago I happened to be surfing through the Internet when I found the Hip-T. Oh friends, let me tell you that I'm pretty sure the heavens did sing when I came across this site. This product is just pure genius I tell you. I ordered the black lace one and wear it consistently because it totally does the job. No one can even tell, except for when I tell them and then they scream at the awesomeness of it. I'm no longer pulling down my tee and I love the layered look it gives. For $19.95 stock up; it is worth every penny. Your closet will thank you.
2. I have a slight shoe fetish (oops on my previous late night spelling). Okay, a big one. I love shoes, especially flip-flops. You just can't go wrong with flip-flops. I had ordered a pair of slacks from Kohl's for boy and when they arrived they were 5 sizes off so I just jumped in the car and headed to Kohl's to return them. I took a quick detour through the shoes in the purse section and look at these babies.
How cute could these be! And guess what. They are $10. $10!! This purchase deserved a skip out of the store. The other day a lady came up to me and was like "I love your shoes, you got those at Nordstrom's right?" She about passed out when I told her they were $10 at Kohl's. A shoe bargain has that powerful effect.
